From The Bride…Brett and I met 8 years ago at a New Year’s Eve party in New York City. After many years together in New York, we decided to move across the country to start a new life together in Santa Barbara, California. When we got engaged and started thinking about wedding locations, we knew there would be no better way to show our new hometown to our closest family and friends.
We toured a few properties and fell in love with the beautiful gardens at the Butterfly Lane Estate. The ceremony was held in the fern garden where guests were greeted with champagne and invited to gather herbs and flowers for tossing from a vintage potting bench. Instead of a traditional guest book, we used a stack of vintage Santa Barbara post cards and Lenny, our Goldendoodle, was the dog of honor. Following the ceremony, we danced our way back down the aisle to a bluegrass version of the Beatles “I’ve Just Seen a Face.”
Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’ouevres in the garden before making their way to dinner and dancing. Escort cards were clipped to an eclectic mix of hanging white frames to guide guests to their tables. String lighting and chandeliers were hung over the reception area, and dark wood tables were decorated with natural runners, cream and green floral centerpieces, and lots of candlelight. Guests danced all evening to an 8-piece band and after dinner, confetti cake was passed and a bourbon bar opened. We finished the evening on the upper deck of the estate with late-night fried chicken sliders.
Our wedding day was truly the best day of our lives. With an incredible team of vendors and our fantastic coordinator, we were able to relax and enjoy every moment.

From B. Schwartz Photography…When you combine two people so in love, their Santa Barbara estate, and 50 of their closest friends and family the outcome is what wedding dreams are made of.
Kim from Toast Santa Barbara perfectly executed Joe and Erica’s dream of an elegant backyard wedding. It was all in the details. Friends and family gathered with wine in hand, under white parasols next to a clear pool filled with floating rose petals.
After the ceremony the couple along with their intimate wedding party shared in a family style Italian pasta bar from Pure Joy catering while those closest to them toasted to their love story with and custom bride and groom cocktails.
As the night went on candles were lit and the air was filled with the sounds of music as the dancing began.
The wedding is just the start of the story, as wedding photographer we are in the business of capture stories and this wedding is a beautiful start to quite the epic love story.
