Kelly, creator of Santa Barbara Chic and floral and event design guru, is here sharing a stunning bride and her bridal inspiration. Thanks, Kelly!
I love, love this pensive picture of my sweet bride Elizabeth in her gorgeous Claire Pettibone gown, looking at the sea from Rancho Dos Pueblos.
The intricate beading, empire waist, and the delicate cap sleeves made Elizabeth feel like she’d just stepped out of the pages of Pride & Prejudice…
For a splash of color, and her something blue, Elizabeth picked these blue shoes by Poetic License. Her bracelet was her something borrowed and her earrings were her something new (vintage baubles from 33 Jewels). To see the rest of Elizabeth’s wedding check out the Style Me Pretty magazine!
