A Boho-Chic Wedding in Santa Barbara

December 16, 2015 | By | Comments (4)

We’re swooning over these pictures by Rad + In Love photography of a dreamy boho-chic DIY beach wedding in Santa Barbara. Bride Lisa and groom Ryan gathered 80 of their closest friends and family members for a fun-filled day-turned-into-night celebration of their marriage. Instead of having guests book nearby hotel rooms, they rented the entire upper campground at Refugio State Beach so everyone could spend the night right there on the water in Airstream trailers and tents.

The day of the wedding, the Airstream trailers served as perfect spots to get ready.

The ceremony itself took place right in front of the beautiful water views, requiring little decoration beyond handmade dreamcatchers swaying in the breeze.

Guests could walk right over to the reception afterward to gather around picnic tables for food and cocktails. Music, games, and good times followed!
