When it comes to wedding venues on the Central Coast, there are hidden gems sprinkled throughout San Luis Obispo County. I recently stumbled across one of those gems by the name of The Casitas Estate. The quote on their website describes The Casitas as, “A private estate nestled in San Luis Obispo County’s wine country.” A recent tour of this Spanish-style California hacienda can only be described as breathtaking due to the gorgeous, well-manicured grounds, stunning views of the Arroyo Grande Valley and a picture-perfect mountain backdrop.
More About The Casitas Estate:
“The Estate, situated on seven acres, was formerly a private residence known as Casa De Colores, built with lush gardens, and a feel of Tuscany peppered with mature Mediterranean Olives and Lavenders. The architectural design is in keeping with historic Inns like Rancho Santa Fe from the turn of the century–in a Spanish Revival Style centered with picturesque natural landscapes and vistas from the back lawn. The Casitas Estate boasts seven signature kiva fireplaces adorned with Talavera tiles and two private courtyards centered with fountains, offering you many great settings for your special day.
Perched above the fields with panoramic views, your ceremony and/or reception will take place overlooking the Arroyo Grande Valley and nearby vineyards. The Casitas Estate will help you create the wedding of your dreams here on the romantic Central Coast of California.“
Recently, this wedding venue was featured in a fun, inspirational summer photo shoot by 100 Layer Cake titled, “Whimsical summer brunch wedding inspiration.” One of the things I especially love about this property is the intricate Spanish tiles which are found inside and out and much to my delight, this photo shoot successfully captured these details. Being that this was an inspirational shoot, I can honestly say that I was personally inspired by the “Bellini and Sangria Bar” – it looked both dazzling and delicious!

If you are seeking a Central Coast Wedding Venue, I highly recommend a tour of The Casitas Estate. Here is a quote from a recent bride who was married at The Casitas Estate:
“My husband and I feel so fortunate to have found your property. We wedding was everything that we could have asked for! The grounds are beautiful and the views breathtaking, but one of the best features was the comfort and intimacy that the venue offered. Tony and Pat (as well as the other staff the day of) were fabulous. The wedding ran very smoothly with the help of their great vendors. It was truly a beautiful day, and one that we will not forget. We loved our experience at the Casitas Estate and cannot wait to return.” Brian and Stacy Leuten
