Owner & Visionary, Santa Barbara Wedding Style
This couple hosted a romantic garden wedding at private estate in Santa Barbara. The couple exchanged vows under the property’s arbor that was decorated with lush floral by Hogue & Co. Dinner was setup in an open air tent with swagged white chiffon and bistro lights. Footed compotes filled with garden flowers decorated the tables, and each place setting was set with a petite floral accent. The wedding was planned and designed by Merryl Brown Events and expertly captured by Jose Villa.
The bride donned a taupe ballgown and carried a wild garden bouquet with ranunculus, Juliet roses, pieris and trailing jasmine vine.
The entrance to the property was decorated with pink roses and cafe au lait dahlias.
A vintage car was decorated with trailing ribbon, floral garlands and a “Just Married” sign.
Cafe au lait dahlias, garden roses, scabiosa, and maidenhair fern make up the centerpieces in silver footed containers.
Along with with wedding cake, mini cakes and other desserts were tray passed to guests.
To finish out the event, a traditional tiered wedding cake was decorated with delicate floral petals by The Butter End.

. . . Pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than, less than perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing you are perfect to me . . .
