Stunning Venue

I stumbled upon Sacred Mountain after hours and hours of looking online for the perfect wedding venue for my now husband and I. Sacred Mountain was the first one we toured, and after experiencing how beautiful it was, firsthand, we could not leave our tour without booking it. We got married there on August 28th, 2022, and it was the best day of our lives. The staff was so sweet, attentive, and accommodating to our every need. The views, oh man, the views! The meadow was the most beautiful backdrop to our "I do" ceremony. Our guests, to this day, will not stop talking about how beautiful everything was. If you are considering Sacred Mountain as your venue, I urge you to book a tour and see it for yourself. We are so grateful to have found such a beautiful venue for our big day!

Absolutely incredible

If you’re browsing vendors and can’t decide which one to pick, look no further!! The venue is absolutely gorgeous and the staff is even better! They truly just want you to have the absolute best day and they really do deliver.
We mainly worked with Ashley and she was such a great person to work with, she is so sweet and so responsive to any questions I had throughout planning.
We then had Michelle on day of and she was on top of her game! She is incredible
They also have a great list of preferred vendors, we hired most our vendors from it and it was truly incredible.
Thank you Sacred Mountain!

Wedding Magic

Sacred is an apt name. My wife and I were married at Sacred Mountain on August 20th, 2022. We went with the full mountain package and had the run of the property for the weekend, using it for both our rehearsal dinner as well as the ceremony/reception. Weddings go by so fast and the weekend experience allowed us to celebrate with friends and family and enjoy our big day just a little bit longer. As a couple who didn’t want to have a traditional religious ceremony, but still found it very important to find a location that felt special and spiritual in its own way. Sacred Mountain delivered in spades. The ceremony site on the plateau was magical and felt truly special amongst the many venues we toured. Add to that the incredible accommodations on-site and a multitude of beautiful spaces to gather for all parts of the reception and this place really rounded out to be the full package. Marti and her staff were all wonderful and worked to make sure every detail was perfect for us on the day. From decor to refreshments, they thought of everything. We ended up having rain in the forecast and had to move last minute to tent our dinner on the patio of the Meadow House. The staff helped us every step of the way with the unexpected change and we ended up enjoying the beauty of the tented setup even more. The weather cleared just in time for our ceremony, with the sun peaking out as the bride made her way down the aisle. The beauty of this place cannot be overstated and we will surely return to celebrate future anniversaries now that we know it’s possible to stay on-site as a rental. Julian gave us everything we could have asked for in terms of a unique mini-destination wedding venue and we could not have been happier with the Sacred Mountain experience and everything this wonderful little mountain town had to offer.

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. =))
