Santa Barbara Wedding Couture~Vintage Chic

We were given the Library in the University Club to use to design our look. Here is what the room looked like.Here is the final product...we created a warm soft romantic room.

Geoff from Ambient did a fabulous job matching our colors with the beautiful fabric draping, lighting and our name in lights!

Melissa Musgrove Photography captured the details for us! We love you Melissa!!!

This beautifully created cake with a gorgeous stenciled design was designed by Christine Dahl. We cut and served the cake later in the day for everyone to enjoy. The cake was a delicious chocolate cake with to die for chocolate mousse filling.

Dominque from Images in Ice did the 3 ice scultptured vases that were stunning and perfect for our space.

La Fond Pampered Palate served italian spritzers for all to enjoy!

Cody Floral Design did it again! Laura worked so closely with us throughout the process and I love what she created. Spring, soft tones, Oh so romantic!

Tracy from Lazaro Press~I just cannot say enough about. She and I have so much fun working together. She really out did herself again. The invitation style just branded our look so well.

Our rentals were from Town and Country Rentals, and a new Vintage Rental Company in Los Angeles called Found. The chairs, trunk and tables were the perfect touch needed to complete our look. La Tavola provided the gorgeous linens for us!

Giving Back~Hospice Santa Barbara

We are asked often if the flowers from our events can be donated somewhere? Seems a shame after the four hour reception to waste them since the flowers still look stunning. We wanted to give back to an organization that is very dear to us. I lost both of my parents to cancer. One pancreatic and the other was lung cancer. My Dad was just retiring from teaching at La Colina Jr. high, when he received the news of pancreatic cancer. Four months later we said goodbye to him. Hospice was there to walk that journey with us. They were so helpful in educating us and allowing us to understand the process of letting go. I am so happy to share that we are now offering to our clients an opportunity to bring alittle joy to those that are in counseling through Hospice. We will brighten the office space, counseling offices and have the flowers delivered to some of the homes where the patients and their families could use something to lift their spirits. Thank you to all the volunteers that give of their time in Hospice Care. You are a fantastic organization!
