Your Perfect Wedding

Kennolyn sits on 300 private acres, offering expansive views of the Monterey Bay, redwood-topped hills, and the Monterey Peninsula. With a Spanish-style courtyard, a dining room filled with windows, and terraces cascading down to a large lawn, this beautiful property is the ideal location in which to set your dream wedding.

The lush lawn overlooking the bay is a spectacular place to exchange your vows before your family and friends. A tiled fountain sets the stage for a picture perfect ceremony. Kennolyn's professional wedding coordinator will ensure your ceremony goes perfectly.

After the ceremony, enjoy an hors d'oeuvres reception in the courtyard, centered around the 4-tiered fountain bubbling with cascading water. The chefs have created California-inspired menus with many choices to please even the most discriminating palates. Or you may customize a special menu to fit a theme - Mexican, Indian, Japanese -- these talented chefs can accommodate any style of food.

After dining on the terrace overlooking the ocean and sweeping vistas, your wedding festivities continue with dancing and cake in the courtyard. Kennolyn's unique progressive-style facility provides different locations for each part of your special day, adding to the ambiance and overall experience.

Even though Kennolyn is only a few miles from the highway, its secluded location offers a private and personalized wedding venue that your friends and family will be talking about for years.

Kennolyn is also able to offer a very unique wedding experience using our two venues, the Hilltop Hacienda for your wedding ceremony and reception plus adjacent Stone Creek Village for a weekend-long intimate wedding experience for your closest family and friends. This Wedding Weekend option is only available a few times each a year and sells out quickly.

Not only are we the 1st event venue in Santa Cruz County to earn the prestigious Diamond Certified Award, we are also Independently Rated Highest in Quality. Come tour Kennolyn and find out why it's one of the most popular places in the area to get married.

I can't say enough about how wonderful Kennolyn and its staff are. The venue itself is so gorgeous - it overlooks the ocean and is situated in the Santa Cruz mountains surrounded by Redwoods. The staff is incredibly helpful and responsive - we worked with Janine for over a year. During that year, she would respond to our emails within 24 hours and continuously make us feel at ease. She coordinated with our vendors the day of and made sure we did not have to deal with anything the actual day of our wedding. The actual wedding went off without a hitch and was the day we both dreamed it would be. We feel incredibly lucky to have chosen such a wonderful place for our wedding!

Our wedding was at stone creek village and it was a magical weekend. Everything went brilliantly, the service was exceptional and everyone was super friendly and kind. We felt very taken care of and the space amongst the redwoods made it all more magnificent.

As a wedding photographer, I've photographed weddings in many beautiful venues. Kennolyn's Hilltop Hacienda is one of my favorites! The views are world class, the grounds are really beautiful, and the hacienda is gorgeous. Wedding photographs there always come out great! The staff is very professional, and will make sure that your wedding day is perfect.
