Elegant Outdoor Montecito Wedding

We loved sharing Ben and Dani’s sweet engagement session yesterday, and we’re so excited for you to see their elegant and understated wedding today. Here’s a little more from the Bride about their magical evening:

Ben and I met in Santa Barbara five years ago, and both grew up close by. Four years later Ben proposed to me on a weekend getaway in beautiful Big Sur California. Inspired by the stunning untouched Big Sur coastline and all of our memories in Santa Barbara, we knew we wanted to be married outdoors in California. We wanted a location that was naturally beautiful and characteristic of both of us. Ben owns a local, organic produce company and I work in fashion, so during the planning process, design and food were our main focus. While Ben set the menu, I designed and letterpressed our invitation suite as well most of our other paper needs.

We wanted to throw a personal and beautiful dinner party in a gorgeous location for our family and dearest friends. After we walked the grounds and stood under the one hundred year-old trees at the El Mirador Estate in Montecito, we knew it was the place for us. Our ceremony was performed by a dear friend under the oaks and enhanced with a musical duo on violin and guitar. The reception was held in the garden under the trees draped with glittering chandeliers and lights. Ben provided all of the local organic produce for the dinner that was served family style on long tables. Because the seasonal dinner was a centerpiece in itself, we accented the linen-lined tables with eucalyptus leaves, garden roses, and Spanish church candles. The estate gardens were so beautiful, so we kept the decorations organic and elegant. We lucked out with a warm late September evening, and as the sun set over dinner we watched the Los Padres mountains and the hills of Montecito glow pink and purple. After dinner we danced the night away under the trees enjoying every last drop of the magical evening.

Design Your Engagement Ring with Joseph Jewelry

Obviously we love weddings and all of the beauty involved in designing weddings, but the day of your wedding will come and go in the blink of an eye. You’re going to want something special that will serve as a daily reminder of the most important day of your life, and something that symbolizes the vows you have promised to one another. Traditionally, wedding and engagement rings serve as a reminder of your wedding, and they’re something you and your family can cherish for the rest of your lives. Your engagement and wedding rings will be the symbol to the world that you’re committed fully, for the rest of your life, to another person, and we think it’s important that your rings should represent who you are as a couple, so why not design your own?

Joseph Jewelry allows for you to design your custom engagement ring to the exact specifications that you’ve always dreamt of. Work closely with the designers and artisans at Joseph Jewelry to design your ring from the bottom up or start from one of their many beautiful designs. We absolutely adore the idea of your husband designing a ring especially for you, or it can be a special activity for the two of you as you get ready to take the leap! Visit Joseph Jewelry to see how you can start working with the jewelers at Joseph Jewelry to design your custom engagement ring today!
