    The Westin South Coast Plaza is amazing! It is a convenient and amazing location and has great amenities. Sheena was super helpful in setting up our first look at the waterfall terrace, and with our after wedding suite. She was helpful and professional. I totally recommend the Westin South Coast Plaza for any of your wedding needs.

    The perfect venue for a wedding. We held our reception here and Sheena was so awesome to work with. Very enthusiastic and helpful. The cost per person was a little high to begin with but we were able to negotiate to stay with our budget. The location was PERFECT especially during Thanksgiving weekend. Our guests were able to walk over to the South Coast Plaza without having to worry about finding parking and it is very close to SNA airport (free shuttle, too)!. The grand ballroom was just gorgeous. Our guests were so impressed because the Westin is very high class :). Our A/V team also was able to set up the afternoon before which saved so much time/stress for the day-of. Thanks for making our wedding reception so memorable!

    The Westin was a great wedding venue for us. The Waterfall Terrace was a beautiful spot for the ceremony, and the Plaza Ballroom made for an excellent reception party. It’s also minutes away from the airport, and right across the street from South Coast Plaza shopping center, making it a great location.

    Sheena Mehta, the Catering Sales Manager, was very helpful throughout the planning process, even when we were requesting changes through the last week. In addition, Amber Caldera, who assisted us with our room block, was very quick to respond to any adjustments that we needed to make to our room block.

    Overall, we highly recommend the Westin for any special occasion.
