Perfect mt. top, perfect sunset, perfect support for our vision/dream
Not only was the terrace and view a fairytale place at sunset but the option of an inside space with flexible staff that worked with us on our details and wishes made this beautiful for all (with perfect photos that prove that ). EVERYONE (with the option to commute into or stay over) fell in love and will visit the city and location again: a thousand memories of light, valley, hawks, wine, music, family, laughter and loveSent on 01/20/2020

Love at first sight
My husband and I weren’t looking to have a big wedding. We wanted courthouse and a small reception, but then we came across this little gem and that all went out the window. We took a tour, immediately fell in love with the views, and booked the same day. We were married on July 28, 2019 and as you can expect it was super hot during the ceremony (provide water and fans), but it made for perfect weather during cocktail hour and the reception as the sun went down. The staff made everything so easy for us which was great because we got married only 5 months after getting engaged. Claire and Ulrich especially were so accommodating and available anytime we had questions. We were married on a Sunday and what’s great is you can reserve the entire property for the weekend to have friends and family stay over in their 12 little cottages. Another plus is it’s right up the hill from the Ranch House, an amazing restaurant where we had our rehearsal dinner. We had our ceremony on the Pink Moment terrace, cocktail hour in the Waterfall Garden and the reception up on the Mountain View terrace overlooking the amazing Topa Topa mountains. Everyone raved about the views and we’re surprised they had never heard of it. There are so many great spots on the property to take pictures. Ours came out stunning and the lighting was so good. Tried to include pics to show all the cool spots. You will need to bring in all of your own vendors at this venue which I preferred bc it allowed me to shop around. I could not recommend the Ojai Inn and Retreat more.Sent on 01/23/2020

The Ojai Retreat was an incredible location for our wedding. The property itself is stunning, peaceful, and private, and the property managers clearly take great pride in maintaining its beauty. Every staff member we encountered throughout our three-day wedding weekend reaffirmed that there is a special group of people running this property, and they each care very much about the wellbeing of their guests.
Throughout the wedding planning process, the communication with the Retreat was quick and efficient (mostly via email, but they were also happy to answer any questions we had over the phone), and they were very accommodating of our special requests as we continually worked out the logistics of our big day.
The most wonderful part about hosting our wedding here was that there is room for around 26-28 people to stay on-site, so both of our families and our bridal party was able to stay together, eat breakfast each morning together in the Main House, and celebrate all weekend long in a truly unique setting.
We couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to celebrate our union and to welcome all of our nearest and dearest to gather together for a weekend that we won't soon forget. Thank you to every single person on the Ojai Retreat staff for all that you did for us!
