The Martinelli Center was the perfect place to get married! The location for the ceremony is absolutely stunning with the arbor looking on to the vineyards. The weather was amazing making the location even better. The outdoor courtyard was great too and a fun place for guests to gather and meet each other. Lindsay was so great to work with and really helped make our night run smoothly. The food and drinks were great as well. Overall, our wedding was a complete success and I would like to thank Garre Winery for helping that happen.

Garre Winery was the perfect venue for our wedding! After looking at multiple places, we knew right away that this was the one. Everything about this venue is convenient and pleasant. The location is easy to find, has ample parking and feels relaxing & peaceful with the surrounding hills.
Our ceremony was on the lawn at Bella Rosa, and the vineyards and fall leaves made for a wonderful backdrop in our photos. The Bella Rosa reception room is so beautiful and spacious, with a huge bar and plenty of space between all of the tables, buffet dinner setup and photo booth. We also opened it up for cocktail hour and utilized the back patio area for guests.
The separate bride and groom suites were perfect for getting ready beforehand and storing our belongings for the day. The staff had laid out sandwiches, water and champagne in both rooms so we could relax and eat lunch before the photos and ceremony. The food & wine options for cocktail hour and dinner were excellent, and the staff was always friendly and helpful.
Working with Lindsay made the whole planning process easier and comfortable, and she was so helpful as the coordinator the day of. They scheduled a tasting for our family a few months before, and were very accommodating with answering all of our questions and concerns. Garre’s preferred vendors worked well with the staff, and the planning & delivery of everything seemed flawless. Lindsay kept everything on track and helped to keep the mood calm. We received a lot of compliments from our guests regarding the food & drinks, the comfortable ambiance and how smoothly the day went. We can’t thank Lindsay and the Garre staff enough for making our wedding day wonderful!!

The perfect venue!
I just had my wedding here and it was phenomenal! As a wedding planner myself, I was very picky about choosing a wedding venue. I wanted somewhere that included a day-of wedding coordinator, had a pretty ceremony site, had a large and updated reception space, and was flexible. Garre was the perfect place for us, and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to host a wedding or special event.
I loved the bridal suite & groom's room at Garre. The guys had their own private room near the front of the property. Not every venue has a dedicated space for the guys, so it was so nice that they had their own area to relax before the wedding. The Bridal Suite was wonderful. It is huge with lots of large mirrors, dress hooks, and a private bathroom. It is attached to the reception room so we were able to keep our things in there throughout the wedding and could use that restroom during the night.
The ceremony space is very nice with lots of trees and vineyards around it. Although I was a little worried about street noise, there were no issues on our wedding day. Garre also included a water station for our guests before the wedding.
The reception space is my favorite part of the venue. Lots of other venues that we visited had very outdated and old reception rooms. Garre's building is relatively new and they put a lot of thought into the design. We also wanted somewhere that had plenty of space, I didn't want our guests to feel cramped! They included mahogany chiavari chairs which was very nice - one less thing to rent! The back patio is beautiful, and was such a pretty space for guests to hang out during cocktail hour and later in the night. We put some patio furniture, cocktail tables, and a photo booth back there.
Food & Drinks
Garre includes a food tasting before the wedding. We were able to bring 2 guests to try the food. They also have a cafe on-site, and while it's not quite the same food, you can still get an idea of the quality and style. When we were unsure about the sauce on our steak, our coordinator Lindsay invited us to come to the cafe and try some of the sauce options. This was so helpful and made us both feel better about the food! The food was great on our wedding day, and we have gotten a lot of compliments on the meal.
Their bar area is huge and beautiful. They have lots of nice drink packages and brand options. Lindsay also helped us bring in a keg from our favorite brewery who they have worked with before. My husband loved that!!
We worked with Lindsay and she was AMAZING!! We met with her twice before the wedding, and had many emails. She was always very prompt in answering all of my questions and offered great suggestions on how to make things work at Garre. At the rehearsal she did a great job organizing our bridal party and family, and making sure everyone knew what to do. Day-of she kept us right on schedule. We also had some rentals coming in like linens and she made sure that everything was set up when we arrived. It was so cool getting to see the reception room before guests came in.
The serving staff and bartenders were also great. After the ceremony the servers greeted us and guests with trays of champagne which was so nice. Our server during the wedding was very nice, and everyone made sure that us and our guests were well taken care of.
Linday & Garre - Thank you so much for making our wedding day so perfect! We had the best time and wish we could do it all over again! My husband and I will definitely be back for wine tasting and to visit the cafe.
