Santa Barbara Boho, Backyard Wedding

Santa Barbara Airbnb Backyard Wedding

This Santa Barbara backyard wedding at the cutest Airbnb was so stunning!! When the day starts with the best man forgetting the rings in the Uber and then sprinting after it so fast that he rips his pants while the groom is dying laughing, you know it’s going to be a fun wedding!

Nicole met Casey in the cutest way through her friend who works with him! She said they were playing on a work softball team and needed more girls, so her friend called her and she played!! In her first email to me, Nicole told me, “We quickly had a connection but I had recently been out of a 3 year relationship and didn’t want to rush into anything but I couldn’t resist that little cutie and here we are a little over a year later! He proposed to me at sunset on a beach in Maui and it was perfect. My family was there and it was at the end of such a fun vacation. People might say we moved fast, but it’s so true when they say “when you know, you know”!”

And these two definitely knew!! Their love for each other is so apparent!! After getting ready in their cute Airbnb, they had the sweetest first look ever!! They swapped their personal vows just between the two of them!! Such a meaningful moment before their gorgeous wedding ceremony!!

I’m so obsessed with the mountains mixed with the tropical landscaping at their Santa Barbara Airbnb!! How cute is their ceremony set-up? The ceremony arbor was so gorgeous with draped fabric and boho florals! Casey smiling as Nicole walked down the aisle melts my heart!!

After their backyard wedding ceremony, they headed to their gorgeous reception!! They set up the cutest lounge area with fairy lights, armchairs, and the coolest couch!! Such laid-back boho wedding vibes!! We snuck away for some glam bride & groom portraits surrounded by tropical plants!! We ran around the hills, found a field of yellow wildflowers, and had so much fun for these two lovers’ portraits!! I’m also obsessed with Nicole’s boho bridal style!! Her embroidered gown had the most amazing details!!

And their reception space was somehow even cuter at night?? After sunset portraits, the bride & groom headed back to their laid-back reception to hear amazing toasts and dance the night away!!
