From Raya CarlisleAriana & 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.

From TOAST Santa BarbaraNatalya and Aaron were high school sweethearts whose paths led them back to each other after they finished college. They decided Santa Barbara was an ideal destination wedding location for their intimate wedding and families, who were primarily based in Tennessee and the East Coast. San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito welcomed guests for an entire weekend of celebrations!

The celebrations kicked off on Thursday with welcome cocktails under the Loquat trees at the San Ysidro Ranch Wine Cellar Patio. The next evening, the groom’s parents hosted a rehearsal at the Hydrangea Cottage. The wedding day saw the couple married on one of the garden lawns followed by cocktails in the garden, dinner on the Stonehouse Restaurant patio and dancing and dessert inside the Stonehouse itself.

The ceremony chairs were dressed in the cutest School Girl seat cushions from La Tavola Linen. Acknowledging the bride’s love of animals, boxwood topiary animals, embellished with floral treatments and ribbons, were placed around the cocktail reception space.

A Scottish bagpiper led guests from the cocktail reception to the dinner reception. Garden roses in all shade of blush and pinks topped the tables alongside tall taper candles in silver candlesticks. Close family friend, country music artist, Philip Claypool serenaded the couple and their guests as a special treat.

For dessert, in addition to the wedding cake covered in sugared four-leaf clovers, a grooms cake was created in the likeness of the couple’s dog. Complimenting the cake options, ice cream sandwiches from Nyes Ice Cream Sandwiches, a favorite of the couple’s, were flown in from North Carolina, much to the delight of all the guests. The evening ended with a sparkling send off as the couple departed in a vintage Mercedes convertible. Cheers to Natalya and Aaron!

Whimsical Pink Wedding San Ysidro Ranch

Y’all know we go weak at the knees for a San Ysidro Ranch affair, but when it happens to include a pro golfer Groom and his designer Bride? Well, let’s just say we were smitten from the get-go. Fiore Beauty ensured all eyes were on the Bride, while fuchsia floral crowns and flirty accents set the scene. With a pretty palette, and details galore – Samuel Lippke Studios captured a gallery that defines pretty.

From Samuel Lippke StudiosWe just adore Kristy & Scott’s wedding! Scott is on the PGA tour as one of the youngest professional golfers & Kristy worked as a designer for Ralph Lauren before moving to POLO, where she met the love of her life while getting him sponsored! These stunning newlyweds were a breeze for Samuel to photograph – they both looked amazing and their love for each other is effortless and beautiful. The two were so laid back that even when a power outage threatened their reception, they didn’t even mind; candlelight dinners are always more romantic anyway, right? We definitely agree.

We were blown away by how beautiful San Ysidro Ranch was & the florals by BloomBox enhanced it so well. We love the deep fuchsia flowers BloomBox used for the bridemaids’ floral crowns. As always, Samuel loved working with the planning gurus from Details Details; Chelsea Navran was an amazing coordinator. Put all of that work together with Kristy’s Oscar de la Renta dress, Scott’s Hugo Boss suit, & the bridesmaids’ colorful M Missoni dresses and you have one amazing event!
