Intimate Backyard Wedding by Michelle Warren Photography

Kristen and Anthony are the kind of couple that you just want to be friends with.  She is the epitome of grace and beauty and he is charming and hilarious, together they make an irresistible pair.  Having met and fell in love a world away in Anthony’s home country of Australia helped set the tone for their adventure filled love story.  They found everything they were looking for in a venue at the Ravenscroft Estate in Montecito, CA.  While they loved that the estate made them feel like they had escaped to Italy, the best part was that their families could stay with them on site and spend the week together.

Their love for travel and their friends and family were the main inspirations for the wedding and were woven into every element of their day.  Everything from the Tuscan feel of the estate and the homemade Italian family style meal to the napkins with their favorite destinations and the map icon that was used throughout the paper goods was a nod to their passion for travel.  The wedding was a true global celebration as they had 60 guests who flew from overseas to take part in the festivities.  Having their friends and family from all over the world share this gorgeous night of food, love and a packed dance floor was their dream come true.
