The unmistakable iconic backdrop of the Santa Barbara Courthouse and its historic Mural Room set the tone for Brooke and Brandon’s emotional vows. Meanwhile, just a few blocks away, our team was getting ready to welcome the newlyweds and their guests at the lovely Unitarian Society for a tapas-style reception in true Santa Barbara style.
Some special notes on this wedding:
- The groom is a distiller on the East Coast and we loved making some of the specialty cocktails from his liquors, including The Summer Seabreeze, Amber Sunset, Rum Paradise, Pineapple Smoke, Casa de Verde (spicy margarita), and Sparkling Rose Paloma.
- For dessert time, we tray-passed mini milkshakes in little milk bottles to add a little fun and guest interaction.
This wedding was so joyful and fun to produce with all the personalized touches. We wish Brooke and Brandon every happiness in their new life together.
