    Vida Buena was a dream venue!

    Rick and Laura were the most gracious hosts; what a blessing it was to find Vida Buena Farm. Of course, like most brides in 2020, we had to change our wedding plans a few times due to COVID and Rick and Laura were always very supportive and assisting with suggestions to keep our day special. The venue has so much to offer from a beautiful meadow and single oak tree to a smaller tree grove; not to mention the amazing barn and bocce ball court covered with winery vines!

    The barn's loft area is great for a Bridal Suite. It is so beautifully thought out with rustic and vintage touches throughout the space and the most amazing bathroom. It is obvious that all the elements on the property have been built with love by Rick - You can even rent some gorgeous live edge farm tables for your special day!

    In the midst of our day, there were small things that I had forgotten about and Laura was quick to address! She had a playlist ready for our guests during cocktail hour while we were out taking photos. Laura was a great contact for our vendors, calling them to clarify deliveries on the day of.

    I know it was hard in 2020 for venues, but Vida Buena pushed ahead creating new tables for incoming brides, landscaping and recovering a cute pond and building out an amazing kitchen in the barn for catering use! They were busy this year!!

    While the venue itself is amazing, we were truly blessed to meet Laura and Rick as well and we can not wait to come back and enjoy some more wine with them at the farm! (When visiting Vida Buena Farm, be sure to ask for some of their sparkly bubbles they make at Hovey Winery, it is delicious!)

    Caring, Helpful, and a beautiful venue!

    If the venue doesn't simply win you over completely, the owners will! Rick and Laura are so kind and patient, and truly want to help you achieve your vision. They are so accommodating, and help in any way they possibly can. Laura was an awesome day of coordinator and helped everyone with last minute set ups and keeping everything on track!

    This venue was the most perfect place for us to get married. It was everything we had dreamed and hoped for! From the gorgeous big oak to the twinkling lights in the Shady Grove. It was so beautiful and I would recommend this venue to anybody. Plus, the family who owns it were so kind and helped us out greatly - bonus!
