Why You'll Love This Place
A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue ReviewRead More Show Less
The view from The Highlands Estate's hilltop perch stretches out for miles across the Anderson and Alexander Valleys, with rolling hills, vineyards, and farms creating a pastoral scene that seems lifted out of an Impressionist painting. Deer, wild turkeys, and a variety of birds are frequent visitors to the property, and lucky guests may also receive an enthusiastic welcome from the Estate's resident pups, Daisy and Henry.
As your guests begin to arrive for your wedding, they're directed to an ample parking area near the base of the Estate's 21 green acres. From there, they take a short, pretty stroll up a gently sloped path past Syrah vines, olive and fruit trees, toward a grassy ceremony site facing the valleys and mountains. (A courtesy shuttle is available for those who don't wish to walk.) The area is comfortably shaded in the afternoon, and a four-posted wooden arbor on a small platform functions as your altar or chuppah. Rock speakers placed around the lawn's perimeter provide music and sound amplification, ensuring an unobstructed view.
Once you've exchanged vows, The Four Seasons Barn stands ready to host a memorable reception. This spacious structure has a corrugated metal roof and siding, a high ceiling with exposed ductwork and wagon wheel chandeliers, and gorgeous farm tables, handmade by the owner. For an open-air cocktail hour or dinner, there's a large patio strung with market lights just outside.
The barn blends the best of rustic charm and modern conveniences—it's insulated and climate-controlled, with indoor restrooms, two catering areas (one inside, one outside), handicapped parking, and a sweetly decorated bonus room that may be used as a dressing suite, ketubah signing area, or babysitting space.
