Heaven On Earth
Is there a heaven on earth? YES!Sent on 08/02/2019
My husband and I had heard of MHE through a mutual friend and wow, just wow! We were so in love that we cancelled all other venue tours and booked right away after our first visit. As a couple from Northern California, we dreamed of finding a venue that honored and accentuated the beauty of California and MHE nails it. The grounds are immaculate, the gardens are exquisite, the trees (and especially the Oak Trees up the hill where we had our ceremony) are to die for. Both we and our guests could not get over how truly stunning this venue is and it is the perfect size with lots of options on how to use space. We had a wedding of 150. We had our ceremony under the Oak Tree, had cocktails in the barn, did dinner on the lawn, and dancing/photobooth/lawn games/dessert on the patio. It was the perfect use of space and made each area feel new and special. Highly recommend and felt like a really nice use of space while still feeling intimate.
Looking for a venue that replies ASAP? MHE. Looking for a place that is constantly in communication leading up to your wedding? MHE. Looking for a place that allows to go past midnight? MHE. Looking for a place that allows you to book any vendor to truly make your day your own? MHE.
Not only is this place just heaven, but John and Lane are some of the sweetest people you will ever meet. They were incredibly open with everything that the venue includes and we loved that we had the ability to hire whichever vendor we liked (most of ours were from their vendor list and man oh man do they have true gems on there and we ended up hiring local businesses too!).
To show just how amazing John and Lane are I want to tell a little story. After our wedding I realized I had lost a family heirloom that was on my bouquet. The next day I called Lane in a panic and we were ready to scour the property looking for it. After I retraced my steps, my husband and I realized I had left my bouquet in the garden. Lane being the angel she is went up and checked for us on the drive up and found it! She is a legend!!
On our wedding day, we felt truly at ease and just overjoyed to be there. Our guests could not stop talking about how gorgeous everything was and I even heard some people say it was the most effortlessly, relaxed and beautiful wedding they have ever been to. Score!
Lane and John, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything. We wish you the best of luck in everything and thank you for making our wedding dreams come true!
Mountain House Estate's reply:Thank you Amy! As you've experienced, our goal is to help you have the best day ever. The vendors on our Nice list, have earned their way there by giving great service and being wonderful to work with. Those on our Naughty list .... have also earned their way there... I really appreciated that some of you guests took time out to find me, and thank me for the wonderful venue and wedding experience. What they need to know is that we only provide the backdrop, you and Jon provided the LOVE! Best always, John and Lane

We were in the early stages of planning and weren't sure where to start. Lane did our tour and made us imagine our vision and it went seamlessly from there. This was the first place we looked at and didn't want to go anywhere else, we fell in love with this place. Our family has seen pictures and can't wait to see it on our wedding day. We are getting married Nov. 13, 2020. This place is perfect for our party of about 120 people and all the people Lane referred me to have been amazing to talk to and work with as well.Sent on 02/24/2019

I do not even know where to start. Mountain house estate was the most magical, beautiful, classy, fairytale-esque venue, and we feel so lucky to have gotten to share it with our family and friends. Lane and John are the owners and they are the warmest, kindest people. They help you all along the way with suggestions and support. I feel like words really fall flat in expressing how much we loved this special place. We had our ceremony by the oak tree which was really close to my heart because it reminded me of the street I grew up on. Then cocktail hour inside near the bar, dinner on the lawn in front of the pond, and dancing on the gorgeous back patio. The whole evening was perfect. 10/10 would recommend this venue.Sent on 08/17/2019
