Monica was our wedding venue planner at the Dolce Hayes Mansion. Monica was very thorough, responsive, friendly and professional. The Dolce Hayes Mansion was very accomodating to our needs during the rehearsal as well as on our wedding day. Prices for the venue was very reasonable in comparison to other vendors. I would recommend Dolce to anyone expecting a successful wedding venue from beginning to end.

This was a perfect venue. It had everything you need for the bride and groom and all the guest. It is a one stop shop. They cater to the bride and groom and make them feel like their special day is the most important event, as it should be.

WOW! What a great place to have a wedding. We had a small (60 people) wedding, so we were able to use different rooms of the mansion. Im not sure how it would be for a large wedding but for our size I highly recommend it. The prices were great and its all inclusive...no hidden charges, which was really nice. We knew exactly what we were paying when we booked. The ladies where great with all the details...I had nothing to worry about. Theres also no need to hire a wedding coordinator or even a day of coordinator. Everything was well organized and went very smoothly. The day was so amazing!

We selected the Dolce Hayes Mansion for our ceremony and reception (the East Lawn and the Patio Room) and our day was all we had hoped for and much, much more!! We were blessed to have Liveth Ramos as our Event Manager and she worked with us (our budget, etc.) and made sure that everything came together just as we had envisioned our wedding. Liveth is a dedicated professional who is passionate about her job and making dreams come true. We highly recommend the Dolce Hayes Mansion for your wedding venue with Liveth Ramos as your Event Manager.

Thank you, Liveth!

We had our wedding at Hayes Mansion less than 2 weeks ago and had an absolute blast! The venue is absolutely beautiful. We had the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all at the mansion, which was very convenient as the guests didn't have to drive to different locations and all 3 events were practically in the same area. The grand ballroom is a pretty decent size. Our wedding had about 200 people and there was plenty of breathing room and never once felt crowded.

The price was the average amount most of the venues we checked out were (around $30k). Saturday's food & beverage minimum is $21k (service fees, tax and other mandatory costs bumped it up to $30k). With a food & beverage minimum, it really doesn't matter if you invite 50 people or 200, the cost will unfortunately be the same. The Friday and Sunday food & beverage minimum is $14k (at least that's the cost around October, I believe summer may be more).

Hayes Mansion offered special pricing for hotel rooms for the guests at $109/night ($126 after fees and taxes), which is a pretty decent price. A handful of our guests ended up staying there since the price was reasonable and the location of the rooms were very convenient. The room we booked the day before the wedding was literally just upstairs from the grand ballroom. They offered us a complimentary mansion suite upgrade the night of the wedding and gave us the 2nd largest room in the hotel. The bathroom was the size of our room the night before!

Also included in the package is the wedding cake (from Jen's Cake in San Jose). We had to meet with Jen's Cake separately to do the cake tasting and discuss the design. We also hired a recommended decorator (Fine Linen) which was a very reasonable price as well. Since Jen's Cakes and Fine Linen works directly with Hayes Mansion, they coordinate with the venue as far as when to set up, so that's 2 less vendors you have to worry about, which made wedding planning a bit easier on us.

Sheri Mclaney, the Catering Sales Manager, at Dolce Hayes Mansion was really helpful. I wouldn't recommend the downstairs room for a reception, but if you can book the patio that is the way to go. :) We held the ceremony on the grass out front and then held the reception outside on the patio. It was a beautiful event.

Hayes Mansion was actually our second choice, but we were happy with the result. It made great backdrop for our ceremony and pictures. They have over 200 rooms so it was nice to have a one-stop shop there-ceremony, reception and hotel stay.We had 5 months to plan the wedding and we got to work with JoAnn Danna and she was wonderful. She always kept calm and professional and was always available when I needed her. Our reception was in the Edenvale Room and with lighting the place looked great. We had a great time at the mansion and so did our guests, we will visit the mansion every year on our anniversary and reminisce.

I have mixed emotions for writing this review. There were some days where it was SO easy working with the Hayes Mansion and other days, I wondered why they were making it so difficult. They churn out weddings, particularly Indian weddings, yet it felt so ad hoc. It's such a beautiful wedding and if you're willing to roll up your sleeves, it's a great place to get married. We were very involved and on a tough budget and therefore, it made it hard to swallow some of the additional fees they threw on throughout. Overall, the place is very special and so easy for guests because they can stay right on site. Our guests LOVED it. However, from a planning perspective, I feel like it could have been easier. Shannon was very kind and hands on, but I feel like didn't have negotiating power and ownership that we hoped for. There were too many cooks in the kitchen and we never knew who we were really dealing with. Like anything, make sure your contract is extremely detailed and has exactly what you want. We felt like they may have overcharged us for beverages but there's really no telling. They are honest people and if you are upfront and willing to spend a little more money, it's a great spot to get married!!
