Let's Plan Your Perfect Day

Welcome!

We’re glad you’re here.

When you choose The Casitas Estate as your San Luis Obispo wedding location, our passion is making your day truly remarkable. With several packages and rates to suit your needs, you’ll enjoy the privacy and sweeping views of our hilltop terraced location to hold your ceremony, cocktails, and reception. Your photographer can capture gorgeous images of your day including our Obispeño Syrah vineyard, infinity lawn, mature oak groves, and even poolside.

In addition, because we want you to fully enjoy every minute, both of our reception packages include the services of our in-house wedding planner, Sandcastle Celebrations. Owner Janet Tacy will begin working with you as soon as you’ve booked your wedding date at The Casitas Estate, help you every step of the way, and her team will support you for both your rehearsal walk-through and wedding day. And, if you have your own planner, she can still assist locally as needed as a great resource to make your weekend perfect in every way.
