Travel & Accommodations

We are thrilled to be having our wedding in the beautiful city of Santa Barbara! This place means so much to us, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. During the summer months, hotels book up quickly for those who are eager to enjoy the gorgeous coastline, food, wine, and culture of Santa Barbara.

As it happens, the weekend of our wedding the Old Spanish Days - Fiesta will be taking place in the city. This incredible cultural event will be a wonderful activity for all our guests to enjoy if they so choose, however, it also means hotels will be in high demand. We recommend booking your stay as soon as possible for peace of mind and to lock in the best deals! 

Below we've listed several options within walking distance or a short drive to our wedding venue.
