Recently I was invited to collaborate on a venue showcase for an up and coming wedding venue in Los Olivos appropriately named Wine Trail Weddings. This sprawling private estate sits at the head of the Los Olivos wine trail, and is one spectacular property that is a must see if you are on the hunt for an outdoor wedding venue in Santa Barbara wine country.
This gorgeous property is home to owners Chris and Carisa Blasman who also own and operate local winery Four Brothers Wine Co., located on Grand Ave., in the heart of downtown Los Olivos. And when it comes to weddings and providing you with the ultimate guest experience, it's clear that this is the perfect pairing.
The lush green gardens, lawns, and trees transport you to a private oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the quaint little town just down the road. Quiet, calm and tranquility is what draws you in to this scenic place. When it comes to your wedding, the options are almost endless. You have many choices when it comes to setting up your ceremony space. Looking around it's easy to imagine the wedding of your dreams.
Like a blank canvas you are able to design your wedding however you like and make it your own. No two weddings are alike here. Once you see the space yourself you are able to envision your perfect wedding day. On-site Event Manager, Jenifer Sanregret will give you the full tour which includes an intimate casita next to the main house which can be used as a bridal suite for the happy couple and their wedding party, perfect for getting ready on the big day.
Honestly, I couldn't have been more excited to not only participate but take the lead on the planning and concept, bringing the event to life. With only 5 weeks to pull it off, I got to work right away contacting local vendors, meeting with the venue owner to conduct site visits, design the layout and manage all the important logistics that needed to come together in a short amount of time. Stressful? Yes! But also so much fun, and working under tight deadlines is actually something I thrive on!
In the end everything came together perfectly. I was incredibly proud of what I had accomplished, and equally proud to be part of such an amazing event and wedding community here in Santa Barbara County. Everyone who joined in was as excited as I was to be involved in this event and really helped make it the success that it was.
All those amazing people and businesses are all listed at the end of this post. Please check them out and consider hiring them for your next event because they are absolutely incredible at what they do and go above and beyond for their clients. We are so lucky to have them here in this community.
This venue is truly one of a kind and the photos are not enough to tell the whole story. To really see what this venue has to offer we highly suggest scheduling a tour.
Thank you SO MUCH to all the participating wedding vendors who donated their time and talent for this fun event! We appreciate all that you did to help make this event a success!
