We had an amazing wedding at Los Willows. The location is breathtaking! Our day of coordinator, Kendra, was simply amazing. She never got flustered by any of the requests we were "throwing at her." She made us feel like we were the only wedding she had ever done or that we were her favorite group to ever get married there...of course, neither of which is true...but she had the amazing way of making us feel that way. Liza was also wonderful to work with. The roadster ride in for the groom and his best man and the boat ride across the lake for the bride and her father are two of the unique things that Los Willows provides...FOR NOT EXTRA COST! The wedding party stayed at the B&B located above the venue (at an extra cost). I would HIGHLY recommend renting it as part of your wedding experience. It is beautifully decorated with a salon for the use of your hair stylist and makeup artist. Bobby, the innkeeper, was so kind and made sure we all had what we needed. He made our experience at the B&B very memorable!

Liza and Kendra were the two responsible for making our wedding so wonderful and I am so pleased we picked Los Willows as our venue. I kept getting many comments on how beautiful the grounds were and the decor. They honestly took care of everything and made the day so enjoyable. Absolutely loved having our wedding here and couldn't be happier! Thanks Los Willows!!!

Los Willows is an amazing venue, the grounds are stunning and all of our guests were wowed with it! The lake is a beautiful backdrop and the draping in the tent with the chandelier is gorgeous. The vendors they team up with (DaVine Catering for Food, and Elegance on Display for Cake) are great, the food/cake was delicious and I was really happy with everything. The only complaint is that I felt very nickeled and dimed by Los Willows. The patio furniture is ugly black metal and you have to pay to have it covered, and then they will only cover the tall tables and not the short and want more money to cover those as well. For how much you are paying you would think that they would throw in a few table cloths to cover the ugly furniture that I wouldn't even have in my own backyard. Also the appetizers are a little bare, I did the hummus and everyone said it tasted good but it was only hummus with bread, no veggies or chips to dip it in. It would be nice if they added in some other things to dip. I also had a few issues with communication, I scheduled a tasting with them showed up and was told it was actually with the caterer at a different location, something they never mentioned before, I scheduled an appointment for my details meeting and they made it for the week prior, I am an out of town bride who flew in for it, they made it work but it was a bit frustrating, and the cake provider was changed and no-one mentioned anything to me until I called to say they had a flavor wrong on my sheet and I was told someone new was doing it and that I would have to meet with someone new to go over the design and tasting (again for someone flying in, it was frustrating to have to continue to do things I had already done). Kendra is a great coordinator, but she had the last song played 10 minutes before we were scheduled to end and was very pushy about us getting in the getaway car instead of staying in to say goodbye to everyone. Overall it is a great venue and I loved the wedding!

The staff at Los Willows was amazing! Took all of the stress and heartache out of planning our dream wedding. Kendra was our wedding coordinator and she took charge and made sure everything happened on time and everything as it should. Our wedding was a fairytale. The estate is absolutely beautiful. The staff is courteous and efficient. The venue added all the little details to make our day extra special including an entrance on a boat and a departure in a beautiful classic car. Made for such beautiful photo ops.

Los Willows was our first and last venue that we looked at. When we walked onto the ground and Liza gave us the tour we simply fell in love! Everything they have to offer is truly amazing. The grounds are breathtaking, the food is phenomenal, the decor is beautiful, and all the added things that come with your wedding package is priceless!!!! What's really the best part about Los Willows though is their staff and service. They had our wedding planned down to every tiny detail. Liza helped us pick the decor and guided us in the right direction. On the day of Bobby waited on us hand and foot while the girls and I enjoyed being pampered in the day salon provided. Our day of wedding coordinator, Kendra, was truly phenomenal! She made sure the wedding went off without a hitch! She's such a gem! She waited on me hand and foot- even helped me in and out of my shoes for dancing lol. She was unbelievable!! The entire staff that day was also amazing- from those serving food, to the bartenders, to office staff, they were all just wonderful! I can't say enough about how much we LOVED it here. Thank you Los Willows for making our dream wedding a reality!

