img_7115Tucked away behind the Queen of the Missions, Rockwood Woman’s Center has long been a Santa Barbara favorite wedding location.  With facilities made for large groups, with the intimacy and charm of a private estate, Rockwood also holds all the artistic lines of Santa Barbara architecture and history.  And with the plentiful landscaping and trees, is an especially welcome retreat during the warmer days of summer.

Maggie and Matt began the first steps of their marriage under the famous ceremonial oak tree (a name we have affectionately dubbed that beautiful tree) on the terrace, a location which has canopied in-love couples for many years as they said their “I do’s”.   We loved the menu they chose and also loved the colors and vibrant energy and hues of the gorgeous florals for this summer nuptial celebration. 

Menu Highlights: Hors D’oeuvres:   Steak Bites with Blue Cheese & Cilantro Pesto Dips;  Grilled Jumbo Shrimp with a Bloody Mary shot;  Warm Brie and Dried Apricot Filo Tartlet with Toasted Almonds | Dinner:   Fresh Chicken Breast Marinated with Olive Oil & Rosemary served with a  Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce;  Grilled Marinated Salmon Fillet with  Lemon Dill Sauce;  Creamy Risotto with Wild Mushrooms, Green Peas, and Fresh Parmesan ;  Grilled Asparagus with Confetti of Red Peppers ;  Shepard Salad with Blue Cheese, Roasted Walnuts & Cranberries with Champagne Vinaigrette | Coffee and Desserts
