My husband and I got married at the barn at Dana Powers House a couple weeks ago. Can we go back and do it again? It was amazing. You dont need me to tell you how beautiful everything is because clearly from the pictures it is the most beautiful place to get married. Judi was so nice and helpful. She answered my million questions. She has the most amazing selection of rentals and everything was so beautifully set up and taken care of when we arrived. She is totally on top of everything. And day of, she was a wedding ninja. She was never seen until the exact moment you happened to be taking off your veil or doing something with your shoes or bustle and then she was right there ready to handle it. She was amazing and has so much experience. Thank you so much for everything Judi! Our day was beautiful and we couldnt have asked for anything more!!

Judi Powers is an amazing person. She created a space that captured everything I could have dreamed of for my wedding day. She is elegant, calm, collected, organized, and so inviting. Her venue is something every little girl dreams of. I feel so lucky to have found the barn along with Judi and her family.

This past year, my husband Marcus and I got married at Dana-Powers House. We had our ceremony outside on the lawn near the barn and our reception inside the barn. I was planning our wedding long distance from New York City and the owner of the venue, Judi Powers was very responsive throughout all the months leading up to the wedding, especially 1-2 months beforehand. When our wedding day arrived, everything was more amazing and breathtaking than we could have ever imagined! The venue itself is stunning, yet makes a wonderful canvas for your own personal tastes and embellishments. Judi even has rentals for you to decorate with, which made things all the easier to plan. On the day of, our guests could not stop GUSHING about how beautiful, charming, fun and wonderful it all was. Guests felt it was such a special and unique venue. We hired Judi as our day-of coordinator and she was great at taking care of all the small details behind the scenes. She made sure the guests were taken care of while the wedding party was too busy taking photos, etc. She brought parasols out to shade our guests while they waited in the sun for the ceremony to begin — without us asking her to. Judi has a tireless zest for details and lovingly makes sure that your wedding will go smoothly. The only reason why "Flexibility" has 3 stars is because there are venue rules which prohibited us from serving hard alcohol for more than 1 hour and because I really wanted us to be sent off with sparklers or sky lanterns, but neither were allowed (understandably) for fire hazard reasons. Our wedding day, however, was true PERFECTION and overshadowed any of these restrictions by a mile. My groom and I had an amazing time and we wouldn't have done it any differently. Cheers! -Celeste

I would honestly give Judi and her whole team at the Dana-Powers House way more than five stars, if that were possible here. There are not enough words to describe what an amazing and special venue this is. Judi makes rustic-vintage-dream weddings come true. She was wonderful to work with throughout the entire planning process. Judi is creative, flexible, and an expert in all things weddings. My now-husband and I were planning our Central Coast wedding from a distance in the Los Angeles area, but we never had to worry about anything thanks to Judi. We also hired Judi as our reception coordinator (ceremony coordination is included in the venue package) and I'm so very glad we made that decision. She made everything flow perfectly from the moment we arrived to the moment we said goodbye to all our guests. One of the best things about the Dana-Powers House is the creativity you can bring to the spaces there with Judi's vintage rentals (Embellish Vintage Rentals) and any little special touches you want to bring in. Our guests were blown away by how amazing the whole property is, and everyone wanted to know how I found such a remarkable venue. The answer for me was Google, and if you're reading this now, you've already found it, too!

Judi and everyone we encountered at the Dana-Powers barn and house was truly amazing to work with! Judi always responded quickly to e-mails and calls and was very flexible when we came into town for planning. The wedding was everything we had hoped for and my husband and I felt truly taken care of, there was a lot we tried to do ourselves but Judi and her team came together to finish the little things we didn't think of. All of our guests are still talking about how beautiful and elegant the wedding was. This venue was everything we had been looking for and to have such an experienced, talented, helpful and pleasant person to guide us through this process was more than we could have ever asked for!

