Vizcaya was EXCEPTIONAL. Stacey was our wedding coordinator and she was exquisite. Everything was well thought out, taken care of and nothing was missed. Vizcaya also does a $4 cake credit for their preferred vendors and we chose Nothing Bundt Cakes (but that's a whole other AWESOME review).

If you're looking for something affordable and pretty much all inclusive, Vizcaya is the place. It was absolutely perfect and we are STILL talking about it.

We held our wedding with Vizcaya on 11/16/13. Aubrey was our wedding coordinator and Rachelle took over for her in the evening during the reception. We had an AMAZING experience. Everything went perfectly and as the bride, I didn't have to worry about ANYTHING. They took care of everything! All we had to do was drop everything off to them, and they took over from there! In addition, we had some unruly people in the wedding party and they were "take care of" immediately! (Meaning, they called them and cab and told them to leave :) I can see why this is rated the #1 place in Sacramento to get married! I couldn't imagine having our wedding any place else. Thank you to everyone at Vizcaya for giving us AMAZING service and helping us have the perfect wedding!

Vizcaya was a dream come true the second I walked through their doors.

Cara Bruno was my wedding coordinator and was a joy to work with and was professional and efficient in all aspects of the planning. Cara worked with my 3 month time line and planned the perfect event. She was very well organized and attentive to details.

Vizcaya has beautiful grounds to have a ceremony on. It is stunning and perfect for weddings at all times of the day. We used the side courtyard for my ceremony. It has wonderful market lights and beautiful trees to provide shade for my 7 pm ceremony. The larger gardens area is also stunning and would be perfect for a larger wedding ceremony. The reception was held inside the Pavilion which is equally as beautiful. There are great stained glass light fixtures and tall windows. Now can we talk about the food? I was faced with the troubles of needing to accommodate meat eaters, vegans, and gluten free diets. Vizcaya worked with everyone and created amazing food that my guests were raving about. The appetizers were butler passed and looked amazing! My guests all loved them (my husband and I never actually got to eat any as we were busy taking photos after the ceremony). We were seated and our food arrived. It was so amazing. It was beautifully plated and was delicious. I was so happy with the food. The vegans and gluten free guests were very pleased with their plates and I was very excited to have my family accommodated and happy!

The staff was friendly and very professional. Each member of staff introduced themselves and went out of their way to provide the best service. I never had to worry about anything. The staff worked with my family packing up gifts and getting them to the right car, as well as ensuring the decorations were locked away after the night and safe for the next day. I am so pleased with the staff, food, and the beautiful venue. I cannot wait to go back to Vizcaya to enjoy their bed and breakfast.

My husband and I got married here earlier this month, and everything went fabulously! Stacey was our coordinator and she is as good as it gets!! She was amazing. She was so helpful and responsive to any of our needs. We live in Southern California, so we were planning from out of town, but Stacey was flexible about meeting us and was a huge help.

The venue itself was fabulous. Everything was setup perfectly and the staff was great. We got married in the garden area and also had our cocktail hour in the courtyard, and everything was beautiful. The flowers and plants are very well kept and provide a beautiful backdrop!

The reception was held in the pavilion and everything looked fabulous! They did a great job working with our vendors to set everything up. The food was good too! They have many options and guests seemed pleased. You get to provide your own alcohol for the bar (a huge money saver). The only minor complaint I had was that towards the end of the night the bartender told guests we were out of white wine, but there were still several bottles available...in the whole scheme of things though, this was very minor.

We also had our whole wedding party stay at the bed and breakfast, and it was great! The renovated rooms are wonderful, and it was great having everyone stay at the same place. The groomsmen stayed in the penthouse room, and they really enjoyed all the space up there. They also really liked the grooms lounge!

Overall, Vizcaya was great! We got married on a Saturday night during a peak month with about 110 guests, so we paid a high price, but it was worth it! The night was absolutely perfect, and I definitely recommend it! If you are looking to still enjoy this wonderful venue at a lower price, they offer great discounts for daytime and Friday/Sunday weddings. Again, the best part was our wedding coordinator Stacey-- so make sure to ask for her!

