My husband and I were lucky enough to find Bear Flag Farm (BFF) through a friend who attended a wedding there. Once I described the type of wedding I was hoping to have (outdoor, rustic, charming, magical and intimate) she told me I had to visit BFF. We looked at the site in January when it was quite barren and needed some imagination, but it wasn't the gorgeous wedding albums in the office that made us fall in love with the venue, it was the owner, Tina Reikes.

Tina is the type of person that you meet and you know she executes everything she touches with excellence. She was a big part of why we knew our wedding day would be flawless because she would be in charge of making it all happen. The venue is also amazingly all-inclusive. She is contracted with the best caterer and florist a bride can ask for. If you are the type of bride and groom that aren't interested in vetting multiple vendors this a great way to go.

We had 135 guests, over half of them came in from Ohio and BFF took their breath away. It was the ultimate California wedding with the ceremony under a gorgeous tent and a reception underneath the stars. None of the guests had ever experienced what most described as "magical". The design aspects were lead by Tina while I simply told her my absolute wants and definite no's. Her and her team looked at a Pinterest board I created to get a feel for who I was along with a couple in person meetings and they executed my dream wedding, within our budget and without any drama. She also coordinated a couple of surprises with my husband that I had no idea about.

I wish I could post pictures of all the stunning details. If you are considering a wedding in Northern California, do not miss out on the opportunity to visit Bear Flag Farm. It is an option you will want to have, if not the venue you end up choosing!

During our search for a wedding venue, I kept coming across Bear Flag Farm. This venue embodied everything I had dreamed of for my wedding day. My husband and I are from San Diego and most of our guest were from Southern California. We wanted somewhat of a destination wedding at an outdoor, winery, farm, rustic, intimate venue. Bear Flag Farm was EXACTLY what we wanted. We visited the farm on a stormy day in February... and even in the rain, Bear Flag Farm took my breath away.

If I wasn't already in love with Bear Flag Farm (which I was), what really sealed the deal for us was the owner and event coordinator, Tina Reikes. She makes perfection look easy. From the day we made the decision to have our wedding at BFF, Tina was in constant contact with us. She listened to all of our wishes and turned them into reality. Tina manages the number of weddings they do in a year so she can dedicate her time and give you the attention needed for your big day. Tina only works with the "best of the best" when it comes to vendors, and her taste is impeccable. From the beginning she was on top of everything, making sure the things that have potential to book quickly (band, hair and makeup, transportation) were reserved for our date. She even helped us out with booking our rehearsal dinner! This was such a huge help for me, being from out of town. I knew we were in good hands, so I left a lot of the design and layout ideas up to Tina and her team. When I showed up to BFF on the day of the wedding, I was absolutely blown away. All of my hopes and dreams for that day had been exceeded... everything was perfect. Thanks to Tina and her team, I was able to fully enjoy my wedding and not have to attend to any of the little things.

Words will never be able to fully describe how magical our wedding day at Bear Flag Farm was. Infinite thank you's to Tina Reikes for creating our special day. Tina and Bear Flag Farm will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

I cannot say enough amazing things about our experience at Bear Flag Farm. Our wedding was beyond my expectations and everyone I know has been raving that it was "the most beautiful wedding" that they have ever attended. We live in New York City and initially looked at Napa for our wedding venue - I dragged my then fiancé to at least 20 venues! But as soon as we laid eyes on the farm, we knew it was a special place. It is unique and charming and beautiful. One of the BEST parts of our experience was having the farm's owner and event coordinator, Tina Reikes, plan our event. We were in constant contact with her and she was incredibly responsive to the things we wanted, didn't want and didn't know if we wanted or not! She has relationships with the best vendors in the area and impeccable taste. Being across the country, there were a lot of things that i couldn't personally handle and she was on top of EVERYTHING! She is professional, courteous and reliable and kept her cool whenever I started to unravel! The day was carried out seamlessly and I feel incredibly lucky that we found Tina and Bear Flag Farm for our wedding.

