Hopelessly in love, Malibu luxury realtors Tony and London Giordano’s beachside wedding at the BACARA RITZ CARLTON in Santa Barbara featured a structured modern chic look with a organic, romantic flare. A neutral colour palette of black and white with a hint of burgundy, London designed her wedding to be modern and minimalist with a romantic, dreamy, whimsical feel and these images by Southern California wedding photographer AMY GOLDING show it off perfectly!
Officiated by a friend who is like family, the ceremony took place overlooking the ocean and featured vows the pair had written themselves. London walked down the aisle to an acoustic version of “Canon in D (Pachabel)” by a Swedish guitarist named Per Olov Kindgren, which was the perfect subtle version to be played next to the ocean. VALLEY FLORAL DESIGN assembled an abundance of white blooms combined with a hint of the brides favourite maroon dahlia with greenery to anchor the space. London and Tony both wore CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN heels and dress shoes because of their love for the red soled shoe. They absolutely loved the pop of red bottoms on the dance floor. London also loved the detailed lace top of her wedding gown with a hidden slit by RITA VINIERIS from KINSLEY JAMES COUTURE BRIDAL. The engagement ring, surrounded in pave diamonds, was designed after the 130 year Tiffany & Co Anniversary ring. With a limited edition of 130 rings, Tony was happy to share that now his bride had the “131st.” Their classic invitation suite included a hand painted olive branch symbolising the harmony and peace of their love and life together. The olive branch was found throughout the wedding decor. Benigets are the bride’s favourite dessert, so the groom surprised her with a “Bride's Beniget Station" after their wedding day dinner, specially prepared for her by the pastry chef at the Ritz Carlton Bacara and paired with a vanilla sauce.
