- Wedding: May 2014
My Finance and I just booked our wedding and reception at Boccali’s Italian restaurant in Ojai. http://boccalis.com/
Our budget is $10,000 and they’ve quoted us as ~$27 per person for an Italian buffett. They have a beautiful all outdoor venue with oak trees and a stage ($1,500 rental fee) and now we have to start planning how to decorate it all!
My question is has anyone ever been to a wedding there or better yet-been married there? My idea is to do a simple yet elegant wedding (shabby/chic). There’s one oak tree sort of separate from everything and I’m thinking of creating a “lounge area” that has chairs/sofa, the guest book, and a projector that shows pictures of us/friends/family/ ect. I knew I didn’t want a venue that felt like a wedding mill but I’m finding myself a little overwhelmed by trying to figure out how to organized the layout of everything and make sure it all flows. Any help would be grealty appreciated!
