Cathleen +DJ meet in in college in Maine and recently moved to San Jose together. Their extensive venue hunt included Boston, Maine, and Florida, where their friends and family live. When they saw Holman Ranch, it was the venue they’d been picturing without knowing it existed. They knew they wanted to share their new home and this beautiful setting with their loved ones.

Their guest list included 70 family members and close friends; and the intimacy of Holman Ranch provided the close-knit atmosphere they’d hoped for. After sharing a gorgeous dinner of seasonal California cuisine, the bride's 93-year-old Papi gave a deadpan toast that had the crowd in stitches. This, followed by the bride and groom’s dance moves complied from YouTube videos of middle school ballroom classes, had everyone falling head over heels.

Ceremony with a View | Vine Hill House Wedding

A+J_Vine Hill House_Buena Lane Photography_052519_ER_467.jpg

Ally and Joe may have gone to high school prom together, but it wasn’t until years later that they reacquainted in a bar in San Francisco and quickly fell back in love.

When they began planning their wedding, they thought they’d found their venue on the Central Coast. That was until they saw the Vine Hill House. As they walked up to the ceremony site, tucked above the lawn in a redwood grove overlooking the vineyards, they both had tears in their eyes. They knew it couldn’t be anywhere else.

They wanted to throw a great party for their friends and family in this beautiful space. After a heartwarming first look, the rest of the day was as relaxed and fun as they could have imagined. After dinner with a view, everyone moved up to the grove for dancing and whiskey tasting!

Romantic Multicultural Celebration at Hidden Villa + Stanford Memorial Church

052519_B+S_Hidden Villa Wedding_Buena Lane Photography_052519_1099CY.jpg

When Bianca and Sam were thinking about their wedding, they wanted to plan an event that was personal to them and felt fun, inclusive, and relaxing. Following a traditional ceremony at Stanford Memorial Church, the pair planned a reception at Hidden Villa filled with personal and meaningful performances honoring their Mexican and Filipino heritage. They served carnitas, tepache, and halo-halo and hired a mariachi band for dinner entertainment. Bianca performed with her college Polynesian dance group and Sam with his band, as well as a special song dedicated to Bianca’s late father. Even with a full guest list, their celebration felt romantic, meaningful, and intimate.
