A Glamorous Santa Barbara Wedding (That Will Make You Cry!)

Lovelies, I have watched this Santa Barbara wedding film five or six times now, and I have cried every single time. The piano track is Italian romance at its best, and the flower girl’s adorable voiceover reading our groom Charley’s love note to bride Adena – I can’t stop the waterworks!

My sappy Monday morning mess aside, we can’t forget to mention how utterly glamorous this SoCal wedding is! A sparkling, quarter sleeve gown by Maggie Sottero, classic and elegant chignon, and drop earrings make Adena’s bridal look so flawless.

We’ve included the quick wedding vignette by Robert Michael Films toward the beginning of the post, but if you can’t get enough (like me, weeping!) we’ve also posted the full wedding film at the bottom of the post. Grab your hankies, this one’s a guaranteed tear-jerker.

Favorite Details

Each seat had a mirrored acrylic personalized laser nameplate. Guests were also gifted silver pomegranate favors with the bride and groom’s favorite Ferrero Rocher hazelnut chocolates.

Each piece of the symphony was customized and hand-picked: everything from the Super Mario World ending credits during the recessional to Tupac’s California Love during cocktail hour.

Advice to Other Couples

Carve out a few minutes to spend with your significant other. The wedding coordinator was kind (and smart) enough to whisk away the bride and groom and provide them with some quiet time before they were formally introduced as husband and wife. Those few moments of silence are priceless.

Do yourself a favor and budget for a wedding coordinator. Their insight and help is absolutely invaluable.
