A truly magical venue with an amazing team of professionals!
The booking process was very smooth for us and shortly after, we were paired with our SEM, Danielle to discuss the timeline and details for our minimony. Danielle is such a sweet person and was integral in bringing our vision to life. She kept us on track during the planning process and she was such a calming presence for me on the day-of as my nerves were through the roof! Our ceremony and cocktail hour went off without a hitch, and I know Danielle did so much behind the scenes to make sure everything went smoothly.
I had so many of our guests compliment us on how beautiful the venue was and how kind all of the Nestldown staff were. We couldn't have picked a better place to get married and we are so grateful to Danielle and the rest of the team at Nestldown for all the work they put into making our day so special!
A Truly Magical Day!
Our contract signing appointment was so memorable. We met with Barbara and Mark. The morning was filled with getting to know each other and making sure they understood what we envision for our special day. My husband and I felt so comfortable and excited.
Nestldown makes the planning process seamless! They provide you an extensive list of preferred vendors that they have worked with for many years. However, if you want to use a different vendor, you sure can! Just need to complete some paperwork and get the vendor approved. We went with all preferred vendors for our special day! Also, you are assigned a Special Events Manager (SEM) who will meet with you many times before your big day to sort out all the logistics. This is included... they contact all your vendors the month before to make sure everything is ready to go, they send them your timeline, they are the day of contact so you, the Bride and Groom, have nothing to worry about day of! Jo Ann was our angel of an SEM. She was attentive to our needs, she offered expert advice, and she showed that she truly cared about us as people, not just a client. Our day would not have been as perfect as it was without Jo Ann. Thank you, Jo Ann!!
Then COVID entered our planning process. Nestldown clearly communicated our options for moving our date as July 2020 was going to be affected. Yes, this was frustrating BUT this was completely out of Nestldowns control and our control. Nestldown was responsive to our situation and we made a plan everyone was comfortable with. We moved our date to July 2022.
After a long wait, we finally had our wedding! On the day of our wedding, we rented the Nestldown Guest House where I (bride) and my bridesmaids spent the night before and got ready the next morning. The home is gorgeous and the location made getting ready so easy and convenient. I was golf carted to meet my husband for our first look. It was so seamless!
Our day was magical! We had 140 guests and they were blown away with the beauty of Nestldown. There is something for everyone; sand castles, dragons, cottage, tree house, horses, fire pit for s'mores, koi pond, an active train, beautiful barn with an exquisite chandelier, etc. You feel as if you walked into a fairyland when you are Nestldown and can't believe you are still in the Bay Area.
We are beyond grateful to have had our wedding at Nestldown! My husband and I can't stop talking about our day. Our guest have told us many times "that was the best wedding I have ever been to!" It was a day we waited over two years for and completely worth the wait!
The Best Wedding Venue!
From our first steps on the property during our tour at Nestldown, we knew that this venue was like no other. After seeing multiple wedding venues, we couldn't go back to any of them once we saw what Nestldown had to offer. From the professional and organized staff to the gorgeous and well maintained gardens, choosing Nestldown was a no-brainer.
Our SEC, Jo Ann, was an absolute delight to work with. She helped us with our wedding timeline, all the details about our vendor, what to prepare for leading up to our wedding, and answered all our questions. I'm not sure how she had time to organize and remember every detail about our wedding while helping others as well.
Our wedding itself was better than we could've imagined. Nestldown truly knows how to pamper and spoil the bride and groom. As soon as we entered, we were constantly being looked our for. We were handed appetizers when we were hungry, our cocktails when we took breaks, and everything was organized down to a T. We also had the luxury to work with the owner of Nestldown, Barbara. She was the perfect blend of sweet and professional. She somehow knew where every vendor was and what they were doing at all times!
My wife and I are still talking about how magical our wedding was. Our guests also can't stop bragging that they went to the best wedding ever. We wish we would experience this day again!

Beautifully maintained venue with a magical secret garden feel. It's always a pleasure working with their organized professionals.
One of the most stunning venues in all of Northern California. One of the first word of wedding guests' mouths is WOW! It seriously is a resounding WOW! The entire crew at Nestldown is dedicated to creating a very personal experience. While they do many events, I can tell you that each one has it's own feel. Pretty darn special. If you're looking for something that's just out of this world - Check out Nestldown!
An amazing place to have a wedding, with an amazing staff that is very friendly and works fantastically well with outside wedding vendors that come to the property. Because the venue has unique facilities requirements that vendors must be comfortable with, Nestldown's carefully curated list of recommended vendors assures clients a high degree of success that all aspects of their day will go smoothly. Our staff enjoys working there especially because of the high quality of fellow wedding vendors.
