Why We Like This Place
The ornate rooftops of this inviting Pasadena landmark soar high above Old Pasadena, advertising Castle Green as a unique place to hold a special event. Once a posh hotel, this grand 1898 building is designed in an unusual style called Moorish Colonial, an arresting mixture of European and Middle Eastern design elements. Several towers capped with red domes and wrought-iron bal-conies lend the Castle its handsome and distinctive silhouette. Also of visual interest is a whimsical bridge that extends from the main façade and connects the two wings of the historic building.
If you get married here, your ceremony can be held in the Ballroom or in the surrounding garden, which is landscaped with tall, graceful palms and a tranquil fountain that trickles into a lily pool, evoking a feel of Old World romance. Recently restored, the Castle’s interior displays a wealth of late Victorian splendor. A pair of massive oak doors invites guests into a lofty lobby with a sweeping marble staircase and crystal chandelier. To the left you’ll find a cluster of impressive “sitting” rooms, including the spa-cious Main Salon and the circular Moorish Room. These now possess their original, turn-of-the-century colors of deep rose, soft green, and ochre. The original antique furnishings, warm wood mouldings, and extraordinary fireplaces complete the lovely and singular décor. A grand hallway takes you to the Ballroom, distinguished by faux onyx wainscoting and a series of tall windows set into a curved wall, giving the space a circular feel. The room is in shades of cream, with a high ceiling, pale stone-tiled floors and Irish hand-finished lace curtains. Further enhancing the entire main floor is lavish Oriental-style carpeting that replicates the beautiful colors and patterns of the 1898 original. Just imagine holding your reception amid all this nostalgic elegance!
Weddings at Castle Green enjoy exclusive access to this one-of-a-kind private estate. Actually, Castle Green is an intriguing place for any type of event: corporate gala, fundraiser, family reunion, or retirement party—but don’t take our word for it. This historic treasure is a cornucopia of visual delights, so arrange for a tour and see for yourself!
