California Barn Weddings {Vintage, Country, Chic}

When you think of California wedding venues, barns don't typically come to mind. The oh so sought after barn inspired, vintage weddings are often hard to find in the land of sunny beaches and ritzy estates. There are a few, however, and each one is unique, charming, and absolutely perfect if you are seeking that rustic, vintage barn theme.

Vineyard Ranch & Barn - Glen Ellen

Cabernet grapes hang heavy on rows of vines disappearing towards the eastern mountains, and a long view of Sonoma Valley stretches before you. This is only one of the lovely scenes you see as you survey Vineyard Ranch’s idyllic surroundings and consider all the possibilities. 

The 140-year-old ranch is spread out over 70 acres, with horses roaming the property amidst olive trees, vineyards and organic gardens. Numerous areas on the estate lend themselves to events, especially the contemporary barn and gardens. Included with this stunning setting are the services of one of the Bay Area’s most elite planners, Julie Atwood Events (JAE). Their team offers complete wedding planning from start to finish, as well as site tours of other exclusive properties for rehearsal parties, brunches, and other events.

Strawberry Farms Golf Course - Irvine

Strawberry Farms Golf Club is nestled in the canyons of Irvine at the end of a white picket fence lined road and is a unique and beautiful location for any event. Our staff is committed to providing exceptional service. Our policy is to book only one reception per day, making yours our priority.

From casual to formal, our Big Red Barn offers an ambiance wonderfully different from the typical banquet room setting. The finished interior includes twinkle lights strung across the wood beam ceiling, organza draped pillars and carpeting. It easily accommodates 100 to 250 guests.

The Terrace Veranda is an open-air covered patio that is surrounded by white picket fences and flowering gardens. This area accommodates up to 80 guests with additional seating available on the adjacent lawn.

The Red Horse Barn - Huntington Beach

The Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center is situated on 25 acres of beautiful, sea-breezed land overlooking Huntington Central Park. It is home to 420 privately owned horses and surrounded by 185 acres of public trails. We provide a healthy and highly serviceable environment for horse owners to safely enjoy their horses, while also providing the public with a scenic setting in which to benefit from the rewarding experience of being with horses.

Romantic, intimate, and located next to our exclusive 10-horse stable, The Red Horse Barn is a rustic, yet decadent setting for your next special event! The spacious outdoor lawn area can accommodate more than 300 guests for both a ceremony and reception, or for any other special occasion! There is also a large Bridal Suite and Groom’s Room available.

Surrounded by beautiful landscaping and situated atop the equestrian center, our new event venue offers a bird’s eye view to the many equestrian amenities we have to offer.

    Check out the Motte Historical Museum in Menifee, CA they have a Barn Wedding Venue.

  10. A ton of wedding venues in the state have both indoor and outdoor spaces for events and receptions. I can't stand going to weddings in a church gym or some other nondescript space with no windows anymore. I work on enough weddings in Utah that I know a good one when I see one. These venues are awesome.

  11. You are right about the way it looks. I would encourage anyone to do that for their wedding. the venue looks good- although you wouldn't think it at first. Couples will enjoy spacious venues. Space does not predict every will enjoy the setting in every circumstance but it can be a gauge of certain things.

    For example, you will be able to cater to their family with everything at the same location, and stay within a manageable budget and lots of other things.

  12. Another reason why couples prefer having outdoor weddings is that the affair turns out to be a lot less lavish and formal in nature. outdoor wedding venues

  13. The moment when bride and groom accept each other as their life partners on their wedding day, they will be called a lovely couple.However weddings differ from culture to culture and also from generation to generation. For the years to come, the wedding traditions might change, but the transition would be slower.....
