East of Los Angeles, in the foothills of the Sierra Pelona mountains and surrounded by the Angeles National Forest lies a hidden gem; Shadowland Weddings and Events. Shadowland is a twenty-five minute drive from Santa Clarita with breathtaking views of the canyons. It is well worth the drive.
Shadowland is an oasis in the dessert. The lushness of the property, filled with trees, plants, gorgeous landscaping and amazing backdrops is quite unexpected. This venue has 11 acres of beautiful vistas with many small intimate areas. For example; the meditation and prayer garden is a wonderful spot for a Pop Up Wedding or Elopement!
As you tour the property you can feel the peace and uplifting energy.
A very unique element of this venue is that the owners Paul and Colette Pondella raise socialized wolves and created Shadowland Foundation. There are ten wolves and they are Alaskan Timber Wolves. I had the privilege of meeting all of them and they are very friendly. The wolves live on a fenced side of the property and are only out if they are supervised or are going to be part of an educational program, a wedding or a photo shoot. The wolves are majestic and are all colors and sizes. For an extra fee you can use these wolves to be part of your wedding party or just get pictures with them. As I said, it is very unique.
Paul and Colette have a passion to save the wolves and to instruct others using wolf pack behaviors. The wolves aid in educating others on topics such as unity, communication, unconditional acceptance, patience and loyalty. It is remarkable!
Colette is a Minister of Religious Science and facilitates programs for adults and children. In her earlier career, she was in the entertainment industry. Paul has been rescuing and training wild animals his entire life. He is also a well known arborist and owns a company in LA. This tranquil, healing and event space they have created makes for an unforgettable experience.
Whether your vision is for a small intimate ceremony, a pop up wedding, an elopement, or a large gathering, many locations are available. There are several tent sites, a barn building and a patio (that can be tented) and everything is surrounded by flowers, with the wonderful smell of sweet jasmine wafting through the air.
As part of the package; you have use of a quaint cottage that sleeps up to eight, reception tables and chairs, a commercial kitchen, bathrooms, parking and an integrated speaker system that plays everywhere on the property for music and dancing.
This property has it all! Call today for packages and pricing.
