- Wedding: July 2008
I am trying not to stress about the details but I find that it’s next to impossible not to at least stress a little:) My fiance and I are getting married in a Catholic church and we are trying to find a reception site that will work well with our times, location, etc. We are getting married at my hometown church in Pleasant Hill, but we aren’t opposed to a slight travel for a wonderful reception site.
We have looked at the Claremont, Hacienda de las Flores, Contra Costa Country Club, and the Orinda Country Club. I liked the two country clubs the best as they seem to have more of a go with the flow set up (cocktail hour can be exactly when we arrive, not at a designated time..like at the Claremont) and they seem to be the most financially reasonable!
I have inquired to the Brazilian room at Tilden Park (not available during the evening we want), Hs Lordships in Berkeley, I am waiting to hear from Wildwood Acres Resort in Lafayette, the Berkeley City Club isn’t available, and I’m waiting to hear from the Crow Canyon Country Club. I just want to check out as many places as possible and narrow down from there. I am not a picky person, I just want our wedding to be beautiful and flow perfectly throughout the day. We are getting married next August…I’m fine on time right?! I need all the encouragement I can get!:) Thanks in advance Bees!
