The Bacara was outstanding. We had our wedding on the lawn by the Miro and had our dinner in the cellar. It was a very small wedding and they were more then accomadating. I was concerned that with a ceremony with 20 attendees that this venue wouldn't be an option. They were fabulous! The dinner in the cellar was wonderful!Sent on 09/14/2012
