The Santa Ynez Inn specializes in intimate destination wine country weddings. One of the benefits to having a small wedding is it allows the couple to really enjoy all their guests and feels more like a private luncheon party in your own home. We were delighted to host Lucynda and Bill for their nuptials in our garden and lunch in our intimate Parlour. With a guest size of 32, this couple really nailed a truly memorable wedding celebration by including their closest family and friends and keeping everything simple and uncluttered.
Photographer Kim Douglas (whose images grace this BLOG) took the couple to the historic Santa Ynez Mission for some pre-ceremony photographs. With the bride doing her own flowers in a Victorian style which tied into the already -existing Victorian themed Santa Ynez Inn, it was a charming storybook wedding to remember.
Guests enjoyed a lovely luncheon buffet catered by The Santa Ynez Inn:
Seasonal Sliced Fresh Fruit
Hearts of Romaine Salad, Garlic Crouton Crumble
with Classic Caesar Dressing
Pan Seared Salmon
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Freshly Baked Bread and Butter
Wedding Cake & Cupcakes Provided by Decadence Fine Confections
And perhaps one of the best signature amenities to a Santa Ynez Inn destination wine country wedding? Being able to tip toe back to your luxury room at the end of a day of celebrating. Lucynda and Bill enjoyed one of our luxury jacuzzi suites and said it was one of the highlights of their wedding. We are so glad they chose us for their special day and hope to have them back on their one year anniversary.
