Weddings that take place at private estates are special in so many ways. Maybe it's the fact that its exclusive and only availability to a select few, that its tucked away in a quaint town far from bustling cities, or that it's simply not your typical wedding venue. Whatever the reason, private estates add such a magical element that make a wedding feel that much more at home, intimate, and charming. Susan and Alex were blessed to have a friend who owned such a venue, a gorgeous villa-inspired home that was tucked away in the valleys of Somis, California, located north of Los Angeles. The gorgeous venue had everything from a beautiful meadow for the ceremony, a courtyard for the cocktail hour, and a recreation room for the reception. A big thank you to Caroline Yoon for the beautiful photos, I will keep this short and let the photos speak for themselves, enjoy!
