Amazing & Beautiful Venue!!
Due to COVID, my husband and I couldn't move forward with our original plans for our wedding; however, we still wanted to get married on our date.Sent on 09/21/2020
We had been hiking at Montalvo and we just loved the vibe. We ended up reaching out to the Montalvo and Caitlin was super helpful! She provided us detailed information on the photo permit for that day and followed up with us on how our day went.
You cannot go wrong with having your special day at Montalvo - the scenery is amazing, which means your photos will turn out INCREDIBLE!
Thank you so much Caitlin for your wonderful services and letting us have our elopement at Montalvo!

Fantastic Experience for Post-Ceremony Photoshoot
We chose to go with Villa Montalvo for our official wedding photos after our ceremony - the location is fantastic and the permit allows you full access to the grounds to take pictures. The process of getting a permit was very easy. Since we did it early on a weekday, we got the grounds all to ourselves and took photos for ~2hrs. We are really glad we got to take our photos in such a beautiful location and make wonderful memories of the day.Sent on 09/11/2020

We got married here earlier this year since it had been my dream venue for a couple of years. Tiffany and Kathleen are so great to work with! They both were very responsive to my emails and was able to answer all my questions. Tiffany was very attentive and thorough with any/all of our requests. We absolutely LOVEDDDDD getting married here.Sent on 10/24/2017
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
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 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.
