I absolutely loved this wedding at Mt. Woodson Castle. As a San Diego wedding photographer, one of the things I love most is visiting amazing wedding venues. San Diego has so many beautiful wedding venues, from the beach to the mountains to vineyards set in rolling hills. If you’re looking for a wedding venue that is all-encompassing for bridal party prep, ceremony, and reception, then I can’t recommend Mt. Woodson Castle enough!
Wedding days are a whirlwind! From hair and makeup to first looks to cocktail hour and reception, the day can move along at a fast pace, especially if you have to move from venue to venue. What I love about this venue is there are plenty of spaces for the bridal party to get ready, gorgeous open spaces for the ceremony, and a large reception area. Your guests can enjoy the wedding all in one location, and so can the bride and groom. This leads to less chaos and rush on your wedding day, and more time to be present to each moment.
Obviously, this is my favorite reason to get married at Mt. Woodson Castle! There is no shortage of places to take photos. The architecture inside and outside of the castle is spectacular. Whether your photos are being taken inside or outside, they will be absolutely gorgeous with the backdrops that Mt. Woodson Castle offers.
This last point may seem trivial, but having a wedding venue that is easy to get to and has plenty of parking is a must! The last thing you want on your wedding day are guests arriving late because they couldn’t find a parking spot. I love this venue because it is fairly easy to get to, in a location with very little traffic, and settled on a golf course with tons of parking. Those are all wins in my book!
Are you planning a wedding for the upcoming year??! If so, consider Mt. Woodson Castle for your wedding day! And if you’re looking for someone to capture it–it would be an honor for me to do so!
