Tucked away off Highway 246 and minutes from Solvang and Buellton, CA is a gorgeous sprawling family owned event space that is a total hidden gem and a must see for anyone wanting a private outdoor wedding in the heart of wine country along the beautiful central coast of California. We recently had the pleasure of coordinating Cris and Allison's wedding at La Arboleda and the pictures speak for themselves. This venue has something for everyone.
This rustic romantic getaway includes two separate suites for the couple to get ready in, a built in bar and kitchen, covered dining and dance area, built in stage, paved walkways, lush gardens and an abundance of natural surroundings. For this wedding the bride chose white and pink floral arrangements created by Bella Florist for her bouquet and centerpieces which complimented the natural beauty of the space perfecly.
Keeping with the natural and rustic look, the family style tables were decorated with a neutral runner across the center topped with gold votives and gorgeous blooms in wooden containers. Wine barrels were spread throughout the venue and used as cocktail tables. Guests were treated to a lovely meal starting with antipasto during cocktail hour followed by authentic Italian wood-fired pizzas made on-site and fresh green salads catered by Santa Barbara restaurant Bettina Pizzeria.
Dessert included an lavish assortment of delicious mini cupcakes in a variety of flavors from another Santa Barbara favorite, Enjoy Cupcakes. The Bride, Groom and their guests danced to music provided by the ever popular and always entertaining DJ Zeke who also provided the photo booth for an extra bit of fun.
This was one unforgettable day that we were so thankful to have been part of. Congrats to the happy couple!
This wedding was simply stunning! Thank you to the amazing team who helped make their day so special!
