Santa Barbara Location Bargains

Are you looking to have your wedding ceremony and reception in beautiful Santa Barbara—without breaking the bank? We’ve got two fabulous finds: The first is Elings Park, a private, estate-like setting sequestered in the forested bluffs above the Pacific Ocean. This non-profit park’s 230 scenic acres includes several special event venues with a breathtaking blend of city, hillside and coastal views. Exchange vows in a stone amphitheater, serve cocktails on an oak-shaded patio, and then let the reception unfold on a vast garden lawn!

This welcoming, non-denominational church is right in town, across the street from Alice Keck Memorial Gardens (which provides gorgeous photo ops). Unity’s cozy campus includes a contemporary, skylit sanctuary; a fountain courtyard with a zen-like ambiance; and historic Unity House, whose white-columned veranda overlooks a lush garden meadow.