We just had our wedding at Vizcaya on April 25 and it was fantastic. It just happened to be the second day in the entire month of April that it rained all day long with very little break. We had planned our whole ceremony and cocktail hour to be outside and I would say unfortunately we had to move everything inside, but it really wasn't unfortunate at all. Vizcaya itself, both the grounds and the inside pavilion are absolutely beautiful, there is not a bad place to get married here. I worked with Liz Read and she was wonderful on every level from day one of planning. I emailed Liz at least five times every month for a year with question after question and she was always prompt in getting back to me and making me feel at ease with everything. We had several planning meetings, tastings and viewings of the property throughout my year of planning and every time I felt more at ease, comfortable and happy with our decision to choice Vizcaya. The staff was incredible through the whole ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and worked crazy fast to make sure the room was turned around in no time from ceremony to reception with no issues. The food was amazing, every one of my guests commented about how great all of the food was. Every last detail was thought of and completely taken care of by Liz and the whole staff of Vizcaya. Liz priced out several different months, days and packages for us to make sure we stayed within our budget and was always forthcoming with any price changes or additions we may have had. My now husband and I visited 25 places in Sacramento and the surrounding area before we settled on Vizcaya and it’s by far the best, most inclusive and most affordable wedding venue in the area. The day ended up 100% perfect thanks to all of the staff and the attention to detail by everyone at Vizcaya. I wouldn't have changed a thing and it was an amazing day for us and all of our guests!

I'm really disappointed to have to post this excerpt from a letter that my mother in law sent to Vizcaya regarding my wedding in March 2013.
Dear Stacey:
We ordered the most expensive meal package, the Diamond menu at the base price of $68 per head. With gratuity and taxes this price came to a little over $88 per head. This was indeed a generous allowance for food only as this cost did not include setting the tables or security etc. No table wines were included either.

We have summarized the key issues discussed at the meeting.

FOOD RELATED ISSUES
1) Out of the 420 samosas delivered to you the day before the event only a few of the 186 guests claimed to have received one.
2) All guests who opted for the fresh sea bass were disappointed with overcooked tilapia being served for dinner. Sea bass has a very distinct taste, texture and appearance, which can in no way be substituted by tilapia.
3) The tenderloin was served from the tail side instead of a center cut which is more suitable and customary for serving a large crowd. A guest was served a cone shaped piece of meat for which Chef Brian did apologize.

SERVICE RELATED ISSUES
1) Ninety per cent of the pre instructions given by the bride were not followed.
2) Many of the guests agreed the waiters/waitresses appeared to have no training whatsoever.
3) The incorrect wines were put on the tables, Sauvignon Blanc instead of Chardonnay and Merlot instead of Essential Red as ordered by the bride.
4) Some guests were served their entrees without vegetables or potatoes.
5) The HVAC was not monitored and failed to keep the guests at normal comfort. One guest even fainted resulting in the need for an ambulance.
After discussion with our family lawyers, we have been advised the following compensation would not be necessarily appropriate or just, but the least we should receive from Vizcaya a full refund of the dinner cost of $16,009.30 payable in 15 days of this email. We will wait 7 days for your response

The food at Vizcaya was amazing! Our guests cannot stop raving about it. The grounds are gorgeous and the bridal suite and groom's lounge are convenient. However, we had only two minor requests for our reception and neither of those requests were executed properly. We had a smaller reception and wanted the dance floor moved more towards the middle, closer to all of our guests. The dance floor was left on the far side of the cocktail room, farthest away from our guests. We were also told that if we wanted a drink passed around during cocktail hour to let them know. We created our signature drink and bought all of the alcohol and gave them the recipe, only to learn that our signature drink, in fact no drinks, were butler-passed during cocktail hour. Some guests did not even know there was a bar. Verry disappointing after spending all that time and money buying the alcohol for an event! We worked with Aubrey up until two weeks before the wedding, when she told us she couldn't make it and Stacey would take over. Obviously the handoff was not executed very well between the two Not to mention it was ridiculous that our wedding planner told us two weeks before our wedding that she just wouldn't be there at all. After the event, Vizcaya tried to charge us for a linen that had wax damage even though the wax was probably spilled by their employees during the breakdown of the room. After all of the money we spent at that venue, they wanted to charge us for a linen that they damaged? Again, the venue is beautiful but I feel like our guests didn't truly appreciate it because they made everyone stay in one room during the cocktail hour when we were told they would be allowed to wander in the courtyard and patio. I felt over-charged for the service we received.

