    LOVE LOVE LOVE Villa Montalvo | So Much More Than Just A Venue

    We could not have more good things to say about Villa Montalvo at Montalvo Arts Center! If I could give 1000 stars, I would. After having to change our wedding plans not once, but twice, Villa Montalvo and their team wrapped their love around us and welcomed us into their family of Villa Couples. As a fellow wedding pro, it was always important to me that my wedding pro team was made up of amazing people who love their clients and go above and beyond for them. The Villa team is exactly that—lovely, friendly, and extremely professional in every way. Beyond that, the venue itself is gorgeous. As a wedding photographer, it was of course important to me that our venue was picturesque and publication-worthy. In every direction, Villa Montalvo has sweeping views of the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains, historic architecture with clean details, and a variety of elegant vignettes for a truly diverse photo gallery. You could literally hold your ceremony at any spot on this property and it would be grand, glorious and dreamy. We could not be more blessed by Villa Montalvo. Highly recommend to any couple looking for a glamorous and elegant venue with a personable events team for their wedding!

    Amazing life long memory

    After contacting 10+ venue vendors we were convinced Montalvo Arts Center was the place we wanted for our big day. Everything felt right on the day: rich offerings on this property for photos, artistic landscape and architecture, caring and responsive staff, and beautiful nature and weather. Especially Caitlin was super responsive and very accommodating. We also worked with vendors who all previously worked with Montalvo, and they all loved to come back. You can’t ask for more for a micro wedding during this special time. Our guests were also very satisfied. Thanks for such great experience!

    Amazing service

    I’ve worked with Caitlin from Montalvo Arts center to do a few editorial shoots with real life couples along with some great wedding vendors. Her service is by far one of the best I’ve ever had. She has supported my wedding planning service from the very beginning by welcoming us with open arms to create something beautiful to inspire couples at their breathtaking venue. It was an amazing experience working with Caitlin. Planning an editorial shoot in the middle of a pandemic wasn’t easy, as venues may cancel abruptly which happened to me and my team. I originally planned a shoot somewhere else but the venue had to cancel one week prior to our shoot date. I immediately reached out to Caitlin and with no hesitation, she welcomed our team and made sure we were taken care of. She’s so responsive to emails and would really bend backwards to accommodate our requests. I highly recommend Villa Montalvo to all the couples who are planning to elope or get married because I guarantee that this will definitely be a great experience not only to you as a couple but also to your guests as well as the vendors you will hire for your wedding!

  • TLC Event Design & Coordination Wedding Planners

    Kathleen and Tiffany are top notch and everything we as a coordination team are looking for! We coordinated a wedding at Villa Montalvo for one of our couples at the beginning of April, that's right, rainy season, and they were so helpful!! Tiffany had a back up plan for our back up plan just in case the rain forecasted for that day didn't stop at noon like we were hoping. From the beginning they showed us around the venue and gave insight and ideas to make our planning process that much easier; and on the day they were just as hands on, helping to keep the estate warm and cozy for the guests and aiding in us getting all set up and tear flowing perfectly. Not only is the venue a lovely piece of history, lending to many photo perfect spots, it comes with a friendly and supportive staff too <3

  • A Day Like No Other Wedding Planners

    There is nothing more elegant than a wedding at Villa Montalvo, and there is no better and more attentive care for clients either! Kathleen and her staff bend over backwards for their brides and grooms. I can't wait to work there again!

  • BIG FUN Disc Jockeys Wedding DJs

    BIG FUN Disc Jockeys is a big fan of Villa Montalvo, having played weddings and corporate events at the venue many times annually for more than a decade.<br> <br> For couples thinking of finding a place to get married, Villa Montalvo offers multiple options and spaces to celebrate your day, from the Love Temple or the Oval Garden for the ceremony, to cocktails in the courtyard, dinner on the veranda, and dancing inside the Historic Villa. The different rooms and spaces keep it interesting for the guests, yet everything is interconnected with the same thematic feel.<br> <br> As DJs, we are particularly fond of the dancing portion of the evening inside the main room of the Villa, but photographers love the veranda for shooting toasts and dinner moments, as the front of the building is spectacular, usually with great light in spring, summer, and fall evenings.<br> <br> Getting married at Villa Montalvo feels like something special. If you are looking for a classic wedding at a historic site, Villa Montalvo should be on your short list.
