How Many Guests Can You Have at the Cielo Farms Wedding Venue?
Before you fall in love with a venue, it’s important to know its capacity, and how many guests you anticipate! Cielo Farms can accommodate up to 200 people, so it’s perfect for medium-big celebrations.

Weather & Seasons at Cielo Farms
When it’s time to set a date for your wedding at Cielo Farms, you’ll need to think about the weather! Malibu’s location on the coast of Southern California means that it’s pretty perfect year round.
Summers can get really hot, so the temperatures in the high 80s might be too toasty for an outdoor ceremony. Spring and fall are more mild, offering absolutely idyllic temperatures that are warm, but not too hot! Winters are great for weddings as well, and it never gets too cold in Malibu. Winter is the rainiest season, though there’s an average of just 5 rainy days per month from December to February.
Once you have a season or time frame in mind, it’ll be time to set a date for your wedding at Cielo Farms. Keeping your options open can be helpful, so that you can work with the venue to find a date that they have available! Though Saturday weddings are the most popular, getting married during the week has some advantages to consider – it’ll likely be easier to find an available date, and you’ll get a better rate!
Ceremonies at Cielo Farms
Ceremonies at Cielo Farms typically take place on the lawn, where you can set up an arbor and chairs for your guests, with incredible views of the mountains behind you! The sunsets over the hills are absolutely amazing, and the olive trees surrounding the ceremony space make for a peaceful, serene place to exchange vows.
Receptions at Cielo Farms
For your reception, you can move the party indoors, or stay outside! The rustic stone barn has a gorgeous wooden interior, with a dance floor, room for tables and chairs, a bar, and a loft for you to get ready in.
If you host your reception outdoors, you can celebrate with your loved ones with views of the stunning mountains and vineyards, and the stone barn in the backdrop. The reception space is decorated with string lights, creating a warm, cozy atmosphere for you to dance the night away and spend time with your guests.
