Santa Barbara has so many hidden jewel wedding locations. Apart from the gorgeous private estates, world-class luxury resorts, wineries and so many more, we wanted to throw a little love towards a niche wedding location: the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. Nestled in a wooded area that provides shade in the summer and the sounds of a rushing creek almost all year-round, The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History offers a unique and natural setting for more under-stated weddings. There are indoor and outdoor options with lots of picturesque backdrops for perfect photo opportunities. It’s one of our favorites!
