Hope Ranch Wedding

This is a real Santa Barbara love story. Alexy and Ed were married on a warm Summer afternoon in Ed’s parent’s backyard in Hope Ranch, California. Alexy wanted a wedding that felt garden chic and effortless.


We invited guests to this chic garden wedding via a custom designed invitation by Oak and Orchid. The invitation featured thick textured watercolor paper with calligraphy and a garden wreath motif. Each invitation was stamped with a collection of vintage stamps by Little Postage House.

Guests were greeted at the ceremony with champagne and custom cookies by Poppins and Post and white linen bags that read, “Toss Me” filled with rose petals.


After a touching ceremony, which was capped off with a surprise airplane flyover with a banner, which read “Richards with Love” the couple’s hashtag, the guests were taken to the La Cumbre Country Club for cocktail hour followed by dinner and dancing into the night.
