Offering an elegant backdrop in an enchanting setting, The Fillmore on Central blends the old-world charm and character of the historic Heritage Valley region, with a uniquely updated feel. It is an unforgettable destination to celebrate your wedding as both an outdoor and indoor venue that features approximately 20,000 square feet of event space and an iconic 80-foot tower, which can be seen from miles away.
Gated and lined with privacy hedges and California pepper trees, along with thoughtful landscaping, The Fillmore feels like an exclusive retreat from the moment you step inside. Special historic details throughout the property have been meticulously preserved, while thoughtful updates to the interior and exterior offer a clean canvas to customize every aspect of your wedding.
Whether enjoying an open-air ceremony in the romantic courtyard, dining under the 40-foot lofted ceilings in The Sanctuary, or treating guests to an after-party or lounge beneath The Sanctuary in 88below, this unique wedding venue allows couples to create their perfect day amidst a variety of event spaces.
A private and secluded landscaped courtyard at the heart of The Fillmore has been transformed into a dreamy oasis for open-air ceremonies. The natural grass courtyard is lined with privet, pepper trees and touches of lavender and surrounded by a Spanish tile roofline. As the sun sets, add in your own ambient lighting or market lights to create an even more romantic atmosphere in this ceremony venue before retreating to The Sanctuary.
The church’s Sanctuary now serves as a grand indoor venue and offers a neutral backdrop to customize your event, while maintaining exquisite architectural details to elevate your experience. Authentic black Mission-style doors capped with stone scrollwork at the base of the tower open to a room framed by sculpted columns and archways with intricate detail work and embossing at the top of each pillar.
Stained-glass and leaded windows have been restored to allow for natural sunlight to stream in and capture the surrounding mountain views. Original, 40-foot lofted, hand-painted exposed timber ceilings create a dramatic, open and airy feeling, enhanced by mission white plaster walls.
The Sanctuary’s icon is a thoughtfully preserved, original 20-foot stained glass medallion that rises above the altar. The great room also includes the original refurbished oak, hardwood floors and classic chandeliers for an old-world elegance and turn of the century feel.
Beneath The Sanctuary lies 88below, a chic enclave perfect for intimate dining, an after-party, dancing and/or lounge. Massive, metal framed mirrors line one wall and are positioned opposite to the room’s windows to enhance the natural light during the day and provide a moody setting at night. A beamed ceiling and modern pendant lighting complete the space.
Inside the historic building, the Hastings Suite and Room 1929 serve as the perfect respite for the bridal party to get ready, put the finishing touches on their look or step away throughout the night. Located in separate wings of the property, each offers a larger living room, designed to be a beautiful backdrop for pre-wedding photos, along with additional side chambers that can be used in a myriad of ways.
