Santa Barbara wine country boasts some epic vineyard locations: from formal wineries to more intimate private estate locations set in the middle of vineyards. The private estate wedding allows guests to feel that they are part of a home-wedding experience. Cecily and Sebastian chose El Sogno Del Fiore for their wedding and reception, which provided the perfect atmosphere of relaxed elegance and some fun for some of their special touches (see below). One of the great things about El Sogno Del Fiore is that it encourages guest interaction. We are especially honored to have had this wedding featured on the renowned Borrowed and Blue wedding blog!
Special Touches: Hanging escort cards where guests were invited to take their name and replace it with a photo; a “date jar”, where guests are asked to write down their best date ideas for the newlyweds in their new life together; a “sign and design a Jenga piece” station
