Numerous corporate brands, organizations, and families have entrusted us with their most special occasions. We find such joy in creating experiences that transcend expectations, which is why we are one of the top wedding venues in Southern California!
The Padua Hills Ballroom is uniquely elegant and spacious, with a vaulted ceiling from which wrought iron chandeliers hang. Their gentle lights glint off of restored hardwood floors and reflect in the hand-carved mirrors situated along the walls. The original wall sconces and Spanish colonial décor whisper of a lost age of romance and adventure. The ballroom dance floor is fully equipped with over $500k of customizable lighting and sound equipment (sponsored by Entertainment Express), making your event a one of a kind experience that no one will forget.

Plaza Courtyard + Gazebo
In the heart of the Padua grounds, among a scenic grove of olive trees, sits the venue’s plaza courtyard. Featuring a one-of-a-kind wrought iron gazebo, this site provides a memorable setting for couples to say, “I do.” Follow charming brick and stone paths into an intimate copse of trees. The trunks and branches of olive trees glow with points of soft light and illuminate the magical space where your guests can witness your vows among perfectly manicured greenery and fragrant blossoms.
This site also offers a customizable option for your wedding reception. You can enjoy a pleasant cocktail hour next to our blazing fireplace or opt for a dinner with linen-draped tables, chiavari chairs, and twinkling lights.
