Swooning Over This Celebration

Swooning Over This Celebration

From the milk and cookie station, to the heavenly blooms scattered about, everything little thing about Sara and Anthony's celebration has us head over heels. Day of coordinators Jennifer and Natasha from Swoon California wowed with their attention to detail. After the bride and groom said their vows looking out over the Santa Barbara Harbor at Santa Barbara City College the whole party jumped on  Santa Barbara Trolley Company 's trolley and made their way to The Narrative. They boogied the night away to beats from DJ Darla Bea, sipped on hand-crafted delights from The Good Lion and no Santa Barbara party is complete without.

Tyler and Jessica's celebration was a true family affair. A big shoutout to the groom's mother Jaimie, for organizing the entire night and making the loft dreamy with her decorations. The space was full of darling details like personalized mason jars for each person, loads of framed photos, pretty signage and little potted plants. In an ode to their family's roots, the celebration had rustic touches and plenty of Southern charm.

TaRell and Kalyse's reception was an absolute blast with guests dancing to songs hand-picked by the bride and groom. This was a true celebration or shall we say party of love. There was plenty of laughing, dancing, smiling, joking, eating and drinking! However in an ode to the traditional, the bouquet and garter were thrown for a lucky man and woman to anticipate their own turn walking down the aisle. Classic Party Rentals transformed the loft into a classic reception space while local favorite, Mony's Taqueria filled guests tummies from their taco truck. Sweet wedding wishes, Mr. and Mrs. Jackson!
