The Falkirk is the perfect site for a wedding and reception. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and the Victorian mansion is a true masterpiece- all make for some fantastic photos! The staff were a pleasure to work with, super responsive and very accommodating. I would highly recommend the site to anyone looking to host a party, wedding, or other special event! Thank you Falkirk Staff (Michael, Risa & Valerie)!Sent on 05/16/2017

If you're tired of hotel ballroom or winery weddings that all seem the same, or if you just want a venue with a bit more character and charm, you need to take a look at Falkirk.Sent on 09/15/2016
We wanted a venue that was unique and a wedding that was laid-back and fun for everyone, which can be tough when you have guests from 8mo-80ys of age. Falkirk delivered - the house and grounds are beautiful, and the layout is perfect. With all the different, yet connected, spaces, guests can dance, talk, eat, or rest their feet in different areas/volume levels without ever feeling like they are missing out on the party. I can't even count how many times people came up to us at the wedding (or have since called us) to say how much they loved the venue.
The property is managed through the City of San Rafael, and all of those we dealt with throughout the process were wonderful (Special thank you to Michael who was our main on-site contact and also did all our walk-throughs with us. We so very much appreciated his honesty and insights, and of course helpfulness). In case that isn't enough, the cost was very reasonable, and was certainly worth every penny!
For reference, we had 80 people in attendance. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour on the front steps/lawn and a seated dinner on the deck, followed by a reception in the house with dancing in the parlor. It was perfectly comfortable at that number, but I'm not sure I would advise having too many more for a seated dinner on the deck (though I suspect they may be able to accommodate more if you are doing dinner on their wedding lawn, as that space was fairly large).
