Finding a wedding venue that is both beautiful AND flexible enough to meet all of your needs is perhaps the most stressful part of planning a wedding. You might love the view at one site, but not the $140-a-plate mandatory caterer. The food at another venue is spectacular, but not so much the box-like reception hall with its dated purple carpet and red velvet table linens. So often, you are faced with a long list of all-or-nothing packages. There are beautiful spaces, but never enough space and freedom to have the wedding you’re truly dreaming about.
Your wedding is yours and yours alone, and you deserve a venue that will allow you to get outside of the box and into the open air of the beautiful Almaden Hills, a venue with all of the luxury of a winery and the perfect intimacy of a wedding at home. Trudys is so happy to introduce you to one of our favorite new venues in the Bay Area – The (stunning) Enchanting Gardens of Almaden.
The Enchanting Gardens of Almaden is, quite simply, the best of all worlds. The beautifully manicured gardens and vineyard create the perfect wine-country ambiance, centered around a stunning Mediterranean villa that will serve as your home-away-from-home. The luxurious on-site bride’s room means you and your party won’t have to worry about transportation wrinkles – you can walk your freshly-pressed dress right outside and down the aisle. An expansive lawn and tiled patio offer you the ability to let your imagination run wild and create your own vision for your wedding day. The Enchanting Gardens is also a private venue – no unwanted gym goers or golf pros or hotel guests will be wandering in to your reception, leaving you free to relax and enjoy time with your friends and family.
It’s beautiful, it’s comfortable, it’s all yours – and we haven’t even gotten to the good part yet. Want to choose your own food? Feel free to bring your own licensed caterer! Have a certain wine you fancy? Bring in your own drinks, with NO corkage fee! The Enchanting Gardens is child-friendly, thrilled to celebrate with our LGBT brides and grooms, and your hosts are even thoughtful enough to provide a sitting room for elderly guests to escape and rest on cool summer nights.
The Enchanting Gardens of Almaden can accommodate up to 150 guests, or 250 with the addition of executive restrooms. Also included with the site is the Wedding Day Management Package of Certified Wedding Consultant Marcia Coleman-Joyner, whose warmth and 24 years of experience will be the final pieces that make your day truly perfect. We can vouch for Marcia’s talent ourselves – she is also the Event Coordinator for Trudys Brides!
We’re simply in love with The Enchanting Gardens of Almaden. And just when we thought we couldn’t fall any deeper, they’ve graciously donated the use of their property to one lucky couple as part of our $20,000+ Dream Wedding Give-Away at this year’s Wedding Faire. Maybe, just maybe, that couple is you.
Finding the perfect venue is exhausting, unless the perfect venue just happens to be right in the neighborhood. We can’t wait for you to discover The Enchanting Gardens of Almaden.
