    Corinthian was on top of it all!

    Renee and the rest of the team at the Corinthian were exceptional, even in the middle of a coordinator change, Renee picked up where the other left off without a hitch. She was amazing and I still have people to this day telling me that this was the best wedding we've been too.

    Beautiful venue in San Jose

    My husband and I live in San Jose and wanted a venue in San Jose for convenience. We also had a vintage theme wedding so the Corinthian was perfect!

    We didn't have much decor in terms of drapes, lighting, etc. so I was worried our wedding would be plainer than the pictures I've seen of weddings there, but it still looked beautiful!

    Jennifer (the event director) was always responsive to my numerous emails and also helpful. Tina (the event coordinator) always made sure we were on top of schedule during the wedding. The waiters, bartenders, and other employees were also great.
