Amazing Day-of Coordinator & Beautiful Space
We had our wedding at Leo Carrillo and Personal Touch Dining was an amazing vendor to work with. Down to earth and direct, they keep things simple. You get a day-of coordinator (Kendra was seriously AMAZING), and it is a reasonable price point and you get to make the venue into whatever you'd like with personal touches :) Thank you again!Sent on 08/09/2019

I got married at Leo Carrillo on 6/29 and am still living on newlywed cloud 9. I might be slightly biased but I think that we had the best wedding ever and the most beautiful wedding ever. Leo Carrillo had a lot to do with the later. The space is so absolutely stunning that it doesn't need much embellishment at all. I would also like to mention that the twinkly lights everywhere somehow make the place even more magical at night, which from all my visits prior I had never had a chance to see before and was such a great surprise.Sent on 07/15/2019
We booked the venue well in advance, somewhere between a 18 months and year. So I had the opportunity to work with a few people within the company in that time, as people moved around in positions within the company. I was slightly nervous when a couple months in advance of the wedding a new person took on the lead planning role. However, all my fears were for nothing, because Kendra is amazing! She kept the day running smoothly and never made me feel like I was on a clock. Even my family and friends commented on how wonderful she was as a person and at her job.
I also feel like our money went incredibly far with the venue and catering. The ambiance alone of the venue made our wedding look more expensive, by far, than it was.
If you also would like the most beautiful wedding in the world, book Leo Carrillo.

Our wedding was pure magic and it's all because of the service we received from the staff at Leo Carrillo. From planning to execution it was top notch. I was planning our wedding from out of state so I needed a little extra hand holding, when it came to certain things and they totally stepped up. Kendra & Lexi were on top of everything the day of and we didn't have to worry about anything. They went as far as saving appetizers for us to try since we were busy taking photos during cocktail hour. When it came to dinner they took our plates and filled them so that we could have a moment to ourselves. The ranch itself was absolutely beautiful and while we never expected our wedding to be magical it truly was.Sent on 05/06/2019
