We here at TEAM believe that enhancing a bride’s unique natural beauty allows for her most luminous self to emanate. It’s really our stylists’ sole purpose when working with brides and, too, runway and fashion models alike. We all glow when we are confidently who we are. Case in point, this lovely bride (above) and her colorfully designed wedding with an environmentally conscious theme. Here’s what their event designer Alegria by Design has to share about this charming fete, as featured on Style Me Pretty…
For Julie and Peter’s Santa Ysidro Ranch Wedding, it had to be romantic, casual yet refined, with the vibe of their free spirits woven throughout every decision and detail. As an ecologically minded couple, it was decided that as little paper as possible was to be used. Hand-lettered monstera leaves for menus and lemon leaves for escort cards were created by Santa Barbara designer, Sophia Uretz of Sophia Loves Letters.
For their wedding ceremony in the round, floral designer Michael Mantalos of LouLoudi Design Studio created a distressed birch canopy with natural grapevine woven throughout as a focal piece. The canopy was then laden with herbs, garden roses, and abundant field flowers spilling and climbing throughout. Lavender plants and distressed clay pots with flowering annuals finished off the magical garden design. An ombre petal carpet in blues and purples covered the ceremony floor.
After enjoying cocktails in the ranch’s citrus and herb garden, guests were welcomed to an intimate dinner in the hydrangea cottage and inner courtyard. Feasting tables of bright blue mandala linens and fragrant garden roses greeted guests, while hypnotic sounds of Brazilian jazz filled the night air.
Dreams do come true!
