But from our very first phone call, Aaron and Mig at Californos were accommodating beyond our wildest dreams, and did everything within their power to help. With professional calm and the utmost efficiency, they offered us their ballroom (available due to a serendipitous cancellation), and took care of all the logistics—providing a piano for the musician, setting up the room for our unique needs, and lining up valet parking for our guests. In addition, the per-person pricing was refreshingly easy to understand, and Mig assured me that once I made basic selections for the buffet and bar, they would take it from there. And they did.
As Mig promised, all we had to do was show up the day of our wedding and everything was ready and waiting. Every bride hopes for that kind of experience, of course. But given our situation, being able to simply trust Californos to do a professional and thoughtful job--without any extra oversight by us-- saved me unfathomable time and stress. And best of all… in the end, you wouldn’t have even known that our reception was such a last minute production!
It was elegant and seamless, the food was delicious, the facility was ten times more beautiful and memorable than our original venue, and the guests absolutely adored it. I wish we could have gone with Californos from the beginning. But because of a fateful turn of events, the stars aligned and we were given the chance to work with this classy, professional, and exceedingly KIND group of people. Californos will always have a special place in our hearts because of that. Five stars is not enough."
