    Perfect Wedding Weekend

    There are not enough words to thank Marti and her team at Sacred Mountain.
    The town of Julian holds a special place in our hearts and Sacred Mountain was the first venue we toured. The moment we arrived, we fell in love with the mountain.

    We booked approximately 14 months out from our wedding date and the entire process was smooth. Our emails were always answered promptly and phone calls always answered professionally. They were also so kind to let us make a second trip for another walk through. Not once did Marti or her team make us feel like we were a burden. They were always welcoming and happy to help.

    Ashley was our Event Manager and she was so sweet and easy to work with. She went through all of the final details and checklists with us and answered last minute questions. Thank you, Ashley, for all your help and for calming my nerves the week before the wedding.

    The Friday of our wedding weekend, we were in direct contact with Marti who told us how excited she was to see us. We are not the only couple who has had a wedding at Sacred Mountain but we truly felt the love and excitement from Marti and her team. We felt like we had known them forever!

    Marti takes a lot of pride in keeping Sacred Mountain exactly that- sacred. The grounds are naturally breathtaking on their own but Marti has added her own touches to make it that much more special. From the twinkling fairy lights in the bushes to the garden swing, no detail is overlooked. Sacred Mountain is magical.

    We had thirty of our closest family members stay on site with us and they all fell in love with Sacred Mountain. We are not morning people but the magic of the mountain had us up at 6am on both mornings feeling relaxed and refreshed. The cabins are beautiful, well taken care of and stocked with almost any amenity you would need.

    Daniel is another Sacred Mountain team member who helped us during our wedding weekend. We had a question about the heater, he was happy to answer. We forgot to request tables and heaters for our reception dinner, he so kindly and quickly had a gorgeous setup for us for dinner. Daniel was always so friendly and accommodating and we can’t thank him enough for all of his help.

    We also had Kerry on site with us who was amazing. She played a huge role in helping our wedding day run smoothly. Kerry was also the one to drive us around the venue and got us where we needed to be. I know she did so much more behind the scenes and we are so grateful for her. Thank you for everything, Kerry!

    We got married on November 17th, 2018 and still can’t get over how perfect the weekend was. If Sacred Mountain is on your list of venues, do not hesitate to book with them. We are honored to have had our wedding at the mountain and cannot recommend them enough. Thank you Marti, Ashley, Daniel, Kerry and team for making our wedding weekend perfect and for making us feel like family. We are forever grateful for all of you.

    Exceeded all expectations

    Wow where do I begin? From the moment we stepped foot on this property me and my husband instantly knew this is where we would get married! The property was breathtaking! Everywhere you looked was so beautiful! Amazing views everywhere! The greenery and open fields I mean really there are no words! We saw the venue once and pretty much immediately booked! The entire wedding process was so stress free I mean these people and the workers and staff know exactly what they are doing! When our wedding approached everything was perfect! Annie was so sweet and kind and such a help. The workers never got in our way and were so prompt with any issues or concerns that arised! We checked in the day before and the house was so beautiful with flowers in each of the rooms and the fire places lit! I still get goosebumps thinking about our day and our experience there. This place is stunning the photos are unreal! Speechless is the best way to describe this! For me my wedding day was the coldest day of the week and the windiest and arriving at the property took away all my anxiety and stress because nothing mattered it was that gorgeous! When you have scenery like that and views like that then no amount of bad weather can take away from it! Thank you to all the SM staff and Marti for making my day so magical! :)

    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. =))
