Abbey & Erik: A Rustic Wedding on the Santa Barbara Coast at Bacara Resort

From: Spring Summer 2015 edition

Abbey and Erik were married at the stunning Bacara Resort on the Santa Barbara coast. Guests were welcomed to the ceremony on the sprawling ocean bluff lawn with a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. As they made their way to their seats refreshment trays were passed around with ice tea and lemonade garnished with a sprig of fresh mint. At the end of the isle, as the grand altar piece, stood a massive peppertree with rose-colored berries and accented with clusters of lanterns at its base. A beautiful, lush blanket of fuchsia bougainvillea blooms covered the aisle to the altar giving the ceremony a beautiful pop of color, drawing everyones attention in to the center of the celebreation.

The couple’s reception was held in the Bacara’s Rotunda Room adorned with long wooden tables, each with exquisite tablescapes of botanicals, bell jars, white florals, moss accents, and small lanterns. Each seating was specially personalized with lemon leaves inscribed with the guest’s name and a custom designed menu card. Finishing off the room’s striking design was the dramatic wrought-iron chandelier draped with garland glowing over the dance floor.
