We went to beautiful Santa Barbara for our honeymoon. We traveled by train which was very romantic and relaxing. Our hotel in Santa Barbara was one block from the beach, from the train station and from State Street which is the famous main strip for dining and shopping. In our hotel room there was a bucket with a champagne bottle and two champagne glasses with a congratulations card from the hotel staff. We went on the trolley city tour, we rented a two seater bike, we went to the beach, we visited the Mission, we went to the famous Santa Barbara Pier but, most of all we relaxed and enjoyed being Mr. and Mrs. Rodrigo Salazar, finally.
We spent our wedding night at the Arcadia Hilton. The hotel was wonderful and clean. There was a bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room. We had a great view of the pool and the mountains from our room window.
Our reception was held outdoors under a large tent. It was catered and held at the Santa Anita Gardens. The venues decor were statues, bird baths, and flowers gardens through out the reception area, perfect for a garden theme wedding. The food was great and it was the perfect venue for us. Lots more reception pictures under bio photos.
Our wedding shower was held at the home of my brother and my sister-in-law. We had a couples shower. Rodrigo and I wore our bride and groom t-shirts. The wedding party also wore their t-shirts that I purchased for them with their names and either matron of honor, bridesmaid, best man or groomsmen on the front. We had lots of fun playing games, eating and opening our gifts. We even had a section for the kids with a jumper, toys, coloring activities, and I also had wedding shower goody bags for them.
We took our engagement pictures at the Santa Monica Beach. We went during the week after work and it was getting so late and dark by the time we got there. It was cold that day too but I think the pictures came out great. Lots more engagement pictures under bio photos.