I recently had my wedding at Los Willows and it was truly the best experience. They are so amazing and make you feel so special and taken care of. We didn't have to worry about a thing and were able to enjoy every second of our day. The coordinators are incredible, they remember every little detail so you don't have to and make sure that the evening continues to flow well. Throughout the planning process the staff was always so kind and made us feel like family. Aside from the great staff, the venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and I received so many great comments about it. The food was also great and we received many compliments on that as well. Getting ready at the salon on location is so fun and you have all this space just for you and your girls to enjoy. We were all so relaxed there. I can't say enough good things about Los Willows, choosing this venue for my wedding is the best decision I could've made.

An amazing venue tucked away in Fallbrook. This place is beautiful, a private little paradise. I had my wedding there about two weeks ago and it was perfect. The experience from start to finish was stress free with the help of the pleasant staff.

Kendra our coordinator is awesome... We couldn't have asked for a more professional, yet friendly person. She always had a positive attitude no matter how many changes we made. She was very helpful and had great recommendations for our setup. It was like dealing with a family member.

I must mention on the day of the wedding, to show how committed Kendra is, she continued to assist us with a injured hand and carried our daughter most of the time during the reception while doing so.

Everything went according to plan and turned out great, from ceremony to reception, to even include the delicious food and cake. We received plenty of positive compliments about having our wedding at Los Willows. Friends and family expressed how beautiful this place was and how comfortable the staff made them feel.

We will definitely recommend Los Willows to anyone.

Thank you Los Willows and staff.

Los Willows is a beautifully wedding venue. I am so happy this is the venue I chose. Everything about the estate is picture perfect. Working with the the wedding planners was easy and they always had everything under control. The only small issue I had was getting a response back via email was sometimes a few days later, in that case I would just call and they were right on it . Overall I would highly recommend!

As a bride you are Leary picking out a venue... It's the most important decision. But rest assured, Los willows will treat you right. I couldn't have had a better experience . I mostly worked with Liza and Kendra. Both were phenomenal in what they do as well as being very personable. And no matter what questions I had to ask, they responded In a timely manner. I definitely could not have made it through my wedding day without Kendra. Thanks again Los willows for a great wedding that my guests are still talking about! Oh and the cake and food were simply amazing as well!!

The venue is beautiful, however be careful of the hidden costs! These costs will be presented to you as you are getting closer to your wedding date! We requested an open bar for our guests, and they served luke warm beer, they didn't have half half for any of their drinks, they didn't have any of the liquor we requested to have, the bartender was rude to our guests and they did not continue the bar for four hours, they started charging my guests after 3 hours because the bartender informed my guests that after three hours, they needed to charge for drinks, not based on consumption, but rather on time. They did not inform us of this policy, in fact they told us the bar would be fully serviced for four hours! We went for a food and cake tasting and it was delicious, however, at the ceremony, the cake was so hard that it taste like it had been baked 6 months earlier! Good Luck if you are using this vendor! Make sure you get everything in writing and you request a final balance when you book this venue, if you don't want to end up paying $8000 one month before your wedding date!

Los Willows Wedding Estate responded with the following comments:

After having a beautiful anniversary celebration at our estate, this couple threatened to post negative reviews about us if we did not give them money. First they asked for $800, then they went down to $600. During our last conversation with them, they manufactured more "complaints" about their event. It's too bad that this is how they are choosing to celebrate.

Los Willows maintains very high standards of customer service, food quality and professionalism. We maintain contact with all of our clients from the start to the end of their event to ensure that they are happy with everything. If there is ever an instance where our standards are not met or the client's expectations are not met, we work with the client to resolve any issues in a fair and ethical manner.

