It's no surprise that so many people get married in Santa Barbara. This California beach town is a lovers' paradise. Fresh ocean breezes, swaying palms, sunny skies and glorious sunsets are par for the course here.
Regular folks tie the knot in Santa Barbara every weekend. And so do celebrities. Drew Barrymore got married here, so did Laurence Olivier and Fergie (not to each other, of course). Even Kim Kardashian celebrated her nuptials in Santa Barbara... the second time around.
But, wait, dear reader! We may be putting the cart before the horse. Not everyone who visits Santa Barbara is getting hitched.
