Our San Jose Wedding Catering Team’s Favorite Venues for the Perfect Wedding
If you’re looking for a Bay Area wedding venue, the San Jose area’s offerings are tough to beat. This article highlights five of the area’s best venues for celebrating your special day.
Hakone Estate and Gardens
Among San Jose wedding venues, Hakone Estate and Gardens stands out for being a particularly peaceful option. Inspired by Japanese influences, the location features a koi pond and a waterfall. Two locations for weddings are available here: the Wisteria Pavilion, which is ideal for smaller ceremonies, and the area near the koi pond, which is typically used for larger events. Another advantage to choosing this venue is our experience with event and wedding catering there.
Saratoga Springs is notable because of its intimate connection with nature. The venue is quite scenic, sporting views of fields, hills, water, and wooded areas. One prominent, attractive feature of Saratoga Springs is Cathedral Grove, a forested hideaway that can accommodate up to 150 people. Saratoga Springs also boasts some amazing photo opportunities thanks to its scenic setting; for example, in Redwood Grove, a pair of creeks unite—just like a newly married couple on their wedding day. When it comes to wedding catering, this venue provides in-house options; however, you can also hire and bring your own.
Regale Winery and Vineyards
For a taste of vintage Italy and France, look no further than Regale Winery and Vineyards. The venue provides many amazing photo opportunities owing to its European influences. It features Italian artwork, multiple fireplaces, and a gorgeous outdoor space along with bocce ball courts and a pizza oven. Regale’s website advises that people interested in booking the venue do so early, as slots are limited.
Triton Museum of Art
This single-level contemporary museum features four art galleries, stunning curved glass walls and a sculpture garden, making this the perfect Santa Clara venue for an elegant reception. Their 2-story historical house is the perfect setting for getting ready to tie the knot. The canopy of redwoods is a gorgeous backdrop for vowel exchanges, followed by cocktails and lawn games in the sculpture garden.
Historic Adobe Building
The Historic Adobe Building offers a picturesque setting for your once in a lifetime celebration. Located on the edge of Downtown Mountain View, the Adobe House is recognized for its Spanish architecture and rustic charm, balanced with modern amenities. Their outdoor patio and lawn area boasts lush landscaping and a beautiful decorative fountain; it’s a picture perfect spot to hold a romantic outdoor ceremony or a charming lawn reception. This location is a gorgeous wedding venue, able to accommodate up to 100 guests.
