Real Wedding | Lyndee + Ben

Sometimes I’m amazed at how easily simplicity and elegance go hand and hand. Lyndee and Ben’s California wedding is the perfect example of “less is more.” Of course, we all know that it’s the attention to detail that makes a beautiful celebration look effortless. And with Lyndee’s experience as a wedding and event coordinator herself, it’s no surprise that she planned a stylish party for her friends and family to enjoy. Cheers!

Lyndee + Ben | September 5, 2010 | Santa Barbara, California

The wedding

The ceremony and reception were held at the Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara. The atmosphere and décor were rustic yet elegant.

How Lyndee found her dream wedding dress

I knew I wanted it to be very simple and natural.  I was always looking for a romantic sheath type dress that was beautiful,  yet not over the top, and would allow me to wear sandals.  I also wanted to be comfortable in the dress.

The way Lyndee felt in her wedding dress

Completely myself!

Why Lyndee decided to sell her wedding dress

I am selling my dress because it is just sitting in my closet, and if someone else could get some use out of it, then great!  I didn’t marry my dress, I married my husband!  I hope another bride will celebrate her amazing day in this beautiful Vera Wang gown!
