Nothing evokes drama and romance more than that of a gorgeous theater. Caitlin and John’s wedding at the historic Granada Theater downtown Santa Barbara has to be one of our favorite weddings on record.  While Santa Barbara wedding locations abound, the Granada Theater holds its own as a sparkling gem of a unique Santa Barbara wedding location and few are aware this magical wedding location actually plays host to some incredible private events.  With their ceremony at the Santa Barbara Courthouse sunken gardens, this wedding literally showcases two of Santa Barbara’s finest wedding locations. One of the things we loved most about this wedding was the fact that it was in such an elegant, dramatic setting and the bride and groom wanted an unpretentious menu, so we did a gourmet BBQ.

When the setting is as spectacular and dramatic as The Granada Theater, little is needed in  the way of decor.  Just amazing food, great entertainment , a happy newly-wed couple and happy guests.  The rest just unfolds naturally. But don’t take our word for it.  Check out these fantastic images  by I (heart) My Groom Photography which showcase this Granada Theater wedding and judge for yourself.
