Ojai Valley Inn Farmhouse wedding

Julia and Mallory (with the help of Vanessa Noel Events) searched for a wedding venue that could host their guests for the entire weekend, and of course, they fell in love with Ojai Valley Inn. The larger resort offers The Farmhouse as a wonderful event space just steps from guest rooms, and it was perfect for the couple’s vision for their weekend celebration.

The design

Vanessa got to work curating the brides’ Ojai Valley Inn Farmhouse wedding. She leaned into the color palette and textures already inherent in The Farmhouse’s decor for the reception. The Great Room’s oatmeal, khaki, and blue plaid carpet set the tone for a neutral yet feminine design. 

The early March rain created a muddy, wet lawn, so the ceremony moved indoors to the library. The sun still peeked out in the afternoon for portraits of the two beautiful brides, and guests enjoyed The Farmhouse patio before moving into The Great Room for dinner. Mallory and Julia’s friends and family were greeted by Breanna Jane Botanicals arrangements in soft shades of lavender, peach, and soft pink. Avenue Twelve’s custom bar echoed the floral illustrations on the couple’s invitation suite. Guests sat at grey wood farm tables, also from Avenue Twelve, and enjoyed entertainment by West Coast Music.

The celebration

The result was a sophisticated, modern space with elements of springtime. The vibes were set for an elevated celebration! The rain couldn’t dampen Julia and Mallory’s spirits, and the joyful day was full of excitement and love. This Ojai Valley Inn Farmhouse wedding was truly wonderful; here are just a handful of my favorite images.
