Gorgeous Venue!

I am still in awe of this venue whenever I look back at our wedding pictures. We loved everything about Retreat to the Farm. I had stumbled upon RTTF on Instagram and upon our first tour, we knew it was the one. We got married this past May, and it was the perfect time because all the flowers around the venue had bloomed and we were fortunate with the weather. It is a very well-maintained property and our guests still rave about the venue to this day.

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.

Amazing Wedding Venue

This venue was fantastic! The owner was so easy to work with and was great at accommodating request. My guest cannot stop talking about how gorgeous my wedding venue was. What I loved so much is we were able to have it for the whole weekend. Do our rehearsal the night before with some pretty set up, then the wedding the next day and had time to relax and not rush, and then the next day time to pack up and load everything. Loved this place so much!
