Santa Barbara Wedding by Beaux Arts Photographie
December 3, 2009
United States

This might be one of the more charming weddings I've ever seen. Sent to us by the forever talented Kirsten Ellis of Beaux Arts Photographie, it's flirty and completely fun. It's one of those weddings that didn't take itself to seriously and instead was designed around the cute personalities of the bride and groom. I love that.

The oh-so-talented Donna Romani coordinated the whole affair at Elings Park.

The bride actually designed and made the newspaper programs above. She titled them Great News and stacked them up in a cute box for guests to enjoy. LOVE that idea. Here are a few more details that she incorporated...

Our centerpieces were completely DIY. I bought white milk bottles and juice cups from a store in NYC called Fishs Eddy. Then I ordered mini mailboxes and designed vinyl table numbers to go on the mailboxes. The milk bottles had a retro vinyl red "Tim and Tam" logo and one bloom from the farmer's market will tucked in each one. Twig pencils went into juice cups so guests could fill out a card printed on kraft paper to be "mailed in lieu of a guestbook." Tim and I will open them on our wedding anniversary. We had three trolleys cart some of our guests around for a little tour...a stop at the beach, a cruise down state street and time to enjoy a glass of champagne.
