So there once was a beautiful venue here in Paso Robles called Villa Toscana. Gorgeous Tuscan architecture, green landscaping, and to-die-for rooms. Sadly, it shut down with the economic problems several years ago. However, in a happy change, it is under new ownership/management and has reopened for weddings! I’m not entirely sure what the new name is…if they still use Villa Toscana, or if CaliPaso Winery will be their new name (it was on all the property signs). Regardless, the place is still amazing!

Laura and Jared were not originally supposed to get married here. Instead, they were going to be at Eagle Castle. But, the economy problems caused Eagle Castle to go out of the winery business too, just a few months before Laura and Jared’s wedding date. In a scramble, they found out that Villa Toscana (CaliPaso Winery) had just reopened and had their date available. Win-win situation.
I’m so happy that everything worked out for them. The date was great fun, and Brad…you know there’s a couple dance floor pictures of you that I’m saving for just the right time.
