The Santa Barbara Historical Museum is Santa Barbara historical elegance at its best. And weddings at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum are among the most memorable and elegant. Located downtown Santa Barbara, many guests decide to stay at the lovely boutique inns surrounding the museum and walk to the celebration. It is a great location for convenience and beauty and it really captures the romantic history of Santa Barbara. We love doing weddings at this stunning wedding location! Check out some of the special touches Marina and Ryan did below as well as some fabulous photos!

Special Touches: Bella Vista Designs did a stunning job providing a charming backdrop to this Santa Barbara Historical Museum wedding. Vintage Doors and Lanterns to create a backdrop behind the officiant and bride and groom for the ceremony-supplied by Bella Vista. Some of our other favorite things included the bride performing with the band, a “family tree” guest book, tablesettings that went with the setting at the museum so beautifully: rot iron lanterns, flowers and wine bottles, a non-traditional “head table” (a long ranchero table down the middle of guests rather than placement at the “top” of the dining space); vintage chalkboard seating chart created by the bride who is a teacher by profession and table names were concert venues that were special to the bride and groom. Every part of this wedding was packed with personal touches from the bride and groom and complemented the magical setting of the Santa Barbara Historical Museum.
