In Texas, it’s all about family and big hospitality. And while Stefanie and Patrick got married in Santa Barbara at the gorgeous Maritime Museum overlooking the Santa Barbara Harbor, their big-hearted Texas spirit shown through in all they did, including small touches like having pre-poured water and iced tea on dining tables waiting for guests (and no wine glasses). Because that’s how it’s done in Texas.
Warm and fun-loving, the inspired menu showcased the best of Central California on the coast: from the mouth-watering tri tip, fresh seafood, to good ol’ Texas country comfort food: our classic baked mac-n-cheese.
This was a super fun couple to work with and we loved being a part of their special day in one of Santa Barbara’s most iconic ocean side locations.
