A romantic english setting swept in elegance


Take memorable a crossing to Santa Barbara’s countryside where blossoming fruit trees and shrubbery mirrored Eden accompanied by the sounds of hoofs that cantor pathways leading up to the Norman Barn & Dovecote the venue is known for. You can also discover lush landscapes perfumed with the fragrant scent of lavender escorted by the most luxurious sunsets in the region. The 100-acre property named Kestrel Park invites you into a secret garden honoring the English 19th Century era making it nearly impossible not to believe in honorable storytelling.

The Old World venue harmonized beautifully from the vision of Maher Haroun, which could not have paired more elegantly to an English Countryside dream. Among the brimming wall of Hornbeam hedges intimately rested an inviting table scape fit for a regal gathering paired with trickling tapers, a lavish partition of florals, to delicate paper created by Isidore & Augistine welcoming guests with timeless elegance. The most delectable looking white cake from Intri Cakes, topped with even more lavish blooms beckoned my affinity with florals, in soft shades of peach and ivory.

The bride wore a stunning embellished gown by Netta BenShabu, just perfect for the splendor of the venue’s charm. The details found in the silhouette paired with a hint of shimmer to complete this contemporary look, with a romantic updo and classic makeup beautifully styled by Cheek To Cheek Artistry. While the groom looked incredibly debonair in a dove gray suit anchored with a cognac colored shoe for the finishing touch.

No matter what season of year you find yourself visiting Kestrel Park, you can most assuredly fall in love in the heavenly lavender garden, the Sycamore Allée to the open field setting, which all provide the most charming backdrops. The environment conveys such a timeless romance with historical descriptions guaranteed to leave you feeling inspired…
