    The BEST wedding venue!

    My husband and I got married at Portola Inn in June and it was hands-down the best decision we made. Portola Inn is a beautiful venue but above all, the staff is off-the-charts INCREDIBLE. They made us feel so prepared and excited for our wedding day. They offer coordination the day-of but that doesn’t full encompass all that they do for you…they truly go above and beyond for their couples. Peggy, Tom, and Jana are so genuine and they really care about your experience. If you’re thinking about having your wedding at Portola Inn, DO IT! You will not regret it. We are definitely coming back for our anniversaries and hopefully a vow renewal someday!! What an incredible place with the MOST incredible people. I cannot say enough good things about my experience…and don’t just take it from me- Every single one of my guests LOVED their time at Portola Inn and have been asking non-stop how I found this gem of a venue. My wedding day was the best day of my life and Portola Inn made it all possible!

    Portola Inn's reply:

    Thank you Paulina and Conner,
    It is so good to hear that your day was perfect! We would have to agree that the day was amazing. We hope to see you back to celebrate an anniversary.
    Best to both of you,
    Peggy and Tom

Portola Inn is always a pleasure to visit. Tom & Peggy and their entire family of staff are welcoming to all guests. We have had several opportunities to visit this venue on small and large occasions and every time we smile and walk away remembering a great experience. We love how they recognize the vendors onsite with their own plaques and take huge pride in working with every one of them. Even more fun is how we at The Groves on 41 are often inspired by something the O'Malley's have done and fun to see we can sometimes even inspire them. Thank you for your community outreach and involvement, we love being companions in this wonderful industry and environment.

Portola Inn is a lovely venue with so many location options - the oak tree ceremony location is stunning! The owners are a pleasure to work with and take pride in creating a stress-free day for their couples. Plus it's close to town so you don't have to worry about guests navigating the narrow winery roads late at night.
