HeartStone Ranch Wedding Showcases Local Tastes, Sights and Sounds

From ByCherry Photography:

What happens when two people who are in the food and hospitality industry get married? Magic. Lynee Gonsalves, business manager of Pure Joy Catering, and Brad Bennett, owner of Pacific Pickle Works, decided to design a wedding that would showcase their local friends, favorite food and beverage makers, designers and entertainers from around the area.

The evening featured locally designed and created cocktails made with locally distilled spirits and cocktail shrubs, beer from the local home brewers M. Special Brew Co. A 16-foot grazing table from Slate Catering featuring local makers such as Brad’s own Pacific Pickle Works, on-site espresso drinks from Welcome Coffee Cart featuring locally roasted coffee by Dart Coffee, farmers market-sourced produce and Santa Barbara Channel-caught seafood prepared by Pure Joy Catering. The cake was made by Chooket and dessert featured a handmade crepe station where Pure Joy Catering was making fresh crepes on site and serving them up with McConnell’s ice cream and a variety of other fillings.

It wasn’t just the food and beverages that were local. They also incorporated locally designed and created florals from Terra Malia Designs, and much more all set in a beautiful Carpinteria ranch and captured by local photographer ByCherry Photography.

The result was a magical evening with locals uniting over communal-style tables, enjoying farmers market fresh food and beautiful décor , set to the music of two different local bands to create the mood for a perfect evening!

This wedding was also chosen to be featured in the Edible Santa Barbara magazine which you can read more about HERE
