We recently got married at Santa Ynez Inn and it was the most beautiful, perfect day we could ever imagine. Our wedding had been postponed due to Covid, however John Schultz and the staff at SYI had been completely accommodating for us as we dealt with the changing guidelines. They were completely professional with us throughout the whole process. We had about 65 guests with our ceremony and cocktail hour in the garden area, and the reception in the coach house. Our guests were completely in awe of how beautiful the space is. The food was amazing, drinks were freshly made, and staff was on top of it. Staying at the inn made the day even more special, the rooms are pristine and hospitality that is unmatched! We had our rehearsal dinner at The Landsby, under the same ownership, with the same delicious food and amazing staff. I have nothing but great things to say about our wedding weekend! Highly recommend.Sent on 05/25/2021

Best Staff to work with
We had our wedding scheduled for October but had to recently cancel due to COVID. Throughout the entire process, John and the staff at the Santa Ynez could not have been more helpful and flexible with adapting to the unexpected changes and closures. The venue is absolutely beautiful and affordable. We had to make the difficult decision to officially cancel, and John called me personally. He is the best person to work with, offered us a full refund, and made an emotional and difficult decision easier for us. My husband and I plan on returning to the Santa Ynez Inn for our anniversary and for many more trips in the future.Sent on 07/07/2020

Gorgeous ceremony location in the Coach House!
My husband and I were looking for a beautiful, lowkey spot for our small ceremony in January and found exactly what we were looking for in the coach house at the Santa Ynez inn! John on staff was extremely helpful and communicative, and our vendors had no problems getting on site to set up florals. My bridesmaids and I all got ready in one of the suites at the Inn and it was MAGICAL and beautiful, and the library downstairs was the perfect spot for the groom and groomsmen to get dressed and toast whiskey in. We could not have asked for a better venue for our ceremony!Sent on 05/30/2020

Team of Santa Ynez Inn
I've enjoyed working in the hospitality industry for ten years and have spent the last four years facilitating weddings and events. I initially got my start working in Yosemite National Park and from there I have come to love hospitality and working with my guests to bring their vision to fruition. Outside of work, I'm interested in filmmaking, photography, movies, the outdoors, skateboarding, fishing and sports.
One of my favorite venues in Santa Ynez! It is the perfect place for an intimate luxury wedding. It has amazing grounds and the carriage house is a designer's dream to add gorgeous detailing for the big day. The Santa Ynez Inn is definitely sophisticated grace with warm hospitality in the heart of Santa Barbara Wine Country. Don't miss this space on your hunt for a wedding venue!
Santa Ynez Inn has wonderful staff who make sure their couples are taken care of above and beyond. Their garden is a beautiful and unique gem for your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. There is also a space indoors for a reception in case weather does not cooperate. Your guests can even stay at the hotel so they are only a walk away from your wedding. Go visit Kirsten and let her show you around this charming venue!
