With a name like “Whispering Rose,” you know it has to be enchanting. The Whispering Rose Ranch in Santa Barbara County, California, is a whimsical wedding location known for its elegant equestrian amenities and beautifully kept property. Several bridal looks help to portray different visions for one incredible venue.
Naturally, a horse-drawn carriage is a must. A bride and groom hop into a regal black carriage to share a kiss and a carriage ride.
She wears a ball gown made with a feather skirt and open back, and he accompanies her in a dark gray suit.
Another look includes a jaw-dropping gown with a deep illusion V-neck and elaborate beading from top to bottom. The pale and soft appearance of the bouquet helps to balance the fashion-forward style of the dress and not to mention, complement the ranch’s namesake.
The tablescape is classic with clear vintage glassware, blue and white china, and a pretty rose centerpiece.
Elegant desserts like pastel and flower macaroons are just a preview to the cake.
Four tiers, each different, feature hand painted flowers, gold leaf, and a plethora of pearl details for one delicate dessert.
A final look includes a lace strapless gown with a fitted bodice and mermaid skirt. The tulle skirt is voluminous and with the open back, makes quite a statement.
The old stonework, the quiet drive, and the abundance of trees make this location one to remember. We can’t keep quiet about this styled shoot at Whispering Rose Ranch.
