One of the benefits of booking your wedding at Kestrel Park is the privacy they have to offer you. This gorgeous Santa Barbara location is a boutique venue and only books a certain number of events per year. Resorts are typically busy with tourists and guests coming in and out and with multiple event spaces, some resorts are even able to host multiple weddings per day. At Kestrel Park, you’ll be the only event on the property, ensuring your privacy and a really unique experience!
No matter the location of the property, every scene sets a picture-perfect backdrop for the wedding ceremony, reception, or simply as the background of the wedding day portraits. Kestrel Park’s Dovecote and 17th-century style barn have an unparalleled level of character and charm to provide while the Ceremony and Reception Lawn offer wide-open greenery and stunning mountain views. The property’s gardens featuring fruit trees, a vegetable garden, roses, lavender, and more, are a lovely space for guests to explore during cocktail hour. The Sycamore Allée sets a breathtaking scene for a reception at long banquet-style tables, alfresco style! Additional benefits of the property include a beautiful bride’s and groom’s quarters so couples can enjoy getting ready with their wedding party in the comfort of Kestrel Park.
