Outdoor Ceremony

Bernie and Nirali have been together for seven years and their love showed every time we met with them!   They always wanted an outdoor ceremony and we had the perfect location for them!  One venue which we coordinate our special events through is Soka University in Aliso Viejo.  This venue is beautiful and has the best outdoor areas for wedding ceremonies.  Our favorite location at the university is in front of Peace Lake.  Here, there is a gorgeous fountain where couples can "tie the knot" and also a mini lake with runways that go through it, which is a favorite area for photographers! 
Bernie and Nirali had a very simple yet beautiful wedding ceremony and they looked great.  After the ceremony at Soka University, guests arrived at Pacific Hills for the reception.  Bernie and Nirali had mentioned that they had a "partying" crowd and that was definitely the case.  After all the formalities the party got started and their was barely any room left on the dance floor.  The highlight of the event was definitely the grand entrance, we have never seen guests welcome a bride and groom with so much enthusiasm!

Richard Blade in the House

The most important thing to Marc and Sandra was to make sure that their guests had an amazing time at their wedding and we made sure that they got what they wanted!
Their special day began with a beautiful ceremony in our Laguna Ballroom.  The room was draped in white and our LED lights were color coordinated with their wedding colors.  The ceremony was performed by the very characteristic and funny Rev. Todd G. Rodarmel (  He entertained the guests with his humor yet also made sure that the ceremony was performed without a hitch.  
Friends and family were then treated to a phenomenal eight piece Mariachi Band and fully hosted can never go wrong with a hosted bar!
The ceremony was followed by the reception which was pumped up by none other than Richard Blade from KROQ on the turn tables (  We have been fortunate enough to have had Richard DJ at our venue a few times and he never fails to ROCK the party!  As a result, Marc and Sandra spent most of their evening on the dance floor partying with their guests.

Simple and Elegant

Stephanie and Walter preferred a very simple wedding with a unique touch of elegance.  They chose purple and champagne as their wedding colors and this was represented through all their wedding decor. 
Our guests and clients are constantly inquiring about great photo locations on our venue, and we have plenty areas to show them!  Stephanie and Walter took the opportunity prior to their ceremony to take some amazing pictures at the venue and as you can see below, they came out breath taking!  Our newly redesigned lobby is also highlighted in the pictures below.  Their pictures were taken by one of our favorite photographers, Kevin Derek (  He has photographed many weddings at our venue and is definitely on our preferred list.  Great images, as always Kevin!
