The Martinelli Center was the perfect place to get married! The location for the ceremony is absolutely stunning with the arbor looking on to the vineyards. The weather was amazing making the location even better. The outdoor courtyard was great too and a fun place for guests to gather and meet each other. Lindsay was so great to work with and really helped make our night run smoothly. The food and drinks were great as well. Overall, our wedding was a complete success and I would like to thank Garre Winery for helping that happen.

We had our wedding at the Martinelli Center at Garre. It was beautiful and well taken care of. Jacqueline was our coordinator and she was wonderful to work with! She was always very prompt when responding to my emails/phone calls. She made accommodations for us to visit the site when we requested to. I never felt like I was an inconvenience when I asked her questions and I must have met with her 3-4 times. She was very honest and knowledgeable. The day of our wedding she did an excellent job coordinating and making sure that everything was taken care of. I had a friend who was helping coordinate as well and Jacqueline worked well with her.

Overall I thought that the quality of the food (we had the Fruit Platter/Coq A Vin chicken which were both yummy). They were flexible with us which was so helpful as we felt like we didn't have to compromise anything and were able to stay in our budget which was important. Staff was friendly and the facility was beautiful.

This review is for the Oak Tree and Pavilion area.

We just had our wedding here on May 23, and everything went beautifully!

When we first booked, the person dealing with us was not clear with some things and there turned out to be a lot of confusion with our contract. Then after we learned she would no longer be working there, we were switched to Jacqueline. She was a godsend! She and Garre worked with us with every step and also personalized everything to us. They were very adamant about making us happy which was perfect for an already stressful planning bride. I can not say enough good about Jackie. We were so, so happy to end up with Jackie and highly recommend her. She emailed us consistently, she fixed any problem that started to come up, and she took down pages of notes for herself to make sure the set up was perfect. She even went out and bought us sparking cider for our guests who don't drink - free of charge!

The service during the wedding was amazing. Before the ceremony we were served food in the adorable cottage/dressing room. After the ceremony, my bridal party and I were immediately found and served delicious hor devours while we were waiting to take photos. And during the reception, it seemed like the moment I thought of something, a server would immediately appear and ask if I would like anything - without me having to ask. They were really on it and my husband and I truly appreciated it. We heard really great things from our guests as well about them.

The setting was gorgeous (which our guests loved). The food was delicious. The service was superb. They turned on the heat when it got chilly. They worked with our time-line to the 't' and even gave us leeway when things were running behind. Everything felt custom to us. They really came through and we are so happy with the end result.

I love The Martinelli Event Center at Garre Winery and Vineyards in Livermore, CA! I got married Saturday, August 28, 2010. Everything was a dream come true! Our guests loved everything about the venue, from having the ceremony on a hill overlooking the vineyards, to the elegant reception hall. Cocktail hour was outside in the courtyward by the fireplace, since it was a bit windy that day, but that only made it feel more cozy. When my husband and I first visited Garre Winery a year before our wedding date, we knew immediately this was the place to celebrate our marriage with all our friends and family. Our coordinator, Lindsey, was just the best! She was always so helpful and patient with us throughout the whole process. She made sure our day was perfect because she even got there super early to set up all our favors and decorations. To top it all off, the food was absolutely delicious! We have heard only wonderful things from all our guests, friends, and family about the food and service. Thanks to Garre Winery for making our day so special!

Our June wedding was at the Martinelli Event Center, and we are so happy that we chose to have our wedding here... it truly was a magical day. We had our ceremony outdoor on the lawn area, which overlooks the vineyards; cocktail hour was in their courtyard area; and the reception was in the reception hall. Martinelli's wedding coordinator, Lindsay, was with us every step of the way, and we are so thankful for her! Lindsay is extremely organized and helped keep us on track throughout the wedding planning process. She was also very responsive to our questions, and quickly responded to her emails, or let us know if she was out of the office and when she would return to respond. She was energetic and enthusiastic on our wedding day, and you can tell she really loves her job. She had everything running smoothly the day of, and helped keep us on schedule.

