Creekside Setting Nestled in the Santa Barbara Foothills

This is a true gem of a wedding venue, nestled in the Santa Barbara foothills. The beautiful creekside setting makes a great location for wedding ceremonies and cocktail hour. The massive indoor reception hall has multiple built in bars, a stage, and plenty of room for tables and a dance floor. All this is tucked into the peaceful surroundings of Santa Barbara’s Mission Canyon.

For your guests who desire a wedding with amplified music, we will also be offering the Luria Gallery and Main Courtyard for wedding receptions of 100 maximum guests. Dancing to amplified music will be allowed inside the Luria Gallery, with plenty of room for a dance floor, wedding cake and beverage station.

For weddings with 60 people or less the main courtyard is ideal for a seated dinner: Dancing can take place in the immediate adjacent Luria Gallery.

Please contact us for a personal guided tour of the museum, pricing information and logistics.

We look forward to many wonderful and memorable occasions.
