Katie and Luke had a breath­tak­ing view for their wed­ding day. Located at the Orella Ranch in beau­ti­ful Santa Bar­bara, this classy cou­ple took advan­tage of the amaz­ing nature around them. Mixed with oak tree’s, large fields, and DIY projects; this loca­tion was a per­fect match for this cou­ple. Daniele of Laven­der and Twine pho­tog­ra­phy was there to won­der­fully cap­ture the sim­ple beauty of this sunny wed­ding day.

Girl Meets Boy…

Luke and I went to mid­dle and high school together, but didn’t start dat­ing till after we both came home from col­lege. We’ve dated for 5 years. On Christ­mas Eve, Luke asked me to marry him. He gave me a big, wrapped present that opened to reveal another wrapped gift inside. I opened box after box until I even­tu­ally got to the last one, which was a small Tiffany’s bag. Inside I found a gold heart locket. To my sur­prise when I opened the locket it read “Marry Me.” I looked to Luke and he was down on one knee with the ring.

Wed­ding Plan­ning Inspiration…

We envi­sioned a chic coun­try wed­ding with rus­tic and vin­tage touches. Inspi­ra­tions for the day were the mag­nif­i­cent oak trees at Orella Ranch and the expres­sion ‘Lucky in Love’ that inspired the use of horse­shoes through­out the wed­ding. It was impor­tant to us to have a casual and relaxed atmos­phere; from our attire to the BBQ food to the Adiron­dack chairs and horse­shoe games at the appe­tizer hour.

Details…

It was a com­pletely DIY wed­ding; we sewed all the nap­kins from vin­tage table­cloths, hand painted and made all the signs and table num­bers from old boards of wood, hand stitched and cut the burlap ban­ners. Most of the dec­o­ra­tive items at the wed­ding were from my future mother in-law’s house or found at garage sales.

All of the flo­ral arrange­ments were done by fam­ily and friends. A friend of the fam­ily went down to the Los Ange­les Flower Dis­trict to pur­chase all the flow­ers. I wanted the flow­ers to look nat­ural and sim­ple; keep­ing them all white with green foliage. All the bou­quets were made to resem­ble freshly picked flow­ers from a gar­den. They were nat­u­rally wrapped in burlap and pinned.
