Palm Springs dreamy bohemian wedding // Ian & JoAnna

“Ian & JoAnna’s wedding was so special to Sun & Sparrow. JoAnna is a friend of ours and when it came time to tie the knot, JoAnna contacted us to help bring her vision to life. JoAnna had dreams of a boho, dreamy wedding. When it came time to pick a venue, Ian & JoAnna really wanted the feeling of a destination wedding that was still close enough to home for friends and family to come. Psalm Springs was the prefect destination. Ian & JoAnna fell in love with the industrial flair, with floral accents of a Palm Springs fairytale. Along with an amazing vendor team, Ian & JoAnna’s vision came to life.”

From the Bride

Early in our planning, we decided that we wanted to have a SaddleRock Ranch wedding at the vineyard. The morning of the wedding started bright and early, and from the beginning the day was full of excitement and joy. We had planned our wedding for nearly two years! When our wedding day finally came, everything felt so unreal, like a magical fairytale was unfolding. It was an amazing feeling knowing that our family and friends, many of whom had traveled far, had all come together to support us for our next chapter in life.

 

Remembering Special Moments

We decided to have our “first look” along a long corridor at our AirBnb. During our moment, both of us felt much anticipation. Walking down the long corridor to reach my husband to be was surreal!!! When I finally saw him for the “first time”, I was overwhelmed with emotion. I’m not someone who usually cries, but I definitely let out tears of joy in that moment.

One of my favorite moments of our day was exchanging our vows. I remember it vividly. Chris and I decided to each write our own personalized vows. Being at the altar is a very intimate place to be and we wanted our vows to reflect that. Even being in front of family and friends, in that moment, it still felt like we were the only ones there.

Our wedding day was an absolutely magical fairytale. Every moment was stunning. We loved SaddleRock Ranch wedding at the vineyard because it was entirely outdoors. The ceremony and reception sat on top of a hill overlooking surrounding rolling vineyard hills. Everything collectively perfectly fit the romantic, whimsical feel we were going for. Much of our decor revolved around a blush-to-cabernet ombre color scheme, including the bridesmaids dresses, table settings, flowers centerpieces. We added small elements of gold and marble to add a modern touch. Despite the day flying by, we were able to enjoy every moment of it and wouldn’t change a thing.

~ Love, Alice


From the Photographers

When Chris and Alice first spoke with us about their wedding day, I knew their wedding would be dreamy. We absolutely loved their chic whimsical style that reflected their personality through the entire day. When they mentioned they wanted a SaddleRock Ranch wedding at the vineyard my heart leapt! Before their day, I had not photographed at this particular venue. I knew that this day would be full of wonder and beauty.

Through our planning process, Alice and I discussed colors, styling, florals as well as her favorite locations at SaddleRock. We made a plan to travel throughout the entire ranch to capture some of her dream shots. I’m so glad that we planned to have extra time for photos, all throughout the day. We were able to photograph in the valleys, at the top of the mountains, at the door that leads to nowhere, and so many more locations. In my opinion, being able to help both Chris & Alice achieve their wedding day vision made our jobs a success. When we can champion a client’s heart into their photos, I believe that we have done our jobs well.

~ Love, Tiffani

David & Frangelica // Garden fairytale wedding at the Belmond el Encanto in Santa Barbara

FROM THE BRIDE // From the moment you step onto the Belmond El Encanto in Santa Barbara, you can feel its magic. The stunning ocean views to the bungalows set among the lush green grounds set the tone for a fairy tale setting. As we walked under the wisteria covered arbor surrounding the lily pond, our 12 year old pug dove in for a swim with the turtles. We knew right then and there that this was going to be the place where we would get married.

“The Secret Garden”, Fran’s favorite childhood book, provided the inspiration for our wedding theme.  Some details we loved included the antique key name tags placed upon moss covered tables, the roses that dangled from every chandelier, and the table numbers made from selected novels from Fran’s antique book collection.

Our favorite moment of the day occurred before the ceremony while we were alone and blissfully unaware that we were 30 minutes late to our own wedding.  We had found a baby grand piano situated within the quiet hallway beside the ballroom.  This is where we spent time sipping champagne and talking while Fran played the piano.  That moment was special as it gave us an opportunity to pause, appreciate the moment, and take everything in, advice that we would give to every bride and groom.

Our wedding was dream come true and we felt the love all around us.  It was the perfect day to mark the beginning of  our life together. Our secret garden wedding is perfectly summarized in the quote by Alfred Tennyson, which we displayed at the entrance of the lily pond. “If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever.”

The wedding day flew by so quickly. I can honestly say that it was one of the happiest days of my life. I keep thinking back and wishing that I could relive it. 
 
Before the wedding, everyone told me that I should try to enjoy every minute of it and to not worry about the small stuff on the big day. However, after planning for this big event for so long, I couldn’t help but want to make sure every detail was going according to plan. Hindsight being 20/20, I should have listened to what everyone told me. So for all the future brides reading this, really try to enjoy your wedding day. Don’t let the small things get to you. 
 
It’s so hard to pinpoint my favorite moment. There are so many! I loved being with just my bridesmaids in the morning; it was fun to have girls time. I loved having my dog and my sister’s dog in the wedding. I loved how the decor of the wedding came together, even though I’m not very design savvy. I loved seeing my grandparent’s and parent’s happy faces that day, knowing that they’ve been waiting for this moment for some time.   
 
We just feel so grateful and lucky that Dennie and I were able to celebrate such an important day with all our families and friends that love us so much.

Santa Barbara Estate fairytale wedding photographer // Jeff & Kayla

1. Describe your how you felt on your wedding morning, all the anticipation and the love. What were you most looking forward to in the beginning of your day. 

(Kayla) I didn’t sleep all night! I am not sure if it was nerves or excitement that this day has finally come, after a year of planning. Jeff and I went on a walk that morning around the ranch that morning. Our last one before becoming Mr. and Mrs! We visited the horses and goats and were able to see the beginning stages of our magical day being put together. I felt so much more relaxed at at ease afterward. After that we parted ways and the girls started getting ready. I was most looking forward to walking down the isle with my dad and looking to Jeff.

2. Did you have a ‘first look’ or a ‘walk down the aisle’ moment? How did you feel when you saw your significant other for the first time? 

(Jeff) We had a first look. I felt like I was the luckiest guy on Earth, and at the same time, felt like we were the only people in the world. I was so mesmerized by her beauty, I had no words. She literally took my breath away.

3. What was your favorite moment/story from your wedding day? 

(Jeff) My favorite part of the wedding was our ceremony. It was so personal and so full of love and happiness. There were few tears and a lot of laughs.  And of course your vows. “This is it.”

(Kayla) My favorite moment was our first dance. I have never felt more in love than at I did at the very moment. We had a friend give us a few lessons prior to it, but in that moment, I forgot that there were other people around us. It left like it was just him and I dancing alone.

4. How did your day most feel like a fairytale?

(Both of us)  It was all the love around us! Pure happiness filled the air. A feeling that is indescribable. There is nothing better than having all your friends and family in one place just to celebrate love! From the castle like settling, to the beautiful flowers, our vows, the candlelight dinner, watching the kids have the time of their lives on the dance floor, and of course the endless kissing! Every single moment was so magical
