    This place is seriously a dream come true!! Breanna was absolutely wonderful to work with. We booked this venue because of her. From the gorgeous oak tree where we got married, the beautiful cocktail hour area, and the amazing set up where dinner was served and where the reception took place, it was a dream come true. The food was also delicious. If you are thinking of getting married in SB, do it here. You will not be disappointed!!!!

    Gorgeous Venue with Above-and-Beyond Staff Team

    We had our August 2018 wedding ceremony and reception with 115 guests at Riviera Mansion. The venue is of course gorgeous, and gave the classic Santa Barbara look/feel that we wanted for our big day, but what made both the planning and event itself better than any other wedding I have been to is the fantastic staff!

    1. Planning: Venue coordinators Breanna and Sarah were extremely helpful in the planning process - promptly answering questions about the venue and helping us thinking of timeline and planning details we may have otherwise missed.
    2. Event Execution: They also ensured the day of the event went so smoothly. Everything was timed perfectly - from serving dinner, bringing in our cake, and more - and the staff was incredibly gracious and attentive to our guests.
    3. Food/Drink: We heard from so many guests that the dinner was one of the best meals they have ever had. Chef Jamie was so accommodating, creative and thoughtful in his menu recommendations - including an amazing dessert bar and wine selection.
    4. The Space: Riviera Mansion provided something for everyone - and we noticed our guests in all of these places! From the games we set up on the lawn, to the gorgeous living room where our older guests lounged during dancing - the spaces are beautiful, don't require a lot of decor, and are well-maintained (some recently updated). We also loved that it was close to downtown SB, yet very quiet and private.

    Thank you, Riviera Mansion, for making our wedding day flawless, special and beautiful!