I knew The Dana Powers House was the PERFECT venue for my Aug 2013 wedding the second I saw it. Judi's beautiful property and professionalism go above and beyond, I truly do not know how she does it all. Not only did she answer numerous e-mails and come let me see the property twice before my wedding, she made planning a long distance wedding a breeze. I also used her EMBELLISH vintage rentals for nearly all of my décor, which made things very easy and cost effective instead purchasing and shipping the décor myself. The day of the wedding all the little details were perfect and the barn where we held our reception was beyond beautiful. Judi handled my "not so well behaved" groomsmen very professionally during our rehearsal and made sure everyone knew where to be and what to do and kept them all in line. :) My day wasn't perfect, because nothing ever goes exactly as planned, but it was as close to perfect as it could be and I wouldn't change a thing. The Dana Powers House is worth every penny and Judi will make every detail you've planned come to life. I cannot thank her and her staff enough for making my dream wedding come true. :)

Oh, the Dana Powers House...what a gorgeous, charming, love-filled, beautiful, creative, timeless, unbelievably unique setting for a wedding...JUST what we were looking for. We thought we'd never find it until we magically stumbled upon it and just WOW. Our guests could not believe the location, the ambiance, the amazing "feeling" this place has....We are 6 months out from our wedding and people still talk about it like it happened last week. Judi is just amazing. Professional, beyond creative, attentive and an absolute pro. Do not even think about doing your wedding here without renting from her vintage rental company: http://www.embellishvintagerentals.com and definitely have Judi be your "day of" wedding coordinator; you have no idea how much you need her to move things along and make sure everything behind the scenes STAYS behind the scenes. Honestly, I cannot say enough about this special place... The best part was...after all was said and done, on our way out Judi said to us: "Don't forget to come back and do photos with your babies in the garden someday..." What a great idea. :) Love her. Love this place. You absolutely MUST see it...whether you want a demure garden wedding, a rustic vintage wedding or have absolutely no idea what you want...at the very least go see it. It's a true gem. <3

Judi Powers provided us with an incredible experience for our wedding. We couldn't have asked for anything better. She answered all of my calls, emails and took the time to personally help us decide on vendors. We had planned to have our ceremony on the lawn next to the barn, but it rained on our wedding day. Judi had a back-up plan and beautifully arranged the inside of the barn. It couldn't have been a more romantic and intimate setting.

Phenomenal is the word that comes to mind when I think of "The Dana Powers House". I had the pleasure of having my reception in the beautiful barn and it was nothing less than perfect. Judi is the most organized and amazing wedding coordinator (especially on the big day). She was so helpful during the months leading up to the wedding and on the day of she was so wonderful. She even went as far as bandaging up my feet and giving me a pair of flip flops because of horrible blisters. This place really has it all!

Unbelievable! ALL my guests raved about how gorgeous the wedding venue was. No one had ever been to such a beautiful place for a wedding. The first time I visited the Dana Powers House, I knew it was THE ONE. No doubt about it :) I utilized the barn portion of the site, which fit mine and my husband's personalities better. But the house portion of the site is also absolutely gorgeous. Anywhere at the Dana Powers house is spectacular. Judi does such a great job and she is so talented with the decor she comes up with. Her and her crew did such a great job accommodating me and my guests. She made sure everything went smoothly and perfectly. Judi was calm, which kept me calm, and she always had a smile on her face. The Dana Powers House made my wedding day a dream come true!

The Dana Powers Barn is the perfect venue to have a vintage/rustic wedding on the Central Coast. Judi, who owns and runs the venue does an amazing job and is there for you every step of the way. Also she has some of the most AMAZING rentals if you want to add something extra. Additionally, the barn is so well decorated and kept up that you don't really have to do any extra decorating. What Judi provides as part of the package is outstanding as well. You get all the tables and chairs (for reception and ceremony), square ivory or white table cloths (I didn't use these, but have seen weddings where they did and it looked great), Judi coordinating the ceremony, 2 bartenders, water, lemonade and ice tea beverage station, coffee and tea station with china, the list really goes on. If you are looking for an outstanding barn (or vintage house & garden) venue then check out the Dana Powers Barn.

