sarah and greg - doubletree, santa barbara

sarah and greg were SUCH a blast to work with. they are so hilarious together and you cannot help but love them! they chose the beautiful doubletree resort in santa barbara as their setting and the weather could not have been more gorgeous!! carrie and ryan phillips, as always, did an amazing job capturing the details!



the groom owns his own landscaping business so the couple wanted to reflect a bit of that into their wedding day. with a color scheme of black, white and green, we utilized feminine white florals including hydrangea, reflexed roses, tulips and ranuculas, peppered with masculine green "plant-like" florals including horse tail, ti leaves, anthirium, scabiosa pods and succulents.

the ring bearer "pillow" was made up of horsetail reeds, green moss and fuzzy succulents...

the boutonnieres consisted of organic looking scabiose pods and succulents...



vases of black rocks, black manzanita branches and green cymbidium orchids lined the aisle...


we wrapped each chuppah base in white suede and filled them with fresh lemon leaf, hanging amaranthus, white hydrangea, white reflexed roses and green bells of Ireland...smylax garlands were carefully woven around each pole and the chuppah covering was hand made by a relative of the bride's as a keepsake for their special day...








each of the tall centerpiece vases were completely wrapped in horse tail reeds...every piece was glued on by hand!




for the cake, we hand glued horse tail around the entire base and filled in the rest with black rocks and green moss. the cake layers were accented with small clusters of green rustic hydrangea, succulents and scabiose pods...
