We’re pretty keen on this one of a kind Carpinteria based venue. Klentner Ranch will exceed your expectations with ravishing views, green fields and timeless stone buildings. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this rustic ranch is an extension of the historic Santa Barbara Polo & Raquet Club which just happens to be the third oldest polo club in the nation.
October is one of the most beautiful months in Santa Barbara and has turned into one of the most popular months for weddings due to it’s unparalleled weather. This past October, we were delighted to work at Klentner Ranch yet again, catering this stunning and elegant wedding. The photos just don’t do this once in a lifetime event justice.
The menu was one for the books - straight delicious!