I'm not sure I can say anything that has not already been said, but a Bear Flag Farm wedding is simply the best! Tina offers you plenty of options to make your day unique, but not so many you become totally overwhelmed. We selected her set-price package which made planning and budgeting very simple. All of her vendors were professional and although there were a few minor hiccups along the way, everything was perfect on the day of the wedding.
There are several features that make this venue incredibly unique. First, the property itself is simply gorgeous and nothing like it exists in our area. There is a functional farm, winery, fruit grove (the orangerie), lavendar field, and olive grove. All of these spaces give you endless opportunities for your event and photos. Second, working with Tina is unlike any other planner. She knows her property and how to produce a wedding. She knows her vendors and they work hard for her. She is also able to make just about anything you want happen because it is all her property. Her taste is impeccable. I am very particular and had very high expectations for my wedding, needless to say Tina totally exceeded my expecations! She took my ideas to places I had not even imagined. She also allows you to be as involved as you want to be in picking the details.
If you choose a BFF wedding you will not regret it. Your wedding will be the most beautiful wedding anyone has been to and the planning process will be about as stress-free as possible.

We will not be able to fully describe the wonderful, magical and enchanted wedding that Tina Reikes and Bear Flag Farm provided for us. To say that the evening went flawlessly is an understatement. Tina was organized, precise and saw to every untold detail that made our event spectacular. Prior to the wedding she was a calming and influential decision making in every aspect that we had as participants. The creativity and atmosphere that Tina created was a vision beyond our wildest expectations. If your thinking about using Bear Flag Farm as a wedding venue, we believe whatever expectations you have will be surpassed in every way, shape and form. Hats off to Tina and Bear Flag Farm for providing us with the most spectacular wedding for us and our guests.

Certain people simply do whatever they do to perfection. Bear Flag Farm owner Tina Reikes is one of those people, and our June wedding could not have been more perfect. A guest dubbed it the ninth wonder of the world--and we agree, because the eighth is surely Tina!

Add us to the chorus already singing about the farm's gorgeousness, the field-to-table experience, Tina's way of making new acquaintances feel like old friends, her attention to details great and small, and her unflappable nature. Choosing Bear Flag Farm is easily the one of the best decisions of our lives, thanks both to the farm, whose lavender fields, orchards, and vineyards are the stuff of paradise, and to Tina, a Mary Poppins of a person, who was at once our coach and our quarterback.

The farm is a beautiful backdrop on which you have the flexibility to bring to life your own personal vision--however detailed, abstract, traditional, or outside-the-box it may be. Tina not only internalizes your wishes but also sees through to their essence and, in turn, creates a dazzling event that is somehow exactly what you never knew you always wanted. She has marvelous ideas for how to make your day extraordinary. Fancy a romantic carnival in the French countryside? Here's a French quartet, ferris wheel, artist to paint the scene, and macarons! Tina welcomed our input and MASTERFULLY handled the rest.

At every stage, Tina made our happiness the top priority, sheltering us from potential sources of stress and showering us with loveliness. Planning was delightfully easy, and she ensured that our only "job" on our wedding day was to have the time of our lives. That was easy, too.

We are so grateful to have found Tina and Bear Flag Farm. Our guests have called our wedding the most gorgeous, most magical celebration and the best party they have ever attended. From head to toe, it reflected the joy we share as a couple--and that's what it's all about.

I don't have enough adjectives to describe our wedding experience at Bear Flag Farm. The farm is breathtakingly beautiful. We were married on the cottage lawn - surrounded by a manicured garden accentuated with white roses. Each vendor at Bear Flag was top of the line. The florist had fabulous ideas that were absolutely in sync with my dreams and budget. The caterer was easy and wonderful to work with, innovative and attentive. The food was phenomenal in quality, service and presentation. The key to all of this was Tina Reikes. Tina and her husband own Bear Flag Farm and have lovingly made it a perfect and beautiful venue for weddings. Tina was the captain, the coordinator and all around brain of our wedding. She is thorough, organized, traditional yet forward thinking, calm, patient and stayed within our financial plan -- Tina's staff is equally as professional and patient as she. Our wedding was magical and a dream come true. Thank you Bear Flag Farm and thank you Tina!!!

