Christmas Time Wedding at the Christmas House - Southern California

What better place to plan a Christmas-time wedding than at the Christmas House Bed & Breakfast Inn located in Rancho Cucamonga?

The Christmas House was built in 1904, and has played host to weddings and receptions from the start, offering two lovely Victorian settings: the Parlor for weddings up to 50 people; and the Garden for weddings up to 150 people.

Parlor Weddings:

If you want a smaller, more intimate wedding, go for the Parlor, where you can make your grand entrance from the carved wood staircase, while your ceremony takes place in front of the parlor fireplace. For ceremonies and receptions up to 30 people, you have a couple of low-priced packages to choose from: a ceremony and buffet reception for $4300; or a ceremony with a cake and champagne reception for $2700.

Garden Weddings:

The garden of the Christmas House can accommodate weddings and receptions with up to 150 guests, and feature English gardens with a Carriage House, gazebo and lawn area and a quaint tree swing which makes for fun wedding photos. Of course, there's space in the courtyard for dancing.

There are a couple of Garden Wedding packages to choose from, with a ceremony and reception featuring a variety of menus starting at $9600 for up to 50 guests, or $11,100 for 100 guests. This package includes the meal, wedding cake and DJ service.

If you want something more informal, you might want the Cocktail Party Reception, which uses a combination of the gardens as well as the parlor. Prices for this package start at $7600 for 50 guests on up to $8600 for 100 guests. This package includes ceremony and reception, buffet meal and wedding cake, as well as the services of a DJ.

There are also other packages available for those who wish to utilize the 6 guest rooms at the inn, which are furnished in period antiques.
