The Vineyards at Simi Valley is a beautiful venue for a wedding. The location is close to a major freeway but once you're there, you wouldn't even realize it. My wedding took place on a sunny, spring afternoon, and things couldn't have been more perfect or memorable. The staff provided beautiful, paper umbrellas for the ladies who wanted to stay out of the sun. The wedding was set in a garden against the backdrop overlooking the San Fernando Valley. There was even a waterfall that provided picture perfect moments for our wedding album. Guests were even able to wander about the garden admiring the views while the wedding party was finishing taking our photos. The staff was very friendly- rushing about making sure that our guests were comfortable. The reception was held inside one of their three banquet halls which have huge windows that provided picturesque view of the sunset. The table settings and decor were very elegant, and the staff was very attentive and efficient in coordinating the meal courses in between various entertainment. The dance floor was big enough to accommodate all of our guests while we danced the night away. My friend was so enchanted with the place and with our event that she also decided to have her wedding there! If I could think of any cons about the venue, I would have to say that it is well hidden. Some our guests told us that they drove right past the place a few times. But despite this slight inconvenience, the Vineyards is definitely one of the hidden gems in the San Fernando Valley. The Vineyards is a very popular for weddings and corporate events so make sure to book well in advance!
