Finding the Perfect Wedding Venue

Congratulations! You’re engaged! Odds are, one of the first things you’re going to do as a newly engaged couple is search for your dream wedding venue. Since most of your budget will likely go to your wedding venue, you want to make sure you’re getting the biggest bang for your buck. After you’ve chosen what location you want as the backdrop of your big day (forest, beach, lake, city, etc.), you’ll want to consider what each venue in that area offers. Below, we’ve outlined a few things you should look for. And remember, take your time! Trust us, it’s worth it to do your research.


The location of your wedding sets the entire scene for your big day. You want to make sure that the venue has various picturesque spots for your photographer(s) to take you. SkyPark Weddings allows couples to escape into the forest for gorgeous photos and has a unique mountain setting unlike any other in Southern California.

Catering & Wedding Planning

Almost all wedding venues require you to cater within the venue, and if they don’t, they’re going to charge you an arm and a leg for outside catering. SkyPark Weddings has teamed up with Graystone Catering as our exclusive caterer and wedding planner. Yes, we said wedding planner. Not only do you get a great team of wedding coordinators on the day of your wedding at SkyPark Weddings, Graystone Catering is there to help plan your wedding from beginning to end.

Bridal Suite

Some venues offer a Bridal Suite for getting ready and SkyPark’s Bridal Suite is unlike any other. With designer touches and a warm and inviting color palette, Getting Ready photos are sure to be amazing!  The Bridal Suite features six makeup stations for your bridal party, a gorgeous Bride’s Room, a private bath, living room, and private kitchen.


It’s always nice to keep you and your guests from traveling between the ceremony and the reception. If you’re set on a religious ceremony or you’ve always imagined an outdoor wedding, SkyPark offers the possibility of both. After your intimate ceremony, stroll over to our gorgeous Whispering Pines Terrace to celebrate with friends and family! Keep in mind, some venues will charge you to park your guests through valet. SkyPark Weddings offers free parking for you and your guests.

Who hasn’t dreamed of a beautiful sunset wedding? We sure have! What many couples forget to consider when looking for a venue, is how much light is offered onsite. Especially for an outdoor wedding, some establishments might require the bride and groom to provide their own lighting, which can send you way over your budget. Luckily, SkyPark Weddings offers romantic string lighting at the reception site as well as lighting throughout the property so that guests can safely find their way out after a long night.

You want to make sure that your dream venue can hold the amount of people you want to invite. Whether you’re having an intimate wedding or a huge celebration with all of your family and friends, SkyPark Weddings has plenty of room for either with a maximum 250 guest capacity. Aside from a wonderfully serene Creekside ceremony, most couples opt for an outdoor reception surrounded by the majestic mountains. Others tend to gravitate towards a tented wedding, which is a foolproof plan for California’s unpredictable weather and can be transformed with some draping. Tented Wedding are offered in the month of November at SkyPark Weddings.
