Estate Weddings and Events debuts new private estate venue in Rancho Santa Fe, The Emmaline Estate, styled after a French country cottage.
Emmaline Estate Pool Deck
Emmaline Estate’s owner had the estate built upon returning from a trip from France where she had fallen in love with the French countryside. Emmaline Estate is a 9,775 sq ft estate decorated with stone walls and rustic windows and patio furniture on 4.37 acres of property. Picturesque landscaping details include paved pool deck with fountain, flat backyard lawn space, private gate, and citrus trees dotted about the property. The Emmaline Estate invites guests to witness its most unique feature, a stone bridge over private creek with flowing water at its entrance.

Says Estate Weddings and Events founder Jamie Ehrsam, “This new estate is very special to the Estate Weddings and Events team. Since our most popular estate, the Emma Estate, became unavailable this year, we had hoped to find one of equal beauty and with the same romantic essence. The Emmaline Estate is more than what we could have hoped for and we are extremely excited to be offering this estate to new clients.”
The Emmaline Estate is the newest property in the Estate Weddings and Events repertoire and is now available for weddings, corporate events, special events and filming. Overnight accommodation is available for an additional charge. Please contact the Estate Weddings and Events office at (888)662-8360 or at email@example.com to arrange a site visit.

Kristen and Chris’ charming garden wedding reminded us of all the reasons we love The Emma Estate! Its lush gardens and simple beauty make the perfect backdrop for an elegant and romantic wedding.
Elegance and romance were certainly the words to describe Kristen and Chris’ stunning wedding under the warmth of the Rancho Santa Fe sun. Dreamlike walkways and gardens set the mood perfectly!
It can be easy to loose sight of the reasons for marriage in the hustle and bustle of planning; however, Kristen and Chris’ intimate ceremony and reception never lost focus of love and family.
The little details were what made their weddings so special: hanging pictures, a timeline of their “love story”, and little “bride” and “groom” details.
Seating and table positions may conjure images of boring linen colors or stress surrounding where to place that college-roommate’s-boyfriend’s-wingman but all of this can be avoided with family-style seating. By arranging all the tables in a pseudo-circle, guests can all feel included in conversations and everyone will feel like their sitting at the bride and groom’s dinner table!
Pastel colors and seasonal peonies complemented the garden wedding perfectly. The decor was not overdone and definitely not overlooked!
While the wedding certainly was garden-influenced, it of course had a great Southern Californian flare. The Emma Estate’s stunning pool lined with palm trees made guests feel like they were sipping cocktails in paradise.
Dream-like romance carried on into twilight as hot air-balloons decorated the skyline and refreshing breezes swept over the garden, setting the perfect mood for dancing the night away.
Kristen and Chris’ wedding not only reminded us why we love the Emma Estate but also why we love weddings!

Tying the knot in an idyllic setting seems like the perfect recipe for romance.
While it might be tough to convince some guests to take the trip, a destination wedding can also be very attractive for wedding attendees because they can combine their travels to your celebration with their annual vacation.
The beaches of St. Croix, Satin John and Saint Thomas are as idyllic as any destination in the Caribbean.
At the same time, unlike many islands in this part of the world, a passport is not necessary for US citizens who want to visit the USVI.
This means that a last-minute elopement can take place on the Virgin Islands even if the couple does not have their passports.
Also, a destination wedding held on these islands won’t require all the guests to have passports.
Aside from the logistical advantages, this is a wonderful place for a party.
The beaches, especially those on Saint John, are perfect and often uncrowded.
Villas and rental estates overlook the water and provide the perfect setting for a tropical-themed ceremony and the ensuing reception.
Arizona is a popular destination for golfers and snowbirds.
The cities of Phoenix and Scottsdale are also classy destinations that have been drawing the world’s elites for near a century.
This is the heart of the Southwest and a place with many high-end boutiques, world-class restaurants, PGA tour-worthy golf courses, and luxurious hotels and spas.
The Camelback District, which sits in the shadow of its namesake mountain, is the center of Southwestern stylishness.
A favorite haunt of past luminaries like Humphrey Bogart and a number of other stars and politicians, this district is ideal for those seeking a classic luxury experience for their special ceremony and reception.
Resorts cater to wedding parties, as do private villas and estates, many of which sit in the foothills and mountains overlooking Phoenix and Scottsdale.
3. New York City
The Big Apple is an exciting place to visit, whether you are getting married or just taking a brief vacation.
The amazing array of wedding and event venues make this the perfect choice for anyone who wants to combine the excitement and romance of America’s biggest city with their wedding celebration.
Wedding venues can be found in every borough.
These range from small penthouse condos that can facilitate an intimate ceremony (or even act as a base for a luxurious honeymoon) to large historic event spaces that can host a reception for hundreds of people.
For larger destination weddings, guests can combine their wedding attendance with a vacation in one of the world’s great cities.
4. San Diego
San Diego is not quite as famous as its northern neighbor, Los Angeles, but it does have some traits that make it an amazing place for a destination wedding.
The weather is almost ideal year-round, making it possible to have the typical “June” wedding experience at any time of year.
San Diego has a full array of rental estates and event spaces.
These range from modern, luxury penthouses perfect for small gatherings to huge spaces that can accommodate weddings of five hundred people.
Choosing a great estate in any one of these four destinations virtually guarantees you a memorable and romance-filled destination wedding.
