Luxe Elegance at the Four Seasons {A Real Wedding by Michelle Warren Photography}
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

For Frank and Marbella, their stunning, coral and gold wedding was like a dream come true.  We’ll say, for us too!  We’re sooo in love with their album.  It’s easy to tell that every detail was perfectly planned and executed by Liz at Central Coast Memory Makers…from the vibrant palette to the cocktail reception overlooking the ocean.  Many thanks to the talented Michelle Warren for sharing these amazing photos with us!The day started with pampered beauty in the bridal suite by TEAM Hair & Makeup.  Marbella’s best gals helped her into the exquisite Amalia Carrara gown, which was fit for a princess.  The bridal party lit up the photos in coral colored statement dresses with pleated ruffle hemlines.It was an unforgettable ceremony at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Montecito, followed by a cocktail reception overlooking the beach on the terrace of La Pacifica Ballroom at The Four Seasons Resort in Santa Barbara.  The reception was the picture of luxury and elegance, indoors at The Four Seasons.  Camilla Svensson Burns designed the most incredible florals- the room was decked out in pale pink and gold tones.   Read the bride’s story just below and catch the full feature in our Real Weddings Gallery!  Read the rest of this entry »

Rustic & Heartfelt Outdoor Celebration
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

This week’s real wedding is just so special.  The photos emanate such a divine love… and all of the planning revolved around the connection that Tessa and John share with their loved ones.  The bride said, ‘Once we found that center it was easy to let some traditional elements go and not feel pressured by trends. This allowed us the freedom to create a totally unique and intimate event for our guests.’  The day overflowed with organic beauty and rustic sophistication, and was captured in both digital and film photographs by Michelle Warren.

There is so much more of this gorgeous earthen palette to enjoy!… See the full story {here}.

Lush Botanical Real Wedding
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Right now, this is my fave.  I’m pretty much obsessed with these photographs from Cat and Jon’s cool Santa Barbara wedding. The lush and vibrant botanicals… the metallic glass accents… the STUNNING film photography.  It’s almost overwhelming.  Cat and Jon made their day a blend of eclectic styling and neutral tones paired with florals the colors of a California sunset.   Thanks to Braedon Photography for capturing this day so brilliantly, and then, of course, for sharing it with us…!
