This Off the Radar Venue is a Total Hidden Gem

Ever heard of Lotusland? Yeah, me either. Tucked in the hills of Montecito, it unfolds like a secret garden (animal topiaries and all) and when paired with a stunning ethereal wedding like that photographed by Kurt Boomer, the beauty is off the charts. From romantic florals by Plenty of Petals to a magic open air reception coordinated by Hoste Events, get lost in this celebration with even more right here.

Kate and Aaron’s wedding was one of my favorites this year. Lotusland is one of those off the radar venues but its beauty is astounding. Set in the hills of Montecito, it gives off a feel all of its own. The whole day seemed to have a beautiful etherial feel. The bride Kate was an artist and created all of the paper goods as well as backdrops for photographing them. She had amazing style and was a joy to work with. Kasia from Plenty of Petals brought her artistic touch to the florals and the day was completed with a cruise around Santa Barbara on a catamaran.
