Introducing The Jasmine Sanctuary at Villa de Lucca, the most unique wedding venue on the West Coast!

Welcome to Villa de Lucca, our private estate & elegant Tuscan-inspired villa, now featuring our newest addition, The Jasmine Sanctuary.

Our unique 10 acre venue sits high on a hill, with sweeping 360 degree views of mountains & rolling vineyards. The Jasmine Sanctuary is a one-of-a-kind, 2,400 sq ft wrought iron structure with climbing star jasmine vines, surrounded by olive trees & stunning gardens brimming with fields of lavender, rosemary & ornamental grasses. Meandering pathways lead you and your guests from the main Villa to a romantic garden where you can exchange vows, framed by the seemingly endless horizon. Afterwards, lead your guests down to the majestic sanctuary for dinner & dancing under the stars.

This is the perfect romantic setting for your special day! Whether you are seeking an intimate gathering of 25 people or a fun, opulent party for 150, we can accommodate you all. Your lifetime of memories start right here!

Facilities and Capacity
Villa de Luca is a 3,800 square-foot Mediterranean-style custom-built home with four bedrooms, four bathrooms featuring a split-wing design. The Villa boasts an impressive rotunda tower entryway, a Spanish-style roof, 17-foot high ceilings, and a series of impressive Doric-style columns lining the perimeter of the house. The kitchen features a six-foot bar, an 8-foot island counter, a five-burner gas range, two dishwashers, and a wine cooler. Villa de Luca also features a game room, fitted with a ping pong table, shuffleboard table, air hockey table, and a flat screen TV.

The Jasmine Sanctuary is right next to the wedding garden and both have unparalleled panoramic views of rolling hills and vineyards in all directions. The Jasmine Sanctuary is a dramatic wrought iron structure trellissed with jasmine vines and outfitted with three oversized swaying chandeliers & colossal sun sails. There is no venue quite like it...dress it up for romance or drama...whatever your style, this venue promises to leave your guests awestruck!

Sweet and Accommodating

As a vendor, I absolutely love working with this venue. They are always so flexible and accommodating. Both Jenna and Zenia are very fast at responding and such sweet ladies to work with. I would recommend them to both clients and other vendors.

Amazing venue unlike anything in the area

I was looking for a unique outdoor venue and contacted Jon and Zenia because I heard about the brand-new Sanctuary structure on their property and wanted to see it for myself. Even in the winter the grounds and venue are absolutely stunning and pictures cannot do it justice. The Sanctuary feels like you're in an outdoor chapel, and you can still see the views of the rolling hills of wine country everywhere you look. The Guest Villa is clean and modern and has everything we need to get ready for the big day and rest after the wedding. The grounds are meticulously well cared for and the landscaping looks very high-end. They were very clear about what is included with the venue rental and were so warm and welcoming yet professional. We now have our wedding booked for 2023 and cannot wait to host my friends and family in this magical space!
