  • From the second we walked onto the grounds of this establishment we knew this was the place to say our "I Do's". Hidden away in it's own little oasis is this beautiful old white school house and SO much greenery you feel like you're in a secret garden. The grooms suite has been transformed into a 1920s-Gatsby style speakeasy and is absolutely incredible, while the bridal suite is INSIDE the old white schoolhouse. It looks like something straight out of a fairytale. Every piece of this property is absolutely stunning and we cannot WAIT to get married here! The staff is so friendly and accommodating; our tour guide (Jill, I believe?) was adorable and super nice listening to every concern or question we had.

  • We did a tour of Twin Oaks and Green Gables (both owned by Trademark Venues). The moment we started the tour, we felt like the staff knew what they were doing. We felt at ease with the process and stunned by the beauty of both venues. We ended up choosing Green Gables for its beautiful ceremony grounds under the big pepper tree. We also felt it was a fair price for what they offered. Definitely recommend!

  • Jay and I were married at Green Gables Estate San Marcos, CA on August 16, 2019. I don’t even know where to begin – EVERYTHING about this venue, it’s atmosphere, the service, the food and coordination team was literally ON POINT. Green Gables made our dream wedding a reality, and we would recommend them a million times over. It is difficult to find a location that offers it all – from 10.5 private and uninterrupted hours with your friends and family, space to get ready, a beautiful ceremony location, full event set-up, delicious food and a grand reception area that will WOW your guests. It is as if you’ve entered your own little fairytale while on property. It will take your breath away. The Green Gables staff – I don’t even have the words. Hannah Tortosa, our wedding coordinator was beyond amazing. She became a sister to me through the process. She and the rest of the staff bent over backwards to ensure we had the day that we always dreamed of. Every detail was... Read more

  • My husband and I must have visited at least 20 venues over a 6 week period - Green Gables was the first one we looked at (and then subconsciously compared the others to) and we ultimately chose this location because it was beautiful, had everything we wanted, and they made everything so effortless and easy. Michelle set everything up for us and answered our many many questions, and Petar was a Godsend as a coordinator. He was quick to respond to messages, eased our concerns and let me wait until nearly the last minute to make final decisions, because it ended up raining (really hard) on our wedding day. We decided approximately 1.5 hours before the ceremony to move the entire wedding inside the reception tent (for 150 people), but they pulled off the best possible backup plan we could have hoped for, and we had one of the most unique San Diego weddings because of it! The food was also fantastic - our guests raved about all of the delicious options and ease of service with the food s... Read more

  • This place is amazing! Michelle, our consultant was awesome. She didn't sugar coat or try to push us into choosing their venue. She was very nice and because of all that, that's why we chose them!

  • What can I say about this beautiful, vintage, hidden away spot, it is absolutely amazing! I knew from the moment I stepped on the grounds that this would be the fairytale place to get married. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful, Melissa our day of and really throughout the year coordinator was just simply amazing and professional. If you are looking for an outside wonderland with twinkle lights Green Gables is the spot. We can’t say enough about how wonderful this place is and how awesome the workers are, it truly was a magical day for us. Thank you again for making our special day extra special. Thank you, The newly weds Michelle & Jonathan Glass

  • This is hands down one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen!! Everything about it makes me smile from the venue, to the decor, and the people working there! I am not the wedding planning type, the thought of buying and creating centerpieces is NOT my idea of fun. Green Gables has several centerpieces to pick from that are included in your package or you can feel free to bring your own or add to them in anyway you would like. I can't wait to spend my wedding day getting ready in the vintage school house (with ac) and all the scenery will make amazing photos!

  • From the moment my fiance and I stepped foot at Green Gables, we knew it was the perfect place for us to get married. It has an unparalleled ambiance that I didn't find at any other venue. The staff greeted us with open arms and have been extremely helpful in the process thus far. I instantly felt comfortable and at home and cannot wait to marry my best friend at this gorgeous venue!

