Amanda and Alfonso returned to the Santa Ynez Valley, where the groom grew up, and to stage a vibrant, modern fiesta with earthy, homespun touches. The couple was married beneath an oak tree by Alfonso's family pastor at the Chamberlin Ranch.
Amanda wore a strapless lace gown by Pronovias, which she purchased from Mon Amie Bridal Salon in Costa Mesa. "I loved the modern Spanish feel of the gown," says the bride.
Dinner featured a Mexican spread that included a make-your-own taco bar. Instead of traditional wedding cake, the couple decided to serve guests four flavors of cupcakes.
