About | Wedgewood Weddings


Our story, our philosophy and our culture.

The Story of Wedgewood

Wedgewood Weddings was founded in 1986 by John and Linda Zaruka in Ventura, California. At the original Wedgewood John ran the banquets, Linda coordinated the weddings, and their children Bill and Stacy served dinners, poured drinks and washed dishes. In 2005 the Zarukas decided to expand their business and brought their all-inclusive, customizable wedding packages first to North California and eventually across the nation. Wedgewood now operates over 40 wedding venues and hosts thousands of events a year. The Zaruka family still runs the business.

The Zaruka Family - About Wedgewood Weddings
Wedgewood Weddings philosophy


Weddings can be stressful and expensive. Here at Wedgewood Weddings we firmly believe that there is a better way. With our all-inclusive packages, proven professionalism and deep commitment to customer service you can have the wedding you want at a price that makes sense. With Wedgewood Weddings you don’t have to compromise – get the venue you want, the service you deserve, at the price you need.


The Wedgewood Weddings Team, aka the ‘Wedgies’, are a force of nature. We get to spend our days (and nights) helping people in love plan the most important, most joyous day of their lives. We are so lucky! So we work hard, we obsess over the details, we go above and beyond, and we have a blast doing it. To be a Wedgie you have to be fun. Sour Sally need not apply.
