Historic/Landmark Building


The Dana Cultural Center is a wonderful venue option for your beautiful wedding ceremony and reception. Located in historic Nipomo, the Dana Adobe is a stunning outdoor event setting offering a rustic and inviting ambience. Imagine walking down the aisle towards the altar set in front of a giant, statuesque Sycamore tree while your family and friends lovingly gaze on. Saying your “I Dos” surrounded by the picturesque, natural Southern California landscape embraced by the beaming sun, clear, cloudless skies, and wide, open space will be truly unforgettable. Wedding photos taken in front of the traditional adobe house with the setting sun streaming purples and golds across the sky will be gorgeous and create perfect physical memories of your special day. For your reception, you and your guests will be able to celebrate outside in the warm, balmy California night air as twinkle lights strung across the surrounding trees create a dim, romantic light over your event. The beauty and views that the Dana Cultural Center has to offer your wedding day and celebration are simply incomparable.
