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!

Love Love Love the team at Palmdale Estates. Leann was our event manger and Alena was our ceremony coordinator. Both were so friendly, so accommodating and really knew what they were doing. The venue was set up just the way I had imagined- everything ran smoothly, people enjoyed the food and it was an amazing 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!!!

My wedding was perfect and beautiful. Palmdale is a great value and reasonably priced as far as wedding venues go. Lindsey and Leann are amazing and make sure everything is done perfectly! I will never forget that day and I am so glad I chose to have my wedding at Palmdale Estates.

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!

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!

I couldn't be more pleased with our venue choice! Having tied the knot July 3, 2011, I now need to find excuses to visit the friendly staff and beautiful grounds. Veena, the manager was always helpful answering my many many questions. Leann was our event manager on the day of the wedding and Lindsay was our ceremony coordinator. The ladies did an amazing job handing our wedding and guided us every step of the way.

If you are looking for an outdoor venue in the bay area, look no further! The sunken gardens is a beautiful spot to say your "I dos". Our guests were amazed to find that such a place existed in their "backyard." Palmdale Estates offers luscious green grounds for taking your memorable wedding photos. If only I could get married all over again.

Our wedding turned out beautifully. Their coordinator was a little scattered prior to the event but the day of she was wonderful. All the little details I asked for were taken care of. The food was delicious, our guests are still talking about it. Having to be inside for the dancing was rather warm but we had a great time! Wonderful photo opportunities on site. The bridge and sunken gardens are gorgeous!

Perfect wedding venue. I had my wedding here on June 4th (and it POURED that day - in June!!) My one nightmare came true but thanks to the staff (Leann and Veena) we managed just fine and everyone had a great time!
If you are having an Indian wedding this is the place to have it, they are very flexible with food, fire ceremonies etc...
