Twin Oaks Wedding Venue: A Study in Neutral Colors

January 5, 2023

Looking for a romantic and beautiful venue to host your special day? Consider having a Twin Oaks wedding at this picturesque venue in North County, San Diego. Experience the enchantment of a peaceful outdoor space surrounded by lush greenery. This venue is all about being simple and classic with a touch of modern. It is a perfect backdrop for many color palettes and florists love this space because of the possibilities. I had the pleasure to design florals for the venue that highlighted the style and atmosphere of the newly updated San Diego wedding venue.

Garden Vista Lawn

Twin Oaks wedding venue offers two different areas for ceremonies. One area can be used for smaller ceremonies and/or cocktail hour festivities, and the larger space can hold up to 200 guests for the ceremony. The Garden vista lawn is a stunner. Here we have 100 chairs on the lawn so potential clients can get an idea of the spacing, but even filled with only 50 chairs this area is still a beautiful spot to exchange your vows. Rolling hills, green lawns and a garden surround the lawn and make the space private for you and your guests.

Fireside Patio

My personal favorite at the Twin Oaks wedding venue is the Fireside Patio. An ideal setting for smaller ceremonies, this area is breathtaking during sunsets. The focal point is the large brick and stone fireplace, a great place for a ceremony or even a casual lounge area. It’s easy to imagine enjoying the fire as you grab a drink and chat with family and friends. The patio is draped in market lighting with indoor access to the reception space, restrooms and bar; this space is comfortable and quaint. The tranquil surroundings and lush gardens create a serene, romantic atmosphere, while the venue’s amenities provide flexibility to suit any type of event, from intimate gatherings to larger affairs.

A Florist’s Review of Twin Oaks Wedding Venue


First of all, this venue is so easy on your vendors, especially your florists. There’s lots of parking, with nearby unloading areas, and no stairs or elevators. Vendors can drive up to the venue and directly unload for reception, ceremony and cocktails, this is a dream!

Site Overview

The Garden Vista Lawn is a huge rectangle bordered by deep green hedges and creamy rose bushes. It’s basically a blank canvas of green and white with views of rolling hills. This space can easily be designed as rustic, modern, garden or glam. Arches, ground designs, chuppahs, they all work here and here’s another plus- the lawn is flat. Can you imagine a sperry tent here? I can, and it would be glorious!

Adjacent to the large lawn is the fireside patio. Incredibly easy to access either from the lawn or reception area, this spot is smaller and covered in neutral-colored bricks and stone. The ground is cement too, which helps when transporting items in carts and wagons.

The reception space is also a rectangle, and has a bridal room at the far end. The light greyish walls are enclosed by crisp white borders. The floors are covered in a light-colored wood, a nice combination of grey and tan. Every window or door has a view of greenery too, no concrete jungle here. Lastly, the vaulted ceiling has painted wood beams and modest lighting. Neither a proper gold nor silver, the lighting’s hardware is untarnished and simple. From a designer’s point of view these fixtures are very easy to hide or accentuate depending on your vision.

I chose to complement the reception area with a neutral color palette of quicksand, muted sepia, stone grey, and blonde. A combination of warm and cool neutrals is a romantic, dreamy choice for a color palette. On the other hand, a palette of crimson, terracotta, oatmeal and touches of gold would also be lovely. This space can easily be transformed depending on your whim, and is such a welcome sight for designers and planners alike. I’m really looking forward to returning to this venue in the future to play with colors.

San Diego has plenty of venues for every kind of couple, but Twin Oaks wedding venue is definitely worth a look for those clients that are looking for a relaxed atmosphere. Recently renovated, this event venue is classic and fresh. It’s a welcome addition to north county’s options for brides and grooms looking for something different. From a vendor’s perspective this venue is logistically perfect. If you haven’t viewed it yet, consider stopping by. With its unique styling and captivating ambiance, Twin Oaks offers an unforgettable wedding experience. Whether you’re dreaming of an intimate garden ceremony or a grand celebration, the dedicated staff at Twin Oaks will help you bring your dream wedding to life.

WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. 


If there is anything that we wish could come true, it would be that we could go back and relive that day again...with Kim at our side every time. By the end of our wedding Kim was more than our wedding planner, but a trusted friend who will always remain dear to us.

SHE is capable of any
and everything

To say Kim planned our wedding would be an understatement. She crafted an experience that was a true reflection of us, executed with artistry and grace. She didn't just make our dream wedding come true—she made it into a reality we could have never even dreamed of.
