Romantic French-Garden Inspired Private Estate Wedding in Santa Ynez

"Hanna and Cody had a romantic french-garden-inspired wedding featuring soft blush tones, bright seasonal blooms, organic herbs/greenery, and french-inspired props and antiques.  They hosted their wedding at the a private estate in Santa Ynez, California - the heart of Santa Barbara wine country.  

Hanna and Cody wanted a garden wedding, drawing on the french inspiration of the estate.  Hanna and her mom worked hard to create several unique DIY elements, including programs, place-cards, signage, table numbers, and several decorative elements.  They created hand-made beeswax candles for each guest as favors.  

Guests arrived for a pre-ceremony cocktail hour with light summer beverages, classical music, and lawn games.  The ceremony took place on one of the horse pastures overlooking the horse fields. Tyler Speier and his team created an ombre arch with seasonal blooms.  After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers on the veranda overlooking the estate.  Dinner, by Omni Catering, was served in the barn (with beautiful vintage fans, Edison bulb lighting, and a corrugated metal ceiling).  Each table centerpiece was unique - all create with french ceramic pitchers, bright seasonal blooms, and organic herbs + greenery.  Hanna and her friends created an incredible DIY cookie bar for dessert. Hanna and Cody left in a 1930's Studebaker with a romantic sparkler exit."
