guidezilla wedding

So... people have been asking when I am going to post pictures of my own wedding - so here they are!

And although I planned my own wedding, I, too, needed help the day of.  So, Melissa Sylvester, wedding and event coordinator from the Rincon Beach Club, took control and did an INCREDIBLE job!  [P.S. - they cater outside events too! Definitely a must for the Santa Barbara area].

Fun details:
- Instead of a full dinner, we did an hors d'oeuvres and dessert reception, including baked brie with pesto and assorted fruit, fresh baked cookies with shot glasses of milk, chocolate fondue, lime brulée on individual spoons, and a full candy bar.

- Our candy bar featured candies that were favorites of the bride, groom, mother of the bride, father of the bride, mother of the groom, and father of the groom.  Guests were able to fill up cellophane bags with their candy mix and sealed them with stickers that said "Brett and Nicole."

- A lounge area around a fire pit was complemented by a s'mores bar and a s'mores attendent, who assisted guests with roasting marshmallows and creating the perfect s'more.

- Our amazing florist Gretchen from Details of the Day used limes and coffee beans in our centerpieces to tie in the green and brown color scheme.  She also hung votive candles from the altar to create a candlelit atmosphere.
