Mt. Woodson Castle is a historic event venue, nestled in the rugged natural setting of Ramona, California. Built in the 1920’s, the Castle sits adjacent to the Mt. Woodson Golf Club. It is multi-level, and consists of 12,000 square feet! With an amazing management team, led by our Venue Coordinator Tracy Zemke, Mt. Woodson Castle offers magical wedding ceremonies and receptions.
In October of 2012, we held a beautiful Mt. Woodson Castle ceremony and reception for Kyle and Melina. With help from Julie Scrivener, wedding coordinator from The Best Wedding for You, Kyle and Melina’s rustic country wedding theme came together exceptionally.
Melina and her ladies prepped for the wedding in the Bridal Suite, which is located inside the Castle, upstairs from the Great Room.
Meanwhile, the guys got ready and relaxed down the hall, in their own Groom’s Suite.
As soon as the wedding party was ready for the celebration to begin, they popped their heads to announce their presence.
Kyle and Melina’s ceremony was held on the Front Lawn of the Castle, surrounded by friends and family. The Castle itself served as a gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony.
After reciting their vows, Kyle and Melina ventured around the Castle’s property to enjoy their first moments as husband and wife.The happy couple was photographed near various locations, including the windmill and the serene lake.
After the ceremony, guests moved dining tables on the Upper Lawn, near the Castle’s front doors. Since the bride and groom both have backgrounds in graphic design, each table was named after a different type font. The reception was filled with beautiful shades of ivory, burgundy and burlap, with the décor and centerpieces created by Tessilk Flowers.
Mr. and Mrs. Isbell were welcomed into the reception during their grand entrance. Later into the evening, guests enjoyed a delicious menu from Personal Touch Dining.
Following dinner, Kyle and Melina share their First Dance as husband and wife inside the Castle’s Great Room.
The Great Room is aptly named, with its 16-foot ceilings, charming fireplace, wood beams and stone walls. For this wedding, the Great Room was transformed into an evening party, with music by Elite British DJ.
The evening continued with tons of dancing, a bouquet toss from the balcony of the Castle, and a cupcake cutting to end the evening. It was truly an amazing wedding for a very beautiful couple.
