Citrus Wedding Inspiration by Megan Sorel

Held at the elegant Santa Barbara Four Seasons this couple chose to incorporate citrus and herbs as part of their wedding design. Mindy Rice executed the concept flawlessly with citrus trees at ceremony, citrus on the branch in the centerpieces, and in the personal flowers.

The bride chose a fitted trumpet gown by Vera Wang and her 'maids sported floral crowns and nude dresses. Lush bridesmaids' bouquets included garden roses, dusty miller, and petite cumquats. Dinner was held in the El Mar room with long tables setup for guests seating. Florentine Chargers from Casa de Perrin and fringed napkins added texture to each place setting. But, our favorite steal worthy idea? The couple's getaway car with its hand-painted "Just Married" sign accented with bay leaves and citrus on the branch.

All, was expertly planned and produced by Alexandra Kolendrianos and captured by photographer, Megan Sorel.
