Inspired by @talor My wedding was also 2 years ago but we were just recently featured on https://www.theknot.com/real-weddings/an-alfresco-summer-wedding-at-arnoldis-cafe-in-santa-barbara-california-album so I thought I would share the famous Dude's wedding! It's so funny the way magazines spin things so here is my account...
  1. A few details...my something borrowed...jewels from one of my best friends weddings a gift from her grandmother.

  2. We did everything in our wedding "in house" aka each service was provided by a friend or family! The gal who did my hair and makeup has been a childhood friend since age 8!

  3. @HisDudeness did pretty good on the groom's gift! A canvas photo of our proposal which also happened to be in Santa Barbara.

  4. Another "In house item" a beautiful sign made by my best friend.

  5. The most gorgeous bridesmaids you've ever seen! Also special because my wedding location was decided on the very steps we stand on, with most of the ladies pictured, many years before the proposal on one of numerous birthday trips to Santa Barbara and the Historic Court house!

  10. And my mother...I haven't spoken about her in this forum but she is chronically ill with health rapidly declining in recent years...I honestly never really believed I would be lucky enough to have her with us on my special day but she was....I didn't even mind that she said "no returns"
