My wife and I had our wedding at The Muck in October 2017. We couldn't have been happier with the venue. Duane was great to work with. Any question we had was answered quickly. He was accessible by phone or email. His staff made sure that any of our needs on the day of were taken care of. We didn't have to worry about anything. They all went above and beyond to make our day special. All of our guests loved the venue. It was a perfect setting for us.Sent on 01/04/2018

We had 6 months to plan the wedding and the first and most important decision was the venue. After visiting many locations in OC and LA, we chose Colette's Catering and the Muckenthaler. Without a doubt, we know we made the best decision for us. The location was ideal - as it was central for our guests from all over Southern CA - (IE, OC, and LA). The venue itself is classic, beautiful and incredibly versatile. Its a true "all-in-one" venue to hold different wedding events, we moved our guests seamlessly to each new area - from the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, to dancing. Also, my favorite, was working with Duane and his team. He was incredibly responsive, friendly, warm, and efficient - he has a ton of experience and made the usually stressful process, much more easier for us. He was accommodating to many of my requests and I was impressed that he replied to my emails personally and in a timely manner. Last, but not least - THE FOOD! It really was so delicious. Our guests enjoyed it all- I received compliments from the cake, the steak, the veggie sides, even the salad dressing! OH and the bartenders were amazing. They were incredibly generous and kept the drinks flowing, which made for a very festive time indeed! Overall, we had a great time working with Duane and his team. From the beautiful venue, the professionalism, the flexibility, and quality service and food, we are so thankful that we chose the Muckenthaler.Sent on 01/30/2018

My husband and I got married at the Muckenthaler last Saturday and we couldn't have asked for a better venue, catering, or wait staff. Duane Greenleaf and Colettes Catering really helped make our dreams come true. Duane's personable approach to wedding planning and his sweet sweet heart made him and this venue stand out. We were living on the east coast, planning a wedding in Fullerton, where I grew up, and I was nervous at first but it was so doable! We got the gold package and added a fully hosted open bar for our guests and it was so delicious and affordable for our guests of about 150. In the last days prior to the wedding, when things felt super hectic and we were finalizing on numbers and details, Duane really put our relationship first and made us feel so special as he and his team were flexible and patient with us. You can't go wrong at the Muckenthaler!Sent on 05/01/2017
