It was a warm sunny day in April when Lisa and Christophe were married at the historic Riviera Mansion located just minutes from downtown Santa Barbara. The couple chose to have their French-American ceremony outdoors on the lush green lawn in the private garden surrounded by gorgeous palm trees. Their backdrop was simply stunning with cascading crystal elements and beautiful flowers hanging from the sprawling tree. The wedding party in subtle gray and blush tones stood out amongst the richness of the Mansion's natural beauty.
The dining room was overflowing with centerpieces on every table along with show stopping flower arrangements hanging from the chandeliers which was done by the amazing Debbie Alvarez of Floral Phenomenon. After dinner guests indulged in an an assortment of desserts which included a 3 tiered cake from Your Cake Baker, sweet fruit-filled crepes made by the Chef at the Riviera Mansion and scrumptious French Coqembouche delicately crafted by Carrera Pastries. The bride's mother hand-made the gorgeous flower wall backdrop that was used for the photo booth which provided the guests endless hours of fun courtesy of Andrew Fels Productions while music from Bouquet Sound filled the room and got everyone on the dance floor! And to end the night, a sparkly sparkler send-off was the picture perfect finish to their amazing day!
