This is such a beautiful reception venue. From the hardwood floors to the chandeliers on the ceiling... to the breathtaking views of the Dana Point Harbor... all of our guests commented how beautiful the wedding was. Danielle was such a pleasure to work with. She was willing to work with our budget, and was very patient with us when it came to last minute changes (which makes a huge difference!) We also had so many moving parts--- we had a Korean tea ceremony during dinner for the guests to watch, and she was very accommodating to our needs and what we needed to make it possible. The cocktail hour location is right by the water with string lights above. We were also able to convert that area into a s'mores pit later on that night. The staff was professional and kind, and the food was wonderful!

I can’t say enough good stuff about Danielle and her staff in the Special Events Department. I was privileged enough to find this venue through WeddingWire and then later, my company ended up working on their facility after an unfortunate water damage. From the moment I stepped onto the Property, I fell in love with the ambiance, location and spectacular views. After the damage was mitigated and all of the Restoration work was complete - that just added to the beauty of this venue.
Danielle and the General Manager, Russell, were gracious enough to accommodate my two children during the meal tasting, they recommended vendors with whom we could meet and eventually hire. She took the time to answer my many questions and had the patience to help me through the planning process.
In the end, our special day will sure to be magical in every sense of the word - and all because of the professionalism and talent that shows in all they do.

Such a beautiful place with a great team, consider your wedding in this scenic location and you won't be disappointed.
We've been to a few events that we have both worked as a photographer and attended as a vendor and guest. They do a great job! It's a great venue with beautiful views of the harbor. They have great indoor and outdoor spaces and there are so many pretty views for photos. The food is really great too. We highly recommend them for your wedding or event!
