I cannot thank Agave enough for what they did for me and my husband. My day was magical because of them. We have received so many compliments from how beautiful the location is to the amazing customer service they all had. First I want to thank Brandi from the bottom of our... Read More hearts for taking the role into making sure our day was perfect. The whole planning was so easy because she always gave it 100%. The day was even better because of how well and organized she had everything. I can't stress enough how much me and my husband are thankful for having her through the planning. Tawyna from Agave Brothers did our floral and they turned out so beautiful and just how I wanted them to be. Ivan oh man he defiantly had the party going from mixing English to Spanish, one genre to another genre, such a fantastic MC, we loved his work. Jessie did our cakes and let me tell you I still get guest calling me that they are dying for more. That day everyone was waiting for me to have some sort of meltdown but thankfully for Agave Estates I had the most relaxed, best day of my life. Thank you so much. :)

Agave was such a wonderful venue! Starting with the most important part: our wedding coordinator, Jessica. Jessica was very professional and a pleasure to work with. We had an excess of guests at the end and they helped me make last minute accommodations in catering and in... Read More seating. It was also very helpful that Jessica was bilingual so she could communicate with my spanish speaking family very easily. Jessica allowed for me to come visit the venue as many time as I needed and she also answered all my questions! Next, the place is absolutely stunning! My guests still rave about how beautiful it was: warm yet spacious, very unique but elegant. My favorite part about it was all the little candles they lit everywhere and also the outdoor pool gave us some really cool pictures. My guests could be inside and outside, near the dance floor or near the bar, perfect for everyone. One thing I have to mention: it is so well decorated, I barely added any additional decorations! I even did rose petals only on the tables and it looked really elegant and sweet. That being said, they have an awesome decorator who will help you enhance the room and tables as much as you may need! The food had smaller portions than what was presented at the tasting. I think the chef was trying to please us and might have over promised a few things, while not communicating with the venue, so I think in turn the portions were affected and were smaller than we expected. In the end, the food was DELICIOUS and they give you a little bit of different things (2 sides, 2 entres, bread roll) so it was still satisfying and allowed for us to dance all night without getting hungry. Along with this, the chef helped us plan out our menu and was incredibly flexible and generous by giving us a few extra appetizers! The only thing I would suggest for other brides to be cautious about would be the bartender. I never asked for her name and never really thought it would be important, but it is! I should have asked for a bartender that has worked with latin american crowds because they tend to drink more than average (but do not get beligerent.) She would not permit for husbands to get a drink for their wives (meaning, give them two drinks) or serve the same person a few times in a row (for example a husband taking a drink for himself, then taking it to the table, and then going to get another drink for his wife.) Someone even told me that if you would tip her she would not be that strict, which I guess is to be expected, but it was still unpleasant. Sadly, I received multiple complaints about her, almost everyone in my family felt comfortable enough to mention it to me, because I never had any interactions with her. I am sure she is great and I don't think that was a reflection of the venue itself at all, but I think I should have better prepared by having a conversation with them about my guests and how they expect to be served at a bar. All in all, Agave was great! The space was awesome, Jessica stayed at the wedding the whole night, the music and lights were great, the send off was beautiful and I highly recommend it to ANYONE for any event, not just a wedding! THANK YOU AGAVE AND JESSICA!
