It's not easy to find small wedding venues in the Pasadena area, but, here's the perfect one for those of you wanting a small, intimate wedding, but in an elegant venue.
Located at 201 Orange Grove Avenue in an area known as the historic "Millionaire's Row," The Bissell House Bed & Breakfast is a three-story Victorian mansion built in 1887. The mansion has had several owners during it's history, including the daughter of Melville Bissell, the guy who made the popular Bissell line of vacuum cleaners. She used to entertain in the house, inviting many prominent people of her day, including Albert Einstein. But, you don't have to be a genius to have a wedding in today's Bissell House, you just have to be in love!
The Bissell House specializes in intimate, outdoor weddings, accommodating up to 40-50 people. And, it's located near many popular Pasadena area attractions: Old Town Pasadena, Rose Bowl, Norton Simon Museum, and Burke Williams Spa. Out of town guests can stay at the Bissell House, or at one of the nearby hotels, such as the Westin Pasadena. Go to bissellhouse.com for more info.
