Santa Barbara, CA
Cory Hardrict and Tia Mowry were married at the Biltmore Hotel in Santa Barbara. Over 170 guests were in attendance on the Monte Vista Lawn, including Brittany Daniel and Jaleel White.
Her four bridesmaids, including her twin sister, Tamera Mowry, wore custom Tadashi gowns.
The groom wore a satin Hugo Boss suit with an ivory tie.
The bride was escorted down the aisle on the arm of her father, Timothy Mowry, as singer Kenny Lattimore performed “For You.” She carried a bouquet of pink and purple roses with a diamond infinity necklace (her “something new”) wrapped around the base of the arrangement. The necklace was a wedding gift from her sister, Tamera.
The couple were married under an archway of pink, fuschia, lavendar and cream colored roses created by Fiore Designs.
After being pronounced husband and wife, guests cheered and celebrated by showering the couple with rose petals.
Following the ceremony, a “Midsummer Night’s Dream”-themed reception was held in the ballroom and a four-course dinner was served.
Mowry changed into a Kevan Hall bateau neck cocktail dress and Spare Soles slippers, so she could enjoy dancing. The couple’s first dance as husband and wife was to “Dangerously In Love 2” by Beyonce.
DJ Michael “Shell Hayes” then took over and played dance music all night.
Before the reception was over, guests were served a four-tier, Cake Divas wedding cake adorned with roses and Swarovski crystal butterflies.
