Fantastic rehearsal dinner
We had a rehearsal dinner (buffet) for 35 guest at the Edison Ford Museum. Our guests (adults, kids, engineers, and non-scientists alike) all really enjoyed looking at the exhibits in the museum and the backdrop of bougainvillea and bayon trees outside and Model Ts and historic phonographs inside, made for terrific photos.Sent on 01/21/2020
The site event managers - Kelsi Toland and Cori Cramsey were always extremely responsive, answering emails and questions within a few hours! Most impressively, when the catering accidentally forgot half of the tables and linens for our guests (which we found out about 5 minutes before our guests were arriving!), the staff at Edison and Ford jumped into action and got us four additional tables and matching linens within 15 minutes. It was so quickly and flawlessly executed, and our guest were so engaged in the exhibits as they arrived, no one even found out and we could serve dinner on time!

Great wedding reception - venue and staff A+
Cori and Kelsi did a great job with our daughter's wedding. It was an outside reception in December when it rarely rains. However, we had some bad weather, but the team was able to seamlessly adjust and work through the rain. The Edison-Ford team was great to work with as they were very flexible and accommodating. The venue was beautiful.Sent on 01/07/2020

We have shot many portrait sessions, weddings and other events at this location. It is always a pleasure to work with the staff at the Edison & Ford Estate. The property is kept beautiful year round, its hard to take a bad photo while at this location.
Great location and staff. We first did our 1st Edison Estate wedding back in 2009 at their property and they have always been professional.
Every wedding I have seen here is absolutely perfect. The venue is gorgeous and the staff is so friendly and helpful!
