A Luxury Event Planning, Design and Floristry Experience in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Beyond

Venue Spotlight: The Hotel Californian


Last week we had the chance to visit Santa Barbara's brand new beautiful venue - The Hotel Californian. We thought it was only fitting that we also shine a little spotlight on them because we were so head over heels after meeting them and learning all that this property had to offer!


The Hotel Californian features Spanish Colonial Revival architecture and modern Moorish interior décor from one of our favorite celebrity designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. This seaside destination features a rooftop pool and event deck providing panoramic views of the coastline and the Santa Ynez Mountains. Not to mention its 2,850 sq. ft. ballroom, together with an adjacent 4,500 sq. ft. plaza, a 3,670 sq. ft. rooftop event deck and five flexible meeting rooms with private patios make this place the perfect location for your next event or wedding! Farm-to-table catering and craft cocktails featuring fresh, local produce and provisions will be sure to delight and complement the space.

Impeccable architecture and design, warm service, ocean views and inspired cuisine set the stage for your big day. They only do one wedding a day so the exclusivity is a nice touch. We can't wait to host your next event or wedding here. Contact us today and we'll make your dream event happen at The Hotel Californian!
