Having our wedding at Eagle Ridge was the best choice we made through the whole wedding planning process. I had my doubts from time to time, mostly on how far out it was from the Bay Area and the weird layout of the room but I was more than impressed on my wedding day. Gilroy has the best weather in October (as well as Santa Cruz). It sunny and over 80 degrees on my wedding day in mid-October while it was sprinkling, a bit chilly, and overcast in Fremont. We were looking for a venue that had beautiful views and an affordable price tag. Good food and an open bar with in our budget were also top priority. We were also concerned with finding a place with exceptional October weather (Gilroy, Monterey, San Francisco) that offered a back up site we could live with in case of a freak rain storm. We found all that and more at Eagle Ridge. Staff: We originally booked the venue because my mother and I fell in love with Katie spell and Wedgewood's unbelievable pricing. Katie was wicked funny and so straightforward. After she moved on to greener pastures we were concerned about the new girl, Roxanne, but she is reliable, motivated, and did an awesome job! Tiffany, the banquet manager, is also amazing. She goes over and beyond to make sure that your wedding runs smoothly and everyone is happy. I gave them 5 stars because my wedding was fabulous... but I would have taken off half a star (if possible) because of some communication issues such as slow response time or not responding at all unless you call and email a bunch of times over a few days... as well as not being kept up to date on changes such as new options offered by the venue (such as linens and lighting). Packages & Vendors: Wedgewood's packages included services by associate vendors such as the floral, wedding cake, and dj services. The vendors they chose to work with are all wonderful - CJ the DJ, Sweet Pea Wedding Services, I Do Wedding Cakes. Although the package pricing is extremely competitive it's not one of those skimpy "value" packages that make you wish you paid full price. The packages are also adjustable. For instance, we took off the chocolate covered strawberries and invitations and added an extra option to the seated plate (duo plate upgraded to trio plate). Which is not a choice of a meal but all three entrees on one plate... and it's fabulous. We had an open bar for 5 hours and didn't have to pay a huge bar bill at the end because it was included in our package as well. My flowers and cake were awesome - check the reviews. CJ the DJ works for Wedgewood so there wasn't a separate place to give him a review so I'll do it here. One word: AWESOME! CJ kept my party and me dancing all night long. He played the songs I requested, there were no mistakes, he was a great MC, he didn't interject his own nonsense whenever he felt like it (a lot of DJ's do this)... and he didn't blink an eye at any of our random requests. Reception Area: The big windows lining the clubhouse wall facing the golf course and hills and wrought iron chandeliers were a huge selling point for me. I loved the views too. The fireplace, huge wooden bar, and giant doors to the reception room are great. Then there is the weird L-shaped room that throws you off. The room layout...it does work wonderfully even though it's not appealing at first glace. All your guests can see you. You can separate groups in different areas/rooms (which actually came in handy for separating people that might not want to be in the same room but want to be at the same event). Food: We had the Petit Filet Mignon, Salmon Bearnaise, and the Apple Almond Chicken. All were very tasty, perfectly cooked, and visually appealing. I would recommend any of them but the chicken was outstanding. It definitely stole the tastebud spotlight. My major recommendations: I do recommend going for lighting (which CJ the DJ now offers) and upgrading the linens (they only offer short, ivory linens in the packages)... both those factors transform the room into something more beautiful that imagined. Also, spring for at least a cocktail hour. Cash bars are so annoying for guests.
