CHRIS AND ELIZABETH'S WEDDING

July, 2009 in Santa Barbara

"Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be - managed on a budget, augmented by wonderful people and wonderful help, great vendors who supported us every step of the way, planning through execution, and lovely venues. The ceremony was beautiful, solemn, grand, and heartwarming. The reception was fun, enjoyable, and yet the fun was classy and managed. The important people were their to acknowledge our commitment to one another, and that reminder keeps us going with hope and faith through all the ups and downs of married life. Most importantly, we made this commitment in faith, in front of all, to be held accountable and reflected upon for all our lives."

"When we did our very brief practice run the day before, it was overcast, so we were afraid of the lighting, but it came out BEAUTIFULLY. Linda Van Der Wyk was absolutely wonderful and helpful to work with in the booking and answered all my questions. Really gave a sense of solemnity and grandeur to our ceremony - the most important part!"

"Consistently voted the best seafood restaurant in town, Brophy's isn't a fine dining place, so go elsewhere if this is what you're looking for. That said, it is a very popular locals' place because all their fish is fresh and caught by local fishermen, and the atmosphere is fun and lively. Be prepared to wait if you want to go for dinner, as they do not accept reservations, and this restaurant is packed every night of the week."

"This is an Argentinian family-owned fine dining restaurant that has been in Santa Barbara for over 25 years. It features a mix Latin American and Italian cuisine as well as a small list of wines from all over the world. The courtyard is lovely at night, lit by small string lights, with tile floors and a fountain in the centre. On Wednesday nights a tango quartet from Argentina plays traditional tango music. The milonga (dancing) begins at 7pm and ends at 10:30pm. Dancers can dance in the centre of the courtyard or move into the indoor dining room later at night. Visiting dancers from Argentina also make an appearance there. Entertainment on other nights features Latin folk music or Latin jazz. Visit their website for more details on entertainment, or just stop by for their yummy food!"

"Lovely restaurant, beautiful traditional décor, and wonderful food. Come HUNGRY, as they serve you a 5 or 7 course meal. Reservations are recommended, especially for weekends, and be prepared to sit for at least 2 hours. This is a little hidden gem, and the square in which it is located may be hard to find. It is well worth the trouble, however, and you will be entertained with professional belly dancers while dining!"

"I suppose you can call this a typical tourist trap. The food is decent, somewhat pricey, but you really pay for the views, so if you're looking for dining on the water, this is still the best view."

Stonehouse Restaurant

Santa Barbara, CA, United States

"Enjoy beautiful views, wonderful food made with quality ingredients, and excellent service at The Stonehouse Restaurant at the San Ysidro Ranch. The property is tucked away in Montecito, the affluent suburban hillside of Santa Barbara, on a beautiful historic property with lush landscape and a rustic, old-world feel. The indoor dining area is cozy, with hardwood floors, paintings on the walls, high wood-beamed ceilings, and a crackling fireplace. Windows overlook the creek, and glass doors open up onto a stone patio, also with a fireplace and a lovely view of the property and a glimpse of the sea in the distance. Many of the ingredients are grown right on property in the gardens, and fresh meat and seafood (as local as possible) is featured year-round, such as the spiny lobster in the winter or white seabass caught right in th channel. Executive Chef John Trotta is extremely talented and cares very much about the guests. Dinners are meant to be coursed, but everything is always perfectly balanced in presentation, flavours, and proportions. Finish with either traditional, hearty, comforting desserts, such as the seasonal fruit cobbler, or original creations from the talented pastry department, such as a light and fluffy triple-layer fresh fruit tropical mousse, the Valrhona chocolate organge cheesecake, a Belgian chocolate pot de crème, or a selection of house-made gelati and sorbetti."
