Fess Parker Wine Country Inn is a well-loved 19-room boutique hotel sitting amidst the vine-covered hills of Los Olivos, California. Recently renovated by the Parker family to bring out all its relaxed charm, it allows guests a convenient central place from which to explore the dozens of wineries nearby, or for those wishing to stay in, an ideal spot to enjoy a spa treatment and get away from it all.
The light in the Santa Barbara County is enchanting at any time of day. Declare your love beneath soft pink evening skies surrounded by vines in the heart of wine country. Exchange vows under the shade of tinkling olive trees amid lavender and rosemary in our sun-dappled gardens. Or elope in our white curtained gazebo under sparkling stars. A wedding at Fess Parker Wine Country Inn evokes a relaxed, classic Hollywood romance that’s impossible to forget.
Pamper pre-ceremony with a special wedding party package; start the celebrations early with a chic cocktail reception in our exclusive restaurant, The Bear and Star; sit down to a set menu of sumptuous fare hand-selected from our own farm and ranch seven miles away. We look forward to crafting a bespoke celebration you’ll never forget.

A Perfect And Magical Day
It is without reservation that I highly recommend Amanda Parker, Catering and Events Manager, and the Fess Parker Wine Country Inn for a wedding (or any special event, for that matter). I can't say enough good things about Amanda and her team- from the moment we met with Amanda, she was an absolute delight to work with. She worked with us to accommodate our requests and personally paid attention to every detail on our wedding day to ensure everything ran smoothly.Sent on 11/24/2018
She and her team checked in with us constantly throughout the wedding weekend and seemed genuinely happy for us.
Here are some other things that really stood out:
1) Service- the service and event personnel were exceptional. At our tasting, for example, the chefs came out and introduced themselves and then helped us put together a phenomenal menu for the wedding. At the wedding, service couldn't have been better. Some of our guests had food preferences/sensitivities (that we didn't know about). The staff noticed they weren't eating some of the food and brought special meals to them on the spot. It was this type of going above and beyond that happened throughout the process.
2) Food- you will never have better food at a wedding. Almost all the food they serve is from the Parker farm and ranch which is near the Inn, so everything is seasonal and freshest of the fresh. Even with a large group, no detail went overlooked, and our guests raved about every course.
3) Venue- the only word is magical. There is something so magical about the Fess that makes it unlike any other venue. It's a mix of farmhouse and Four Seasons, where you feel like you are at a five-star resort but also feel relaxed and at home. We did the ceremony and the reception in the garden with some pictures at the winery/ranch, and it was all perfect. The garden is a beautiful space where you can have a fun, larger group but also small enough where it feels intimate and personal. And the winery/ranch made for some of the best wedding pictures we've ever seen. Also, the design and decor of the Inn are exquisite and made the entire event feel so classy.
I would highly recommend the Fess Parker Wine Country Inn as a venue to any bride. Our guests were extremely pleased with everything, with several saying it was hands down the best wedding they have ever been to. The Fess exceeded all our expectations, and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out and with our decision to have our wedding there.
