At the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara, inclusivity isn’t just a buzzword – it’s a way of life. As Unitarians, we hold dear to our eight principles, with inclusivity standing front and center. Our doors are open wide to people of all cultures, faiths, religions, sexual orientations, and ethnicities, inviting them to celebrate love in its many beautiful forms.

Embracing Diversity:

In a world that often seeks to divide, we strive to unite. Our sanctuary is a safe haven where love knows no bounds. Whether you’re saying “I do” under the glow of a chuppah, surrounded by the vibrant sounds of Mariachi musicians, or honoring ancient traditions with a Tibetan mandala, our space is yours to craft a celebration that reflects your unique heritage and beliefs.

Raw Space Rental:

Our “raw space” rental option empowers couples to unleash their creativity and design a wedding that honors their cultures and traditions. Whether exchanging vows in our serene sanctuary or dancing the night away in our Parish Hall and courtyard, the possibilities are endless. From the colorful hues of an Indian Sugar Ceremony to the solemn beauty of a Jewish chuppah, each wedding is a testament to the rich tapestry of human experience.

A Safe Space for All:

We proudly embrace same-sex weddings, providing a sanctuary where love knows no bounds and acceptance reigns supreme. Here, couples can express their love freely, surrounded by a community that celebrates diversity and equality.

Beyond the Ceremony:

Our commitment to inclusivity doesn’t end at the altar. Throughout the planning process, our dedicated team works tirelessly to ensure every couple feels valued, respected, and supported. From assisting with logistics to recommending LGBTQ+-friendly vendors, we’re here to make your wedding journey as smooth and joyous as possible.
