Rustic Barn Rehearsal Dinner 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Rustic Barn Rehearsal Dinner

When we began planning the wedding for our clients Alex and Alyssa, we started by touring their property and listening to their vision. Then we ventured down into the barn… It was truly love at first site, and we knew we needed to throw Alex and Alyssa a rustic barn themed rehearsal dinner. Some spaces just speak to you, and this was one of them. Complete with 3 giant wrought iron chandeliers running down the center of the barn and stunning corrals & fixtures- we were dying to dress this place up! We introduced the clients to these darling distressed farm tables at Town & Country then chose a fun “bandana” patterned table runner from La Tavola. And to top it all off- Mindy Rice added so much cheer to the tables with her eclectic mix of sunflowers & rusty lanterns.

Each place setting was finished with a mini cowbell tied around the napkin (which the guests could ring throughout the evening) and these fabulous copper handled flatware from Town & Country Event Rentals!

This rustic barn rehearsal dinner was filled with toasts, laughter & tears and once the party had ended we shuttled these lucky guests down to The Wine Cask for a delightful welcome party with the rest of the invited wedding guests! A special thank your to our incredible team who made this night possible: Duo Catering, Images by Lighting, Town & Country Event Rentals, Mindy Rice, La Tavola Fine Linens, and photos by the talented Yvette Roman Photography.

The Perfect Post Wedding Brunch 150 150 La Fete Weddings

The Perfect Post Wedding Brunch

The Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club is the perfect post wedding brunch location. The majority of our clients are choosing to host multiple events for their wedding throughout the weekend. Typically we begin with a welcome party, then the rehearsal dinner, the wedding day, followed by a Sunday brunch to send off the bride and groom. When our clients decide to host a full weekend of wedding activities we encourage them to show their guests the different areas that Santa Barbara has to offer. We love doing a rehearsal dinner at a local down town restaurant near historic State Street, and a welcome party at a hotel or somewhere with an ocean view! When it comes to the post wedding brunch, we like to suggest doing something unique…  and a polo brunch is so much fun for all ages! Hosting a brunch or private party here offers a new experience for your guests and is something most people have never done before. By creating a beautiful atmosphere and bringing in some delicious catered food (for this event we used Roomforty Catering) your guests are free to relax, drink a mimosa and enjoy the polo match. A special thank you to Willa Kveta for the gorgeous images of this event and to Jackson Durham for creating the stunning flower arrangements!
