Santa Barbara Wedding Rosewood Miramar Montecito – Susan + Randy

Santa Barbara Wedding Rosewood Miramar Montecito – Susan + Randy

My gracious, beautiful (inside and out), nothing short of incredible bride and groom got married at the EPIC Rosewood Miramar Montecito resort this past July.  I still remember Susan calling me to inquire about my wedding planning services over a year ago, we hit it off right away – she was living in Austin, Texas looking to plan an amazing, intimate Santa Barbara wedding. A girl after my own heart – a modern bride – with impeccable taste and a fellow Texan!!

First order of business was to select her Santa Barbara wedding venue. After a weekend in Santa Barbara – I visited several beautiful wedding venues in Santa Barbara and sent Susan detailed videos of all the locations. Once I laid eyes on the Rosewood Miramar – it was no contest! Susan booked the 8,000 square foot Great Lawn with infinite ocean views for the wedding reception and the East Lawn for the wedding ceremony. She didn’t even see it in person. Rosewood is a Santa Barbara wedding venue – a luxury beachfront estate situated on an exclusive stretch of  Miramar Beach. Fast forward a year or so and we planned and designed a pretty incredible destination Santa Barbara wedding ceremony and reception for 29 special guests flying in from all over to celebrate the gracious couple.

So many special moments throughout out the day with this fun crew. One of my favorites was the beautiful art piece Susan had custom made for Randy and presented to him during their first look (pic below).  Susan’s niece, was the flower girl and held up her duties beautifully – even with her broken wrist. The gold cast was everything!  Randy’s two handsome sons and beautiful nieces kept us smiling all day.   The couple wanted to make sure their guests felt special from the moment they were on the property; from  welcome baskets upon arrival to late night wedding cake delivery to each room after the reception!  I’m already working on Part II post because there were just too many great pics to choose from and I want to include more images of the Rosewood property in the next one.   The day was beautifully captured by Brogen Jessup Photography.   More credits below.
