"El Sueño was the perfect wedding venue! We received so many compliments on how beautiful the location and wedding. Susanne and her husband were a dream to work with! She helped anywhere she could and even stepped in when my coordinator got sick. Our dogs were allowed to make a quick appearance for photos Our day was perfect!" Stephany Flores

"Words can’t describe the feelings my now husband & i have about our wedding day at El Sueño- i mean, wow, was it magical!

Susanne & Stan went above & beyond for our special day. Not only did they have things in their something borrowed closet that worked perfectly with our moody boho brunch theme, she was also so accommodating with allowing us to decorate the alter to fit our style. I would also like to add that i was a bride from Texas, so you can imagine planning a wedding from another state was a challenge, but with help of Susanne we were able to feel confident that our special day would be all we could of hoped for & more. She was more than a gracious host & we even had the honor of having her officiate our wedding! Memories that will be cherished forever we’re made & so we thank you soo much for everything!!" Ashley Blair

"My Son and his new Bride got married at El Sueno Bed & Breakfast & Wedding Venune in January. Susanne is amazing to work with, and the wedding was gorgeous. They have a beautiful home with amazing views! Their 1890s Bar is so gorgeous! Thank you Suzanne!!!" Begie Bonds

"Amazing location, and facility. Great staff !" Roger Freeman

"The views at this venue are unbelievable! It is a very unique place and can function for a variety of events - the company that I work for used it for an outdoor team building activity and team dinner for over 100 employees. Although this is not a one-stop-shop for events, the host Susanne has several resources that she recommends and is very helpful and flexible in the planning and execution of the event. We got nothing but great feedback from our employees and would love to host another event here someday." Ayla Pequeno

"I cannot express how PERFECT this Wedding Venue is and the owners. Not only is the venue Stunning and Beautiful but they also went above and beyond to make my daughters wedding the absolute perfect day. We received so many compliments about the venue itself and how Gorgeous it was. Thank you both so much for the privilege of having the wedding at El Sueno.  I definitely recommend this with the highest marks." Sherri Jacko