  • To start, I’m in love with this venue. Even though I’m already married, I sometimes stop by just to walk around because it is so dang beautiful! From the start, the staff was so professional. The planning process took away the inevitable stress of planning a wedding because they have such an efficient system. This is mostly because they are all inclusive, they provide a planner that you have 3 meetings with and can call/email with immediate responses. This venue is so incredibly beautiful I thought about not even writing a review because I didn’t want anyone else to have it! (I’m selfish) But in reality I’m writing this because the staff at this historic school house made for the most memorable day of my life…my friends and family still talk about it! we danced and danced all night and the food is so good you'll think you're at a 5-star restaurant! The only quam I have with this enchanting venue is that I could only get married here once! Thank you Green Gables staff for yo... Read more

  • There were some last minute material changes to the outside greenery, florals, and decor made without communicating to us. They also sent out a email saying the switch will be removed. Apparently they got lots of complaints and said the swing would stay, after all. But I do find it funny that they planned on removing the swing without gauging the clients first. Additionally, our first invoice was addressed to the wrong people (Elizabeth and Richard instead of Elizabeth and Robert). Small mistake but huge deal when we’re spending tens of thousands of dollars on a wedding. However, the rest of the venue was magical. The food, the set up, the bridal and groom suites!

  • I would like to start by saying we had the most magical wedding day we could have asked for at Green Gables! A big part of the reason we chose GG is because of the idyllic grounds. My (now) husband and I are not big beach people nor do we like downtown, so we were looking for a place that was green and beautiful and GG was perfect. We also really appreciated that they had nice get ready rooms for both the bride and the groom as many places had nothing (or basically nothing) for the groom. We also really liked that the venue included a good number of the rental items (ceremony chairs, reception chairs, tables, linens, food, etc.), so it limited the number of vendors you needed to coordinate with and rolled all the cost into one. Additionally, we had wedding planners to help pick decor and answer any questions we may have along the way and they were all super communicative about the process. The venue also did a good number of upgrades to the site between when we booked in December of... Read more

  • We live abroad and were planning our wedding from another country. The staff at Green Gables made our wedding planning an absolute breeze. They were professional, had great communication skills and were super knowledgeable and helpful. If you're looking for a "all-in-one" venue, this is definitely the place for you. I also wanted to give a special shout out to Hannah, our coordinator from Green Gables. She was PHENOMENAL. I felt so at ease with her around. She made sure every little detail was covered before the wedding chaos started and helped throughout the entire event. Thanks for being the best Hannah!

  • It is a little pricey of a venue but definitely worth it. We paid for 150 guests. The food was amazing. They have little events leading up to your date where you get to meet other couples, drink, eat Hors d’oeuvres, play games, listen to a great DJ, and get some ideas for your wedding. Everybody is very professional. Account for the cost of security, tips, vendor meals, and anything extra you would like to rent from them. The liquor license costs quite a bit as well and you have to provide the alcohol. Venue is gorgeous and your guests will appreciate it. I had so many people come up to my husband and I claiming this was the best wedding and prettiest venue they’ve ever seen. I would suggest making sure you know your guest count for sure before you sign a contract because you can’t get a reduced rate for less guests once you sign it. Hannah was our coordinator and she was amazing.

  • My husband and I just recently got married at Green Gables Wedding Estate and it was the day of our dreams. This venue has it all it's beautiful, charming, rustic, and vintage and it was the perfect backdrop for our special day. It offers everything from the venue, to beautiful rustic furniture and props, to great in house catering. They also let you provide your own booze which saves $$$. I am from Los Angeles and was certain I would get married there, but as soon as I walked into Green Gables I knew we had to get married their, and it was worth the small drive to San Marcos. Our planner through it all was the AMAZING Hannah, I knew from the minute we met that we would get along. Hannah is not only organized and an expert of all things Green Gables, but she is also hilarious and fun, and we truly enjoyed spending our time leading up to the wedding and most importantly our wedding day with her. She was there from day one til the actual day making sure that our day went off as ... Read more
