Camille didn’t want what was popular or traditional for their wedding, she envisioned a beautiful blend of Bohemian chic with Moroccan touches.

About The Venue:

The charm and sophistication of Italy comes to life in North County’s newest wedding venue, Tivoli Villa. Nestled in the hills of Bonsall, this hidden gem is the embodiment of the Italian spirit; every detail of this century-old property has lovingly restored by the team behind San Diego’s most successful wedding venues. You and up to 175 guests can leave the city behind and escape to the Tuscan countryside among the bougainvillea-lined adobe walls and olive tree grove. Say a dreamy “I Do” in front of an ancient oak tree, and sip limoncello with your famiglia next to vintage wrought-iron gates as the hills turn shades of pink from a breathtaking sunset. Pass a platter of fresh pasta from Trademark’s extensive farm-to-table menu. Your romantic day comes to a crescendo as you dance in the moonlight under a blanket of market lights!
