El Encanto Hotel – Gorgeous Riviera Venue

El Encanto Hotel is one of Santa Barbara newest additions – an incredible venue on the gorgeous Santa Barbara Riviera overlooking all of Santa Barbara and the ocean beyond.  The sunsets are unreal from this hilltop estate!  Last night El Encanto treated some of the Santa Barbara Wedding Industry’s top vendors to a special “Vendor Appreciation Event” where we experienced absolutely wonderful treatment from the staff while nibbling on scrumptious appetizers and sipping on delicious wines.

The hotel actually has been a long-time Santa Barbara destination, however just last year it re-opened its doors after being closed for seven years, with a revived look and vibe, while keeping to its traditional feel.  It is now one of the top wedding venues in Santa Barbara with its unbeatable location, friendly staff, and incredible cuisine.

It’s always a blast when all of us ‘wedding industry vendors’ get together since we essentually speak the same language and can gab for hours about our weddings and clients.  Since we all run our own businesses, we truly understand one another, and working together as a community of vendors and friends is so rewarding.  So many great friends were there – Colette and Kaitlin of La Fete Weddings, Jill from La Fleur Wedding and Events, Nico of NLC Productions, DJ Scott of Scott Topper Productions, Sophie from Amazing Days Events, Armando and Shauna of Alegria by Design and wonderful photographers Melissa MusgroveBaron StaffordBrandon and EricaMichael and Anna Costa, as well as so many other great vendors.  Special Thank You to Kathleen Murphy at El Encanto for hosting this very special event.
