Candy & her team made the wedding planning easy, they are kind and thoughtful, I definitely recommend this venue. From beginning to end Candy helped this clueless bride be on track. She adjusted things for our budget as needed, recommend vendors and on the day of the wedding she coordinated and made sure we were on schedule. This venue is beautiful very green surrounded with so much nature. My wedding looked amazing and met my visual expectations, even though I did bring my own decorations, la Escondida did provide a few items for me & helped set up my sweetheart table bar decorations and little things that I did not have time for. The decorator and Candy made sure that my dress and veil were perfectly adjusted before my husband took his first look at me, Candy even fanned me in between pictures to make sure I wasn’t atrociously sweaty...They did such a great job, I truly felt that their goal and only purpose for that evening was to make my husband & I happy. Thank you so much La Escondida you guys are wonderful!Sent on 10/03/2019

La Escondida is The Place!
La Escondida Celebration Center! just like the name suggests, is truly HIDDEN! I can try to explain the awesomeness of this amazing and quaint sanctuary, but until you actually walk through the beautiful scenery yourself my words will not do the justice.Sent on 11/30/2018
This beautiful outdoor venue has it all!!! It was the perfect place for my husband’s 60th Disco Birthday Smash! Large pavilion accommodates over 100 guests and has floor for dancing, cantina for the bartender, lots of room for socializing, strolling and mingling, while kids can safely run around the beautiful open landscape. So many great places for pictures. All our guests commented on how unique and beautiful the facility was. Our whole experience was absolutely wonderful. You can do it all, from weddings to picnics. The owner, Ms. Candy, and her staff were so personal and accommodating, it felt like working with friends.
Last but not the least, La Escondida is eco-friendly! Ms. Candy is all about reducing our carbon footprint. She recycles everything!!! We absolutely loved everything about La Escondida Celebration Center and would definitely recommend it!!

Helpful, kind, and patient
The team at La Escondida was incredible. Without Candy and her team, my wedding would have been a hot mess. She worked with my work schedule to ensure we had face-to-face meetings to discuss each event and was patient with me as I tried to balance a new career AND wedding planning. Her florist/decorator ran with my ideas without question and made the most beautiful arbor for our ceremony. My favorite part about this venue is that I was able to bring in any vendors and I was not "locked in" to a specific caterer, florist, photographer, etc. That being said, the preferred vendors (especially the caterer), were beyond wonderful and easy to work with. I cannot praise this team enough, and neither could my guests. They loved the venue, the food, and the music. THANK YOU LA ESCONDIDA for giving me a beautiful wedding and a wonderful memory!!Sent on 06/25/2019