My husband and I had our wedding and ceremony at the Vizcaya. I actually found the venue on the KCRA 3 A list and decided to have a look for myself. I made an appointment with Stacey Kitchell and my husband and I met with her. From the moment we met with Stacey, she was very friendly and very helpful! She showed us around the property and explained everything very clearly. We decided to book this venue. After booking our date I actually had to change it and Stacey was very accommodating.
Stacey helped us figure out flower placements, table placements, worked with our photographer on the timeline, and she gave us referrals to a number of vendors in the area. She helped us plan our big entrance (which was a dance) and even came in on her day off to help us practice our timing! The venue is beautiful and the entire staff is great. The food is fantastic and our day was perfect!
The only downside is that it is a little pricy; but hey, everything that has to do with weddings is. LOL
I would recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for beauty and a friendly, helpful staff.

I dont even know where to begin with how wonderful the Vizcaya staff is and how happy I am that we chose them as our wedding event location. My husband and I were so happy with our decision. Liz was our wedding coordinator and she was the best! I felt so comfortable with her and we got along so well. I also got to work with Aubrey at the end of our planning and she was great as well. Liz was so accommodating and allowed us to make our wedding day so special. I told her exactly what I wanted and that is what we got. The staff was amazing, the food was amazing and everything turned out beautiful. I would recommend using the Vizcaya for any event. I cant think of one thing i would have changed or done differently.

Liz was so accommodating and allowed us to make our wedding day so special. I told her exactly what I wanted and that is what we got. The staff was amazing, the food was amazing and everything turned out beautiful. I would recommend using the Vizcaya for any event. I cant think of one thing i would have changed or done differently.

I think everyone should get married here. Liz was our go to coordinator and she took care of all the details. I did not need to worry about the placement of anything, I had shown her what I wanted, met with her multiple times and she prepared everything wonderfully. The little things that went wrong, no one had time to notice! Even when the outside vender sent in table runners instead of overlays, Liz made the room work. The food was amazing, what we had sampled was exactly what they served, and when a few quests showed up with uninvited attachments, they moved the tables around without worrying me about the annoyances! Working with her was fun, she responded to all of my emails and eased my concerns, and spent two days helping me pick the perfect colors for the room. I loved every moment of our day. Thank you!

My husband and I were married here a couple of weeks ago. We are beyond thrilled with how everything turned out! Aubrey and the staff at the Vizcaya made every step of the planning process easy! They had great recommendations for vendors and they accommodated every request we had. The day of the wedding we only had one issue with my dress, which could have turned into a crisis but Aubrey and Liz saved the day!!!
Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue is, it's been recently remodeled, and how great the food was! We even had late night tacos which was so much fun!
All in all I would definitely recommend The Vizcaya, they're the best!

My wife Amie and I just got married at The Vizcaya a couple months ago. We were referred here by a very close friend of ours, and so we decided to look them up. Our wedding was put together in right around four weeks, and we can't speak higher of our experience with The Vizcaya and specifically our planner Aubrey. She was extremely helpful, and more importantly very warm to us and our families.

In such a short time frame we were able to put together an unforgettable, intimate wedding. My wife and I will never forget our time there, and we are very appreciative of everything they did to help us create a special wedding day.

I would recommend the venue and the team to my closest family and friends without hesitation.

