Amanda’s favorite part of the wedding planning process is when a wedding couple sees the design-finished venue space for the first time, and all the months of planning pay off. She loves turning wedding dreams into a reality and being a part of the most important day of your life! She is also a strong advocate for including flower pups & four-legged ring bearers.

The Newport Dunes knows how to throw a party. They have an attentive staff of coordinators and servers. Where the Newport Dunes does not receive enough credit is for their food. The food is some of the best in Orange County. And with such a large facility, brides have many choices from beach front to elegant banquet rooms. So if your a flip flop or a high heel type of bride, the Newport Dunes has a place for your wedding. FLY BY NIGHT highly recommends The Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort!

Tustin Banquet Center Tustin Banquet Center Mansion Weddings

Newport Dunes is an amazing location due to the fact they have about 10 different locations on-site. You can pick and choose the PERFECT SPOT for your ceremony and reception!! If you are looking to have a waterfront location...this is your dream come true. You will find that Randi Zamora is extremely helpful, and has quite a bit of knowledge in the wedding industry. Randi has a very easy going friendly personality.

Reverend Michael Wedding Officiant Reverend Michael Wedding Officiant Wedding Officiants

For any Bride and Groom reading this endorsement: I am Rev. Michael and I Officiate at all locations in Orange County. And one of my top five favorite locations to Officiate at is the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort. Their staff are, without a doubt, the best, the most flexible, the most organized and the nicest coordinators to work with. I receive so many rave reviews from my couples not only regarding the way they handle the Ceremony but the reception as well. I would be remiss in not telling you to at least call the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort and investigate their venue.
