    Perfect Barn Venue

    The Dana Powers Barn is the perfect barn venue. We wanted a simple outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour and a barn reception, without necessarily having to build a wedding 100% from scratch. The Dana Powers House delivered. The venue is turnkey because certain basics (e.g., chairs, tables) are included, and decor can easily be rented through the venue owner's rental company, Embellish Vintage Rentals. There are endless locations for photos, and the lighting inside the barn cannot be beat, day or night. All of our other vendors had nothing but praise for the venue. The venue owner, Judi, and her team are experienced, flexible and helpful before and day of. You can make of this venue what you want, and trend more toward casual, or more toward elegant, or anywhere in between. We trended toward a casual, fun party with 75 guests, and with minimal decor and formalities, and the venue is so stunning that it really stands on its own. Our guests appeared to love it; we received this comment several times: "Aside from my own, this is the best wedding I've ever attended."

    A true gem - absolutely perfect

    In short this venue is the most amazing versatile location we visited while planning. Judi, the owner is so sweet and accommodating and it was such a pleasure to work with her.
    We live in the Bay Area and had driven down to spend the weekend looking at venues. Dana Powers House was our last visit. Pulling into the driveway we knew this location was the one. My fiancé (now husband) works in the wedding industry and couldn't believe how amazing the venue was. Having been to over 300 venues it takes a lot to get him interested. But the possibilities Dana Powers House has to offer and all the character the property has got him really excited. The plentiful areas you have to choose from to take photos/video are endless and put this venue head and shoulders above the rest.
    We used the whole property to have a cottage garden style ceremony and a rustic-chic barn reception.
    Judi also runs a vintage rentals business so the opportunities to create a truly custom pintrest perfect wedding are endless.
    If you're looking to get married in the central coast make sure you visit DPH as you won't be disappointed.
