A dream! Smooth, easy, professional
Elliston's staff definitely knows what they're doing and it's obvious everyone who works in the wedding department loves their job. We got assigned to Kimberly about 2 months prior to the wedding, but they do have staff to answer any questions prior to getting assigned a coordinator.
Kimberly was literally an ANGEL. I will never forget when I walked in for a meeting and she asked how everything was going and I said I was stressed. She looked at me with a calm and warm voice and said "why?". Her demeanor and confidence in all the details instantly made me feel at ease and I trusted that I had a good team on my hands. We appreciated her honesty when we were selecting our meal/appetizer items and she was so knowledgeable about every detail! I didn't hire a wedding planner, and trust me when I say you don't need one! Planning a wedding is bound to have stressful moments, but when I look back on this experience, it wasn't as stressful as I had imagined it to be. I'm confident that it is because Kimberly and Elliston staff took care of a lot of things that brides would normally have to figure out on their own. Would I do it all over again? In a heartbeat!
Thank you to Kimberly :) and the rest of Elliston's team that made our wedding day easily one of the best days of our life! I miss it so much already!
Excellent venue choice!
Our Wedding Was a Success!
Our Day-of Coordinator was Tiffani, and she was wonderful to work with! She was knowledgeable about the venue, and provided many great tips to plan ahead so our day went as smoothly as possible. She was also very responsive to all our questions and many emails! We sent her pics of how we wanted our table decor set up, and all the Elliston staff paid special attention to all the specific details we wanted.
Also wanted to give a special thank you to Donna for opening up the mansion to us a bit early so we could take pictures indoors instead of out in the rain! The rainy weather was a big surprise, but Elliston was a big help in adjusting and keeping our day special and magical.
Finally, the food. Yummy scalloped potatoes! Many of our guests came back for more servings! Also, the salmon was fresh and cooked to perfection. Many of our guests raved about the salmon. Overall, the food tasted much better when compared to when we went to the food tasting. High value for price.

Elliston is not only beautiful all year round, they have an amazing staff who takes care of all their couples and vendors alike. I've only had the pleasure of capturing a few weddings and session at Elliston so far but look forward to many more! The historical mansion is perfect for that classic feel and the event center is that modern twist, making this the perfect venue for almost any look or feel.
Elliston Vineyards is a beautiful venue tucked into Sunol among the rolling hills. The mansion is quaint and beautiful, with a rich history to it. The flowing fountains make wonderful backdrops for photos and video as well. Most importantly though besides the beauty of the venue the staff is wonderfully friendly and everything they do, they seem to do the right way.
Elliston Vineyards is a truly unique and beautiful space! The event specialists are on top of everything and their staff is always smiling! The lighting and space is so gorgeous inside the buildings and within the grounds! I always enjoy meeting my bridal clients here!