Vizcaya Pavilion is a beautiful venue in downtown Sacramento. We just had our wedding here, and it was so incredibly wonderful! The staff was so great and helpful, they made us feel really special. They were there to help with every detail, which was especially appreciated since I was planning from out of town. The grounds were beautiful, full of blooming flowers, which made our photographs look spectacular. The reception was set up so beautifully, and I didn't have to worry about anything, they handled it all very professionally. I really loved working with Liz and Janae, they treated me, my husband, and all our guests like family. We loved working with them, and we loved having our wedding at the Vizcaya!

The food was AMAZING! We got so many wonderful comments for our guests about picking the best menu, but we can't take the credit! The chef at the Vizcaya is extremely talented. The servers were professional.

Overall, we were extremely happy with all of the services provided by the Vizcaya. Would highly recommend!!

Mostly, the wedding staff was very helpful and professional. Our saleswoman, Kathy, left the company, and in their scramble to get a hold of all of her clients, we didn't find out until several weeks later, and only then because we called after none of our e-mails to her were answered, and the last was returned as undeliverable. This would normally be a nerve-racking situation, but Elizabeth, who took over our day, was absolutely wonderful (better than Kathy) and worked with us as if she had been our contact the entire time. She honored all agreements we had made without batting an eye, and made herself as available as possible. Unfortunately, if we ever called and didn't get a hold of her directly, our calls were never returned. After the second time, we made sure to get her schedule instead and to call back when we knew she was there.

We did not meet Becky, the coordinator, until the day of the rehearsal (the day before the wedding). In every way you could desire, she was completely on her game and ran the show behind the scenes for us as much as she could. When the cake ran late, she coordinated with the photographer to cover up any seams in the flow. However, when it came to dealing with people other than the two of us, we received complaints that she was rude and demanding, especially regarding cleanup of the prep area in the mansion itself before the ceremony took place (ceremony was at 5:30, and we were done with the room at 4:30 and out taking pictures). Apparently, they were planning on using the room to host other potential clients, but frankly, we rented the entire venue AND hotel for the night, and I felt this was a little crass, especially since she didn't warn us beforehand.

The hotel staff was completely behind the scene; we saw maybe one person besides Jesse, the manager, the entire night. We received the same complaints about Jesse that we did about Becky (but from different people), but he was very polite to us.

The food and serving staff in the reception hall were absolutely outstanding. I know some people are nervous about hiring a caterer before they taste their food, but this place has earned every single award it can possibly lay claim to!

All in all, better than I expected. Just those two things with Becky and Jesse, and neither enough to ruin our day (fortunately, my now-husband kept both of those from me until after we left). I highly recommend them, and would only suggest to the Vizcaya that they schedule their clients to meet Becky once before the rehearsal so that any irregularities can be covered.

We had our wedding at the Vizcaya and it turned out wonderfully. We were looking for a reasonable location where we could have the wedding ceremony and reception, so that guests would not have to relocate for the reception. We had a lot of older guests, so this was perfect. The scenery is victorian and has a lot of picturesque places to take photos: the fountain, the entrance, the garden. The food was so much better than I imagined. I still get compliments on the food to this day. The only reason I give less stars for professionalism was the experience my husband had with one of the customer service representatives (who no longer works there). My husband tried to have all the things we discussed verbally specifically stated in the contract and the customer service representative was hostile to it. We were able to get what we needed, but the experience was unnecessary. Otherwise, venue was beautiful and we were able to stay the night in their guest room on the property.

Although my ceremony was not at the Vizcaya, the service provided for me and my guests at my reception can be described only in one way: World Class.

They were very professional to work with to plan my reception, and were flexible, responsive and executed flawlessly. I didn't have to stress about a thing regarding the Vizcaya on the day of my wedding.

The food at the reception was TO DIE FOR, everyone was commenting on how wonderful it was.

The servers were helpful, friendly, prompt and had impeccable manners. I can't say enough good things about them - they really went above and beyond to treat my guests like royalty.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this venue for any prospective bride. You don't want to leave your reception and the details to chance, so let the Vizcaya take care of you!

