If you’re still searching for that perfect location for your wedding, then Santa Barbara, California may be the answer! This sunny coastal city is a long-established top destination for weddings, and has been a favorite spot for many couples as they start their newly married life. With beautiful beaches and its stunning mountain scenery, you’ll be the envy of all of your friends as they celebrate with you.  From breathtaking outdoor ceremony venues to luxurious indoor reception halls, Santa Barbara has it all when it comes to weddings. Whether you’re looking for a romantic beach setting or an urban chic atmosphere, you’ll find the perfect venue for you and your partner.  

One of the main reasons that Santa Barbara is a favorite destination for weddings is the year-round ideal weather.  With that being a big worry for many couples as they plan their day, Santa Barbara’s Mediterranean climate means that the city has ideal weather for weddings all year round.  For summer weddings in Santa Barbara, you’ll usually experience temperatures around the mid-70s and mild. And even during the winter months, the city’s temperatures and lack of rain make for a comfortable and enjoyable wedding experience. No matter which season you choose, you have a great chance of enjoyable weather for your ceremony.

And whether you prefer a classic, formal ceremony or a more relaxed celebration, Santa Barbara has some great options.  The many grand ballrooms and historic estates provide the perfect backdrop for an elegant and more traditional affair. The Rosewood Miramar Beach is a luxury favorite, and offers a captivating estate-style atmosphere. Other popular traditional venues include the Belmond El Encanto and San Ysidro Ranch.  For those looking for a venue for a more casual and relaxed outdoor ceremony, the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa is a popular choice, and even the Santa Barbara Zoo offers a unique and playful setting for a celebration.

In addition to these options, Santa Barbara also offers a range of other wedding styles, from rustic farm weddings to beachfront ceremonies. The diverse landscape allows couples to choose from a wide variety of stunning settings, whether they want to say their vows overlooking the Pacific Ocean or surrounded by lush vineyards.

But one of the most important choices in creating the perfect, memorable wedding trip is your selection of accommodations.  And Haller Coastal Homes prides itself on having some amazing options that are ideally suited for wedding groups.  Although events and social gatherings are not permitted at the properties, the ideal locations within close proximity to one another as well as the ability to accommodate large families and groups make these perfect choices!
