A Santa Barbara wedding includes all the wonderful areas surrounding it. Just south of Santa Barbara up the mountains from Ventura is the charming mountain village of Ojai. Known for “pink moment” sunsets that paint all the mountains in a pink hue, Ojai has one world-class resort, a few small inns and a community of lovely homes. Courtney and Josh chose to say their vows and celebrate in their private home with a classic Chevy Impala. Can you say sexy?
The lively menu celebrating the Spanish heritage of California also was conveyed in the tablescape decor with bright colors reminiscent of summer and celebration.
