Santa Barbara Ranch Wedding

Liz and Matt’s Santa Barbara ranch wedding is refreshingly simple, yet incredibly elegant. Their wedding was held on a private estate with a picturesque backdrop surrounded by family and friends. Guests were driven up to the venue in a big yellow school bus and treated to a family style dinner, specialty cocktails and a night of dancing.

Liz felt as though someone had plucked them up from California and dropped them somewhere in the middle of Italy.
 Sounds pretty magical to us. You can see more beautiful photos of this Santa Barbara Ranch Wedding in the full gallery. Beautifully captured by Tyler & Katie Branch.

Before we dive into the actual wedding, we want to touch on Liz’s natural wedding look. Hair down and relaxed with a simple luminous glow. The whole look works perfectly with her Rivini gown. If  you were on the fence about keeping your wedding look toned down, Liz is a perfect example of how stunning going natural can be.

In fact, we love the styling of the entire wedding party. The bridesmaid dresses in black and gray  are such a lovely combination and the ring bearer looks incredibly dapper in his vest and bow tie.

Liz went the extra mile on all her do-it-yourself projects. How impressive are all the signs? We love that all the signs are slightly different but, still have a cohesive feeling to them.  It was so clever how she used an old cabinet door and wrote their drink menu on it. Totally doable and makes it easier for guest to know exactly what is being served at the event.

    Hazel – the lettering on the signs were all traced first in pencil, to ensure I painted neatly and kept within the lines! I found a font we loved, printed and cut out the lettering, then traced them all. A bit time consuming but worth the crisp end product! Good luck!
