Julie and Johnny had a wonderful destination wedding on a gorgeous Santa Barbara day last month. They live in Massachusetts and family came in from all over the place, including Hawaii! It was one of those days that just goes so smoothy and is so lovely all around. The ceremony took place at Mission Santa Barbara which is also where Julie's parents were married in 1975, so it was extra special for them. Ceremony: Mission Santa Barbara Reception: Elings Park Catering: Catering Connect Florist: Alpha Floral in Santa Barbara. This is a traditional from Julie's family. Her grandfather put a penny in her mom's shoe for good luck and told her that it was the last penny that she'll ever get from him...so that's what Julie's dad did with her.
