February In Love

Another Great Open House!

What a spectacular day Saturday February 5th! The sun was shining in the Sierra Foothills and not a cloud in the sky, you couldn't have asked for a better day for our 2011 couples.

The celebration or workshop if you will, is conducted every year here at the Monte Verde Inn. It's all about preparing our couples for the biggest day of their lives.

As the couples arrive at the Inn they were greeted with a smile and a special bag with all the necessary planning forms needed for their wedding day.


From there they hopped into the playful and fun photo booth provided by SJDJ's Photobash . 

Photobooths are both entertaining and provide an excellent idea as a favor for your guests.  


Cocktails anyone?  Our tasting began with cocktails of course.  The Monte Verde Inn offers many different signature cocktails for our couples to choose from.

This one day allows our couples to taste items that they might want at their wedding. The day is extremely busy for Chef Douglas Dalisa as he prepares about 75% of the food we offer here at the Inn.

This year we introduced new items to our packaging.  We were excited to unveil our Korean Beef, Oyster Mushroom and Rice Noodle Salad in Individual Containers and Seared Scallop Medallion on Rice Coin with Spicy Orange Dream Sauce and Chives.    We are also proud to have introduced our new "Sommelier" Hosted Bar Package.  The upscale items will truly impress any guest. Some of the new additions are Chimay "Blue" and a Provenance "Rutherford" Merlot. 

After a quick tour through the Inn, the couples were encouraged to view all the vibrant and colorful table settings.  Each table was decorated differently with linens and centerpieces. 
We were so proud to have our favorite professional vendors come to the event.  A special thanks to each of them. 

The grand finale was the tasting of the cakes and eating of the candy bar.  We were excited to present our new cake flavors.  The favorite flavors were a toss-up between the Mocha Marble and the Lemon. The Monte Verde Inn is now offering a custom color coordinated candy bar for their clients.  This arrangement of beautiful glass jars and delicious candy will surely compliment anyone's wedding

A big thanks to all our 2011 couples!!  We are so excited to start planning your big day!!!

Happy Planning!!
