Rustic, Southern Charm in the Heart of Santa Barbara

A wedding filled with southern style and charm. This bride walked down the aisle that approached an arbor filled with Spanish moss, studded with gardenias, allowing guests to catch the soft scent of gardenia and tuberose as the warm summer breeze gently blew during the ceremony at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum. The bride wore a Lazaro gown, carrying a naturally-styled white bouquet with stems wrapped in wide satin and rough silks in neutral shades beautifully crafted by Camiella Floral Design. Her stunning hair and makeup, done by Unveiled, completed her look. The groom wore a classic tux by Vera Wang with a simple, yet elegant boutonniere on his lapel.

The escort cards for the reception were individual magnolia leaves with each guest’s name and table number in white calligraphy by Janice Blair. The guest tables were comprised of long wood feasting tables, a mixed chair collection, etched glasses, and lush floral arrangements. Bowls of fresh berries served as appetizers for the guests before a catered dinner was served by Pure Joy Catering. A perfectly, understated 2-tier round wedding cake made by Your Cake Baker continued the rustic, elegant charm seen throughout the entire event.

This southern charmer was planned and coordinated by Magnolia Event Design, and these beautiful images were captured by Pat Moyer Wedding Photography & Films.
