Welcome Dinner
Friday, July 26, 2019

Join us for margaritas, dinner, and good company! All guests are invited to join us for the Welcome Dinner.

Time: 6pm

Attire: Summer Cocktail - We know wedding jargon can often be confusing, but we've got you covered. For men, please wear a suit or a blazer and dress trousers; ties are optional. For ladies, please wear a nice cocktail dress. If you need some inspiration, I saved a few dresses on Rent The Runway that would fit the attire. Additionally, because the venue is outside, we recommend block heels.

Location

Santa Barbara Historical Museum

136 E De La Guerra Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101

Our Wedding
Saturday, July 27, 2019
Ceremony and Reception

Kestrel Park

5200 Armour Ranch Road, Santa Ynez, CA 93460

Ceremony begins at 4pm

Kestrel Park is an 100 acre property encompassing a 19th century style English country house, gardens, and stables. The venue is located in the Santa Ynez Valley, 30 minutes from Santa Barbara and close to the town of Santa Ynez.

Transportation

Transportation will be provided from the hotels where we have room blocks to Kestrel Park and back again at the conclusion of the wedding reception, as there is no parking available on site. If you choose to join us for the after party, we will have shuttles to the after party and back to the hotels.

Please make sure to be in the hotel lobby by 2:45pm, as the shuttles will be leaving promptly at 3:00pm.

If you are staying at an Airbnb or VRBO, please Lyft or Uber to one of the room block hotels to get on a shuttle.

Attire: Black Tie

The weather can be quite warm (80-90 degrees) during the ceremony and cool during the reception (65 degrees). Dinner will be under the stars.

Women: I've pinned a few dresses at Rent The Runway to help spark some ideas for the big day! Please bring a shawl to ensure you are comfortable during the reception. The venue is completely outside and throughout the evening we will be moving through grass and stones, so block heels are recommended. For the die-hard stiletto wearers, we will provide heel protectors.

Men: tuxedos, please! If you need to rent a tuxedo, below are a few options:

The Black Tux - Select your tux online and have it delivered two weeks in advance.

Men's Wearhouse - 719 State St, Santa Barbara, CA 93101 - You can get fitted for a tux at any Men's Warehouse nationwide and pick it up in Santa Barbara. The Men's Warehouse in Santa Barbara is only a 6 minute walk from the Welcome Dinner at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum. We will have a "coat check" for you tuxes at the Welcome Dinner.
