    So glad we didn't wait to book Casitas!

    The Casitas Estate was the first venue we toured, and we knew the moment we laid eyes on the beautiful Spanish-style architecture and the incredible views of the surrounding hills and nearby Talley Farms that we wanted to host our reception there.

    Despite booking 18 months out, two other couples were interested in Casitas on our same wedding day, so we're glad we didn't wait long to put down a deposit.

    Much of our family and friends are from the Midwest, so seeing the Casitas Estate was among the highlights of our wedding weekend for our guests. We were blessed with immaculate weather, which didn't hurt.

    Pat and Tony, the owners, are salt-of -the-earth people. (Tony is an amazing cook, our family loved the breakfasts he cooked in the mornings.) Our caterer was horribly short-staff (another story for another time) and Pat and Tony even filled in for them by serving our guests wine. That's how much they care.

    The only challenge with the Casitas Estate is the shuttles, but they ran smoothly and none of our guests has an issues. We ran them to and from the two hotels we reserved wedding blocks at. Pat and Tony were flexible on this and we really appreciated it, as did our guests. (Side note: We recommend the Agrarian Hotel for a wedding block.)

    I could go on and on about this place. My wife and I have remarked that "we want to be Pat and Tony when we grow up" and fantasize about somehow owning the Casitas Estate one day. It is a very special place, and we look forward to returning for a stay in the years ahead.

    Our best advice for couples:

    1. Don't wait - book now! You won't regret it.
    2. Arrive early and stay late. We checked in on Thursday and left on Monday. We actually wish we had even another day to relax by the pool, etc.
    3. Request Janet Tacy as your coordinator. She handles most of the weddings at Casitas and knows it like the back of her hand. She works very well with Pat and Tony.

    Great Venue, Great Value!

    We decided to tour The Casitas Estate last minute based off a family friends recommendations. I had seen it when looking for venues but my husband and I were convinced we wanted to get married at a vineyard. The Casitas was our first stop and as we drove up their long driveway I could already tell it was going to be beautiful! We pulled in, parked and Pat came out to greet us promptly. She gave us a tour and immediately I knew this venue was perfect. The Estate has that Spanish style architecture with great details everywhere. We toured in February so not a lot in bloom yet but you could see everything that had the potential to bloom and be beautiful. By the time we got married and after some generous amounts of rain, the venue was full bloom- green and colorful!

    Took some convincing for my now husband to be okay with the venue choice but he quickly adapted to the choice and knew it was the best option.

    By getting married here we had a lot of flexibility when it came to vendors we chose, event start time and choices of adult beverages LOL! We did the entire weekend package which included the 4 Casitas for 2 nights with breakfast included. This made for a relaxing weekend and made it easy for us to get ready the day of our wedding. The package also included shuttle service, chairs (we chose different chairs so got a credit towards that rental), fun party lights over the lawn, dance floor etc and the best wedding planner- Janet Tacy with Sandcastle Celebrations! It also ended up being a bit cooler than anticipated but Pat and Tony made it super easy to request heaters the day of.

    Pat, Tony and their cute dog Kona were wonderful hosts! We are looking forward to staying here as they do use their Casitas as a Bed and Breakfast when they aren’t doing weddings.

    Perfect venue! The price may seem high but when you break down everything included it’s a great value!!
