I got married at the Inn on October 1st, and it could not have gone better. I was so happy with the service, the attention and the communication by the Assistant GM Kristopher Salloway, he made sure to go over every detail with me from start to finish! His attention to detail, exceeded our expectations. My husband and I stayed at their sister property, The Landsby for a few nights before staying at The Inn, and Kristopher made it a point to come by to welcome us. This venue is absolutely stunning. We'll absolutely be back to visit Kristopher and The Santa Ynez Inn. I would give 10 stars if I could.Sent on 10/13/2017

My husband and I chose to have our wedding at this hotel. We couldn't have chosen a better venue. It was so lovely and surpassed my expectations!Sent on 12/28/2016
Planning a wedding at this venue was as stress free as it could have been. Kristopher, the wedding coordinator from the Inn, was available to help us at every step of the way in the planning process and the day-of event execution. He helped us write out a timeline, create a floor plan, arrange a tasting of the menu, and was very accommodating in providing ice tea and water for guests at the ceremony, and a few decorative tables as well. He also threw in extra roasted vegetable dishes at the reception buffet that we weren't expecting! The Inn provided tables, linens, dinnerware, chairs, a full bar, a full buffet and servers. I loved that I didn't have to worry about clean up or coordinating with a million vendors.
The atmosphere at the Inn made the wedding so lovely. The vintage architecture and all of the greenery and flowers gave us some amazing photos. We held the reception in the coach house, which has beautiful wood floors, huge romantic barn doors, bar area, and big chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. It was perfect for an elegant, intimate, candlelit reception.
As far as staying at the Inn, that was a great experience as well. My husband and I got the honeymoon suite, complete with jacuzzi, fireplace, and balcony. The Inn provides a continental breakfast every morning, as well as hors d'oeuvres and dessert in the evenings. I am used to the standard boring continental breakfast from chain hotels, but this was 10 times better than that. Delicious gourmet pastries, berries and fruit, artisan granola, and omelets, crepes and pancakes made to order. Also great coffee and a fancy selection of teas.
We were so impressed by this hotel and couldn't be happier that we decided to have our wedding here!

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!
