Beautiful Venue & Incredible Staff
The absolute best decision we made!
-The grounds are GORGEOUS, especially at night. Honestly photos don't even do the space justice. Everything is well-maintained and immaculate, with the garden lush and in full bloom from April to October. But the space really comes alive when the sun goes down and all the lights come on. One word: VIBEY. You don't even really need to worry about decor; the place is so beautiful on its own.
-Everything was EASY. Brownstone staff are all pros. I worked with Tena and Jaime, and they were so communicative, patient, and so sweet. I dropped off my decor the day before, and on the day of everything was set up beautifully. You can really trust them to execute.
-The food was DELICIOUS. Wilma Lott is their preferred caterer and they delivered. Everything was cooked to perfection and we got so many comments from guests saying they loved the food.
-Compared to other wedding venues in the Bay Area: AFFORDABLE. Also their payment plans are uncomplicated. Give your approximate guest count, they give you a quote, divide that quote by the number of months until your event, and that's your monthly payment. It was so nice to be able to spread payments out over time.
I personally have not attended any fully-outdoor weddings before and having ours here felt very unique. Not only that, but coming out of a pandemic, it felt safer having the event in open air. The weather was perfect on our day, and everything flowed without a hitch. Our guests were wowed by the venue. I'll always remember dancing under the night sky, among Brownstone's lush garden and gorgeous lights.
Brownstone Gardens was the perfect venue for our best day ever and we'll remember it forever.
Absolutely the Best Decision

We have photographed many weddings at Brownstone Gardens and can't say enough good things about this venue. It is a family run business and they are very friendly, caring and knowledgeable. We love the lush settings this venue offers for photography backdrops. At night the reception area and dance floor are lit by an amazing canopy of lights strung above in trees. Brides looking for a fairy tail wedding should check out Brownstone Gardens.
