Love at first sight was my reaction when I stumbled across Palmdale Estates while searching for a venue for our Great Gatsby inspired wedding. Seeing it in person is unbelievable and beyond our wildest dreams! The venue has been there since 1915; you can feel the nostalgic history, and appreciate the underlining charm the location entails.

The food was divine and the service/staff impeccable. Everyone was so attentive, kind, and passionate about what they do. I thanked my lucky stars to be able to work with Lindsey Caravelli. The kindness/love and dedication she put into making it the best day possible for us literally brought me to tears. We knew right away that she was our dream wedding event manager. You can sense the love, respect and adoration that she has for the venue herself. It was not a sales pitch, which absolutely sealed the deal for us.

We cannot express our gratitude enough to Lindsey for making our dream wedding a reality. She was so sweet, honest and did not negate any details. Having her for support and advice was by far the best decision we made. She started our beginning journey as newlyweds on a positive note and we feel confident that the positive momentum will continue.

Palmdale Estates provided the perfect backdrop for our ideal summer wedding and Lindsey made August 21, 2015 the best day of our lives and we are forever grateful.

Originally part of the Old Mission San Jose garden, Palmdale Estates is a beautifully landscaped site, featuring dozens of stately palms and native California trees, verdant lawns, gardens and even a pond. In the midst of this lovely setting is Best House, a Tudor-style mansion whose delightful interior and grounds create a storybook backdrop for weddings any time of year.

Built in 1915, the house reflects much of the elegant, ornate detailing of the period: graceful arched doorways, bas-relief ceiling moldings, crystal chandeliers, hand painted murals and gleaming hardwood floors. The Ballroom, though the largest space in the house, still has an intimate feeling with cream-colored walls, an oversized decorative marble fireplace and a huge leaded glass window overlooking the gardens. At one end of the Ballroom, a few steps take you up to The Music Room, a glitzy alcove with gold leaf walls and colorful stained glass window. At the other end are the formal Dining Room and Solarium, two light and airy rooms with an abundance of leaded glass windows and views of the "backyard".

When you get married here, you have exclusive use of the main floor of the house as well as the adjacent lawns to orchestrate your wedding any way you like. During warm months, most couples tie the knot in the white gazebo on the rear lawn, which is bordered by pines, redwoods and dotted with palms and fruit trees. They have their reception outdoors as well, setting up tables in the grassy expanse next to the gazebo. Afterwards, the guests are invited inside for dancing and cake cutting. In winter, receptions are generally held in the Ballroom, with the other spaces used according to the couple's preferred fluid floor plan which offers plenty of flexibility. (Note that Starr Gardens, behind the adjacent Peach mansion, is available for ceremonies and receptions.) Whether you celebrate under the magnificent palms or in the grand surroundings of Best House, you can't help but enjoy the quiet beauty of Palmdale Estates.
