    The attentive service and gorgeous setting at The Mountain Terrace made our day.
    The venue is beautiful - you're getting married on a grassy lawn surrounded by redwoods overlooking the south bay. The sunset views are spectacular. A deer came at dusk to graze at the edge of the lawn. The lights over the deck and fire pit made for a romantic setting once the sun set.

    I added on the day-of planning services and highly recommend it because I got to enjoy my wedding and not worry about where I needed to be or who was taking care of our guests. Caren made the day seamless, calm, and fun! She brought us a personal plate of appetizers and champagne during post-ceremony portraits. The bride's dressing room had water (with straws to preserve lipstick!) chairs and a big mirror. Our guests were very well taken care of. We got comments about how accommodating they were of dietary restrictions and how delicious dinner and appetizers were.

    Our wedding was on August 5, so it was sunny and warm on the lawn during the ceremony, but definitely cooler than in Palo Alto. We looked at weather forecasts for La Honda to prepare. It cooled off to a very comfortable temperature for dinner. We didn't need the heat lamps but were glad to have them because you never know how much it will cool off once the sun sets. There is air conditioning inside, which was great when we were dancing. Caren was very responsive and helpful giving recommendations on heat lamps and umbrellas as we approached our big day. She quickly answered every email in the days and months leading up to our wedding.

    Overall it was a spectacular experience and we highly recommend The Mountain Terrace and Caren!

    I just had my wedding at this venue on August 1st, 2015 and I would like to thank the entire crew of Mountain Terrace!

    Caren and Sarah were both very helpful in our planning process. Caren would respond to my emails at hours I wouldn't expect her to be working! She was definitely on top of the reminders, coordinating and helping us figuring everything out.

    Denise and her crew made our day effortless on the day of. Denise went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable, serviced and on schedule. I didn't eat much on my day of and asked one of my bridesmaids to ask if the kitchen had a bite to eat as well as coffee. I didn't realize the kitchen didn't have coffee ready yet. Without hesitation, Denise got me a coffee from the market next door. I didn't hear this story until a week after my wedding from my husband. I am truly thankful and touched by her devotion to excellent service and making the bride feel truly special!

    The weather was gorgeous at Mountain Terrace on our day of and all of our guests enjoyed the delicious food/drinks/awesome bartender/class A service.

    Mountain Terrace's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind review Carrie!

    It was a pleasure working with you throughout, and we are so glad you enjoyed your celebration with us!

    Best wishes always,
    ~Sarah & TMT Team

I love this venue! Gorgeous lawn, huge deck and awesome views. The sunset light is stunning! Late afternoon weddings at the Mountain Terrace are beautiful. Caren is fantastic to work with. She really looked after the vendors as well as the bride and groom. I can't wait to shoot there again! Thank you guys!!
