In the early part of the twentieth century, Lord and Lady Anderson purchased the land which now comprises the 43-acre Highlands County Park, located in the San Lorenzo Valley just north of Santa Cruz. They built an English-style mansion on the property and named it "The Highlands," in honor of Lord Anderson's Scottish heritage. Today the grand mansion of Highland House and beautifully landscaped grounds offers a charming wedding venue for your special day. Imagine meeting your beloved at the end of a flower petal-lined brick patio aisle and promising your love for one another under an archway canopy covered in flowers and vines. This quaint setting offers an intimate feel in a lush garden, and your wedding party and guests will enjoy the exclusive privacy of the park and its banquet facilities. Your event package includes use of three grand rooms and a bar area, so your friends and family can toast your new life together in style!
