Beautiful venue, excellent value

My son and his fianc茅 wanted to have a small family wedding on the beach. I did some research, and the fees to get a permit for any event on most beaches were expensive, and there were no quarantees that it would be private.. We live in Northern Ca., but I remember seeing a wedding party at the Crown Plaza in Ventura during a stay at the hotel. I inquired about possible wedding packages, and found that they had several...and the Intimate Wedding package sounded perfect for us! Turns out that it was! Jodi was so helpful in coordinating and helping to select the right vendors. It IS important to ask questions though, as there are so many details that I was unfamiliar with. If I could make any suggestion to Jodi and the staff about how to make the process easier for the customer, it would be to have a portfolio of photos of actual weddings held at the venue....I was nervous about the flowers that were ordered, the style of the cake...and about many other things. I would have been much more at ease if there were photos to see, to know what to expect...and even to inspire what questions to ask. Turns out that the venue, officiant, music, flowers and linens were amazing. The reception room and views were beautiful. The food
( including the wedding cake ) was exceptional...and the sunset they ordered was exquisite!!! :) All in all Great job Jodi Wagner and staff at The Crown Plaza Ventura Beach. We are very happy and thankful !! Kerri & Ken for Ale & KC
