Roses are beautiful, fragrant and in abundance at the Villa de Amore wedding venue in Southern California.
The Villa’s formal Rose Garden is wonderfully designed with pathways, benches, a beautiful water fountain and rose covered trellises. The garden overlooks vineyards and is perfectly situated to take in the sunset. It is also one of the favorite locations at the wedding estate for the wedding cake cutting ceremony.
The two varieties of Roses planted in the Garden are the Don Juan (climbing) and the Mister Lincoln. The Don Juan has a dark velvety red color and is very fragrant. Some people describe its scent as sweet or even having a combination of rose and raspberry fragrances. The Mister Lincoln variety offers rich red blossoms which are often 6 inches in diameter. These roses are also very fragrant offering garden visitors a wonderful experience, and the perfect backdrop for wedding photos.
Next to the garden a couple of recent additions to the Villa de Amore wedding estate. The 1931 Moreland wine hauler truck is a popular wedding party photo backdrop. These trucks where built in Burbank, California and where used worldwide in the ranching and agriculture industries.
The Villa’s new ‘Swing’ is also next to the garden in the shade of a stand of Sycamore trees.
This swing was the idea of the Estate owner, Eileen Rivard. “I am always on the look out for new additions which will add to the memorable experience we provide our couples and their guests.” Eileen continues, “I had this old wooden beam from a demolished school house that I thought would make a great swing, and its long enough and strong enough to support quite a few people. I was looking for a support structure since we didn’t have trees large enough and found a both a discarded metal A-frame used at the Long Beach Harbor to lift engines out of boats, and also some old anchor chain just the right size to attach the beam to.”
Even after dark the Villa de Amore Rose Garden is beautiful!
