Elegant and Inviting Venue
My wife and I got married at the Kaleidoscope Inn and Gardens on June 1st, 2019. We couldn't have been happier with how the wedding turned out. It was a great day and the Kaleidoscope was magical. Not only was our wedding day practically perfect, but the entire weekend was great. We rented the whole house for the weekend so that the two of us and our bridal party could relax and hang out as much as possible before and after the wedding. Our wedding guests really enjoyed the venue too.Sent on 07/19/2019
The house and grounds/garden is incredible, but the price for the venue is also pretty darn awesome. So many other places on the Central Coast are very overpriced. Not only that, Beki, who is the property manager and wedding coordinator comes with the venue. She is a great person and we really enjoyed working with her. She was incredibly helpful from the moment we signed the contract to the day of our wedding. Honestly, because of her I think we were more prepared than we would have been otherwise. She also made our day flow nicely and virtually stress-free.
Lastly, the venue has so much green and pocket areas, that if you get a good photographer, he or she can capture some really good shots.
Thanks for everything, Beki!
