    Amazing Wedding Planner And Venue!

    We worked with Amy for over 2 years to plan our dream wedding. She went above and beyond for every single thing and ensured that our experience was phenomenal. She is incredibly organized, detail-oriented, and fairly priced. The venue was breathtaking and Amy made our day perfect. I'd highly recommend anyone looking for planning to use Amy!

    Michael was better than anything I could have ever expected! He helped me through all the pre-wedding gitters and kept everything so efficient. Everyone said it was the most organized wedding they've ever been to. Michael was the sweetest coordinator ever!

From a photographer's standpoint, the venue is a BIG deal. Yes, good photographers can create great photos without a good location. But when you have a great location and a great photographer, then you can create something amazing. I find that you really find out the true character of a business by how they treat you when you are aren't their client. Everyone there at Balboa did an incredible job, servicing both the couple as well as accommodating other vendors, like myself. Definitely go and visit Balboa and meet with them. Great venue with an amazing location right next to the beach.
