Beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces!

We held our wedding at the Castle Green in February 2022, and could not have picked a more incredible venue. We fell in love with the stunning garden, amazing old tree, and beautiful architecture. From the beautiful lobby and salon rooms to the outdoor spaces to the rooftop, there were so many gorgeous places to take photos. Our guests were all amazed but the historical venue and how beautifully it had been preserved. Tatiana and her team at the Castle Green were so incredibly kind, helpful, and wonderful to work with before, during, and after the big day. Highly recommend!

Gorgeous & Convenient

We just had our wedding at the Castle and it was PERFECT. Tatiana is the absolute best - kind, thoughtful and quick to answer an email! I had my heart SET on a different venue, but after touring the Castle and meeting Tatiana, my fiancee and I both knew it was the right choice for us. Our guests were so impressed and had the best time. It's also in a great location for out of town guests. There are several hotels in Old Pasadena and it's a fun area for friends and family to enjoy. Oh also the day of event staff was amazing and thoughtful as well. It's been such a joy working with everyone at the Castle and our wedding was such a beautiful good time.
