Outcome

On a sprawling lawn overlooking the Santa Barbara coastline, Wayne Gurnick created a luxurious ceremony aisle of red rose petals leading to a stunning wedding canopy. Following, 200 guests were treated to a dinner and after party set on an outdoor terrace. To create beauty and intimacy, Wayne and team fashioned a canopy over long feasting tables and suspended airplane cable to create a grid for over 100 ruby glass flower vases in different shapes, then wired for light and layered with greens and flowers to mask the grid and complete the look. For the after party in the rotunda, he constructed a sultry high gloss chocolate dance floor, draped the room in rich fabric complemented by table linens, lounge furniture and the cake.

"We were lost in the fairy tale Wayne created for us from the moment we arrived. Wayne is a study in elegance and charm & dignified grace—qualities that set the tone for the evening. Our feet still have not yet touched the ground!"
