From the bride… On weekends we enjoy exploring California and checking off activities and places from our bucket list. When it came time to choose a venue for our wedding the oceanfront of Santa Barbara seemed like the perfect fit.

Modern. Classic. Magical. Gilded in gold. Call it what you will (because all of this is true). But have you seen how darling this couple is? The sweetest love birds with expressively free-flowing happiness…wouldn’t you agree? Another beautifully captured wedding, photographed by Jose Villa, featured on Style Me Pretty. And with San Francisco as the backdrop to their James Leary Flood Mansion venue, well ok then… Modern, Classic, Magical, and Gilded it is.
And naturally, we’re loving this shout-out from the stunning bride,

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?

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.

It’s Friday, folks! And our very own Mar is heading up today’s Instagram Takeover on Style Me Pretty. She’ll be offering tips and tricks for hair and makeup styling, based on her feature in SMP’s 2017 Bridal Beauty Looks to Inspire (soooo good). Here’s a sneak peek into her tips for smoky eyes + crazy, fun hair…
Consider natural tones when applying “smokey” eyeshadow colors to your eyes. We like less smoke and more lashes – we LOVE fun and flirty false eyelashes! This is the key to this soft, yet dramatic, look. THM Hair Extensions were added in for the tousled “down do”. We waved the hair with a one-inch iron, wrapping wide pieces around the barrel and then allowed the hair to cool before literally tossing her hair up and down! Pin the sides up and you have some sexy waves, which will stay out of your face throughout your wedding. Or use the volume and texture to create an amazing braided updo for later (dancing time?!).

Nothing says fun loving quite like a good old fashioned elopement. And Santa Barbara, California -a top destination hot spot for all things weddings and secret rendezvousing – is the perfect place to do an elopement right. Take this inspiration photoshoot, where we teamed up with photographer Lacie Hansen and Bluebird Productions to bring you this visual delight, as featured on Style Me Pretty…
From Bluebird Productions…Inspired by the colors of the American Riviera and the desire to have a perfectly intimate elopement that could then be shared, a fabulous group of vendors crafted the ideal elopement. The elopement consists of experiences at the Santa Barbara courthouse followed by a tour around town, dinner and cake in a romantic courtyard and a sunset toast on the beach…Bright and cheerful flowers decorate the intentionally set table to compliment colors of the areas surroundings and add a bit of “pop” to punctuate the celebration.

In a most spectacular sharing of two cultures merging in wedded union, this bride and groom do it right. Seamlessly blending Mexican and Arabic traditions with culinary delights, special dances, music and-of course- style; love couldn’t help but nestle in.
Photographer Luna de Mare offers this lovely perspective, “Located along the Central Coast of California, Sunstone Villa & Winery in Santa Ynez is the perfect backdrop for the wedding of your dreams. The peachy hues of French limestone, and lush grape vines in the vineyard offer a beautiful landscape as a setting for an al fresco experience. Melva & Ali chose to incorporate both their cultures into a blended affair, featuring Mariachis and Arabic Dancers. Their Ceremony took place at the Villa’s two giant Oak trees, with cascading Florals and Olive leaves in front of their closest friends and family, with a nod to both cultures.”
See how this heart-filled celebration, featured on Style Me Pretty, delights the senses.
