Historic & Unique Ranches
The city and county’s numerous stunning ranches are incredibly popular venues for weddings – and for good reasons! Many of these are tucked in beautiful settings surrounded by oak trees, lakes, mountains, and vineyards. Carpinteria’s Klentner Ranch has been a favorite for years with its gorgeous views overlooking the Pacific Ocean, barns, and rolling hills. The 82-acre Whispering Rose Ranch in Solvang is another great pick with its over a hundred horses and rustic setting. Other ideal ranch venues are Hidden Oaks Ranch, Fallen Oaks Estate, Alisal Guest Ranch, San Ysidro Ranch, Zaca Creek Ranch, and the historic Santa Margarita Ranch, which dates to the 1770s.
Vineyards & Wineries
The surrounding world-renowned wine country is packed with excellent destinations for weddings and receptions. In Santa Ynez Valley we find for example Roblar Winery and Sunstone Vineyards, while Los Olivos is home to Zaca Mesa and Crossroads Estates. Santa Maria Valley, also known for its rolling green vineyards, is home to wineries such as Lincourt in Solvang and Cotton Canyon Winery. The gorgeous Santa Rita Hills are also frequently visited for wedding receptions at wineries such as Turner Vineyard and Foley Estates. Further north, in Paso Robles, famous wineries such as Ernest Hemingway and Cass wineries also attract limos in large numbers for wedding receptions.
Resorts & Hotels
From rather giant luxury resorts to quaint and charming boutique hotels, places for lodging are always a good bet for weddings and receptions. Looking for a smaller site in picturesque surroundings? Check out wine country’s Santa Ynez Inn or For Friends Inn. A larger and more grand reception venue? How about Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront, Four Seasons Biltmore, or the Ritz-Carlton Bacara! Other trending venues are the Canary Hotel, Hotel Californian, Santa Barbara Inn, Rosewood Miramar Beach, and Flying Flags Resort.
Popular venues within city limits include the botanical gardens, zoological gardens, Santa Barbara Historical Museum, the Historic Courthouse, Unitarian Society, and A.C. Postel Memorial Rose Garden along with the nearby Old Mission. Searching for an even more unique reception? Santa Barbara Sailing Center and Scarlett Belle Cruises both specialize in wedding receptions at seas!
