Laura & Ronnie: Midsummer Magic at Chez de Les Fontaines
Romantic and elegant, the terraced garden of the Chez de Les Fontaines private estate in Montecito perfectly captured the elegant garden wedding Laurie and Ronnie envisioned. After the couple sealed the deal with a kiss, a grand fountain began to bubble as guests toasted to the newlyweds.
Flowers in deep hues of pinks, reds and purples, beautifully complemented by light oranges, yellows and greens, created the loveliest color palette for the special day. Gold and white accents lent a clean and airy feel, while abundant greens added texture and contrast to the relaxed and unique affair.
Held in a stunning clear tent, Laura and Ronnie’s reception featured a variety of seating areas throughout the space, including a mix of stylish couches, poufs, tables and even an indoor draped gazebo. Various linens in shades of champagne, blush and deep merlot velvet enhanced the floral design. As the sun went down, the stars twinkled above the venue as light danced around the tent, creating warm and a romantic atmosphere.
Staying true to their vision of a floating-style reception, the couple opted for a sampling of food stations, including “The Cabo Hurricane” and “Football Game Day,” among others, named for happenings on their path to the altar.
In a stunning glass atrium dessert lovers found an array sweet treats. A dramatic seven-tiered cake trimmed in gold embellishments sat atop a bed of colorful flowers, accompanied by cookies, tarts, macarons and a custom doughnut wall.
