CHANEL DUVAL WEDS KEVIN THOMMES in a Fairy Tale Santa Barbara event

A picture-perfect wedding ceremony at the Presidio Chapel and reception at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum were the settings for the June 29, 2013, marriage of Chanel Duval and Kevin Thommes. After exchanging vows, a mariachi band escorted their guests to the Casa Covarrubias for a cocktail hour and classical guitar music. The wedding party then made its way to the museum courtyard for a magical twilight reception and dinner and evening of music and celebration.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Foster A. Duval of Barrington, IL. the great-granddaughter of the late Iris Points and granddaughter of Joan Brooks, both of Santa Barbara. Brooke Duval, sister of the bride, was the Maid of Honor. Chanel was graduated from Hope College in Holland, MI and is employed by Motorola in Schaumburg, IL.

Mr. and Mrs. Michael Thommes of Naperville, IL. are the parents of the groom. Kevin was graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University and is employed by Travelers Insurance. The groom's brother David Thommes was his Best Man and officiating the ceremony was his close college friend Sam Sheeley of Houston, TX.

The romantic occasion was lovingly captured on canvas by wedding painter Sam Day-a surprise given to the new couple by Chanel's grandmother. Though they make their home in Illinois, the couple frequently visits Santa Barbara to visit family and friends and is grateful for this amazing venue for their special day.
