0.5/5.0
I had my ceremony at the Orange County Mining Company on 7/19/14 and it ended up being the biggest mistake having my wedding there. We had the ceremony at 6 and purposely planned on being late because there is not a bridal room to get ready and I didn't want guests to run into me in the parking lot. But as soon as I got there I was constantly threatened that they were going to play the exit music at 7 even if we were in the middle of our vows because they had an event scheduled. It turned out that there "event" was the owner's sons birthday party. They started rolling out the bridal party even though not everyone was there including my dad who was in the bathroom. I was pleading with Angela to stop rushing it as she kept pushing the guests into the aisle when my maid of honor helped my dad out of the bathroom. It ended up being fine time wise and there was absolutely no reason to make me feel the way they did; it was a complete nightmare. They told me they would make sure the bridal party was taken care of with drinks and food while we took pictures but no one was around at all. They also said they would set up the tables for us but the day before they told me someone needed to come set it up if I didn't have a wedding planner. The food is usually good but that night the chicken was completely dry. They even dared to ID guests for the food, even the best man! The dj and staff were not at all in sync, for example, we would be standing around the cake while the music we picked out was being played and the server was out getting the utensils for ten minutes! The florist provided an extra bouquet for the cake toss and it was no where to be found during the event so I had to throw my $300 bouquet. WORST OF ALL: the next day we realized that nine cards were stolen, a value of about $900 since we requested cash. The GM supposedly interviewed all of the staff but I have no idea how that would help at all. They said that that is all they could do and they didn't even know wh

We recently had our wedding ceremony and reception at Orange County Mining Co and I must say we could not have picked a better venue, our wedding was AMAZING!! Everything from the very beginning stages of planning up to our wedding day was efficient and easy. Angela helped to organize everything, and she was extremely helpful in accommodating our special requests and answering all of our questions. The great thing about OCMC is their package deals, and I highly recommend going platinum (includes 2 hr open bar, flower table arrangements, cake, table linens, etc). The prices are EXTREMELY reasonable for an OC wedding, and you cannot beat that view. Our guests are still raving about the food, service, and location! Jose was our catering manager the day of our wedding and boy did he take care of us, always making sure we had our drink of choice on hand and that all our needs were met. Overall I would highly recommend OCMC for your wedding. Staff is extremely helpful and professional and will make sure your event is exactly how you want it down to every last detail. Thank you OCMC for making our wedding a night we will never forget!!

Review for Orange County Mining Co

If you want an amazing wedding, even if you are on as budget, you want it with the Orange County Mining Co. Not only do they have amazing food, they also exceed in Customer Service.I had the pleasure of working with Angela and Christin for my wedding. Angela is very friendly and extremely helpful, as was Christin as well.  Both of them helped me so many times with questions that I had about the wedding that didn't even pertain to them. They go above and beyond what they are supposed to offer. The fees they charge are unbelievably fair. I will say you should always go platinum with them, the perks are worth it. What I love most is that they treated me and my small wedding as they would a large wedding. I didn't feel any less important because my wedding was small. The day of the wedding they made my venue look amazing. No one even knew I was a bride on a budget. They helped with all of my concerns and always updated me on any problems that may have arisen. The truth is that there were little to no issues at all. They made my wedding experience an enjoyable one. I planned my wedding by myself and it helped to have a venue that does everything for you.  I could go on and on about how much I loved this venue and the staff. My wedding day was perfect. I don't have any complaints but I do have high recommendations to use them for your wedding. Every one of my guests enjoyed themselves and raved about the food. Thank you so much Orange County Mining Co. You made one of the happiest days of my life one of the best experiences,  if that makes sense :)

HORRIBLE...event planner was the most negative abrasive person I met. Did not live up to their contract. My family had to come an hour before the reception to set up the tables only to find mice feces on the tables and not enough chairs set up for my guests. So very disappointed as I was told there was no issue they couldn't handle and they would make my wedding reception wonderful. Don't go there....

Thank you to the Orange County Mining Company! The OCMC came through when the Orange Hill Restaurant almost made a nightmare out of our wedding. With just two days notice, the OCMC gave us and our families a beautiful wedding reception and everyone associated with them should be highly recommended. It was just the perfect theme for us, and the view is spectacular. We will be back for dinner on our anniversary!

When I found OCMC, I was blown away with how great their pricing is. I was looking for a rustic venue, and they fit the bill. I was very impressed at my wedding. The banquet hall was setup beautifully, and the staff were very attentive to me and my husband. We recieved a lot of compliments. I would definitely use OCMC for another event.
