Nestled on an exceptionally private, tree lined grounds and announced by grand palm trees, the estate evokes the stately elegance of the Beverly Hills and Palm Beach mansions, right here in the heart of Orange County.
The mansion’s grounds rival those of any world-class resort with a pavilion style pool house, bar, Tuscany gazebo and breathtaking pool and spa. The expansive terraced hillsides of lush mature landscaping create a haven of privacy and seclusion.

LOOK NO FURTHER! I recently had my wedding at the Venetian Mansion through VIP Events and Weddings and it was everything I dreamed of and more! Words cannot adequately express my gratitude to Diana Tran and Sanya Strelec for their friendliness, poise and enthusiasm in the planning of our wedding. They're the ultimate coordinators, handling every detail right down to perfectly straight linens and beautifully folded napkins. As a bride, you tend to ask questions as they occur to you, and therefore become a texting freak! They handled every question thrown their way with the utmost patience and made me feel like a priority no matter how busy they were with their other weddings. They made the entire process feel personal and intimate, like friends planning it together rather than clients and vendors working together. And the venue was to die for! It was elegant, romantic and classy - not an easy combo to achieve! The entire event flowed from start to finish without a single hiccup, and its all due to Diana and Sanya - their organization and professionalism allowed me and my husband to enjoy our wedding stress-free, and for that, we are forever grateful. Thank you, Diana and Sanya! Robby and I will never forget you.

Il Palazzo Mansion was our dream wedding venue in every sense. We looked for over a year for the perfect estate, and no other venue came even close to the VIP Mansion. We are so happy that we chose VIP to help us with our wedding. She works with the most incredible vendors. Our flowers were more beautiful than I ever imagined, and our guests cannot stop talking about our food and pastries. Thank you Sanya & VIP for all of your help with our special day :)

I don't usually take the time to review anything online....not my style! But in this case, I felt compelled to do so. It isn't often that you have the opportunity to work with people like Sanya. Sanya coordinated every detail of our wedding, and to be honest, as much as my fiancee and I both loved the venue (Shangri-La Estate in Temecula), Sanya made our wedding seem like a walk in the park. She handled everything professionally, and timely, and followed through on all of the assurances that she made from day one. I for one was shocked how flawless the entire process and and the day-of wedding details were handled. The term "groomzilla" was used often by my fiancé (and Sanya) in the beginning (as I tend to be a bit of a control and detail freak), but in the end, our ceremony and reception were everything we, and our family envisioned it would be.

We will be recommending this company to all of our friends, and my sister has already begun the process of viewing some of their other locations in Orange County with Sanya for her wedding next summer.

Cheers!

Thank you to the entire VIP team for giving me THE best day of my life!!! I loved how everything turned out and really appreciated how hard all your staff worked. It was really hot and I felt bad for everyone "slaving away" outside setting up my ceremony, but everything was absolutely perfect! And yes, sanya, I noticed all the details! :) My flowers turned out way better than I envisioned and everyone is still talking about the delicious food!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the amazing professional job you all did!

My wedding was AMAZING and beyond my wildest dreams!! My friends and family are still talking about it! We were very lucky and blessed to have found VIP (the most gorgeous private estate that could not be more perfect for a wedding) and to have had the world's best coordinator! ;) Sanya and her team impressed us from day 1 and even after the wedding! I feel like she became part of our family and will remain friends with Sanya for many years to come. My wedding day went without a hitch! The venue and decor was even more beautiful than I anticipated, the flowers (by Tustin Florist) looked amazing, DJ Julian Miranda was right on and the food was definitely high end! The only thing I can complain about is that it all went by too fast and I wish I could relive my wedding day over and over again!
If you are lucky enough to be able to book this venue and Sanya's team for your wedding, then my only advice is to enjoy every second of it and leave all the stress and work to the professionals! Lol

Sanya and her team were so gracious and so incredibly helpful! I don't know how I would have been able to have such a beautiful wedding (and with no mishaps!) without her! Palazzo mansion was more perfect than I could have imagined and everything came together flawlessly :) I used all her vendors and the food was delicious (all my family and friends said it was the best) and the florist, Henry, was so helpful throughout the whole process! I would recommend using VIP to anyone who is getting married and looking for a mansion venue.

Perfection!! Saying "something has to go wrong on your wedding day" did not apply to us, thanks to Sanya and the whole VIP team! I'm in my last year of residency so my time for wedding planning was very limited. The VIP team thought of every detail and did all the work. I just got to do the fun stuff and didn't have to stress about anything. If you want a truly stress-free experience, than look no further!!
The mansion was beyond beautiful - nothing quite like it and I searched for months!
Their vendors were ALL first class and surpassed our expectations! Kudos to Jason's catering and Tustin Florist!
I can't thank Sanya enough for everything she did for us! My husband appreciates her honesty and making sure we did not go over our budget!

To all the new brides out there: you won't go wrong if you book the VIP venue and their amazing staff for your wedding! You will be 100% satisfied and I can guarantee that with confidence after seeing first hand what they are capable of!

The VIP Mansion is as luxurious and extravagant as they come! We knew this was the place for us as soon as we pulled up to see it the very first time. We saw a lot of places and none of them were as nicely laid out as the VIP mansion.

The VIP Mansion is as luxurious and extravagant as they come! We knew this was the place for us as soon as we pulled up to see it the very first time.

Wowwww! What else can I say? Our venue, a private estate in San Clemente, was breathtaking in every way. At first, my family had trepidations about hosting our wedding in a "non-traditional" setting....as they always envisioned a ballroom or hotel setting. My parents are very old-school Europeans and wanted a church wedding followed by a reception at the St Regis or Ritz. But after some heavy negotiations my fiance and I convinced our parents to come and view the estate after seeing the photos on vipeventsandweddings.com Let's just say it was "love at first sight"...both with the venue, and our coordinator Sanya.
The Estate was beautiful...and spacious enough to host both our Ceremony, Cocktail hour, and Reception in several different areas of the Estate. Talk about one-stop shopping!! And to make it even easier, Sanya handled every aspect of our planning...right up to the Big Day. She was soooo sweet, but business minded and organized at the same time. We were concerned as we had two ceremonies planned...one traditional, and one smaller family-only event, but with Sanyas help, everything down to the last dance went off seamlessly.
We would highly recommend Sanya and any of the VIP locations to anyone wanting a turn-key, stress-free wedding. Thank you VIP!!!

My wedding at the VIP Mansion was just perfect! Everything went smoothly and stress free. We looked at a bunch of venues we were considering for our wedding and we picked this one because Sanya and her team was just phenomenal and made everything easy for us and the place was just gorgeous. It was one of those things, everything fell into place and we had a beautiful ceremony. Much thanks to the VIP team for making our day truly special!

Ok, so first off, MAGICAL wedding! This was the perfect venue I could ever dream of and seeing it filled with all of our friends and family was just beyond beautiful. It was a dream come true :) I'm still getting phone calls from friends talking about our wedding day and how much fun everyone had and our pictures are just perfect, like our memories!

All of our vendors were top notch, the food and service was everything we had hoped it would be. It's always hard to please everyone at your wedding, but we had nothing but compliments from everyone! I can't believe how smooth everything went!

To anyone looking for the perfect venue, this it it! The VIP team is truly like no other, I really felt like they went over and beyond all of our expectations, and that's very rare and we are forever grateful for making our special day extra special for us! Thank you guys so much!

I just cannot say enough wonderful things about my daughter's wedding! VIP made it a very special day for us. Here were some of my favorites in no particular order:

1. The wedding planner (Sanya) was a delight. She was thoughtful, organized,and had excellent suggestions.
2. The food was remarkable. All our guests commented on the good quality.
3. The venue was stunning. It was perfect for a wedding event.
4. Music was beautiful during the ceremony and at the reception as well.
5. I (mother of bride) did not worry one single time about who was doing what during the event. I just sat back and enjoyed it knowing that VIP had the event organized.

My fiancé and I got engaged and decided to get married three and a half months later so my brother could attend the wedding (he was deploying to Afghanistan in the following month). I had no idea where to begin and thought it was hopeless. I found Venues in Paradise on The Knot and email an inquiry late at night. When I woke up in the morning I already had a response from Sanya Mitrovik saying she would be delighted to help me plan my wedding. Sanya is not only prompt, exceptional and talented, but she’s a joy to be around! She said that she could easily plan this wedding in three and a half months since she planned one recently that was only 9 days! She has done so many weddings that she foresees issues that you could never imagine. I trusted her with every idea and recommendation. My fiancé’s father passed away a few days before our wedding and Sanya was so thoughtful that she had a picture frame engraved with his name for our ceremony. The vendors that Venues in Paradise uses are top notch. The catering company had the best food I have ever had at the wedding and the flowers were to die for! Our guests are still calling our wedding the wedding of the century! I am happy to personally speak with anyone that wants to use Sanya as their wedding planner. I have already recommended this company and Sanya to all of my girlfriends! Best of luck on your wedding planning!

