Working with Leila throughout the planning process was an absolute joy, and we can't thank her and her staff enough for their professionalism and the seamless execution of our special day. The venue's location was easy for our guests to find, and it was conveniently close to the Bay Area, allowing most of them to drive back home after the wedding.
This was truly the venue of our dreams and exceeded all our expectations. We feel incredibly fortunate to have celebrated our special day in such a beautiful place.
