Also known as The American Riviera, Santa Barbara offers both ocean and mountain views. The mesmerizing Santa Ynez Mountains provide a perfect background, while the Pacific waves roll in on the other side. Beside the natural beauty that surrounds this city, it is a special place because of it’s architectural style and romantic coastal vibe. The wonderful weather, laid-back culture, Spanish Colonial architecture and nearby wine country make it the perfect place for couples who want to provide a unique experience for their guests. A wedding weekend destination for many, the natural beauty of Santa Barbara and its surrounding areas provide the perfect, romantic backdrop for a truly elegant weddings.

Santa Barbara offers a wide variety of venues to meet anyone's style and vision. Incorporate the history of the city by planning a wedding at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, a cultural landmark features courtyards, fountains and early Spanish California architecture. If you are looking to incorporate a separate ceremony location, consider the Santa Barbara Courthouse - a magnificent landmark in the heart of the city. Or, celebrate with your guests at the sophisticated yet laid-back Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara– it is the perfect spot for your wedding and a fun filled weekend with beautiful bungalows, great food and the beach right in front of the resort. If you are like us, you will never want to leave this extraordinary city.

We love Santa Barbara because of the preserved historic architecture, lush gardens, stunning coastal light and the kindness of locals. The red-orange terracotta tiles, stark white adobe, vibrant green flora, and bright blue skies fill the photos with color for stunning portraits. We photographed our first wedding in Santa Barbara, and it will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Below are some of the locations where we have had the opportunity to photograph weddings (including those a little south, east and north). We’d love to answer any questions you might have – connect with us at sonja@mikiandsonja.com.
