Community Wedding Reception at Samarkand

The Samarkand celebrated love and weddings during a community-wide wedding reception at the faith-based senior living community. The Library Lounge featured wedding photos of Samarkand couples, some married for as long as 72 years – congratulations, Al and Arlene Noreen! Wedding cake and punch were served during the reception and resident couples enjoyed a horse-drawn carriage ride around campus by Ramon Becerra, a renowned expert horseman and trainer from Santa Ynez Valley.
