Adamson House Wedding

Adamson House Wedding

The wedding was 5 stars that I attended on the property of the Adamson House.. so I'm going to review where the 3 stars using the property on the Adamson House. After the beautiful ceremony under this beautiful tree, cocktail hour was at the main entrance of the house. I opted to join in one of the 20 minute tours of the house, The only that I did not like was the constant DO NOT TOUCH, DO NOT TOUCH, DO NO TOUCH.. seriously it's a house made of tile not glass. I have a weak ankle and when I used the wall to reach the stairs I was ” yelled at” geez.. Please for the safety of your children and elder don't bring them. The wedding reception was beautiful outside by the Adamson Family House Pool but when it came to use the restroom, they had to rent fancy porter potty's since The Adamson House is not used inside for anything but tours, I decided to wait till I got home, oh which was another 20 minutes before I could get to my car since there's no public parking on the property and we where shuttled to the wedding 5 blocks aways. I may return to do the full tour of the house and touch EVERYTHING ( catch me if you can)

Adamson House Wedding

The Adamson House was built by Rhoda Rindge Adamson and her husband Merritt Adamson in 1929. Her parents, Frederick Hastings Rindge and Rhoda May Knight Rindge (founder of Malibu Potteries), were the last owners of the Malibu Spanish Land Grant, a stretch of property that is now known as the city of Malibu. When the youngest Rhoda received over 13 acres of property from her mother (known as the “Queen of Malibu” for her fight to keep it a private estate free of roads), she and her husband Merritt hired well-known architect Stiles Clements to build them their house on Vaquero Hill, inspired by Spanish architecture and using the gorgeous tiles created by her mother’s company. It was at the house that the family kept goats, lambs, milk cows, bees, and prize-winning horses. Rhoda lived in the house until her own death in 1962, and the state purchased the property in 1968 with the intent to make additional beach parking. However, the chancellor of Pepperdine University moved in to Adamson House as a way to maintain it until it could be restored, and the Malibu Historical Society was finally formed to preserve the house, which became a California Historical Landmark in 1985.

Adamson House Wedding

pinimage Jenny and Christopher (you might remember their engagement session here!) got married at the absolutely gorgeous Adamson House in Malibu, California. It was a beautiful day for guests to gather and witness two people in love start their forever after. Brought together by mutual friends and shared faith, these two are a perfect match. A proposal not too long ago happened when, in their words, “we got tea at our favorite tea shop and then went down to our favorite spot where we went after we were first dating, said “I love you” for the first time and had our first kiss.” Chris started to ask about their relationship and all the ways that Jenny had seen them grow together. Chris then shared about how he had seen them grow and got down on one knee to propose with a beautiful ring that once belonged to his great grandmother. The result was a beautiful wedding at a historic house right on the beach. The girls spent the day getting ready in the pool house, and the guys relaxed close by. Shared moments with close friends and family, communion and finally the sharing of vows at their ceremony had Jenny and Christopher go from two people in love to husband and wife. Afterward, we got to wander the grounds with these two and photograph them on the beach, on the Adamson House balcony and inside the museum. Their reception was full of fun, heartfelt toasts and dancing, but the scene stealer was the gorgeous donut tower (that guests could not wait to ravish!). An amazing day was undoubtedly had by all and Jenny and Christopher have a day they will never forget!

Adamson House Wedding

If you’re considering a wedding location on the beach, this Malibu estate is a must. The Adamson House Loggia sits on one of the most beautiful beaches in Southern California, about an hour down the coast from Santa Barbara. A truly classic Malibu home, it was built in 1930 for Rhoda Rindge Adamson and her husband, Merritt Huntley Adamson. Fantastic view of the ocean make the beach-side grass lawn a perfect location for a wedding ceremony, wedding reception, or cocktail hour. Notice the Persian-style ‘rug’ complete with fringed ends designed into the tiles by William Handly of the Malibu Potteries. It’s hard to compete with the wedding photos that this venue produces, especially when the sun sets on the ocean during the reception.

We have to write a review for the lovely Adamson House. We have been catering their for 20Years, and it is always such a pleasure to work with Lynette and her team. They keep the grounds so nice, and it's never a bad day at the beach. Rain or shine, we could not have asked for better couples to ask us to be their Caterer for their weddings at Adamson House. This is a true Gem! We cant wait for our 2016 couples. See you soon Adamson House, we will bring the delicious food!

Adamson House Wedding

Came here for a wedding and I have to say, the staff and people around (especially the location) really got to me. Everything was pretty much bombtastic. Its a historic area, the wedding was well near flawless, the ocean and weather were cooperative, and the “reserve” itself was cool. Just .. please don't touch anything .. and no food, drinks or people on the tile walls .. and .. just be careful overall. All lookie, no touchie, or you get whoopie.. and by that I mean, yelled at. Ok, now for the general admits. There are tours that run through often, but I would recommend calling ahead before you come because I met 2 older couples who came and asked for a tour but were turned away because of the wedding in progress. From what I hear from staff, they do weddings at LEAST once a weekend, usually 3-4 weddings a week. I was able to tour the nice marsh, hit the beach, view the ocean from the “brides room” aka the swimming pool area (and let me tell you thats a nice photo op area – see also the view from the flagpole), and of course, under the big ol' tree on the grass below the building by the sand (which you really can't miss). NOTE FOR PARKING! You CANNOT park on the premises! You'll HAVE to park on the street (unless you get a special pass for a wedding). The beach parking lot next door is part of the county, and the people on the Adamson House side can't help you if you get towed or anything .. just a heads up. 😉 Hope this was helpful!
