Granada Theater Wedding

Granada Theater Wedding / Sara & Ross

Wedding Venue: Santa Barbara Courthouse
Reception Venue: Granada Theater

Update: This wedding just got picked up by Style me Pretty!  Sweet!

When Sara and Ross came to our first meeting they came prepared – Sara brought an inspiration board filled with lush reds, spring greens, and opulent theater seats.  For months we looked forward to their wedding and it’s rich vivid color.  As a former theater nerd I loved the idea of shooting at a theater and the final event, coordinated by Joy Proctor of Joy de Vivre was even better than the inspiration.  How often do you get an entire theater to yourself?!  Sara and Ross were married at the Santa Barbara Courthouse and held their reception at the Granada TheaterSanta Barbara has always been one of our favorite places to shoot!

Sara and Ross opted for a first look which I think is such a great idea for couples who want a relaxed flow to their day.  The first look at the courthouse gave these two a few minutes of calm and reflection before they took their vows.  After the ceremony we headed to the Granada where we got to play around on the stage and in the seats before heading up to a full vegetarian dinner by Ariel Catering.  Kelly Kaufman of Florette put together the delicate centerpieces which gave the room a real shine.  And check out the cake!  Ian jokes that I’m a cake connoisseur because I loooove the stuff and end up trying lots of wedding cakes.  Sara and Ross’s cake was both stunning to look at and delicious to eat – a combo that can’t go wrong in my book.  Sara and Ross, thanks for sharing your day with us! -Tanya
