VLD is a Santa Barbara, California based husband and wife team and dedicated event planning and design studio specializing in celebrations with style and substance. In the past decade, we've produced over 200 weddings and events in destinations as far away as France and as remote as the middle of the wilderness; most of them outdoors at estates or private residences, and every single one of them an epic celebration in their own right.
We'll get right to it. We started this company because we believe in creating experiences that are personal and meaningful. We've all been to events that are beautiful but boring, and we think that is such a mistake. There's really only one time in your life everyone you love will be in one room and, as a result, we want to do it justice. People tell us our events are different, and that is the ultimate compliment. Whether it's a simple gathering or a "luxury" production, no matter the size or scope, our goal is intimacy, authenticity, and warmth.
Our approach? FUN! Great music. Inspiring ambiance. Innovative food and beverage with great presentation. Ridiculously good service (both from us and from other vendors). Quality vs quantity. When it comes to the event planning process, we take on a limited number of clients each year, allowing us to give the attention you and your event deserve. When you work with VLD, you're working with a team that will stand behind you, protecting you and guiding you as you make your way through what will inevitably become one of the most special experiences of your lives. We are more than just event planners, we're your advocates, confidantes, financial advisors, project managers, strategists, designers, friends, and your storytellers. We will take your vision and make it the best it can possibly be. We will maximize your budget and give you confidence that you're spending your money properly. We are committed not only to ensuring an event is successful, but also that the entire year long process leading up to it is fun and enjoyable for you, too. With twenty years of combined experience in event planning and design, and almost forty in hospitality (although yikes - that makes us seem old!), we know how to handle just about anything that is thrown our way.Want to be a guest at your own wedding? We'd love to take care of you. Interested in creating an experience that no one will ever forget? So are we! Get in touch and let's see if we're a match.
