Gorgeous ceiling swag
On February 23rd, The Castle Green Events Department hosted its 1st Annual Bridal Brunch! The idea for the brunch came about at the end of last year while The Castle Green Design Committee was making beautiful decor enhancements around the building.
They had completely revamped the Bride’s Room by replacing the old carpet with new carpet that matched the freshly painted walls and stained glass windows. Extra accents such as new crystals on the chandelier and gorgeous frames for the vintage Victorian wedding photographs have really improved this special space.
The floor on the east side of the ballroom which is commonly used as the dance floor, used to be dark and cracked, with a cold feel. It was decided that the old cracks would be filled, and a specialist came in to make the floor the same color as the other side which has original tiles. The room now looks more harmonious and warm.

True Blood filmed at Castle Green Pasadena, CA
For HBO’s True Blood fans, we have a treat for you! True Blood season 5 not only offers more drama and intrigue with the introduction of some new
characters, but clips of this season’s second episode was filmed at the Historic Castle Green! On last week’s episode (True Blood Season 5:50 “Authority Always Wins) Pam returns to Fangtasia, the vampire bar she co-owns with Eric. There, she remembers her human days at the turn of the century; she operated a brothel. The “brothel” was actually set in our very own “turn of the century” building in the fantastic Moorish room. Some of the furniture was brought in to make the brothel element look more authentic, but clearly, you can see the brilliant reddish walls and instantly recognize one of the most favored rooms in the entire Castle! Click on the link below and jump to minute 2:37 in the timeline and see if you can recognize it. For fans who have not yet been to the Castle Green, Like us on Facebook and get information on our next public tour! See for yourself what inspiration this old building brings! Continue reading

It is nice to see Jackie Chan is still kicking! This V8 commercial was filmed in the apartment right above the ballroom at the Historic Castle Green. The patio is portrayed in the first scene, and the kitchen of the same unit is in the second scene. Believe it or not, for this short commercial, it took 5 days and one really large crane to remove the lovely garden that was there. Though Jackie is known for his expert fighting skills, he was accompanied by several body guards. He was too quick to snag an autograph…perhaps it is all the V8 vitamins he’s drinking!
Audi of America is filming a new car commercial
at Castle Green, Pasadena January 2011.
We pride ourselves on a number of unique and special affairs at the Castle Green. From nonprofit organization galas like the Pasadena Children’s Guild’s Winter Wonderland event last year and music videos like “This Ain’t No Love Song” by the well-renowned Trace Atkins, to Microsoft’s own Bill Gates’ large company party and everything in between, Castle Green is the only one of its kind and truly an exceptional venue for any type of filming or event.
