We are excited to give a small sneak peek from our shoot at Mount Ida Farm last week! Mount Ida Farm is a beautiful new wedding venue near Blenheim Vineyards with over 400 acres of sprawling hills and gorgeous views.
When I first visited Mount Ida I was in awe of the gorgeous gazebo overlooking the small lake with a fountain in the middle. I could immediately envision the fairytale wedding that so many brides dream about, complete with the fairytale horse-drawn carriage (led by two gorgeous Clydesdale horses), and grand entrance on the beautiful stone staircase!
Another thing that couples will love is that Mount Ida offers both indoor and outdoor event spaces, so the fear of rain will not ruin their fairytale dream! They converted one of their larger stables into a romantic reception hall that can hold up to 200 guests, catering, and a large dance floor. They also have overnight accommodations, suitable for up to 65 people, which is perfect for couples having a destination wedding.
Mount Ida Farm is now booking weddings for 2012, for more information contact Milicent Lynch (firstname.lastname@example.org or 434.566.5562).
