We had our ceremony on the Bluffs and our reception in Singleton Palilion. We absolutely loved the being able to look out at the ocean and then have an intimate, grassy setting for the reception. We did unfortunately have some issues getting the DJ we wanted, because they are VERY particular with their sound rules. They also do not allow any fire up there, which sadly meant no real candles or sparklers. But. Other than that, they were easy to work with, definitely in a good price range, and the day turned out exactly how we wanted it.

We chose Godric Grove at Elings Park after visiting seven or eight popular Santa Barbara/Montecito wedding venues and it was by far our favorite venue. Elings is such a naturally beautiful park. It is really set up for events and if you’re imagining an outdoor wedding – this is the place for you. For one thing, Santa Barbra generally has phenomenal weather, which Elings really allows you to take advantage of, and for another Elings has the best views of Santa Barbara’s natural beauty that you could ever imagine. On one side you have the ocean and the city and on the other the mountains. In all the venues we visited we did not find a single other one that so classically captured what makes Santa Barbara such an idyllic place to get married. Working with the Elings staff was also very simple. You pay the balance in full to secure your wedding day and then you’re largely done. There is an amphitheater that many couples use for their ceremony and the actual grove is great for cocktail hour, while we used the deck for dinner. It’s really a great venue that maximizes space and allows you to have your guests flow around while staying centralized. The park also has great restroom facilities which means you don’t have to deal with porta-potties like some outdoor venues. One of the great things about Elings is that you also get the venue for the whole day once you rent it so you really can get your money’s worth by having your whole wedding at this one beautiful location. Overall I would say having an outdoor wedding here was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding, it really made the day.

Godric Grove was the perfect setting for both our ceremony and reception. With ocean views on both sides of the park and plenty of room for guests, it provided an incredible response from all of our guests. The gorgeous trees created the perfect backdrop for everything.

Loved Godric Grove as the ceremony and reception site for my wedding. Beautiful, unique location, a place I look forward to returning to. Exceptional value in the off season. Incredible views and grounds. Convenient location. Thank you Elings!

We found the park nestled in the hills. Gorgeous views and a peak of the ocean. We were able to work with the catering company of our choice and bring in our own alcohol. Loved our venue choice! It made for some wonderful pictures!

Picking Elings Park as our wedding venue was one of the best decisions we made! We had our ceremony on the lawn and our reception on the deck in the Godric Grove. Because of the gorgeous scenery (mountain/ocean views ) I didn't have to go over the top trying to decorate because the space was already so beautiful!

We had our wedding at Elings Park June 29th 2013. We used the South Bluffs, for our ceremony and Godrick Grove for our reception. It was by far the most beautiful location. I spent 14 months looking for a venue, and when I drove to the top of the South Bluffs I was amazed. It was breathtaking. They have a picture on their website that does not do it justice. The cliff overlooks the ocean, and gives a peekaboo view of the waves at the beach below. It is truly an amazing location. My ceremony was beautiful. We used the deck at Godrick Grove. The view is also stunning.
My recommendations for summer brides. Make sure you provide a tent for the bluffs, as there is no shade, and get an experienced transportation vendor. The park is truly a wonderful place to have your wedding. Their is ample parking available and their staff is very accommodating. My wedding was wonderful. So happy that I chose Elings Park .

This venue is just stunning. We got married in Godric Grove and our guests just raved about the beauty of the place. My husband and I fell in love with the spot the moment we saw it, and it certainly delivered! New management was very helpful, and incredibly responsive. Only snafu is with their sound vendor who has to approve you DJ/musician, but we simply dropped the issue and moved on. The place is great. Absolutely perfect spot to get married.

Elings Park was great as a wedding venue. We had our ceremony and reception at Godric Grove which was beautiful. The weather was perfect which gave us ocean views on both sides of the park. We received so many comments on how beautiful the site was.

What we loved about Elingss that we were able to select our own vendor and bring in our own alcohol, which saved a lot of money! We would recommend Elings Park to anyone!

We rented Godric Grove at Elings Park for our daughter's wedding. It is a large space, composed of 3 separate areas: a deck, a lawn and an amphitheater. We used all 3. The ceremony was held in the amphitheater, the pre-ceremony reception smoking area on the deck and the reception under a tent on the lawn. If you have fewer guests than we did, you could probably fit the reception on the deck.

The rental fee was very reasonable and they were willing to negotiate. They also rent cushions for the deck benches and pads for the amphitheater. We used the deck cushions, but not the others because they weren't attractive and we weren't planning a long ceremony.

Things to know:

If you are planning to go into the evening, as we did, know that there are no lights in the bathrooms or the sink area. We had to bring those in (thanks, LBPS!). There are few electrical outlets in the space and we had to rent a generator and more lights. These things can start to add up so...
We had to end at 10PM due to city noise restrictions.

But, you can't beat the setting. Harbor and city views, beautiful oak canopies, wonderful light, especially late afternoon in the summer.
