Jessica and Shane’s creative and vibrant Santa Barbara wedding at Carousel House has our eyes dazzling! We’re going bananas over this couple’s rad style. Give us all the mustard suits and long-sleeve backless dresses, please!
When planning their dream wedding day, Jessica and Shane’s vision was to create a mid-century inspired vibe with a splash of California tiki—and they totally pulled it off. Get prepared to swoon over tear-filled vows in a historic garden, an ice cream stop during couple’s portraits, magical reception decor details, and one of the most lively parties we’ve ever seen! As for wedding decor, the couple chose white for cleanliness and simplicity, wood for texture, palms as a nod to their passion of tiki culture, and gold as an accent. As a last minute decisions, they added some deep reds to the bouquets and boutonnières to balance Shane’s mustard suit (a gorgeous bright suit with a neutral tie!), but really, they weren’t tied to a particular palette. The couple hand-wrote personal thank you cards to each guest that doubled as seating assignments.
Jess really wanted her wedding outfit to reflect her personal style, think clean lines accented with statement accessories. She chose a stunning minimalist A-line wedding dress with an open back and long sleeves and totally nailed it with stunning pearl earrings. At the final hour, she decided she wanted a pop of color and found some green Prada heels second hand on The RealReal. The bridesmaids were wearing mismatching black, green and hunter green dresses. Take a look at this stylish wedding and steal some ideas!
