When I first met Eric and Lindsey, they were living in New York–Lindsey working as a teacher and Eric completing Medical School. Lindsey grew up in Southern California, so it was perfect that they chose the Santa Barbara Historical Museum as their wedding venue.
At White Fig, we love working with out of state couples, helping them bring the beauty of their special day to life. Whether it's quick meetings when they're in town, FaceTime calls, or just sending Pins back and forth--what matters to us is the intimate connection that we make with our couples, and distance does not change the process of creating their magical day.
The Santa Barbara Historical Museum is the perfect venue to create an intimate and romantic wedding celebration. Eric and Lindsey's vision for their wedding was elegant yet natural, so this venue could not have been a better choice for them.
Creating Lindsey's vision was achieved by using garden roses, eucalyptus and scabiosa, and then adding astilbe to give the bouquets a more airy feel. We love the concept of making the girl's flowers all different but telling the same story, so that they look organic and natural, giving them a slightly different feel and not making them uniformed.
The ribbon we used for the bouquets is from Silk & Willow, made of all organic material and plant dyed, creating an elegant feel that tied the natural beauty of each bouquet together.
Little pretty pieces are some of our favorite elements of weddings. We love the idea of Lindsey adding the hair piece for her reception! And of course,
it's always a special touch to cut a flower from the bride's bouquet to create the groom's boutonniere.
It warms our hearts to see all of the emotion of the day come alive after so many hours spent with Lindsey preparing for it.
This arch was an important piece for Lindsey as it was used in the ceremony space and then repurposed to the king's table.
The most precious moments are captured by the innocent. Special memories are caught of the moments when nobody's looking (except for this wonderful photographer -- Josh Elliot!).
The little details are always important. They're the perfect touch to soften a hard area such as a bar or water station and make it come alive. Home Grown Event Co. did such a great job of marrying Lindsey's vision with our florals to create an elegant, organic setting.
CHEERS to this celebration of life and bringing two families together! How lovely it is for Lindsey and Eric to have the support and love of two wonderful families throughout their lifetime.
White Fig considers it an honor to have been invited to share in this special time in their life.
Cheers to love!
