We had the wedding of the century and Pala Mesa was the place! The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous! And the coordinators (Lindsey and Briana) work with you every step of the way, always available for the many questions we had leading up to the wedding. The day of the wedding they were invaluable at keeping us all calm and only concentrating on 'us'....they handled EVERYTHING else. Always checking in to see if they could help. I highly recommend them for any events, we are 100% thrilled!

We had our wedding on April 2 2016. Best wedding venue. The staff is great! the food is awesome! The first place we saw and the only one i wanted to see after. Pala mesa is such a beautiful venue. Our guest kept saying how beautiful of a wedding venue it is and how we found it. I cant keep expressing how beautiful the venue is and how much i fell in love with this place! Dont think about it twice if you should have your wedding here. You will not regret it.

Pala Mesa is the most amazing place in the world!!! There is no other place in Southern California that compares if you want to do your ceremony and your reception in one area. (and I looked at about 15 venues) The site is absolutely breathtaking and everything is right there!! The wedding site is on the side of a mountain tucked away from the golf course and it has a beautiful bell tower for the ceremony site and then a HUGE tent for the reception!! The Tent has a backdrop of a waterfall that was behind our sweetheart table where everyone took their own pictures in front of..It has beautiful drapings and chandeliers..The lighting was incredible for photos all day/night..the food was all incredible, my guests all raved about it! My guests were blown away with the sites beauty as well. The best part about having it there too was that all your guests can stay at the resort and walk to the wedding and reception! The resorts not too busy on the day to day so they don't run out of rooms too often and it'd super cheap so your guests will appreciate it!! As for service and the staff..OH MY GOSH, they were amazing! From meeting Luciana initially, then working with Lorena for the room block, and then Briana for everything else, we just had such an amazing experience!!! These people do probably 2-3 weddings a week so I have NO idea how they balance it all!! Briana was on top of EVERYTHING!! I would email her with 10 line items and she would get back to me within a few hours answering ALL my questions! It was like my wedding was the only wedding she was working on! Even if she wasn't working, she would let me know she got the email and would answer as soon as she returned! She was so amazing, I don't have room to write here but I put more on yelp! CHOOSE THIS PLACE YOU WONT REGRET IT!!!! Thank you Pala Mesa for an AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!

Since the moment I asked for more information on Weddings at Pala Mesa Resort, to even after our Wedding, the staff at Pala Mesa has been amazing!

We had three events for the Wedding Weekend at Pala Mesa Resort since most of our guest were visiting from out of town. We had a Welcome Cocktail Reception, our Wedding Reception (no ceremony since ours was held in a church) and a Farewell Brunch. Most of our guest even stayed at the resort which made everything a lot easier for our Guest.

All of the staff for all of the events were so kind and attentive. I have to say that Briana is truly amazing! She was so thoughtful and fun to work with during all of the planning.

I would highly recommend considering Pala Mesa for your Wedding and Events!

I am so happy we chose Pala Mesa Resort for our rehearsal dinner and wedding venue. The grounds are beautiful, the food is delicious, and the hospitality was amazing. We got married on 10.17.15 and I mostly dealt with Briana and Luciana. They were both such a pleasure to work with and helpful no matter what my crazy questions or requests were. We also had the rehearsal dinner and farewell brunch on site as well, both of which were a great time.

We got lucky and had our wedding just after the artificial turf was installed in the ceremony location and the chandeliers in the reception tent, both of which were fabulous additions.

My husband, dad, groomsmen, and other family members enjoyed a round of golf before the rehearsal dinner and they said the course was amazing. All of us girls took a little trip to the winery just up the street which I would highly recommend as well. Overall our entire wedding weekend was fabulous from start to finish!

