Venue Spotlight: Castle Green

Photo courtesy Castle Green website

When I first started my wedding/event planning business, I had the opportunity to coordinate a wedding reception at the historical Castle Green in Pasadena. It was an "Old-Hollywood/Red Carpet" themed wedding, and this unique landmark was the perfect setting! Check out some of the magnificent images capture by the amazing photographer Toki Cavener:

What a welcoming entrance to the grand lobby:

Most of the sitting rooms contain their original furniture and beautiful fireplaces:

Another sitting room that emanates that "old-hollywood" charm:

The breathtaking grand lobby with it's mosaic tile floors and marble staircase:

The perfect setting for an elegant affair:

The venue is on the pricey side, but for photos like these it will definitely be money well spent! A bit of caution: check with the venue regarding Pasadena's fire/candle laws. Who knew it was illegal to use real candles without obtaining a permit?! If tea lights aren't your thing, you might want to rethink your options! Nevertheless, I would give Castle Green a thumbs up simply for the ambience.

Stay tuned for photos and a post on the fantabulous wedding I was fortunate to be a part of for a very special couple: Candida & Josh!
