Preservation Park Is Awesome For Your Wedding, An Eventective User from 1233 Preservation Park Way Oakland, CA 94612

I would give 10 if I could!!! Barb and the site were just amazing. Got married here 3 weeks ago and I have been looking forward to review PP b/c it was just a truly wonderful place for a wedding. It is totally the ""Diamond in the Rough"" and the unknown/people who have low expectations makes this place even better. 1. Barbara Ackerman is AMAZING to work with. Incredibly nice, but more importantly on top of her game, she went over every single detail, was very professional, yet also warm and friendly. 2. The site: immaculate flower and gardens. We had an outdoor ceremony, indoor/outdoor cocktail hour and indoor reception. I was not in love with Nile Hall where the reception was held, but with all the tables done and people inside it was beautiful with the high ceilings. The Ginn Parlor has AMAZING photo spots and is just adorable while the outdoor bandstand and fountain are are the truly beautiful part of PP. The people who work there really care about the place and you can tell. We had a May wedding and the flowers and trees were in full bloom (wisteria was amazing). It is also the perfect size, we had a little over 100 people but the place felt incredibly intimate and we had it all to our self. We rented the parking garage next store so parking was not a hassle for our guests. 4. Vendors: There is only a preferred vendor list for caterers--with price and cuisine options. We chose Blue Heron catering and couldn't have asked for better ( see my review). The rest (flowers, photo, cake, etc you could chose which made sticking to my budget WAY easier. 3. People's reactions said it all: They LOVED the site and had no idea there was anything like this in downtown Oakland!!! A few misc: This is a photographers dream, our photo's have been beautiful so far! It is right on the freeway but you REALLY cannot hear or tell that you are anywhere close. It is like there is a sound barrier around the place or something...I swear. It is moderately priced as far as wedding sites go. While Barbara is incredibly easy to work with, she is not very flexible in negotiating or times. She has her way of doing things (which comes from years of experience) which you have to follow. It is not like a hotel or some fancy schmancy place where they will cater to your every need....but that probably is not the type of person who would get married here! They are re-doing the website so hopefully this wonderful place will get more business. Honestly, I was SUPER picky about our site and Pres Park was IDEAL.
