Affordable yet PERFECT
Patti was highly professional, as well as highly attentive to our needs and 1,000 questions. When you hire the venue for an event, the rental fee is relatively low; however, it all starts to add up once you start adding the catering costs because you have to use their services. In comparison to other wedding venues, this place is on the more affordable side. Don’t let that fool you, because all of their food is delicious. you have a food testing appointment where you can choose all of the plates that you would like to have at your event. The tomato soup and chicken with white creamy sauce was a big hit at our wedding! The venue includes all of the chairs, tables, linens, tableware, all you have to do is choose the color of the napkin.
The venue has a lot of natural beauty, especially that outdoor courtyard where most wedding ceremonies are held. It doesn’t need a lot of decoration, so you can save some money there. I would also recommend using MAE from their preferred vendor list as your mandatory day of coordination services. They have a well established relationship and MAE knows the venue inside out.
Needless to say, my wedding day was perfect and Plaza De Magdalena did a fantastic job from the waitering staff to quality of food. I wouldn’t want to have it anywhere else!
She is very kind and helpful all throughout the process. We communicated via e-mail and text along the way - always answering my questions. On the day of my wedding, Patti even ran inside the restaurant to grab me a napkin right before i walked the down the steps because i suddenly couldn’t stop crying. I’ll never forget that moment with her.
All of our family and friends loved the vibe of the courtyard and raved how delicious all the food were! All of the staff from the people who got the rooms ready, served the food to the bartender were all so very nice and definitely went above and and beyond.
My dream wedding came to life and i will forever be grateful for everyone who made it come to a reality!
So beautiful and first class service!
