Take the stress out of planning a wedding, and let us take care of (most of) the work for you!
We invite you to visit our new venue, Little Hills, in San Ramon. With 25 acres of serene and secluded natural space encompassed by rolling hills, Little Hills by Palmdale Estates Events is a full service wedding and event venue in a picture perfect outdoor setting that you and your guests will remember for years to come.
I had the absolute best experience holding our wedding at Ardenwood and I'm so glad we chose this venue!
The venue itself is unmatched in beauty and charm. It's a true gem. The historic Patterson house, the plants and flowers, the gazebo, the large trees, the peacocks... There is no comparison for it. It's also so conveniently located, right off the freeway.
We had the best time working with the staff and organizers. They are the best in the business! Claire, Stephanie, and Lindsey were so knowledgeable, professional, and fun to be around. I miss working with them now that the wedding is over! Having them with us on the day of the wedding took all of my stress away. They solved all the last minute problems that arose, kept us on schedule, and checked in on us constantly. I had a very specific vision for the wedding of "secret enchanted garden" and they completely bought into and helped my vision come to life.
They also helped add structure to the wedding planning process. They gave us lots of information to help guide us, connected us to the best vendors, and answered all of my many questions in a timely manner.
If I had to plan my wedding over again, I wouldn't change a thing. If you're planning a wedding do yourself a favor and add Ardenwood to the list is venues you're touring. You won't regret it!!

100/10 recommend. :) The absolute best venue and team out there!!
We had our wedding in June and I cannot put into words just how incredible working with this venue has been. Not only is Ardenwood Historic Farms gorgeous and historic, it has the absolute best team of people managing every step of the process. Claire, Stephanie, and Lindsey were the utmost professionals from A to Z. My partner and I really wanted a farm/barn theme and visited a lot of different venues. When Ardenwood popped up in the search, we drove over and immediately fell in love as soon as we entered the parking lot.
The team really made themselves available for any questions or concerns that popped up throughout the process. Claire helped us secure all of the major details ahead of time and we worked with Stephanie as the day-of coordinator. We ended up renting a few of their in house items since they fit our vision so well! The rehearsal was so organized. I was blown away with the instruction and as a dancer I very much appreciated the attention to detail and formation (It really translates in the photos!). The in house vendors that Ardenwood works with are all top quality professionals. We loved every vendor we hired from their list
Additionally, we loved the split between the ceremony and reception site. The stunning grounds and surrounding farms were so beautiful for roaming. Not to mention, it is in such a convenient and central location for our Bay Area friends and friends traveling from out of state (SFO is not too far!).
I can write so much more but this is just a glimpse of the magic of this venue.
