What a joy it was to produce this very intimate daytime wedding at the childhood home of a beautiful bride. From the moment guests arrived, the sounds of Spanish and Lebanese guitar floated in the air, champagne and wine flowed, delectable hors d’oeuvres were passed on silver trays, and the jasmine scented garden was both verdant and stunning. An elegant luncheon was served on white porcelain atop a sixteen-foot-long table, laden with peonies, ranunculus, spray roses, viburnum, and scabiosa in assorted silver containers. Lovely hand calligraphed menus graced each white linen napkin and the whole aesthetic was one of perfectly understated refinement. The Four Seasons Biltmore Santa Barbara catered the luncheon and created the charming individual white chiffon wedding cakes on tiny porcelain stands, each with a white silk ribbon and a petit fern. Delicate French cookies were served with coffee and tea. What a perfect daytime affair for a lovely couple!
