When you’ve found a location, Pure Joy can help with full event planning right from the very beginning, and we are happy to work with your Coordinator, if you'd like, too. Once we’re on board we can create a full schematic of the layout, manage your timeline, all of your service needs, rentals, set up and tear down. We will also help with all of the reception details on the day. We have four full time event planners here to help you through the whole process of planning your special event.

Featured Location: Firestone Vineyards
The Firestone Winery is one of the most popular locations for weddings and for many other special events in the Santa Barbara Wine Country. We have done countless weddings at this Winery and they are consistently magical. First, the stunning barrel room (pictured above) makes for a lovely reception hall. There are several locations on site for wedding ceremonies, all of which boast fantastic views of the surrounding wine country. Concerning cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing, the staff at Firestone has special events down to a science - they really never miss a beat. This is one of those wedding venues where can really count on them to take excellent care of you on your special day.
More About This Location
Chase Palm Park Carousel
A festive open-air wedding location right across from Santa Barbara's famous East Beach. With the charming antique Carousel as a back drop on one end and a huge fountain on the other, the wedding pictures from this outdoor venue are always vibrant and original. Although it is a public park, as a wedding venue it is far more private than you'd expect. The lawn gives it a wonderful garden feel and it is impeccably maintained. Existing lighting and restrooms make this an affordable location for weddings of any size. Proximity to various top-rated Santa Barbara hotels is also a plus.

Santa Barbara Historical Museum
One of our favorite historic Santa Barbara wedding venues, the Historical Museum is full of rustic Spanish style. The Museum grounds are perfect for large wedding receptions and ceremonies. The property also offers the Casa Corvarubias, built in 1817, it is the last provincial seat of the Mexican Government and the Penthouse for more intimate events. Very convenient location, right in the central downtown area, but also effectively private and closed off from the public.
