Bridal Sign Up

Melissa Traub & Jeff Piña

April 20, 2013 | Santa Barbara Woman’s Club

Melissa was radiant in a Lola M Designs headpiece and a Justin Alexander gown from Costa Mesa’s Mon Amie Bridal Salon.

THE COUPLE
Melissa and Jeff met at a house party shortly after graduating from high school. As Melissa puts it, neither of them would have guessed they’d get engaged on a San Francisco beach seven years later!
THE DETAILS
Designer Kelly Oshiro of Santa Barbara Chic set a mood of relaxed glamour. The focal point: sequined fabrics from La Tavola Linen, where Melissa is a sales rep.
THE PARTY
Duo Catering created fresh, locally sourced takes on the couple’s favorite comfort foods (corn dogs, truffle fries), and the bride made the cocktails herself. Crowd-pleasers included blueberry-mint lemonade and basil-lime Italian margaritas.
