Absolutely EXCELLENT venue
I could not have asked for a more professional, organized, excellent venue for my wedding this past October. We were doing a multicultural wedding and were really only looking at Palm Events Center and Casa Real as our options for our ~250 guests. We booked almost 15 months in advance and got one of the last peak season wedding dates in late October.
I could go on and on about how great Casa Real is but I'll keep it to a few simple points:
TEAM: Kara, Marlena, and Nicole are top of line event planners, people managers, and venue coordinators. They are highly responsive, even with the most minute of details. They are always willing to help out and offer information and guidance where asked for. I did not hire a wedding planner and relied on Casa Real and a day of coordinator (Marlena) to plan and execute the wedding. It was a lot of work but would not have been possible without the expert help of the venue and its team. They didn't miss a beat in terms of communicating with us and among each other. We used a lot of the vendors recommended by Casa Real and the familiarity they had with working together really made the planning process smooth. I've had at least one vendor tell me that they wouldn't have worked with me without a wedding planner if not for the great reputation of Casa Real.
VENUE: We had a long and complex day and were doing two ceremonies and given Casa Real's large space were able to do one ceremony in the gorgeous Sun Garden and the second ceremony in the Amber room. The flow of the space and crowd management led by Marlena was absolutely expert. Our guests were seamlessly led from one room/ part of the wedding to the other without much difficulty or issue. This made for the SMOOTHEST guest experience.
MULTICULTURAL: Casa Real gave flexibility to me to bring in my own caterer since I wanted Indo-Chinese catering. They also had a stage I could use for the mandap. They also had a perfectly nice route among the vineyards in the front of the venue for my husband's baraat (where he rides in on a horse). Their snack and food choices included cool things like boba tea and mexican churros with hot chocolate.
SERVICE: I mean they set up everything. When the rentals came in, Casa Real's team was on it setting up tables and linens and plates and gifts in accordance with how I laid it out. It was perfect.
CONNECTION: Casa Real's team really does their best to help you execute a perfect wedding and for that I am so grateful. They really do have their couples (especially their brides) top of mind all the time. And they don't make you feel crazy even if you might be crazy.
I love this venue and its team! Thank you for helping me plan an amazing wedding!Sent on 12/27/2019

Perfect venue for Indian wedding and reception!
Casa Real was the perfect venue for our ~300 person Indian wedding this past May - and we cannot say enough positive things about our experience there.Sent on 12/31/2019
To start with the venue:
It is gorgeous, both indoors and outdoors. Each room has architectural and furniture details that add character, and the outdoor spaces are tastefully landscaped. When all of these spaces are opened up (for example, during a reception), it gives guests plenty of options to mingle and roam per their needs.
It has a number of different areas that can accommodate multiple different potential flows for your event and large groups of people without feeling intimidating or claustrophobic. For us, having different areas to do the Baraat, Ceremony, and Reception was important, and Casa Real could accommodate all of these needs.
It is located in the heart of the Pleasanton vineyards, and is relatively easy to get to from multiple parts of the Bay Area.
All of the indoor and outdoor spaces can be used in multiple different ways - this was important to us as we wanted to have an outdoor ceremony, but also wanted the flexibility to move it indoors should the weather be less than ideal. Casa Real’s variety of spaces made it possible to execute this plan B when it actually did rain the day of our wedding.
What really set Casa Real apart for us was the engaging and wonderful staff:
They are completely on top of the details and help guide you through the planning process from the moment you sign the contract.
They are responsive, proactive, and have a positive attitude, from dealing with concerns to brainstorming solutions to problems.
They are extremely attentive to their clients’ needs, creatively finding ways to meet requests and working with you to make sure the day meets your vision while still being logistically feasible.
They have a wide variety of preferred vendors who can help transform the space for whatever vibe you are going for in your event.
They have been doing this for a while, and have seen quite a bit, and so are prepared for almost every eventuality - case in point, our last minute changes when it was raining on our wedding day.
Casa Real made our dream wedding a reality - and we cannot thank them enough for it!
