Perfect reception spot!
We are so happy that we had our wedding reception at Ardenwood. The venue is conveniently located in the Bay Area but feels like it's a million miles away. The farm has such a wonderful rustic charm that created the perfect backdrop to celebrate our wedding.
One of the best parts of having our wedding at Ardenwood was working with the planning team. Claire and Lindsey were so responsive and worked with us to create such a special day. We felt like we were in such good hands! Additionally, the Adrenwood team has curated a great list of recommended vendors that was very helpful during our planning process.
Oh and I also need to mention that our guests raved about the food!Sent on 11/17/2019

Beautiful Wedding Venue + Helpful Coordinators
We both cannot thank Claire & Lindsey enough for making our wedding day absolutely perfect! They played a huge part in making everything come together with our vision and working with our vendors. We had unique requests for our wedding day which they were flexible in accommodating. Their professionalism and attentiveness to our needs helped ease any stress or anxious feelings that surfaced. One detail to be aware of is that if you have a summer wedding there will be bugs/mosquitos, so be prepared to have a few bites. Claire and Lindsey had bug spray available for our guests however we were surprised at how many of our guests were bitten. Other than that the venue itself provided the perfect backyard theme we were going for and the food and appetizers were delicious.Sent on 12/23/2019

Amazing!!!! Thank You so Much!!
We had an awesome experience with Ardenwood historical farms and Palmdale Estates. Our team of coordinators went far beyond our expectations for our wedding day. Lindsey and Claire were extremely helpful and knowledgeable on all accounts, whether it was assisting us making decisions based on our preferences of decorations to food choices. They were a bubbly group that was friendly but more importantly, professional. Committing to someone forever and planning your big day can be a nerve-racking and stressful task but they simply took a lot of the stress off of you in what can be a bombardment of difficult questions and tough decisions. They were truly an amazing team, all the way to the very end! I would recommend them to anyone that is looking for a Perfect day to allow you and your significant other to have the exact celebration they are looking for!! 11 out of 10 in my book! Thank you So much!!Sent on 11/18/2019

Ardenwood is a Bay Area hidden gem! The property is expansive and there are so many options for set up. I love an outdoor venue with lots of natural light and beautiful landscaping and if thats what your looking for, Ardenwood is the venue for you. Lindsey was so kind and easy to work with... I can't wait to hopefully book more weddings here in 2018!
Ardenwood is one of my favorite wedding venues to photograph. There are so many little pockets to tuck in to to get gorgeous photos. The ceremony sites and reception areas are so pretty! Not to mention, Lindsey is a blast to work with! All of the staff there is tremendously accommodating and you can really tell that they all love what they do.
