Originally part of the Old Mission San Jose garden, Palmdale Estates is a beautifully landscaped site, featuring dozens of stately palms and native California trees, verdant lawns, gardens and even a pond.  In the midst of this lovely setting is Best House, a Tudor-style mansion whose delightful interior and grounds create a storybook backdrop for weddings any time of year.     Vince Terry Photography
Built in 1915, the house reflects much of the elegant, ornate detailing of the period:  graceful arched doorways, bas-relief ceiling moldings, crystal chandeliers, hand painted murals and gleaming hardwood floors.  The Ballroom, though the largest space in the house, still has an intimate feeling with cream-colored walls, an oversized decorative marble fireplace and a huge leaded glass window overlooking the gardens.  At one end of the Ballroom, a few steps take you up to The Music Room, a glitzy alcove with gold leaf walls and colorful stained glass window.  At the other end are the formal Dining Room and Solarium, two light and airy rooms with an abundance of leaded glass windows and views of the "backyard". 

When you get married here, you have exclusive use of the main floor of the house as well as the adjacent lawns to orchestrate your wedding any way you like.  During warm months, most couples tie the knot in the white gazebo on the rear lawn, which is bordered by pines, redwoods and dotted with palms and fruit trees.  They have their reception outdoors as well, setting up tables in the grassy expanse next to the gazebo.  Afterwards, the guests are invited inside for dancing and cake cutting.  In winter, receptions are generally held in the Ballroom, with the other spaces used according to the couple's preferred fluid floor plan which offers plenty of flexibility.  (Note that Starr Gardens, behind the adjacent Peach mansion, is available for ceremonies and receptions.)  Whether you celebrate under the magnificent palms or in the grand surroundings of Best House, you can't help but enjoy the quiet beauty of Palmdale Estates.  Firestone Photography

The main floor of the Best House is an area of 2500 square feet and will accommodate a party of 200.  The capacity of the exterior well exceeds 500.  It is an elegant facility for weddings, corporate meetings and parties.
