by The Wedding Standard




The Wedding Standard is now in beautiful Santa Barbara! To celebrate the launching of our very first magazine we partnered with Santa Barbara designers from Wild Heart Events to feature an array of amazing Santa Barbara based wedding vendors. This party was held at the amazing new Santa Barbara wedding venue, Ocean View Ranch, overlooking the hills and beach of Carpinteria. Guests enjoyed the beauty of the modern open barn and intimate property while sipping cocktails, eating delicious appetizers and previewing the new magazine. All of the wonderful photos were captured by wedding photographer, Kiel Rucker

The gorgeous tables were designed by Wild Heart Events and brought together with rentals from Party Pleasers, napkins and runners from Blush Fine Linens, Slate Catering cheese boards, name placement cards by Sophia Loves Letters, florals from Idlewild Floral, and hanging lights by Spark Creative Events. 

Can you describe your vision for this shoot?

From the designers of Wild Heart Events: "The vision for this shoot was to show off the vibe of the property, which we felt was a modern barn with so much natural beauty around it. We wanted to implement simple details but still introduce our bohemian style."


Describe 1 or 2 details that you were the most excited about.

"Creating The Wedding Standard magazine wall was one we had the most fun with and were excited about. We didn't want people to just grab a magazine off of a table but rather interact with the display. We incorporated the copper theme by having copper baskets, hangers, and shelves. We also loved how it was clean and really highlighted the beauty of the magazine and the fabulous vendors involved."

The beautiful calligraphy was done by Sophia Loves Letters and all of the amazing cheese boards were wonderfully created by Slate Catering.

As one who contributed to the design what was your inspiration?

"We took a lot of inspiration from home images and wanted to create a vibe that felt familiar and warm. We loved the modern vibe and wanted that to be implemented throughout the event. We have seen a lot of great barn set up's but wanted this shoot to not be your typical barn style."  

Jump on the School Bus provided the fun transportation!

Delicious cold pressed Juice Ranch cocktails made by the wonderful bar service Liquid Cult and served out of the darling vintage white Trailer Trish.

Live music throughout the evening was provided by The Get Down Boys and lounge rentals from Party Pleasers. 

Authentic, homemade, and dairy-free gelato by Tondi Gelato was definitely the hit of the party!

Amazing wood-fired pizza by Santa Barbara Wood-fire Catering.

Wild Heart Events did an amazing job planning and designing the event to make it a special launch for the Santa Barbara Wedding Standard magazine release! It was night to remember!
