    One of a kind venue with amazing staff

    We had such a wonderful experience having our wedding at Sacred Mountain Julian. It is a truly unique and beautiful venue with amazing natural scenery, and lots of amazing touches that make it the perfect location for a wedding.

    The whole staff there is truly incredible and they went above and beyond to make our perfect day a reality.

    In particular, the SMJ staff worked with us to reschedule our wedding from 2020 to 2021 due to Covid, and helped us manage all kinds of details from decor, to music setup, to special guest needs, and even helped us find an emergency tent vendor due to a chance of rain (which fortunately did not end up happening!)

    Thank you so much to Ashley, Marti, Danny, and the whole staff at Sacred Mountain for making our wedding weekend so beautiful and memorable.

    Dream Venue

    My husband and I got married in September at Sacred Mountain and it was a great experience from beginning to end. It did not take long after our first tour began that we knew the location would be perfect. We had our ceremony on the plateau that overlooks the surrounding mountains. We knew the guests would be enchanted by the view the same way we were.

    The venue is well-organized and they suggested amazing vendors they had great chemistry with. The staff is responsive and helpful. I appreciated that the venue offers so many rentals and furniture included in the package as well as nice spaces where the wedding party could go to and relax prior to the event. The reception area in the meadow was really lovely and a good amount of space for 50 people. I could tell the guests were well taken care of throughout our event.

    What makes it different from other "barn" venues is that the spaces are especially well-manicured, refined, and furnished beautifully. It is surrounded by greenery and nature but at the same time it feels very elevated.

    Beautiful Wedding at Sacred Mountain

    Upon seeing Sacred Mountain for the first time, we knew it was the venue for us. The gorgeous sunset plateau paired with the quaint courtyard is exactly what we were looking for. Furthermore, the staff were incredible throughout the whole process, ensuring that our wedding was moved (due to Covid) without any trouble. Having had to postpone our celebration, we worked with the team for well over a year to bring our vision to life at the venue and could not have been more pleased with the outcome. From the vendor recommendations to accommodating new vendors to providing feedback on our ideas, Ashley and the Sacred Mountain team were lovely throughout the entire process.

    I can't recommend the venue and team enough. Gorgeous space, incredible views, friendly and knowledgeable staff, what more could you ask for?!

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. =))
