    Absolutely enchanting!

    We hosted our wedding ceremony and reception at Saratoga Springs, primarily working with Sam and Olivia as our coordinators. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly fit the elegant and natural vibe we were going for.

    Our event was at the Longbridge location, which didn’t feel too big for our ~110 guests. There was another wedding taking place at the Cathedral location at the same time, but there were no issues with parking availability, sound, etc. The venue is also wheelchair accessible and great for kids!

    The food was awesome and got rave reviews from all of our guests. The kitchen was able to accommodate our requests for vegan options (using margarine instead of butter for garlic bread, etc.), and our guests enjoyed being able to see (and smell) the food being prepared on the open grills throughout the ceremony.

    Sam and Olivia were also very responsive and helped provide clear direction on the day of the ceremony to make sure everyone knew where they needed to be and that all of the ceremony cues happened on time.

    Knowing what we know, we wouldn’t hesitate to book at Saratoga Springs if we were to do this all over again. Highly recommend!

    Simply amazing

    Two and a half weeks before my wedding the park I was supposed to get married in shut down due to fires. This was one of top places to get married, and they were originally booked. We emailed them and they were available! Jennifer, Olivia and Sam were so incredibly responsive. I sent like multiple emails a day for two weeks and they always got back to me super quick, like faster than I expected. They did such a good job managing us. (Something you need so incredibly badly on your wedding day.) The venue is beautiful and well taken care of. I cannot tell you enough about all of them to do it justice.

    Amazing experience, everything went smoothly

    tl;dr We had an amazing experience at Saratoga Springs. Despite happening in the middle of a pandemic, our wedding went perfectly! All of our guests were very impressed at how smoothly everything went and the large, outdoor venue made social distancing easy!

    We were married in Cathedral Grove on July 19, 2020. We scheduled a tour with Jennifer in the summer of 2019 and she gave us a wonderful tour of the venue. Cathedral grove absolutely took our breath away. The venue is nestled in a magnificent redwood forest with beautiful lights strung throughout the trees. Jennifer then took us behind the ceremony site where there was a small bridge that crossed a winding stream. We immediately felt like we had been transported to a hiking trail in Big Basin State Park. Because of our love of outdoor adventures, this venue immediately felt like the perfect fit for us and the ideal place to start our married life together. We also wanted our dog by our side at the wedding, so it was a huge added bonus that Saratoga Springs is dog friendly!

    As the wedding approached, we met with Samantha to start planning the details of the wedding. We both felt quite clueless about planning a wedding, so Samantha’s guidance was invaluable. She helped us think about what decorations would be needed (and how to keep the decorations minimal and low-effort), how to decide on food, and what types of activities to plan to ensure all guests remained happy and entertained throughout the event.

    Unfortunately, soon after this meeting, our wedding, like so many others was turned on its head. Just before the SS showcase, Santa Clara instituted stay at home orders. Olivia and Samantha immediately reached out indicating that they would need to cancel the showcase and would keep us updated if they could reschedule. Of course, they were never able to reschedule, but throughout the uncertainty of the shutdown, they stayed in touch to ensure we were up to date on what was allowed. They also were very flexible and offered to roll our entire deposit to a future date.

    As our wedding date approached, we decided to still get married, but in a much smaller ceremony. We reached out to Olivia and Samantha and they immediately responded that they would start looking into how to make the event still happen. In the month before the wedding, we were in constant contact with Olivia and Samantha, watching the state and local regulations and planning how to have a safe celebration. A few weeks before the wedding, Olivia called to go over the precautions taken by the venue to have a safe celebration. She worked with us and found a way to still safely serve appetizers when guests could not serve themselves.

    Because we were the first wedding during the pandemic, we expected some parts of the day to be a little rocky, but were pleasantly surprised when everything went perfectly! Olivia and Samantha immediately met us at the venue and made sure we had everything we needed. Because we didn’t invite anyone who wasn’t in the wedding, we had opted to skip a rehearsal, but Olivia encouraged us to do a walk through immediately before the ceremony. I’m definitely glad we did! The ceremony was beautiful and did not feel awkward being so small.

    Following the ceremony, we were immediately served wine and the appetizer table opened. Our guests went to the table as family units and the staff put together plates consisting of all the appetizers. This approach to serving the appetizers made it feel very safe and still let everyone enjoy a cocktail hour. During the cocktail hour, the staff often checked on us to make sure we had enough food.

    Dinner was also excellent! We had more than enough food and all of it was amazing. There were multiple salads, garlic bread, pasta, chicken and steak. Again, they made the food feel very safe. They transformed the buffet into a serving line where you could ask for anything you wanted from all of the amazing servers. They had dedicated many members of their staff to making sure the food was served safely. They also made sure we could still have the fun traditions (like the cake cutting) without breaking any of the COVID precautions.

    Throughout the day and evening Olivia and Samantha continuously checked in to make sure we were doing okay, had enough food, and were aware of what was happening next. We didn’t need to have our own schedule because Olivia and Samantha were on top of it! We were very impressed with how smoothly everything went and how kind and professional everyone on the Saratoga Springs staff was. There was never a time that we couldn’t find Olivia or Samantha if we had a question and there was never a time that people at the wedding started feeling bored or wonder what would happen. Overall, we were incredibly impressed with the entire process. We were able to have the wedding of our dreams despite all the current uncertainty. Thank you Olivia, Samantha, Jennifer, and all the Saratoga Springs Staff!

Arty Party Arty Party Photo Booths

Saratoga Springs is a magical place in a beautiful wooded setting for weddings, corporate events and private parties just up the hill (yet a world away) from Saratoga proper. They accommodate small intimate gatherings up to large groups. The staff is congenial and works to tailor each event to the wishes of the client. The food bears a mention, too: they do a spectacular, delicious BBQ spread.

I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding at the Saratoga Springs Campground and they do an absolutely beautiful job! All of their staff is amazing to work with and you couldn't ask for a better location! Jennifer was a dream to work with. As a wedding professional, I really appreciate it when the vendors you get to work with are as amazing as Jennifer and the Saratoga Springs! I can't wait to go back.
