They said it not us! …
What a wonderful place for a wedding! The art deco decor was warm and inviting
We did a lot of research to find the right site for our wedding, and we were very happy with the Hotel DeAnza. Specifically, Laura (the HDA wedding coordinator) was a phenomenal support on wedding day. She did exactly what we asked, and made sure everything ran smoothly without bothering us with details on wedding day: she just made it happen. She let us take the lead on what we wanted, but filled in with her suggestions and experience when asked. Laura took good care of us to make sure we had exactly the wedding day we wanted. I did not understand the importance of having the right coordinator until after the wedding went so well–a word to the wise: consider this very seriously when deciding on a location.
The price for the site was good compared to the others we considered. The food was excellent- we are still getting compliments on it months later. We chose a dessert bar rather than a cake, and it was a hit! (I would kill to get my hands on more of the individual pumpkin cheesecakes.) The Palm Court Terrace is a gorgeous space that requires very little decoration. The color palette there is unlike many wedding sites- most go neutral to try to accommodate any wedding colors. In contrast, the terrace’s rich terracotta walls and sapphire blue tiles added a luxurious feel to our photos. We are so so happy with our decision to have out wedding at the hotel, and look forward to celebrating anniversaries in their restaurant, La Pastaia.
I attended a wedding (Ceremony & Reception) at the Hotel De Anza this weekend … AWESOME! The food was excellent (kitchen is the restaurant, not just some random hotel caterer), they coordinated things really well (ceremony in one space, then moved to the bar for great appetizers, then back to the patio space for the dinner and dancing).
Best of all, when it got dark outside, the patio is lit so romantically with star lights from the ceiling and soft lighting … felt like we were in Tuscany.
In a word – Fantastic!
