The Incredible Hartley Botanica
Every single staff member was warm, helpful, and easy to work with. The on-site coordinator Karen was particularly helpful and communicative. We weren't nervous about anything leading up to the day because it was clear we were in good hands. Karen and the rest of the staff at Hartley made it very easy for us to prepare and plan, and they orchestrated the day smoothly--it's clear they have a ton of experience and they know how to organize a wedding.
We also received tons of compliments about Hartley from our guests, who gushed about the beautiful space, the delicious food, etc.
We are so grateful to everyone at Hartley Botanica who helped to make our wedding day unforgettable. We wouldn't change a thing!
The most dreamy wedding venue!
Hartley Botanica is a MAGICAL place to get married!
One of my favorite things about Hartley Botanica is how expansive the venue is. Each aspect of your special day happens in a different area of the grounds, giving you and your guests the feeling of being transported to separate, enchanting places for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. The grounds are absolutely stunning and very well taken care of. The lush greenery, gorgeous flowers and chirping birds made you feel like you're in a tropical, botanical garden far outside of Somis, CA.
Hartley is also a great option because of it's included planning and flexibility with vendors. PROS: you don't have to decide on a caterer because it's decided for you (Command Performance - their food is amazing). You have an onsite bridal suite and groomsmen quarters to get ready in if you choose. You're able to bring in your own alcohol (HUGE cost savings) as well as your own vendors for entertainment, decor, etc. Parking, valet, cake cutting and many other costly line items are included in their fee, making it feel more like one-stop shopping as opposed to getting nickel & dimed.
Barbarba, Hartley's owner, is extremely responsive and accommodating - she truly enjoys having couples get married and create lifelong memories on her property.
We are very impressed and beyond happy about how our wedding turned out - we couldn't have asked for a better venue!
