Garden Inspired Wedding by the Sea

This New England couple  got engaged on Valentine's Day, and a chose the same day for a year later to exchange vows at the Bacara Resort & Spa. The bride donned an elegant fitted trumpet dress by Hayley Paige and carried a blush bouquet with pops of burgundy scabiosa and anemones by Hogue & Co. Ceremony decor was kept loose and wild, with a lush ceremony arbor made out of organic greenery. After ceremony, the couple took photos along the bluffs at Bacara. Dinner was held in the Rotunda, with elegant long tables decorated with garlands and round tables with footed blush centerpieces. NRG Music played live music and kept the guests dancing all night. 

From the bride: "The first time we visited Santa Barbara we went to the Bacara to play tennis and then out to dinner. It was the most perfect Spring day and I was so taken back by how majestic the entire landscape was, especially the bluff. As a native New Englander, I had never seen the Pacific Coast and I remember sitting at dinner outside watching the surfers and feeling the cool breeze and thinking this was paradise. We always said, the Bacara is an adult Disney Land and it was our dream to host a wedding and allow friends and family to feel and experience the magic of being at such a beautiful place that holds so many great memories Eric and I share in Santa Barbara."

And a special thanks to Melissa Musgrove for sharing the photos from this wedding!
