We've been members for about 20 years, and have attended many beautiful weddings at Spanish Hills....but when it came our turn for our son's wedding, an evening event wasn't going to work out for them....so they selected a Saturday morning, with reception ending at 3:30 p.m. From moment one, we were treated as if we were spending a huge amount of money. We did the diligent search through other vendors and it all came back to Spanish Hills. Our kids' wedding was beautiful...the staff, Tania, Bridget, Jason, Steve, Mike, Patty, were all very professional and yet warm and fuzzy, soothing every bit of anxiety we had. They were flexible, creative and so attentive. Tania worked with us throughout the whole process, including our rehearsal dinner, set up beatifully out on the balcony...it was just spectacular. We were given names of vendors, to use or not to use, and we chose many of our own vendors due to the time of day, budget, etc. and I have to say that everyone of them were welcome at Spanish Hills and given every thing that they needed to make their job perfect for our kids' day.

We used Luis Castro as our DJ....an incredible young man who changed from his very professional business casual clothes into a very sleek black suit, perfect for our wedding....our cake vendor was Mai from LivLee Bakery in Thousand Oaks, a very small bakery, with a vision to make our cake come to life! Our videographer was Jordan Sweeney, sweetest guy around...Robin Swanson was our photographer and had the photo booth....it all came together beautifully.

We had guests from 6 states, and from Australia, all are raving over the food from the rehearsal dinner, to the cocktail hour following the wedding to the actual wedding and are still asking about the cake! Now that is alot of food and alot of opportunities to not come through but Spanish Hills lived up to their reputation and our event was a huge success.

The ability to create your menu for any event was so much fun. Tania deserves a huge hug for working so closely with us....

When all is said and done, we had added Chivarri chairs, and Satin Table Cloths, brought in our centerpeices, place cards, and votives and the place looked like it was set for a magazine shoot. No one even noticed that it was full on daylight while our party was going on....its just a beautiful venue and we are so happy we chose this for our special couple!

There is no way to express how our small budget wedding looked like a $50,000 affair! Trust me, go there, and start dreaming. If you have selected another place, use SH for their catering, your food will be delicious and your guests will be raving over your choices.

Most of all, if you select Spanish Hills, you will have beautiful grounds for your pictures, the music you select just waves throughout the setting, the cocktail terrace and passed trays and fruit filled water jars will just be the special touch you wanted for your special day.

Tell Tania that Donna sent you there.....she'll take good care of you! All of them will Thank you Spanish Hills for treating our kids like they were your one and only event! We will never forget how nice it was to show up and know that it was all done to perfection.

Hugs to everyone.
