There are no words to describe how truly grateful we are to Hacienda Sarria and the incredible staff for making our wedding day flawless and perfect. Literally nothing went wrong! We had almost all of our guests in awe of the venue and many commented on how "perfect" our wedding was. The organization and thoughtfulness is supreme and the staff was wonderful! The security was friendly and helpful, the bartenders and servers were polite and professional, and Alanna and Ally made our start and ending! Also, Jodie was so kind throughout the day and her warm smile kept me so calm! Leah, I truly appreciate you popping by to wish us luck - this was not your job and I know you did it out of the kindness in you and it meant so much to me:) Ashley, I can only imagine how incredible YOUR wedding will be because of your professionalism and hard work. You made every single moment happen with ease, which kept Dave and Me SO calm. It was so fun to see your reassuring smile throughout the day. Dave and I have been reminiscing about how incredible everything was - we are forever grateful. So...same time, same place next week?;) Emilie & Dave (& Bentley)
I have nothing but good things to say about this venue and the staff. We recently had our wedding here and we couldn't be happier. The venue was so beautiful and all of our guests are still commenting on it. Ashley was our wedding coordinator and she was amazing! She made us feel so much less stressed with her help and support.
I cannot say enough about the old world charm and romantic elegance of the Hacienda as the venue for our son & daughter-in-law's wedding in July. From the initial meeting with Claudia, our event planner, we were put at ease with her professionalism, patience, sound advice and sense of humour. She took us through a wonderful journey, set our expectations high and exceeded them on the wedding day. Our guests have been very complimentary of the venue atmosphere, the staff and the overall day. Our photographer captured all of the beauty of the architecture and uniqueness from the once in a life-time experience at the Hacienda.
We cannot say enough about this venue. My wedding was amazing. The staff was awesome, the food was amazing, and our wedding planner was unbelievable. I highly recommend this place
We held our wedding at Hacienda Sarria in April and it could not have been a more perfect day! The venue is absolutely stunning, the food is amazing and our families and guests have been raving about the evening. Everyone at the venue is incredibly warm, welcoming and helpful. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our planner Claudia. She went above and beyond every step of the way and made planning the day incredibly easy. There isn't a single thing we would change about the day which speaks volumes for the venue and everyone there. Thank you to Hacienda for helping us have one of the best days of our lives.
We just had our wedding at the Hacienda in April. Our planner, Claudia, was incredible. She helped make the planning process go smoothly, but even more importantly dealt with every small issue on the day, so that we didn't have to stress! The venue itself was gorgeous, and the staff were so helpful from the time we set up, to when we were packing everything away. They did everything they could to make it go smoothly. We can't say enough great things about the Hacienda, and highly recommend it.

Words cannot adequately describe how truly grateful I am to have had Ashley as our planner for our wedding. She went over, above and beyond to ensure that our day was magical and flawless. I could not have been happier. Even down to the lovely flowers that I received that enhanced the bridal suite, to the sweet message that was written on the chalkboard, every single detail was amazing. Ashley was so sweet and lovely. Our connection was instant and effortless. I felt as if we have been friends for years. She got to know my likes and dislikes so quickly and did everything to ensure that I had access to anything and everything my heart desired. Karl and I had the wedding of our dreams!!! All of our guests were awestruck. Everyone commented on everything. From all of the details, to the flowers, to the excellence of the staff, the friendliness of the staff, the amazing food, the reception seating (which was flawless); every, single element was simply amazing. I gotta tell you, my breath was taken away by the loveliness of the ceremony in the ballroom. It was breathtakingly beautiful. I was so happy that I was bursting with joy!! The guests nearly lost their minds when the saxophonist came out on the balcony to play as Karl and I entered the reception. I didn't even want that moment to end! Lori-Ann
Hi Claudia, Amer and I just got back from our honeymoon in the Maldives a few days ago and have finally settled back into normal routine. We want to express how pleased we were with everything at our reception. The entire process was smooth and stress free for us, especially on the day of. Thank you so much for making the entire process as easy as possible. After having so many wedding events, it was really nice to be able to truly enjoy and relax at our last event. We were pampered, taken care of and made to feel truly special by yourself and the rest of the Hacienda staff. All of our family and friends really appreciated the hospitality by the excellent service the staff provided. Thank you very much for your creativity, help and suggestions throughout this entire process. It was such a pleasure to work with you and we wish you all the best in all your endeavors. Take care, - Amer & Noreen - August, 31, 2014
