Four Favorite and Unique Wedding Locations

We asked our membership to share their top wedding location to work in Santa Barbara County. Here are four wedding venues that four #SBWSMember wedding pros selected as their favorite:

Soleil Events - The Barn at Gainey Vineyard

Why? It feels like a slice of Europe way up Foxen Canyon..The historic barn  is tucked way back in the oaks by Patrick's Vineyard. The private winery is gorgeous and the wines are incredible!  It can be dressed up or left as rustic as can be. It's gorgeous as a backdrop at night and the built in fire pit is a hit!!

Merryl Brown Events  - Lotusland

Why? It is an extremely exclusive venue. The grounds are spectacular and absolutely magical. There is nothing in the world like it. Everywhere that you walk is breathtaking, allowing for fabulous spots to have (your) ceremony, cocktails and reception with spectacular photo backdrops galore! 

Andrejka Photography - Villa Verano

Why? Breathtaking views of the American Riviera with sunsetting vistas and picturesque backdrops. The exclusive use is perfect  to enjoy time with friends and family on one spacious, multi-level foothill estate which offers a myriad of options for week-end events.

By Cherry Photography - The Santa Barbara Club

Why? This downtown estate is an unexpected and unassuming  surprise, or an oasis in the heart of Santa Barbara. It is a private venue so couples get to enjoy it all day with spacious getting ready areas and  the great light for photography. The Santa Barbara Club's mix of outdoor and indoor reception options, rich architecture,  and lush outdoor garden makes this location dynamic for clients, and a photographer’s dream
