"The club wasn't our first choice, mainly because it's pricier. We had lost our first venue to reasons beyond anybody's control. So, about six months before the wedding we contacted the Santa Barbara Club and I don't think they could have been more accommodating. Our event coordinator was wonderful! She was so patient, kind and understanding. The service was seamless. There was a really sweet server who kept telling me how pretty I looked and seemed genuinely happy for us. All the other servers were great too. The evening just flowed perfectly. Worth every penny! The venue was beautiful and because they only have one event going on each weekend, you can really make the place yours. There were only a couple things that weren't perfect, but I don't think it should discourage anybody. The bridal suite didn't have any mirrors in it when we arrived or waters, but the groom suite had waters and was all ready for them. They quickly fixed the problem when my mother mentioned something. The only other thing is that we had a hosted bar, but one of the bartenders kept saying something to the guests that alluded it was cash only. I heard him say something once along those lines once myself, but I guess he said it a lot because many of our guests thought the only hosted bar was the one outside. As a result people waited longer outside and started purchasing liquor drinks inside thinking they had to pay for drinks anyway (It was open beer and wine). I chalk this up to just a bartender needing some etiquette training. I don't place to much blame on the venue for this. At the end of the day though, the venue was extremely accommodating and everybody was so friendly. They made our wedding day special and we look back with nothing but fond memories of the day. The Santa Barbara Club has a great team of people. "
"The Santa Barbara Club was the perfect place for our wedding! We knew it when we toured the club and when we booked it, but our wedding day was absolutely perfect. We had an excellent coordinator of our own, but Julie and Alejandra at the Club were extremely professional, knowledgeable, and helpful with all the details leading up to and on the big day. The building itself is beautiful, with lots of old world charm, and the library is gorgeous! And the food is amazing! They have their own parking lot for guests, you get the whole property for your whole day, and they provide all the tables, chairs, linens, etc. (unless you want to arrange to bring in your own). I really can't say enough good things about the Santa Barbara Club and the incredible wedding we had there. I even think the price was reasonable if you compare the whole package to having the same wedding/reception elsewhere."
"The Santa Barbara Club was the perfect venue for us. We looked at so many places in the Santa Ynez Valley and in Santa Barbara but nothing felt right. The moment we looked at the club we fell in love and instantly and knew that was the place we were meant to be. Alejandra is an absolute gem, so easy and great to work with. We loved it so much we joined as members so we could go back anytime! "
