The ‘Father of the Bride’ house in Alhambra can be yours for $2 million

Backyard and wedding scenes for the family comedy "Father of the Bride" were filmed at this Alhambra home, now up for sale at $1.998 million.

If this house in Alhambra sends your nostalgic heart aflutter, there is a good reason for it. The 1920s Colonial was used as a filming location for the 1990s family comedies “Father of the Bride” and “Father of the Bride II.”

Now up for sale at $1.998 million, the house served as the backdrop for the films’ backyard and wedding scenes. Fans of the movies may also recognize the side-yard basketball hoop, where Steve Martin and Kimberly Williams-Paisley’s characters faced off in one-on-one games.

Interestingly enough, a similar-looking house in Pasadena is depicted as the home’s exterior in both films.

Set along a tree-lined street, the two-story house has traditional curb appeal. Black shutters create visual contrast to crisp white siding, and a curved portico/balcony extends over the front entry. Rounded pillars flank a classic red-hued front door.


In addition to a living room, there’s a formal entry, a dining room, an updated kitchen and a sunroom with a decorative Batchelder tile fountain. An office/den features handsome wood floors, paneled walls and a brick-lined fireplace.

The master suite has another fireplace and a glass-enclosed shower for a total of four and 3.25 bathrooms in nearly 4,400 square feet.

French doors open to a covered patio lined in Saltillo tile. Lawns, mature trees, a three-car garage and a detached bonus room also lie within grounds of about half an acre.


The house has changed hands a couple of times over the years, most recently selling three years ago for $1.275 million. More than a decade earlier it went for $1.25 million.

Ann Gluck of Compass holds the listing agent.
