I had the pleasure of working with Shannon and Ross who reached out to me earlier this year asking for help planning a private ceremony. The couple, who reside near San Diego have ties to Santa Barbara and decided on the historic Santa Barbara Old Mission Rose Garden. Surrounded by their parents and in the middle of the blooming roses, the couple exchanged their vows while the notable landmark provided the perfect backdrop for their special day.
After their intimate ceremony, the couple enjoyed a mid-day brunch amongst friends and family at the Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel. The brunch was held outdoors in the Palmera Gardens and was the perfect setting for their casual and elegant reception.
The bride, originally from Hawaii, loved the tropical feel of the tall Palm Trees and lush landscape, and chose to add to the already breathtaking scenery with gorgeous floral arrangements created by Knot Just Flowers.
Guests sipped on champagne and enjoyed a scrumptious brunch buffet with lovely Hawaiian style guitar and ukulele music playing in the background provided by Gavin Roy Presents.
