Santa Barbara Weddings

With its perpetual mild weather, everlasting stretches of golden beach and romantic Spanish architecture; Santa Barbara is the ideal place to have your wedding. With plenty of choices of venue, the incredible sun-drenched beaches, the wineries lodged in the rolling foothills of the Santa Ynez mountain range, the old mission in Santa Barbara or even the zoo, your wedding can be set against any backdrop you like.

The Firestone vineyard is set in the Santa Ynez Mountains and has two locations available for weddings and events. The original Santa Barbara county estate winery has spectacular views of surrounding vineyards and mountains, and on site are different features of the winery—a lavender-accented terrace, gardens and a cozy courtyard. The winery is a great venue for up to 150 guests.

The Crossroads estate is the other location connected with the Firestone vineyard, and features a spacious pole barn with a raised stage. Outside is a stunning expanse of green lawn, dotted with oak trees, that has a fantastic backdrop of the mountains behind it. This is just one example of the many wineries in the area that offer their services for special events.

Closer to Santa Barbara town are several options just as breathtaking for your Santa Barbara wedding. One favorite is the Santa Barbara courthouse, which looks like an old Spanish castle. It is a majestic, terracotta colored building featuring a round tower at one end, also a popular spot for wedding ceremonies. The sunken gardens are a delight to wander through, and many people have used the gardens for the actual ceremony. Inside the building is the stunning Mural room, which can be either a first choice or a spectacular back-up plan should the weather let you down.

The Santa Barbara Alice Keck gardens are another favorite for Santa Barbara weddings. The large carp pond, with bridges and a nearby arbor make perfect settings for a wedding. The central sundial area is a perfect spot for intimate ceremonies. With ever-blooming foliage, garden paths for the guests to wander and a round elevated stage area, the Santa Barbara Alice Keck gardens are a really popular choice. There are many other locations within Santa Barbara, including the Unity Church of Santa Barbara, the Mission Rose gardens and the Santa Barbara zoo.

There are also the Santa Barbara beaches to consider, all of which make stunning and romantic settings. Leadbetter beach, with its crescent shape, wide sands and palm shaded green lawns is a guaranteed success as a site. Butterfly beach, practically the only west-facing beach in Santa Barbara has stunning sunset views later in the day.
