Pacific Coast Stunner

Nicole and Ryan were married on a bluff in Santa Barbara overlooking the pacific ocean.  The wedding ceremony featured Nicole's bridesmaids in cream After Six and Katie May dresses with their bouquets by Rockrose Floral adding a pop of color.  The bride wore a stunning illusion back Pronovias gown and had her hair and makeup done by the fabulous TEAM Hair and Makeup

Following the seaside ceremony at the Ritz Carlton Bacara Santa Barbara, guests listened to Ybarra Music play Spanish guitar while they sipped cocktails and enjoyed appetizers.  

The couple snuck off to the beach for a few private photos before joining the party.  

Guests entered an a fresco reception space filled with long wooden tables and garlands studded with summery blooms.  They dined under the stars on a 3 course dinner before kicking up their heels on the dance floor.  The wedding was relaxed and unstuffy, but filled with elegant and bright pops of color that played well against the Spanish structure of the Ritz Carlton Bacara Santa Barbara.
