    Victoria & Rafael

    The wedding venue was perfect for our small intimate rustic themed wedding we had. Its perfect if you want to be close to nature and have the ceremony and reception in one location. The owner, Candy was very helpful and offered suggestions with the whole event planning. The venue is cost friendly and loved the DIY packages. The family and kids had a great time with taking pics in photo booth to kids running around in the grounds. Favorite moment is before the start of the ceremony. I was in the ladies changing room and my husband outside knocked on door and wanted his Pastor to pray for us. So we extended our hands through the door.

    Thank y’all

    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!
