We have some of the most stunning wedding venues and honeymoon destinations on California’s central coast. So it is no surprise that as a Ventura County wedding photographer I get to be part of a lot of destination weddings! One of my favorite hidden gems of Ventura County is Ojai, a darling mountainous town with stunning Spanish architecture. Here are my favorite Ojai wedding venues for a truly timeless wedding.

Lavender Inn

Majestic oak trees, vibrant gardens, and a charming bed and breakfast are exactly what you will find at Lavender Inn! This historic wedding location embraces the cottage core aesthetic while adding magical whimsy to your big day. In addition, you will find countless stunning backdrops including ponds, waterfalls, and the nearby mountain range. Not to mention, after your ceremony and celebration you can honeymoon at the bed and breakfast for a cozy and romantic vacation. With multiple package options, you are sure to find the right fit for you and your wedding party!

The Ojai Valley Inn

For an elevated wedding day experience consider The Ojai Valley Inn. With multiple ceremony and reception spaces to choose from, your wedding vision will come to life in this elegant venue. And with wedding specialists in-house, every detail will be accounted for! Fresh redesigns, inviting color palettes, and intricate details such as hand-stenciled ceilings are sure to impress an indoor reception. And the gorgeous views of the mountains will take your breath away during an outdoor ceremony. Everything about this wedding venue is elegant and grand.

Topa Mountain Winery

One of the most delightful Ojai wedding venues has to be Topa Mountain Winery. This venue is cozy and somewhat quaint, but there are countless beautiful spots within the winery to plan special moments in! A great example was a wedding I had the privilege of capturing where the bride and groom had their first look in the prettiest corner of the vineyard. Later we captured bridal portraits as the sun glowed over the mountains in the distance. There really is beauty around every corner at this winery!

The Ojai Retreat

Ojai Retreat & Inn features beautiful views of the mountains on their 5-acre hilltop property. In addition, there are several outdoor and indoor spaces perfect for intimate weddings and receptions. With 3 outdoor spaces for ceremonies and receptions. As well as a large indoor event room. No matter rain or shine, you will have a comfortable and beautiful place to celebrate your big day! And for wedding parties who are looking for accommodations, there are 12 guest rooms and accommodations for up to 27 overnight guests.

Old Creek Ranch Winery

If you are looking for an 850 acre cattle ranch that is surrounded by grand mountains, then Old Creek Ranch Winery is the place for you! From fruit orchards to pristine landscaping. You will achieve a luxurious and down-to-earth atmosphere at this Ojai wedding venue. The red barn structures offer a rustic countryside backdrop, while the lawns accommodate large wedding parties and tents. However, if you are looking for more intimate options there are tasting rooms that are more suitable for smaller wedding parties.
