For the past few weeks, I have been in the process of catching up with all of the amazing photos from our wedding weekend, and I feel like I’ve finally collected so many from friends and family …. so now it’s time to share them!
A Rooftop Rehearsal Dinner
We started the rehearsal in the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Montecito to run through what we thought would be a very smooth ceremony 🙂 I will have more on the actual ceremony on that in my next post 🙂
After we practiced at the church, we headed to the Canary Hotel in downtown Santa Barbara, where Leo’s parents hosted the most beautiful rehearsal dinner! The food included multiple types of salads, three types of pastas, and a carving station with beef & salmon.
The rooftop has stunning views of the mountains and the sea, and Leo and I felt like it would be the perfect location to kick off the celebrations. Since the majority of our friends and family were traveling from Mexico, the Midwest, New York and even London, we wanted to be sure to show them the best that Santa Barbara has to offer.
We had quite a big rehearsal dinner, but we felt that it was really important for those who were traveling from great distances to be included in the entire weekend activities. And although it was a really big dinner, it was a wonderful way for both sides of the family to spend time together, making the actual wedding that much more enjoyable.
Thank you to our friends and family who came to celebrate with us! We had such an amazing rehearsal dinner!
The wedding post is up next, so stay posted! xx
