Bright Purple Wedding at the Riviera Mansion

From Phillip Van Nostrand:

When asked to share their favorite wedding moments, Beth said, "I enjoyed having my bridesmaid take a card to my fiance and bring it back when he wrote a message in reply--something for us to share even when we weren't together. The anticipation of knowing that my husband was waiting for me behind the hedge during the wedding processional was so exciting! Looking out on the reception, seeing everyone who was there, excited to celebrate with us, made me feel so loved. My mom secretly learned how to play ukulele and played the song "Lava" along with a slideshow my parents created; this was actually what made me cry for the first time the whole day! Taking pictures with my new husband felt so romantic and special. I will cherish them forever."

What a sweet wedding we have today held at the Riviera Mansion. These two newlyweds opted for a purple color palette which was found in the bridesmaids dresses, the gorgeous florals done by the talented Ella & Louie and the Crushcakes wedding cake. It was a perfect sunny Santa Barbara day for the outdoor ceremony. Then the guests moved on to the reception where they enjoyed great food, dessert and dancing to music played by Gavin Roy Presents. All was beautifully planned by Once in a Lifetime Wedding & Event Planning