The food and wine were absolutely delicious, and we received many compliments from our guests on how tasty everything was. (We had a seated dinner with filet mignon, chicken marsala, and pasta primavera as the choices.)

My only minor complaint would be that the servers seemed to clear plates rather quickly; for example, they did not announce they were serving cake, so many of our guests who were out on the dance floor or out in the courtyard area did not get to have a slice because the servers cleared everything before they even knew it was there. Another small complaint would be that they served our food (bride/groom) while we were going around the guests' tables, so by the time that was all done, our food was cold and we didn't eat much of it.

We held our wedding ceremony and reception at the Martinelli Event Center facility at Garre Winery. The location was fantastic, and the staff at Garre is wonderful to work with. They were so helpful in answering all the questions I had, and were willing to do everything they could to make the day special for me. The prices were very reasonable for what they provide, and there are also many options. For example, we chose to do our wedding on a Sunday, which costs less than a Saturday. I think it is important to have that kind of flexibility. Also, they only schedule 1 wedding at each of their venues. There are 2, a banquet tent at the main winery area, and the Martinelli Event Center. We had 5 hours for the wedding and reception, but we were able to show up 3 hours before that to start setting up. That is MUCH more time than many other venues offer. Overall, I highly recommend working with Garre. The service is great, the wine is excellent, and the food was fabulous. My big day couldn't have gone more perfectly.

We got married in July at Garre Vineyard's Martinelli Center. The venue was beautiful and I loved that we had rights to the entire courtyard. Overall, our experience with Garre was great. The taste testing was nice because we could special request items to be served during the testing- including appetizers and main courses. It was also an opportunity to try the different tiers of wine and beer packages available for the event. The downside to the taste testing was that I had a difficult time finding out when they would take place- I had to be constantly ask when the next one would take place.

Leading up to the wedding- Alanna was very responsive and professional. She was a pleasure to work with and was very detailed when we discussed our floor plans. The only downside was she moved out of state a month before our wedding (after working with her for over 8 months) without notice. I met our replacement, Lindsay, the day before our wedding. Overall, Lindsay did a great job given the circumstances but I wish I would have had the opportunity to work with her more given that she was our day of coordinator.

The staff did a good job on the day of- they were very attentive to the wedding party and our guests. They went unnoticed (a + in my book) and everything ran smoothly.

This venue is definitely worth a tour- it really is beautiful and the staff are great at what they do.

We recently had both our wedding ceremony and reception at the Grand Pavilion at Garre Vineyard and Winery, and it was absolutely wonderful! The venue is so beautifully rustic, and also so convenient, with the ceremony site being about 20 feet from the grand pavilion tent where we had our reception.

Our planner Alanna was great, and we want to thank her and all of the staff at Garre that made our special day so wonderful and effortless! Plus, the wine there is superb, and the micro-brew that they provide was delicious! And please, do yourself a favor and go to their cafe and sample the Smoked Salmon Alfredo, it is truly award-winning and very, very tasty!!

We would highly recommend Garre vineyard and winery for your wedding, especially if you love the idea of getting married at a winery, but at much cheaper than Napa/Sonoma prices! :)

Garre was the venue we went with when our other venue fell through at the last minute. Overall, Garre handled our last minute planning really well! We were in the Grand Pavilion which is a tent and worked out perfectly for our color scheme and decorations. Garre's staff was always friendly and helpful. One issue was that we assumed our coordinator would be Lindsay or Carah but with Carah quitting, we met a new wedding coordinator on the day of the reheasal. Overall, she did a great job but it was her first wedding and there were a few hiccups (eg. the bartender not knowing how to tap or pour a keg). Also make sure the heating is on before the reception starts if you are having an evening affair otherwise it gets quite chilly! Overall, great venue!
