Just minutes from downtown Santa Barbara and nestled at the base of the foothills in the exclusive community of Montecito is a charming wedding location which seems more like a mysterious “secret garden” than a county park. Winding wooded paths and romantic nooks abound, always leading the curious wanderer to a new and delightful discovery. Steal a kiss under the vine laden redwood arbor, take a moment to dream of life together beside a winding stream… every turn holds a new discovery!
Various areas throughout the park provide idyllic settings for your wedding ceremony, from expansive lawns to secluded palm shaded gardens. Ample picnic areas also offer an ideal setting for a garden themed wedding reception. Truly one of our favorite wedding locations, Manning Park is a Montecito Weddings treasure!
Directions: From Highway 101, exit at San Ysidro Rd. Head towards the mountains. You will pass a school, and then the park’s sign and driveway will be on your left. Enter, and the driveway winds around through the estate until you come to the parking lot at the end.
