Intimate Santa Barbara Wedding at El Encanto

Candice and Richard celebrated their wedding at Belmond El Encanto surrounded by their closest family members and friends. Perched high in the Santa Barbara hills, El Encanto offers the most serene atmosphere, lovely gardens and incredible views of the city of Santa Barbara and the ocean. The couple married in an intimate ceremony in the courtyard of the private Oak Tree Suite surrounded by trees and lush gardens. Following the ceremony, they gathered to celebrate on the Channel Islands Terrace which has the most amazing views overlooking Santa Barbara. Santa Barbara Elopement and Ella and Louie Flowers transformed the ceremony and reception spaces with beautiful florals, the loveliest tabletop, and many other pretty details. We loved exploring the gardens and capturing many sweet portraits of the newly married couple. With blue skies, warm air, an ocean breeze, and soft light, it was such a gorgeous day for a wedding.
