Enchanting Church, Courtyard & Charming Garden in the Heart of Santa Barbara 

This is a beautiful church with tall, stained glass windows that create an enchanting venue for a wedding. A large courtyard makes a perfect wedding reception area, and the commercial kitchen makes the catering simple and fast. There is a charming garden enclosed in the back and the wedding site is conveniently in the heart of Santa Barbara.

The price for a ceremony includes a rehearsal, staff member who is there to help direct and will run our sound equipment and lights, as well as a room off of the sanctuary for the bridal party to get dressed privately, and the Gardened Courtyard of course. When the wedding ceremony and reception are booked together, there is also a full commercial kitchen and separate patio included as well, which is also beautiful for photos. Our A/V equipment is excellent for music and slideshows. We have a great dance floor for music and speeches and tables and chairs are available for up to 150 guests.

The Sanctuary can accommodate up to 285 guests and our indoor reception hall can accommodate 120 sit-down guests. We do have the adjoining courtyard for larger outdoor receptions/ and or photos as well.
