The inspiration behind their Santa Ynez Wedding

They picked Santa Ynez for their Santa Ynez Wedding because they wanted to feel like they were in Europe. Look at those old-world vibes of the building; vines on the wall, and hand-placed bricks. We love the ambiance of Europe, and the brickwork that is so famous there. This truly transported us.

The Color Palette

Add in that beautiful creamy outdoor lighting and views of the hills, we were practically there. Our color palette consisted of robin egg-inspired blues and corals that were dreamy and relaxing. It complemented the exterior so good and we were so excited for the aesthetic. And of course, we can’t talk about this without talking about her dress. Who said you had to wear white for your wedding? No one! We adore her lavender-colored layered dress which suited her perfectly.

Santa Ynez Wedding Floral Inspiration

The couple wanted to bring the greenery inside too. So our super talented florist did exactly that. We had a blue and coral design outside, but inside it was an overemphasis on the greenery. Of course, we love greenery and it created such an intriguing scene for us to photograph. We love how the bride wore exactly what she wanted. Her layered chiffon pink dress, which played up the springtime aesthetic made it so romantic.

Final thoughts on this Santa Ynez Wedding Session

We love it when couples have the exact session of their dreams. No, you don’t have to wear white. Yes you can go over the top with florals and have incredible views. It can be as large, or in this case, intimate as you want.
