In June, I traveled to Santa Barbara to photograph Alyssa and Austin’s wedding. The next day, I had this gorgeous Whispering Rose Ranch wedding editorial on the books and it was everything I hoped it would be. Lush floral arrangements and a summery color palette to die for comprised this stunning private estate editorial that just might be my favorite to date.
What’s not to love about this colorful invitation suite and these jaw-dropping Louboutin pumps? I mean, I can’t resist a good blue or pink in wedding details. Color gives so much life to wedding details and I adore how beautifully it graces the textured paper of this stationery.
To give the bride and groom a little hug of flowers, Emily created a gorgeous semi-circle floral arrangement with wild greenery and various shades of pink blooms. It was a beautiful arrangement that infused a pretty pop of color into the scene while perfectly balancing with the mountain views.
Covered in an exquisite coral pink linen, the reception table was adorned with chinoiserie dinnerware, elegant and classic glassware, and plush Oak Louie chairs. Dozens of colorful flowers sat atop the table that complemented the delightful tones of the pink and blue tablescape.
Of course, a classic cake decked with flowers and surrounded by cocktails was placed in front of the iconic doors of the property. I always talk about what makes a great cake backdrop and this certainly does the job beautifully.
Whispering Rose Ranch Wedding Portraits
With dozens of breathtaking portrait locations for a Whispering Rose Ranch wedding, I couldn’t help but utilize several during this editorial. The large double doors surrounded by ivy must have been my favorite, though the textures of the walls and windows that surrounded our reception table have to be a close second. Although I don’t normally gravitate toward rustic textures, I was totally in love with the design of Whispering Rose Ranch. From the greenery to the architecture, everything so perfectly captured the elevated yet relaxed California wedding style that makes me swoon.
