The Castle Green – A Living Legend
Congratulations on your engagement! Thank you for considering the Castle Green for your special day. The Castle Green is one of the most enchanting special event locations in Southern California. Built in 1898, with turn of the century glamour and charm, the Castle has a fabulous ground floor setting for your event and several unique locations for photos. When you enter you are taken back in time with the Lobby's grand marble staircase and crystal chandelier, our Salon and beautiful smaller rooms for your cocktail reception; the Ballroom for dinner and dancing and our veranda & lawns for leisure. The building had remained virtually unchanged since 1898. Today, the Castle has become one of the most cherished historic buildings in Pasadena and remains a majestic centerpiece of the city; we invite you to enjoy its many splendors.

Our team is happy to provide you with all the information and support needed to help you through your planning process. When you book with the Castle, you are not only booking a beautiful venue, you are also getting the benefit of an experienced team. Our goal is to create a stress free, joyful experience for you. We specialize in long distance weddings (couples living out of state/country) as well as short term planning (why wait!!!). We also are able to accommodate cultural weddings, helping our couples incorporate their family’s traditions, creating beautiful lasting memories. We have put in place a system to ensure that your wedding day will run effortlessly and be flawless!

The Castle Green is a Venue Only and works exclusively with several preferred, full service catering companies. These caterers will work with you to create a menu that is perfect for your event! In addition to their exquisite cuisine, they also provide an excellent service staff as well as the bartenders. These caterers will create your floor plan and execute the set-up. They will also provide their own cooking equipment, as well as the glassware, flatware, chinaware, and linens for your tables. Their services may also include additional rental items, wedding cake, and other décor items. Your caterer will also perform the break-down after the event and do all post-event clean-up for you.

My husband and I absolutely fell in love with Castle Green as soon as we stepped inside the front doors. Don't get me wrong, the venue is stunning from the outside as well but it isn't until you step inside that you feel yourself taken back in time. The venues is kept in immaculate condition which is impressive considering that almost everything inside is vintage or an original. Because it was so beautifully decorated inside already, we didn't have to worry about bringing in our own decorations. Also don't feel limited to the vintage feel of the venue. We had a lot of fun with our wedding and used a lot of both vintage element and modern colorful components. The beauty of the venue really speaks for itself.

The staff there at Castle Green are AMAZING! They really made us feel so comfortable as soon as we walked in and they really were an integral part of our team through the whole wedding planning process. I really can't say enough about how genuine both Dior and Rosalinda were in wanting to create a memorable and truly unique wedding experience for us. If it weren't for those two ladies, it really wouldn't have been the same.

Castle Green is a great venue if you’re looking for something historic and romantic. We had a lot of out of town guests and Castle Green’s location in Old Town Pasadena, close to restaurants and hotels, worked out great for our wedding reception.

The event planner changed just before our wedding but we did not have any hiccups or issues with our plans. Castle Green only allows specific caterers, we used The Ultimate Affaire and were very pleased with their food and service. Castle Green updated the ballroom in the months before our wedding and it looked beautiful (newer drapes and cleaner than when we had signed our contract).

Pay attention to events happening in the local area on the same day. A large music festival took place on the day of our event, which we were not previously aware of. The parking garage was full so parking was more difficult for our guests, and we could sometimes hear music from the courtyard area where our cocktail hour was held.

Unfortunately there wasn’t a way to cover your guest’s parking costs and assure parking space for your guests by using the recommended parking garage.

Castle Green is a beautiful historic landmark in Pasadena, so initially I was overwhelmed by the length of the contract and the rules we had to follow. We had a wedding reception there near Christmas time. It was beautiful, complete with a fire in the fire place and the 15 foot tall Christmas tree. Castle Green has a list of recommended vendors which was extremely helpful. Shannon the event coordinator at Castle Green was very helpful and worked well with our event planner, Samantha Sisk of La Bella Dia and our caterer Mike Faulkner of Simply Elegant Catering.
Castle Green is a wonderful venue for a wedding! I highly recommend it.

We recently celebrated our wedding at the Castle Green and it was the absolute best! The grounds are so spacious and beautiful and so roomy for our guests. When I decended down the spiral staircase, I felt like a princess in my own fairy tale! The event planner, Shannon Ercek, suggested the caterer, florist, photographer and even answered questions we forgot to ask! She made sure our special day was trouble free by helping us with our preparations well in advance. The Castle holds so much history, it was a privilege to be married there!