If you want to have a perfect wedding, go to Los Willows. The place itself is breathtaking. They have a gazebo for the ceremony, a small lake that looks so great in the pictures, the tent reception that makes you feel like you are a celebrity with the tent weddings. The staff is very good from the planning until the wedding day itself. Included is your day of wedding coordinator. And Kendra is just amazing. She takes care of everything! All you have to do is just enjoy the day. The food was also perfect. All our guests said the same thing. WOW!! They are a little bit pricey compared to the other venues but it is really worth it. And they will work with your budget. And I would recommend staying at their inn with your bridal party. For the 2 days, all of us were pampered.
It is so difficult to express in words how amazing Los Willows is. What I want is for every bride that is reading my review to just check out the place and you will know what I mean.

I found Los Willows online while looking for wedding venues. We scheduled a tour and instantly realized that their website did not do the venue justice. This place is beautiful! The staff treated us like friends and were never rude and always greated enthusiastically when we arrived for our planning meetings. Kendra and Liza did an amaing job during the planning process and were patient with me when i needed time to think about an option. On my wedding day Kendra was fantastic and kept everything on schedule without being pushy or overbearing. I also loved the fact that everything was in one place and it was private. The Inn was absolutely woth it and Bobby was an amazing host! My only suggestion would be that you request a price list of everything upfront to aid you in your budget planning so that you don't add further costs that you were not expecting two months before your wedding.

My husband and I started looking for venues about a year prior to our wedding. We had visited a few and most that we've seen just wasn't "it". I was browsing online for wedding venues and out came Los Willows in Fallbrook, CA. There wasn't much photos on their site to look at so I made an appointment to tour it. The drive to Fallbrook was a little boring to say the least. Not much out there and first thought when driving to the venue was, "Where the heck am I going?!" but as soon as we saw the lake and this beautiful and gorgeous estate pop out of nowhere, I just fell in love! There was absolutely nothing that we saw that we didn't like and I knew that this was "IT". From the planning through the day of our wedding, everyone was absolutely helpful and made sure we were well taken care of. Kendra, our wedding coordinator was AWESOME!!! And every one of my guests LOVED HER!!! It was such a beautiful place and the weather was perfect! And my husband and I couldn't have gotten married anywhere else other than at that venue!

I absolutely loved this venue! From the moment, I pulled up to the space I knew it was where I was going to get married! I had the most amazing wedding and the most perfect day I could have ever imagined! The staff was great as well. Kendra was my personal wedding planner, but Liza the manager helped meet my needs whenever I had to come down to the office during a time when Kendra was unavailable. They were very flexible in that capacity. What I didn't like, however and please be aware of, were all of the hidden charges along the way. It became almost impossible to stay ahead of the budget and ensure that all of my guests would be fed what I wanted and get some cocktails because just as I thought I could afford to do one thing or another, it became clear to me that it was yet another additional charge. Your vendors are not provided meals, you must pay additional for them. Children under 5 are not covered they are half price, at $50/ plate. It is not worth it to get fondant on your cake at $14 per person an linens are per priced per person, not per table. Overall, I had a great experience with Los Willows, I just wished that I would have been better informed of charges from the beginning as opposed to when they came up.

The Los Willows staff members are amazing, they are very helpful and always willing to work with your individual needs. Bobby the inn keeper prepares the best meals you could imagine, and is always there to make sure your stay is comfortable. The coordinators, Liza, Kendra and Nicole are so friendly, they treat you like family and make sure that your wedding day is exactly like you dreamed. Not to mention that the venue itself is gorgeous!

I cannot began to say enough good things about Los Willows and the staff. I can honestly say that if you are looking for a private beautiful venue that is also unique, then Los Willows is the place for you. My husband and I got married at Los Willows on Oct. 14th 2010 and it was an absolutely PERFECT day! It was so much fun coming across the lake on a boat as my entrance to the ceremony and just having a few minutes after we were married to be alone as we sailed around the lake added yet another special moment to a wonderful day. Also the staff at Los Willows are beyond amazing - they take care of everything (even if you are planning the wedding from a different country like we were) and they pay close attention to all the little details to make sure your day is personal and goes off without a hitch. My guests cannot stop talking about how much they loved everything from the ceremony, to the reception and how beautiful the atmosphere was. There are endless places to take unique and perfect pictures and the place is all yours and only yours for the whole evening.

