Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

The Rincon Beach Club, located in the seaside community of Carpinteria just south of Santa Barbara, is bound to make you smile as soon as you arrive: It resides on "Santa Claus Lane" amid colorful shops and cafés dotting the shoreline. We’re pretty sure smiles will continue throughout your time at Rincon, a gracious, private haven with mountain vistas and an easy, coastal sophistication.

The Beach Club has two main event areas: The Dining Room, which exudes a quiet elegance; and the Wedding Garden, a leafy courtyard enclosed by 10-foot-high walls of flowering vines and lined with shimmering fairy light curtains. In this charming outdoor oasis, reception tables are arranged on a spacious flagstone patio beneath an ingenious wooden framework embellished with wooden chandeliers and Tuscan string lights. The effect is like being in an airy pavilion that’s modern, yet warm, and oh-so-chic. A rose garden at one end is a pretty spot for ceremonies (and couples have their choice of three in-house arches with ivory draping). Guests are comfortably seated on vineyard chairs with ivory cushions, and the sound of breaking waves in the background is a natural accompaniment to the momentous occasion.

But if it’s an oceanfront ceremony that you crave, the RBC has you covered! It’s just a five-minute stroll from the club to the beach, where Rincon’s experienced style squad will personalize your setting: Imagine a wedding aisle lined with seashells and driftwood, or a bamboo arch draped with tropical garlands—they can even lay grass sod right on the sand!

Everyone returns to the club for cocktail hour, where a mahogany bar on the garden’s West Patio becomes a social hub for some guests, while others mingle or lounge on couches next to a "succulent garden" fountain. An open-air garden reception beneath a starry sky is utterly enchanting, especially with the sweet scent of jasmine and refreshing sea breezes.

For dancing or a more formal reception, the adjacent Dining Room is perfect. French doors on two sides let in the garden view, and the room’s clean, uncluttered style provides a refined backdrop for personalized décor. The club has a collection of furniture, props, classy uplighting, and other accoutrements to create whatever atmosphere you envision.

At Rincon Beach Club, you get much more than a picturesque venue: Expert planning, event production, and palate-pleasing cuisine are also part of the package. This full-service approach is not only a time—and money—saver, it also results in a more cohesive expression of your vision. Rincon’s experienced professionals know how to craft a celebration that reflects your style and taste. This is especially evident when it comes to your menu, which they’ll customize from aperitif to dessert. From global-inspired delicacies to the latest food trends, absolutely nothing intimidates these culinary artists!

Minutes from Santa Barbara, yet "miles from conventional", Rincon Beach Club and Catering’s impressive presentation and devotion to details really sets them apart. As one satisfied bride put it: "I was so relaxed—I just showed up and had fun!"
