Garden Weddings

Lavender Inn is one of Ojai’s most cherished wedding venues with the historical 150 year old building and the “boutique chic” garden setting.  This magical wedding destination features stunning outdoor spaces, gardens bursting with color under majestic oaks, a small pond with waterfall and the scenic backdrop of the nearby mountains. Tranquil and private, this idyllic setting is the perfect place to begin your wedding journey!  Create your own Wedding Story by booking out the entire Inn  where family and friends are a part of the celebration during your stay.  Whether you have a small or a large Garden Wedding, we can help you customize it to make your dreams come true.

Lavender Inn can accommodate up to 100 guests for your wedding ceremony and reception.  The entire inn, the Cottage/Bridal Suite and the seven guest rooms will exclusively be yours during the stay.  Weekend bookings have a two-night stay requirement while a weekday wedding can be a one day rental though we recommend at least a two day stay to ensure that you and your guests  spend quality time together and aren’t rushed.  The atmosphere of celebrating your family and closest friends being together has been noted to make your Wedding Story  “laid-back excitement and anticipation”.   Beth, the Wedding Coordinator,  blocks out your event and holds the rooms for the guests you have selected to stay.

Numerous couples choose to come to the Lavender Inn a few days prior to their celebration, extending the planning, getting ready, and making more memories.  The intimate 1874 boutique inn is just steps from Ojai’s shops restaurants, and breweries so your guests have options to do on their ‘off’ times’ of the weekend wedding celebration.  The day before the wedding indulge in a couples massage in our Garden Massage Gazebo or in the Cottage in front of the fireplace. In the later afternoon the wedding party can sip on wine prior to your rehearsal.   After the ceremony rehearsal, wander across the street to a rehearsal dinner at one of the amazing restaurants.  In the mornings we offer a delicious Continental Breakfast so you and your guests won’t have to worry about going out for coffee and breakfast.  The ceremony can take place under one of the two garden arches with the tables and chairs set up on the opposite side of the gardens. The post ceremony cocktail hour continues in the back, while the wedding party takes photos in the front of Lavender Inn in the picture perfect English gardens.  After the reception, the wedding celebration can continue at one of the bars across the street – you don’t have to get in a car and drive.
