We are still recovering from hosting an exuberant and sizable engagement party for our dear friends' son and his soon to be lovely bride. This wonderful couple is amazing! Both are power professionals yet the most loving and endearing people. Accomplished adults with outstanding educations and professions, first and only engagement and forthcoming marriage! They met through serendipitous circumstances and they are very much each other's soul mates! In this fast world of in-and-out relationships it is just wonderful to meet a couple like this. My husband and I just celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary and the groom to be's parent their fortieth! Whomever said that true love and romance are dead hasn't met us!

Santa Barbara is a wonderful venue for weddings, large and small, extravagant or modest; all offering the romance of gorgeous scenery, wonderful predictable climate and locations from no cost to over the top!

Our back yard was the scene of this wonderful casual event! We planned to seat 80 people with complete sit-down service; although the dinner was buffet style. The Margarita Fountain served iced margaritas continuously, wine and beer bar; and a five-piece band offered music for lots of dancing late into a magical evening. The weather was so pleasant that the out-door fireplace was not put into service, nor were the portable heaters used.

Weddings/parties can be held at any one of our many parks, public gardens, the beaches, the sunken gardens at the Court House, the Rose Garden at the Mission and many many more locations for the fee of a Park permit! The beautiful Santa Barbara Zoological Gardens does require an entrance fee. Many a wedding, birthday parties and special events are held there.
