I was so pleased with the work the Megan Cary's team did for my wedding. Leading up to the wedding, Megan and her wonderful artist, Nicole, were extremely flexible and helpful in understanding how to build my look and setting up my trial. On the day of the wedding, both of our artists, Nicole and Chrystal, arrived ahead of schedule and set up amidst the craziness in the bridesmaid suite. Both were incredibly professional while also being fun, and they blended in with our group perfectly. They finished ahead of schedule and had our day off to a great start. On top of that, everyone's makeup and hair looked absolutely gorgeous! In our group was a number of girls who don't typically wear a ton of makeup, and Nicole and Chrystal were able to navigate that perfectly and make every single girl (age range from 13 to 50+) feel absolutely gorgeous with looks that lasted all day. I was so pleased with the work that this team did and I would definitely recommend them!

If you're fortunate enough to be married inside Mission Santa Clara, this is a great venue. It was so easy for our guests, and didn't require them to drive to the reception site. Our wedding was in late May, and even though the wisteria was no longer blooming, everything was green and beautiful. Because of the size of our guest list, an outdoor reception was the only option, which is what we wanted anyway. We had a lot of compliments from guests on how beautiful the reception was, even now 6 months later!

I would say the only downside is that it is a university campus, and if your wedding is during the school year, be prepared for some wedding crashers. With a dorm just a few hundred feet away, we had 3 students walk up to our bar (luckily the hosted bar had closed by then). I happened to see them and had my husband's uncle ask them to leave. Once the party moved inside, we had a couple girls wander in to investigate the music, but as soon as they saw me they left. They're good stories to laugh back on now, and considering those were the only issues, I'd say not bad at all! Otherwise, everything else came out exactly the way I had envisioned it!

Scheduling times to meet with them was bit tough. Part of it was because we live in Sacramento and had to make the 2+ hour drive during the week. The other part was that the Adobe Lodge has short operating hours during the week. This gave us a very small window to work in. The coordinator we were originally working with went on maternity leave and left the Ryan to do everything for the restaurant and the venue by himself. There was some miscommunication because of this, but it all worked out in the end. Our day-of coordinator said she had a good experience working with Ryan and the rest of the event staff.

I think my favorite part was that every time we got up from our table, our glasses were refilled by magical wine elves.

As another reviewer mentioned, there are tons of weddings here so you do have to be quick to book if you want a specific date and time, but the upside is they really know what they are doing. Andrew was there from the Mission staff to walk us through at the rehearsal and the big day, and he was fabulous to work with. It really is a beautiful location!

I had my wedding ceremony at Mission Santa Clara in August 2012. Remember only current current students or alumni are able to to have a wedding at this venue. Cost is $1000 and you have the option of canceling 6 mo before the wedding with a full refund. You must book ~1 yr in advance to get your preferred date and time. It's an older church so there isn't A/C. The sounds system is wonderful and the coordinator did a great job. The church is gorgeous and photographs well. I'm 100% satisfied with my choice in wedding venue and do recommend it!

Weddings here are popular, that is the only reason they aren't 5 stars on flexibility. You have very set times for weddings and rehersals. The mission is absolutely beautiful, and was a dream come true to be married there. They have everything down to a science, so it is very easy working with them. They have info packets for all the paperwork you need, etc. Very helpful.
