Weddings of Distinction

Paolo’s dramatic and unique park-like setting
on the banks of the tranquil Guadalupe River
in the heart of downtown San Jose is the ideal
setting for your wedding reception, rehearsal
dinner, or bridal shower.

Paolo’s will orchestrate your wedding day from beginning to end, with the same impeccable style and sophistication for which Paolo’s has been known for over 50 years.

Paolo’s flexible indoor-outdoor layout allows us to accommodate intimate private gatherings as small as 10 people or up to 400 people. All of Paolo’s dining rooms boast floor-to-ceiling windows, overlooking an expansive courtyard area and scenic views of Guadalupe River Park.

During the summer months or when weather permits, arrangements can be made for outdoor receptions on RiverPark Plaza overlooking Guadalupe River or inside the breathtaking RiverPark Lobby which boasts a 45 foot copper ceiling, rich terracotta-colored marble floors and ceiling height windows which face the banks of the Guadalupe River.

Outdoor locations near the courtyard waterfall and Guadalupe River are also available for wedding ceremonies.
