Historic venues in LA for weddings & events Situated at the lower end of the Las Virgenes Valley in the heart of the Malibu Creek Watershed, this scenic parkland is a haven for larger mammals of the Santa Monica Mountains. The broad meadows and low ridgelines serve as a wildlife movement corridor or hub in the geographic center of the range. Nine sensitive species are present. Raptors and other birds forage and nest among the plant communities of valley and coast live oak savannah, grassland, coastal sage scrub, chaparral, riparian woodland, and southern willow riparian vegetation.  Park features include some of the original formal landscaping including a long eucalyptus alleé and grand entry,  a serene pond, sweeping lawns, bridges, and the historic Spanish Colonial Revival style mansion with a formal courtyard and terrace.

The historic Upper Las Virgenes Ranch sits on a private plateau in the heart of the parkland, offering the perfect location to create the outdoor wedding or private event of your dreams.  With gorgeous views, broad lawns, majestic oaks, and endlessly charming indoor and outdoor spaces, the locale is at once intimate and expansive and ready to be imbued with your personal touch and sense of celebration.
