There are gorgeous weddings, and then there are gorgeous weddings like this one captured by Raya Carlisle. It’s elegant autumn perfection designed beautifully by Green Ribbon Parties with florals from Brown Paper Design and paper from Copper Willow Paper Studio, and it’s all waiting for you here.
From Raya Carlisle…Ariana & Tom chose Montecito Country Club for it’s classic charm and quintessential Santa Barbara feel. Abundant florals, garlands and wreaths in green, blush and deep burgundy played off the fall season and created a feeling of undone elegance. The menu played to Ariana’s Italian heritage, with many sentimental elements woven throughout the day including her parents’ cake topper, champagne coupes and traditional Italian wedding cookies.
While Ariana Menichini & Tom Wellington were falling in love with each other they were also falling in love with the beautiful town of Montecito, just north of their Los Angeles home. Ariana and Tom lead busy lives, she as the CEO of Stadium Chic, a fashion forward sports licensed apparel line for women, and he as a partner at William Morris Endeavor Entertainment. They became engaged in Montecito and wanted to share the beauty of their favorite place with their friends and family.
