We kicked off the first days of summer with a beautiful wedding reception, honoring the love and commitment between Jill and Curtis! Following their ceremony at the Santa Barbara Courthouse, the bride and groom celebrated their marriage with friends and family here at The Narrative Loft.
Santa Barbara based, construction management software company, Procore, joined us at the loft to eat, drink, and be merry! In celebration of each other and their 2016 successes, the bunch gathered for a Christmas party hop.
'Tis the season for celebration. No, not the kind where we all stuff our faces and cover every inch of our homes with tacky displays of holiday cheer. 'Tis the season for commending our young people's hard work. The time of year we celebrate our grads! UCSB sorority Lambda Sigma Gamma recognized their accomplishments with an awards dinner, welcomed their new members and honored their graduating members moving on to the next chapter of their lives.
The Santa Barbara marketing community ascended on the loft for a night of pizza, beer and networking. Opportunities to meet new faces in the field were abound, as well as the opportunity to gain insight and expertise from leaders in the tech marketing sphere. The main feature were presentations from a few of the marketing heads at AppFolio, Ontraport, and Invoca on ways to improve and streamline marketing methods.
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."
We are so excited to have Miss Darla Bea on our team as our Queen "Venue" Coordinator and on-site DJ! She lights up the loft with her enthusiasm and makes us laugh with her sarcasm. She takes the cake for having the best costumes in the county and is well-known in the Santa Barbara community, often playing gigs several nights a week.
There is something so enchanting and romantic about a winter wedding. Having it right before Christmas when the entire world seems a glow makes it even more charming. With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays it's hard to imagine the stress of planning a wedding this time of year, but this couple and their family pulled it off beautifully! Props and congratulations to this lovely duo!
A sorority is the kind of student group that brings women together for reasons beyond school and parties. It's an organization that fosters friendship and encourages bonds that last a lifetime. Alpha Chi Omega, one of the sororities at UCSB, confirmed these lifelong bonds at its 50th reunion party at the Narrative Loft.
This summer, local nonprofit C.A.R.E.4Paws invited students K-12 in Santa Barbara County to participate in a Pawsitive Thinking Youth Project. Students were asked to create an art piece or poem on the concept of “kindness to all living beings” and received more than 70 great projects from kids all the way from...
With all guests dressed in ivory and 80's era cover band, The Molly Ringwald Project providing the jams it sure was a nice day for a white wedding! Debbie and Orla held their reception here at The Narrative and it was definitely a celebration to remember.
We are a creative space for Santa Barbara events and photography: a place to tell your story! To eliminate any confusion, we're still located at the same place we are just a new and improved version of ourselves. Michelle Lee is going to remain as the space's creative leader and we will continue to provide a beautiful photography space and amazing event venue.
Wow! Where did all these people come from?
That's what we were asking ourselves around 7pm when we surveyed the 100+ creatives who joined us to celebrate the launch of 240 Studio, Santa Barbara's largest commercial production studio.
For those who missed the party that's good.
Because now you get the chance to have a private tour without having to shout above the din of the throng. We're here everyday and welcome drop by visits.
Although you really did miss a fun night;) A big thanks to all the creative professionals who dropped by and shared a glass of cheer with us.
