    We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding. This place is a hidden gem and I can’t believe I had not been to a wedding here before my own. We received so many compliments on our choice and working with Ashley Patrick and her team was a pleasure. The best parts about this place that must be seen in person to fully appreciate are the many locations for gorgeous photos and how your guests will be able to be truly together for your entire event. Highly recommend!

    I was married here for my ceremony only in the Drawing Room with a guest count of 95 and had the reception at a resturant. All I can say is this venue is great for a wedding in a beautiful building with so much history. The event manager was fantastic from start to finish and very responsive and professional. I had no concerns the day of my wedding as I knew everything was taken care of. The value for this venue in the Bay Area cannot be beat!