If you have the chance to stay at the Los Willows Inn, it is a must! It will be an unforgettable, personal and magical memory. I had all the bridesmaids and mothers stay the night before the wedding and it was like staying in some little English bed and breakfast, but you have the whole place to yourself. There are games, and a fireplace, an incredible breakfast, a waterfall and the view from the top of the hill makes you feel like you are on the top of the world - what better way to start or end your wedding day. They simply treat you like royalty and every little need and want is taken care of before you can even ask for anything. Just a lovely place!!!

This place is wonderful !!! It is so romantic and peaceful. I could tell my guests enjoyed the ceremony and reception by the compliments I received. Their basic package is splendid and it just gets better with all the upgrades that are available. The spa was available for my use at 10:00 am and my bridesmaids and I took advantage of it. I do regret not starting earlier with my wedding ceremony, the reception didn't last long enough. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. Debra was wonderful to work with and my coordinator the day of my wedding, Gayle did a superb job.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING. Everything about Los Willows was amazing, and many of my friends and family have commented on this being the best wedding they have ever attended. As many of the other reviews clearly state, Los Willows is stunning - wonderful pictures, tranquil scenery, unique feel all make for a great day. I love the fact that they made it so easy to have the wedding - they recommend vendors, they deal with the caterer, the wedding day coordinator made sure everything ran smoothly and handled all the little bumps that naturally arose. Debra (who works in the office) was my main contact person, and as long as I didn't email her on M/T (her days off), she quickly responded to all of my questions. She was always helpful, even when I changed my mind about appetizers, colors, linens a million times. She even helped me choose the best lighting and linen colors when I was there the last time, and they turned out fabulously. Definitely use Debra as a resource, because she is nice and awesome! On the actual wedding day, Gail (the day-of-coordinator) helped us with timing for walking down the aisle, and straightened out my train for the pictures as I walked, and during the ceremony when one sick bridesmaid couldn't stop coughing, Gail slyly snuck up the side with a cough drop - talk about amazing service. We ended up one seat short at a table when my 2 year old half-brother didn't want a high chair, and took a seat instead, so Gail squeezed another in, and she also brought my husband and I food right away so that we could eat at the reception. She and the DJ and photographers worked together on timing to make sure it all ran smoothly and on-time.

The only slight negative thing to be aware of are the extra costs that add up - colored linens and chair covers (I think 6.50 per guest), alcohol (we just did beer/wine which everyone loved, and nobody got rowdy, just healthy fun), lighting package for colored lights ($300 I think). These added up and weren't in the original estimate, so we spent more than expected, but having had the best night in my life, I would never change a single thing about our wedding.

The single best thing we did was rent the Los Willows Inn for 2 nights (rehearsal dinner and wedding night) for the wedding party. It is not cheap, but the inn-keeper, Bobby, was amazing and he was there at night to serve us glasses of wine, chips, beer, and each morning he cooked a full breakfast for us. The bridesmaids all ate at 7 the morning of the wedding (before hair/makeup), and he made another breakfast for all of the groomsmen at 11am (bachelor party the night prior). We had ~10 other friends and family over each night to hang out and we were able to spend quality time enjoying each others company. Staying at the Inn made the experience even better than it already was.

Also, I wasn't sure about the recommended vendors at first, but the DJ (alex) and Florist (Sheri) were absolutely wonderful. The flowers blew me away when I saw them - better than I ever dreamed. Alex kept everyone dancing and entertained, and made the night so so so much fun.

