3 weeks ago I had my absolute dream wedding at Olympia's Valley Estate. I'm still speechless and pinching myself that I was lucky enough to get married at the most beautiful venue I could ever imagine in beautiful wine country. From the very first time I stepped foot on OVE for a site visit 10 months ago, I knew we had to get married there and that was it. It leaves you speechless from the very first time you see it. From the rustic feel, to the beautiful weeping willows for the ceremony, to the most stunning barn you could imagine, this venue is truly one of kind. We toured wineries as well and every other venue we saw paled in comparison. It is so remote and you have the entire property to yourself. Olympia's Valley Estate was the best decision we could have ever made! I will dream of this day every single day for the rest of my life. Worth every single penny, hands down. With OVE you get the complete package - from getting ready in the beautiful Victorian and Groomsmen Cottage, working with the best in the business, to being able to create your dream space with all OVE has to offer - from furniture rentals, etc. We had the pleasure of working with Lydia throughout our 9 months of wedding planning, and she is amazing! We cannot thank her enough. We must have exchanged hundreds of emails with her and she was so responsive, helpful, and the OVE family truly wants you to have the best experience possible and will go out of their way ensure. From one bride to the next future bride, you will not regret a single thing booking OVE. It is more than we ever could have imagined and there are no words that could capture how beautiful and special it is. Wish we could relive this day.Sent on 10/15/2019

OVE is an AMAZING wedding venue!
Couldn't recommend OVE more for a wedding venue! My husband and I chose OVE for our June 2019 wedding, and are so grateful we made that decision.Sent on 08/14/2019
Lydia and the entire family are incredibly quick to respond (like within minutes), which eased so much stress from our wedding planning process. They were always so friendly and never annoyed by all the questions we asked. They're total pros.
We looked at so many other venues and felt that OVE perfectly captured the feeling of Sonoma County beauty, which was important to me as I grew up nearby and wanted a venue that felt remote but still close to lodging, had beautiful rolling hills, a gorgeous ceremony location (willows weren't something on my list but they were STUNNING and provided the best textured background and greenery for our photos), had different spots for each portion of the wedding that would be far enough from each other so as not to feel cramped, but were just a minute or so walk to each area and with a natural flow.
We learned in our search process that there are so many things a venue needs to have for a wedding that many do not, like plugs for a dj, a parking lot, lighting, etc. OVE has it all, and it was such a relief to not have to spend our time integrating these details into our day. The venue also provides and sets up chairs for the ceremony, and chairs and tables for dinner, and included updated restrooms, which was something we determined many Bay Area venues did not have (and we did not want to bring in portable toilets!).
The wedding day went off seamlessly, and our guests were all in awe of the natural, beautiful vibe of the wedding site. Plus, the cows (behind a fence, and not smelly at all) were a hilarious addition that everyone loved and took pictures with.
We do recommend paying extra to extend the party by an hour - it was the perfect length!
Just so so grateful that we chose OVE for our wedding venue!

Naturally gorgeous, one-of-a-kind venue
Olympia's has always been our dream venue but we were worried about it being out of our budget since wedding vendor websites rated it as expensive. We procrastinated on wedding planning until we finally sent out a harmless inquiry and realized the pricing was reasonable so we booked a venue tour. We were blown away and it looked better in person than in pictures. We had the tour in October and by then, most of the following year weekends were already booked so we would have our first choice option 2 years out. We chose June 1st since it would be after the spring showers and before the summer heat rolled in. Day turned out perfect, as the week before had unusual rain and the week after had an unusual heat wave so we were surprisingly lucky.Sent on 10/01/2019
We're so grateful we got to celebrate our love at OVE. It offered the perfect combination of an outdoors ceremony with the indoors reception in the cozy barn. They were able to accommodate our headcount of 160 guests and a live band, AMFM from Downbeat LA, with enough room for a large dance floor and almost every table still had a good view of the band.
Lydia and Lindsay were a pleasure to work with and are very professional and sweet. It's a true mom and pop business with the farm being in their family for generations, and they still give off the family friendly vibe. We liked that they prefer local vendors so we could give back to the community. Everything went smoothly and they were always ready to answer any questions we had. Try to choose a coordinator with experience working at OVE. We chose Lisa Bravo, and she knew the venue inside out so that definitely added to the ease while wedding planning.
Back to the venue. Yes, the willow tree pond and barn are absolutely gorgeous and picturesque, but there are so many other nicks and crevices that get overshadowed. We received our professional photos back from Jessica Christie Photography, and looking back at the details of the venue, we came to really appreciate how rich in personality everything is. We had so much fun taking pictures and exploring the whole venue - like with the victorian house, cottage, greenhouse, greenery and wildflowers, hammock, and even the new additions like the beer garden. The natural aesthetics really doesn't require that much extra decoration so that'll help save you money. You can tell everything has been well thought out and put together with class. It's a unique venue and many guests and friends have told us that it's the nicest wedding venue they've ever seen. It'll definitely leave your guests in awe by the beauty. Highly highly recommended and writing this review brought back all the feels and fun we had. Thank you so much for opening up your home and farm to allow us to celebrate there.
If you are looking for a venue that can showcase your style whether it be eclectic or refined, Olympia's Valley is a gold mine of vintage, rustic and majestic beauty all in one. Your guests will love the countryside with the old house and barn, the organic farm, and apple orchard. This venue and the people who run it will make you feel like family and make your occasion sparkle till the very end. It's top notch all around!
Beautiful location. People there are easy to work with, both indoor and outdoor location great for a rain contingent without any additional cost.
What an amazing venue! We were so honored to have been among the amazing wedding professionals to work at Olympia's Valley Estate in their first season and we cannot wait until 2014. From our perspective, Olympia's Valley Estate is a real gem- the Tresch's understand the industry and have set up their site to accommodate not only guests but the many wedding professionals that it takes to produce a wedding. I have yet to find a guest, client or professional who has not fallen in love with this venue!
