Santa Barbara Beach Chic 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Santa Barbara Beach Chic

As a wedding planner, these are the kinds of clients that we live for. Carolyn and Dan were a dream to work with and their pictures say it all! They were the most adorable couple and they had SO MUCH FUN on their wedding day! Carolyn wanted her wedding day to reflect the beach feel of Santa Barbara but not to have a cheesy stereotypical “beachy flare” She chose a fabulous oceanfront location of the Four Seasons Santa Barbara, and allowed me to take control of the decor! I worked alongside with Camilla Svensson Burns who provided the fabulous floral arrangements to achieve this light and airy look in the La Pacifica Ballroom. BB Photography always does an amazing job capturing our clients and their joy really shows throughout all of his images.

West Coast Music packed the dance floor all night- and when the father of the bride couldn’t find space to dance there, he made his own dance floor between the tables!!

Melinda and John’s Wedding 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Melinda and John’s Wedding

We were blessed with the most gorgeous day in Santa Barbara this past weekend to celebrate Melinda and John’s Wedding at the Four Seasons Biltmore. Jerry from SR Hogue did a fabulous job with the decor on this event. The classic neutral’s and ivory’s went beautifully in the La Pacifica Ballroom, which can be a tough room to work with. In order to add variety to the ballroom, we suggest using round and square tables, along with tall and short floral arrangements. This adds depth to the room, and also makes each table feel special in its own way. Once the ballroom was completely set, I got a chance to show the Bride the ballroom that she had been planning and dreaming of for months. She was completely taken back and told me “It was like a dream!!” The reception went flawlessly and I couldn’t have been happier with the end result.  The bride and groom danced all night and even went into overtime with their fabulous band from West Coast Music– Now that is the sign of a great party!!

Junebug Weddings- Features our wedding for Shira and Adam

We are so excited to have this beautiful wedding featured on Junebug Weddings. We did this wedding last May at a private estate in Hope Ranch. This estate is now an exclusive site to La Fete If you are interested please email us.

Here is what the parents of the bride sent to us after the wedding:

“Our daughter and son-in-law were living on the opposite coast, and yet Colette was able to include them in as much of the planning as they desired. She calmly, professionally and comfortingly handled every minute detail of our daughter’s wedding weekend. There wasn’t a question we asked that she could not answer on the spot or after doing research. It still astounds us at how flawlessly wonderful everything turned out.
For us, equally important, it was the first time we had every been able to totally relax and truly enjoy an event we hosted at our own home!
We cannot thank you enough, Colette and Kaitlin, for a very special family memory. “
Jeff and Nancy~
