It’s not every couple who will hire a tattoo artist to send guests off with favors that will last a little longer than say, homemade candles! That’s how you know Ezra + Rachel were serious about fun. Color, texture, art, and vibrant florals led the way for their California wedding full of happy details! Onyx + Redwood provided the design + planning expertise, bringing E + R’s vision to life:
We tried to incorporate a lot of personal details that reflected our interests. We both love tattoos so we had a tattoo artist there giving tattoos to guests! We also had my mom’s art incorporated into the invitations and menus. Our signature cocktails were named after our dogs and we had an artist draw their portraits for the drink menu. We didn’t want it to feel like a traditional wedding and our wedding planner absolutely nailed the funky feel we were going for.
Lerina Winter captured the day’s colorful moments—let’s see!
The day’s design relied on tropical foliage and raw, cut open fruit for a bold + edgy effect.
How pretty is Rachel’s ring?! This set is by La More Design.
The bold florals were the handiwork of Ella and Louie Floral Studio. Such a pretty bunch!
Wedding Party Style
Rachel tried on nearly 20 dresses before she found her Rue De Seine match!
Lovely ladies in floral prints!
The Jungalow-Style Garden Ceremony
Loving the tropical plants leading up to the alter!
Just the cutest!!
The welcome table had a tattoo sign-in sheet that said: “Get a little drunk and make a permanent life decision!” Ha! Why not?
When we got our matching tattoos!
Reception with all the Colors (and Tiki Drinks!)
Tassel escort cards! So cute!
Isn’t the Santa Barbara Historical Museum such a great space for a colorful, tiki-inspired reception?
The emerald velvet tablecloths, mustard runners + denim linens from La Tavola Fine Linen worked so well with the wooden tables.
The wedding invitation suite and event signage all incorporated Rachel’s mother’s artwork and calligraphy by Lazy Creative Designs!
So cute with the kiwi and coconuts!
The yummy offerings included a Mediterranean food station, a comfort food station, and…
Donuts! The “Sugar High” dessert display was a fun spread of delicious Voodoo Doughnuts!
Don't get caught up trying to please everybody. Focus on the fact that you get to marry the love of your life and the wedding is just a fun bonus :)
And don’t forget the drinks! Cheers to Ezra + Rachel…wishing you more + more happy moments to come!
