The Montecito Country Club is one of the loveliest jewels in Santa Barbara. With sweeping views of the Channel Islands and the Santa Barbara Harbor and the American Riviera, it is no wonder so many people choose Montecito Country Club for their special celebration. As a Ty Warner property, Montecito Country Club does its own catering and has a stellar reputation. Due to a very extraordinary circumstance, we were invited to cater Sophie and Geoff’s wedding at the Montecito Country Club.
It was a perfect Santa Barbara day for a wedding and it was such a pleasure working with the fine team at Montecito Country Club to produce this wedding. Here are some highlights:
