Hidden Oaks Ranch

Weddings and events at Hidden Oaks Ranch are private and peaceful. The property offers incredible views of the mountains and a glimpse of the ocean. There is also a beautiful clubhouse on the property with multiple bedrooms and lots of natural light for gorgeous detail and getting ready photos. This venue is an ideal location for couples that want to spend time with their guests before and after their ceremony.

Hidden Oaks Ranch is offering ceremony only options that can be designed under one of the large trees near the pool on their property, or in another area of the beautifully landscaped backyard. The venue is also offering micro-weddings and mini celebrations if you rent the house. The rental fee is $2500 a night with a two-night minimum and there is a discounted rate for weeknights. This rate includes the set-up and break down of in-house rentals of Tuscan x back chairs, tables, and heaters. And there is no additional site fee.

The bridal suite and other areas outside the Santa Barbara Historical Museum

The Santa Barbara Historical Museum

The historical museum is located near State Street in downtown Santa Barbara. It is a beautiful gardenesque venue with two adjoining courtyards accented with water fountains. Both of the courtyards are surrounded by the outer walls of the building. So your event will be out of sight to those walking around downtown.

And each courtyard is incredibly spacious so adhering to local guidelines regarding Covid-19 shouldn’t be a problem. The area is also expertly landscaped with both native and exotic plants offering a unique ambiance to your celebration. One of our favorite parts of this venue is the terrace. Vines cover the structure from top to bottom and drape across the arches.

There are a couple of options if you decide to rent the Santa Barbara Historical Museum for your ceremony or an intimate elopement. The Ceremony Only option allows the use of the courtyards, terrace, and the bridal room for up to 8 hours with 100 guests or fewer. The investment is $2000 for Monday thru Thursday, $3000 for Saturday, and $2500 for Friday and Sundays.

The Elopement option is for small gatherings booked less than 3 months in advance, and it allows the use of the courtyard and the bridal room for a minimum of four hours between 12-5 pm. With this option, you can bring 10 or fewer guests to celebrate with you. The investment is $500 for Monday thru Friday and $1000 for Saturday and Sundays.

Roblar Winery & Vineyards 

The Roblar Winery and Vineyards is located in the majestic Santa Ynez Valley, roughly 40 minutes from Santa Barbara. This location has so many beautiful and wonderful areas, but our favorite is the ceremony space. The Roblar Winery has one of the most picturesque ceremony spaces in the entire area. The altar can be set up between two large oak trees that open into the vineyards beyond. And since the construction just finished on their new winery building it only adds to the beauty of the property.

There are two micro-wedding packages offered by Roblar Winery. The main difference between the two is the time the event starts and ends. The first package is a daytime-only collection available between 11-5 pm. The investment is $250 per hour for a minimum of 3 hours. There is also a menu and wine fee per guest of $35 and $25 respectively. 

The second package is an evening-only collection and allows you and your guests to enjoy dinner by the stone fireplace. The investment is $500 per hour with a 4 hour minimum available from 5-10 pm. There is also a menu and wine fee per guest of $65 and $25 respectively.
