We just had our wedding on 9/29/18 and WOW I cannot express how happy I am that we chose Leo Carrillo Ranch / Personal Touch Dining for our wedding. It was truly the best day of our lives and I feel like a HUGE part of that is thanks to LCR and the staff that they have. Leah was our coordinator throughout the whole planning process and Nikka was our day of coordinator. Leah was very communicative throughout planning, always nice, and very accommodating. I could not have asked for anyone better than Leah, she is so professional and great at what she does! Every question we had she had an answer. Nikka was perfect day of. She made us all feel calm and somehow was able to rally up our huge wedding party whenever needed. She did little touches throughout the day that made huge impacts on us, like handing us our chosen drinks of choice right after we walked down the aisle as Mr. & Mrs., got our order and brought us our food, and continuously would ask us throughout the night if we still wanted to do x, y, or z (ex. discrete cake cutting, etc). We actually changed our minds with quite a few things as the night went on so it was great. The staff as whole was amazing!!! Leah instructed us that if we have our own décor for the wedding that we should leave notes on each item for the staff to put out day of. They did such a great job, for a lot of it I asked them to use their judgement of where to put things and it was absolutely beautiful. The venue is gorgeous and somehow the day of a wedding looks 1000x better than when you come on a regular day. The vendors they recommend are all great, especially DJ Nick Weiss, the photo bus, and Adore Folklore Rentals! We really could not have dreamed of a better wedding, it went so smoothly and if there were any kinks we had nooo idea. So thank you SO much again to everyone at LCR / Personal Touch Dining!!!!

I recently got married at Leo Carrillo and I can honestly say it was a dream come true. If I could give more stars than five I would. The atmosphere, the scenery, the food, the cleanliness, the staff, the ease of parking, the list goes on about how amazing this place is and considering the price, I feel like I got an incredible deal. I want to give a huge thanks to Leah and Nikka for their hard work, professionalism, guidance, and support on my wedding day... and all the months leading up to that day. Leah was so attentive and always made sure to answer my questions and emails very promptly. She put my mind at ease when planning my wedding and overall I was a relaxed bride throughout the process because of her. I am beyond grateful that we found Leo Carrillo and chose it as our wedding venue. It was the perfect spot to make such a wonderful memory. So just another thanks to Leah, Nikka, and the rest of the staff for making my special day so perfect. You guys are truly great at what you do!!!! :)

Wow, we had the best day of our lives! What a beautiful, happy, relaxing wedding! The employees at Leo Carrillo / Personal Touch are fantastic. Leah & Nikka are both terrific at their jobs, and I don’t know what we would have done without them. Leah’s hard work, efficiency, attention to detail, and responsiveness was so appreciated during the planning, and Nikka’s positive, chill, upbeat, helpful vibe on the wedding day was so soothing and wonderful. They all did such a wonderful job to make the day run so smoothly. Everything tasted amazing, everything looked great, everyone was very helpful and nice. We were so grateful with everything Leo Carrillo / Personal Touch does as a part of the package – they handled the tables, the chairs, the dinnerware, the set up, the pack up, they set out our décor, the list goes on and on. It gave us such peace of mind knowing that they were handling so much behind the scenes. It was a truly magical evening. The most gorgeous venue and the happiest day. I highly recommend this place!
