By love | January 31, 2017 | 0 Comments

Your wedding day celebration will be one of the most magical days of your life! The environment you choose is a reflection of you and your love’s style and how your two souls merge. Your dream ceremony and celebration will be brought to mind for years to come.

The preparation is long, tedious and filled with details requiring your dedication and attention. As much work as it will be to assemble, the efforts beforehand to make this day a special one is meaningful and purposeful.

One of the most significant decisions upfront is the location of your wedding. There are many options to consider and in this blog we share special wedding venues we love!

Kenwood Inn & Spa

In the Valley of the Moon, under a brilliant Sonoma sky, Kenwood Inn and Spa is an award-winning destination where the wedding of your dreams awaits. Whether a romantic fairytale reception of up to 75 guests, or an intimate gathering of your closest friends, Kenwood Inn and Spa can help you create a wine country day that you will never forget.



Kennolyn’s two adjoining properties in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains of California’s central coast, where majestic redwood trees provide an awe-inspiring backdrop for events.  Quiet and secluded yet easily accessible, we are less than 90 minutes from the San Francisco Bay Area and just a few minutes drive off historic Highway 1.

Whether planning a wedding, a milestone birthday or anniversary, or a corporate retreat, our guests and their enjoyment is a great source of pride and reward for us. Our estate provides numerous venues for private events; some guests enjoy celebrating at our old, historic barn, while others choose to gather under one of our expansive, regal oak trees. Still others like to celebrate in our elegant barrel or bottle aging rooms by candlelight.

At the Kimpton Canary, we have everything necessary to make our Santa Barbara wedding venue the perfect backdrop to the beginning of your happily-ever-afters. Mediterranean flourishes like fountains, hand-painted tiles and wrought-iron chandeliers accent our seven gorgeous spaces that ooze romance. So whether you’re looking for a formal ballroom setting or the relaxed California style of our rooftop pool for your Santa Barbara wedding, we can make your wedding dreams a reality.

Castle Farms Wedding

Loeb Farms was modeled after the stone barns and castles found in Normandy, France. At its peak the farm was the largest employer in Charlevoix County, John VanHaver purchased one hundred acres of the original Loeb Farms property and renamed it Castle VanHaver. Open to the public in 1966, it was an art gallery, with a working artist studio on site. Many pieces from this time period are on display throughout the Castle. Linda Mueller purchased Castle Farms in 2001 and began an extensive restoration project. The first Castle Farms wedding was held in 2002 and the first Grand Bridal Expo was in 2004.
