monica + stuart . the wedding

Monica + Stuart were married in Santa Barbara at the Four Seasons Biltmore... I was excited to discover that Stuart would be incorporating tradition into his attire, the kilts were awesome :)

There were so many beautiful and thoughtful details... Monica customized her gown by adding the black detailing... their flowerbearer was their sweet dog... the ceremony site was circular (my favorite arrangement; photography wise), the flower petals were swirled rather than scattered --very interesting! Monica's grandfather even performed a few songs at the reception; his energy exploded as soon as he sat on that bench! Suddenly he was carrying on like he was in his 20's once again!
I loved that.
