Its position relative to the waterfall means that you and your partner can exchange your vows with that picturesque element perfectly positioned in the background.

Janet, Janel, and Mackenzie were amazing working with us to use Val Vista Lakes as our venue. They were so informative in giving us our first tour and answering any questions while we were looking for a venue and even more responsive with our questions after we signed with them.Sent on 03/08/2020
We picked Val Vista Lakes because it's such a beautiful venue with a beautiful reception area with a window wall that looks out to the lake and hardwood floor and chiavari chairs inside. We loved that we could choose all of the vendors that we worked with and ended up using several of the vendors that were on Val Vista's recommended list. It definitely made our wedding feel more like us and less like a package that we had no agency over.
On our wedding day, the grounds and reception area were both immaculate and all of tables and chairs were ready for us to setup before we arrived at the venue. Mackenzie was also there in case we needed anything but the rest of our vendors were already experienced with Val Vista Lakes so the entire day went very smoothly. We had 162 guests (17 tables) and the reception area was a good size to seat all of them and still have room for the dance floor and room for the bar. You could probably comfortably seat another 3-4 tables. Also, because the venue also has the living room area, lawn, patio, beach, and garden areas there was plenty of space for our guests to mingle around during the cocktail hour and reception.
Our wedding was just perfect and we can't thank Val Vista Lakes enough for being a part of our day.

Janet, Janel, and Mackezie made our wedding day so easy! They kept in contact months before our wedding day, made sure that we knew what to expect and help plan our day of to a T. They worked with our day of planner seamlessly bringing the all around vision of our wedding day together and I can say honestly 100% say that it was so much more than we expected! It was the best day of our lives and all of these reps worked so hard to make sure it was. The ceremony space, reception, cocktail hour space, brides room, kitchen, literally everything was perfect and we had 200 people at our wedding! We are so thankful that we chose them and recommend them with the highest honors!Sent on 11/02/2019
