The breathtaking scenery and comfortable Mediterranean climate make the City of Santa Barbara an ideal place to celebrate your wedding. The Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center is a landmark facility with a stunning beachfront location. Built in the 1920s, this Spanish-style building, with its white stucco exterior and terra cotta tiled roof stands alone on the beach. Pledge your undying love for one another right on the sand in a romantic beachfront ceremony with the glistening ocean as your backdrop. The prime location for your cocktail hour is on the pavilion’s two beachfront patios. Inside, the spacious ballroom boasts a wood-beamed ceiling, wrought iron chandeliers, wall-to-wall carpeting, and a bank of ocean-view windows that allow plenty of natural sunlight to stream in. On each side of the room, hardwood staircases lead to oak-banister balconies, perfect for bouquet tossing. The staff is friendly and experienced and they will work with you to ensure you enjoy your special day.
