Incredible Leal Experience
We were welcomed by Niamh who gave us a grand tour of the property. It was hard to pick which location we liked best, we loved them all. We decided on the barrel room, we loved the ambiance of the lights and the fact that we would be indoors for the reception. Fast forward to our wedding day in March, it decided to rain all morning and the team was so incredibly accommodating. We ended up moving our ceremony site from one location that was completely outdoors to one that was under a large tent. It was even better than the original! I was so happy they offered us the option to re-locate the morning of with no additional cost or hassle for us. The fact that they had alternative options was a huge blessing and saved our big day from the unpredictable weather.
The planning process for our wedding was extremely smooth thanks to the wonderfully organized and friendly staff. Melissa was our wedding coordinator and we couldn't be more thankful to have her guide us through the process. She was our go-to for everything and was an essential component to making sure everything went as planned on the day of. Savannah was our design team leader, and she made the process so fun from choosing florals to picking out table center pieces. I loved that planning my wedding didn't consume all of my free time because this venue allows you to be as hands-on or hands-off as you'd like. I knew I couldn't take on much due to my work schedule but they helped with literally everything. They gave me options and all I had to do was pick my favorite, it was that easy. I had full confidence that they would make anything look good and the end result was 100 times better than my expectations.
Overall, we loved having our wedding at Leal Vineyards and we wouldn't have changed a thing. The team was spectacular to work with and they made the entire process fun and exciting. We officially became wine club members so we can celebrate at our wedding venue several times a year or cheers with a bottle of Leal wine at home. This place will always hold a special place in our hearts!
Léal made our dream wedding come true!
Niamh was our tour guide and greeted us with champagne and made us feel so special and at ease. She helped us picked our date based on their availability and weather (we wanted our whole wedding outside) and from the moment we met her to our big day she continued to go over and beyond.
Léal takes care of everything for you besides hair & makeup, photography/videography, and dessert. They made it so stress free for us and exceeded our expectations.
Melissa was our wedding planner from Léal and she was always reachable and very thorough. My husband and I kept waiting for something to go wrong and we are still surprised to this day how easy everything was.
We had a lot of people with special diets and Léal catered to every allergy without any complaint and the food was so good.
They did a custom Ring for Champagne wall for us which is just a testament to their customer service and attention to detail.
We also rented their Estate Homes which I highly recommend since they are onsite. Our bridal party was able to get ready onsite and stay onsite which made the logistics for everything so smooth.
The people at Léal are amazing and made everything we wanted happen and more.
The best ever
