This venue was absolutely a dream come true; our wedding day
felt magical. The gorgeous views, charming home and secluded, rustic
feel created a magical atmosphere that our guests loved. The home
owner was very understanding and a complete joy to work with! We could
not have imagined any better place to say "I Do"!

All our love,

We couldn't be happier that we chose Pacific Oaks Vineyard Estate for
for our wedding! From the first time we visited we knew it was "the place"
for our most special day. Thank you so much for being so responsive
to our questions during the planning process and for your vendor
recommendations. Five Star Catering, The Buttery and Seascape Florists
in particular were fabulous. Our wedding day was everything we
dreamed it would be.Your gardens are so stunning and the views are
breathtaking, providing a beautiful backdrop to our ceremony. We also enjoyed
the privacy we had which we couldn't find at any of the other venues we looked at.
Our guests told us our wedding was magical. For us it was our happiest day yet!
With thanks and warmest regards,

We cannot thank Judy enough! Not only is Pacific Oaks Vineyard Estate gorgeous,
our experience there was simply amazing! The beauty of the place is undeniable--
mountain vistas, ocean views, wildflowers and trees throughout the property,
a beautiful house, stunning pool house, and vineyard--all of which is hidden away in
the hills of Aptos. A dream location to get married and take photos. On top of that,
what made our experience so wonderful was Judy’s warm, welcoming nature.
Originally we had planned to get married in September, but when suddenly
we needed to move our wedding to February, a date was luckily still available and Judy graciously accommodated us. She was completely helpful and supportive in making an outdoor February wedding possible. We had the ceremony on the lawn and a tented reception on the deck, perfect for when it got cooler in the evening. Besides always being extremely prompt and polite in addressing any question or concern, she was also always friendly, supportive and enthusiastic about making it a special day for us. We were so at ease throughout the entire planning process with Judy. All of our guests were also amazed by the location had a fantastic time. We couldn't have selected a better place to make our important day incredible and memorable!

"Where to begin? I guess I can start with THANK YOU; from the first time I met
you and saw your property, my dream wedding became a reality. September 25th was
by far the most incredible day of our lives and we owe thanks to you for being such a
huge help from beginning to end! You and Pacific Oaks Vineyard will always hold
such a special place in our hearts and again, thank you, thank you, thank you!"

A Perfect Score for a Perfect Venue...
"My experience at Pacific Oaks Vineyard Estate FAR EXCEEDED my expectations and
hopes for a perfect wedding memory. The beauty of Pacific Oaks Vineyard Estate
speaks for itself, but the consideration and thought offered by Judy made my job so
easy and completely worry free - a necessity for a bride who planned a California
wedding while living on the East Coast. I needed to find a vendor that I could trust, and
I received exactly that! My instinct proved to be true - Judy responded to every email
within 24 hours and she was prepared to resolve any issue that would arise. She also
recommended several wedding vendors; I used all her recommendations (catering,
florist, officiant, etc.) and was completely satisfied with each one. From day one,
Judy exuded confidence that I would have an incredible wedding. Her energy was
contagious, which in-turn helped me to feel secure in all of my decision-making.
Throughout the whole process I genuinely felt that Judy wanted me to have a day to
remember. I was embraced by someone who wanted me to have an amazing day, as
much as I did. I cannot thank Judy enough! As for the venue itself, it will "WOW" you!
There is a piece of Pacific Oaks Vineyard Estate for everyone - gorgeous landscape,
view of the mountains and Pacific ocean, a private vineyard, front deck and back lawn
(plenty of space for guests to spread out and feel comfortable), a beautiful pool house,
stunning front entrance, and a breathtaking home. Mybridesmaids and I LOVED the
bridal suite! We enjoyed our own private space to prepare for the ceremony - laughing, dancing, snacking, and toasting in this room is one of my fondest memories.As the bride, it was wonderful to watch my guests have such a fantastic
time exploring Pacific Oaks Vineyard Estate and taking in all it has to offer. My guests
are still taking about it and a few of them are interested in renewing their vows at this
same special place. I recommend Pacific Oaks Vineyard Estate to any couple that would
like to feel the intimacy and beauty of a private California home, high above the
mountaintops. This venue makes for PERFECT photographs, especially at sunset.
Pacific Oaks Vineyard Estate is a true goldmine - simple, elegant, classy, and sweet."

The comments made by our guests made the day special:
"Where did you ever find this beautiful venue? It's incredible."
"The most beautiful wedding I've ever been to!"
"Thank you for allowing us to experience this home & vineyard!"
And my favorite:
"Kathy, it wasn't' just perfect, it was magical!"
Those were just a few. Judy, thank you for everything!
Kathy, Sept. 2010
"My husband and I were absolutely stunned when we arrived to view the property
for the first time. It had everything we wanted... A beautiful estate in the mountains
with an awesome lawn, landscaping and a view of the ocean! Our wedding was
absolutely amazing; all of our friends and family can't stop raving about the beauty of
the location. It was close to the ocean, but above the fog line, so there were no
worries about it being foggy and drippy. The entire wedding was outdoors and we had
full use of the property (vineyard, numerous decks and porches, indoor pool house and
bridal suite). There is no parking for guests on the property, so you are required to
hire a shuttle. That worried me at first, but it worked out great. Our friends loved
riding the shuttles up and down the mountain. The owners are so kind and genuine, we
felt very welcome every time we visited the property. I loved my wedding day and I
love Pacific Oaks Vineyard Estate!"

"We want you to know how much we enjoyed your wine; we shared
a bottle with the Shasta County Viticulture Association and it
received rave reviews. Again thank you for everything."
Richard, June 2010
"Your venue and the wedding was absolutely totally
perfect from the first time we met you until the end of our event.
It was fabulous, thank you so much. "
Mother of the Bride, Sept. 2010
"What a day it was! It all went by so fast, but everything about it was
absolutely perfect. I remember when I took the first tour of your property
I knew immediately that Pacific Oaks was it for me! The property has a
sense of exactly what I had wanted; I wanted people to be comfortable
but at the same time be surrounded by elegance. I have received so many
compliments about our wedding, most people say they wish they
could be married at Pacific Oaks :) Working with you and Amy was so easy,
you both are such sweethearts! Thank you, thank you, thank you Judy!
I could not have asked for more. "

venue for their wedding. It was a fun event, wasn't it ?
Everyone raved about the property, "magical" was a term I heard most often.
Thank you for everything."
