Kate + Matt  wanted to make sure their day was filled with what was true to them. Emphasizing this couple's love of farmers markets and the local food scene,  amazing caterers were chosen from Autostrada Catering, Slate Catering Co. and The Wild Posy. It's safe to say all the guests were well taken care of. At this Ocean View Ranch wedding the organic bohemian design of the day was brought together by Wild Heart Events, and captured by Anna Delores. These Wedding Standard Artists have done it again! 

Girl meets boy! 
Matt got a parking ticket the night of our first date, he didn't think the date would last that long! On our third date- at the beach we knew it was the real deal. We moved into together in a little cottage in Manhattan Beach 6 months later. The next year we decided to move up to Santa Barbara where we ended up getting married. Matt proposed my birthday weekend at the Belmond El Encanto


Wedding Planning Inspiration
We knew we wanted a relaxing, intimate vibe. We both love farmers markets and the local food scene. Autostrada- now Bettina Pizzeria, Slate Catering and The Wild Posy were perfect caterers for our day! We also included our favorite cocktails from Santa Barbara (The Crush from Honor Bar and the Paloma from the Lark). Jaime and Erika from Wild Heart Events really brought our vision to life with the comfy lounge and beautiful farmhouse tables.
