FIVE Weddings with gold Details

In celebration of The Academy Awards, we are inspired to showcase a Santa Barbara Wedding Style Blog roundup of 5 of our favorite gold details in the weddings we have published. Below are our top pics of the golden opportunities to perfectly pair gold into the design of the celebration.

A Dramatic Red Wedding at Belmond El Encanto

The outdoor wedding reception housed long and round tables around the lily pond. The gold chivari chairs compliment the gold candlesticks and gold table numbers, especially with the rose gold table linens on the round tables. After dinner, guests moved to the ballroom for dancing and dessert of a tiered square cake decorated with gold foil and Juliet roses, which was placed on a gold sequin La Tavola Linen.

A Garden Wedding of Cream by Kiel Rucker Photography

This private estate wedding was simplistic in that the couple chose shades of off white and cream as its main color. When guests arrived to the reception site, they were greeted by gold using a large mirror with elegant calligraphy for a unique seating chart. Each place setting was elegantly set with gold rimmed china and silverware to match the candle votives. Finally, candlesticks were placed on the lace covered wooden sweetheart table.
