Garden-style ceremonies are held outdoors alongside our historic stone mansion in a garden brimming with native flora including an expansive lawn and gazebo. Vineyards surround the ceremony, while a gorgeous hundred- year tree provides shade for wedding guests.

A short walkway takes you to our Terrace Room, a secluded banquet room set into the hillside. Cocktail hour is enjoyed on the outdoor patio. After cocktail hour, guests are invited to take their seats in the Terrace Room, to begin dinner and dancing.

Our staff is ready to assist you in arranging an event to remember…from beginning to the perfect ending. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or if you would like to schedule a time to visit and tour the Elliston estate.

"My husband and I could not have chosen a better venue for our wedding. I really feel like this place is a hidden gem! Tucked away in the California hills, it is a private and beautiful location with an elegant and rustic feel. The staff were incredibly helpful throughout the whole planning process - they were quick to respond to my emails and Madeline, our day-of coordinator, took care of everything on our wedding day. The ceremony and reception went so smoothly thanks to her help! I've had multiple guests come up to me since the wedding to tell me how beautiful the venue was. I would highly recommend Elliston!" - Alexa & Trevor - April 16, 2016
