n their six-acre East Valley Road ranch, these local high
school sweethearts – both husband and wife graduated from
Carpinteria High School – tied the knot in 2008 beneath a
gazebo built by the groom.
After a decade-long courtship, Anthony Pozzebon proposed to Heather
Gallup along a beach in Santa Barbara with a ring purchased from
Montecito jeweler Bryant & Sons, Ltd. Shortly afterwards, the couple
decided the perfect spot to say “I do” would be a place that was once
a dairy farm and was now the family ranch of Anthony’s grandparents,
Eugene and Ida Pozzebon.
It took six months to prepare the sprawling site for the summer nuptials:
after leveling mounds of dirt, grass, landscaping and stonework were
installed. In keeping with their “country” theme, the groom and his
attendants sported cowboy hats and boots, and the bride made her
entrance with her bridesmaids and father in a classic GMC turquoise
pickup truck. Anthony’s cousin, Dillon, acted as ring bearer.
