Winter Wedding at the Garden Court Hotel-AMAZING!
I absolutely LOVED my experience with the Garden Court Hotel. Jesse Bresnahan, who was our Event Manager, was AMAZING and perhaps a big reason why our wedding was so great. Planning a wedding, as most will figure out soon enough, is extremely stressful, but with Jesse's help, I couldn't be at more ease. He was super responsive, gave tons of details when needed, and had a "can do" attitude for everything. Of course I loved the actual setting, food, and general service at the Garden Court, but I don't think I would have had such a great time planning my wedding if it weren't for Jesse. As an added bonus to the Garden Court, they give you a 5 day stay at a sister hotel in one of their locations in Spain for your honeymoon (which you have a year to use)...unheard of! They also help set it all up for you, so just one less thing to stress about. My husband and I went to Barcelona and of course, it was a trip to remember. Thank you Jesse and Garden Court team for making our wedding what we wanted and more!Sent on 11/11/2019

An Amazing Wedding Reception Experience
Words can not describe how appreciative I am of Jesse! He was our point of contact throughout of wedding planning process when we selected to host our reception at the Garden Court. Jesse was great in providing us feedback on our plans and making spot on suggestions to make sure everything went off without a hitch.Sent on 11/05/2019
If you are planning a wedding reception, I highly recommend doing it here - not only is the food amazing (I was getting compliments all night), but the Terrace room on the 2nd floor is absolutely lovely - the beautiful dome windows and private balcony are just perfect for family and friends to take a breather and go outside to chat and get some air during the festivities.
There are also so many amazing perks with hosting a wedding here - among those complimentary stay in one of their lovely suites and also complimentary stay at one of the sister hotels in Spain for 5 nights. I was really touched when we entered our suite at the end of the night and saw rose petals trailing to the bedroom and decorating the bed in the shape of a heart. Everyone I interacted with from the Garden Court was so amazingly sweet and helpful and I received endless compliments on the venue and food.

I love shooting at the Garden Court Hotel in Palo Alto! The staff is highly professional and their clients are treated with the kind of care you'd expect from the best of hotels. Downtown Palo Alto is charming and has great little spots all over for making unique wedding photos. The courtyard at the hotel is stunning and looks amazing at night. You really have to check it out!
Garden Court Hotel is a charming gem in Palo Alto. The rooms are updated and tastefully modern, yet the courtyard has an Old World feel. At night the courtyard looks extra lovely with lamp posts and stringed lights. Wonderfully romantic spot for a wedding and the staff here takes excellent care of you!
GCH is my favorite venue to do business with; not only is the entire staff a dream to work with because of the team spirit & kindness, I just love the atmosphere. I feel like I'm in another world in Europe, especially w/ the amazing dishes they serve. I've been here as part of networking groups/ guest at weddings & parties & also as the floral designer working for clients weddings & parties. The whole gamut & I always leave with a very satisfied heart. Oh- I've also delivered flowers to the room of the brides & just love the room decor! What an awesome hotel in the heart of Palo Alto!!!
