Harmony – the word that best describes the relationship between this styled wedding shoot and its stunning backdrop. Tim Halberg Photography made use of all the beauty contained in the vast 87 acres of the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club in California. The venue’s over a decade old history gave a nostalgic touch the English garden themed session. Our creative genius chose three scenes to illustrate the old world grandeur of the equestrian lifestyle: the clubhouse interior, the iconic grandstands, and the open fields. To bring the tableau to life, props were provided by The Tent Merchant and Riley’s Flowers arranged gorgeous bouquets. Calligrapher Laura Hooper penned the invitations and table cards. Finally, models and real-life couple Billi and Jean perfectly embodied the romantic aesthetic (not to mention how gorgeous Jean looked with her makeup done by Brianna Stewart and dress designed by La Soie Bridal). To complete the “English” affair, sunset-toned colors complimented the emerald green palette of the lush springtime fields, softly bringing every detail of the photo shoot together. Sit back and let these gorgeous photos take you to the luxurious, vintage world of equestrians!
