The Casino ballroom on Catalina is absolutely a knockout, but so many other things about the CIC staff proved to be disappointing. We started asking about wine selections in June but were told they would have to see what was available through their sources on the mainland. We called them repeatedly throughout the summer but never got a call back from their banquet manager. It wasn't until 10 days before the wedding that our CIC contact person got back to us and said our wine choices would be available, but then we discovered they were charging us restaurant prices, not retail. We had 7 cases of wine and Champagne left over (84 bottles) which they said they could not ship to us (we live in the midwest) because they didn't have a "license" to do so. We paid for 7 extra staff people to serve wine yet our table was never offered red wine with the main course, or another glass of white wine nor was water served even though we had requested it. There was a water glass on the table that went empty the whole night. I had the feeling that either the company was understaffed or not very professional. I have heard similar comments from two shop owners in Catalina. They said the company is not what it used to be a couple of years ago when it changed ownership. In spite of the problems, our guests said they had a wonderful three day vacation on the island and that the wedding was one of the best they have ever been to. The ceremony on Descanso Beach was absolutely gorgeous and the Casino ballroom is stunning. Stay away from the mezzanine area, however. It is quite noisy with 160 people and was quite warm even though it was a cool day outside. There is no air conditioning, they had not set up fans and there is not enough natural ventilation to make it comfortable. Also, the CIC chairs are wood with a magenta fabric, not a good color to work with unless you're doing a fall wedding. We rented white charivari chairs from a local vendor who is closing.

The Catalina Country Club did a wonderful job for us. We specifically have Jessica Marical, the even coordinator, to thank. She worked with us during our wedding planning process. Without a wedding planner to help us, she was our glue and she did her very best for us!! We are so grateful.

Overall I am very happy with the quality and service of Catalina Island Resort Services. The only problems I had were being asked the same questions over and over again, and The days schedule of events was sent to me, but at the event the schedule she had was not the updated one. I felt I had to constantly repeat myself! The food was excellent, and my cake was assembled perfectly. We had a wonderful day

My husband and I thank the Santa Catalina Island Company sincerely for helping us to pull off what we consider a perfect wedding! We were thrilled with everything. Everything. The food was outstanding, the setting was perfect (not just the lawn and stage and beach, but the tables and chairs and linens and bars and the service), the sound, the ceremony... it was all seamless and easy. We couldn't be more pleased. All of our guests enjoyed themselves thoroughly, as did we. In fact, three weeks later, we're still getting emails and phone calls about how good ALL of the food was, and how elegant and personal our ceremony and reception were.

We booked our wedding with SCIS in January 08 (highly recommended to book early) and from the beginning the reps that we dealt with through out the process were the best. Ultimately, our events (they handled our welcome reception as well) were flawless. The staff were super friendly, very helpful with recommendations and took care of every detail. Our guests have had nothing to comment on but the fantasticness of the whole experience. We think that the already marrieds are a bit jealous they didn't have their wedding there ;)

I highly recommend their Descanso Beach location to anyone!
