Britt wanted her wedding to be classic and elegant with a vintage feel and that relaxed Santa Barbara mood. In order to help fulfill her vision, she enlisted family and friends, and of course, one of our favorite coordinators, Merryl Brown Events. With their help, she was able to achieve this lovely peach Santa Barbara wedding, captured with beauty and grace by Jessica Lewis Photography.

From the bride, Britt:
“I designed the books on the table, but they were put together by Maggie Hammer in IL, who is a friend of my mom. The guests’ escort cards each had a place on them in lieu of a table number. If their card said ‘San Remy’ then the book at their table was ‘San Remy’. Each book had a write up of a different place Roni and I had been together. I also wanted to have pictures of the different places in the books. Each book also contained questions for the guests to fill out, for example, ‘What is one book that Britt should read and one that Roni should read?’ I wanted my wedding to be very personal. I also wanted to have lasting memories; so many people had told me that your wedding night flies by and it was very hard to remember. I wanted to have peoples thoughts and memories from my wedding forever. I chose fabric over ribbon to tie the books together with because fabric frays. I wanted the books to have a vintage feel and frayed fabric helped to do that. The fabric was tied in big bows to give it a girly feel.
“One of my bridesmaids is an artist and drew out birds that were printed onto mugs that I used for wedding favors. She also drew the peony that was used on the escort cards. I wanted my wedding to be as personal as possible, so I did all that I could myself and what I couldn’t do (like drawing) I had my close friends and family do. More than anything I really wanted my wedding to be memorable and fun.”
