Few wine country venues have the picture-perfect backdrop as well as the perfect amenities to accommodate and produce large events with such success as Santa Barbara’s own Firestone Winery. From the panoramic views of The Mesa, where couples say “I do” under a historic ceremonial oak tree, to the incredible warm glow of the Barrel Room, to the Courtyard where most choose to host dinner and dancing under the stars in a setting reminiscent of a vintage Tuscan Villa “patio”, Firestone Winery is the stuff of which wine country wedding dreams are made.
Khalehla and Cody chose to have Solvang Trolley Company chauffeur guests to the Mesa and back to main winery for all the festivities. One thing is clear, as you will see from all the photos below, there was incredible sparkle and glow at this winery wedding! Perhaps one of our favorite elements was that of the wine country-style menu this couple chose. They selected some of the best flavor combinations for savoring with Firestone’s incredible wines (see menu below).
