Behind the Scenes: Summer Wedding

A couple of weeks ago we had our fist major wedding of the 2010 summer season. The wedding was held at a private ranch North of Santa Barbara along the coast. Events by Philippe had the honor of coordinating all elements of the wedding production. We had a fantastic group of local vendors that helped us create both a beautiful ceremony and a stunning tented reception area. We also had an unbelievable group of servers, and kitchen staff as part of our catering service. Please enjoy these photos that we took to document some of the work involved before the start of the wedding.
