Keep reading to see what some of our friends and vendors have to say about working with Maravilla Gardens.

"We have a very long list of reasons that we love Maravilla and think that it is a wonderfully unique venue, but we will keep it to our top few. First and foremost, they maintain their venue like no other venue that we have ever been to. On any given day, you can stop by and you will probably see Rob and others working to keep Maravilla as perfect as they can. You just don't get that at most other outdoor venues. At most other outdoor venues, the first wedding of the season doesn't look much like the last wedding of the season because the grass is dying, a lot of the plants are trampled, there's bits of trash in the bushes, there's stains on the pathways, etc. At Maravilla, every wedding, all season long, is gorgeous. You can really see the pride that they have in their venue, and that is really unique." Read the full testimonial here.

"Maravilla Gardens feels like home! Having your wedding at this venue feels like being in the backyard of your childhood home with amazing staff making your wedding dreams come true. Jen and her team of site coordinators are consistently incredible at coordinating events, and Command Performance Catering always delivers food we talk about for weeks after the wedding! Maravilla has a flow to their venue that is hard to come by. There is space designated for each portion of the day and the flow from one area to another is not only perfect for pictures, but is well-maintained and pleasant for the guests to enjoy as well. You want to be able to trust the staff and space at your wedding venue, and Maravilla Gardens nails that every time we are there."

"Maravilla is, hands down, one of the top venues in Southern California. You will absolutely be amazed by the stunning and immaculate gardens and grounds. Your stress levels will be so low knowing that things will be handled by the professional staff, coordinators and caterer who handle everything, from packing your gifts away to lighting the sparklers for your send off! Your job is to show up, get married, eat and party!  And on a side note: Command Performance Catering is the best caterer in the land. The staff is so helpful and positive, and their food is to die for! All weddings run so smoothly at Maravilla that it allows me to be as creative as I can be. I am able to shoot by a barn, in the gardens, by the fences, on a swing, in the fields…no other venue offers that!"

"Maravilla Gardens is a wonderful outdoor wedding venue with beautiful landscaping and gorgeous rolling hills and fields.  The venue is a complete outdoor space with fun rental options and amazing staff.  It has everything you need for a perfect wedding!"

"One thing that sets Maravilla apart is their reception lighting built in. We educate all our couples about the need for lighting their outdoor reception because we are all natural light shooters.  But we don't have to do that when we meet with Maravilla couples because of the exceptional lighting built into the space."
