Chic + Modern Santa Barbara Wedding

Although Jessica and Mike now live in New York, Santa Barbara is Jessica’s hometown and she couldn’t wait to show the area to their guests. They decided to forego the traditional rehearsal dinner, but instead planned a series of events to highlight the things they love most—a family dinner at a local Greek restaurant, a barbeque in the hills, and a wedding at the Montecito Country Club, which captures the very essence of Santa Barbara with Spanish architecture and sweeping views of the beach, mountains, and picturesque town below. Their traditional Jewish ceremony gave way to a fun celebration featuring the MGA Band. And we just love the personal touches, such as tying in their Irish heritage and Jewish traditions by breaking a glass printed with shamrocks!