I don’t know where to start! Bear Flag farms is truly a special place. From the first day we went to the farm. I knew this was where my wedding would be. I had looked at many venues and none of them compared to the Farm, Tina and her wonderful staff. My husband and I were looking for a venue that was unique, breathtaking and a place that would reflect our love for each other. We wanted the freedom to create a magical, memorable experience. I wanted a place where every detail was important. From the Organic farm to table experience to the idea of just being out in the lavender fields for the ceremony seemed very serene, to experiencing all the Amazing detail of our wedding. I loved that every time I met with Tina any out of the box idea for our wedding was possible. Tina can make any idea happen! I have a lot of trust and respect for Tina. I trusted Tina and I really just let her do her wonderful Tina MAGIC! I knew with Bear Flag Farms I was not going to get a cookie cutter wedding or the wedding from 2 seasons ago. Every thing with Tina and the Farm is Fresh and Unique and way a head of the wedding game. Tina even surprised us at the wedding with details I had completely forgotten we discussed. Which made for some WONDERFUL experiences on our wedding day! The Amazing thing about having our wedding at Bear Flag Farms is on June 16th, 2012 Our Wedding was flawless, Magical and truly unforgettable. Our Family and Friends are still blown away with how stunning everything was. One of the other AMAZING things about Bear Flag Farms is I honestly remember my wedding. I was present at every moment and I know that was made possible because Tina and her staff dealt with any wedding issue that may have came up on our special day. My Husband and I will always hold a special place in our hearts for Bear Flag Farms. Our Wedding was beyond dreamy, perfect and Magical... That is the only thing all of Tina's wedding have in common. She creates this beautiful ethereal love haze.

Bear Flag Farm is an AMAZING place and it makes for a truly spectacular event. Almost a year later, our friends and family are still raving about how wonderful our wedding was (many people have said "Best wedding ever!!") and every time I look back at our album it takes my breath away. (See for yourself: http://www.stylemepretty.com/2012/12/14/california-bear-flag-farm-wedding-from-onelove-photography/)

There is no more beautiful place on Earth than Bear Flag Farm. Seriously. The farm has been designed specifically with weddings in mind, so everything is seamless. For those who care about the look/feel/design of your wedding, this is the place for you.

Tina Reikes (the farm's owner) makes Bear Flag Farm what it is. Her attention to detail is impeccable and she has a fantastic eye for design. Combine that with her dream team of vendors (she only works with the very best in the area) and you can truly rest assured that everything will look amazing, taste delicious and run smoothly from beginning to end. As a bride who was planning from afar (I live in Houston), it was especially wonderful working with Tina and knowing that everything would be attended to. I also plan events for a living, so I am aware of all the chaos that goes on behind the scenes. Luckily, I could breath easy with Tina as my team captain!

If I had the chance to go back and do it all over again, I would. Simply put, Bear Flag Farm is a magical place. I feel very blessed to have been able to be married there and I whole-heartedly recommend it to any bride looking for a unique and sophisticated outdoor venue.

Tina made our daughter's wedding stunningly beautiful, elegant, and most of all easy. As Mother of the Bride I felt included on every step of the process. Tina surveys the bride and groom and the parents and from this data creates the look and feel of your special day. She really makes you feel at home and is very personable and wonderful to work with. She really listens to her clients. Her attention to detail is amazing. The overall design is catered to your needs. The selection of colors and textures is superb. The flowers are exquisite! Of course the setting of Bear Flag Farm is absolutely gorgeous! There are several venues to choose from to have the ceremony, cocktails, and dinner. Getting the bride ready in the "Green Room" is truly elegant. On the big day Tina has a wonderful staff that sets up your tables, coordinates venders, and makes your day effortless. I was not worried about any detail and could truly enjoy my daughter's day. It was magical and went by all too fast. Tina also has a great resource of wonderful venders for the extra's (hair and make-up, photo booth, drive-away cars, busses, cakes, invitations, among many others). All of my friends loved the wedding, the setting, the flowers, the food, everything! All of my daughter's friends said "Best wedding ever!!!!" So to Tina and her colleagues a huge THANK YOU for making a dream come true. Bear Flag Farm is definitely 5 stars and then some.
