Garden Wedding at San Ysidro Ranch :: Margaret & Neil

A romantic Santa Barbara wedding for today – 120 guests joined Margaret and Neil at the San Ysidro Ranch in the Montecito foothills in Santa Barbara, full of natural beauty and history – it’s where John and Jackie Kennedy spent their honeymoon!




She carried a classic bouquet of lily-of-the-valley made by her mother from flowers that she grew at her beach house in Delaware and brought all the way out to Santa Barbara for the wedding. She also made the flower girl and bridesmaid bouquets.




A bagpiper led the groom and groomsmen to the ceremony site.






Each of the tables were named after a place that is special to Margaret and Neil.






Because Margaret is half Chinese, she wanted to incorporate a bit of her heritage into the day. Her niece and nephew changed into outfits purchase in Los Angeles’ Chinatown, and carried lanterns made by Mindy Rice to usher guests into the Colman Cottage for some after-dinner dancing.
