Originally part of the Old Mission San Jose garden, Palmdale Estates is a beautifully landscaped site, featuring dozens of stately palms and native California trees, verdant lawns, gardens and even a pond. In the midst of this lovely setting is Best House, a Tudor-style mansion whose delightful interior and grounds create a storybook backdrop for weddings any time of year.

Built in 1915, the house reflects much of the elegant, ornate detailing of the period: graceful arched doorways, bas-relief ceiling moldings, crystal chandeliers, hand painted murals and gleaming hardwood floors. The Ballroom, though the largest space in the house, still has an intimate feeling with cream-colored walls, an oversized decorative marble fireplace and a huge leaded glass window overlooking the gardens. At one end of the Ballroom, a few steps take you up to The Music Room, a glitzy alcove with gold leaf walls and colorful stained glass window. At the other end are the formal Dining Room and Solarium, two light and airy rooms with an abundance of leaded glass windows and views of the "backyard".

When you get married here, you have exclusive use of the main floor of the house as well as the adjacent lawns to orchestrate your wedding any way you like. During warm months, most couples tie the knot in the white gazebo on the rear lawn, which is bordered by pines, redwoods and dotted with palms and fruit trees. They have their reception outdoors as well, setting up tables in the grassy expanse next to the gazebo. Afterwards, the guests are invited inside for dancing and cake cutting. In winter, receptions are generally held in the Ballroom, with the other spaces used according to the couple's preferred fluid floor plan which offers plenty of flexibility. (Note that Starr Gardens, behind the adjacent Peach mansion, is available for ceremonies and receptions.) Whether you celebrate under the magnificent palms or in the grand surroundings of Best House, you can't help but enjoy the quiet beauty of Palmdale Estates.

I don't even know where to start with this review... I hardly ever give out 5 stars, but Palmdale Estates truly deserves them! Sadly, 2015 marks the last year that Palmdale will host weddings on their property but if that works for you, I highly recommend checking them out while they still have availability!

Palmdale Estates is absolutely cute and gorgeous. My wife and I got married on a perfect, beautiful Indian summer Sunday. With the ceremony starting on a late afternoon in the Sunken Gardens, we got warm sunlight filtering in through the trees... leading to a very romantic sunset dinner beneath the bistro lights behind the Best House. We couldn't have imagined or asked for a more beautiful setting!

Moving on to the service and event planning... from beginning to end, it was a pleasure working with Leann, Lindsey, Alena, and the rest of the team! They are extremely professional, organized, and experienced; they also were very responsive and accommodating to the countless emails we sent them throughout the planning process. Don't hesitate in asking them any questions you may have - chances are they already have a solution for you!

It's one thing for the event managers to be great and professional during the planning process, but when our guests comment on friendly, professional wait staff that also go above and beyond during the wedding, I think that truly says something about the level of service offered here!

As for the food and beverage service... you have to go with their non-alcoholic drink package (which is very reasonably priced) but they do allow you to bring your own alcohol, which is great! While the food may not necessarily blow you away, everyone thought it was very good and tasty - especially given that the food was served buffet-style. We were very happy with the NY strip steaks and salmon filets!

We love Palmdale Estates, and would happily get married (well, more like renewal ceremony now ;)) there again if we could!

Palmdale estates is a beautiful venue with an army of people to help maintain the grounds and keep everything going smoothly. I had my ceremony at the sunken gardens with a social hour to follow. Everything went beautifully and I have to thank Alena, my event coordinator, for all of her hard work! My only gripe is that it is hard to reach people prior to the wedding, but the week of, you have their undivided attention. Palmdale is a amazing value and their catering is great. I got compliments on the food as we'll. everyone raved about how beautiful the sunken gardens were and I had a great time on my wedding day.

I recently got married at Palmdale Estates and my guests were blown away with how gorgeous it is (same reaction my husband and I had when we first saw it)! It was actually the only venue we visited. We had our ceremony in the Sunken Garden and our reception behind the Best House. We loved how everything took place at the same venue but different parts of the property. We had Leann as our wedding coordinator and she was so helpful and accommodating through out the entire process. She helped set everything up for our wedding and take everything down/put everything away once it finished. She ensured we were stress-free during the ceremony and reception. She was quick to respond to emails/questions we had while planning and had things we could borrow for our ceremony/reception (easels, table # holder, cake knife). Couldn't have asked for more from her or the Palmdale Estates staff! Loved it soooo much!!!

Palmdale Estate has a great staff and is a beautiful venue; everyone there works hard to make your special day everything you desire. The venue is self contained so no need to worry about table rentals, catering, chairs, etc. Palmdale makes planning a wedding really easy.

Palmdale Estates was the best! We were looking for a beautiful venue for our wedding at community center-level prices and this was it! The Palmdale team, Veena, for initial contact, and Leann, for logistics, were so helpful and responsive to all our questions. They walked us through all the possible pitfalls and details we never thought of via emails and multiple sit-down meetings. The sit-down food was perfectly cooked and the day-of staff went out of their way to keep us hydrated and eating even when we were running around. I'm a fan of the steak plate. All parts of the day were so close to each other that we saved a ton of time during the big day! Plus $5 per person unlimited beer & wine is unheard of anywhere else we searched. AND we could bring our own hard liquor with no corkage fee and the bartenders could make any mixed cocktails. Everything was run on autopilot so smoothly, we never heard any issues at all!

Our relatives said that this was the best wedding they went to so far. Not just because of the beauty of the place but how smoothly everything ran. Even my non-ambulatory guests were great since they had a golf cart and allowed cars to pull up to the house for drop off. Its so sad that this place is going to be gone next year. Darn you apartment mongers, paving over a beautiful Fremont gem! So you should book ASAP!

We fell in love with palmdale as soon as we drove in. The grounds were beautiful and breathtaking. There are all sorts of grottos and it has a very religious feel. You feel far removed from the busy world. The mansion itself is beautiful..a huge ballroom and adjacent rooms. We had alot of candles which lit up the place and filled it with warm ambiance. The outdoors is where we ate dinner and the hanging lights in the trees added the perfect touch.
Lindsay was our coordinator and she was so sweet and helpful. We were also helped by Veena...they were both very calm and made us feel special. The whole timeline was messed up because of traffic and a late arrival by our wedding party, and they did a great job working with that and making it turn out great. The only thing we would say is that the communication between coordinators was a bit faulty...as in, we would discuss something with Veena and it wouldnt get relayed to Lindsay and vice versa.
The place and the people made our day the dream wedding we always imagined.

Palmdale Estates was more than I could ever have asked for. Not only is the entire venue stunning, and the staff AMAZING, but it was so affordable!

I worked with Lindsey Poulton and Veena Roesler as my coordinators. Both were so sweet and very professional. They made me feel like our wedding was the only wedding they were putting on all year.

We did the buffet dinner with the chicken marsala and tri-tip as the main dishes. It was so delicious and many of ourguests have been raving about how good it was.

You have to use one of their three DJs. We chose Keith, and he was awesome! Our guests had a total ball!

If I could have another event here, I would!
