Rancho La Patera & Stow House
I worked with Dacia and she was great. She was able to get me a discounted price on the venue. Everything was super nice, and the grass was trimmed and everything was just perfect.
Our wedding turned out amazing! and this location made it rustic and...
Stow House is a true gem for a wedding venue. I had the perfect fairy tale wedding, and it would not have been possible without the gorgeous setting Stow House offers. It is so classic and natural. The best part is that you can be very creative with the space--with both small and large weddings. The cost of the venue is by far the best value in Santa Barbara County without a doubt. I searched multiple venue sites, and all were at least double the cost of Stow House (and not nearly as beautiful). Dacia, the event coordinator, is an absolute joy to work with--very friendly and attentive. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my entire experience with Stow House.
I have had several wonderful weddings at the Stow House. It is beautiful yet has slightly rustic feel with lots of fabulous trees and an extended grass area. Dacia and her staff are wonderful and easy to work with.
My favorite thing about photographing a wedding at the Stow house are all the different areas for photography. From historic architecture to well manicured green areas and golden fields, it's got the range of backdrops for dramatic and romantic wedding photos. Being great for photography puts it on my list as one of SB favorite venues.
Imagine being married under the redwood tree the Stows received in 1872 for their first anniversary or on the steps of the Gothic Revival mansion that sits beside it. Imagine strolling over to Lake Los Carneros to for a private moment or tossing your bouquet beneath the grandest bird of paradise your guests have ever seen.
Imagine your wedding at the lovely, historic gardens of Rancho La Patera.
