Father of the Bride House

fatherofbride.jpegHad a request today from a co-worker to post the location of the Father of the Bride  house .  Even though in the movie Steve Martin proclaims that he lives in the town of San Marino, his character’s home is actually located a short distance north of San Marino, in Pasadena.  The home is beautiful in person, and looks exactly the same as it did in the movie.  But rumor has it that before filming began the house was in bad shape.  The filmmakers came in and repainted the exterior, added new landscaping and a white picket fence, and the rest, as they say, is movie history.  The house came up for sale in 1999 and the realtor marketed it as the “Father of the Bride House” causing “stalkers” to flock to the open house in droves!  I so wish I had lived in Southern California at that time so I could have toured it!

The filmmakers also returned to the same house in 1995 to shoot the sequel, Father of the Bride II.

I discovered this filming location in “The Ultimate Hollywood Tour Book” by William A. Gordon – a must have stalking guide for Southern California!

Stalk It:  The Father of the Bride house is located at 843 S. El Molino Ave. in Pasadena, off of Colorado Blvd.  You can purchase “The Ultimate Hollywood Tour Book” on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Hollywood-Tour-Book-Incomparable/dp/0937813087/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1199855012&sr=8-2.  The book is updated and republished with new information almost every year.  And yes, I have almost every updated version.  🙂

    Question… is Ian’s house, on 90210, the same house as the McKinsey (in-laws) house on Father of the Bride?

  5. No – Ian’s house is The Iny Estate located in Encino. The McKinsey’s house from Father of the Bride is actually Sonny and Cher’s former home located at 364 St. Cloud Road in Bel Air.
