    June 29 wedding

    Can’t tell you how wonderful it was to work with the Chris and Rain in the catering/wedding department. They made our wedding so memorable and seamless! They were all so exceptional to work with -- always going above and beyond to accommodate all of our questions and requests. So many guests came up to me during the wedding to tell me how fantastic the staff was from beginning to end –especially my friend who brought flowers from the church to put in the bathrooms and various tables. I know they were getting ready for us to arrive, but they stopped to help her get the hangers off the pots from the pews at church without hesitation! While we were taking pictures, several of the staff came out passing hors’d oeuvres and drinks for us to make sure we ate! So wonderful! During the evening everyone kept coming to me to tell how amazing the staff was. We are so grateful we are for their kindness and professionalism in making this “one of the most fun weddings they have been too”---and that is a direct quote! Included in the cost of dinner was an open bar, our wedding cake, our wedding night at the Portofino with ocean view and bottle of wine. We felt that the value of the evening, much less the gorgeous view from the Terrace and Pacific Ballroom were extraordinary. It was a magical day.

    We’ll be back next June 29!

    So grateful -- many heartful thanks.

    great venue to work with!

    We had a wedding at the pacific ballroom with just 50 guest! We thought the place might be too big for that size crowd but it worked out perfectly. (we also hired a photo booth that helped fill some of the space)
    From day one we had a great experience with Rain, he was absolutely wonderful!
    Honestly the full staff helped make our wedding day perfect they all did an amazing job! The steak!! Our guests kept talking about how great it was. Plus the view! come on u have the ocean right there, and sunset! so stunning!
