We were so happy with our Highgrove wedding experience. Could not have envisioned a more perfect wedding and honestly would not have changed a single thing. I felt that our wedding was stress-free for me because Grace was so organized and I trusted that she had all the details taken care of. Everything was beautiful, flowed smoothly, and made the most incredible wedding experience. It was truly my dream wedding and I am so happy that we chose Highgrove. Thank you!!

From the moment we first stepped foot into the Highgrove Estate, my husband and I knew we had to have our wedding there. Not only is the entire property (the house, ballroom and grounds) absolutely breathtaking, it’s very convenient too; it’s like one stop shopping! I loved the fact that we could have our ceremony and reception at the same place and not have to hire a caterer, because they do their own catering. In addition, they provide you with many wonderful recommendations for all the other vendors you’ll need (i.e. band, DJ, florist, officiant, etc) and give you a timeline to help you stay on track with where you should be in the planning stages. And if you don’t want to look for vendors yourself, they have an all-inclusive package where the flowers, DJ and photographer are all provided for you. I have special dietary restrictions and they were so accommodating when we were planning our menu. The day of the wedding was stress free because you also get a day of coordinator to make sure everything runs smoothly the entire day, from when the vendors arrive to set up until you say your last goodbyes. Angela and Amanda were amazing throughout the entire event. Our friends and family are still talking about how beautiful our wedding was and how yummy the food was. It was a perfect day! Thank you Highgrove!!!

Know that everything will be taken care of on the day of your wedding. The day of the wedding turned out to be unusually hot and our guests were treated to water and air conditioning up until the moment of the ceremony and immediately after the ceremony. Grace found a way to have the bar moved into the reception area so that the guests would not have to be in the heat. The ceremony was outside, but the Highgrove was ready to move it indoors if necessary. The food was amazing, the service during the meal was amazing, Grace's coordination of the vendors was amazing! One of the children of the guests could not eat the kids meal, so the cook found another option. They went above and beyond. I had some worry that I would have stress on the day of the wedding....not at the Highgrove!

I don't even know where to start when talking about Highgrove. Every one of these reviews have said it - Perfect! From the venue, to the staff, to the food... I could not have pictured a more perfect wedding. It was truly the wedding of my dreams. It was so stressfree because our coordinator Angela basically set up everything for us and told us what we needed to do. They helped us create a timeline and also included all of our vendors. There was never a question in my mind the day would not go smoothly. The venue itself takes your breath away. It is STUNNING. All of my guests raved about the venue as well as the food. The fact your cake comes with your package is another wonderful added bonus because it is one of the best cakes I have ever had. A million times - YES get married at Highgrove! Even when I had issues with other vendors they stepped in and helped us figure it out. They are a godsend. My dream wedding became a reality because of them. Absolutely perfect.

If I could give Highgrove 6 stars I would! What a perfect venue and we could not have been happier with our decision! Everyone had a wonderful time and we got so many compliments all night long! The setting is beautiful, the house has everything needed to make every moment special, the decor is romantic and chic yet not overstated, the reception hall is a perfect size for anything between 75-150 people, the service was beyond spectacular, the food amazing (so many compliments on the "family style" presentation), the cake delicious and I mean really delicious, the setting for pictures is ideal, oh my this list could go on forever! Also, even though it began to rain during our outdoor ceremony, they were "Johnny on the spot" with handing out umbrellas so no one got too wet. They even provided towels for the wedding party to help dry off! My only (and I mean only) suggestion would be that there is some type of rain barrier over the pergola (similar to the bar area) such as plexiglass. We feel blessed to have this spectacular wedding venue as an option!!!!

Highgrove Estate was the absolute perfect venue for our wedding. My husband and I live in CA but we wanted to plan a wedding closer to friends and family and Highgrove was the perfect choice. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and the staff is beyond phenomenal. They were so helpful and accommodating every step of the way and made planning from across the country a breeze. Our guests could not stop raving about food, decor and staff during and after our event. Vicky is a phenomenal chef and person to work with and I can't begin to thank her and everyone else at Highgrove enough for making our day so special! On your big day you get a day of coordinator who takes care of every last detail and make sure everything goes off without a hitch. If there were any problems- I didn't know about it :) If you are looking for a great venue that really makes the event special you can't go wrong with Highgrove.

The Highgrove Estate is the absolute perfect venue location for a wedding ceremony and reception! Not only do they cover the food, cake, linens, tables, and chairs, but they also provide the most helpful thing--a wedding coordinator several months prior to your wedding date. Our wedding coordinator was so detail-oriented, and thought of aspects of the wedding that I never would have. She helped us plan the flow of the ceremony and timeline of the reception, and she also shared this information with all of our other vendors as well. Also, on the wedding day, she was there to put that plan into action, which made the entire wedding day run smoothly. She was also there to help me however I needed her. Talk about a stress relief! The food that the Highgrove has to offer is also delicious--we had so many of our guests tell us how much they enjoyed it. Additionally, the cake was phenomenal! The scenery, the views, and the inside/outside decorations of the venue are absolutely beautiful. The layout of the venue is also very inviting and perfect for a wedding. Overall, the staff was tremendously helpful and friendly, the quality of the venue and its special offerings was excellent, and all of our guests thought the venue was amazing! I could actually enjoy the wedding planning process, as well as the actual wedding day, because of all the help and efficiency of the Highgrove and its staff. I could not have imagined a more perfect venue, and had the wedding of my dreams because of the Highgrove Estate!

If you are even thinking about booking the Highgrove for your wedding, do it. It was the best decision my husband and I made! They say the wedding planning process is stressful, but with the Highgrove staff it was a piece of cake (and fun). Our coordinator Grace was the best! She made sure everything ran smoothly and took care of all of the little details on the day of the wedding. I literally did nothing except sip champagne on the day of my wedding.

The food is also delicious! All or guests said it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Definitely get the dessert stations, we opted for the ice cream and smore stations and they were perhaps the biggest hits of the night.

I cannot thank the Highgrove staff enough for giving my husband and I the wedding of our dreams!
