  • Restoration Oaks Farm - weddings and wedding parties,
    1980 US Highway 101, Gaviota, CA. Phone: 805-686-5718. Alternate phone: 805-683-2143. Email: events@restorationoaks.com. Open: Call for availability and hours. Directions: Email, or call or see this page. Located just 35 miles north of Santa Barbara, Restoration Oaks Ranch is a rustic and outdoor wedding location like no other. The Ranch is just under 1,000 acres, with picturesque areas for both your ceremony and reception. Massive native Oaks, Sycamores, rolling hills, and natural sage cover the property. Restoration Oaks also owns a beautiful 4 bedroom/3 bath Ranch House with a smaller, 2 bedroom/1 bath Guest Bungalow that is included in our complete wedding package. Couples often reserve the houses before and after their wedding to accommodate their wedding party, family, and other guests. We are essentially a "blank slate" venue—we give you more latitude to tailor your wedding to your personal taste and budget parameters, while you are required to bring in the majority of event essentials (portable restrooms, chairs, tables, etc.) Our venue is intimate and cozy for small weddings of 40 up to 250 guests, but best served in the 80 to 140 guest count range. One of the unique aspects of Restoration Oaks Ranch is that we offer accommodations for up to 22 guests in our Guest Ranch House, Cookhouse & Bungalow.
