Beautiful property and wonderful staff!
Sacred Mountain was the perfect place to have our wedding! We wanted a venue surrounded by nature with a mountain/forest vibe, which can be really difficult to find in southern California. Sacred Mountain was perfect! It's an absolutely beautiful property, gorgeous views, and really feels like you're in the mountains. We still get compliments from guests about how amazing the venue was!Sent on 10/27/2019
The staff is wonderful as well! They're very professional and accommodating, and were always available to answer questions. When the weather forecast for our May wedding predicted rain, they not only handled everything with activating the "rain plan", but checked in with me every day to make sure I was doing OK and reassure me everything would be fine. Luckily, day of, it didn't actually rain at all! We really appreciated the effort and flexibility of the staff when dealing with last-minute weather-related changes!
We stayed at the property for the weekend and the houses are clean, comfortable and very well-equipped! It really was the wedding of our dreams, thank you Sacred Mountain team!

This place is MAGICAL and we couldn't have been happier!
To start - I live in Los Angeles and my husband and I were looking for wedding venues in the LA area. I was looking for an intimate, outdoor venue with beautiful scenery and lots of greenery around. It was also super important to us that we were able to choose our own vendors. But we quickly found out that many venues that had the vibes we wanted included package deals that we had to go with and they were much pricier than our budget. As we started to expand our search outside the LA area, we ended up finding Sacred Mountain. Granted it was a bit farther than I had originally wanted, it was SO WORTH it and we honestly couldn't be happier. Sacred Mountain is breathtaking with the greenery everywhere. I fell in love with the Sunset Plateau, which is where we held our ceremony. But it was also amazing that we had a different vibe for the cocktail hour just a walk down from the plateau and for the reception. Our guests raved about how everything flowed so well from each part of our wedding and how beautiful everything was. Finally, the SMJ team was so great. They were on top of everything, accommodating, and friendly. Our wedding dreams came true, so thank you, Sacred Mountain. :)Sent on 06/09/2019
Sacred Mountain Julian's reply:Kay,
Sacred Mountain Retreat was an AMAZING venue to plan a once-in-a-lifetime wedding. My couple was able to spend a few extra days with their closest friends and family on the property's (3) lodgings - which really made this wedding special. Each home on the property has been tastefully renovated in a modern rustic / shabby chic / farmhouse style that would make even Joanna Gaines envious. You simply cannot beat the majestic views of the Julian valley - and the mountain quiet... it's a sense of peace most city-folk DREAM of. Aside from the natural beauty of the venue, Marti (owner) and her staff (especially Melanie and Megan) are so sweet and helpful. They truly do care about each and every guest, and go over and above to make things right. As a planner, these are the types of venues I search high and wide for. I know the staff will welcome my client as family and with this gorgeous venue - I HIGHLY recommend it. PS - the venue rental also includes a good majority of your rentals (tables, chairs, etc), which is a HUGE plus. =))
