About

On WeddingWire since 2016

Westlake Village Inn is a wedding venue located in Santa Barbara, California. Since 1968, the hotel has been a luxury destination in the Conejo Valley. The 17-acre property features nine event spaces that to-be-weds can utilize for their special occasions. This venue is ideal for couples looking for a lush retreat with European-inspired details for their big day.

Facilities and Capacity

Westlake Village Inn offers a number of indoor and outdoor event spaces for weddings. The Tuscan Garden is a charming spot where you and your partner can say “I do” in the warm California breeze. Featuring a stone fountain, floral arbors, and an earthen pathway, it offers a romantic, pastoral setting. To incorporate the venue’s lush landscape into your ceremony, you can exchange vows beside the waterfall. For a French-countryside-inspired atmosphere, you are invited to tie the knot at the Lakeside Arbor. After your ceremony, you and your loved ones can dine and dance in any of the hotel’s indoor reception areas. The Fairway Reception Room features a built-in bar and offers views of the picturesque golf course. In the Lakeside Reception Room, you can celebrate with up to 140 guests. The elegant space consists of 2,800 square feet and a large private patio with a stone fireplace. For those hosting events with 230 loved ones, the Provence Reception Room is ideal. When dining and dancing here, you can admire panoramic views of the lake, waterfalls, and golf course. The bi-level ballroom features six grand chandeliers, creating an elegant ambience for any occasion. If you’re dreaming of an intimate, fairytale experience, the Tasting Room offers old-world charm and vineyard views. For a Tuscan-inspired setting, the Wine Cellar is adjacent to the lake and includes a private bar with rustic wine barrels. Whichever event space you choose, the venue’s team will be there to support you.

Westlake Village Inn offers professional wedding coordinator services to create seamless days for every couple. For guidance each step of the way, event planning is available. The venue’s wedding cuisine options include the Enchanting, Fairytale and Romantic packages. They each offer a range of menu items, from delectable main dishes to sweet desserts. A cocktail menu and bar services are also available for you to avail of. For those celebrating who are vegan, the culinary team is happy to prepare delicious alternative options.

Just Stunning!

WVINN was the best venue I could ask for! They know weddings and do them so well. Dana was our contact and she was so easy to work with and quick to respond. We loved staying in the deluxe suite. The staff was just the best! No complaints

Such a beautiful experience

I can not say enough amazing things about the Westlake Village Inn. I truly think it's LA's best kept secret- an oasis and paradise. It doesn't feel like you are in LA, but Italy. Not only is it gorgeous, but it is superbly well-maintained and has so many wonderful experiences to enjoy onsite. There's really no need for you or your guests to leave once you arrive. It has everything you could possibly need for a perfect wedding weekend: beautiful grounds, a perfect back drop, multiple event spaces, nightlife, and restaurants.

We recently got married there and had the most amazing experience with the Westlake Village Inn team- shout out to Briana! Everyone on their team was so welcoming and accommodating. The planning process was smooth and easy as their team really knows what they're doing. The staff is very clear on the steps that are needed in order to ensure a successful and smooth event. The staff gave us all eyes and ears throughout our entire stay, and made sure that everyone in our party was well taken care of. Our event went off without a hitch or bump in the road. We wouldn't have changed a thing.

Look no further than the Westlake Village Inn for your wedding. I can promise you'll have an amazing wedding experience and will want to visit again and again in all the years to come to relive your beautiful day!

Dana Jordan + Team are INCREDIBLE!

Having been from the area, I always envisioned getting married at the Westlake Village Inn. It has so many amazing scenic areas that are absolutely perfect for pictures and our ceremony site within the Tuscan Garden was just drop dead gorgeous! We started working directly with Dana Jordan on the Events Team right from the start and we couldn't have been happier. She provided amazing recommendations for vendors, ideas on how we could bring our day to life and above all, was super accommodating during these times of Covid when we had to postpone not once, but twice. Our experience with the venue was fantastic and would highly recommend anyone book with them! Our guest experience was equally amazing, as practically everyone we have spoken to after our wedding are absolutely RAVING about the food saying it was hands down the best wedding they had ever been to. My husband is from Long Island where you feel like you're being served your dinner at cocktail hour because the amount of food is ridiculous, so being a number of our guests have that expectation at weddings to be FED, with a few additional add-ons like a sushi station, chilled seafood station, make your own sundae bar and assorted plated desserts, our guests were overwhelmed with the food selection and to hear them rave how fantastic everything was, was music to our ears! You won't regret booking your event; especially a wedding at this venue!

If you have a chance to visit Westlake Village Inn, make an appointment ASAP. The staff is amazing and the venue is beautiful with impeccable water views. We really like the ceremony site as well you can't beat the arched ivy entrance coming down the isle. :-)
