As one of the biggest buildings in Santa Barbra, all of our spaces total at over 23,000 square feet. What originally started out as a "lemon-packing" plant has now turned into the homes of some of the area's best businesses. We love working next to so many talented people, meet the companies all below!
This past weekend our friends of Santa Barbara Middle School hosted their annual school dance at The Narrative. Students from grades 6th through 9th came for a night of dancing and fun to enjoy in our event space.
After a few years exploring other opportunities, we are excited to welcome back Rachel to The Narrative family! She is back and better than ever, handling all of our event operations. When she describes herself in three words, she is LOUD, funny, and compassionate, and we are so happy to have her energy once again in our creative space.
Colette and Palmer transformed our creative space into a wedding wonderland. Natural hues with bright floral accents decorated our event space from wall-to-wall. Each detail was very personal to the couple, with polaroid photo lines of their adventures all around our event space, as well as their initials adorning the décor.
Brian McLaren is a man of many talents! As an author, teacher, and speaker, Brian had a lot of his own wisdom to impart on this community. He focused on the topics of his newly released book, The Great Spiritual Migration, to lead the discussion of this special one night event.
Our event space transformed into a charming scene with the most eloquent details. Milk and Honey Rentals helped bring the vintage feel to life with a comfy lounge area for everyone to enjoy. Cream hues with pops of pink, purple and blue coated The Narrative from wall to wall exuding the most happy and positive vibes for this celebration of love!
It's never too late to celebrate! After having to reschedule their holiday party three times because of the fires and mudslides this winter, Procore Technologies FINALLY threw their annual holiday bash at The Narrative this past weekend.
Radiant red roses and accompanying petals, from Shells Petals Florist, gracefully enhanced our space. Matched by white accents, like paper lamps and table cloths, the red roses perfectly complemented the decor. The set-up and decorations created the perfect environment to celebrate love!
Flowers and lush greenery galore, guests gathered in the amazing natural scenery to watch this couple become one! Love, laughter, and happiness filled The Garden and guests brought that high energy over to our creative space to celebrate, with a little help from the Santa Barbara Trolley!
The smiles that we had missed so dearly came back through, and with each grin, we could see our community starting to rebuild. As every person entered into our creative space there was an immense sense of pride and support we could feel from each individual- we could finally start to feel the overwhelming hope and happiness that had been missing for so long.
