Kylie and Scott’s Santa Barbara Historical Museum Wedding Celebration

With a setting that nods to the historic and romantic old Spanish days of  Santa Barbara, yet is tucked away in a very secluded (yet convenient) spot of downtown Santa Barbara, The Santa Barbara Historic Museum offers several distinct areas for hosting all different types of events.  We especially love producing weddings there because each location feels distinct from the other and clients love saying their vows in the more intimate ceremony area and then adjourning to the more dramatic courtyard with beautiful fountain for a celebration under the starry Santa Barbara night sky (by the way, check out what this wedding couple did with the fountain for this event- truly fun, fresh, and eye-catching).

Lorrana and Jacob’s Santa Barbara Historical Museum Wedding Celebration

The Santa Barbara Historical Museum offers a warm and wonderful taste of historic Santa Barbara with its Spanish influence, and as the sun sets,  lights showcase the architecture, and stars overhead come out to play, guests are in for a beautiful Santa Barbara wedding experience.  Conveniently located downtown Santa Barbara, many of our couples find that their guests can stay at one of the lovely local hotels and walk to and from the wedding celebration at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum.

And one of our signature service items for our wedding couples always includes saved appetizers and drinks for the bride and groom during their post-ceremony photos.  We don’t want them to miss one bit of deliciousness during their cocktail hour!   We will either bring them their hors d’oeuvres, or ensure we save some and place them at their dinner setting (see photo below).  Our goal is for everyone to enjoy the fruits of their hard planning and menu choices for their special day.

Congratulations, Lorrana and Jacob!

Vibrant Santa Barbara Historical Museum Wedding Celebration

There is something about an old-fashioned church wedding that gets us every time.  Jennifer and Tyler wed at the gorgeous Our Lady of Mount Carmel church in Montecito and then , after some photos at iconic locations around Santa Barbara, chose to celebrate at one of Santa Barbara’s wedding location gems:  The Santa Barbara Historical Museum.  The vibrant floral arrangements tempered with the calming ocean-blue table setting touches and custom taco stations for their wedding menu brought all the summer splendor of Santa Barbara  to their dining experience for their guests.  And we were delighted to be a part of such a lovely celebration!

Client Reviews

Philippe is phenomenal!! I requested quotes and communicated with various catering companies but when I talked with Philippe I just knew that he would be the man for the job. He did not disappoint. He is very professional and he knows what he's doing, I trusted him very much throughout the planning process. As a caterer he went above and beyond, he went with us to pick out rentals and decide on colors and place settings, decide on our table layout, and he gave his professional opinion when asked. He met with us countless times and was super fast at responding to emails and questions. The day before the wedding Philippe and his team helped set up the venue and the day of they helped our coordinator set up the last minute details. Philippe and his entire staff made the planning process a breeze and all of our guests RAVED about how good the food was. You will be severely missing out if you do not choose catering connection for your wedding or next event!!

We rent out our auditorium at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and there was a company having their Holiday Party last Saturday. Due to an electric pole being knocked down in the middle of the night the evening before, all electricity was out. Catering Connection along with SMI Concepts were on top of it from the beginning, bringing in power and working in the dark for hours setting up and making sure the customer had a great evening (of course the electricity came on 1/2 hour after the party started.) Without Catering Connection's support and heroic efforts to make it happen, the party could not have gone on. Plus the food was a hit, the set up and breakdown smooth. I've never seen the auditorium as clean after and event. I highly recommend Catering Connection for all your events.

Catering connection far exceeded my expectations as to what a wedding caterer could offer- their service, attention to detail and food quality was second to none. So many guests commented that this was by far the best food they have ever had at a wedding. I had the pleasure of working with Phillipe who was a dream from start to finish. His extensive experience in the food- catering world offered a wealth of knowledge about all things food and entertaining. He helped me come up with a fun an creative menu and worked with me every step of the way to create the wedding of my dreams. I plan to use catering connection for any event, big or small, in the future. It felt like I was planning a party with a friend, who also happened to be an expert in this field. The servers and bartenders they provided were incredibly professional, attentive and polite.

I've read a few reviews and a lot of them say it all.
Ursula, and the crew, were more than caterers. Depending on what was needed, she was a wedding planner, she was very patient, a friend, a guide and, she made you feel like nothing could go wrong on your special day. I can't overstate how "above and beyond" Catering Connection goes. And MY GOODNESS....the food was fantastic!
The food, professionalism of the crew, accuracy of the quotes, communication along the way is all enough for a 5 star recommendation. If there was a way to give 10 stars for the intangibles I would click away. They care, they make it special, and no detail gets left behind. We opted for a plated salad and a buffet and the main courses were as good, or better, than any sit down restaurant in the area.
Like the other reviews said - look no further or you may regret it. This is your best value. This is the best team. Any other choice is simply irrational!

From the minute we met with Philippe we knew we had the right catering company. The customer service prior and at the wedding were outstanding. He and his staff were attentive not only to my groom and myself but specifically our head table which included our parents. Also the food was outstanding as we had BBQ Tri Tip, Chicken and sides. He customized it to just what we wanted. Philippe is very in tune with details and helped coordinate the party rentals as well. Overall an outstanding experience and we would highly recommend using them.
