After days of rain, the clouds parted and the sun came out to shine down upon a beautiful couple at a beautiful junction in their lives. Julie and Chris vowed their love forever at the Rockwood Women's Center in the foothills of Santa Barbara on Saturday, April 14, 2012.
Our wonder coordinator, Inger Larsen, took the helm for this event, assuring that everything was perfect. The ceremony took place under the grand oak tree that frames the patio, draped in beautiful fabric provided by GRP.
With the arrival of the guests, the officiant Saral Burdette took her place at the head of the congregation and welcomed forth the Bride, Groom, and their respective parties to take their places. Julie walked down the aisle to "Butterfly Waltz" by the Twilights Piano Series and walked back, together with her husband, to "Where you lead" by Carol King.
After a lively cocktail hour, the Bridal Parties' made their Grand Entrance to "The Power of Love" by Huey Lewis & The News before sitting down to a lavish dinner and toasts. Julie and Chris then took their first dance with the song "Stand by Me" by Ben E. King, followed by a group Father/Daughter Mother/Son dance accompanied by the wonderous sound of Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World".
Our very own DJ Andrew Korn held down the decks through-out the evening and coaxed everyone out of their seats to dance with the happy couple. To be sure, everyone felt the love in the air.
Best of wishes to Chris and Julie in their new life together!
