We’re excited to share that Shannon and Jon’s Four Seasons Santa Barbara Vow Renewal was featured in Inside Weddings! Together with Alyson Fox of Levine Fox Events and Mark’s Garden, we designed a romantic and intimate event for the couple’s closest family and friends.
Our Versailles Benches and Versailles Cane Back Chairs were featured in the beautiful ceremony for their 11 guests. And while the guest count was intimate, cocktail hour was still full of details including our tufted New York Bar Front and wooden Florence Bar Back. Reception dinner was nothing short of details from our custom linens and chair covers to chandeliers.
Inside Wedding shares the event with us by telling the story behind the vow renewal.
The family had been through a lot together over the years – in 2008 they tragically lost their son at two months old. The vow renewal would be about “celebrating the strength of our family and that we made it,” the bride confides.
The event was intimate, with just 11 guests from three generations of friendships. “They are the people who mean the most to us in our lives. Because of them, the day was absolutely perfect,” Shannon muses. To show their appreciation, the Turners, who resides in San Antonio, Texas, flew their loved ones to Los Angeles, and then surprised them with a helicopter ride to Santa Barbara for the festivities. “They had no idea where they were going!” Jon exclaims. “It was, by all accounts, magical,” adds the bride.
Following the emotional vow exchange, the Turner family and their loved ones enjoyed a candlelit dinner with the stunning Pacific Ocean as a backdrop. A wooden structure with verdant greenery and crystal chandeliers was suspended over the table, which featured lush white owers with pops of lilac. “Shannon has perfect taste,” Jon says of the design scheme chosen by his wife.
