Monte Verde Inn
What sets you apart from your competition? We are all an all inclusive venue. We include three premium package options with cocktail hour included. Classic or luxury linens (see package options), tables and white chairs, flatware, glassware and stemware, custom designed décor flowers (centerpiece flowers and 3 large arrangements), custom designed wedding cake (designed for and with you), professional day-of-coordination, complimentary suites for Bride and Groom, complete set-up and break-down of the event.
What trend do you see coming for weddings this year and beyond? Neutral color pallets, greenery, geode and geometric inspired decor.
What’s your favorite comment/compliment that one of your clients has given you/your business? That we make their wedding run so smoothly from the beginning planning meetings to the day of & that the day was perfect!
What is your favorite fun thing to do locally? Explore restaurants and breweries in the neighboring towns of Foresthill, like Auburn.
What’s your favorite local charity? Petal Connection! Our brides can donate their centerpiece arrangements to hospice care.
What’s your favorite local restaurant? Auburn Alehouse or Dingus McGees (both located near Foresthill). We always recommend these places for rehearsal dinners.
If you were to plan your own wedding, or re-do your wedding, what element(s) would be most important to you? Vendors are a HUGE deal to making an event go smoothly. Always take preferred vendors into consideration. They are an investment but worth every penny. Coordinators, DJs and photographer can have a huge impact on your wedding day!
What advice would you can give to soon-to-be-married couples? It’s never to early to start planning. Most venues and vendors book about a year or 18 months out. So start planning as soon as you can! Venue first then vendors.
Stayed tuned for Part 2 of Monte Verde Inn’s Partner Profile in the coming weeks!