My name is Mihaela Ardelean, I got married on September 29, 2012 and I would like to share with all of you that I am very happy I choose Venues In Paradise for the most important day of my life. I can’t give enough praise to Sanya Mitrovic and the entire Venues In Paradise staff for making my wedding day the most amazing day of my life!!! Where do I begin? Initially, I wanted to find all my own vendors (I thought it would save me money) and book a venue which allowed me to bring them. However, after touring a couple of beautiful mansions with VIP, Sanya told me about their preferred vendors and explained why it was important to go with the reputable vendors who had experience working TOGETHER and at my venue. I did lots of research, met and tried a few of them and decided to book their all-inclusive package! I am so glad I did – they all took care of everything and made my whole planning process exciting and easy. The VIP vendors were very accommodating, flexible and talented! All the appointments were setup for me and Sanya coordinated all the vendors and communicated with them about the timeline, parking instructions etc. IF there were any issues on the day of my wedding – none of us knew! Everyone always had a smile on their face, they worked hard to make all of us happy (which at times wasn’t easy, since we had a pretty large wedding party) and the entire day was a PERFECTION and 110% success! My guests can’t stop talking about it (they loved the food – they said it was the best food they ever had) and were beyond impressed with the beauty of the mansion and how well organized the entire day was. To all the new brides out there: enjoy not just your wedding day, but also the planning leading up to it! I highly recommend you book one of VIP’s gorgeous estates and if you are lucky enough to get Sanya as your coordinator – you will be in great hands! Good luck!

What a gorgeous location for a wedding!! I knew upon getting engaged that Palazzo Mansion was at the tip top of my list for wedding venues, it took one look and we were sold! I couldn't dream something better. The staff was great to work with so flexible and accommodating to our needs and wants. And the food, oh the food, it was so unlike typical wedding fare. It was delicious, I ate my entire plate, no not very lady like but I just couldn’t not!!! Would definitely recommend this to any bride looking for a unique, gorgeous one of a kind wedding venue!

We had a beautiful wedding that exceeded our every expectation. Sanya was very professional and flexible in handling our contract and vendor arrangements. We couldn't have pulled off such a stress-free event without all of Jamie's hard work to keep everyone on track including coordinating all aspects of the wedding from the first day of planning up to the day of our event. When needed they were very supportive and flexible in making sure all of our needs were met. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality event.

I love absolutely everything about the Palazzo Mansion. The mansion is a bit secluded which made it the perfect venue for my wedding. My guests had the opportunity to walk around the mansion and explore all of its locations. My family and friends were all impressed with the gorgeous location and the wonderful planning of my wedding planner, Sanya at Venues in Paradise. Venues in Paradise took all of my wedding ideas and transformed them into the most beautiful and unique wedding I could have imagined. Sanya paid close attention to every single detail and made sure my wedding was exactly how I pictured it to be. Thank you very much Venues in Paradise for a day I will never forget. I will definitely recommend Sanya at VIP to anyone that wants a wedding they will always remember.

I had my Wedding ceremony and reception at this mansion and it was a perfect moment! The estate itself was gorgeous and there were so many amazing places for photos. The views were breathtaking. We got a lot of incredible pictures and memories out of it and all of our guests were sooo impressed, they still talk about our wedding! I felt like a King with my Queen at my side. It was truly memorable.

The Venues In Paradise team and the staff was very helpful and friendly. I have to say a special thank you to Sanya Mitrovic from Venues In Paradise who was with us every step of the way! I don't know how things would have turned out without her… She eased all our worries and with the importance of our big day we had a lot of them :) She made sure everything went smoothly and did a lot of hand-holding and was always there for us. She was very prompt and on top of every detail, and that made the whole planning process stress-free and easy for us! That was a big part of our Special Day.

I don’t leave many reviews, but after talking to some of my friends that recently got married and hearing their stories I realized that we really lucked in with Sanya and the VIP team and wanted to let everyone else know about this gem. I can't say enough how much easier and better every detail of our wedding was with Sanya's help! I highly recommend Venues In Paradise – they did an amazing job on my wedding day and helped so much with all the planning leading up to our big day. Thanks guys!

