Lisa & Adam, Villa Verano



When I had my first consultation with Lisa I could tell that she was a girl that knew exactly what she wanted her wedding to look and feel like! She dreamed of a private estate with views of the ocean ranging in location from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara and wanted multiple family style tables to create that intimate feeling. We searched high and low for the perfect venue and found a winner at the Villa Verano nestled in the mountains of Santa Barbara. Lisa and her fiancé Adam had previously done a vacation together in Santa Barbara so this location had an extra special touch. Lisa had an amazing eye for design; a chuppah for their ceremony FULLY covered in baby’s breath was a definite focal point of the day! The style for reception was nothing less than gorgeous with a mid-century modern feel. From the long wooden tables to the black ceramic style chargers and the chairs all tied together. We pulled in baby’s breath in the long centerpieces as well and it truly brought everything together perfectly! Congratulations again to the happy couple and please enjoy these amazing photos captured by the talented Alicia Mink!
