We had such fun at our wedding! Santa Barbara us a wonderful place to get married. We had so many out-of-state guests who just loved all of the options with the mission, ocean, zoo and wine tasting. We used wedding mapper to include as inserts in our invitations. Made one map for the wedding party with ceremony and reception and rehearsal dinner locations. Everyone else got the map with just ceremony & reception locations. We'd highly recommend using it!
Albert gonzales was our DJ. He was ok. He did a weird thing where he pretended to be telepathic, but failed in his guesses, which turned out to be weird, not funny. And he yelled at one of my bridesmaids to leave him alone and let him do his job, which I was incredibly embarassed about, especially since she was right- at one point we had an entire dance floor with nobody dancing. Bit for the most part, he played pretty good music- and kept guests dancing.
Of everything, thus was where I wanted to be most careful in spending our money to mske sure we got quality. And we did. Willa worked so hard before the ceremony, during and at the reception. And we love love love the results so much. She worked wonders with a wedding party of 14 and the wind from you-know-where. Amazingly, she made it look like a dream. I couldn't be more pleased!!
Absolutely gorgeous venue for our wedding. Incredibly windy, so we didn't use our unity candles, but it was worth it. Alexandra Forbes was our coordinator at SBCC and she was great. She recommended the Winslow Maxwell and we were so happy with it. All of our guests loved our venue!! You could see the ocean on one side and mountains on the other. Really spectacular views.
Lindy was our coordinator and this girl is worth her weight in gold. She took care of everything and I didn't gave to worry about anything. We even hired her to coordinate the ceremony at a different location and she even made that go incredibly smoothly. We chose the cabrillo room for the reception (upstairs) which had great ocean views.
