April and Rob attended the same high school near Santa Barbara with different backgrounds and different paths in mind. April becoming an attorney and Rob an educator as well as an advocate. With a little help from social media, they were both able to get in touch. Through friendship and time down the line it became clear that it was destiny.

What better place to celebrate an unbreakable bond than at a historic landmark? The Santa Barbara Historical Museum was the perfect venue to plan a rustic, yet chic, Santa Barbara Wedding. April &  Rob's love was celebrated amidst splashing fountains, exotic gardens, and Santa Barbara's signature Spanish-style architecture.

As a Santa Barbara wedding planner, our goal was to compliment the rustic ambiance with modern elements to elevate the event to an inspiring luxe wedding. Laurel Events LA's wedding planners chose a pink and coral wedding color pallet, and incorporated silver & gold mercury vases, champagne sequins, and plenty of chevron for a youthful yet mature feel.

The ceremony took place under a gorgeous wedding huppah; the pavilion was adorned with a hanging chandelier and tied back with rose bouquet. The epitome of a romantic, outdoor rustic wedding that so perfectly matches Southern California.

As the event continued into the evening, Laurel Events LA's wedding planners lit the Santa Barbara Historical Museum courtyard with string lighting and beautiful lanterns. A photo booth allowed guests to save the moment, and a lounge area allowed family and friends to sit back and take in the beauty of the warm Santa Barbara night with lots of candles to set the mood. The evening ended with Rob surprising the stunning bride with a performance by R&B singer Mateo.
