Holy smokes, Mrs. dooks!  I just got married there last weekend! Haha.  I put a long post about it on their yelp page.  We had our ceremony and a “cocktail” hour there after the ceremony.  I can’t imagine having the whole reception there–what with having to bring in generators (there are 2 electric outlets around the ampitheater, but i think that’s it), only one decent bathroom inside the nature center, prolonged exposure to bugs, and one thing most of family noticed was the incredible amount of dust that builds up on shoes/clothing as you’re walking around.  It was great for about an hour and a half, but i really think you’d need to comp some people shoe shines for much more than that.

For the ceremony, it was beautiful though–and the people working there are super nice and very flexible about what they’ll let you do as long you don’t burn the place down.

PM me if you have any questions!

Wow!  That’s crazy that you saw it. Haha.  I briefly toyed with the idea of renting a big ol’ house up in Anaheim hills for awhile or somewhere nearby to do the reception, but it got nixed for a chinese restaurant in Cerritos–after all the husband is Chinese.  I vaguely remember some crazy-looking mansion on vrbo.com in Anaheim hills, but really can’t remember how much it cost. =P  I definitely think it was outside of our strict budget, but I think it would be awesome to roll up a food truck to a huge house.

Good luck!

Have you looked at Hillcrest Terrace in Fullerton? It’s a beautiful outdoor area, and there’s indoor space too. I think the price is pretty cheap; you would rent through the City.

Hello, have your received any more information that would be helpful for the oak nature center?

For those that don’t mind, can you share the price of everything (ceremony and reception) vendors, photographers, caterers, etc. and for how many guests?
