Featured Venue: Cambria Pines Lodge

North Coast charm with a touch of European oppulance

Set among 25 acres of lush gardens, and a Monterey pine forest, this gorgeous hilltop lodge boasts a history of European nobility and adventure. Built in the early 1920’s by a European baroness seeking adventure and fun on the rugged California coastline, built the lodge as her personal resort within visiting distance of Hearst Castle. But alas her Husband, the baron, called her back to Europe- leaving the lodge to a development company, and dashing her hopes of parties with the Hearst Family.

 

The lodge today resembles a gorgeous, modern-day cabin with a ballroom, upgraded rooms and suites, and a fire side lounge- perfect for post-event nightcaps. The grounds of Cambria Pines Lodge pay tribute to the baroness with an English garden, and rows of sculpted hedges along the garden paths. Couples love the beautiful gazebo for their ceremony, and often host cocktail parties on the adjacent patio prior to begin their receptions.

 

The Peacock Room, beautifully comes alive for indoor receptions! Trimmed in pine, the room boasts high ceilings, a moveable dance floor, and a granite-topped built in pine bar. We love working with couples to take advantage of this space with lighting and draping.

 

While this Central Coast wedding venue is bursting with picturesque locations on site for photos and gatherings, the lodge is located just minutes from the iconic Moonstone Beach- perfect for wedding party photos, or capturing the sunset.

Cambria Pines Lodge can accommodate up to 300 guests; and is perfect for weddings, gatherings, and  corporate events.

Nestled in the little town of Santa Margarita, sits one of the longest continually operating cattle ranches in California- and our featured venue this week, Santa Margarita Ranch. The ranch has become a favorite venue among couples seeking a rustic yet sophisticated style for their wedding. The 15,000 acre property located just 15 minutes from San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles; features open space, vineyards, garden spaces, a barn, and an original Disneyland steam train!

The Santa Margarita Ranch is a special venue for our coordinators, Bri and Melissa, which is why we chose this very special place as our Featured Venue of the Week! Both coordinators rave about the incredibly accommodating and helpful venue staff, versatility of the space for events from rehearsal dinners to very large weddings and corporate events, and the uniqueness of the ranch’s steam train- a huge hit for wedding photos, and entertaining guests.

Bri’s favorite part of the venue is the iconic barn and the way the sun shines through the expansive doors at the golden hour, providing a natural backdrop for amazing photos. Melissa loves the plethora of photo back drops provided by the venue- there is no shortage of photo inspiration at the ranch! Both caution cake placement in the barn, as there is a resident barn owl that adds to the charm of the historic space!

Santa Margarita Ranch can accommodate up to 1000 guests; and is perfect for weddings, events, corporate parties, and rehearsal dinners.
