Between Ventura’s sandy beaches and wooded hillsides lie acres of farmland, where everything from strawberries to snapdragons flourishes in the pleasant climate. Such an appealing locale has naturally attracted many golf courses to the area, and the first public course in the county is the San Buenaventura, whose manicured greens, billowing treetops and small-town friendliness have been courting customers for decades. Sound like a picture-perfect setting for a special event? It is, and Wedgewood Ventura, which shares the scenic grounds with the golf course, not only ensures your celebration will unfold effortlessly, they’ll do it all for a reasonable price.
The banquet center is perched on a gentle rise overlooking the sweeping fairways and the Ceremony Rose Garden just below. In the garden, palm trees encircle a splash of lawn, and star jasmine and rose blossoms adorn the air with their sweet perfume. The bride begins her entrance by descending the stairway from the center’s banquet room. Then she glides along the wedding aisle to her groom, who waits in front of an arched wooden pergola. You can add embellishments like tulle and flowers, but with the rolling greens and the pretty landscaping little else is needed.
The same is true of the banquet room itself, designed with sophisticated touches that contribute to a sense of classic comfort and ease. Just inside the room, a blazing fireplace provides warmth. Guests have a birds-eye view of the golf greens, thanks to windows that run the length of the banquet room. There’s nothing like a serene vista to help folks unwind, except maybe a champagne toast in the Lounge next to the foyer. Here an old-fashioned built-in bar makes your cocktail hour a breeze. Then, when it’s time to dine, guests adjourn to tables set in the center of the banquet room. The wedding party takes the place of honor on a raised level opposite the windows.
A built-in dance floor separates diners from a stage area, a prime spot for a formal head table or to showcase the band. However, most of Wedgewood’s patrons prefer the services of their dynamic DJs, who hold court from a state-of-the-art sound booth, discreetly styled to blend in with the rest of the room. These outgoing songsters expertly MC your reception, and entertain with a customized song list. And here’s the kicker—this service is included as part of your wedding package, along with a choice of wedding invitations, floral centerpieces and engraved champagne flutes.
With a variety of packages to fit most budgets and tastes, Wedgewood seems to have thought of everything (so you won’t have to!). The popular Gold Package, for example, offers extra goodies like personalized cocktail napkins, a deluxe wedding cake selected from a premier local bakery and a wedding night hotel room for the bridal couple. Upgrade to the Millennium Package, and treat your guests to custom uplighting, chocolate-covered strawberries and a real-time photo booth!
Wedgewood Ventura has one more specialty offering: They’ll arrange your wedding ceremony right on the beach. Their chosen spot is just 10 minutes away on a stretch of coastline adjacent to Ventura Harbor. The staff will arrange chairs for your guests right on the sand, facing a wooden arch with the rolling waves as the backdrop. Then, while family and friends head back to the banquet center for cocktails, the newlyweds have some time to capture scenic wedding photos before the reception. Wedgewood Buenaventura is clearly user friendly, and the staff truly accommodating—all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the day.