Judi was an absolute joy to work with from the beginning! Daniel and I immediately fell in love the Victorian home, gardens, and restored barn and knew that it was the perfect setting for our wedding. We put to use her extensive collection of vintage rentals and used things such as chandeliers, vintage forks and cake plates, vintage champagne coupes, an assortment of vintage tables, vintage milk glass, mercury glass, and aqua ball jars for floral arrangements, a settee for our photo booth, and a metal carved facade for our altar! Her attention to detail allowed me to relax the day of the wedding and I knew all of my hard planned details would be perfectly pulled together! Judi also did our day of coordination and everything was perfectly timed, from vendors to cake cutting!
Daniel and I spent months planning every detail of the wedding and Judi ensured that it was all executed flawlessly. We could not be happier with both the venue and Judi, our wedding was more incredible than we ever could have imagined it to be and we are so thankful for Judi and the Dana-Powers House!!

My experience working with Judi Powers was beyond wonderful. She is SUCH a sweet lady and I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. The grounds are gorgeous, she is so flexible to make your "vision" a reality, and she is just so down-to-earth and supportive of your wedding dreams! I love her vintage rental business too! What a great thing to have all that amazing stuff right there at your fingertips to rent! There were a few times where I wish I could have gotten a hold of Judi a bit more quickly (I left a lot of messages). She was always so good about returning them, but I should have just asked for her cell number a lot sooner so that I could get a hold of her for quick questions...especially when the wedding was just a couple weeks away. I needed questions answered quickly and there was just a little lag time. But, seriously, I couldn't be happier with my ENTIRE experience and would get married there again in a heartbeat! Not that I will, but you know what I mean : ) I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. GORGEOUS spot...and SO unique! It also photographs SO beautifully! Keep up the amazing work Judi!

The Dana Powers Barn was the PERFECT place for my wedding. The property is absolutely beautiful, well maintained, and most definitely loved by the owner, Judi Powers & I cannot say enough good things about Ms. Judi Powers. She was a life saver and truly a pleasure to work with.

It is evident Judi loves what she does, she is full of ideas & I appreciate her attention to detail.

Not only is the barn & property breath-taking, Judi's service, help, and support throughout all the planning stages was incredible. I would email her occasionally with questions for decor etc, she always was quick to respond.

And to top it all -- It rained on my wedding, my ceremony had been planned outside -- and only 30 minutes before, it was evident the ceremony need to be switched inside. JUDI made the call & she made sure the ceremony was beautiful inside. It was a seamless transition -- one that I could not help with because I was in my dress already, but when I came out to walk down, it was beautiful thanks to Judi & her team. The barn is so unique and goregous that I am not even sad it rained on my wedding day, getting married in the barn was without a doubt such a special moment for my husband & I & all our guests.

sorry that was so long-- i guess the most important thing to say is that I HIGHLY recommend this venue & I appreciate all of Judi Powers' hard work!!!

Very beautiful barn and view of the hillside and orchards. Weather was perfect on our wedding date, even with forecasted rain there was a plan of action. Rehearsal was all planned by Judi and went great with all the details worked out. There were even a few things thrown in last minute that really helped us out.
The contract is very specific and if you are looking for a shorter wedding, rather than a long drawn out reception, this is it. We wish we had more time to enjoy everyones company; but being the bride and groom you can not get to visit with everyone.
Overall a very beautiful wedding venue, but if you want more time, everything is written in the detailed contract.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding this past February at the Dana Powers Barn. We had the ceremony on the upper lawn and the reception in the barn. It looked so magical, I must say! The day of the wedding, Judy made sure everything was going smoothly (despite the fact that we were not as organized as we thought we were!). The inside was already so beautiful, the decorating was stress-free and very enjoyable!
The price is MORE than worth everything that Judy has to offer. She is such a sweet woman, dedicated to making every bride's dream come true! I never could have imagined such a perfect evening. Our friends and family describe the night as a "fairytale."

We held our daugher's wedding outside of the barn at the Dana-Powers House on the grass next to a beautiful orchard with the view of rolling hills, vineyards and trees. The cocktail hour was outside the barn, the reception inside the barn and we used the Dana-Powers House for the bridal party to dress and for photos. I can't tell you how many times our guests commented, "HOW
did you find this place?? It's amazing!!" And, it was. Judi, her family and staff, the vendors she recommended and the facility were absolutely over-the-top fabulous. Our daughter's day was everything she'd hoped for and much more. The beauty and unique charm of the setting and the flexibility and generosity of the staff were Five-Star!! Every time we watch our video of the wedding, we can't stop commenting how perfect the location was! Don't hesitate to check out this venue! You will NOT be disappointed!

