La Arboleda is nestled in the center of the Santa Rita Hills with beautiful ceremony backdrops abundant throughout. The estate sits on acres of walnut & olive trees and features entertainment pavilions, a bar, and stage. The rustic dining pavilion is wrapped in glass and trellised with blooming vines. A waterfall feeds into a meandering stream that flows through the heart of the property. The lush and rustic setting truly feels like the perfect escape for an unforgettable wedding weekend.
Facilities and Capacity
La Arboleda can accommodate up to 400 guests. With multiple ceremony spaces to choose from, couples have the option of indoor or outdoor spaces. Created with mother nature in mind, the venue is complete with paved walkways and stained concrete flooring in the buildings and has the ability to enclose all trellised areas. This means that even rainy day weddings can be enjoyed beneath the covering of our seasonal protective rain covers. The venue is completely landscaped with a sustainable water system that flows from the waterfall to the water wheel and irrigates the entire property.
This wedding venue offers an indoor/outdoor kitchen and bar, making catering simple by offering preparation spaces. Restrooms are tucked away and can accommodate 6 guests at a time.

ZACA CREEK || Our sister venue
Originally built by the founding Buell family of Buellton, Zaca Creek had been an iconic location in the Santa Ynez Valley for generations. After shutting its doors for over 18 years and sitting in wait, it has been resurrected as a provincial wedding venue inspired by 17th century English countryside. The design aesthetic of the stone buildings is entirely old world. From the massive stone and heavy timber exterior of the buildings to the thatch roof and hand carved alder doors, this place feels unique yet cohesive in Santa Barbara wine country.
Facilities and Capacity
Zaca Creek can accommodate up to 200 guests. Offering access to the property for your entire wedding weekend to accommodate your rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception.
Zaca Creek offers onsite catering and beverage menus from The Tavern; multiple locations to host your ceremony and reception; and access to The Cellar, our private and exclusive wine cellar, to host your rehearsal dinner. Also included are 6 Tavern Suites that can sleep up to 24 guests.

The Perfect Venue
It is hard to put into words how amazing Chelsea is.Sent on 01/19/2021
I will start off by explaining that our original wedding was supposed to be June 6, 2020. Everything from our first viewing of the property, all of our contact leading up to it and after, all of my changing plans and million questions were handled swiftly and professionally by Chelsea. When the COVID pandemic hit, Chelsea was incredibly understanding and helpful with moving our wedding date God knows how many times. We eventually decided on June of 2021 for our new date. We were able to move dates at no extra cost, which was refreshing considering everything else a bride normally has to deal with.
Now two years later, with the pandemic still going on and our grandparents unable to travel, my Fiance and I had to make the heartbreaking decision to cancel our wedding at La Arboleda. Chelsea has been THE most understanding human in the world. I wish I could have had my wedding here.
Let me tell you, the venue itself is incredibly gorgeous. Full of lush greenery, scenery, flowers, green grass, lights and beauty everywhere. The bridesmaids and groomsmen suites are so cute, perfect for getting ready with your girls and celebrating the night before your big day. The indoor reception area is gorgeous, perfect for dancing, toasting and eating, while still open to the outdoor area for games and photo ops.
Although I heartbreakingly did not get to have my wedding here, I would highly recommend La Arboleda to any bride who wants the most beautiful and effortless wedding. And I can guarantee that Chelsea will be your new favorite human.

This was the third venue we looked at and we immediately knew this was where we wanted to get married. La Arboleda is everything I imagined for my dream wedding. They were extremely accommodating and responsive to all of our questions. This venue set itself apart with it's spacious yet intimate ambiance and picturesque location. We were able to have a full bar and there was no 10:00 pm music restriction. I would highly recommend La Arboleda for any wedding, we received so many compliments during and after the wedding.Sent on 05/03/2016

We absolutely LOVE La Arboleda. It's the perfect venue for summer and even winter too with their beautiful Pole Barn structure. It has tons of charm and it's definitely one of our favorite new venues around town. Chelsea is also just a joy to work with. We're looking forward to many weddings at La Arboleda in the future.
