img_6121We love weddings at the gorgeous downtown Santa Barbara Historical Museum.  For those clients looking for a beautiful backdrop and setting that allows them to feel as though they stepped back to old time, historic Santa Barbara, there is simply no better location. Conveniently located from many boutique hotels, museums and shopping, many brides and grooms as well as their guests find this location charmingly perfect as a nuptial destination.

Kelly and Richard added all the “pops” and “wow” for embellishing this already gorgeous and immaculate site.  While the Santa Barbara Historical Museum doesn’t need a lot of décor, what this couple did was enhance it with vibrant colors, special touches, and lots of personalization.  We were so honored to be a part of it, and were especially thrilled with the menu they chose (see below), as well as working with some incredible event supply partners to start Kelly and Richard off to their happily ever after.

We are also happy to report that this wedding was just featured on Borrowed and Blue wedding blog! 

Special Touch Highlights: Personalized signs, dessert buffet and candy bar in addition to wedding cake, late night snacks that included an old family recipe (see below), and cable-car style transportation provided fun for guests so they could enjoy the views of Santa Barbara.
