Family and friends pulled together for many elements of  Kassia and Nathan’s romantic wedding at Rockwood Woman’s Club (check out the gorgeous floral design).   And with one of Santa Barbara’s most experienced wedding planners Ann Johnson at the helm, this event was full of charm and beauty.

Under the canopy of the historic ceremonial oak tree on the Rockwood terrace the couple said “I do” and then joined friends and family for a lovely cocktail reception, followed by an evening of dinner and dancing in the elegant vintage main indoor site.  Kassia and Nathan chose a menu which nodded to California’s Spanish heritage (see below) and all topped off with a little something sweet from Crushcakes.  

Rockwood Woman’s Club is a  Spanish Colonial style building secluded in the foothills of Santa Barbara, beginning the drive up to the American Riviera, just behind the Santa Barbara Mission.   Its shaded-by-trees oasis with ample, convenient self-parking and versatile lay-out combined with the gorgeous setting make it one of the most popular Santa Barbara wedding locations available.
