Whoever said Santa Barbara sunsets had to be at one of the leading oceanside resorts or on the beach sand itself doesn’t know Santa Barbara. Right across the street from the beach is the charming Chase Palm Park, with sprawling lawns, palm trees, a charming carousel and gorgeous over-the-ocean Santa Barbara sunset views. The location is easily accessible for guests and event supply partners and provides a perfect Santa Barbara backdrop. Sarah and Jared said “I do” in front of the whimsical carousel and enjoyed an evening of celebrating with friends and family under the stars in an aubergine-inspired decor hue. Their Wishing Tree was also a fun touch, with special notes and wishes from all their guests waving in the ocean breezes.
