April 01 1988 was marked by a great event in Santa Barbara : the so much awaited wedding of Eden and Cruz ! Even postponed twice (in 1985 after a fire in the Capwell hotel, then in 1987 after Elena Nikolas's interference), this union was awaited for a long time by the heroes, as by the fans of the show...

Eden would have needed many days before finally identifying this magic place she had seen in a dream. Because the place of this wedding is a real symbol for her : it is indeed in Pebble Creek that she had been conceived by Sophia and C.C., more than twenty years ago...

Obviously, all the family and friends have been invited, including Julia, Victoria, Andrea, Cain and even Gina and Keith, who succeeded in worming their way among the guests, in spite of a somewhat showy costume...

The honeymoon took place... in Pebble Creek, once all the guests away ! It is there that the legend of the hotel took life in reality : Amelia, the young woman who, one century earlier, had thrown herself in the ocean to find her young husband whose boat had just made a shipwreck, succeeded in finding her beloved in the park, not far from Eden and Cruz. A good sign for the couple...

Eden's dress, made of twenty meters of silk taffeta, cost the moderate amount of 16 000 dollars ! It is costume designer Richard Bloore who undertook to draw all the dresses and costumes of the guests, based on the style "old south" of the last century. The shooting took place in fact in the property of the castle of Stonepine, North California, not far from Carmel. 110 hectares were rented especially for the occasion, as well as the superb residence, overhanging the Pacific ocean.

The episode of the fateful "I do" has been the most watched of all Santa Barbara in the United States, but also the one which brought more money to NBC : having envisaged the high ratings, it had increased the tariffs of the advertising during the episode !
