What’s more special and intimate than a sweet inn tucked in the mountain town of Ojai and celebrating your nuptials at that inn with your closest family and friends? Ixchtel and Eric kept it small but special. They opted for family style meal service, allowing all to choose exactly what they wanted and kept the focus on delicious food, enjoying each other.
