Alissa and Anthony’s luncheon at San Ysidrio Ranch in Santa Barbara was so charming and elegant, it’s hard to believe it was planned in three weeks. Yes, you read that right! Not only that, but the bride spent two of those weekends in friends’ wedding parties and the last moving her letterpress business from Mond down to LA.
Alissa and Anthony knew their priority was to be married and living together in LA and Alissa knew she’d end up filling a long engagement with new tasks and decisions to worry over. They considered a true elopement, but when they found the San Ysidro Ranch, the venue was too good not to invite a few more friends to lunch.
After a touching ceremony beneath the mountain, guests were invited to the hacienda lawn for lemonade followed by lunch on the wine cellar patio. Alissa and Anthony’s classic style complimented the charm of San Ysidro, which is rich with Old Hollywood lore. In the end, they created a lovely, romantic soiree reminiscent of the days when Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O. holidayed in Montecito.
