Here are a few details about the venue itself...

Located on 43 acres in beautiful Mill Valley, California, the Ralston White Retreat was designed by one of San Francisco’s most prolific architects, Willis Polk. The Retreat is a sixteen-bedroom mansion that was originally acquired as a wedding present by the owner to his wife. He named their home the "Garden of Allah" after a popular novel at the time.

The 14,000 square foot home has three stories, a number of balconies with spectacular views and beautiful furnishings throughout. The heart-shaped lawn and beautiful grounds invite you to enjoy the elegance of your surroundings. There are several walking paths on the property as well as nearby trails that lead to the top of Mt. Tamalpais.

Jenny and Jeff decorated the interior of this historic mansion with a large dose of character. They added details and rearranged all the vintage furniture in the house until it became perfect for the wedding.

So much more to come!
