The Farmhouse at Ojai Valley Inn
It is no secret that I am a fan of the Ojai Valley Inn. Ojai is my hometown and I feel blessed to plan and design weddings in the beauty of where I live. I am so happy to share with you a labor of love in this designed editorial photo shoot to show off the new Farmhouse at Ojai Valley Inn.
Ojai Valley Inn is proud to introduce the show-stopping, $20 million, multi-use epicurean and event center The Farmhouse at Ojai Valley Inn.Nationally acclaimed architect Howard Backen with Backen Gillam Architects in Napa Valley drew inspiration from the magical setting of Ojai to incorporate a natural aesthetic for the expansive 30,000 square foot culinary and event center, designed to connect world-class food culture with indoor/outdoor events.Set on 220 verdant acres against the stunning backdrop of the Topa Topa Mountain Range, The Farmhouse at Ojai Valley Inn takes form as a series of natural indoor-outdoor spaces, each with a unique personality that flows seamlessly into the next.Featuring a path of sun-splashed nooks dotted with ancient native olive trees, an organic chef’s garden, a spectacular two-story alfresco fireplace and a 100-year-old oak tree.
