In the heart of Santa Barbara towards the upper east side are several of Santa Barbara’s most renowned and picturesque parks. And nestled right next to these parks is the beautiful Unitarian Society church, welcoming all and being a central part of our community for many years. Their location is prime for out-of-town wedding guests who can enjoy accommodations very close (some within walking distance). It also offers a gorgeous backdrop for a church wedding and convenient reception right in the adjacent courtyard- all boasting Spanish style architecture consistent with Santa Barbara. Wedding Planner Percy Sales does many weddings at the Unitarian Society, and we will let the beautiful photos speak for themselves as to the summer magic for Christyn and Tahsin’s Santa Barbara wedding day.
