    Absolutely stunning!! The water and fountains made my wedding look like it cost a million bucks. The landscape was so beautiful and the architecture makes for wonderful photos. We loved that Soka made the fountain area private and peaceful, including blocking off the parking for our guests only. So there were no wandering strangers into our wedding. All my guests commented on how beautiful the location was. The blue of the water makes our photos pop. And added with flowing drapes that we used to provide our guests with shade....the perfect "wow" combination. We couldn't be happier!

    This venue is breathtaking! There are no words. You drive in and immediately your mouth drops open and the beautiful fountains and waters that are before you in the middle of orange county! Trees and mountains surrounding you and beautiful stone walls and buildings around it as if you just fell right in the middle of Italy. I just got married there and I have to say that every one of my over 200 guests have commented on how stunning the venue was. It is such a unique location. My contact was Fae Monroe who is nothing short of AMAZING! She made the process so easy, so fun! I love her!!! She followed up on everything so quickly and efficiently and helped me through any "freak out bride moments" I had. I love Soka so much! I wish I could drive in and sit by that Peace Fountain every day. Our ceremony was by the Peace fountain, cocktail hour on the balcony and reception in the Founders Hall Art Gallery which has hard wood floors! Thank goodness because I cannot have those hotel carpets in pictures that take a way from the beautiful decor brides work so hard for. Everything was perfect!

    This venue is literally the most beautiful place! Upon driving into the campus, our guests were immediately in awe of the peace fountain lake, and from start to end of our wedding, it was nothing but comments of amazement about how truly beautiful the venue was. Fae, the coordinator at Soka, is also an amazing, responsive, and just plain nice person, and we were so lucky to find this gem. And as far as our pictures go, there was no such thing as a bad backdrop area, every part was absolutely breathtaking!
