The Wedding
The ceremony took place on the grass beside the lily pond, officiated by a close friend of the bride.  The vows were brief but beautiful, and the overhanging greenery and palm trees made for a truly luxurious cocktail hour immediately following.

Dinner was served inside, with a stunning view of all of Santa Barbara below.  After several speeches and a delicious display of quality local ingredients, the party continued with dancing and laughing long in to the night.  The bride and groom took their leave around 2AM, while plenty of guests remained smoking cigars with the glittering city below.

Emily’s Wedding Dress Search
I estimate that I tried on 20 dresses in total.  I really wanted a dress that was sophisticated, sexy, glamorous, and show-stopping.  I quickly realized that Vera Wang is the way to go and once I tried on the Lillian gown, my heart skipped a beat.  The interesting and delicate lace suited the outdoor venue perfectly and the mermaid silhouette gave me the va-va-voom that I was looking for.

Why She’s Selling Her Wedding Dress
I decided to sell my wedding dress because I know how daunting it is to struggle with budget.  My husband was sweet enough to help me purchase my gown, without seeing it beforehand!  It is too beautiful to only be worn once and if I could help another bride feel as amazing as I felt on the most important day of their life, I am happy to do so!
