I love being one of the lucky Santa Barbara wedding photographers. On any given day, I shoot weddings at pristine vineyards with perfect light, gorgeous hotels with windows that go from floor to ceiling, 200 year old adobes that fall into perfect contrast with a bride’s gorgeous dress and a groom’s creased tux and palms that sway in the afternoon breeze. Santa Barbara weddings, Santa Ynez weddings and San Luis Obispo weddings are quite simply my favorite to shoot. I recently photographed a Firestone Vineyard wedding and was struck by how lucky I am to live on the California Central Coast. If you are undecided about your wedding venue, I suggest you take a look at some of the amazing Santa Barbara wedding locations I have listed below.
Recommended Santa Barbara wedding locations include:
Fess Parker Winery, Cabrillo Arts Center, The Biltmore, The Bacara Resort, Barbara County Courthouse Sunken Garden, The Ojai Valley Inn and Parkers Wine Country Inn and Spa, Firestone Vineyard, Four Seasons Biltmore, Gainey Vineyard, Montecito Country Club, Moody Estate and the Arbor at Twin Peaks Ranch, Music Academy of the West, the Santa Barbara Mission, the old Presidio and the Greek Orthodox Church or the Sunstone Vineyards & Winery.
Below is a sample 7 x 10 inch guest book with black pages. I was asked for one of these a little while back and only recently had time to put a sample together. The images in the book are from Travis and Karlie’s wedding at Fess Parker Winery just North of Santa Barbara.
