{Event Details} Santa Barbara Wedding

We recently had the pleasure of creating wedding details for Tracy and Todd, a couple getting married in beautiful Santa Barbara.

The couple was having their intimate wedding reception at San Ysidro Ranch, a beautifully romantic hideaway.
We wanted the wedding details to fit the rustic, romantic setting of Santa Barbara wine country.

The wedding weekend itinerary was printed on ivory card stock and embellished with a jute cord bow.

Titles in dark gold ink gave a nice contrast to the earth tones in the jute.

Since the reception was intimate, and there would only be three tables, the couple wanted the table numbers to reflect significant dates in their relationship. Instead of having traditional table numbers, each table number here stood for a special date.

The day they met.... at the Snake Pit Ale House, (who knew you could find romance in house of snakes?) The bride lucked out in finding herself a charmer in Todd.

(the serpent makes the "5" in the "15" since the place they met had a snake in the logo; what a fun, not-too-serious way to make a nod to where you first laid eyes on each other!)

The day they got engaged....

And the day they got married :)

The table numbers and the menus were also printed on ivory card stock, then backed with a beautiful shimmery bronze card stock.

For other reception details, Jillian wrote information on cute coordinating framed chalkboards that fit the rustic feel of the venue.

For the cocktail hour, Jillian wrote the name of their specialty cocktail...the blood orange margarita (sounds delicious!)

For the guest book, guests made a thumbprint with ink and then signed their names...have you seen this idea? So cute!

So Jillian wrote directions on another chalkboard

For escort cards, the couple also had guests replace their names with a picture of themselves when they arrived.

I'm not sure exactly how the couple did it, but I've seen a similar idea here, where you take a picture with a Polaroid camera the couple has at the table. Such a creative way to capture the moment!

Jillian wrote each guest's name on a tag

There are so many beautiful ways to incorporate rustic details into a beautifully romantic event. We'll have more rustic wedding details to come in a few weeks.

And we'd love to know...are you planning (or did you have) a rustic wedding? What are your favorite ways to incorporate these details? Please share in the comments below!

And congratulations Tracy & Todd! Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day.
