We’re getting married at the Spring Field Banquet Center in Fullerton.  Since we are getting married on a Sunday (July 3), we are allowed to bring our own alcohol…AND we get the ENTIRE building to ourselves!  I’m extremely excited about it!!  The menu pp ranges from $25 – $48 in the main ballroom for Fridays and Sundays.  The max capacity in the main ballroom is 300.  It has high, doomed ceillings with gorgeous chandeliers – VERY romantic!!

Our ceremony will take place at the Norweigan Seamans Church in San Pedro and then our reception is at The Founders Hall in Fountain Valley. It is a city owned property so the price was great and it was built recently so everything is clean and new. They also have a built in dance floor and let you bring in your own alcohol and catering. They also have alot of great extra for rental like a portable bar and an
AV set up for an ipod reception.

  • Wedding: April 2010

We got married in the public observation deck on the Santa Monica Pier and had our reception in there (DJ/dancing) and the attached 2nd floor of Mariasol (a Mexican restaurant.) It was so much fun!! And pretty affordable. Especially for the area. Also, the Mariasol staff took care of renting the observation deck from the city and setting up/tearing down ceremony chairs.

This first one is a pic I found of observation deck online. You can see what a beautiful space it is and the view is incredible. It was painted blue by the time our wedding date rolled around, which I loved.

DH and I got married in March at the Cal State FUllerton Alumni House (George G. Golleher Alumni House).  It was a wonderful garden setting – loved it!

(sorry there’s so many “face” pictures of us… it was hard finding pictures of the venue without us in it…lol, for obvious reasons)

Kinda late in posting, but we got married at Calamigos Equestrian in Burbank.  I give it an A for the great service, the beautiful surroundings, the impeccable attention to detail, and the professionalism of the staff.  Everything went off without a hitch… I LOVED our venue (and our wedding day)!

@bohemianbailie: I like your idea of using city property for a good deal (Founder’s Fountain Valley), also my cousin got married at a “senior’s center” and the facility was beautiful. I noticed on their website that you are responsible for clean up. Are you planning to have some people stay after the wedding to clean, or come back in the morning?

I’m not married yet, so I can’t give you a review, but it could give some ideas…

We booked the Temecula Creek Inn and here is a little photo from when we visited the place. They have 1 indoor and 2 outdoor locations, and we chose the Stonehouse:
