If you loved Sharon and Adam’s wedding, then you’ll love today’s feature – another stunning celebration at San Ysidro Ranch, this one from my dear friend Elizabeth Messina. It’s also being featured in the latest issue of Magnolia Rouge, so be sure to check that out as well!
The bride wore a lace dress by Rivini that she found just a month before the wedding: “The dress was perfect – the problem?” she says. “The wedding was in one month and there was not enough time to order a dress! The stars were aligned for me that day – the sample was in perfect condition and only needed minor alterations.”
Mindy Rice designed all of the romantic floral decor. Says Tiffany, “I knew I wanted a soft and romantic ambience for the wedding and ceremony. Mindy Rice truly helped to make that vision come true through her floral and event design.”
This bride is a girl after my own heart – her favorite details from the day? “The cake! When I close my eyes, I can still taste the fresh berries and lemon! To be honest, my husband and I couldn’t wait the full year to eat the top layer of the cake. I think we ended up only waiting one day!”
You can see so much more from Tiffany and Peter’s gorgeous garden wedding in the gallery.
Beautiful Bacara Shoot By Elizabeth Messina & Rani Hoover Inspired Weddings Featured on Style Me Pretty!
Elizabeth Messina. Honestly, the intro could end there. It’s all you really need to hear to know that this feature is going to be be-yond. That the images are going to be breathtaking works of art worthy of the most prestigious of art galleries. Am I gushing? Perhaps, but she’s worthy of every word. And this shoot at the gorgeous Bacara Resort & Spa would be worthy of paragraph after paragraph of such gushing. With Elizabeth Messina behind the lens and a team of talents including TEAM Hair & Makeup, Rani Hoover Inspired Weddings & Events, Bella Vista Designs and Kristajon Floral Design – this level of style is to be expected I suppose, but it doesn’t make it any less magical. See so much more here.
From Elizabeth Messina Photography… Santa Barbara is truly one of the most beautiful destination locations in the world, and Bacara Resort & Spa encapsulates everything that I love about Santa Barbara. Nestled along the cliffs, overlooking the ocean, the bluff is the perfect spot for a wedding. This editorial shoot was a lovely mix of casual elegance and vintage, California-inspired design, from the classic chrome airstream to the colorful florals and the gentle ocean breeze. I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world making photographs, but as they say, there is truly no place like home…
For those who do not know Bacara, the bluff has been recently re-opened. It is on top of a hill surrounding by trees, overlooking the ocean. Although it is just a stone’s throw away from the luxurious indulgences of Bacara’s comfort (fabulous food and a truly wonderful spa), it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere. It is magical.
