Wedgewood Weddings was founded in 1986 by John and Linda Zaruka in Ventura, California. At the original Wedgewood John ran the banquets, Linda coordinated the weddings, and their children Bill and Stacy served dinners, poured drinks and washed dishes. In 2005 the Zarukas decided to expand their business and brought their all-inclusive, customizable wedding packages first to North California and eventually across the nation. Wedgewood now operates over 40 wedding venues and hosts thousands of events a year. The Zaruka family still runs the business.
