  • Choosing Padua Hills as a venue and catering for our wedding, was one decision that had the greatest impact at our event. The venue was breathtaking, the food was delicious, and the staff was very professional. Everything went perfectly well! If you enjoy great food, you will love the food at Padua Hills. You will not be disappointed! The Day-of Coordinator ensure that all those small details got carried out by working alongside with all our vendors. She made sure everything went smooth. The venue was open to new ideas, and along side with our florist @memos_florist and entertainment express, our wedding was absolutely stunning.

  • This venue was so beautiful! I knew from the beginning that I wanted to have my wedding here. When you book the venue, you are the only event of the day, which makes it that much more special. The outside scenery is breathtaking, and the interior is very charming. The food is also the best! My guests all raved about it! From the very beginning, the whole team at Padua was great in helping plan the wedding to make it the best day ever! They all helped to make sure everything was planned how I liked. They are serious experts. Also, on the day of, Tammy was the best coordinator. She made sure everything was taken care of so that I could enjoy the day. Thank you Tammy! Also, there were two other people that day (sorry I can't remember their names!), but they made sure I had a drink or whatever throughout the night, which I thought was a really nice thing to have on your wedding night. So, choosing Padua Hills for my wedding was seriously the best choice I could have ma... Read more

  • This venue is just amazing. Breathtaking views, a beautiful atmosphere, and awesome food. So many people have said it’s the most beautiful wedding they have attended. As for the details... they kind of handle it all... we had a few missing boutonnières and Tammy whipped them up in a quickness, the food is just amazing (imagine a steak the size of your head), they make sure you and the groom are taken care of, and really handle all the tiny little details so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

  • Magical! That is the best description for Padua Hills. It was so amazing, the food is the best I ever had at a wedding, and I promise I am not being biased. They made our day so so special. You really don't need a wedding planner, they have your back. Save that money for more flowers, because really they will take care of you from the moment you decide to go with them. My guests loved the place, and couldn't stop talking about it. The best is that they provided us with so much support that we really didn't have have to utilized that many outside vendors. LOVE THEM!

  • Everyone warned my wife and I about the wedding day. "Things will go wrong, just don't worry about it", "Just be prepared and take on everything with a smile", "It's gonna be mayhem". I printed out multiple schedules on where we had to be and when, and we passed them out amongst the wedding party. We was prepared for anything. The entire night we were waiting for this inevitable destructive event. And guess what. Nothing... Nothing happened. Everything went smoothly it was almost scary. The team at Padua Hills and entertainment express did a phenomenal job. They knew where to find us, they knew where we had to be, and most importantly, they did it with a smile. The food was amazing, they took care of the snack bar, they made sure every one of our guests was taken care of. Still days after the wedding we're receiving compliments on how perfect it was. It was truly a perfect evening. Amazing Padua. Simply, amazing. Thank you for making our special day a night to remem... Read more

  • My husband and I got married at Padua Hills Theatre in May of 2017. We were so thrilled with the staff's constant communication with us to make sure every little detail was in place. The staff at Padua Hills was so hard working and easily adjusted to any little change we made during the wedding planning process. During our planning meeting, we discussed every tiny detail, which made me feel like we were definitely in great hands!! Living out of state, email was my main source of contact with them so I was a little bit nervous about things like the cake design turning out just how I wanted. But when it came down to the wedding day, it was a literal dream come true. Please book them!!

  • EXCELLENT service! The staff at Padua are the best! They are a one stop one of kind shop that made my wedding planning stress free and a breeze. The food is AMAZING, by far one of the best meals I have ever had. I wish they had a restaurant so I can eat it when ever I want. The staff is extremely helpful and professional. My friends and family are still raving about my wedding!!

  • The venue itself is AMAZING! If you want a fairytale-type wedding, then this is the place for you. My only complaint has to do with the people who run the place. The wedding planners are great, but the owners seem like they've been doing this a little too long, and any request you have is the biggest inconvenience ever... But they did give us a great deal, and my wedding was perfect, so I'd still recommend it!

  • Such a beautiful location, I am so, so happy we had our wedding here! Staff: Very attentive and professional. They got the job done and paid attention to every detail. They promptly responded to emails and helped us so much. Our day-of coordinator was also fabulous Food: Great food, we had the Italian buffet and were very happy with it. You do have to use their caterers, though Location: PERFECT, so gorgeous, and not too hot even on a hot summer day The only drawbacks we found to this place was that the wedding cake was not very good, and we had a negative experience with one of the staff members. During the planning meeting, we met with the owner's wife (not sure of her name). She was very attentive to all of our changes, but it felt at times as if she were mocking my husband and I. When we would think about the questions she'd ask us before giving an answer, she was very disrespectful towards us. Really strange, and the rest of our encounters with her were much better.

  • We had our wedding at Padua Hills Theatre on 3/19/17 and everything went perfectly! Our timeline went smoothly, the setup was flawless and the food was excellent! Costs do need to be considered because this place isn't cheap but we both definitely do not regret choosing Padua over the other venues we had looked at. We were very happy with all the planning and preparation, communication was excellent, and the entire wedding day went exactly as planned. Thanks so much!

  • My husband and I spent several months going through vendors across Southern California. After dropping two vendors, we heard about Padua and visited immediately. As soon as we stepped onto the property, we were in love. The grounds are stunning, romantic and unforgettable. It is a great deal for everything that it includes and it is worth every penny. The people we worked with were kind, professional and on top of their game. The only hiccup we encountered was a little confusion about the meals and who ordered which option, but that was fixed quickly and everyone loved the food. Every moment at Padua was magical (including a visit by a black bear later in the evening) and I would highly recommend this venue!

  • This venue is absolutely gorgeous inside and out and that is why we booked it here! The staff was friendly and for the most part flexible with our needs and wants. When we first booked and signed our contract they mentioned that if we wanted to change anything we could like swap sit down to buffet or add a couple deserts instead of have cocktail hour as long as the minimum price in the contract was met. We were happy about this as we were not set on having cocktail hour but when we asked about changing things they said we couldn't do that and if we wanted to the end result would have been us losing out on $800 we had already paid. Also you are paying to rent the venue for 6 hours (i.e 4-10) thinking you get music until 10pm but nope they end the music 30 minutes early to account for clean up which I think is ridiculous. The venue should allow you 30 minutes after your contracted time to clean like they allow you time before to set up. I was really disappointed with that and if you want... Read more

  • By far the most stunningly beautiful venue we looked at. You have the entire property to plan where you want the night's events to occur. Food was delicious! Many guests said it was the best wedding steak they ever had! Everyone we worked with was always very friendly and accommodating. However, there were a couple things that rubbed us the wrong way. First, they were not very forthcoming about tips not being included in the total catering/venue balance. How our final balance was described to us in the beginning was that it included all taxes, fees, and tips. But three months before, they offhandedly mentioned that gratuity for the bar and kitchen/wait staff provided by the venue was not included. Secondly, the venue comes with wedding planning services, but other than a few specified meetings, I never felt as though I had someone helping to guide us through the process. I always had to e-mail them with questions. And when they responded, they not only gave me all of these r... Read more