Palazzo Mansion did such a phenomenal job. They made sure the headtable (that’s all I can speak of since I just wanted to eat!) had everything they needed. We made a change to the timeline the day of the wedding and they were right there with us ready to move dinner up. We told the coordinator Sanya that morning we were eliminating speeches and she made it so that nobody even realized they were gone. They packed up the food and other goodies for us to take home so we had food that evening and didn’t have to cook that day. Everything was so fantastic and I never had to visit the bar!

When my husband and I got engaged we looked at a number of venues near and far and ultimately decided to go with Venues in Paradise for several reasons. 1.) The venue locations are all stunning and met my requirements of simple, elegant and comfortable. I wanted something that was beautiful, but wanted a feeling of home and intimacy that you can't get at most hotels or other commercial venues. 2) I wanted as little stress as possible. I had worked in the wedding industry for 15 years doing everything from selling the venue to the actual catering and wedding planning and I knew from experience that weddings can be a lot of stress, but they don't have to be. If you have solid vendors, a good location and a great team, you can have a flawless wedding. Venues in Paradise, particularly Sanya provided all of this. She was a pleasure to work with and truly enjoys what she does. She treats every bride like they are her only customer and she also treats all of her vendors well, something you can see in how they respond to her. I did not have my wedding at this particular venue, although I have seen it and would recommend it. But beyond the venues, I would recommend Venues in Paradise to any bride looking for her dream wedding. I have nothing but wonderful memories from my wedding day, from the cake which was amazing even a year later on our anniversary, to the stunning flowers (Tustin Florist) to the catering which was wonderful. I can't thank Sanya and Venues in Paradise enough for making my wedding day a truly memorable one.

After a few speed bumps in the road with our previous vendor we came across Palazzo Mansion and instantly fell in love with their venue. After our first meeting with Sanya, it was clear she knew how to take care of us which was all we really wanted was to be heard & get our idea’s across and have them come to fruition. She was amazing with our situation & instantly went into problem solving mode to see what she could do to help us. By the end of our meeting, & few tears of joy, and a HUGE sigh of relief we knew that Palazzo Mansion was going to be the perfect venue to become husband & wife. Leading up to our event our event coordinator, Sanya, was there for us in every possible way. She helped answer any questions we had, quickly replied to any emails and gave us the confidence we needed to know that everything would be seamless for our wedding day. The day of our wedding, things couldn't have gone smoother! Sanya really under promised and over delivered & I had an amazing time!!! Your wedding day should be a breeze and the reception of your dreams. And it was…it really was beautiful. If there were any hiccups in the day we would have never know because everything was so smooth and exciting that we really did have the time of our lives!!! Thank you Palazzo Mansion & Sanya for such an amazing Wedding!

While planning my only daughter’s destination wedding, we toured many venues and were a bit underwhelmed by most. Then we came across Venues In Paradise and met one of their coordinators, Sanya Mitrovic. She was such a delight to work with – from the very moment we met her until now, even few months after the wedding! She is the most genuine, hard working, dedicated and patient person we’ve come across! We were worried about planning a large wedding from another state, but Sanya and her team took care of every detail and we actually quite enjoyed the planning process and the wedding day! Everything turned out even better than my daughter and our family ever imagined! The flowers were gorgeous, food was first class, the entire staff was very polite and helpful and they all worked very hard to ensure that the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all went smoothly! We got so many compliments on the day of and our guests are still calling us and telling us that my daughter’s wedding was THE BEST WEDDING they have EVER been to! I am only sorry that it’s all over – I really enjoyed it very much and cannot thank Sanya and Venues In Paradise for making sure everything went perfectly. I recommend them to anyone who wants a unique, personal, stress-free, gorgeous and fun wedding celebration!

