The Granada Theater, built in 1924 and remarkably restored in 2008, is 13,000 sq. feet of rich velvet floors and cushioned chairs. It features the sparkling, original chandelier located in the main lobby underneath a charming ceiling painted with small decorative flowers and diamonds.
The spectacular theater also features an elaborately crafted metal ceiling ornament that hangs in the middle of a stunning painted ceiling. This immaculate ceiling only highlights the luxuriousness of the theater with its plush seats and gold covered walls.
The front of the theater also displays a marquee that is perfect for placing your own customized message. This creates an adorable backdrop for photographs displaying your unique venue.
The Granada Theater is a large, luxurious venue with the potential to fit large parties as well as include personalized messages and decorative touches. A beautiful space, the Granada Theater is an amazing historical location in Santa Barbara that holds old-time charm as well as 1920’s glamour.

We love this new design idea for unique invitations sent to us by Tracy of Lazaro Press. It’s sort of a sophisticated twist on carving your names into the side of a tree – and a little friendlier. These beautiful wooden cards are custom designed and then laser cut on individual slices of fresh, fragrant wood. This clever technique can be used for invitations, menus, save-the -date cards or anything else you can imagine.
It was so great to see this lovely couple tying the knot in Santa Barbara’s Wine Country area of Los Olivos. With them, they brought a little bit of Western wear, punches of coral to compliment the blush and neutrals, a romantic setting and a whole lotta love among the vines!
