One of the best-kept “secrets” of Santa Barbara wedding locations is the historic Santa Barbara Courthouse. With epic sweeping views of Santa Barbara’s coastline and rooftops from the tower, to the expansive dramatic Spanish architecture and gardens, which provide numerous areas for gorgeous ceremonies, the Santa Barbara Courthouse also offers incredible value. One of the best parts of hosting a wedding at the Santa Barbara Courthouse is the fact that there are so many picturesque backdrops for photo opportunities. It is truly a photographer’s dream, providing couples with beautiful wedding photos which will be fondly remembered for generations to come.
Michelle and Corey chose to host their wedding ceremony in the courthouse’s Mural Room, a room which surrounds guests with art on Santa Barbara’s history and sets the tone for any couple wanting to have a quintessential Santa Barbara wedding experience.
The charming and unique Narrative Loft, located near the Santa Barbara Funk Zone served as their reception site following their ceremony, and we were there to help them celebrate!
