Wedding we never knew we dreamed of
We were lucky enough to find La Joya Dulce on the Knot and were fortunate to grab their last available date in 2018. We planned our wedding in less than 6 months and the team at La Joya Dulce was incredibly flexible, helpful and instrumental in creating our perfect wedding. We didn't have a lot of specific ideas in mind in the beginning, but we were able to work with Mandy and Kathy to make our wedding exactly what we wanted. They were very helpful with coordinating with vendors and making sure every detail was perfect. We found our caterer and photographer through their recommendations and both were excellent! We were lucky to have great weather for the ceremony, outdoor cocktail hour and have the dance floor under the stars. It really was a dream! We were even able to include our dog in our ceremony and reception! The venue is so beautiful and it was so much fun to see our guests reaction to the site. One said "you guys are getting married in heaven" and it really was! The day flew by and the timing was flawless thanks to all of the help from La Joya Dulce making sure that we took the time to create flexible timelines and think of each detail in advance. Our wedding day was truly unforgettable and we could not have done it without Mandy, Kathy and Wayne and the beautiful La Joya Dulce.

Stunning ranch with views and excellent customer service!
Kathie and Wayne and their team were spectacular to work with. They went above and beyond to help us create a warm, elegant, and professional-grade event. They have a stunning property from a classic barn welcome and a large indoor arena, to an outdoor setting with brilliant views of the surrounding mountains and valley. I look forward to working with them again in the future!Sent on 12/07/2018

Best Wedding Venue!!
Kathie, Mandy and everyone at La Joya Dulce gave us the best experience I could imagine. I always heard from other brides that there will be things that go wrong on your wedding day, but you just have to go with it. On our wedding day, everything was absolutely perfect. I met with Mandy and Kathie about 3 weeks ahead of time to go through everything in person (after many communications via text and email). On the day of the wedding, I was busy getting ready so I was so incredibly surprised that EVERYTHING was how I envisioned it. From where to place things, wording on signs, decor, it was all perfect. It shocked me that they could take my vision and completely transform it into reality. They really were the BEST and I can't recommend them enough! Plus, my husband got to ride into our ceremony on a horse, so he will never forget the experience! After the wedding, we both couldn't stop talking about how great Kathie and Mandy were and how they really made the day perfect. Since our wedding, we have had so many friends come up to us to tell us the wedding was one of the best they've ever been to based on the views, the space, and the flow of the evening. So, in short, if you're on the fence, don't question it- they will make everything you plan come to life! Thank you Kathie and Mandy!!!Sent on 12/04/2018
