Seaside Catamaran Rehearsal Dinner in Santa Barbara
We’re reliving this seaside catamaran rehearsal dinner in Santa Barbara today! These pics have us dreaming of the cool ocean breeze, the bright pops of floral and the long-awaited togetherness of this sweet couple and their loved ones.
Hayley and Kyle’s incredible wedding weekend getaway kicked off (after many delays due to COVID) with a delightful catamaran excursion along the gorgeous Santa Barbara coastline. This intimate event served as the rehearsal dinner for their immediate family and wedding party.
Guests arrived to the Santa Barbara Marina and boarded the catamaran with a celebratory glass of bubbly. A custom designed H&K nautical flag was flown high above the catamaran during the voyage, which then became the guest book for the entire wedding weekend.
Guests enjoyed a colorful and delicious Mexican-style feast and toasted with delicious margaritas served in festive vintage goblets the color of the sea. Vibrant floral arrangements gave a cheerful and happy pop to the space against the big, beautiful ocean blue backdrop.
Several heartfelt toasts, overdue hugs, and many cheers were shared now that this highly anticipated weekend had finally arrived. This fun seaside catamaran rehearsal dinner set the tone for the joy and excitement to come throughout the entire weekend.
Upon returning to the marina, the couple and guests were whisked away to Hotel Californian for a festive rooftop welcome party with a larger group of friends and family. “Here comes the sun + sea!” custom canvas welcome bags were distributed to guests and included monogrammed baseball caps, sweet and salty treats, and the ever so appropriate hangover kit.
