Destination Wedding at Belmond El Encanto


A destination wedding at Belmond El Encanto in Santa Barbara, California. Jorina and Ian tied the knot surrounded by a close group of family and friends after dating for 13 years!

Their spring wedding was a mix of a soft, elegant color palette expertly designed by Tessa Lyn Events. The couple were excited to have one of their favorite musicians, YouTube star Gabe Bondoc, perform at the ceremony. Jorina says “Gabe was really famous in the college-music circuit at the time, and his music played a prominent role in the early years of our relationship”.

The couple discovered while chatting on campus during college that they lived less than a mile apart and had mutual family and friend connections. They chose Santa Barbara as their destination wedding location because that is where Ian had proposed.
