Given that Santa Barbara is a popular and beautiful destination, and that we've chosen to have our wedding on a holiday weekend, we encourage everyone to book travel and accommodations as soon as they are able. Below please find a list of accommodation options that we hope you find helpful. For convenience, we wanted to compile as many options for you as possible. 

Listed below are several hotels offering special room rates, as well as other options we think you might enjoy. But please know there are other hotel options and all sorts of smaller motels and inns as well if you'd like to broaden your search. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.



First and foremost, Santa Barbara is home to some stunning real estate, and we encourage guests, especially those who are staying in groups, to consider browsing through Airbnb and VRBO options. There are some amazing houses and rooms that can also be cost efficient. If your search takes you there, know that neighboring communities such as Montecito, Summerland, Carpinteria, and Goleta are also within striking distance and would be suitable to stay in as well. And as many of you are aware, recent floods and fires have devastated Santa Barbara County, and Montecito in particular. Visit our Relief tab for more information, and if you have booked accommodations in or near Montecito, we encourage people to check in on your reservations. And as always, we are here to help.
