Jennifer Osborne and her now husband, Bill Haley chose the breath-taking Bacara Resort as the backdrop for their destination wedding. She was born and raised in Santa Barbara and is now a high-powered executive in Atlanta. They met and fell in love and wanted to seal the deal, officially. But a big, fluffy wedding was not their style and they both have great careers and families to focus on – not a bunch of fluff and frills. They relied upon the professionalism of their vendors for advice and guidance while they still stuck to what was important to them. Bacara Resort requires an event planner for all events and will allow a month-of planner in special cases – which is where I came in.
The Bacara provided just about everything that the couple needed to complete their rustic, beach-inspired wedding. Shannon of Effloresce created a stunning ceremony scape but brought the beach to the resort with enormous periwinkle blue hydrangeas and white porcelain seashells on the guest tables. Jon with JHS Productions provided all of the music for the day – a bagpiper for the ceremony (VERY cool), a guitarist for the cocktail hour (perfect!) and he spun the music for the rest of the evening himself bringing an amazing energy and freshness to the dance floor. Margie of Iced Tea Photography is a childhood friend of Jennifer’s and one of the easiest photographers I’ve ever worked with! Thanks for the beautiful shots, Margie – see below.
Jennifer & Bill couldn’t have chosen a more perfect group of vendors to work hard to make their day so amazing! I cannot wait to work with these vendors again. It was a blast! Thanks, Jennifer & Bill for letting me be a part of your special day – it will not soon forget how much fun it was for everyone!
