Truly Amazing

"I credit the Quail Lodge staff with how well my reception went. Everything flowed so seamlessly and all of my guests commented on how amazing my wedding was. The staff were so professional and kind. The venue is also beautiful. The layout is perfect with outdoor patio and indoor seating for dinner. Lastly, working with Fallon was a dream. She knew exactly my vibe as a bride and was so easy to work with. Both her and the captain/main lead that night were amazing and fantastic. Anyone who asks me, I tell them I had the most amazing wedding."

"We used Quail for both our ceremony & reception and couldn't be happier. The venue, food, service, and on-site event coordinator, Audrey, were perfect. Audrey worked with us from start to finish to keep us on track and get us everything we needed. The outdoor Quail Meadows ceremony site is pristine, secluded, and tranquil. The first time I saw the meadows, I knew that was where I was going to get married. The reception area down the road in the clubhouse was a perfect size for our group of approximately 100. Gorgeous windows on three sides; great restaurant quality food; and really the whole top floor of the clubhouse to ourselves. The outside veranda was perfect for cocktail hour. I really felt like we got our money's worth at Quail and would recommend it to anyone who wants a California-style wedding."

"I am obviously biased, but this place was amazing! Planning a wedding is nerve wracking and you hope you made the right choice, but after our wedding was over without a doubt we picked the right place! The process was effortless with their staff and they are very professional. The food was amazing, all organic and farm to table style which is awesome! The place is beautiful, from the ceremony site to the reception site all of our guests still talk about how gorgeous it is there. And relaxing, there is a peaceful feeling throughout all of their grounds. Everything was perfect and they went above and beyond to help accommodate our budget and thoughts for our special day!"
