Perfection

I cannot say enough nice things about La Escondida Celebration Center. We searched for a venue for my daughters wedding. She wanted outdoors, small and relatively simple. I am so glad we found them. First-communication- excellent! We had lots of questions and they answered them all quickly! Second-Accommodating- Began planning for November then ended up with an abrupt date change to July 22. They pivoted and we鈥檙e able to make it happen! Third- Price- we looked at lots of places and LECC is very reasonably priced for all the services they offer. Location is fabulous, food was great. Decorations were simple and beautiful. The venue is gorgeous, to have a wedding in July in this heat and drought, the grass was green and the shade provided by the hundreds of trees was amazing. You will have zero regrets if you are able to choose them for your event. They are friendly and sweet and didn鈥檛 have any problem working with a small budget or on a shortened timeline.

Excellent Venue and Wedding Planning

Candy Berkley has been very patient with us while planning our wedding. My finance and I had originally looked for places that were reasonable and matched our budget. We found La Escondida through recommendations from FaceBook, so we decided to check it out. Candy listened to my vision, and was very understanding of what our budget was. We discussed options for a certain amount of guests, only to find out later that we needed to increase the guest amount. She was very understanding, considering we were planning our wedding in less than eight months. Only to then be thrown another curve ball in March. She again was very understanding and empathetic to the fact that I possibly was going to have to pause wedding planning for a few months, due to uncertainties of work and so forth. In May we decided to kick off planning again. I had asked about increasing guests once again, my wedding was scheduled for August. She kept me up to date with precautions the venue was taking to ensure our safety, in which I was able to pass the information along to the guests that would be attending. Unfortunately, the number of cases continued to increase. Just right before the month mark before my wedding, I decided to postpone. I was able to meet with her via Zoom the next day after my decision, and discussed possible new dates that were available.
I love this place! She has vendors that work very closely with her to ensure that everything runs smoothly. For example, since I had to postpone, instead of contacting the caterer, it was a vendor of hers and she was able to reschedule that for me.
