Wedding Inspiration: An Elegant Floral Garden

A garden of natural delights captivated one and all at this Montecito, California wedding.

When So Happi Together's Nancy Park and Paean Wang arrived at a home that had been offered as a wedding site by a family friend of the couple, they knew it would be perfect. "Our bride loves green, so all that natural greenery was a bonus!"

The team went for "a timeless, fine-art garden elegance" — perfectly suited by the place settings and beribboned menus.

The bouquets, centerpieces and floral decor throughout were composed of ranunculus, sweet pea, peonies, lilac, hellebores, garden roses and more.

The ceremony took place in a grassy area of the property beneath a towering oak tree. The team built a flower-filled custom wooden deck that served as both aisle and stage.