She is the most genuine, hard working, dedicated and patient person we’ve come across! We were worried about planning a large wedding from another state, but Sanya and her team took care of every detail and we actually quite enjoyed the planning process and the wedding day! Everything turned out even better than my daughter and our family ever imagined! The flowers were gorgeous, food was first class, the entire staff was very polite and helpful and they all worked very hard to ensure that the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all went smoothly! We got so many compliments on the day of and our guests are still calling us and telling us that my daughter’s wedding was THE BEST WEDDING they have EVER been to! I am only sorry that it’s all over – I really enjoyed it very much and cannot thank Sanya and Venues In Paradise for making sure everything went perfectly. I recommend them to anyone who wants a unique, personal, stress-free, gorgeous and fun wedding celebration! Read less

I was very happy with my whole experience. The planning was so much fun, I got to pick everything and it was truly stress-free like they promised! I LOVED my wedding day! It was so beautiful and perfect! My guests and family were so impressed with the mansion, they all thought we spent a lot more money that we did. Thank you Sanya for pulling it off (even on our tighter budget)!! She was awesome, took care of everything and really paid attention to every detail and made sure I was happy and taken care of at all times!
I will recommend these guys to everyone!!!

As a wedding coordinator from NY, I am very familiar with the stresses and issues involved with planning a wedding...let alone your own! The biggest challenge in planning any wedding or event is deciding on the Perfect Venue! Needless to say, when we discovered Venues in Paradise (VIP) and the “one-stop shopping” venues and events they offered, the decision became clear.

From the beginning, our contact at VIP (Sanya Mitrovic) was professional and very prompt in all communications with us. To be honest, Sanya was a large part of the decision to go with VIP as she always got back to us within 24 hrs if we were not able to connect immediately (which was usually the case once we exchanged phone #'s). We were also considering 5-star ocean front hotel venues at the time, but were shocked by the lag times in communication. In every case, VIP's Venues were not only more affordable, with the same or bigger "wow factor" as the two resorts we considered, but most importantly we felt a real connection with Sanya, and she worked beyond our expectations at all times. The only concern we had was the lack of flexibility to bring in our own venders...especially the caterer as they can make or break and event.
However, after having met with the caterers offered by VIP, reading their reviews, and finally tasting with them, they quickly put all of our concerns to rest.

VIP had a lot of Venue choices (almost too many, as it was hard to decide after Sanya showed us some of the other options in their network). After finally opting for the Palazzo, we requested Sanya to carry the torch on the coordinating. She grabbed the torch and ran! The subsequent planning and day-of-coordination was professional and flawless. As a fellow coordinator, I had high expectations from her, and she delivered on all fronts. The only issues we had resulted from a few tardy relatives, and one wedding party guest. Beyond that, the venue was incredible (and perfectly transformed into our vision of a fairytale wedding venue), the food was sublime, and the guests ranted and raved about the overall experience. We are still receiving emails from guests about how much they loved the Venue, and how they loved feeling like "Rock Stars" for the day!

Thank you VIP, Palazzo, and Sanya for helping to transform our dream of a Fairytale wedding into reality!

Sanya of Venues in Paradise did a great job coordinating our wedding.
She was wonderful to work with, she was very accommodating in helping us stick to our budget and was responsive to all our needs. One issue that arose is the DJ (that comes with the venue) did not place speakers outside in the courtyard, so our guests outside (6 tables) could not hear the speeches. Not sure if this was the fault of the DJ completely or just a honest mistake from her staff.

All the included vendors did a great job, especially the caterer and the florist. We got many compliments on the food and flowers. Overall, our wedding planning process went smoothly, and my wife and I enjoyed our wedding day greatly. Our venue was incredibly beautiful, and all our guests were very impressed. I highly recommend Sanya and her VIP venues.

My wedding adventure started on 5-12-11 when my fiance proposed to me at disneyland. We set the date for 6-2-12 and started our hunt for a venue right away. My now-husband's sister found Venues in Paradise online and gave me Sanya's contact. I gave her a call, and from our very first conversation, she won me over. She was so sweet and seemed genuinely interested in her prospective bride. After my husband and I met with her, we knew she would be a keeper. Throughout the first few months, we continued searching and looked at several other venues, and contacted other coordinators. But in the end, we happily decided to go with venues in paradise, due to the truly unique venue, value, and especially Sanya.

There were a few hiccups along the way. Halfway into our planning process, the original venue we fell in love with (Las Palmas Mansion) fell through due to legal issues, due to no fault of their own. As distressing as this was, Sanya made sure we were ok. She immediately started showing us other mansions they have available to them. We picked the Venetian Mansion in San Juan Capistrano, which is NOT where this review promotes (I am not able to write a review for our particular mansion on this website). Because our wedding did not take place at the Palazzo mansion, I will focus the rest of my review on the service from VIP and Sanya.

