Crossroads Estate Wedding

A Gorgeous Santa Ynez Wedding Venue

When Ruth and Matt, who hail from Los Angeles, were looking for a Santa Ynez wedding venue, they knew a Crossroads Estate wedding would have everything they and their out-of-town guests wanted

Ruth and Matt were married amongst close family and friends on an unseasonably cold May day. Despite the cold temperatures, Ruth wore a gorgeous Reem Acra gown and Matt chose a classic tuxedo. Their guests, which included several A-list celebrities, partied the night away inside the Estate’s gorgeous reception venue.

If you’re looking for an amazing venue, you can’t go wrong with a Crossroads Estate wedding!

Preparation in the Bridal Suite

Ruth prepared in the bridal suite with her mother, sister and two nieces who were flower girls. Her A-list team of makeup artists and hair stylists drove up from LA to make sure she looked her best.

The Crossroads Estate Wedding Ceremony

Matt’s father embraces him as Matt reacts emotionally to seeing Ruth walk down the aisle.

Ruth and Matt’s ceremony was held under an old oak tree at Crossroads Estate. With views of the surrounding valley and hills, this is the perfect Santa Ynez wedding venue.

Their ceremony involved many Jewish traditions and was led by a cantor.

Shortly after their ceremony, Ruth and Matt made their way inside the estate to greet guests. Ruth’s gown got snagged in the door as it shut behind them. In their attempts to open the door, the handle broke!
