For their wedding, this Midwest bride and groom rented a house with spectacular views up in the mountains above Montecito for the ultimate in privacy and seclusion. There, Merryl Brown Events created a masterpiece of old world charm and simple elegance, letting the views dominate the visuals. Merryl Brown Events is often called upon to create perfect little "jewel box" weddings for couples that want to have an elegant and memorable wedding but are looking for a more intimate experience. This is an area in which they excel! When paired with the amazing photographer Toby Tucker, it is a match made in heaven! The bride chose La Tavola embroidered overlays over creamy Peau de Soie underlays, with several dozen candles, masses of garden roses and peonies and crystal vases throughout. On the bar were formal, antique silver trays with old silver accoutrements, along with good wines, Riedel stemware, plentiful cocktails and artisanal hors d'oeuvres. The chef, Erika Heinemann of Savvy Wine Food, created a menu of sublime mini plates for the guests over the course of the evening, and they were followed by a selection of individual wedding cakes by Robin Loves Cake on antique, sterling-footed candy dishes. Floral design and vases were produced in-house by Merryl Brown Events. Incredible views and incredible house paired with a loving and gorgeous couple. What more could you ask for?
