    Amazing service, delicious food!

    I would describe Glen Sanders as running like a well oiled machine! They knocked it out of the park, and we had an amazing day. From our first tour, to planning, to the day of our November 2021 wedding, the staff kept us on time and everything flowing smoothly. I can't recommend the entire team at Glen Sanders enough. I loved our food and cake, and also appreciated that they set aside appetizers and drinks for us during cocktail hour as well. They were super accommodating with dropping off decor and wedding items ahead of time, so everything just felt so easy and we were just able to enjoy the day. I have heard nothing but good things from all our guests as well, everyone loved the food, drinks, and just had a great time at our wedding. Thank you Gabriela, Jessica, Katie, Maki, and all of the other staff members at GS!

    The best wedding venue!

    We cannot say enough great things about Glen Sanders as a wedding venue. After being the guests at a wonderful wedding there in 2017, it was one of the first venues that we looked at and it was the best decision we made! The whole team at Glen Sanders is just amazing. They were incredibly flexible and accommodating when we decided to changed our date due to the pandemic. We worked with Gabriela throughout the planning process and she was so organized, professional, knowledgeable, and such a kind person to work with. The wedding day went so smoothly thanks to such an amazing staff. We truly felt like everyone we worked with genuinely wanted our wedding to be a perfect day. Do not hesitate to book your wedding at Glen Sanders!
