Its out! The Santa Barbara Independent's much anticipated "Annual Wedding Issue" is printed and scattered about the town in coffee shops and cafes. From local couples to out-of-town destination weddingers, the Santa Barbara event industry is thriving. Not to mention the numerous talented and creative event professionals that call this area home. There is a pull-out resource guide (a sort of YellowPages- wedding edition) featuring yours truly. Plus countless other venues, caterers, planners and musicians like our girl DJ Darla Bea A.K.A. our "Queen Event Coordinator." The articles lay out new trends in the world of weddings, the dos and don'ts of ceremonies, plus discuss the unique experience that comes from creating a DIY celebration. Also, a huge shout out to officiant Miriam Lindbeck for writing such a wonderful piece on the last three decades of weddings, how they've changed but how love always seems to remain the same.
