"...The catering for the Villa is done in house and is one part of the all-inclusive package that can not be swapped out. After tasting their food I can't see why anyone would want to. When we came for our tasting before the wedding we were blown away at how flavorful and exquisite the food dishes were. This isn't just a steak and chicken type of establishment. We ended up choosing the Pork wrapped in prosciutto and Chicken Marsala which were both great options. Our guests raved about the food as well and we even heard this was the best "wedding food" they had ever had..."  1/6/2016 Kristin H. Orange, CA  (see full review on Yelp)

  • Villa de Amore is the best choice for a vineyard wedding without a bunch of wine tasters watching you get married. Everything was easy and taken care of. You basically pick your dream wedding and Villa de amore makes it happen. Our March 4. 2012 wedding was beyond any vision or dream of a wedding I had. The Villa staff was right there making everything seamless and was very comforting. John our dj was like a personal assistant at the reception. He was so awesome! The new ballroom is just amazing. There is nowhere more beautiful to get married!! Soirée did the most beautiful bouquets and flower arrangements. Villa de amore picks the best vendors to work with. They really take care of everything! Loved our wedding day and will always recommend Villa de amore.
