    Dream Wedding @ the Casitas Estate

    If you are looking to get married on the Central Coast at a venue with gorgeous views, intimate/romantic vibe, connections to all the best vendors and working with two of the most wonderful owners, Pat & Tony, look no further, book the Casitas Estate for your wedding. We cannot thank them enough for sharing this venue with us. As you walk the property, they take meticulous care of the property. They also have 4 beautiful rooms on-site & Tony's family recipes & local fresh fruit for gourmet breakfasts each morning. Staying on site, made it so easy for the bridal party to get ready. Our guests were almost 100% from out of town and were blown away by the Casitas Estate. The Casitas Estate is beautiful Spanish styled architecture but can be transformed to fit any wedding theme, ours had A LOT of color! Make this your #1 wedding venue on the Central Coast of CA!

    Dream wedding come true

    It’s hard to put into words just how special and accommodating Pat and Tony are to their guests. I found the Casitas Estate on Yelp prior to getting engaged, and even before I said yes, I knew this was going to be the place I got married. The day after I got engaged I took my fiancé there to see the venue and he was hooked. There was never a plan B. It is the most beautiful, intimate, romantic venue I’ve ever seen. There is nothing commercial about it, which is exactly what we wanted for our big day.

    My husband and I held our little 35 person wedding at the Casitas Estate and it was the most perfect wedding weekend. We arrived on Friday and many guests left Monday. It was the most magical weekend of our lives. It was the perfect setting for our parents to meet for the very first time and have some quality bonding time on the property. Pat and Tony were kind enough to have my father in law’s room ready as his flight was arriving early on Friday. They ensured all of our guests who were staying there were well taken care of and helped me make arrangements for additional guests to stay at the Agrarian hotel just down the street. On the morning of our wedding, Pat and Tony cooked the most wonderful breakfast and set it up on the lawn overlooking the vistas. That morning was one of the peaks of our weekend because our immediate families got to share a beautiful meal together before all of the wedding festivities began.

    Pat and Tony went way above and beyond what any other venue site would do to ensure we had the most special day. From helping choose a caterer, DJ, rentals, parking assistance, and even some day of coordination, they were helpful every step of the way and were kind enough to help us stay within budget. They remained in constant contact with us throughout the planning process as we were planning a wedding in just 3 months. All of the vendors they recommended were incredible. Our guests are still talking about the food we served and how beautiful the venue was. After a long period in quarantine, we couldn’t have picked a better more intimate location to reunite with family and friends for the best weekend of our lives. My husband, family, and I are eternally grateful for the graciousness that Pat and Tony showed us throughout a very stressful covid wedding planning experience. They were right by our side every step of the way ensuring we got the experience we dreamed of. I always knew having my wedding there was going to be special but I never could have imagined how amazing it would be in reality. It exceeded every expectation and we can’t thank Pat and Tony enough for making our dream wedding come true.

    So glad we didn't wait to book Casitas!

    The Casitas Estate was the first venue we toured, and we knew the moment we laid eyes on the beautiful Spanish-style architecture and the incredible views of the surrounding hills and nearby Talley Farms that we wanted to host our reception there.

    Despite booking 18 months out, two other couples were interested in Casitas on our same wedding day, so we're glad we didn't wait long to put down a deposit.

    Much of our family and friends are from the Midwest, so seeing the Casitas Estate was among the highlights of our wedding weekend for our guests. We were blessed with immaculate weather, which didn't hurt.

    Pat and Tony, the owners, are salt-of -the-earth people. (Tony is an amazing cook, our family loved the breakfasts he cooked in the mornings.) Our caterer was horribly short-staff (another story for another time) and Pat and Tony even filled in for them by serving our guests wine. That's how much they care.

    The only challenge with the Casitas Estate is the shuttles, but they ran smoothly and none of our guests has an issues. We ran them to and from the two hotels we reserved wedding blocks at. Pat and Tony were flexible on this and we really appreciated it, as did our guests. (Side note: We recommend the Agrarian Hotel for a wedding block.)

    I could go on and on about this place. My wife and I have remarked that "we want to be Pat and Tony when we grow up" and fantasize about somehow owning the Casitas Estate one day. It is a very special place, and we look forward to returning for a stay in the years ahead.

    Our best advice for couples:

    1. Don't wait - book now! You won't regret it.
    2. Arrive early and stay late. We checked in on Thursday and left on Monday. We actually wish we had even another day to relax by the pool, etc.
    3. Request Janet Tacy as your coordinator. She handles most of the weddings at Casitas and knows it like the back of her hand. She works very well with Pat and Tony.
