    This venue was perfect for our small wedding ceremony. Leading up to our wedding the weather forecast looked beautiful, but then the night before suddenly a large rain storm was due in the area all day. Naturally I panicked a bit, but still really wanted to have my wedding in this beautiful park. Kathleen came to the rescue and told us that we could hold out until 30 minutes before the ceremony and if the rain was still coming down they could put up a tent last minute for us. This worked out perfectly since the rain stopped just in time for our ceremony so we got full use out of this beautiful space.

    We took our pictures before our wedding at the John F. Collins park. We got ready at the hotel Palomar and walked a block down to this park. Sarah was great to work with! For a small fee they cleaned and closed down the park for us for an hour while we took pictures. I can't wait to see how the pictures came out!
