Rancho de las Palmas

Santa Barbara



Step onto the grounds of Rancho de las Palmas and enter a private estate with a tropical garden paradise, stunning fountains, and sparkling waterfalls. The property is surrounded by tall palm trees that create a secluded oasis with winding paths and a bridge that spans across the water surrounding the island. The large, covered pavilion is gorgeous and exquisite with a crisp white gazebo-like rooftop and white pillars throughout. Imagine saying your "I Do"s with this spectacular view as a backdrop. Inside, the ceiling can be draped with rich white fabric for an elegant, Cinderella-style sit-down reception. The calming ambiance parallels the unrivaled backdrop of a sensational tropical paradise to create an unforgettable occasion.
