Come take a jaunt to the beach with us today! Kerri and Josh’s Santa Barbara real wedding, photographed by BB Photography, is the perfect escape for a winter day – sun, sand, delicate decor and an incredibly happy couple. It’s our Friday gift to you!
The Goals: Kerri and Josh wanted to share their love of Santa Barbara, California with their family and friends so they chose the beautiful Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore for their wedding venue. In the outdoor ceremony they combined their Christian and Jewish faiths, and felt that they were starting a new tradition at this favorite location that would last a lifetime.
The Design: Kerri and Josh chose a wedding color palette of white and cream with accents of lavender and natural greens. With the help of wedding planner Soigne Productions their decor had an easy, romantic and organic feel to it to compliment the natural beauty of the resort’s beach location. I absolutely love their chuppah made from driftwood and the lush white florals from Mindy Rice!
The Look: Kerri wore a gown by Monique Lhuillier and accessories from Garland Collects, and looked like perfection! Her bridesmaids wore deep ocean blue dresses from Two Birds Bridesmaid with earrings by Linked Lust. For the tradition of Old, New Borrowed and Blue, Kerri wore vintage earrings (old), her beautiful wedding gown (new), her grandmother’s handkerchief (borrowed) and cute bridal Hanky Panky undies (blue).
The Moments: Kerri’s favorite moments of the day were walking down the aisle to see Josh waiting there for her, and saying their vows underneath the driftwood chuppah as hummingbirds fluttered around them. Wow! One of the biggest hits of the wedding was how much everyone loved the live music. “Our band was amazing and is still getting talked about – the dance floor was full the whole time and our ceremony and cocktail music was just as amazing! We hit a home run with the Supernova Quartet and Impulse!”
