One of my favorite movies to watch with my family is the Father of the Bride. It is such a heartwarming story and Steve Martin as the overprotective father is perfect. A favorite hobby of mine is visiting filming locations in person and I was ecstatic to finally make it to the home of the Banks Family. The Father of the Bride house is located in Pasadena. A short drive from the location stated in the movie.

Address for the Father of the Bride House
843 South El Molino Avenue in Pasadena is the official address. I love how much the house still looks like it did in the movie. It is located on such a charming street and seems like such a fantastic family home.
There is a second house that they used for the basketball games that is located at 500 North Almansor Road in Alhambra. I had mistakenly thought this house was the one used in the movie and I was confused about how it looked so different. Luckily, a friend who is a Pasadena native helped me figure out which house was which.

As a huge Father of the Bride fan I was dying to see this home in person. #fatherofthebride #houseexteriors #homesofig #famoushomes #iconichome #classichomes #moviehomes #socalhomes #losangeleshomes #hollywoodhomes #pasadenacharm #explorelosangeles #pasadenacalifornia #visitpasadena #filminglocationslosangeles #filminglocations #movielocation #welikela #instaworthyla
This house is where Annie and George played basketball in the driveway. But, the backyard wedding reception was filmed in a much bigger yard in Alhambra.
I truly wish that famous homes from movies were all turned into air bnbs or event spaces so that the public could enjoy them. I would love to throw a bridal shower at this iconic house. If you enjoy visiting famous houses you might enjoy stopping by the Boy Meets World House.
Have you ever seen the original Father of the Bride movie with Elizabeth Taylor and Spencer Tracy? I’ve only seen the remake which I adore but it would be nice to check out the original. And if you’ve never seen Father of the Bride 2 I highly recommend it. I was on my way to the 626 Night Market when I stopped to find this beautiful house.
