A Few Notes from Our Guests

“We are so thankful we chose to get married at Nestldown! Getting married in my 30s, I have been to a lot of weddings and maybe I’m biased, but our wedding is my favorite that I’ve ever been too! The Redwood Backdrop is seriously stunning but also as we keep hearing from people when we told them where we were getting married, Nestldown is a ‘well-oiled machine’. Nestldown ensured our day pulled off without a hitch so  we were able to enjoy it to the fullest!

Jo Ann was our event coordinator and is such a sweet lady to ensure we maintained our timeline, yet fit in our vibe to enjoy the moment and making sure nothing felt time-pressured. All of their vendor recommendations were wonderful from the food to the band. In comparison of price, we got married February 29 (Sat, reduced season rate) and considering that the all the tables were included, we could BYOB for a small fee, Jo Ann (our Special Event Manager) was included to run the timeline, and they offer a military discount, it turned out to be pretty comparable to other places in the Bay Area! We had the best day and didn’t have to worry about any logistics. Wholeheartedly recommend!”

“Nestldown has been perceived as a place to have a wedding.. well of course it is, but it is much more than that, it is a fantastic place to have a company event. We had our holiday party in December on a rainy Friday night and what a spectacular experience. The ambiance of the “Barn” felt warm, cozy, homey, and beautiful all at the same time. There is a patio in the back complete with heaters where we could grab a drink and enjoy the evening. The holiday decorations provided by the venue were perfect, sweet, glowy, and festive. The staff couldn’t have been more attentive, going so far as to shuttle our employees from the Barn to the parking lot because of the rain. We’re considering having an afternoon event in the summer so we can experience the beauty the land has to offer during the day – Nestldown is truly a hidden gem…oh wait, maybe I shouldn’t be sharing… Enjoy!!”

“Nestldown was the first site my husband and I visited on our quest to book a venue. At first, we were slightly turned off by the price, as it is expensive, but we couldn’t stop comparing every other venue to Nestldown and knew it as our dream location. Our entire experience with Nestldown was seamless. The photos of the venue do not do it justice, this place is magical. But the staff at Nestldown is what sets this place apart from the rest. They are incredibly organized, professional, and run that place like a well-oiled machine. Our SEM, Diana, is hands down THE BEST. Thank you Diana for making our day beyond perfect, smooth, and stress free. I know that the price tag might be a little bit scary, but it is worth every single penny. I cannot stress this enough, it was worth every single dime we shelled out to have our wedding at Nestldown. We booked the venue 20 months in advance and the entire planning process was so easy thanks to how tight of a ship Diana runs. As for day of execution, I have zero complaints and only wonderful things to say. Diana took care of absolutely everything so that as the bride, I could actually be present on our big day. Our entire wedding party felt at ease and nothing felt like a chore. I didn’t feel rushed a single moment the entire day and was able to be entirely present as Diana and her team took care of everything. There was only one hiccup the entire day (a guest brought an uninvited plus 1) and the Nestldown team accommodated everything immediately without fuss or issue. I am beyond grateful for the Nestldown team for making our day absolutely perfect.”

“My now husband and I had the pleasure of a “minimony” at Nestldown a bit ago and it was everything we could have hoped for, if not more! Jo Ann was my main point of contact and was so knowledgeable and helpful, acting like a wedding coordinator, event planner and even friend during very uncertain and stressful times. From our 1st in-person encounter, where we brought our kids to the tour, Jo Ann dedicated so much time to our family providing great ideas and made our kids feel so special – the grounds are like a fairytale wonderland complete with princess cottage, horses, waterfalls, ponds, open fields, and a redwood chapel that was so magnificent it needed no additional décor. Our big little day went smoother than even this OCD girl could have planned for – between the golf carts, Samantha (another amazing staff member who went above and beyond for my family) and Jo Ann, we maximized every minute squeezing in a family-blending ceremony, 1st dance, cake-cutting, toast and pictures all over the pristine grounds. I truly did not want to leave and already am counting down until I can visit again.
I highly recommend this amazing venue for anyone seeking a memorable, care-free day. Thank you Nestldown!!! Excited to hopefully return annually for family pictures 😉

“Nestldown is the most magical and amazing venue. Our SEM Jenny made everything so smooth and on the day of we didn’t have to think about anything once we arrived at there. Our wedding was everything we could have asked for: beautiful, whimsical, and FUN! No pictures can do this place justice, you just have to go. We can’t wait to go back on our first anniversary!”

“I am so happy We chose Nestldown for our wedding venue!! And I’m also so glad that We didn’t have to change our wedding date! The staff was so wonderful about giving us options in order to stay within county guidelines during the pandemic. It was an emotional ride not knowing what was going to happen. I felt nothing but support from the family ( Specifically Diana) as well as my special events manager, Marissa, and I can’t forget to mention Jo Ann! Everyone there is so friendly and are truly there to make your day special. I was in contact with Marissa and Diana the entire pandemic. They kept us updated on what options they were allowed to host, options to change your event, or the option to postpone altogether. Even though we had to dramatically change our original plans, we still got to say I do beneath their beautiful redwoods. I saw some posts on here shaming the family for not giving deposits back, however this IS a family owned business that has to stay alive too. I felt their contract was extremely thorough and they even made compromises for couples in 2020. ( which they didn’t have to do) . I couldn’t have been happier with our big day, and am truly overwhelmed by the wonderful support I received from the staff and family of this venue. These are scary and new times for everyone, I felt they handled the situation with poise and etiquette. Thank you for a beautiful wedding!!”
