One of the best parts of our job is seeing the variety of event styles. Sometimes the most intimate weddings are the sweetest, as was the case with McKenzie and Paul at the historic Stow House. Their wedding day was filled with DIY touches and an understated, more relaxed feel while the couple focused on being with those they loved and a delicious meal with flawless service all in a historic Santa Barbara setting. The historic Stow House offers gardens … Read More
Because Katie and Faris grew up in Santa Barbara and lived in New York, they wanted their wedding to be a true reflection of both states, according to their wedding and wedding weekend event planner Jessica Kuipers of Onyx and Redwood. “Having the guests enjoy a sunset cruise on our West Coast shore for their Welcome Reception was a no brainer,” she said.
With a setting that nods to the historic and romantic old Spanish days of Santa Barbara, yet is tucked away in a very secluded (yet convenient) spot of downtown Santa Barbara, The Santa Barbara Historic Museum offers several distinct areas for hosting all different types of events. We especially love producing weddings there because each location feels distinct from the other and clients love saying their vows in the more intimate ceremony area and then adjourning to the more dramatic … Read More
Tucked away in the charming town of Ojai (just a half hour south of Santa Barbara and East into the hills overlooking the Topa Topa Mountain Range) life is a bit more relaxed. The sunsets up here are known as “pink moments” as the sun casts a colorful display on the mountain range that cradles the small city. From art galleries, wine tasting rooms, quaint shops and more, Ojai is a get-away paradise for those seeking some quiet and to … Read More
This wedding had a few special twists: not only was it hosted at one of the finest prep schools in our nation, the wedding couple partook of a lovely tea ceremony while guests relaxed floorside on comfie pillows under the sky. They also provided their own overlays for the reception tables: souvenirs they acquired during their travels, bringing a personal touch to their wedding day story. The colors for this wedding were magnificent and were only rivaled by the vibrant … Read More
What is there about the romance of a swing in springtime? Add to it the backdrop of a perfect private estate, a destination wedding hotspot like Santa Barbara and a gorgeous bridal couple, and you’ve got the recipe for some super charming wedding day memories reminiscent of a fairy tale (with a touch of rock-n-roll: check out bride Brittany’s fabulous jacket). Just as unique as our couples, we like to design menus that complement them. And Brittany and Devin blended … Read More
The private home for this Santa Barbara wedding didn’t need much decor-wise. Look at those gorgeous mountains and setting! But with Haute Blossoms Floral and wedding planner Leanne Elliott in charge of some of the finer details along with the incredible supporting event partner cast, this late summer wedding was bound to be a feast for the senses! We loved providing a complementary menu that expressed the newlywed’s tastes and helped them celebrate in style with their family and friends.
Described as “the premier wedding and event venue of Santa Barbara, Rockwood is an architectural jewel that stands secluded among the giant oaks and lush greenery of historic Mission Canyon.” We could not have said it better ourselves. Just around the corner from the Queen of the Missions sits a venue that allows incredible layout options for feel and flow. It is also affordable with plenty of guest parking and a blank canvas that is conducive to almost any event … Read More
Imagine celebrating your nuptials dancing under the stars surrounded by vineyards that seem to sprawl for miles.

With plenty of event space /layout options (including the ability to use part of the Tasting … Read More
