Ceremonial Step Back in Time at The Historic Santa Maria Inn

IMG_2527

Kristin & David wanted to do something fun and different for their ceremony and reception. By putting an “Old Hollywood” theme spin on it. And what a better place to do it, than at the Historic Santa Maria Inn? All their guests, kept to the theme, by wearing flapper dresses and tuxedos with tails. Krissy with Events By Krissy coordinated the event and help bring their vision to life.

After a beautiful ceremony in the garden area, Kacie & Patrick with SLO Town Studios took Kristin & David away to take pictures. At the same time, their guest moved inside for cocktails, where they had fun walking the red carpet and then getting a little goofy in Snap Cubby’s Photo Booth.

Once Lauren & Diana with the Santa Maria Inn put the finishing touches on the buffet table, Kristin & David were introduced into their reception and then danced to “I Don’t Dance” by Lee Brice for their first dance.

While the guest enjoyed their dinner, they listened to 50’s Big Band and Great Gatsby-type music, which set the mood. After dinner, we started their toast, which included four of their kids. Kristin has two young boys and David has a young daughter and son, all from past relationships. Hearing these kids talk about their new mother and father was so sweet. This day, they created a new family!

After the toasts, Kristin & Davidcut their beautiful cake, provided by Gina’s Piece of Cake. Now it was time to get this dance party started! This group of people were so much fun, and had an awesome time. And what a huge variety of request songs. They danced to everything from old school to cumbia, country to pop!

The last song of the evening was “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” by B. Hedley & J. Warnes….and of course there were those who tried to do the Patrick Swayze & Jennifer Grey lift. Lol  But what a joy it was to watch Kristin & David dance slow with one another to this song and taking in the pleasure of their wonderful day.

Thanks Kristin & David for letting me participate in your fantastic day!
