Fairytale Venues { SoCal }

Here are some of my favorite locations I discovered during my wedding venue search in Southern California.  

Casa Romantica is one of the most beautiful spanish venues you will find in southern California.  This was one of my favorite venues during my search for our perfect space.


The spanish estate sits high on top of the rocky bluffs of San Clemente with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean.  I highly recommend checking out this venue if you are looking to get married in Southern California.  It exudes pure romance and the stunning views will leave you with memorable photos to last a lifetime.

If you are looking for more of a storybook wedding with a cliffside castle nestled into the hills of Malibu, then Stone Hill Manor is your dream location.  The panoramic views stretching from Catalina island all the way to Santa Monica make this venue a fairytale dream come true.

My last favorite location is a Tustin themed vineyard tucked into the private hills of Malibu.  Malibu Rocky Oaks is a mouth-dropping spectacular vineyard that rests in the clouds on a 2,000 ft high elevated hill top looking over the Santa Monica mountains.  The 360 panoramic views are like nothing you have ever seen and will not soon forget.


The scenic winding road that leads you to the vineyard leaves you with anxious anticipation of what is around the bend.  The video doesn’t do it justice.

My groom and I decided that a vineyard wedding wasn’t our style in the end.  This is a spectacular venue to host the most extravagant of weddings, but only if you have the budget.  I strongly recommend checking this venue out as a weekend getaway or taking some girlfriends for a fun bridal party wine tasting event.

*The site location costs for this event start at $20,000 (includes some rentals)
