Getting hitched at Casa Romantica in San Clemente (my huns and I used to surf at the location the venues overlooks). It’s a stunning old Hacienda. 

and the reception is at the Center Club in Costa Mesa. It’s located at the Orange County performing art center. It’s a very special venue, very elegant. 🙂

So far, the tasting at CC was AMAZING! so A for that and the people there are so helpful and crazy kind and generous, so A there.

The CR is small, and thats kind of a problem, but they seem willing to help make it work. And you have to rent everything so it’s kinda pricy. But the location is to die for and it has special meaning for my future hubs and i.

our ceremony was at St. Peter’s Italian Catholic Church.  Father Raniero was awesome, and it was very affordable for non-parishioners. I really liked that he was so flexible with our music choices.  A++


our reception was at Grace E. Simons Lodge; I’d give it an A-/B+.  It was affordable; their prices are actually listed on their website.  They included tables and chairs and allowed BYO catering but required that we use their contracted bar, which was not the best at getting back to us, but the lodge did what they could to help us get in touch with them.  Not everything was listed in the lodge contract, and I only found out when I asked questions about something else.  They have a cute Japanese garden for pics.  They give you your deposit back if you clean up properly.

We’re getting married at SeaCliff Country Club in Huntington Beach. So far, the catering managers have been super fabulous and really accomodating. They were much more affordable any other comparable places in the area.

The Meridian Club through Colettes Catering. It was not my dream, because that would have cost alot the venue was decent. They ran out of chicken, so overall I would say C-

@ddubzz:  We’re thinking about getting married there!  We’re going to check it out this weekend.  My fiance’s worry is because it’s “horsey” it will smell “horsey.”  Did you have this at all?

  • Wedding: June 2010

We got married at The Grand in Long Beach last June. We had the ceremony on the patio and the reception in the attached garden room. The ceremony chairs were nicer when we got married than when we first looked at it. The prices were decent and they have a great special for Sunday through Friday weddings.

I am not getting married in Socal, but it was a thought. The Mission Inn (Riverside) is a gorgeous location for a wedding and although it’s a bit more expensive than other options it is worth it.

I did one of our school banquets there many many years ago and it turned out to be amazing and they were wildly accomodating. Definitely a good option.

Exterior of the venue:


The reception decor is totally customizable. They have seasonal decoration that you can opt out of. If I remember correctly everything in the photo that is hanging from the ceiling was part of their seasonal decor. Reception space:
