Ben & Vidya
My wife Vidya and I just had our wedding at Cottonwood Farms yesterday, and even a perfect score for the owners doesn't feel adequate. Vidya had a vision of a "modern country" theme for our day, and Cottonwood fit the bill in every way. The property is astoundingly beautiful, and you can take a short golf cart ride to the nearby hills for jaw-dropping views of the surrounding valley. Since there are onsite overnight accommodations for both sides of the bridal party, you can pay a bit extra to have the venue for the entire weekend. We took this option and it was worth every penny. Not only were we extremely comfortable, but having the extra time for setup and tear-down was greatly appreciated. Both spaces for either side of the bridal party are perfectly themed. The women have salon chairs and mirrors for getting ready, while the men can lounge at the poker table or watch Direct TV. Both suites are equipped with full kitchens, and you can enjoy your morning coffee on country-style porches before your big day. We were also treated to farm fresh eggs in the refrigerator – perfect for a wedding day breakfast! The owners were incredible throughout the entire process, and eventually came to feel like family that you would want to visit in the countryside. We had multiple challenges leading up to our wedding day, including a heavy thunderstorm the night before, as well as an emergency need for a wedding coordinator. Cottonwood Farms answered with calm flexibility and work ethic that was a sight to behold. Our day ended up being absolutely incredible. One part of our ceremony included a prayer for my wife's late father. Spirit, the property's horse, "joined" our ceremony with a resounding "neigh" when Vidya's father's name was mentioned. There were chills and laughter all around during this unforgettable moment! Simply put, you should VERY seriously consider having your wedding at Cottonwood Farms. Everything about the venue is charming. Their passion for making you feel like royalty is tangible. We loved every minute of our experience, and are already looking for excuses to visit again!
