This Santa Barbara wedding is bright, fun, and completely captures the Southern California spirit… what more could you ask for?! Leah Valentine Photography gives us gorgeous images of the day, and from these two lovebirds surrounded by golden California sunshine and Spanish-inspired architecture to the intimate ceremony adorned with bespoke, sustainable decor, the entire soirée is downright stunning. This early fall fête ended with sparklers on the beach, and I simply could not think of anything better. Congrats, Alex & Justin; we wish you all the happiness in the world! xo
From the photographer....
Frequent visitors to the Santa Barbara's Farmers Market, Alex and Justin chose local, sustainable vegetables and flowers to fill their bouquets and centerpieces.
Continuing with unique ideas, in lue of a traditional guest book, guests left their finger prints on a hand drawn tree, creating a stunning piece of artwork for Justin and Alex's new home.
Then their sustainable flower concept flowed nicely into the reception where guests were treated to potted herbs to take home at the end of the evening. In addition, guests received goodie bags adorned with a special note from Justin and Alex:
"Growing up, Alex LOVED goodie bags. They were a necessity at every birthday party. Her mom used to joke that Alex would have goodie bags at her wedding… and here we are! Alex and Justin created these to be the kind of goodie bags their younger selves would have loved. We hope they make you smile!"
