We had a beautiful wedding at Salt Creek Beach in Dana Point. Our ceremony and reception were all held on the site (and it was VERY convenient for our guests). The location is a very affordable, well-kept secret - and it is amazingly beautiful. Our reception had a slight spanish theme with beautiful red and black touches, and we danced under the stars with sparklers fireworks (lit by our guests for our first dance together). We didn't want the night to end!
Don't let the name fool you - Country Garden Caterers isn't your mom's catering company out of her house in the suburbs. They are a full-fledged, very talented local catering company that does a GREAT job. Diana Perkins was invaluable to our wedding planning and I can't say enough about how hard she worked to make our day a success. She is a true professional at making all the little details come together, and just a tip, pay her extra to be your 'day-of' wedding coordinator if you want someone there who knows their stuf. She is great, and kept everything on track, quickly resolved any issues (and didn't clue me in to save me from worrying). Their Mexican food is top notch, and our dinner of carnitas, shrimp, asada and chicken was so good. We still get compliments on our wedding food. They do a great job, and are pretty affordable as far as caterers go. Totally recommend Diana and Country Garden Caterers.
