Featured last week on Green Wedding Shoes, The Jam Event in Santa Barbara is a pretty rad kickoff to the new year. Held in January at Dos Pueblos Orchid Farm, this year’s theme for The Jam Event was “heavy metal,” and the designers and attendees alike took metallics, dramatic color palettes, and big hair to the next level. Jaime from Wild Heart Events does such an incredible job getting the vendors together for some Santa Barbara wedding inspiration and a super-fun party!
Where do we even begin with all the deliciousness that The Jam had to offer? There was Smitten Ice Cream (I’m definitely smitten with their blood orange pistachio), and Holdren’s appetizers were YUM (as were the bites offered by Buena Onda, Autostrada, 805 Smoke, Seasons, and Pure Joy). We played in Amuse Booth and Flipbooth (as usual — wedding vendors can’t resist a photo or video booth) and danced our faces off to Gavin Roy and Vanity Fair. And oh, the drinks! Road Soda (I LOVE their trailer) and Simply Cocktails brought their A-games. I also wore my cymbal earrings by sponsor Chime Jewelry (I bought them weeks before The Jam when I heard about the concept — jewelry from repurposed drum cymbals?! YES).
We were so excited to have our photos featured on GWS; here are some more (our personal faves) to whet your whistle.
Nina from Coco Rose is a fave of mine, and so was her stunning Alchemist concept! And Rhianna and I took so many damn photos of those incredible suspended bells. Rentals from Otis + Pearl and Elan Event Rentals.
EmmaRose Floral totally killed it with this bold, moody Industrialist design!
Last, but certainly not least, the Haut Monde table was designed by our friend Kristen of Oak Barrel and Bloom. Pale matte sequins, cascading greenery, copper accents, and blackberries?! Yes. All the things.
There were, of course, many more sparkly, fun details in nearly every nook and cranny of the greenhouse. Here are some additional highlights from the evening!
Yes, it was as much fun as it looked! Here is the roster of additional sponsoring vendors, and another big “thank you” to Jaime for hosting!