First of all, this is the most beautiful piece of property that I have ever sent foot on. The grass is always green, the flowers always in bloom, and the lake always peaceful. Definitely an ideal place to get married (even at the end of December).
The staff, for the most part, is extremely friendly. Make sure that you are persistent when trying to get information, at times it took them a while to get back to me when I called with questions. When we did communicate however, everyone was extremely nice and helpful. Debra was wonderful to work with as was the coordinator the day of my wedding.
The food that is included was OUTSTANDING! Definitely the best food I've had at a wedding by far. The cake turned out lovely (exactly how I'd envisioned it) and tasted wonderful.
Even on our modest budget we still managed to have a beautiful wedding here without paying for all the upgrades. I would recommend this site to any bride who wishes to get married outdoors in the lovely Southern California sun, no matter what her budget.

I attended a wedding at Los Willows about five years ago and loved it. So then when I became engaged, I made an appointment to tour Los Willows. This time as a bride. Oh my gosh! I thought it was beautiful before but now it is amazing. First off I met Liza, their wedding coordinator and she went out of her way to make me feel like I was the only bride in the world getting married. Her attention to detail is incredible. I never worried about a thing and had a great time with the pre-wedding planning. I scheduled my tasting and was able to bring my fiance, my mom and my aunt and I can't say enough about the food. What was truly great was the food tasted as good at my wedding as it did at the tasting. I reserved two nights at their luxury B&B so that I could have some quality time with my close family and friends. The next morning, I met my hair and makeup person in their bridal hair salon. All my bridesmaids were there so it turned out to be so much fun, we laughed all the time until it was time to begin the ceremony. I joined my dad in the back of a Rolls Royce and while the ceremony was getting started, I was whisked down to the lake and came across it in this wonderful boat with flowers on it. All my guests raved about my grand entrance and how they never saw such an unusual and romantic start to a wedding before. After that, everything was like a fairy tale. We had the most amazing photographs taken with the lake in the background and then we joined out guests in a large pavillion with a crystal chandelier and special colored lighting. Like I said, the food was delicious. Oh, I don't want to forget that the cake was exactly the way I envisioned it and the different tiers had the exact flavors I selected at the tasting. It was covered with flowers and showcased in a large gazebo. After the wedding, my husband and I were chauffered in the Rolls Royce up to the Inn and we had champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries waiting for us. Bobby, the Innkeeper was so nice, and can he cook! We had a private breakfast on our patio away from everybody and then we ordered a duet massage to truly relax before we started out for our honeymoon. I wish I could do it all over again! I will never forget Los Willows.

I planned my San Diego (Fallbrook) wedding from Japan, with my husband-to-be in Pennsylvania. It was very very hard to plan because I wasn't in the area to plan for the wedding. In my particular case, I relied on the photos Los Willows had online and information from their e-mails to plan for the wedding. Sometimes I wished that the staff would take a few casual photos of the dishes selection, the linen options, the decor options, etc., so that I could decide with more ease what to have at the wedding. It was unfortunate that their response to me asking for those photos was, "We don't have photos we could send you." The day before the wedding my wedding party and I went to the site and found that they had examples right in the office that they could've taken photos of and sent to me via e-mail. That was a bit disappointing. But for most couples, I think, they would be able to go to the office when searching for the right venue anyway. I don't think this would be an issue for most couples.

But other than that I've had good memories with Los Willows. I loved the place the minute I saw it and it is absolutely gorgeous. The guests loved it and were even saying that if they get married they want to have the wedding at Los Willows, too! It meant a lot to me that my guests really appreciated the amazingly beautiful site.

Los Willows is very flexible. You are the only people there. Your wedding is THE wedding for the day. If you ask a special request, chances are they'll grant it.

