Rossmoor Pastries came with our package with Green River Golf Club, and we didn't pay anything out of pocket for a beautiful 4 tiered white buttercream cake with California Sunset flavor. There are lots of cake designs to choose from, and you can always upgrade. Consultation was quick and efficient. I wanted to "personalize" my cake with accessories, and they were a bit resistant (cake purists often are) so I just had my bridesmaids "personalize" the cake after delivery. ;)
Flowers can be expensive, even with our package that gave us some credit. Murrieta Flower Girl was probably our biggest expense for dining table centerpieces for the reception. The arrangements were beautiful and lasted for a week! Because flowers are expensive, though, I chose not to order the flowers I had in mind, but they had lots of great recommendations and alternate flowers for cheaper. The staff didn't make me feel pressured to spend more or cheap for sticking to my small budget. The owner, Sheri, is a sweetheart and is the only person who does billing/costs, so the floral designers don't have that pressure when building your centerpieces, and can concentrate on making works of art!!
This church is beautiful and the people are wonderful to work with. The only problem is that the musicians and wedding coordinator can be hard to get a hold of, and they're so busy with all the other couples (5 weddings a day here!), they may not remember who you are and what you asked for. Make follow up calls to ensure your wedding day goes smoothly. If the wedding before you runs late, you will be rushed to start on time. Brides get only 1 hour in the cramped dressing room (hopefully it's cleaned out by the previous bride) to get ready and take pictures, so things may get a bit chaotic. All in all, we had a wonderful, beautiful, and calm ceremony.
Green River is amazing and extremely affordable. There are all-inclusive packages for a very reasonable price, and they use specific vendors who are used to the site and the coordinators, and know what to do. They take care of all the details (a wedding is a wedding to them) but you can also make it VERY personalized on your own.
Staff is friendly, full hot breakfast is a giant plus for guests the day after the wedding. Rooms are a bit on the dark side, though, but very clean.
