When It’s Time to Get Real About Your Wedding Venue & Budget. Top 3 Mistakes Clients Make

Blog, Event Planning Advice / 10.04.20142 comments

kld collage4It’s time for a reality check.  After hundreds of  weddings, I see this almost all the time:  couples come to our world-renowned Santa Barbara including  its beautiful wine country and see the epic resorts, private estates, ranches, beaches and wineries and they are smitten.  This is one of the reasons I’m so proud to call this place home and specialize in weddings in America’s Riviera.  The location options afford a unique wedding experience for the wedding couple that they – and their guests- will remember for a lifetime.

Santa Barbara Wine Country Wedding at Lincourt | Becky & Imran
