Santa Barbara Style: Bohemian Chic
Bohemian Chic Inspiration
To say that this is simply an inspiration shoot isn’t completely true. The lovely bride Kelly, is actually Photographer, Melissa Musgrove’s niece posing in her real wedding dress just prior to her Santa Barbara wedding last month. We love this sweet, family affair photo shoot and all of the beautiful boho-chic details.

The style of the shoot was bohemian chic. Incorporating a combination of antiques and vintage family
heirlooms borrowed to blend the couple’s bohemian style with their love of elegant and charming touches.
The decor was enhanced by fresh floral elements of white daisies, inspired by Kelly’s dress, yellow tulips, white peonies, garden roses,
green berries, chamomile and gerberas. The arrangements set in small silver, rustic, galvanized and aged pewter vessels, were displayed on antique white linens.
Escort card/favor bags of burlap with dried floral elements filled with lemon drops and fresh chamomile peeking out of the top, where pinned to a
regal California Oak tree.
Bride and Groom chair signs were created from pieces of wood, assorted beads and buttons.
Other fun details were the “she loves me, she loves me not” children’s pail filled with daisies, garnished menu cards,
and chandeliers hanging from the majestic oaks.
The shoot took place at the Waters Jr. estate in Montecito, California built in 1932, set among majestic oaks, a meandering creek and organic vegetable garden.
