Padmini & Andrew’s Santa Barbara Courthouse and Winery Wedding

One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: We had fun and then we ate. Which was fun.








The Info—Photographer: Hannah Arista / Location: Santa Ynez, California / Venue: Sunstone Winery / Padmini’s Dress: “My dress was made by my mum’s trusted tailor in Mumbai, India. The embroidery was done separately by one of the most talented embroiders I know.” / Padmini’s Shoes: Custom dyeable from My Glass Slipper

Other cool stuff we should know about: I had injured my ankle about a week and a half before the wedding so for the ceremony, I ibuprofen-ed up and wore heels (they were so beautiful, I couldn’t resist). Towards the reception, the pain from my ankle was wearing me out so I switched to my supportive boot and flat. I totally felt like a robot bride. Andrew and I both love to eat good Italian food paired with good wine, therefore, the crux of our wedding was really the food and wine. The ceremony was a meaningful legal ceremony performed by Andrew’s aunt and it took place in the beautiful Mural Room of the Santa Barbara Courthouse. And then we meandered through the hills and valleys to our reception where there was a lot of good food, provided by Grappolo (an Italian restaurant in Santa Ynez). The drool-worthy scrumptiousness of the tiramisu totally made our wedding day the best day ever!

Favorite thing about the wedding: We planned the whole thing ourselves with very minimal help and it all worked out. Literally, nothing went wrong. It was amazing.
