Californos is a family owned business and we work hard to be the best at what we do! This week, that's Valentine's Day and hosting private events as well as concerts and parties! It's a full week. As we share the news, that local brides have reviewed Californos positively, resulting in an award on a popular bridal welbsite, we are humbled by the praise. All we can say is that we can't do it without the brides who find Californos, book Californos and later review the venue after hosting a turn-key reception with us! Thanks to Sarah & Greg, who sent us an album of pictures today and on of the best captures their epic dance party below!
Choosing a venue is likely the single most important decision to make when planning a wedding day with your closest friends and family. The location of the venue, along with the look and size of the ballroom seem to be a few of the most common criteria to consider. However, services, reviews, accessibility are going to be extremely important to a bride and groom planning a reception. More important than the cost itself would be the value. What do you get for the cost of your venue and will that streamline or complicate things as you move forward in your planning. For example, Californos provides a wedding venue with an all-inclusive package. Pricing includes a wonderful meal, open bar and the actual event venue with complimentary rentals, expert staffing, crisp linens and more! That's why we call Californos a turn-key reception venue. Now you can hire a good DJ or band and get the party started, like Sarah & Greg did with their party at Californos Westport on July 8, 2018! Happy Planning! Tours of Californos are available throughout the week by appointment.
