Watching the sunrise on a rooftop in Santa Barbara. Breakfast at Breakfast Culture Club, the hottest new joint in town. A party at a supercool loft space with your closest friends and family by your side and you have a recipe for one of the best days ever.
From the milk and cookie station, to the heavenly blooms scattered about, everything little thing about Sara and Anthony's celebration has us head over heels. Day of coordinators Jennifer and Natasha from Swoon California wowed with their attention to detail. After the bride and groom said their vows looking out over the Santa Barbara Harbor at Santa Barbara City College the whole party jumped on Santa Barbara Trolley Company 's trolley and made their way to The Narrative. They boogied the night away to beats from DJ Darla Bea, sipped on hand-crafted delights from The Good Lion and no Santa Barbara party is complete without.
On a sunny August day Ricky and Kimberly brought even more of their own sunshine to this celebration. From the plethora of sunflowers to their constantly smiling faces, the atmosphere of the loft was happy and bright. This darling couple called each other sweeties for thirteen years before tying the knot. To acknowledge this special number there were thirteen tables, and table cards were of movies they have seen every year together since they've been a couple. Too cute!
Sending this lovely couple all the happiness in the world! Witnessing their love was truly special, and seeing them so enamored with each other after nine years together was beautiful. If you have a weakness for all things Japanese, this celebration might make your heart skip a beat. Sweet touches like anime place cards, origami cranes and toasts were made with sake of course!
This occasion perfectly highlighted the love of two high school sweethearts. Their love burns bright as ever, growing stronger each and every day. Tyler and Jessica's celebration was a true family affair. A big shoutout to the groom's mother Jaimie, for organizing the entire night and making the loft dreamy with her decorations. The space was full of darling details like personalized mason jars for each person, loads of framed photos, pretty signage and little potted plants. In an ode to their family's roots, the celebration had rustic touches and plenty of Southern charm.
The bride and groom pulled together to create the center-pieces and a photo booth. But here is the pinnacle of a DIY wedding, Doreen made her own dress. Yes, you heard that right. That gorgeous dress you see was stitched by the bride herself. As if the months leading up to a wedding isn't stressful enough, props girl!
