We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Chase Palm Park Center in February. The venue was perfect for our small, intimate wedding (50). We had a struggle finding a wedding venue in Santa Barbara that could be entirely indoors if the weather was bad (always a concern in February). This was perfect! It turned out that weather was great, and we were able to get married on the patio facing the ocean.

The major pros of this venue: location, size (for smaller weddings), price (includes tables and chairs), indoor/outdoor venue, ability to have ceremony & reception in the same place, able to dance outdoors on patio (we rented a dance floor for indoors since it was February), music can play until midnight, Leslie and her staff were friendly and accommodating

The only real con I found for this location was that they're pretty strict about hours. You only reserve it for the day of your event, so you can't do any set up the day before. Also, they told us they would sweep and spray the patio the morning of our wedding, but according to our coodinator and caterer, this didn't happen.

Other than the few minor cons, this is really a great Santa Barbara wedding venue!

We only had our reception here, but it was wonderful! Beautiful room with wood rafters and a priceless view of the ocean. They provide chairs, tables and a dance floor. They help you make your floor plan and they set up the chairs, tables, dance floor and anything else of theirs you are using before your time starts there. The staff is really helpful and answer all questions promptly. Even though we had about 1/2 capacity at our wedding, it felt full and lively. You have to use all outside vendors, but they do have a preferred list, who have all done events there before.

Cabrillo Pavillion Arts Center was our choice for venue since we wanted a wedding ceremony on the sand in Santa Barbara. I don't think we could have a found a more convenient location, our hotel was a crossed the street from CPAC and our ceremony was on the sand out back of the CPAC. The venue itself is old, a little dated in decor but can be easily dressed up with lighting and your own details.

Wonderful location near the Santa Barbara Harbor. Beautiful view of the ocean and Stearns Wharf. Lots of free and paid parking spaces nearby. Has great outdoor area for dancing and cocktails. Did not have to rent Chiavari Chairs and this is standard with the rental now. Seats 96 people perfectly.

We rented the Chase Palm Park Recreation Center for our ceremony and reception. Let me tell you all the ways this was a GREAT idea: 1) we had the wedding on the grass behind the venue, which was, oh, 20 feet from the ocean; 2) immediately after the ceremony, our guests took a few steps to the patio of the venue, where they were served cocktails and appetizers under the palm trees while we took photographs; 3) we fit 100 people comfortably into the main room for a buffet dinner and toasting, and then spent the rest of the evening dancing on the patio under the Santa Barbara stars! In short, it was everything you would imagine a Southern California wedding to be.

The Parks Dept staff, especially Leslie, was extremely easy to work with -- they were calm and collected when we were not! Everything turned out beautifully and we are grateful. Highly recommend.