We absolutely loved the Dana Powers barn! This setting out in the hills of Nipomo, CA was perfect for us. We had our reception on a big lawn just outside the barn and then the reception was held inside the barn which was decorated beautifully. Judy Powers runs the venue now and provides many decorations that include chalkboards, crystal chandeliers, candy table for guests, vases, mason jars for water and lemonade, a coffee station, and bartenders if you want. She is great to work with and knows what she is doing. We had a wonderful experience here!

When we were still trying to find THE PLACE to get married we knew instantly when we walked into those wonderful gardens that Dana Powers was the place!

The price is worth it all! The services you get along with your booking here are just priceless! And, may I highly recommend using Judi's "day off planning" service! I don't know how this day would have gone without her there to keep everyone on track and on schedule, and even to clean a couple dresses after a unfortunate sick baby occurrence.

This place and Judi are just wonderful! Our wedding went without a hitch and I owe a ton of it to the wonderful place and services provided!

She worked with all the vendors to get things organized. Her home and barn were the ideal location. Beautiful, great weather, and versatile. She was extremely flexible in accommodating our ideas!

I don't think I could have pictured a more perfect and beautiful wedding. Everything went so smooth, and everyone cooperated with each other. Judi, the owner of the Dana Powers Barn, is pretty well known...so my caterer and DJ both were able to set up, tear down, and work with her very easily. They were both familiar with her and her barn before the wedding, which made things VERY easy for me. Judi is a delight to work with. She is easy going, relaxed about everything, and makes you feel confident about your big day. The set-up of the barn is great too. We had pretty minimal decorations of our own since the barn itself and all of Judi's original touches to it makes it beautiful by itself. I loved having the dance floor in the middle because it really allows for all your guests to be involved and enjoy the events. The barn has such an intimate setting that makes everyone feel included and excited to celebrate with each other. So many of my guests met new people, just because the set up and atmosphere was so friendly, warm and inviting. Honestly...best...day...ever. If I could celebrate that day all over again..I totally would :)

We got married at the Dana Powers House Barn Setting and it was perfect. The ceremony area outside is so wonderfully decorated with beautiful landscape you can have the perfect ceremony with little decoration additions. The barn is decorated with vintage mirrors, mason jars and lights so you don't have to worry about many more decorations inside. We chose to have pink and white latterns to match our wedding colors which were a perfect touch. Our guests cannot stop talking about how wonderful our wedding venue was. Judi, who runs the facility, is AMAZING!! She always told me "don't worry it's going to be fine" before the wedding which is exactly what a nervous bride like me wanted to hear. She took care of all of the small details for me. On the day of the wedding Judi was PERFECT. She made sure everything ran smoothly and most of all made sure my dress was perfect the whole day, because no one else could figure it out!! Her personal touches to the facility are amazing. She caters each wedding based on the couple. I could go on and on about how positive our wedding experience was. People are talking about how we had the best wedding they have ever been to and we have no doubt that the venue had a huge role in the great day!!

As a mother of the groom I would like to comment on how amazing it was to have my son and now daughter-in-law's wedding and ceremony all in one at the Dana Powers Barn. (May 15, 2010). I can honestly say I was as nervous as the bride and wanted to take as much stress off of her plate, therefore adding it to mine. Judi was amazing the week prior to the wedding.. we visited the Barn for final details and planning. She was open for our suggestions and also contributed her expertise. The morning of the wedding she helped to transform "her barn", into "our amazing wedding venue". Along with Judi's personal touches, she added her own charm, friendliness and touch of class to make our kids day, our family and guests day, one we will never forget. To have 175 + guests come on to her property for the day, she showed organization and professionalism at it's fullest. Thank you Judi and your staff for all your efforts with Chad and Maegan's wedding. We would not have changed a thing. Jim and Linda Guiton

The Dana Powers Barn was absolutely the perfect venue for our wedding reception. The guests were in awe of how adorable it was and the black and white dance floor in the center was the perfect spot and size for our guests...once the dancing started it didn't stop. We loved all of the unique spots the barn has. Great venue if you are looking for indoor, but with an outdoor more casual and relaxed feel. The barn was so transformed on the day of our wedding into this gorgeous room with white lanterns hanging....
At times communication was difficult---but in the end the day itself turned out prefect.