We got married at the Vizcaya just over two weeks ago. Overall, we had a good experience and we would recommend the venue to other couples looking for a wedding ceremony and reception location. The salesperson who originally helped us left ~6 weeks before our wedding and a new gal became our contact person. That made me nervous, but she honored every request and was very responsive, so we had no issues there. The venue is beautiful in pictures (slightly less so in person) and has nice character. The facility fee isn’t cheap, but you get a beautiful bridal dressing area for use before the wedding, and if you’re lucky you’ll save money on flowers because the garden in bloom is a great location for a ceremony. The food is good and there are a lot of options (chef even accommodated lactose-free, low-sodium, gluten-free with ease). They don’t provide alcohol, but they also don’t charge a cork fee so it’s a bit more effort but you can end up saving money over a typical place that provides alcohol. They provide high chairs, which is very helpful for moms with infants. They provide a wedding coordinator, and Becky is great at what she does. She is very focused and can even cover other vendors’ mistakes. She did a nice job keeping us posted about the level of alcohol that remained so we could make decisions about sending someone out to buy more if needed. The servers were nice and friendly.

Some things aren’t as nice. The chairs are old (and covering them adds up pretty quickly) and in need of repair or replacement. Parking can be an issue, even on weekends. That became a problem for us because it rained the day of our wedding, but I won’t ding Vizcaya for that because it’s not their fault it rained – it just made me realize that we should have considered the parking situation more carefully. It’s also somewhat of a challenge that you work with one person leading up to the wedding, and you don’t actually meet Becky until the rehearsal.

We had a few specific challenges:
* I think we were the first wedding to be rained out since the new person joined the team, so she wasn’t experienced in helping us navigate that process and I wasn’t sure exactly what I should be asking (because I’m not experienced in this sort of thing either, obviously). In the days leading up to our wedding, I asked questions to understand the details of the contingency plan (which I knew about but hadn’t paid much attention to given that our wedding was in June). In the end, I finally peppered her with enough questions that she passed me along to someone else, at which point I learned that we needed to make considerable changes to our defined schedule (which Vizcaya had already confirmed in writing) ~24 hours before I needed to leave for the wedding location. That was extremely stressful and undesirable, but my hope is that future brides would have more proactive service in this regard.
* We added one chair to one table 2 days before the wedding. I attached a new seating chart and received written confirmation that it was received and would be added. Halfway through the meal, I realized that something was wrong: two guests who only knew each other and the groom were sitting at different tables. At that moment, I realized that the extra chair had NOT been added, so one of the guests was forced to find an open chair at another table. To her credit, Becky agreed to make the change but we declined since the meal was half over. It was unfortunate and made the groom and me look either clueless or inconsiderate, sitting people at tables where they knew no one. This was awkward and should have been done correctly. If it could not be done correctly based on the fact that the request was made 2 days before the wedding, then I would have preferred to have simply been told that so I could have made other arrangements.
* The groom and I never got to eat our cake :( The cake ends up costing a lot of money, because the cake cutting fee is baked in to the cost and then you’re charged tax and a service charge on the whole thing. After paying all that money for a cake, we certainly wanted to enjoy it. We selected very specific flavors, so we were really looking forward to tasting it. We tasted the frosting during the cake cutting, and then we told them which layers we wanted to have served for the two of us. I don’t know exactly what happened, but at some point the servers must have cleaned up our sweetheart table. It seems like common sense that they would have boxed our pieces of cake, but that evidently didn’t happen so we never tasted our cake. That’s a real bummer that is still disappointing to us more than two weeks later.
* One of our wedding guests, a woman my husband has called “mom” for over 15 years, was terminally ill. By sheer will and defying doctors expectations, she lived long enough to attend our wedding (in a wheelchair, because she was so weak) and then passed away days later. As the reception started, she needed to leave so her son came to let us know they were leaving. We had already paid for their meals and we wanted her to feel like she was still part of the celebration even if it was back at her hotel. We asked to have 2 meals boxed up so they could take them, and the wedding coordinator told my husband that it wasn’t possible due to some policy they have to prevent litigation. I understand rules and regulations, but given the extenuating circumstances, I would have expected Vizcaya to be more accommodating (my husband told them she literally got off her deathbed to join us that day, and that didn’t seem to make any difference).
* The signage was confusing. I think it was just because of the rain, but numerous guests were confused. The sign posted out front made it look like our wedding started an hour later than the invitation suggested (the sign directing guests to the pavilion for the reception should have been changed when the Vizcaya made the call to move the ceremony indoors to the same place).

