We have done some great work at a venue in Santa Barbara called Villa and Vine and we wanted to show off some examples of our work as well as share some insights about the best wedding pros to work with and tips at Villa and Vine. Villa and Vine is great venue if you are looking to continue the party in the Santa Barbara night life on State St not to mention the great look of the venue. The look of the venue has a mediterranean vibe. The courtyard roof can be opened up so you can be under the sky or closed if it’s a tough day outside.
More often than not cocktails will be in the Arlington room which is the back room of the venue. Guests typically will enter in through the side door. Occasionaly ceremonies are held in the courtyard if you didn’t elect to do it some place else. Dinner and toasts take place in the courtyard as that’s the largest space for dinning. Dancing is moved back to the Arlington room to comply with noise ordnance of the city of Santa Barbara.
This is one of our favorite venues although it does have some unique challenges for sound. It does require having two complete setups if you want introductions and toasts in the courtyard and than dancing in the Arlington room. Space can also be tight for larger wedding such as this one so we used special speaker stands to have a smaller footprint in the courtyard to give guests the maximum amount of space. Two setups require a little more setup time plus if we have to be at another location we need to be their even earlier to make sure we are good to go.
