Saratoga Country Club

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

The Saratoga Country Club sits in the wooded hills above the Santa Clara Valley, with everything you’ll need for a beautiful wedding day: amazing surroundings, a romantic wedding location, an elegant but casual Clubhouse, and great food.

Our wedding site, on top of a gentle hill, is one reason many couples choose the club – you’ll be surrounded by panoramic hillside views, and there’s a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, 15-foot-high white wrought-iron domed gazebo, surrounded by cobblestones. The gazebo is also surrounded by a large lawn and enclosed inside a decorative fence – a private retreat where the two of you can exchange your vows.

After your wedding ceremony, take the short walk to the Clubhouse reception area via a spectacular lighted staircase with white railings.

Our contemporary clubhouse is a two-story structure, painted in soft earth tones that harmonize with the surrounding hills. There’s a large portico and pergola-shaded walkway that add a little drama to the building’s entrance, and the exquisite cherrywood and cut-glass double doors will remind you of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work.

In the Main Dining Room, the cream-colored walls capture the sunlight, thanks to the large windows that are interspersed with stately columns. French doors lead to wide decks that overlook the greens of the golf course below and the Santa Clara Valley off in the distance. There’s even a dance floor and stage area. Dress the room up or down to your own taste.

Our lawn area can hold wedding parties of up to 250 people, and our event/reception area can also hold 250.

The Saratoga Country Club is a gay-friendly wedding venue. Event Manager Linda Thibeault looks forward to working with you to create a magical wedding day for you and your partner.
