Are you looking for the most incredible, sought-after, over the top gorgeous and oh-so luxurious wedding venues that the California Central Coast has to offer? Well, you’re in luck. The following five venues tucked between San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara will make your jaw drop and your guests rave! In no particular order here 5 Central Coast Luxury Wedding Venues that are worth checking out.
1. Kestrel Park
As soon as I arrived at Kestrel Park I felt like I had been transported to the English countryside. This 100-acre property complete with gardens and stables is the perfect setting for a celebration. This property feels like it’s worlds away but it’s really just a quick 35-minute drive from Santa Barbara. Kestrel Park is located in Santa Ynez, CA.
Cosmo magazine just named Sunstone Villa the top wedding venue in all of California. And guess what? I’m not surprised. Sunstone Villa is a favorite in part because of the surrounding views and the iconic villa (built with limestone imported all the way from France). I love the fact that it’s less than 30 minutes from my house!!
Next up on our list is Greengate Ranch and Vineyards. This old dairy farm turned luxury wedding venue is tucked just outside of San Luis Obispo. I’m in love with this venue because of the huge property and how many different options it gives to each couple. You can get married behind the Ranch House, in the Stables, by the pond (like Amy and Tim!), or under the walnut tree! Bonus, they only host one wedding a weekend making it the perfect location for your destination wedding.
There’s no surprise why I had to include the San Ysidro Ranch on this list. The picturesque hotel is equal parts charm and luxury and I’m in love. Let the backlit blooms that grace the entrance guide you inside to the meticulously manicured grounds. Plus, plenty of A-list celebs have tied the knot here too!
