Wedding location #10

This venue is right next to the wedding location #8. Very modern, edgy, and club-like….you might recognize this placeΒ  as this used to be a nightclub and now turned into a wedding reception place.

I really like this place because the lighting, sound system and technology is already there….no need to spend extra on lighting and top of the line speakers.

RR loved this place because he said it’s very modern, hip and him …. mmmm…..well I do like it but it’s a little too modern for my taste.

The entrance…a doorman will be standing here just to open the gate to guests.

I had to take a picture of this fountain…even though it’s a tiny one.

A very good spot to greet the guests and for picture area. You must wonder why I always look for picture spots. Well, most Asian couples like to take pictures with the guests before they enter the reception, therefore, when I visit a location, I try to spot a good backdrop or placement for it.

Walkway to the reception. The flowers can be removed and changed into the couple’s engagement photos.

I really love the lounge seating….if anyone bring children and then get tired during the reception, this can be their resting place.

If someone has a band as their entertainment, this is where they will be to perform. (Sorry photo is blurry…I really need a new camera)

Bride and groom can sit on this little stage so everyone can see them.

More lounging seating with tables….love, love, love it!!!

Dance floor and where the tables will be arranged. Too bad there wasn’t any tables set for today…I wanted to get the feel of it 😦

See??? Great lighting, which can definitely be customized to anyone’s wedding color!

The venue can offer this centerpiece as part of their package. I love it! Soooo modern….

The bar…..very important! πŸ™‚

A more overall view of the reception/dance floor. The logo that you see on the floor, the venue can customize it to be the bride and groom’s name.

Wedding location #9

Our next wedding location took us to Fullerton. I went to Cal State Fullerton and wasn’t even aware of this place a few blocks away from school. I guess when you are busy studying and working, weddings are the last thing on your mind right? And who knew I would become a wedding planner huh? ….You never know what the future might bring you…but I am happy I got myself into this exciting adventure.

Now, here are the photos of the place…

Wedding location #8

Alright….so another wedding location tour today in Costa Mesa. It’s close to the freeway and easy to find. I really like the place and the staff is so friendly. I am probably biased because I might have found MY own wedding location πŸ™‚ Well, let’s not jump to conclusion yet but I would love love love to get married here. There are plenty of photo opportunities at this location and everything is so very pretty.

This gate will be closed on the wedding day but I can already envision many many photos in front of this fountain.

Another fountain…I think I counted about 4 fountains at this place. I love fountains…it’s so serene and peaceful.

Groom and groomsmen changing room…they have a big screen TV and a bar!

Ceremony courtyard…I’m not really a fan of the seating placement but it’s good enough. Oh look! Another fountain!

Again, a wedding was going to take place that day so I had a good feel for how a wedding will be at this place.

So after all the photos you have seen, would you think this is a good place for me to get married at?

Wedding location #7

Well to tell you the truth, I was shocked when I got to this location…I really thought I was lost because there was NO WAY a wedding location can be tucked in a strip mall. Boy was I wrong…the outside really threw me off and wasn’t attractive at all…I mean the location was next to a podiatrist and a DMV! However….people say don’t judge the book by its cover and it’s true because once you step inside, it’s whole different story. Sorry I didn’t take picture of the outside because I thought it wasn’t worth it. πŸ˜‰

I thought this was the perfect “wall” place for photos with guests when they arrive.

Pretty!

The reception area.

The location was getting ready for a wedding that night so I was lucky to get a feel for the atmosphere.

photo (104)

I love the idea of having a lounge area at the reception.

The sweetheart table and the bridal party table.

photo (106)

The ceremony area…in my opinion, this location is good for a reception but not a ceremony because it is a little too tight.