We used the barn at the Dana Powers property and I can't imagine having had it any other place. The barn is so beautiful and cleverly decorated that you hardly need to do any of your own decorations. My florist barely made it with the flowers, but I wasn't worried because I knew the barn didn't really need them. Some people laughed when we said our wedding was at the barn, but every person's jaw dropped when they saw. My husband and I wanted a casual celebration of our relationship and not a stiff, traditional wedding. The barn allowed us to bar-b-que and enjoy our family and friends without worrying about an overly formal atmosphere. Having said that, I think our guests took more pictures of the site than us! Also, I did all of the planning myself, without any idea of what I was doing. Over the course of nine months I frequently emailed Judy questions (that were probably dumb) and she was always kind and responded within the day. I had no idea she was going to organize our rehearsal, which she did and was so helpful! The day of the wedding Judy worked to make it as special and stress free as I could have hoped. She even added little touchs that I never planned and was willing to assist where ever she was needed. Looking back on the wedding, there isn't a single aspect I would have changed and I cannot wait for the pictures! This site was more than just a place to get married, the feel and character of the barn and property made it feel like home.

This was the fifth place my bride and I looked at to host our wedding, and I'll tell you: it was the last. The beauty of the grounds and house struck me immediately, and I knew that's where I was going to be wed.

Judy was a wonderful hostess, very professional and kind. You can tell that she has had years of experience hosting weddings because every step of planning and carrying out the wedding was downright pleasant.

It would be impossible to go wrong with this venue.

Pros: Beautiful house with gardens and many opportunities for wonderful photos. The setting is so gorgeous, it requires very little decorating, but perfectly complements many different styles of decoration.

Cons: It may be just too beautiful. If I hadn't been there myself, I would doubt a place that wonderful can exist on Earth.

This was the fifth place my bride and I looked at to host our wedding, and I'll tell you: it was the last. The beauty of the grounds and house struck me immediately, and I knew that's where I was going to be wed.

Judy was a wonderful hostess, very professional and kind. You can tell that she has had years of experience hosting weddings because every step of planning and carrying out the wedding was downright pleasant.

Without a doubt, our guests thought it the most beautiful venue they've been to for an intimate wedding like ours. I cannot imagine our Big Day being anywhere else after experiencing the peacefulness, twinkling lights, and beautiful surroundings that the Dana Powers House offers. On top of that, Judi Powers takes away any possible stress for such an event because she is calm, professional, and thinks of details that everyone else may have missed. I'm almost jealous to let others know about this venue because we feel as though it belongs to us; however, I want to be gracious about sharing such a perfect place with everyone. We cannot wait until we get to have an anniversary to have another celebration there.

Judi at the Dana Powers House is absolutely fabulous. We were married on a lawn with rolling california hillsides as a backdrop and the reception was in an 1800's barn on the property and both it, and her victorian house, are wonderful venue choices filled with tasteful and stylish touches - you really don't have to do much. Judi is a dream to work with and a very laidback and cool lady. I feel so blessed that we accidentally came across this gem on the internet, it and Judi, are two of the biggest reasons our wedding was such a smashing success!

Our reception was held in the Dana Powers House Barn. The barn is set adjacent to the lemon groves. The barn even has a little bedroom for the bride to prep, or for our group it functioned as a room for 2 of our guests to attend to their newborns. Our guests have never seen a barn like this before. Wow, what a beautiful place! Our guests are still talking about the majestical setting. Judy is amazing to work with. She will make sure everything is done accordingly.

The Dana Powers House was gorgeous and Judi was so helpful in planning our wedding & reception. From the first day we met her she was so calm and just as excited about our wedding as we were. It's been 3yrs and my guest still talk about how beautiful and fun our wedding was. We could not have picked a better place.
