The Hidden Chateau is a boutique wedding venue nestled in the Historic District of Escondido, CA. Situated just minutes from the old downtown, this craftsman home was built in 1910 and is one of the largest historic houses in Escondido. The grounds are spacious and lush and canopied with towering evergreens, exotic ferns, and languid palm trees. Owner Kristie Rocco and her team invite you to tour the grounds and fall in love with this charming outdoor venue. The venue is a romantic and intimate setting in which to host your momentous occasion. A brick pathway leads you along the lawn to a secluded gazebo, where you and your partner can exchange vows as your loved ones look on. This covered white structure is lit with a chandelier and surrounded by verdant tropical plants and sparkling market lights that add to the dreamy ambiance. After tying the knot, you can head back across the grass to the house’s raised, crescent-shaped deck. Here, you can sip cocktails and sample hors d'oeuvres with your guests late into the warm Southern California night. The lawn can also be set up for an unforgettable night of dining and dancing under the hanging baskets of roses and twinkling stars. The Hidden Chateau offers both wedding and elopement packages with up to 5 hours of event time. These also include exclusive access to the property, tables and chairs, a small staff of wedding specialists, a venue coordinator, and a surround sound system. The estate is available for weekend celebrations of up to 75 guests.
