Santa Barbara is one of those fairytale locations where rolling hills and crystal blue ocean meet in one incredible place on the coast of California. Nicknamed the American Riviera, Santa Barbara has it all, from vineyards to coasts to sprawls of land dotted with cacti. Find out why getting married in Santa Barbara is a dream come true.
There's no shortage of incredible Santa Barbara wedding venues, from historic ballrooms to waterfront resorts. Nearly anywhere you look, the picturesque landscape is primed for your wedding photos. Green hills, lush wineries, and sparkling seas greet you in every direction. Whether you've envisioned palm trees and softly crashing waves for a beach wedding, or feel more at home in a modern mansion that celebrates Santa Barbara's culture, there's a location right for you. The popular wedding venues in Santa Barbara are as diverse and beautiful as the couples looking to wed here.
Do be aware that since the cost of living is higher in this magical area, weddings and accommodations are pricier, too. This is one of the more expensive parts of the country to get married, with the average cost of a wedding here running over $47,000. However, as anyone who lives, stays or weds here can tell you, the price is worth it.
Stunning locations for your wedding are all around the Santa Barbara area, particularly if you're willing to drive out of city limits. You can explore ranches in the Santa Rita Hills and Santa Ynez Valley, farm-to-table event spaces settled near the coast, and additional wineries and golf clubs surrounding the city proper. Goleta is a local favorite, where you can head from the beach to lemon groves and up to the mountains within 10 miles. Montecito is a seaside paradise with breathtaking miles of coastline and, since it's a popular place for celebrities to relax, you'll notice a distinct touch of luxury in the local hotels. Those that want to revel in the natural beauty of the area, but prefer a more laid back atmosphere, Summerland has the charming, small-town feel for you. No matter where you hold your wedding, you'll be enchanted by the venue options in the Santa Barbara area.
Santa Barbara weather is reliably sunny, so it's hard to go wrong in any season. If you've chosen an outdoor venue and want to make sure you avoid the rain, late spring and early summer have the smallest chance of precipitation. Fall brings warm Santa Ana winds at sunset, so an indoor venue might be preferable if you're planning an evening wedding and don't want your décor to blow around in the wind. Still, it's hard to choose seasons or wedding venues in Santa Barbara that aren't just right.
As you begin planning for the day of your dreams, let WeddingWire help you explore your options with our wedding planning tools. In a sea of beautiful locations, we can help you narrow your search and pinpoint just the Santa Barbara wedding venues you're looking for.
