If we had to choose one word to describe the vibe of Rachel and William’s wedding day, it would be “joy”.  There was laughter from start to finish as friends and family gathered at the historic Santa Barbara property Rancho Dos Pueblos Orchid Farm Greenhouse to celebrate.   And what goes better with bringing people together to celebrate on a farm than delicious cuisine featuring some of our most popular farm-fresh & seasonal Italian dishes, topped off with decadent dessert options like Chocolate Bliss wedding cake as well as a mini-dessert buffet, including Tiramisu?

We loved every elegant touch of this wedding (check out the gorgeous natural light by day in the greenhouse and how it segued to pure magic by night with the specialty lighting by Bella Vista Designs in the photos below) and wish Rachel and William every happiness in their new joy-filled life together!
