Intimate Elopement at the Santa Barbara Courthouse


For Ifer and Patrick's sweet elopement the Santa Barbara Courthouse, and it's beautiful bell tower, served at the backdrop for the couple's nuptials. Ifer went with a non-traditional, simple, short white dress and paired it with turquoise mary janes pumps. Her bouquet designed by Ella & Louie, featured her favorite color, pink, and was made up of roses, anemones and succulents. After the I do's, the couple enjoyed a lovely dinner with close family and friends at The OrchidFeast & Fest served a tasty meal at one long family style table. All was captured by photographer Brittany Taylor.

Elegant Green and White Wedding at the Coral Casino


We are so excited the iconic Santa Barbara Four Seasons has just officially reopened after the tragic Montecito flood in January. In honor of that good news, we are excited to share Annie and Rick's elegant green and white wedding. Annie donned a lace wedding gown with a full shirt and paired it with a traditional white bouquet featuring garden roses. The verdant palm garden with its mountain views served as the backdrop for ceremony. Blue Magnolia Events decorated the spot with a lush green and white arbor was decorated with olive branch and elegant phalenopsis orchids. 

After the "I do's" the couple went down on to Butterfly Beach for sunset portraits by photographers Michael and Anna Costa. Dinner was held outside on the terrace of the Coral Casino. Elegant draping and chandeliers by Bella Vista Designs added a luxurious feel to the space. Gold framed mirrors featured calligrapy by Penned by Shani  and featured the seating chart. Taupe linens popped the elegant centerpieces of roses, hydranga, ranunculus, mock orange, and clematis. Finally, DJ Patrick spun the tunes and guests danced the night away.

Santa Ynez Wedding Wedding Location: Cebada Winery


We are so excited to be managing Cebada Winery as a new wedding location in the Santa Ynez Valley. To celebrate, we planned an intimate lunch for our wedding planner friends. We toured the stunning 100 acre farm which features breathtaking wine country views and can accommodate up to 200 guests. Feast & Fest provided a delicious picnic lunch and florals by Anna Le Pley Taylor decorated the tables which featured calligraphy from Penned By Shani, china from Onyx & Redwood and rentals from The Tent Merchant. Nina and The Box Theory showed off Forbidden Fruit Orchards many gift and favor options and Michael and Anna Costa and I Heart My Groom were there to capture the details of this beautiful event.

For ceremony there are two options, The Vineyard Oaks area and The Hilltop (available at an additional fee). Receptions are held on a large lawn where a trellised wall serves as a backdrop for the head-table, dj or band. Guests need to be shuttled to the location and amplified music must be off at 10pm. There is basic lighting and power available, but a generator will be needed for most events. All wine served must be provided by the Cebada Winery. And of course, a month-of wedding coordinator is required for all events. If you're interested in learning more about the location, feel free to email us or call 805-448-8028 for packages & pricing.
