Getting married at Fontainebleau was like a dream. Fontainebleau was definitely a breath of fresh air amidst the sea of winery venues in the area that just seemed too impersonal and run of the mill. The drive to the venue was the beginning of our adventure. We took in the countryside feel as we drove there and got super excited for what we were about to discover at Fontainebleau. We truly found a gem in the home of Phyliss. You can tell that she put her heart and soul into creating an amazing space where love and family are celebrated. We could not get over how charming the chapel was and instantly knew that that was where we wanted to get married. When we saw the pictures online, we thought they were just edited well, but the venue exceeded our expectations! Phyliss was, in herself, a wonderful host and we are so glad that she married us that day. She will forever be a part of our love story and for that we are truly grateful. In preparation for our wedding, Phyliss was more than accommodating with our requests and answered all our questions which put our minds at ease. The day of the wedding, Phyliss and Mark were the most generous and accommodating hosts that we were able to relax and enjoy spending time with our family. We can't thank them enough for everything they have done for us on our wedding day. We can't wait to renew our vows, because we would definitely go back to Fontainebleau!Sent on 07/13/2017

Completely one of a kind!
My (now) husband and I were researching lots of different venues online and chose to visit this one first because of the amazing photos. There was no way after seeing this incredible property that we were checking anything else out and put down a deposit right away. Phyliss and Mark have put their heart and soul into this four acre estate, designing every aspect themselves and placing every brick where they wanted it to go.Sent on 08/11/2019
My guests absolutely loved the venue and wouldn’t stop asking me how I found it. It’s completely one of a kind with so many different beautiful touches. Phyllis is just the sweetest and from the moment we met her we knew that we were in good hands. Their sincerity in every transaction was clear and it was very easy to get a hold of them should we have a question or concern.
Don’t hesitate in booking them right away, they’re well worth it and very kind. Several of our guests told us it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to! It was an absolute blast, and so convenient being able to have the ceremony and the reception at the same location! We got to get married under their 150 year old oak tree, have dinner in a beautiful refurbished greenhouse, and then dance the night away under the stars. Couldn’t ask for anything more...
Thank you Phyliss and Mark, we truly appreciate all of your help and dedication and will never forget the beautiful day that was our wedding.

We had looked and looked at so many venues and we both felt like giving up after a while. We came about this place not knowing much and scheduled for a tour. Driving up on the way we couldn't help but think what if it doesn't work out or what if this happens. Pulling up to the property and getting out of the car we both looked at each other and were both in awe of how beautiful the venue was. The what if's left our mind and from the second we saw the venue we knew this was going to be where we were going to get married. Meeting Phyliss it was like meeting a fairy god mother. She went over every detail of the venue and it just makes you more in awe of the venue. Receiving all the information and the package we have placed for our wedding is absolutely amazing and you cant beat the price. We are so thankful to have meet Phyliss at the time we did and to book the venue. We can not wait to have our fairytale wedding here.Sent on 03/20/2017
