The Moody Elegance of a Romantic Rainy Day Wedding
We all know how exceptionally romantic rainfall can be. We watch as star crossed lovers dance, sing (and ultimately kiss) along the cobblestone streets of Paris in old movies. Couples huddle close under umbrellas. Skip over puddles. Get drenched in the rain. It’s all in good fun, of course; the sentiments of poets and seers have long believed Spring showers are luck charms. They cleanse and refresh for new beginnings. So you can imagine the drizzling enchantment of this floral and candlelight infused Carpinteria, California wedding.
This take from event designer TOAST Santa Barbara… They say it’s good luck to have rain on your wedding day, so when you live in California where there’s a never-ending drought, it must mean something extra special to get that day full of drizzle! Stephanie and Kevin wanted a day that would feel unique to them and their style as a couple and to create a warm and fun atmosphere for their guests. They decided the incredibly beautiful Villa Sevillano would be the perfect place to host their friends and family. With its lush gardens and Italian architecture, it set the tone for an elegant and intimate weekend.
Sweet, isn’t it?

Enchanting San Ysidro Ranch Wedding
There’s a reason why Ysidro Ranch, nestled in the Santa Barbara alcove of Montecito, is a wedding destination hot spot…the charming landscape enchants. World renowned for its storybook elegance, it’s top on wishlists. And time and again, Style Me Pretty selects the créme de la créme from it. Like this romantic alfresco wedding…
From the Bride… We envisioned our wedding to be modern, traditional and elegant. We chose the San Ysidro Ranch for it’s storied history, privacy, romantic, intimate and scenic location. Because only our immediate families were in attendance, we opted for a formal and elegant affair serenaded by an acoustic duo under the stars. We enjoyed a caviar and champagne cocktail hour, followed by a fine wine pairing and a five course dinner with accompaniment of amuse bouche and an intermezzo.
It was truly an affair to remember from the exchanging of our vows on the lower lawn, to the decadent sit-down dinner, chandeliers hanging from the branches above us creating a whimsical setting. The enchanting glow of the candles, lavish table settings, aromatic fragrance from the lush floral arraignments complimenting the aroma of the fine cuisine. Laughter coupled with the cheers and speeches and background music creating a magical evening to remember. We are exceedingly happy and pleased that our dreams were executed so flawlessly.
