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!


Backyard Bridal Shower 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Backyard Bridal Shower

There is nothing better than throwing a party in your backyard, especially when it is your own daughters bridal shower! A few weeks ago 22 close friends gathered together to celebrate Kaitlin’s upcoming wedding and it was such a lovely and memorable occasion!

The absolutely stunning table linens and napkins were provided by La Tavola Fine Linens and Cody Floral Design created the fabulous flower arrangements that added the perfect pop of color to each table top! All of the guests were told to wear a summer white dress which made the photos by Stephanie Hogue turn out gorgeous!

We munched on this incredible spread of unique cheeses, crackers, fresh fruit and hummus (some of Kaitlin’s favorite items) and sipped on a fresh lemonade cocktail. For dessert, Colette & Melissa made the most beautiful variety of fresh fruit tarts from scratch, they were absolutely delicious!

Kaitlin’s soon to be husband stopped by the backyard bridal shower to say hello to everyone!

Very special thank you to these lovely women who helped to make this day so perfect! You are each so incredibly talented and truly are the best friends to get any job done! Love you all so so much!

Buttons and Bows Baby Shower 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Buttons and Bows Baby Shower

We always get excited when there is a reason to celebrate, and when we get to throw a party that we can attend! When Colette found out that her son and daughter-in-law are expecting a baby girl, the first thing we thought was…. BABY SHOWER! We had so much fun putting together this event, and we thought through every little detail and came up with the theme Buttons and Bows Baby Shower, perfect for a little girl! We had a close group of about 11 women who came to share their motherly advice and shower the new mommy-to-be in gifts. Congratulations, Trish we could not be more thrilled!
A very special thank you goes to Melissa Musgrove Photography, La Fond Catering, La Tavola Linens, and Town and Country Event Rentals. Without you, none of this would have been possible and words can not express how much your thoughtfulness and generosity is appreciated, we love you guys!
