A nationally registered historic monument, Castle Green is over 120 years old, and was built in the Victorian era by Col. George G. Green of the Patent Medicine Business. Designed by architect Frederick Roehrig, the structure was originally designed as the annex for the famed Hotel Green to house wealthy individuals coming to visit sunny California and reside in luxury resort fashion. With many of the original features, most rooms incorporate the Moorish Revival style, with the exterior boasting the Mediterranean Revival style. Its rooms have housed vacationing tycoons and presidents, and the grounds provide popular photography and filming locations today.

My husband and I absolutely fell in love with Castle Green as soon as we stepped inside the front doors. Don't get me wrong, the venue is stunning from the outside as well but it isn't until you step inside that you feel yourself taken back in time. The venues is kept in immaculate condition which is impressive considering that almost everything inside is vintage or an original. Because it was so beautifully decorated inside already, we didn't have to worry about bringing in our own decorations. Also don't feel limited to the vintage feel of the venue. We had a lot of fun with our wedding and used a lot of both vintage element and modern colorful components. The beauty of the venue really speaks for itself.
The staff there at Castle Green are AMAZING! They really made us feel so comfortable as soon as we walked in and they really were an integral part of our team through the whole wedding planning process. I really can't say enough about how genuine both Dior and Rosalinda were in wanting to create a memorable and truly unique wedding experience for us. If it weren't for those two ladies, it really wouldn't have been the same.

Wonderful for your day + more!
So first thing you must know is that you get a HUGE first floor area of Castle Green for the wedding. The main ballroom holds the reception (or ceremony + reception), the parlors for guests to mingle, the lawns to play games and more mingling. It's amazing! It's also basically completely decorated as it is, so we didn't even bother to add extras, but I'm sure you can. Dior the events manager was wonderful in helping us with our desired wedding date's availability and guiding us through the entire process. The list of preferred vendors were also amazing and know the venue from top to bottom. We highly recommend choosing their preferred vendors for the smoothest day you could ever imagine!

Working with Dior and Rosalinda was an absolute pleasure. They really are concerned with putting a bride at ease in the process of wedding planning. I always felt as ease after speaking to Rosalinda on the phone.
