Santa Barbara Courthouse Mural Room Wedding

The Mural Room in the Santa Barbara courthouse is one of my favorite wedding venues in town. Although weather in Santa Barbara is usually pleasant enough for outdoor ceremony practically year-round, one has no control over things like airplanes flying overhead or a freight train blasting past. And there’s nothing like having a herd of Harleys passing by to drown out your wedding vows.

In the Mural Room one simply has to shut the huge leather-embossed wooden doors to have a private and peaceful space elegantly furnished and decorated with brilliantly colored murals on the stucco walls. The beautiful terra cotta floor tiles make for great acoustics so the harp sounds fantastic even without amplification.

Wedding at Gainey Vineyards

Gainey Vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley is a lovely setting for a summer wedding. Late afternoon sunlight slants over the rolling hills and creates perfect lighting for wedding photos.

Wedding at Hartley Botanical Garden

The Hartley Botanical garden is out on the middle of a desert but once you arrive it’s a cool green oasis - perfect for an August wedding.

King David Plays Harp, Too

I play frequently at a local Episcopal church for Sunday morning services. Last Sunday I noticed for the first time that I wasn’t alone - I had a duet partner in the stained glass window directly behind me.
