    When my husband (fiancé at the time) and I arrived to take a tour of The Thomas Estate we knew right away that it was a one of a kind wedding venue and that we had to have our wedding there. The property has stunning 360 degree views of Northern California hills. When we first visited the property in February, the hills were green. When we had our wedding in September, the hills were gold. No matter if the hills are green or gold, they are scenic. We held our entire wedding—ceremony, cocktail hour, reception—on the property. The property has so many unique spots to make use of—the beautiful home with the wrap around patio, the quaint chapel tucked away in the trees, the awesome pool area with a fireplace, and the large lawn area where you can design and create any setting you want. My husband and I cannot put into words how happy we are to have had our wedding here. Our guests loved it too—honestly, all night people were telling us how much they loved the place and were asking us how we found it. We had such an amazing and memorable wedding day and a lot of it had to do with the beauty and uniqueness The Thomas Estate. What makes this location even better is the fact that the contact, Joanie, is so easy to work with. Not only is she professional, responsive, and flexible but she is also super friendly, kind, helpful and hospitable. I cannot say enough about her!! When it comes to my wedding day, it is hard to express how grateful I am to the people who were essential in helping us pull it all off—Joanie is one of those people.

    I feel so lucky to have been able to have my wedding at The Thomas Estate. Me and the Mister knew right away upon getting to the grounds that we wanted to get married there. The scenery is spectacular and serene, your guests will talk about it forever. Seriously, everyone was blown away by how great the location was. Working with Joanie was a breeze, she responded quickly to any questions I had and she's just a lovely person in general. What an incredible day I had, and a huge part of that was being at The Thomas Estate.

    Having trawled through the commercial venues in East Bay for our wedding, we knew the moment we set sight on the Thomas Estate that it would fulfil all our dreams and yet not feel commercial. With an international guest list from India, UK, Canada and USA, the venue was an exquisite slice of California that everyone was able to savour - the enchanting chapel, the panoramic views over the foothills of Mount Diablo, the swimming pool and the gazebos gave a breathtaking backdrop to the wedding ceremony. Joanie who was our contact went with the spirit of the event, allowing us the freedom to make the event uniquely ours and liaising with the selected vendors. We now have a lifetime of fabulous memories that we can cherish and share - this is an unforgettable venue.

    In a nut shell, it was a beautiful wedding although the manager of venue did not always stick to her word. For future couples who plan on getting married here, I highly recommend that you write out the details and have Joanie sign it before she changes her mind. GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING, even little things that you wouldn't think is needed! When we did the walk through of the location, she agreed to things that later she said she did not. However than her, the venue is a complete dream and our wedding was fabulous. It was just unfortunate that we had some difficulties with Joanie, who needs to remember she is a property manager, not a wedding planner.
