A Gorgeous welcome dinner

Get ready to see a guest welcome dinner that will leave you wanting more!  If you are planning a pre-wedding welcome or a rehearsal dinner get ready to take notes.

Cassie and Todd welcomed their 75 guests to a welcome dinner at the Belmond El Encanto and it was just the right setting to kick off a fun filled weekend. Nestled in the lush hills of sunny Santa Barbara guests were greeted with the crystal clear blue sea and a glass of champagne topped with gold dust. The elegant dining room set the tone for this chic yet simple glam affair their entire weekend would reflect. Pulling inspiration from Santa Barbara, each long banquet table was lined with gold lanterns and stunning florals.  Gorgeous crystals dangled from the ceiling and candles lined the tables. Guests enjoyed an intimate dinner and toasted one by one until the beaming couple had heard from every guest.  That sounds like a lot of talking, but this crowd was a hoot!  This was by far, our favorite way to start the wedding weekend! 

With the crash of the waves, clinking of glasses and laughter of their most treasured friends and family  filling the room what more could the future Mr. and Mrs. ask for? A stunning chic wedding perhaps? Oh, how we just can't wait to show you their wedding day!!

Stay tuned:)
