Jennifer and Remington’s Winery Wedding Glow at Firestone

Blog, Real Weddings / 02.13.20160 comments

imageIf you believe in “signs”, then you you will believe that this couple was meant to be when you read the “signs” that came out on their wedding day.  Jennifer and Remington met at age 7 and went separate ways for awhile and then became re-acquainted and the rest, as they say, is history (that is the simplified version).  The day of their wedding, Mother Nature put on a spectacular show:  from a rainbow right over them after their ceremony, to a sunset that was on fire, it appeared that forces beyond Earth were in tune with celebrating their nuptials.

After the ceremony on the Mesa (where the bride arrived in a vintage/classic car to make her entrance down the aisle), guests adjourned to the patio in front of the Firestone Tasting Room, where they mixed and mingled , signed “wishes for the Mr. and Mrs.”, made “Bucket List Recommendations” for the newlyweds, and Jennifer’s father sang a song that he had written just for the two of them.  To say this wedding was filled with joy and tears from the soul and love expressed by everyone is an understatement.

Dinners in the Barrel Room at Firestone Winery are epic, to say the least.  When it was time for the Grand Reveal (a little something I like to do when presenting the Barrel Room to guests for the first time as they are welcomed to dinner), guests moved into the long, amber-glowing up-lit Barrel Room to find their seat and enjoy a sumptuous feast.  The Courtyard outside provided after-dinner dancing under the stars to one of Southern California’s hottest bands, and special decorative touches like the lit-up “LOVE” sign oversaw the dessert buffet, while hundreds of lanterns provided glow everywhere.

The invitation said simply to come for

One of the questions I am frequently asked when I am interviewed for publications is how I decribe this incredible region we call Santa Barbara’s wine country, the Santa Ynez Valley.  I am proud to say my response description has been quoted and is now associated with this area:  “rustic elegance” and “rustic sophistication”.   A Santa Barbara wine country wedding includes winery weddings, ranch weddings, private estate weddings and so much more.  But not every venue is created equal.  Just because a venue says it does weddings or is pretty doesn’t mean that they are truly capable of handling everything an event brings with it.  And further, does not mean the staff is proficient on the incredible details and customer service involved in making sure the wedding goes off seamlessly. Today, however, I would like to highlight one of my most popular wedding venues in Santa Barbara’s wine country:
