We are hoping to shoot more Redwood Ridge Estate weddings. If you’re getting married here, you’re lucky. And a genius. If you’re thinking about getting married here, we vote YES. Redwood Ridge Estates is hands down our favorite Santa Cruz wedding venue. AND our favorite Los Gatos wedding venue, since they’re basically in between both cities. This place is magical.
Nestled in the cool redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountains, Redwood Ridge Estate has the best of everything. There is an amazing pond, settled among the lush redwood groves. The pond is complete with an island that you can get married on as your guests look on from the shore. It’s a really unique way to celebrate your ceremony. The environment is quiet, and you feel like there’s no one nearby to disturb your event. And that’s basically true—it’s located at the very top of Summit, so you’re very secluded!
But it’s not only the redwood grove that’ll make your Redwood Estate wedding perfect. Follow the path to the gorgeous barn on top of the hill and enjoy your party overlooking a beautiful Santa Cruz vista. Vineyards and sun and views. You’re above the fog of the Bay so you get lots of GORGEOUS golden light. Your photographer will love it. Redwood Ridge Estate is property of Apple-co founder Steve Wozniak, and they haven’t compromised on any detail of the place. And the land used to be an alpaca farm so go take pictures with all the animals still living there!
One of the things we like about top venues is when the flow of the event space makes sense. It’s also important that the facilities should be easily accessible but also kind of out of the way. The best part is when we and the other vendors are treated and fed well. But things really become manageable when the property has spaces to get ready in. And Redwood Ridge Estate fits all of these priorities.
Take some time to read through the wide spectrum of reviews on Yelp. And be encouraged that the place is now under new management so you’re in great hands! Hopefully you’ll have all the reasons you need to choose this Santa Cruz wedding venue for a fantastic Redwood Ridge Estate wedding.
Our best guess in price: $$$$ (of 5)
Between Santa Cruz and Los Gatos, so lots of places for guests to stay and explore
