Monte Verde is AMAZING!!
My husband and I just got married here last weekend and holy crap we are still glowing with how perfect the night went!! Monte Verde is an almost all inclusive venue that really takes all the stress away from the couple. We were engaged for a little over a year and we were constantly asked by family and friends "oh my god aren't you stressed out??.. (annoyed face)."I can honestly say as the bride I was not and I am an overplanning kind of person. The coordinator Lexi and her staff have everything down to the exact minute and down to every single detail. Many details are taken care of for you and all you and your partner simply need to do is choose your details and then show up(cake detail, cake flavors, linens, all food, all bar drinks, florist for centerpieces, servers etc. ALL DONE FOR YOU) It was so nice! The only vendors we had to hire on our own were photographer/photobooth, videographer and DJ (all of which Lexi provides recommendations.) And the food was really good which is definitely a plus.
We need to give a special shoutout to the wedding planner and day of coordinator Lexi. She is AMAZING. She is awesome at communicating and providing honest feedback and opinions of what she thinks couples actually need versus what they see on pinterest that would cause a lot more work. She is VERY detailed oriented and thinks of so many things before the couple even does. On the day of she does an amazing job running the night and is always in the right spot at the right time holding exactly what it is that you are looking for.
Monte Verde is definitely worth the money. It is nicely tucked away off of Foresthill road. You feel like you are out of town getting married in a magical forest covered in twinkle lights but in reality you are about 20 minutes out of town. I also loved that everything was at one location (ceremony, reception, getting ready, etc.) The house itself is beautiful and has a lot of vintage traditional details that are to die for. There is also an inside ballroom that can be used in case of rain or in colder seasons.
We felt like our wedding was a movie. Everything went perfect and everything was so beautiful! I wish we could re-live the night over and over again!!Sent on 09/14/2019

Fairy Tale Wedding
Our son was married here on 7/06/19. It was over the top AMAZING! Hard to know where to start. But Lexi, the coordinator, is the obvious choice! She's a great communicator, she's very organized, she's on top of every little thing and she has a LOT of experience doing what she does. She's also knowledgeable and entertaining about human nature and gives great direction throughout the event. Next, the venue itself is absolutely beautiful. It's romantic, intimate (1 event per day) , clean, convenient (10 min east of Auburn) right off a very modern expressway. The backdrops there are STUNNING for your pictures. The price is excellent for what you get (all inclusive with delicious food, tables, chairs, linens, place settings, flowers and cake!) The florist is top notch who provides the venue flowers, the cake from the designated bakery is delicious, the FOOD is very good! The atmosphere and layout of the venue is very fun and beautiful. You cannot go wrong having your wedding here!Sent on 08/03/2019

We've filmed weddings at the Monte Verde Inn for the last 15 years and can attest the the stunning beauty of the venue as well as the fabulous staff that we have grown to know and appreciate over these many years. I also appreciate that Monte Verde is ONE STOP for your wedding and guests: Plenty of room upstairs for dressing, a gorgeous ceremony site with a huge redwood canopy, a vintage red barn and vineyard in back for photo sessions, and an open lawn and spacious patio area for your perfect reception. What more could you ask for in a wedding venue?
