San Ysidro Ranch Wedding by Jose Villa Photography

The first time I laid eyes on this field of lavender was when we featured this beloved SMP wedding that Jose Villa and Lisa Vorce did. Aside from the fact that the wedding was CRAZY gorgeous and the bride + groom were basically supermodels, it was those jaw droppingly gorgeous backdrops that made a permanent mark on my wedding obsessed brain. And here it is again. This time adorned with an equally lovely bride and groom, a wedding day design by Events of Love and Splendor that will send your wedding hearts a flutter and photography by the now famous for being so freaking awesome Jose Villa. Who I tend to gush about a little too much on SMP and I'm quite sure must be frightened of me by now. Anyhoo. This next one is pure wedding bliss. Click here to see the entire gallery of images!

From Events of Love and Splendor...Ingrid and Howard's wedding can be summed up best in one word: lovely.  Their desire for an intimate celebration that was romantic, vintage and inspired by nature came to life at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California.  They embraced a soft and ladylike palette of sherbet colors (including peach, blush and pale yellows) accented by a dusty aqua.   Their heartfelt ceremony on the garden lawn was followed by a cocktail reception featuring raspberry mojitos and peach bellinis.  Inside San Ysidro Ranch's Colman Cottage, they gathered with just over 40 guests for a cozy dinner party.  The sounds of classical Spanish guitar played in the background as guests dined and laughed together.  As the night wound down, guests were treated to a dessert buffet and a gourmet popcorn station featuring fanciful toppings -- everything from chili powder to dried seaweed flakes.  The atmosphere facilitated warm conversations that lingered into the mild summer evening, as guests lingered on the starlit patio.
