10 The Sesnon House at Cabrillo College Reviews
Married on 07/28/2018
Hospitality at it's finest!
We had the best wedding ever July 28, 2018! I would like to thank Chrissy, Rosie, Sue, and the entire, wonderful staff for making my big day a dream come true. Quick overview of our situation: We got ... Read more got engaged in February and my fiance wanted to get married "before football season in the fall." Looking back, I was overwhelmed and massively anxious.. until I stumbled upon Sesnon House on Yelp. I'm not a person who loves to get involved in details and generally assume professionals in the space have way more context and information on throwing a wedding party than I do. In the case of Sesnon House, this was more than accurate -- and in addition, I have to say that the level of integrity and quality that the staff put into planning our event was beyond spectacular. I didn't have time to make every decision necessary to make the event work, so I basically delegated decision making about the linens, sourcing the DJ, alcohol decisions to the staff. To make things more exciting, our original forecast of 100 guests exploded to 150+ in the weeks leading up to the wedding. The few things I did meticulously plan (ceremony logistics, food planning, etc) quickly had to be rearranged, but Chrissy and Sue accommodated these changes without a bat of an eye and a single one hour session. Chrissy & Sue are super experienced so they are able to condense the planning of the event to the micro level with about an hour of thoughtfully presented questions. Furthermore, the beauty of venue and scalability of operation of this place is unmatched. It's Santa Cruz charm at its finest, with the most enthusiastic staff who really put their all into making the day perfect. Our wedding was great, but what really put it over the top was the picture perfect weather that brought the fantastical aspect of "California living" into clear focus for our guests. The food was excellent, and the vibe of the day was so joyful, wonderful, and magical. I know that that kind of operational perfection is not a coincidence -- the precision and thoughtfulness in planning shone through every aspect of our big day. I even remember the logistics of walking down the aisle being managed to the core -- Rosie sprinted to the back while I was driven to meet with the flowers, and in preparing to walk, another staff member adjusted my veil so it looked just right. Seriously -- who are these people??? It's easy to get really cynical about the wedding industry with all the ridiculous personas and pricings you get when you shop around, but honestly, Sesnon House was a complete joy to work with. Thank you guys to the moon and back! The kindness and passion in their work was so contagious that by the end of the night, everyone had a joyful experience that really brought out the best in them. Oh and PS -- while we sprung for literally every feature we could imagine, me and my now hubby landed within budget!!!! What a cherry on top of all the insanity. It's nice to pay what you expect for a day that was magical beyond belief. My dad's advice that day was to keep an album close by for the rest of our lives to remember the day, and I'm so happy that Sesnon House is the back drop to ours.
