Lovers of the movie “Pretty Woman” may find Calamigos Equestrian a little familiar, but not only was this Hollywood favorite filmed here, but it has also hosted numerous star-studded polo matches and luncheons. Sprawling over 75 acres in Burbank and backed by the Santa Monica Mountains, the rustic setting and stunning landscaped gardens of Calamigos Equestrian also make it a firm wedding day favorite, and since the event team at Calamigos Ranch have added their experience to the line-up, the results are truly magnificent.
Whether you are planning an intimate gathering or a lavish affair, Calamigos Equestrian boasts numerous indoor and outdoor spaces for you to hold your wedding event. You can select the charming Garden Courtyard in the middle of Hunt Field, which is framed by a white picket fence and shaded by stunning sycamore trees. Whether you say “I do” beneath the trees or on the raised gazebo, you will be accompanied by the sounds of nature and a tranquil waterfall.
The bride can get ready in the nearby Little White House, whose French doors open out onto a garden of fragrant rose bushes, and cocktail hours can be held in the adjacent field, with room to host up to one thousand guests! There are lots of gorgeous locations to stage couple portrait sessions, with the late afternoon light providing a whimsical ambiance, backed by the white picket fences and beautifully-kept horses of Calamigos Equestrian.
Receptions can be held in one of the ranch’s private rooms, with the Equestrian Ballroom perhaps the most outstanding space. Chandeliers hang from above and panel doors open out onto a spacious terrace, with views across to the Santa Monica Mountains in the distance. For something more formal, opt for the Grand Prix Room with its stately fireplace and overhanging chandeliers, or the Polo Room which boasts a separate bar and lounge in addition to its elegant dining space.
All catering and bar packages are provided in-house by Calamigos Equestrian’s highly experienced team, and the event staff is second-to-none when it comes to organizing unforgettable wedding events. Whether you want to add in your own decor and details or let the natural beauty and rustic features of Calamigos Equestrian speak for themselves, they are ready to create a magical wedding day that meets your wildest dreams.
