Beautiful Wedding Venue
After visiting a few venues in Orange County, we decided the Muck was the best for us. You get the whole property for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, so you really get to design a custom experience for guests. The mansion provided many beautiful locations for photos, and had a bridal suite a groom's suite that we utilized the day of. I would definitely hold another event at the Muck.Sent on 11/17/2019

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
