San Luis Obispo, CA
Kristy Swanson and Lloyd Eisler were married at the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, CA. The Valentine’s Day themed wedding took place in the hotel ballroom in front of 100 guests.
The bride wore an Amy Michelson “Amore” gown and Carmen Steffens shoes for the afternoon ceremony. Prior to entering the ballroom, her stunt double, dressed in a wedding dress, tripped down a flight of stairs, stunning guests and causing them to gasp. After friends and family discovered it wasn’t the real bride, Swanson entered the room and walked down the aisle to “Crazy Love” by Van Morrison.
The twenty-minute ceremony was officiated by a female priest. During the vows, the bride and groom invited their three sons to make a family bouquet. Each boy put an individual flower into a vase to symbolize the unification of their two families.
Following the ceremony, a reception was held in the wine cave where the couple shared their first dance to “I’ll Be” by Edwin McCain. The newlyweds enjoyed filet mignon and a four-tier wedding cake for dessert.
