Located about an hour north of Santa Barbara in wine country rests the small and quiet town of Los Olivos, California. Hotels and buildings with wine tasting rooms line the streets. Nestled next to a boutique store is the Fess Parker Wine Country Inn. And yes, we’re talking about that Fess Parker. The one, the only, Davey Crocket. After his time in Hollywood, Fess moved to Southern California and purchased land to build his winery and inn. And that’s just one of the reasons this venue is so special. Read on to learn more about the Fess Parker wedding venue spaces.
You wouldn’t believe it, but behind this darling little inn is a beautiful space that is perfect for an intimate wedding. Complete with a fountain, string lights, and the ambiance that only a small quiet town can have.
Depending on scheduling and the size of your wedding it is possible to book the entire inn for your family and friends, which makes it that much more special. Your wedding day can turn into a wedding weekend! An incredible menu of food, wines, and relaxation await your stay at this Fess Parker wedding venue.
Just six short and scenic miles from the Inn located in the rolling hills outside Los Olivos is the Fess Parker Winery. With multiple expansive green lawns and large oak trees covering the area, it’s a perfect place to enjoy a picnic with wine.
Rows and rows of vines bearing grapes stretch out as far as the eye can see. The vines forced to stop only because of the rolling hills surrounding them. In the spring months, California Poppies are in bloom on the hillsides painting them orange.
One of the most amazing things about having a Fess Parker wedding at the Winery is that there are so many options. It’s like a blank canvas that you get to design. And you’re already surrounded by beautiful landscapes, and a canopy of stars after the sun sets.
A design that’s simple and beautiful. Marcella’s Garden is a few minutes walk from the main winery building and is set within an opening in the vines.
Your family and friends gather on an expansive green lawn watching as you exchange rings between a row of Cyprus trees, vowing to spend forever with the one you love in Marcella’s Garden. A large oak tree stands strong and tall behind the altar as if watching over the start of your marriage.
Once your ceremony is complete your guests can move to the lawn beside the Winery. A dance floor can be set up and string lights can be strung above providing light for your alfresco reception. And then you can dance the night away in the arms of your new spouse.
The latest addition to the Fess Parker Winery wedding venue list is Rodney’s Vineyard. This venue space is recently completed and is located on a hilltop overlooking the property’s vineyards below.
A medium-sized reservoir is within view for the entirety of the wedding day. And there is more than enough space for a ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.
Rodney’s Vineyard is like a warm memory with a soft breeze blowing through the air bringing along the scent of summer days and long nights. Could there be a better vision for your wedding day?
