kristen and shawn - university club, santa barbara



kristen's bouquet was made up of rust mini cala lilies, eggplant mini cala lilies, orange parrot tulips, black beauty roses and leonidas roses...for a personal touch, kristen asked that we tuck a clipping of ivy from her grandmother's ivy plant into her bouquet...

a rust mini cala lily accented by a sprig of fresh rosemary created a classic, yet rustic boutonniere...

the orange bouquets really popped off the navy bridesmaids dresses!



bridesmaids bouquets were made up of rust mini cala lilies, orange garden roses, camel roses and orange parrot tulips, then finished in a navy satin cuff...



even though the weather was overcast that day and the ground was wet, the girls came prepared...and color coordinated!


the reception was held at the historic university club of santa barbara...


kristen's color palette of navy, muted orange, rust and deep merlot was dramatic and rich...perfect for a winter, wine country nuptial!



the cake base was created out of over a hundred corks that the bride had collected...


...and the centerpieces were arranged in wine crates from the brides as well! each box was packed full of black magic roses, black bacarra roses, burgundy dahlias, orange parrot tulips, orange garden roses, milva roses, leonidas roses and rust mini cala lilies...burgundy hanging amaranthus, scented geranium leaves, fresh rosemary and baby artichokes added a romantic yet "earthy" quality...

Such a gorgeous color combo- I love navy and orange! And those shoes- I don't think I've ever seen more gorgeous shoes in my life.

I thought that wedding looked familiar! My brother-in-law and sister-in-law were there! Nice job.
