The moment you pass through the vintage wrought-iron gates, you will be transported back in time, to a more elegant and romantic era. As you drive up the 970-foot tunnel of bougainvillea and flowering shrubs, a graceful vintage estate reveals itself nestled between ancient trees. Built in 1881 and designated by the city of Orange as the historical site, this private estate and farm combines natural landcape, old-world and rustic elements to become the perfect outdoorsy backdrop for your wedding. It offers 3 distinct event areas for your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception under the market and twinkle lights and surrounded by acres of undeveloped natural landscape, wildflowers and mature trees.

Our wedding at Hamilton Oaks was utterly magical. The venue was the exact quaint, private, and romantic setting that we pictured. It's hard to envision what the wedding will look like without the flowers and decor, but we trusted Sanya, our wedding coordinator (and now friend!), that it would look absolutely amazing. We're so glad we did because we as well as many of our guests, thought it was the most beautiful outdoor wedding we had ever been to. Sanya forged a wonderful relationship with us early on, and it didn't take long to feel how much of her heart and soul went into her work, trying to make other couples experience the best day of their lives. She had the rare and perfect combination of being both professional and also fun/creative, which made the planning experience so easy and enjoyable. She made sure that we would have no worries on the day of. The venue provides so much manpower so that every part of the wedding (i.e. setting up, valet parking, drinks and food) are taken care of by the staff. Weddings here are so much bang for your buck. The other venues that we looked at gave us similar quotes, but there ended up being so many hidden fees, service charges, and tips that we had to pay on top of that. Hamilton Oaks gives you a price that is actually the price we ended up paying! Also, Sanya takes care of last minute changes without hesitation, even at late hours of the night. You may be tempted to go with other vendors that Hamilton Oaks is not affiliated with, but I wouldn't recommend it. They have relationships with caterers, florists, etc. that they work together frequently with, so you can be assured that they will coordinate everything to make your big day go by smoothly. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue to provide the warmth that you want to feel when making your vows to your best friend, surrounded by your loved ones. And Sanya was absolutely pivotal in making the whole planning and the day such an unforgettable one!Sent on 10/04/2015

Wonderful Wedding Experience with VIP
We has the most wonderful experience planning and having our wedding with VIP at one of the beautiful locations. Amanda and Sanya made everything so easy and truly became friends by the end. We loved that they managed our major vendors (catering, floral, rentals, cake, valet, security and DJ) all on our contract directly with them and I can tell you the prices were extremely competitive. We also felt that we got better service from each of these vendors because they know the VIP team so well! I’d recommend them to anyone getting married.Sent on 07/04/2019
