What do our Brides and Grooms have to say about Hartley Botanica?


I looked everywhere and yours is the most beautiful wedding spot in all of Ventura County. We loved our wedding and so did everyone else, I am still having people tell me how beautiful the place was.

Tammy and Pat Askren Moorpark, CA

It was a fairytale come true. Everyone was just overwhelmed with the beauty. We couldn't have been more pleased with the entire event. There could never be a bad event within such beautiful grounds. Heaven on Earth.

Debra Childress Simi Valley, CA

Thank you so much for allowing us to borrow your piece of paradise. Hartley's was everything that we had hoped and more. While we were aware of the beauty of our surroundings during our wedding and reception, viewing everything in the photographs really allowed us to step back and take it all in. The beauty of the natural setting, the pleasant staff and your assistance along the way made the hour drive from Los Angeles more than worth the trip. Thank you so much for everything.

Melina and Phaylen Abdullah Los Angeles, CA

I searched all over the L.A. area before finding your gardens. They were more beautiful than Chris & I could have ever imagined existed. What made it even better were the people we got to work with. Command, Hip Hop, Raquel, Skiff's, they were all AWESOME & really listened to what our ideas were. Thank you for helping to make our day PERFECT!

Kristina and Christian Harrell Mill Valley, CA

Grounds were absolutely beautiful! I had so many comments from my guests -- they just fell in love with the gardens! Even my photographer said that he wished he had gotten married at Paliuli!! And the beauty of the gardens made our photos look incredible! Skiff's [Bakery] was great -- I got many compliments from the guests. Many said it was the best wedding cake they ever had! The food, service, and execution of my many requests were excellent. Also, [Command Performance] was so helpful and made sure that everything was perfect!

Tania and Ty Russell Simi Valley, CA

Couldn't be better! [Command Performance] is a pleasure to work with. Outstanding! It was a pleasure working/planning with your family. You made the process exciting and enjoyable. Thank you!!

Kelly and Cheryl Hall Camarillo, CA

Having our wedding at Hartley Botanica and using many of the vendors made everything flow so well. Trevor was amazing -- as was Jocelyn [A Beautiful Day Productions]. Many people came up to me and told me that ours was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. Thank you for absolutely everything!

Kristen and Jason Daw Port Huenume, CA

Actually exceeded my expectations. Everything was kept neatly and the grounds were beautiful. What a fairytale.

Jesse and Nicole Bozman Moorpark, CA

You [Coordinator Wendi] and the Staff at Hartley’s are wonderful and truly made our special day one we and our guests will never forget. I have had guests tell me it was the most wonderful wedding they have ever been to and don’t want to go to another wedding unless it is at Hartley’s (and that is the truth)!!! We thank you so very much, and wish you all the best.

Irene & Scott Edelstein Thousand Oaks, CA

Thanks again to you and your associates, Wendi [Bella Dia – Coordinator], Jennifer [Belle of the Ball Designs – Florist], Trevor [Command Performance Catering], Alex [Alex Neumann Photography] and Bruce [Bruce Barrios Mobile DJ]. You all couldn't have been nicer more helpful or more professional. I had said from the beginning that I wanted to be a guest at this wedding and that’s just what I was and I had a wonderful time.

Rosemary Chavez, Mother-of-the-Bride Canyon Country, CA

Thank you for all your help these past 10 months of wedding planning! Jonathan and I are so grateful to have found Hartley Botanica. Our guests LOVED Hartley and repeatedly asked us how we had discovered such a beautiful haven.

Shirley and Jonathan Fan San Gabriel, CA

We want to again say what a truly wonderful experience our wedding was at your venue! We had an awesome time and so did our guests.

Christina & Marc Lindberg Simi Valley, CA

We just wanted to personally thank the 3 of you [Barbara, Karen, Trevor] for really making our wedding so memorable and perfect. The compliments about the venue, food and flow of things just keep rolling in and We are overfilled with gratitude. We have heard so many horror stories of things that go wrong on peoples wedding days that it feels sort of surreal that ours was so ABSOLUTELY perfect. We have zero complaints. Nothing but gratitude, relief and great memories. I'm sure it's easy to just come back from the honeymoon and carry on with life and forget, but you all deserve a personal "gracias" from the heart! We will be ranting and raving and recommending for years to come.

Jennifer & Eric Sanchez Camarillo, CA

Thank you so much for everything. Our guests could not stop raving about Hartley and how beautiful it was! Everything was truly perfect, exactly what I have dreamt about. Beautiful and so well organized, we didn't have to worry about a thing! Thank you!!

Gretchen & Ryan Lindgreen Valencia, CA

I am just winding down from this whirlwind weekend! But I just had to tell you that Hartley Botanica was the most amazing venue & experience. Our guests were raving how beautiful it was, & many told us it was the nicest wedding they've ever been to.

Janine Snow, Mother-of-the-Bride Thousand Oaks, CA

I heard nothing but great reviews from so many of our guests! I already knew the venue was beautiful but I was especially impressed with the staff and their close attention to all needs!  The food was yummy, the food and drink service to the wedding party during the cocktail hour was so appreciated by all that were kept "captive" there.  I felt that we were well taken care of the whole evening. And as the the mother-of-the-bride, I was able to be a guest and not have to oversee anything. A fun time by all! My only complaint is that time passed by way to quickly.

Marci Barba-Saurer Montrose, CA

Brad and I just wanted to thank you so much for helping us with all things wedding related every step of the way. You and your staff are incredible. We had such a perfect day and we are so happy we got to have a Hartley Wedding. Our guests all had a fantastic time, as did Brad, myself, and our families. Just so appreciate all the care you put into every wedding you have.

Thank you for the most wonderful day of our lives, we are forever grateful.

Ventura, CA

Thank you so much for a beautiful memory ... Our wedding was amazing, the staff was amazing, everything was flawless and I could not have asked for a more perfect day!  I think you might be having a couple more weddings out of ours - everybody was amazed and loved it! I also have to thank Karen and Trevor for their wonderful service.

Michele & Kory Collins Simi Valley, CA

I can't begin to thank you all for our beautiful day on Saturday. It truly was the best day of my life! Thank you!

Alex Scott Playa del Rey, CA

We want to thank you for everything. Hartley Botanica is truly an amazing place and the rave reviews about the venue from our guests poured in all through the night.
