Wente made my dream wedding a reality!! They were wonderful to work with - incredibly professional and quick to respond to my calls and emails. Our guests commented on how well the wedding was run, how gorgeous it was and especially how amazing the food was. I didn't have to worry about a thing. While many of my bride friends were stressed before their weddings, Wente took care of everything. I didn't have to worry at all. We couldn't have asked for more. We highly recommend Wente!!!

We had a destination wedding and wanted everyone who travels to California to have a unique and memorable experience. We had been to so many weddings at event centers, so we wanted one that had history and culture associated with it. We ate at the Wente restaurant and the food was to die for, plus the scenery was gorgeous. we met with their event staff to discuss having our wedding there, and when we heard they offer a wedding coordinator that was included in the venue fee, we knew that this would be the perfect place. Our wedding coordinator was Christine and our day of coordinator was Kayla. Bother were amazingly responsive to all of my questions (there were a lot) and they set us up with each of our vendors. Since we had our reception outside, they were able to get us all the quotes for lighting, dance floor, etc. I had multiple requests to see prices of different items and Christine happily went back to the vendors each time to request something new. A few days before our wedding there was a chance of rain, and in no time at all Christine had helped come up with a new plan if needed (but it didn't end up raining!) They have a great facility above the Cresta Blanca room to get ready for the girls and the guys, and on the day of the wedding Kayla our day of coordinator made sure we were taken care of. Having a coordinator who knows the property made everything a breeze. She helped us stick to our timeline, gave us wine whenever we needed, and was the sweetest person to work with! Wente also makes the cake and will do whatever design you would like- we went with chocolate fig and pistachio - both were delicious. The food portions are very large, not like typical small wedding portions, and everyone commented that it was probably the best pork chop they had ever had and that the salmon was cooked perfectly. The day of service staff was courteous, quick, and helpful. They give you a list of vendors who they prefer to work with and I would definitely go

Where to begin! We had the most incredible wedding at Wente's event center & lawn. They were very easy to work with leading up to the day - Tricia made sure to cover all the important details with us. I felt they took the time to understand the type of wedding we were trying to have and made suggestions to make sure the whole day was exactly what we wanted. Our wedding day of coordinator was also AMAZING. She took charge at our rehearsal and really made the whole day run smoothly. I didn't notice anything out of place! It really helped me relax knowing that our coordinator had all the details and was ready to go.
The service all night was extraordinary and I strongly recommend any couple take a look at Wente. I would be remiss not to mention the FOOD! Everyone complimented us and literally everything tasted incredible. I can't imagine getting married anywhere else.
Professional staff to make your wedding dreams come true in a beautiful and flawless day!
Wente Vineyards are great! Fantastic settings, wonderful people that are easily some of the best in the industry. I am always super excited when I have the opportunity to photograph a wedding at a Wente Venue!
