A Day Made Exclusively for You

It’s here. Wedding day. But how is it already here?! There’s still so much to do! It’s 9:30 in the morning and we need to be at the hair salon by 10:00am. But we NEED to stop for coffee and something to eat; that’s not even a question. We are already running late, and the make-up artist told us to be back at the hotel by noon. Three hours is enough time for 8 women to get their hair and make-up done… right?  I hope so, because the photographer is coming at 1:00 pm to start the “getting ready photos,” and pictures of me putting on my dress. Aunt Susan should be bringing my dress to the hotel at 1:30pm. I hope she is on time! We must then leave promptly at 2:30pm, [...]

A July Outdoor Ballroom Wedding at West Hills Country Club

When we first met with Alaina and Brian, we knew they were going to have THE MOST FUN wedding ever. How did we know? Their list of “must haves.” All wedding couples have one of these. Some lists are really long, and others can be really short…. But the most important thing about these lists, is that they include everything that is important to the couple! Now, for Alaina and Brian, their “must haves” were fairly simple: A Top-Shelf Bar Beautiful Venue/Grounds Fun and Dancing Great Food Top-Shelf Bar – Check! Their concern was drinking us out of Titos = we said IMPOSSIBLE! ::Side note:: Titos poured nonstop, and there was more to go around even after the music stopped! Beautiful Venue/Grounds – Check! Between the waterfalls, gardens, and our beautifully landscaped [...]

A Picture Perfect August Wedding in the Outdoor Ballroom

What a stunning August day, picture perfect if you will! The sun was shining, and there were enough clouds in the sky to give the perfect light for photographing Megan and Brian’s wedding. Thank you to Montclair Studio for capturing all of their special moments. (http://www.montclairstudio.com/ ) The entire day was filled with so much love and laughter. It all started with a beautiful ceremony nestled between our Outdoor Ballroom and Hole 13. Panoramic views of our private golf course made a picturesque back drop for the couples’ wedding vows. The ceremony concluded with a symbolic releasing of Doves. With ample seating on our terrace, the couples’ closest family and friends enjoyed an hour of cocktails and an abundance of butler passed and stationery hors d’oeuvres. Our cascading waterfalls and gardens created [...]

Why you should select an inclusive wedding venue

Save Time. Save Money. Stress Less. Enjoy More with an inclusive wedding venue. Prior to listing all the positives to choosing an inclusive wedding venue to host your wedding, let me first paint a little picture in your head… Imagine this. You have just signed a contract with what you thought was the perfect wedding venue. You are madly in love with it, and just cannot wait until your wedding day. Everything is going to be flawless, and you barely have to do anything else, because the place is just so perfect. Fast forward to one month later when you really start planning. You think to yourself, “What is included at this wonderfully, perfect venue?” The answer: The building. Yup, that’s it. Just the building. Now you have to contract outside vendors [...]

Booking an Outdoor Ballroom vs. A Tented Wedding

Wedding Perfection Under the Tent A specific expression transforms a guest’s face when they walk into your tent wedding. Their eyes immediately gaze upward at the perfectly draped white pleated ceiling.  They grin as a cool breeze rustles in from the open sides, and the fresh air is filled with a combination of your sweet floral centerpieces and the intoxicating scent of cocktail hour specialties.  When the conditions are warm and airy, the sun is shining, and the signature cocktail is all you need to feel refreshed, the look on their face is a blissful endorsement of your venue choice.   Rewind.  Now picture it, and it’s raining. Or it’s humid.  Or it’s freezing, and the cool breeze is actually wind, knocking down your hydrangeas and blowing out the floating [...]

Do Yourself A Favor

By Krista Lewis Events Coordinator West Hills Country Club One of the most controversial topics in weddings today… wedding favors. Do you pay hundreds of dollars to monogram stemless wine glasses? Do you spend endless hours tying bows around boxes of chocolates? Or do you donate to a local charity? The ideas are endless and the time put in can be exhausting! We have seen them all. From the shot glasses, to the photo booth picture frames, to the personalized candles. Photo Credit: The Ramsdens They are cute, personal, and a sweet thank you for the friends and family who helped you celebrate your big day. But, we have also seen too many of these left behind. The day after, the newlyweds always ask us why there are so many [...]

Your Wedding is on What Day of the Week?!

By Taylor Checchia When you get a wedding invitation in the mail, you are almost always expecting for it to be taking place on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. But not anymore!! Say goodbye to traditional, and say hello to weekday weddings! Thursdays, are the new Friday! Hosting your wedding on a Thursday is past the point of, “becoming popular.” It is now a thing. It’s part of the norm!! Thursdays, and weekdays in general, are the new normal for many reasons. Here are just a few: Cost Many venues offer midweek pricing, which is significantly less than weekend pricing. Nothing changes; you get everything you would normally get on a weekend, but sometimes for a quarter of the price…sometimes even more of a discount than that! Upgrades Selecting a less expensive [...]

Springing Into Wedding Season

By Krista Lewis Three words you will always hear the West Hills team say; we LOVE Spring! That feeling of the sun kissing your skin with a cool breeze brushing by, the sight of the flowers blooming and the fresh smells that accompany  it, the butterflies in your stomach when you wake up to the birds chirping…it doesn’t get much better than that. That is why it is a “no-brainer” when you ask us our favorite time of year for weddings. The colors are unbelievable. Soft oranges and purples with pops of bright pinks and yellows.  This makes for awesome wedding photos!! Plus, it’s not too hot and not too cold! The temperatures are just right. Kids are always excited when they finally get to go outside and play, so why can’t [...]