Our package included the following: planning/coordinating service, full catering for 175 people (dual plated entrees, hor'dourves, 4 hour open bar), all tables/linens/chivalri chairs and other rentals, full DJ & florist service, unlimited access to mansion for >12 hours, shuttle from parking lot to mansion, 4-tiered cake, setup/cleanup/security/staff. Although this package did not come cheap, Sanya was able to tweak some numbers and get the final price within our budget. Because of the amazing grandeur of our venue, people definitely thought we paid more than we actually did. There were a few inescapable additional costs that came up during planning, such as labor for staff to hang up our paper lanterns, uplighting, added DJ equipment, floral costs, and additional serveware for our outside dessert vendor. These costs were somewhat unexpected, but nothing outrageous or unreasonable. Sanya was very honest and upfront with these additional costs, there were no "hidden fees" not explained in our contract.

We couldn't be more pleased with the vendors that VIP provided. We did not have a choice in these vendors: caterer/bar: Jason's, florist: Tustin Florist, DJ: Oda Entertainment, rentals: Signature rentals, cake: Pacific Bakery. Although there were a few minor issues with our Dj, which will be explained in a separate review, I can't stress enough how wonderful all of these vendors were! It was great having these vendors pre-selected for us. It saved us from the stress of having to choose from thousands of vendors out there. This kept costs down and assured we would receive a reliable & quality service/product.

Sanya was so sweet, accommodating, professional, and helpful during our whole year of planning. She was generally easy to get a hold of, and responded to all our questions & concerns in a thorough and professional manner. She made all our appointments for us (florist, rentals, food tasting) and accompanied us to every single one. She was in constant contact with all our outside vendors (photographer, videographer, photobooth, yogurtland, makeup/hair, musician, pastor, etc) and made sure everyone was on the same page and up to date with all changes. I must mention that she was not able to attend our wedding due to giving birth just a few days before our wedding!! Although my husband and I were super bummed she couldn't attend, she somehow managed to have our wedding run perfectly. She updated her assistant Jamie on EVERYTHING prior to the wedding, and made sure even the tiniest details would not be forgotten or lost. Her entire staff that day, including her husband Sean and assistant jamie dedicated themselves to make sure our wedding went without a hitch. Even though Sanya was stuck at home with her newborn, she still was constantly on the phone and making sure everything ran smoothly and we would enjoy a stress-free day. She even surprised me with an engraved cake cutting set, something I had mentioned to her we did not have.

in conclusion, I would recommend Sanya and her team at VIP to ANY brides out there looking for an amazing unique venue and personalized service. Sanya and VIP will work hard for you to make sure you have a beautiful wedding, even with a limited budget. If you are not totally in love with the Palazzo mansion (the venue promoted on this page), fear not, because VIP has several southern California venues in their arsenal, many of which are MORE grand and beautiful than this one. Pick up the phone and give Sanya a call, you will not be disappointed :)

Just had my wedding at Il Palazzo Mansion on Sept 7th. I found this venue through VIP Venues in Paradise and I fell in love with it the minute I stepped through its doors. The foyer has giant crystal chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and double stairs that lead to the 2nd floor. Unlike most private estates who only allow weddings to be set up outside of the mansion, Il Palazzo actually has plenty of different areas inside the house that are accessible to guests. They have a beautiful bridal suite and a game room for the boys to get ready at. There's also a nice lawn for the ceremony and a pool area with a fantastic view of the city.

Sanya and her team of vendors did an awesome job. I only had to book a few outside vendors on my own, the rest came with the venue which I found to be super convenient. I had last minute requests for decor and changes to my seating chart all the way up to my wedding day and Sanya took care of everything for me.

Unfortunately, as much as I love my venue and Sanya, my wedding day did not go smoothly. On the day of my wedding, the AC at the mansion was not functional. It felt like an 80 degrees oven the entire day. My guests were all covered in sweat and complaining about how uncomfortable they were. My immediate family stayed in my bridal suite the entire time because they refused to go downstairs into the heat. It was so warm that it made everything extremely stressful and distracting for me as a bride. We thought that the guests would be fully entertained during cocktail hour with the game room but they all ended up outside trying to catch a breeze. People also did not want to drink because it was just too hot. It just saddens me to hear this kind of feedback from guests after the wedding, but overall my wedding was beautiful and memorable thanks to a team of dedicated and hard-working people.
