Santa Barbara, California
Nick Carter married Lauren Kitt at Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara on April 12, 2014.
The rustic-elegant wedding took place on a sprawling lawn overlooking the ocean. Decor included candles housed in antique lanterns and ivory flowers and succulents wrapped in burlap.
The wedding party included Backstreet Boys Howie Dorough, Bryan Littrell and AJ McLean. McLean’s daughter, Ava, was the flower girl.
The bride wore a $10,000 Inbal Dror strapless mermaid-style wedding dress with lace detail and tulle train. Her bouquet was made up of anemones, white roses, herbs, hydrangeas, orchids, and moss by Petals LA.
The groom wore a black tuxedo by Anthony Franco.
The couple said their vows under a floral archway made up of birch branches, white hydrangeas, roses, and violet orchids. They recited personal vows and exchanged wedding bands by XIV Karats.
A reception followed in the courtyard where centerpieces included Spanish moss, ivory garden roses, tulips, hyacinths, violet orchids, and succulents.
Later in the evening, DJ Bobby French spun tunes as guests hit the dance floor inside an adjacent ballroom.
For dessert, a five-tiered wedding cake, by Special Cakes by Ruben, was served. The cake had cascading purple orchids to match the centerpieces.
A Moroccan-inspired after party, inspired by the couple’s honeymoon location, kept guests celebrating until 2am.
Carter and Kitt got engaged in February 2013 when he proposed with a seven-carat engagement ring.
