My fiancé fell in love with the venue and didn't wanna see others. He said he can see us getting married here and pictured our wedding day! I'm not fond of the green trimming on the outside but the inside is gorgeous! Can't wait to have our reception here!! They also allow outside catering or have ideas to their own. They said to use the venue as if it were a canvas and to fill everything in to make it beautiful!!!

The Monte Villa Farmhouse was a beautiful venue with a really nice back yard and flowers. Since starting new management, they have been very easy to communicate with. Their pricing is also reasonable.

The drawback was that on the day of our wedding, the venue coordinator showed up, unlocked the building, and left. She did not help to coordinate and facilitate anything during the wedding as was implied prior to the event. She next handed my wedding party a long and detailed cleaning list to take care of at the end of the day which included to take extra garbage away in their cars (there is no garbage dumpster on site), mop the floors, clean the sinks etc. The facility did not have enough staff to support our event. Prior to renting the house, we were told that we would have to leave the venue in good condition, not that my wedding party would be scrubbing sinks after the event. That was embarrassing.

Overall, this site was lacking staff support to facilitate weddings, I guess that explains their price.

The location and the setting of the Monte Villa Farmhouse is perfect for a wedding reception. The venue has plenty of space and has been decorated and landscaped well for a wedding. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the actual facility.
They do not have the staff, or the equipment on site to support such functions. The venue coordinator will only help so far as to unlock the building at the beginning and be there to lock up at the end of the night. You need to make sure you have a caterer and DJ that will go above and beyond to help with the set up of tables and chairs, and the coordination of events.
There is no "day of" wedding coordinating, or end of night cleanup provided by the Monte Villa Farmhouse. As a bride and groom be prepared to have to clean up yourselves, or have your wedding party/guests help clean bathrooms, sweep and mop floors, and possibly haul your trash away in your own vehicles as they do not have a trash dumpster, or any sort of garbage disposal on site.
The Monte Villa Farmhouse is very well priced, but If we had to do this over we would have spent more money on a professionaly staffed venue. With this venue, you definately do get what you pay for.

I got married here in June 2012 and we had the most amazing experience! Not only was the venue absolutely beautiful and unique, but Breanne, the property manager was stellar!! Our day was perfect, even though it rained and we had planned on having an outside ceremony. Breanne helped us come up with a "plan B" and had our wedding set up for us inside in the Ballroom. She helped us from day one, and was extremely reliable. I would recommend the Monte Villa Farmhouse not only for the picturesque and ideal venue, but also for the additional hands on help from Breanne. She made our entire planning process so smooth and she is so easy to talk to.

The garden is beautiful, with flowers and trees surrounding the property. Each room inside is so unique, if you chose to, you wouldn't even have to decorate because it is already so beautiful. We especially loved the Bride's room and the game room downstairs. I highly recommend this venue!!!

The farmhouse made an absolute beautiful outdoor garden wedding. It was perfect for my 80 person guest list. The arrangements and scheduling were professional. They do have strict Saturday schedules and book at least a year or more in advance for a summer month. Sundays are more flexible. I would recommend having a "day of" coordinator to help run things smoothly as no coordinator is provided. I would also recommend coordinating your service with the church next door, especially if your service is on Sunday, as it creates a lot of traffic. Have your guests arrive early so as not to delay the start of your service. My only complaint is that they were to provide additional seating outside for my guests on the patio during the reception and they were not set-up or available.

I went to several ceremony and reception venue open houses before selecting the Monte Villa Farmhouse to host my wedding. I chose Monte Villa for several reasons: location (I live in Bothell, so that could hardly be argued!); an all-inclusive catering and bar waitstaff (we had 1 bartender and 5 other staff members); and, the fact that all I had to do was find a florist, cake, officiant, and of course dress. It seemed like the easiest option for me at the time! For brides looking for less work on themselves, Monte Villa is definately an option to look into. That being said: when choosing Monte Villa, you are committed to using their catering company, which was excellent, just know that you can't bring in your own caterer. Also, you are dedicated to using their bar services as well. They are wine and beer only and have limited selections even on that. Monte Villa also goes through their own company for rentals of table cloths, plates, etc. so know that you are again limited to the selection of colors they have available. I personally was able to chose close enough colors that suited my needs, but they weren't exact.
The night of my wedding went swimmingly thanks largely to the staff available on site. The bartender was fun, the catering was good and staff was very fast. We did however run completely out of chicken and noodles; service was supposed to be for 120 people and only about 100 showed up; also we had bar service for 100 people and ran out of booze around 9:30 that night. This is why I gave Value of Cost only 2.5 stars. We paid an extra $800 the week before the wedding adding food/staff for 20 more people (original contract was for 100) and even then ran out of food and booze! That surprised me.
The staff was flexible, I made some minor changes in the set-up for my centerpieces and favors the week of the wedding and they were extremely accomodating. Also, my contact at the farmhouse was responsive to my many e mails for the entire year leading up to my event. I really appreciated that she answered all of my questions in a timely manner, and offered helpful suggestions when I was stuck up on difficulties.
Another minor thing when all is said and done... the night of my rehearsal dinner, all the staff at the farmhouse does is unlock the doors. Be prepared for that. The officiant/bride/parents are expected to run the entire rehearsal. I was not prepared for that! I did have my basic timeline for how the night was supposed to go, but the rehearsal was just utterly confusing and not well planned on my part. Also, the catering company associated with the farmhouse does not actually do the rehearsal DINNER at the venue.
All in all, I did have a pleasant experience with the farmhouse, and my minor complaints definately did not take away from my experience there as a whole. I really enjoyed my wedding night and am very glad that Monte Villa provided me with such great memories!
