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.
