The city is one booking away this year from hitting the 2005-2006 record of 42 event rentals at the Rengstorff House, said senior recreation coordinator Kristina Perino. Only 21 bookings were made last year.
"Rengstorff House Unveiled" will bring the local wedding industry to the [http://www.r-house.org/ restored 1867 home of Henry Rengstorff] in Shoreline Park for a bridal fair on Saturday, April 21, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. There will be twice as many vendors as last year's event: a throng of florists, caterers, photographers, makeup artists, cake-bakers, wedding organizers and consultants, limo services and even a company that specializes in renting vintage ware. There will also be free caterer tastings.
The event is also pitched as an open house, showcasing the "hip, vintage and price-conscious" Rengstorff House venue, which accommodates 150 people. Surrounded by a 750-acre park, it is "one of the finest examples of Victorian Italianate architecture on the West Coast," according to Perino.
Renting the Rengsorff House on a weekend costs $200 an hour.
Perino said this summer's "prime" Saturday dates are booked up for the house, and there's already interest in the summer of 2013.
