    Excellent Venue and Wedding Planning

    Candy Berkley has been very patient with us while planning our wedding. My finance and I had originally looked for places that were reasonable and matched our budget. We found La Escondida through recommendations from FaceBook, so we decided to check it out. Candy listened to my vision, and was very understanding of what our budget was. We discussed options for a certain amount of guests, only to find out later that we needed to increase the guest amount. She was very understanding, considering we were planning our wedding in less than eight months. Only to then be thrown another curve ball in March. She again was very understanding and empathetic to the fact that I possibly was going to have to pause wedding planning for a few months, due to uncertainties of work and so forth. In May we decided to kick off planning again. I had asked about increasing guests once again, my wedding was scheduled for August. She kept me up to date with precautions the venue was taking to ensure our safety, in which I was able to pass the information along to the guests that would be attending. Unfortunately, the number of cases continued to increase. Just right before the month mark before my wedding, I decided to postpone. I was able to meet with her via Zoom the next day after my decision, and discussed possible new dates that were available.
    I love this place! She has vendors that work very closely with her to ensure that everything runs smoothly. For example, since I had to postpone, instead of contacting the caterer, it was a vendor of hers and she was able to reschedule that for me.

    Wow, wow and wow!

    I was the planner for a wedding there in November. The entire staff was friendly, accommodating and just an all around pleasure to work with. It’s rare you find this kind of service in a venue from the owner and the entire staff! The communication from the venue was always prompt and helpful. The venue and grounds were spotless the day of the wedding. The decor that was provided by the venue was on point and my bride was blown away! I definitely recommend La Escondida for your wedding or any event. I would gladly work there again in a heartbeat!
