Sun & Stars Fantasy Land
We love being under the gilded sky with the Century Old Trees and the Rolling River. We are fortunate to have beautiful California weather, yet we are prepared for the weather.
We receive a year-round breeze that keeps the summer events cool. Even our August weddings are comfortable with the soothing river and the summer breeze. The reception area is full of shade for the guests.
In preparation for the rain, tents are included in your package. Heaters are also standard for our winter events.
A bit of planning and preparation makes the weather not a concern.
Thinking about where to say "I do" ?
Some may like a formal ceremony in a church setting, others a quiet hill overlooking the Vinyards or a shady place in the trees.
Maybe on the river with the trickling sounds of water and the reflection of the afternoon light.
You may choose from a variety of locations and backdrops to best suit your style.
We have multiple ceremony locations, backdrops and arches available for your "moment".
Bridal Preparation Spaces
We offer a bridal changing room and a large lounge area for the Bridal Party.
The changing area may open as early as 8 AM for all your hair and makeup needs.
The large lounge opens 3 hours before the ceremony. It is a great place for friends and family to gather while waiting for the ceremony to begin.
What about space for the gentlemen? Once the hair and makeup are completed the bride's entourage moves to the lounge area and the changing room becomes the groom's ready room.
Please remove all personal items from the ready rooms prior to your ceremony. We close these rooms after the ceremony. We do this because we want all your personal items to be safely tucked away not lost in the busy confusion.
