“Magic is always pushing and drawing and making things out of nothing. Everything is made out of magic, leaves and trees, flowers ….and people….So it must be all around us.” -The Secret Garden
And so it was that an orchid farm greenhouse was magically transformed for the wedding celebration of Michelle and Sam and all their family and friends while the moon cast her benediction on the nuptials and night. From vibrant colors (including orchids, of course), leaves, trees, flowers (and even the beach) to special, personal touches and elegant decor, everything about this Santa Barbara wedding was perfection.
