Situated at the gateway to the Santa Monica Mountains, at the top of a scenic road that heightens expectations as you ascend, MountainGate does not disappoint. The country club—the jewel of a private residential development—is a breath of fresh air for couples seeking panoramic views and a location that's convenient to both Beverly Hills and the Valley.

Fronted by a cobblestone entryway and a white porte-cochère, the clubhouse is embraced by a grove of tall conifers and native trees. The building evokes Frank Lloyd Wright's aesthetic, with its geometric configuration and interior use of natural wood and glass. In contrast to the angular architectural lines, the entry walkway is surrounded by cascading waterfalls, ferns, bougainvillea, azaleas, birds of paradise, and other tropical plants. It's a calming and inviting environment, and guests take time to appreciate it before stepping into the building's foyer. Needless to say, this gorgeous setting is a favorite for individual or group photos.

The best spot for outdoor ceremonies is a picturesque, perfectly manicured tee box at the edge of an expansive golf course that constitutes MountainGate's backyard. The ceremony site, which overlooks a serene panorama of rolling hills, is shaded by a cluster of birch trees.

Indoor receptions are held in the club's newly renovated event space, which is beautifully designed in neutral tones with a vaulted ceiling and grand chandeliers. Wraparound floor-to-ceiling windows and a light-filled atrium frame wonderful views of the Garden Terrace's walls of greenery, the verdant golf course, and the Santa Monica Mountains.

MountainGate is known for its outdoor garden areas. The North Lawn, set with cocktails tables and hors d'oeuvres prepared by the on-site chef, is ideal for mingling. Afterwards, guests head to the romantic Garden Terrace to continue the festivities. Lined with trees, flowers, and a wall of greenery, it's a lovely canvas on which to create whatever style reception you envision. At night, bistro string lights and a sky full of glittering stars provide a glowing finishing touch.

In addition to the smart architecture and attractive landscaping, what really makes a MountainGate wedding so memorable is the hospitable attitude that prevails among staffers: Everyone goes out of his or her way to make your event feel special. And, thanks to the club's policy of hosting only one wedding at a time, you'll receive the personal attention that every couple deserves.
