Here's Where You Can Visit The House From Father Of The Bride

The 90s were a prime era for romantic comedies, and none did it quite like the 1991 film "Father of the Bride." A remake of the 1950 movie of the same name, the film is set in San Marino, California, and stars funnyman Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, and Kimberly Williams-Paisley. The story follows George Banks (Martin) as he deals with the ups and downs of finding out his daughter, Annie (Williams-Paisley), is about to get married, according to the film's IMDb. Hijinx and comedy ensue as George comes to terms with the fact that his daughter is no longer a little girl.

When reminiscing about the classic film, fans will undoubtedly talk about the fantastic Banks family home. Set in the suburbs of San Marino, the house was pivotal to the plot of this film and the 1995 sequel "Father of the Bride Part II." In the first installment, the family chooses to hold the wedding at their gorgeous traditional Colonial-style home. With the help of outlandish wedding designer Franck Eggelhoffer (played by Martin Short), they pull off a magical wedding, but not without its fair share of twists and hilarious turns. Now, you can catch a glimpse of the home where the film was shot. However, you might need to make more than one trip.

One of the locations of the family home from Father of the Bride

Fans of the "Father of the Bride" movies know how integral the Banks family home was to the plot. Not only was it the location where Annie was married, but in the second film, George sells the memorable house during a midlife crisis. However, after finding out that not only is his daughter pregnant, but he and his wife Nina (played by the legendary Diane Keaton) are also expecting, he scrambles to get the long-time family home back.

If you're a diehard fan, you can stop at the residence located at 843 S El Molino Avenue in Pasadena, California. The beautiful white facade of the eight-bedroom, 4,339 square foot single-family home looks just like it did in the film, according to views from the Zillow listing. However, some people might not know that this home only served as the frontal view in the movie. The inside shots of the house were filmed on a movie set that was torn apart after the shooting, with producers not expecting a sequel. Once production began for the second movie, they had to rebuild the set from the ground up, according to IMDb. Although this iconic backdrop is a private residence, it doesn't stop super fans from respectfully grabbing a quick picture or video as they drive past.

Check out the other home where Father of the Bride was filmed

If you want to get the full "Father of the Bride" home visit experience, you only need to travel two miles down the road until you reach 500 N Almansor Street in Alhambra, California. This is the location where they filmed the iconic backyard wedding scenes, according to Velvet Ropes, and in 2016 the home was sold for just under $2 million. The 4,397-square-foot Colonial-style dwelling has five bedrooms and four bathrooms and features lovely columns paired with ornate rounded glass windows. High ceilings and smooth wood flooring continue throughout the space decorated with beautiful details around the door frames and walls, as seen in pictures of the home's listing on Zillow. It's too bad that the filming wasn't done within the walls of this gorgeous home because there are plenty of wonderful touches to be appreciated.

However, it wasn't just the wedding scenes that were filmed in its spacious backyard. Fans will also see the driveway where George and Annie bonded while playing basketball. Although it's not the same basketball net used in the production, there is still a hoop in the same spot. Unfortunately, the home is not currently for sale, but you can still relive your movie fantasies by visiting both locations featured in "Father of the Bride."
