Recently I had the opportunity to coordinate a styled photo shoot at the beautiful Santa Barbara Maritime Museum. The inspiration behind the shoot was to showcase the versatility of the venue and the various locations outside of the museum that can be rented for a variety of special events which include the spacious, yet intimate patio and the upper level deck (Crow's Nest) on the museum's 4th floor which overlooks the beautiful Santa Barbara Harbor!
Collaborating with me on the styling for this shoot was a very talented team of wedding and event professionals in the Santa Barbara/Ventura area listed below. Our vision for the shoot was to showcase a stylish dinner and cozy lounge on the patio, fun and tasty dessert bar, and cocktails on the deck at sunset. Fun, elegant and romantic with a touch of ocean breeze!
The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum is located in the Santa Barbara Harbor and is a beautiful and versatile space to host a variety of social events, corporate events and weddings. The beach front venue is surrounded by restaurants and offers many activities for you and your guests to enjoy right on the water such as kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing as well as sunset cruises and whale watching.
The museum can accommodate 150 for a seated dinner and 400 for a reception. For more information and pricing for event and wedding packages, please visit www.santabarbaraoceanviewweddings.com.
A special thank you to all the event professionals listed below for lending their time and creative talents to this photo shoot!