Los Willows, though, apparently has a contract with a particular caterer. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to have a tasting with them because my flight to the United States was too close to the actual wedding date. My Los Willows wedding planner (who really is just a person to arrange what goes on on the premises only) assured me that the food was good, and that I didn't have to worry. I thought--hey, it's food for a wedding anyway, it has to be good, right? Much to my (and the guests') disappointment, our sit-down dinner was absolutely terrible. The fish we chose to have was hard and dry, the salad was not at all tasteful; the dinner looked as if it was made by a very casual, unprofessional restaurant nobody goes to. My husband complained, and some of our guests complained. Not everything was bad; I think somethings just sounded good but really wasn't good. Perhaps it would've been better if we had chosen a buffet style dinner. But I'm sure it all would have been better if we had had our tastings!!

Los Willows is set up for a DJ. They have a very basic sound system at the ceremony gazebo, but don't have anything for the reception. I didn't want a DJ for my wedding. I wanted to walk down the aisle to a few songs I had on CD, use classical music I had on CD for the cocktail hour, and have a violinist and celloist for part of the reception. It all worked out in the end, but since they had never had anyone not have a DJ there before, their answers as to whether I can use the ceremony sound system for the cocktail hour/reception were quite vague. It turned out, at my wedding, my violinist got caught in traffic and was 30 minutes to an hour late. We had no problem using the ceremony sound system for the cocktail hour and for part of the reception. The three areas are all quite close and it all worked out beautifully in the end. (But they do recommend you have a DJ.)

You can really do a lot at Los Willows. You can have what they call upgrades--unfortunately, they have a lot of what they consider "upgrades." From chairs, linens, cake upgrades, chocolate fountains, ice sculptures, dinner upgrades, a lot. It seems Los Willows is set up so that you can spend a lot of money there. You can even have a Los Willows registry set up (optional) if you want your friends family members pay for your wedding as a gift. You and your husband can spend your wedding night at the Los Willows' estate, which is said to be next to a cascading waterfall. It sounded marvelous. We were going to opt to do this as well, but when we were suddenly asked to pay for plane tickets and hotel costs for my husband's whole side of the family, those upgrades and the night at the Los Willows estate were out of the question.

Overall, I enjoyed my time with Los Willows. It is not quite the best place for a wedding if you are on a very low budget. BUT IT IS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. My photos are beautiful and people still ask me where I had my wedding. I loved it. My family loved it. The food, well, could've been better, but the fruit display for the cocktail hour was beautiful and very inviting. The lake at Los Willows is goregous. The ride they provide for the newlyweds on the lake was magical. (You can ask for them to let the guests ride, too, if you choose to pay a little bit extra.)

In conclusion, I would highly recommend Los Willows. The richer the bride, probably the more magical the wedding, BUT, I was a poor bride, and I had a wonderful time there. I love Los Willows. I would love to go there again.

I planned my San Diego (Fallbrook) wedding from Japan, with my husband-to-be in Pennsylvania. It was very very hard to plan because I wasn't in the area to plan for the wedding. In my particular case, I relied on the photos Los Willows had online and information from their e-mails to plan for the wedding. Sometimes I wished that the staff would take a few casual photos of the dishes selection, the linen options, the decor options, etc., so that I could decide with more ease what to have at the wedding. It was unfortunate that their response to me asking for those photos was, "We don't have photos we could send you." The day before the wedding my wedding party and I went to the site and found that they had examples right in the office that they could've taken photos of and sent to me via e-mail. That was a bit disappointing. But for most couples, I think, they would be able to go to the office when searching for the right venue anyway. I don't think this would be an issue for most couples.

But other than that I've had good memories with Los Willows. I loved the place the minute I saw it and it is absolutely gorgeous. The guests loved it and were even saying that if they get married they want to have the wedding at Los Willows, too! It meant a lot to me that my guests really appreciated the amazingly beautiful site.

Los Willows is very flexible. You are the only people there. Your wedding is THE wedding for the day. If you ask a special request, chances are they'll grant it.

Los Willows, though, apparently has a contract with a particular caterer. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to have a tasting with them because my flight to the United States was too close to the actual wedding date. My Los Willows wedding planner (who really is just a person to arrange what goes on on the premises only) assured me that the food was good, and that I didn't have to worry.