Searched high and low to find the perfect venue for our destination wedding - thank goodness we found Pala Mesa! It was the perfect venue to provide a mini vacation for everyone while at the same time hosting the perfect wedding for our guests. The Wedding Team (Cara, Briana and Luciana) were an absolute joy to work with. With planning a destination wedding, I had a million and one questions leading up to our wedding and probably sent just as many emails to Briana - she answered everything with detail, always in a timely manner. Cara hosted our tasting and rehearsal - both of which went smoothly as she organized and coordinated everything seamlessly. These two were a godsend the day of the wedding! They set everything out and ensured that everything went smoothly - for which I am grateful for! If you're looking for a wedding venue, look no further! The property itself is beautiful and the staff is simply amazing!!!

Our wedding was just on May 9, 2015. Pala Mesa was the first and only venue we looked at before we decided we MUST have our wedding here. The beauty is beyond breathtaking. Pala Mesa is so lush with tons of flowers and plants and is just overall extremely well kept. I knew that the beauty of Pala Mesa meant very minimal (if any) work needed to be done on my end to make sure it was a beautiful wedding. After we met Luciana (wedding Director), we were sold. She was so helpful, friendly and always made us feel like top priorities. Briana (wedding services manager) was also so helpful and attentive. She was always so prompt to respond to my (countless) emails! We also had our rehearsal dinner there, and Todd (restaurant coordinator) was the best! So sweet and did everything to accommodate our large party! Our wedding day ran SO smoothly. We had so many guests come up to us on our wedding day and say that they've never been to such a gorgeous and fun wedding. Which, as a bride (especially as Type A as I am), was the biggest and greatest compliment we could have received. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue and it's staff! If you are considering having your wedding here, just know that you will be in great hands and that you will have a phenomenal wedding day!

My son and daughter-in-law had their ceremony and reception take place at Pala Mesa Resort and I can truly say that the day was Perfect!

We knew our experience was going to be flawless from the moment we booked based off of the wonderful relationship we built with Luciana. She thoroughly went over the packages being offered made the process very easy when it came to signing a contract and moving forward with their dream wedding. She was also able to assist us in get our room block set for our guests which our family and friends loved. The room rate was very reasonable and it was so great knowing our guests could stay to enjoy the entire evening without having to drive home.

They also had the opportunity to work with Briana who was so detailed, organized, and just a doll. Briana ran the rehearsal and was the day of coordinator. She checked in on us regularly throughout the day and also set up the decorations. She met up with the vendors and made sure everything was running on schedule and being set correctly.

The ceremony and reception were perfect. Everything ran so smoothly and on schedule. The dinner was delicious and the servers were professional. A captain take over for the evening when it was time for Briana to leave. Briana introduced him to the my son and daughter-in law, my husband and I, and my daughter-in-laws parents.The transition was seamless and he was very helpful. He checked in on us frequently just to make sure we were doing ok and assisted in getting all of our items picked up.

Pala Mesa provided such wonderful service not only to my son and daughter-in law, but to our family and friends. Everyone had such an amazing evening and we just kept hearing how perfect the night was. Thank you Pala Mesa for the unforgettable and amazing experience!

This venue is BEAUTIFUL! Briana Gesswein was my wedding coordinator from the venue and she was just a doll to work with. So polite, professional and on-top of everything. The food and the portion size they provided to us and our guests was perfect. Nobody left hungry! The bar staff was courteous and professional to everyone. The food service staff was attentive to all my guests and kept the reception very tidy. Loved it! Pala Mesa Resort was all-around the BEST place to have an outdoor ceremony and walk a few feet to our tented reception. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!

The venue is perfect for a wedding or any celebration. I was shocked when I saw the beautiful grounds. I had no idea that it was hiding off of old highway 395. As soon as I pulled up my mouth dropped. I was excited to find this hidden gem. I used Pala Mesa Resort for my wedding and I am glad that I did. Every guest enjoyed the grounds and being able to stay on site. Pala Mesa was very accommodating and made my wedding a breeze. I enjoyed the service I had in the bridal suite and having a honeymoon suite for the evening. If I was to have the wedding again I would pick Pala Mesa. I was more than pleased with the grounds, the service and the smiles on all of my guests faces.
