The Victorian2640 Main Street Santa Monica, CA
Located in the historic heart of Santa Monica just one block from the beach with warmth and style in a uniquely elegant setting, The Victorian Mansion creates an atmosphere of romantic sophistication, which will leave you and your guests with memories to last a lifetime. This carefully restored example of Victorian architecture and grounds provides exquisite indoor and outdoor locations for your wedding ceremony and wedding reception.
The Victorian Mansionâ??s 15,000 square feet can accommodate intimate gatherings from 50 to larger parties of 400 or up to 1,500 utilizing our surrounding grounds, all in lavish splendor. The house includes two stories, a large outdoor patio on the main floor beautifully landscaped with seasonally changing flowers, twinkling lights and a waterfall, and more. We can accommodate both indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions.
First built near the Hotel Miramar in 1892 as the home of one of Santa Monicaâ??s founding families, the historic building was moved to its current location in 1973. The Victorian has been completely renovated, with the main rooms enlarged and the addition of a wine cellar, and has become a favorite site for weddings, bar mitzvahs, formal parties, banquets or just about any type of special event.
A brick path lined with candles and twinkle lights at night leads to a pale-yellow shingled home trimmed in deep green and fronted by trees, flowers and outdoor seating. A polished oak bar greets you as you enter, and is a popular gathering space for cocktails, as are the homeâ??s two patios. Throughout, the decor is characteristic Victorianâ??antique furnishings, classical artwork and candles. The hand-painted Garden Room features an octagonal enclave at one corner framed by tall windows, and is an excellent place for a ceremony or to seat the guest of honor or wedding party. A line of French doors opens to a delightful terrace, where guests sit amongst trees seeming to grow up from the wooden floor and through the latticework canopy. The terrace is enclosed for warmth and comfort. Other ceremony sites are the Heritage Museum lawn and the nearby beach. Wedding ceremonies can also take place upstairs. This space also has a built-in bar and a covered veranda where guests can mingle before the ceremony.
