Quality of Service
This is a wonderful venue! I literally researched EVERY beach wedding location in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles County... and nobody compared to The Yellow Umbrella Co! Especially if your a DIY couple that wants a classic wedding on the beach :) We had about 150 guests and the ceremony and reception were absolutely unforgettable! Donna is the owner and she does a phenomenal job! She really listened to our desires and concerns... and we cannot say enough about her venue! It was truly incredible! The only thing I can say, is BE SPECIFIC about what you want and ASK LOTS OF QUESTION! The Yellow Umbrella Co. includes A LOT in their wedding packages, but make sure you are all on the same page so that everything goes smoothly. We planned a lot and had good communication, which really helped! It was beautiful, elegant, and more beautiful and memorable than we ever dreamed it would be! Also, we chose a lot of our own vendors, but this is not necessary if you are scheduling with Y.U.Co. Wedding packages include/ cover the ceremony & reception venue, wedding planning, DJ/MC services for 3 hours, event rentals (tables, chairs, arch, boardwalk, etc.), and a wedding cake!

The Yellow Umbrellas turned out to be a major disappointment on my wedding day. The venue coordinator, Donna, was so disorganized, that I ended up bringing in my own DOC about 3 weeks out from the wedding. Nothing seemed to be handled, and Donna was almost impossible to get a hold of. The contract is written in a way that is extremely vague, including phrases as "everything inclusive," except everything on the day of apparantly did not include cups or even ice for the bartender to serve my guests. She was super unhelpful, and in fact, did not even bother up showing up to the rehearsal the day before the wedding. She hires out the DJ and the catering, so you really do not have a choice with those two vendors, one of which (the DJ) also turned out to be quite a nightmare. She even started complaining to my DOC and my parents that the party was staying too late, even though we were within the hours stated on the contract. It is unfortunate, because this is one of the few places we looked at where it was easy to have a ceremony and reception, on a budget, directly on the sand. When all is said and done, I would never recommend this venue to anyone, who wants to stay sane.
