wedding ceremony in malibu hills with panoramic view of ocean

Dream Destination

It is fitting that Hilary & Mike (a fun, glamorous and down-to-earth couple) chose Stone Manor Estate as the perfect venue for their outdoor wedding. This privately owned estate is the ultimate Southern California dream destination!  It’s located high in the Malibu hills with the most breathtaking panoramic views of the Pacific. The home, with it’s thick stone walls is reminiscent of an old English Manor and the impeccable grounds are simply stunning.

What’s not to love about this gracious couple, the estate’s flagstone pathways, bougainvillea-draped stone arches, flowers in full bloom and old-growth trees & orchards?! Did we mention the gorgeous pool with its own waterfall?
