    Truly amazing people and property!! We met Rick & Laura at a wedding faire in very early 2020 and booked our first visit in March 2020...we pushed our wedding twice for COVID but they were both so easy to get along with, incredibly welcoming and helpful, flexible and understanding. We just got married in October 2022 and it was WELL WORTH the wait.

    We met about 4 times before the wedding day and every time Laura gave us more to think about and to decide on- which an awesome wedding coordinator should! They’ve thought of everything you can imagine and it’s been so nice to see all of the upgrades they’ve done (dance floor, pavers, etc.).

    The loft is a great place to get ready and it was so amazing for me and my husband were able to sleep there and spend more time soaking in the day.

    Rick has built an a beautiful place and Laura’s kitchen skills are *chefs kiss*🔥

    They were wonderful to work with and I’m so sad it’s over but so happy with how it turned out!

    Intimate Wedding November 2021

    Laura and Rick helped us organize and hold a beautiful and intimate wedding at their venue. It was perfect in every way. Rick was our officiant and his words were thoughtful and very meaningful to us as a couple. Laura did our catering and the food was amazing. I highly recommend Vida Buena Farm.

    Vida Buena Farm's reply:

    Thanks Renee! It was an honor to share the day with you and your family & friends. All the best to you and Jeff.
