I cannot say enough nice things about the venue and the staff! Owie, Kendra, and Giselle, Chef Kim, Chef Mark, and all their staff were so wonderful to work with! We chose the lavanda ceremony and cocktail hour location and the barrel room for our reception. We also rented the two estate homes on the property. It was amazing! They do everything and they are so organized. The day of the wedding I was so relaxed because I knew that they were handling everything. We had a Persian-American wedding and they were flexible with us bringing in a few extra vendors for some of the Persian traditions. Everything went as planned on the day of and all my guests keep commenting about what an amazing venue it was and how professional and friendly the staff were. If I were to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing. It was amazing! Oh and we had about 180 guests and the prices they quoted us were completely accurate - actually we got a refund for our bar tab :)Sent on 05/10/2015

Nothing short of amazing!
We were married this weekend at Leal and I could not have been happier with the service. We also rented the three homes on the property. The homes were so convenient for everyone to get ready together and to hold the rehearsal dinner, and they're absolutely beautiful. Megan was my wedding coordinator and quickly responded to every last one of my emails. Megan and the rest of the Leal team bent over backwards to ensure we had the wedding of our dreams...and we did. If I had the chance, I would still choose them all over again.Sent on 02/21/2019

Such a GORGEOUS and amazing wedding venue!!!! Leal Vineyards is a breathtaking spot for your wedding. My husband and I highly recommend renting the Estate Homes; it was so convenient to be staying on the property with family and friends, especially for our rehearsal dinner! Not only that, but the Leal staff constantly makes sure everything is running smoothly from the time you arrive to the morning after your wedding. The venue and staff will make this the best day of your life! Also, because Leal is so pretty, you can save money on your own decor since the venue is already gorgeous enough! We had our ceremony at the Lavanda site, and reception in the Barrel Room, which is the perfect room to keep your guests cool during the warmer months! Also, the "LOVE" sign photos are taken at their new gorgeous ceremony site!! There are SO many gorgeous spots for photos (Lavender field, olive trees, Barrel Room, love sign, vineyard, etc!)Sent on 11/21/2017
