Santa Barbara Yacht Club Wedding

"Bring on the tissues!  Meet Tess and Tony.  This bride and groom got married in the Mural Room at the beautiful Santa Barbara Courthouse and focused their energies on making the most memorable and emotional ceremony we’ve ever been a part of. Before Tess and Tony were engaged, Tony was traveling a lot and each time he traveled, they wrote love letters inside the cover of the book “Wuthering Heights”.  They waited until they were apart to read the letters.  This book would become one of the most important aspects of their ceremony because they incorporated verses from the book read by their entire bridal party.  To top it off, Tess’ grandfather officiated the ceremony. One of our most important duties on the day-of was to pass out the lyrics to the song “My Girl” to ALL the guests prior to the ceremony starting.  As Tess and Tony walked down the aisle for the recessional, the pianist and all the guests began singing the song.  It was a special surprise for Tess. Tess and Tony are some of the most caring people we’ve ever met and this shined when they pulled out a sparkly piƱata while singing happy birthday during cocktail hour to celebrate Tony’s sister’s birthday. The reception was also beautiful.  They wanted it to be simple and meaningful as well by incorporating their favorite local treats – the cake from Renaud’s Patisserie and their chocolate favors from Cholocats du Calibressan. This celebration of love was so incredibly special.  We are thrilled to have been a part of it."
