One of the most popular Southern California wedding venues, and one I often officiate at, is the Santa Barbara Courthouse. This historic Spanish style building has been recognized as one of the finest architectural public buildings in the United States. For very small weddings, less than fifteen people, six different lawn locations are available at no charge. Five other areas are available for weddings up to 250 people, and may be reserved. Inside you will find the Mural room, a location with an old California historic feel shown above in the second set of pictures.
You can’t really go wrong at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. Following your wedding ceremony in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, you will find multiple fine restaurants and wine bars available. Rabbi Donald Kunstadt surfingventurarabbi
