Literal Dream Come True!
Beautiful venue with great food
Fantastic venue & awesome coordinators!
From our initial tour to the evening of our wedding, Claire and Stephanie were absolutely awesome to work with. They are both super professional, quick to respond to any of my million questions, organized, and friendly. Coming from a project management background, I was delighted and impressed with just how helpful they were in making sure our wedding was well-executed. They provided sample timelines, checklists, their own personal advice/recommendations...definitely went above and beyond. They also provide a list of in-house vendors, which made it easier for us to choose, and it helped that the vendors were familiar with the venue.
I couldn't have asked for a better team, and I highly recommend this venue!

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.
