Nathalie + Brent

MANY HAPPY RETURNS TO SANTA BARBARA

Party crashing with an unexpected twist

Back to Real Weddings

When Brent and his friends crashed an all-girls bunco party, little did he know that he would be meeting his future wife. Fast forward to their wedding planning, when the duo decided Santa Barbara would make the perfect spot; the “magical” destination is where they first vacationed together as a couple, and they’ve come back many times since. The “non-traditional and funky” vibe of the hotel felt like an ideal fit, and they loved the rooftop lounge and restaurant, too. They were thrilled with their choice and only wish they had had more time to enjoy the hotel in the midst of all the festivities.

Nathalie spent the morning writing her husband-to-be a letter that she ended up reading during the vows. She enjoyed getting ready with family and friends in the “perfect” space, and when the ceremony finally rolled around, both Nathalie and Brent felt completely at peace.

“It’s hard to pinpoint one thing….The staff was excellent and everyone took great care of us. The hotel is gorgeous and the perfect setting for a wedding.”

The ceremony and reception occurred on the hotel’s breathtaking rooftop, where the flowers, décor and atmosphere came together beautifully. The groom donned a J.Crew suit; the bride wore a Mia Bella Del Mar grown. Afterward, the newlyweds spent their first night as husband and wife in our luxurious hotel.
