Fallbrook Wedding Venue
530 Stewart Canyon Road
Fallbrook, California 92028
Who wouldn’t love to have a luxurious private estate all to themselves for their wedding? Most of us can’t afford such a pricey indulgence, so it’s lucky that there’s Los Willows Garden Estate and Vineyard, a 55-acre venue in the hills of San Diego. Los Willows offers the lush splendor of a garden oasis, along with upscale amenities like a full-service salon, gourmet cuisine, deluxe accommodations, and superb service—all for a surprisingly reasonable price tag. What’s more, Los Willows’ experienced coordinators oversee each detail of your dream wedding. And with only one event at a time, yours will get all the attention—and privacy—it deserves.
You’ll wed at a beautifully lit, treelined meadow or a lakeside garden gazebo, where the bride has a choice of ceremony entrances: a traditional one down the garden aisle, a show-stopping arrival via Los Willows’ signature bridal boat ride, or an upgrade to a vintage Rolls Royce. For brides who opt for the boat, here’s how the scene unfolds: guests wait expectantly alongside a serene spring-fed lake. Then, a bell atop the wedding gazebo peals and all eyes turn as the boat glides toward the crowd carrying precious cargo—you, the bride. Attendants help you disembark, and you walk down a bricked aisle … . After that “first kiss,” you and your new husband reboard for a celebratory champagne cruise.
Meanwhile, friends and family gather for the cocktail hour in another scenic outdoor area with a built-in illuminated bar and a cozy stone hearth, as the sky makes its enchanting transition from sunset to starry night and twinkling white lights sparkle throughout the grounds. Receptions are equally captivating, staged inside a lovely climate-controlled tent pavilion. An elegantly draped ceiling boasts a breathtaking six-foot Swarovski crystal chandelier, casting its soft glow on the polished mahogany dance floor. Guests dine on gourmet cuisine, courtesy of the in-house caterer. Whether you choose a sit-down or a buffet dinner, the chef is happy to customize your menu, including ethnic specialties. After the bouquet toss, everyone says their farewells as you and your groom are whisked away (in a vintage Rolls Royce if you choose!) … but chances are you won’t be going very far.
That’s because most couples spend their wedding night at Los Willows’ exclusive hilltop Villa. Reserved just for the newlyweds and their wedding party, it offers a stunning vantage from which to survey the secluded, peaceful estate grounds below. A favorite pastime here is sipping Los Willows’ private label wine while strolling among the grapevines of the adjoining vineyard. Each of the Villa’s guest rooms features Tuscan-inspired décor with trompe l’oeil art on the walls, a plush king-size bed with down comforter, and whirlpool tub. A manager is on hand to ensure that you’re properly pampered, even serving a homemade breakfast on the Villa’s back patio near a 60-foot cascading waterfall.
Clearly, the staff at this estate has gone to great lengths to design an exceptional, all-inclusive wedding venue that will make you feel like a treasured member of the Los Willows family.
