Happy birthday to E.W.E!  We are very excited to announce that we have officially launched our new Estate Weddings and Events website just in time for our fourth birthday!

Not only is the site more user friendly and visually appealing, we have added a lot of exciting new features.  Estate Weddings and Events is now not only a source for exclusive estate locations, but is now a resource tool for private estate rentals including new blogs, noteworthy events, and the option to search for estate locations.

Our Cool Summer Nights industry event at the Bali Gardens is closely approaching, and we are lucky enough to be working with some of the very best vendors to make this the best (and most delicious) event!  We will be having Stone Brewing Co., Authentic Flavors and Maison catering the event, and the delicious treats of Tailored Sweets and Sweet Cheeks Baking Company.  Planning this event, as well as our delicious tasting with Behind the Scenes Catering this week, has really helped us get our creative juices flowing (and our stomachs growling) coming up with creative ways to cater your next event!

Have you ever watched those competitive reality cooking shows on television and thought that you would be great at whipping up a dish on the fly with some mystery ingredient?  Get your fellow foodies together to have a cooking competition at one of our estates!

Not into competitive cooking, but still want to try your hand at some new recipes?  Hire a chef to come to your estate event to teach you new techniques and recipes to share with your friends and family, and then savor the meal you created!

Plan an around the world buffet, with a dish from each part of the globe.  Want to make it a bit more interesting?  Hire several different catering companies that specialize in different types of cuisine to get more authentic dishes and let your guests choose their favorite dish.

If you haven’t seen the amazing things that are coming out of the dessert world right now, I suggest you check out Tailored Sweets and Sweet Cheeks’ websites right away!  Have a wine and/or beer pairing at an estate with their amazing desserts.  Or have a more interactive event with several vendors with different types of sweets!

The sustainable food movement and farm to table events are becoming increasingly more desired in the event industry.  Our Sebastopol Sanctuary Estate near Sonoma, California has its own pinot noir vineyards, lavender farm, olive trees, and you can create gourmet hors d’oeuvres made with ingredients from the estate’s own garden.

Over the weekend, two of our coordinators were treated to a weekend of gourmet dining, breathtaking views of the Santa Barbara skyline at the Abbey Estate and a handful of tours through newly acquired properties. Needless to say, we are positively thrilled to individually introduce each of these wonderful architectural gems.

Featured here is the Gridley Ranch located in Ojai, California. This beautifully cozy yet remarkable property is situated on 40+ acres of grasslands in the rolling California hills. The women of Estate Weddings and Events were greeted with sunshine, a light breeze sweeping from the West and a pocket full of freshly picked oranges. The property includes a poignantly aged barn, a series of guest cottages scattered about the land accessible via stone pathways, and a collection of tangerine, lemon, plum and nectarine trees to perfectly accent the surrounding grounds.

The main house, available for overnight rental, boasts two native stone fireplaces, intricately designed tile work and ornately crafted aesthetic details to evoke true California luxury.  The design innovatively combines the rustic wild West and the elegant simplicity of shabby chic luxury. The interior space is dripped in crisp white walls, couches and full lounge chairs accented by equestrian keepsakes, striking throw rugs and steer wall mounts. Elegant French doors open onto a wrap around porch with an outdoor barbecue as well as expansive fire pit, ideal for lazy afternoons peeling nectarines and gazing out at the beautiful rouge sky at twilight.

If you are interested in booking your next event at this serene Ojai retreat, give us a call and we would love to discuss the various ways this unbelievable property can be utilized. Whether you are looking for a weekend getaway with friends and family or the ideal backdrop to your dream wedding, the Gridley Ranch offers more than just a venue, it’s peace of mind.

Nearly a week has passed since the global population celebrated Earth Day. One of our favorite holidays here at Estate Weddings and Events, we can’t help but be overjoyed with the mass amount of love this great planet of ours has been getting! Over the last year, the Earth Day Network pledged to register one million acts of environmental deeds, organizations or groups dedicated to helping our planet. Surpassing their goals and now projecting one BILLION by 2012, we’re finding that global companies are not the only ones bitten by the Eco-Bug. A very green and inspirational trend is beginning to sweep the wedding planning industry. Estate Weddings and Events is no stranger to “greening” any event, and are more than happy to do so! We’ve already shown you the magic of a personal and organic vegetable garden at the Sebastopol Sanctuary, now we would like to show you a few amazing photos of this Modern Tree House estate located in the Hollywood Hills. The property is situated amongst a lush backdrop of forestry, the beautiful Los Angeles Skyline and also happens to be LEED gold certified.

LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system,  providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.” – U.S. Green Building Council

Enjoy a relaxing weekend by the pool, and rest easy knowing your vacation rental is doing more for the environment than you ever thought possible! The venue is complete with solar panels, denim insulation, fully recycled steel, an Energy Star kitchen and home appliances built with nontoxic Low VOC materials. Available for weekends, weddings and festivities of all kinds, the only footprint your event will leave are those of your dancing guests!
