Big Easy Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara Wedding

Katie and Collin’s Santa Barbara wedding is complete and total perfection. The couple was engaged in Jackson Square in New Orleans, and they brought the Big Easy to the West Coast, where they currently live. Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara is a lush oasis, and the couple worked with Central Coast Memory Makers to bring their vision of traditional elegance to life. Precious and Blooming Floral brought a touch of the South to the arrangements, adding magnolia leaves to the florals. The beautiful greenery brings out the beauty of the surroundings. Their oceanside ceremony was absolutely beautiful and they danced the night away to Louis Armstrong. Every single image from Rebekah Westover Photography is utterly stunning!

From the bride:

“Our wedding was originally planned to take place in our hometown, Salt Lake City, Utah. Five months before the wedding, I called my mom to tell her I thought we should move the wedding to California where Collin and I live. The next weekend my parents were on a flight out to California to look at new wedding venues. Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara was the first venue we saw. It was the only venue that still had our original wedding date available. After we left we knew it was the perfect location and we canceled the rest of our appointments. Since we only had a few months to plan, I knew I needed help.

Collin lived in New Orleans when we first started to date, and we even got engaged in Jackson Square. We knew we wanted to incorporate the city we loved so much into our wedding. It was extremely important to us to have a traditional second line after our ceremony. We ordered parasols from Old Town Praline in New Orleans, and had personalized handkerchiefs made for all of our wedding guests. I loved how intimate our wedding was; we were able to share special moments with every single one of guests. It was a bit challenging finding a traditional brass band in California, but Hilarion from the New Orleans Traditional Brass Band brought the Big Easy to Santa Barbara. The second line really set the tone for the rest of the evening. We danced the night away to Louis Armstrong with all of our loved ones.”
