Situated on 14 acres of private land in Valley Center, California, Hacienda del Sol is a historic wedding venue. Originally built in 1940 by actor Steve Reeves, this elegant property has since been fully restored with precision and delicate care. Every tile within the house was hand-painted by San Juan Capistrano, adding to the venue’s extraordinary appearance. This sublime site acts as a blank canvas to which you can curate and plan the day you’ve always envisioned.
Facilities and Capacity
Hacienda del Sol provides up to ten areas for indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions. For those seeking to make the most of the Californian sunshine, the Palm Courtyard is a stunning event space, ideal for festivities that run long into the night. This open air space is surrounded by picturesque palm trees and luscious green lawns. Here, you have ample space to create a blissful ceremony site as well as a reception area that features a dance floor and seating. A stone’s throw away from the courtyard is the swimming pool and relaxing pool deck area. This site is great for pre-ceremony cocktails beside the pool or can act as a quiet area for guests to recline as the sun sets on your unforgettable day. For indoor festivities, the barn is a rustic area featuring elaborate architecture. Suitable for large gatherings, this setting can be configured in a variety of ways, and includes enough space for seated guests as well as live entertainment. Further event spaces include various gardens and the cropped corral field.
Couples have the choice of several packages at Hacienda del Sol as well as help from the property’s professional event planners. Their most comprehensive wedding collection includes a photographer, a honeymoon retreat, bride and groom suites, and the use of all event sites on the property. In collaboration with the venue’s event planner, you can receive a list of trusted and reliable vendors within the surrounding areas. This makes the often stressful planning process run more smoothly with the guidance of the venue’s passionate team. Alternatively, you may work with outside vendors of your choice to best reflect your style and vision. Additional event services provided include setup, event breakdown, and dance choreography for a first dance to remember.

Fun Ranch Style Venue
This location has a very Southern California Western Feel, but also the feeling of an at home glass of wine tone. The buildings are beautiful and unique and the land brings you back to old San Diego.Sent on 07/14/2019