This doesn’t go into the rating, but a caution to other brides so they don’t do what I did: Don’t justify the venue’s facility fee by thinking you’ll save money on flowers. We paid the facility fee and justified that we wouldn’t need to buy any flowers for the ceremony since the garden would be in bloom. It rained throughout our ceremony and reception, so we were indoors and we didn’t have any flowers.

Everything was perfect! Kathy helped us out tremedously! She came up with some new ideas on what to serve that were not on their menu and everything tasted fabulous!! Loved the fact that I didn't have to worry about anything, not setting up or cleaning up!! We had originally planned to have the wedding outside, but because it was supposed to rain, it got moved inside. This was actually a much better outcome!! After the ceremony, we didn't have to worry about moving any chairs or anything to have room to take pictures outside. We just had a the big courtyard with plenty of room to take pictures!

Out of all the venues we checked out for our wedding, Vizcaya definitly offers the best value for a wedding day celebration. They take care of everything for you so you don't have to worry on your wedding day. Elisabeth is an amazing wedding planner and I highly recommend her and the Vizcaya staff. Everyone was nice, friendly and helped to make our day special and memorable. The only detail that was missed was that my cake was not facing the right way and I had to tell someone to turn the cake around. Other than that, everything was perfect!

Vizcaya is beautiful!!! Elisabeth is wonderful!! She was very prompt at emailing me back and believe me, I emailed her a lot, with a million questions. We had a huge room to get ready and relax and drink champagne in that day. Service during dinner was excellent. Dinner was delicious and our guests all raved! The bartender was outstanding. We loved how we were able to provide the alcohol and they provided the mixers. Becky was perfect at making sure everything ran smoothly the day of the wedding. A room is included for that night, which was so convenient after such a long day. Also, our parents and relatives stayed inside the mansion part. We couldn't be happier with how things turned out. Definitely go check it out!!

The Vizcaya was BEAUTIFUL. The staff were all very professional and ensured that our night went through without a hiccup. It was fantastic and definitely worth the cost, which was actually cheaper than a lot of other places we looked into.

Vizcaya is a beautiful place to have your wedding at. It has an outdoor garden that's great for ceremony and just naturally pretty as is. Their pavillion can sit up to 240 guests. We had 17 tables and the space was easy to work with and decorate, also very welcoming. Their chef is fantastic, we requested for a custom dish, and he made it even better than what we had in mind! We had a lot of compliments on the food from our guests. Elizabeth, the manager, is great to work with, she was there for us everytime we had a question. If not readily available, she always get back to us via phone or email. The only point I had to take out is that we had a mix up with the room key that night, which Elizabeth felt awful about the next day and offered us something else to make up for it. Despite the room incident, we still highly recommend Vizcaya for wedding in the Sacramento area. It's definitely a wonderful experience to be married at such beautiful setting. In the end, we wouldn't change a thing at all.

Vizcaya speaks for itself however the staff is so phenomenal I could go on forever. Elizabeth and Kathy helped me mold and create the day of my dreams from beginning to end and it was all done seamlessly. Becky was my wedding angel on the actual day and we couldnt have done it without her. If you have not checked out Vizcaya for your wedding... GO. It is well worth it!!

My wedding was amazing! Although I did most of the planning myself; they were extremely helpful! The wedding planner was mainly an event coordinator for that day, she did not help "plan" anything before hand but she was very efficient! I would 100% recommend Vizcaya to anyone!

The Vizcaya was the venue for my daughter's wedding. It was the most beautiful event I had ever attended. Everything was absolutely perfect - I couldn't have asked for a better venue. Aubrey, the sales manager/wedding planner was always professional and very helpful. The dinner was exceptionally delicious and all the help was so wonderful. I would definitely recommend The Vizcaya for any of your special events.
