    So worth it!

    2020 has not been an easy year for the wedding industry, for couples, venues, and vendors alike. Our original wedding was planned for 8.29.20. However, closer to this point, weddings were not allowed. Pala Mesa was friendly and flexible in helping us postpone to 10.10.2020.

    We got the pleasure of working with Luciana at Pala Mesa throughout the whole process. Luciana was very communicative, helpful, and creative with solutions to the new unchartered territory of wedding planning circumstances. Because this was all new planning territory, there were a few bumps in the road as expected while we both tried to figure things out on how to accommodate for COVID restrictions and city orders. Both us as the clients and Luciana with the venue had to make certain concessions and compromises to make it work fairly, but with Luciana we were able to do so amicably and professionally, and in a way were both parties were happy. And I’d also like to add that I’m not exactly an easy client to work with as I do have many questions, more than most, and Luciana was quite patient with me throughout the whole process and answered every single one of my 1,000 questions.

    Now, onto the result: The wedding was ABSOLTUTELY PERFECT!

    On the Big Day, both Luciana and another Pala Mesa representative named Tania were on-site , dressed to impress, making sure everything was up to par and good to go. They took care of all details that may have been overlooked by myself and the coordinator, and even pulled a few more stops and upgrades for us on the day of, details that made our wedding even more beautiful! The Ceremony at Garden Pavilion was dreamy with our harpist and floral decorations. While the original reception was supposed to be up at the beautiful Cliff Terrace, we had to instead change it to a dinner reservation down at the Aqua Terra Patio, the hotel’s restaurant, due to receptions currently not being allowed per the latest health order. This is where Luciana’s resourcefulness and creativity and Tania’s attention to detail really shined. The team dressed up the patio super nice with linens and centerpieces and charger plates, set out all the wedding favors and guest place cards on the tables, arranged the guestbook and gift table in a perfect spot by the patio entrance, arranged a cake table in a perfect spot by the pond, and even placed their recommended live musician in a perfect spot by the firepit for everyone to enjoy from a safe distance. The food exceeded our expectations, many guests commented on how good the food was. The live music was absolutely delightful, we also got many compliments from guests on that. And the service was great too, very attentive servers. One server even bought the groom a drink! How sweet! Honestly, even though we were not able to host a reception with a DJ and dancing as originally planned up at the Cliff Terrace Tent, the dinner at Aqua Terra was so classy, beautiful and relaxing, that we don’t feel any other alternative could have competed. Both the Ceremony and the Dinner were so perfect and beautiful, we are so very Happy. We would choose Pala Mesa over and over again in a heartbeat. Do yourself a favor and call Luciana and GO SEE THIS VENUE! It is gorgeous! Waterfalls and twinkle lights and ponds…. You name it. Gorgeous! On top of that, affordable! You just can’t beat Pala Mesa. You will NOT regret having your wedding here 😊. Thank you Luciana and Tania!!!

    Dream Venue

    What a beautiful and amazing location. The team is amazing and I can’t wait to get married here. Only downfall is having to hire your own coordinator, but luckily Sara worked there and knows her stuff.

    My husband and I had our wedding hosted at Pala Mesa Resort December 21,2019! When we were looking for a venue, we wanted something romantic, elegant and lots of nature and open environment. We got engaged January 26th and started visiting venues right away. We visited 6 venues before coming across Pala Mesa Resort. We had looked online and realize that it was out of budget but we had a “self guided tour” and we fell in love. So I contacted the wedding department and scheduled a tour. To our surprise they were having a “wedding special” which fit our budget perfectly. Since the moment we walked in, we were greeted by Luciana (wedding director). She was so kind, patient and super helpful. She gave us a tour and within a week or two we contacted her to sign the contract. She made everything so easy and comfortable for us. The staff were phenomenal! Sydney Molé was our main contact however Luciana was always available if Sydney was not able to answer our questions. I bothered both of them many times but they were always kind, polite and patient. They really worked with my budget and helped me figure out ways where I could save money. The day off the wedding Sydney was there and she was so helpful, we didn’t have much help from relatives and she made sure she helped me as much as she could. Also, Tania (bride assistant?) she was so caring and thoughtful and made sure I was taken care of. I am so blessed that we came across this beautiful venue and fantastic staff. I would definitely recommend this venue, it was a dream come true!!! Thank you all!
