I was very torn between this location and another (the other just fit our needs a little more). This was our second choice. This venue is PERFECT for a destination wedding or for the bride who just wants to show up in a dress and ready to get married (me). It’s a stress free process since almost everything is included and for a great price. The view is GORGEOUS! The staff was so responsive and very informative. I highly recommend touring this place. The view alone does not disappoint.Sent on 12/06/2019

The perfect "occasion"!
We just had our wedding at Occasions and are speechless! Dayna and her team executed a seamless event (w/ covid protocols) and it was the best time of our life! We had to reschedule from May, which was frustrating and we are so appreciative of Occasions and staff for working through these challenges with us and making it possible for us to safely have an event.
When we were first looking at venues, we looked at several up and down PCH. All of them offered some type of ocean view, but Occasions was the only one that offered an unobstructed view for both the ceremony and reception. We were sold. We felt their pricing/packages were very reasonable and liked the fact that the DJ, cake, food, centerpieces and rentals are all bundled together. It took the stress out of finding vendors on your own. We did several upgrades which was also reasonably priced and let us customize the decor to match our tropical theme.
As far as the planning process, like these other reviews, Dayna truly goes ABOVE & BEYOND to make anything happen. No task is too big or too small - or too late (we were that couple that wanted to change up our grand entrance the night before!). Dayna works with all the vendors which makes your life very, very easy. She coordinated schedules and timing and is all over it during the event which lets you have all the fun. She knows everything about weddings - you are in great hands!
We are from the east coast and 90% of our guests were coming from there. With covid, only 1/3 of our guests came. Dayna and Kathy were understanding of the situation and worked through that with us. I’ve heard horror stories from other brides about venues not being flexible. Very glad this was not the case with us!
The food was fantastic! Andrew from The Cliff was so accommodating. We had several guests with specific dietary needs - including my brother who has a very limited diet, and Andrew was able to accommodate for everyone! We got so many complements on the food and bartender - portions were great and we were able to leverage the outdoor space for an “after party” which was really nice.
The DJ was great. My husband and Lucas were texting day before because we wanted to change things last minute and it was no problem (thankfully!). He’s so nice and was always available when we had a question. His company also has rentals so we took advantage of that and setup string lights which looked great after sunset. We created a playlist as well because we are music junkies and Lucas played everything we wanted. You will not be disappointed!
Safety-wise, Occasions took all necessary precautions and you wouldn’t even had known this was the second wedding to happen since covid! Everyone had masks, tables were spaced out and we sat folks together based off comfortability with one another (and where they were coming from). Everyone sat at their dinner table for the ceremony and honestly I think I liked this setup better because then you don’t have to deal with moving people around for cocktail hour. This worked out great! We also felt safe knowing everything is outdoors and on the water. The entire staff wore masks and used gloves to setup.
Overall, if you are wanting a waterfront wedding in an iconic area I strongly recommend Occasions. We wanted to give our out-of-town guests something unique to remember and Occasions nailed it. I wish we could do it all over again but I think one wedding is enough for now :). Cannot wait to see all the pictures!Sent on 10/05/2020
Occasions at Laguna Village's reply:Dearest Hayley and Nick. Your words warmed all of our hearts here at Occasions and The Cliff Restaurant. We hope you will return each year to visit us on your anniversary!
I photographed a wedding at Occasions on 06/16/2018 with Dayna being the venue coordinator and wedding planner. The venue was beautifully set up and clean. Dayna was responsive and helpful over email and went out of her way the day of to ensure that the day ran smoothly. I highly recommend her!
Laguna Village is beautiful. It is a great venue for your special event and having worked with them many times, we know how great their service is!
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 Ocassions at Laguna Village. Dayna and her 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. I would be remiss in not telling you to at least call Ocassions at Laguna Village and investigate their venue. I also must add that DJ Dave, their staff disk jockey, is one of, if not, the best in Orange County.
