Quality of Service

The Monte Verde Inn was the first and only venue that my now-husband and I looked at. We had found it online and seen all sorts of photos and as soon as we saw it in person we knew we didn't need to look anywhere else. My coworker had also gotten married there and spoke very highly of her experience. It is an absolutely beautiful place. The big beautiful redwood trees to provide a canopy over the outdoor ceremony site/dancefloor had me swooning. There are so many different background options for photos too. From the vineyard, to the beautiful old inn, to the fountain, to the tree lined path, and so many more.

Kelly and her team at the MVI are so wonderful to work with. She is an absolute professional and I felt completely comfortable in her hands. She is quick to respond to emails and happily answered any and all questions I had. Working within our somewhat modest budget was never an issue either. She takes away the need for a wedding planner, especially a day-of-coordinator - which is a huge cost-saver and stress reliever. Everything that is included in the cost - dinner, cake, drinks, chairs and tables, table linens, most of the flowers, etc. make it a great value. It may sound more expensive, initially, but when you add up the cost of getting all of those things from individual vendors (especially unforeseen costs like cake serving or having a plated dinner vs buffet), you realize you are saving a lot of money, and a lot of hassle! Which is exactly what I wanted, so that I could stay as stress-free as possible!

The day of the wedding couldn't have run more smoothly. I didn't have to worry about a thing! And someone from her team was always there to make sure I had anything I needed, from a sip of water, to a glass of champagne :) And the food! Kelly's husband, Doug, is a professional chef and cooks the best wedding food you will ever taste! We received so many compliments on what a beautiful, magical, wonderful wedding it was and we couldn't agree more!

The Monte Verde Inn is a first-class location for a glorious garden wedding. Located just nine and a half miles off Interstate 80 from Auburn, this four-bedroom Georgian-style manor house was originally built as a private residence in 1936. It now serves guests from around the world as a charming private boutique wedding venue.

Set in the Sierra foothills, at an elevation of 2200ft we are ideally situated below the winter mountain snow and above the summer valley heat. This grand country estate offers more than six secluded acres of blooming gardens, sculpted hedges, manicured lawns, and a small forest of cedar, pine, and cypress trees. Flowering plum trees line the entrance driveway and the beautifully planted English Country Garden is a riot of color during warm months of the year. An outdoor "chapel" surrounded by 150-year-old incense cedar trees sets the mood and nature provides all the décor you will need for a memorable wedding. Stroll along a quaint path to the vintage barn and romantic vineyard which lends to a picturesque scenic background.



With only one wedding per day our comprehensive packages, all based on per-person pricing are designed to alleviate the stress of the wedding planning process so our couples can truly enjoy their special day. Everything is fully customizable, from the event time, to the menu, the flowers, the linens and the cake, just name a few.  Our in-house wedding coordinator will assist and be here for you from your first tour of the gardens till the final goodbyes of your evening.

 The Monte Verde Inn's cuisine reflects the belief that "good food is always personal"  Our dishes are animated by flavors and textures both familiar and innovative - California Cuisine as it appears to us. Executive Chef Douglas Dalisa believes that his guests need to be comforted by his food as well as the surroundings and service. "The process of finding ingredients and transforming them into cuisine are not separate events, but one continuous action, constantly informed by cultural expectations and new ideas"  It is a glorious setting for Chef Dalisa's hearty, flavorful, beautiful cuisine. Regional world flavors, classical French influenced style and enthralling presentation form the entire experience at the Monte Verde Inn.

We have the customary printed menus available for you perusal via our "downloadable" package brochure. For those more adventurous, keep in mind that Chef Dalisa would be more than happy to create a specially designed experience for you and your guests. Whether it is our standard menus, ethnically or culturally inspired cuisine or a formal multi course wine pairing gastronomic adventure, the same attention to detail, passionate preparation and freshest, highest quality ingredients available will always prevail
