Santa Barbara Wedding from XOXO Bride + Miki and Sonja Photography

The decadence of this wedding has me grinning from ear to ear on this rainy Wednesday. From the bride’s gown with intricate detailing to the lush greenery surrounding this very handsome couple, XOXO Bride did a beyond fabulous job putting this day into reality. And the stunning work from Miki & Sonja Photography seals the deal for my love of the west coast. That’s it, I am packing my bags and heading over to the gallery to get some palm trees in my life-stat!

From Sonia Hopkins… Lauren, an interior design enthusiast, chose navy blue, silver, ivories and crystal for the color pallet to this elegant wedding. The design worked so well with the understated elements of the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore. The church, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, was the perfect location for their ceremony. The decadence of the church with its rich history and textural feeling provided warmth while they said their vows. She chose navy linens and napkins with crystal cut wine glasses and silver urns and vases to accent. The guest seating cards rested on old world vintage trays passed down throughout their family. Camille of Modern Day Designs expertly sculpted the blooms and used tall glass candelabras dripping in crystals. The soft candle light glistened off the crystals from the vases to the wine glasses providing the beautiful soft glow to the room. The day was beautifully captured by Miki and Sonja Photography.
