This intimate Four Seasons Santa Barbara vow renewal was a romantic summer celebration deep-rooted in family and love. This vow renewal was not just about celebrating Shannon + Jon’s love for one another, it was about celebrating the strength of their family and friendships.
Cream colored flower petals led to a stunning bridal arch designed by Nancy Kaye of Mark’s Garden, which was made of lush greenery with blush, cream and lavender roses. The butterflies, which are a common theme throughout this day, represent the two month old son Shannon + Jon painfully lost in 2008. The intimate ceremony took place overlooking Butterfly Beach, while the bride of 21 years looked gorgeous in a flowing white gown that featured butterfly appliques on the bodice of the dress paying homage to her son.
Following the ceremony, the guests enjoyed a romantic candlelit dinner under a draped wooden pergola, with crystal chandeliers and an abundance of floral and greens hanging above their heads. For the dining table, we introduced low cream-colored florals with touches of lavender and many candles to add ambience and romance. As the sun set over the Pacific Ocean, guests enjoyed a decadent dinner from the Four Seasons on gold-rimmed china, silver flatware and crystal glassware while a musical trio played the couples favorite songs in the background.
With just two months to plan, we are incredibly pleased with this fantastic celebration we were able to create for Shannon + Jon. Thank you to all of our hard-working and amazing vendors for helping to bring this day to life. Special thank you to Joe Buissnik for capturing the details, special moments and the relaxed atmosphere of the day.
