Amazing, breathtaking, perfect wedding venue!!
Kate Helvestine, Wedding Date 10/27/2018
We had our wedding at Chaminade and it was PERFECT! Seriously, the most amazing wedding venue, the day felt like a dream. First off, the setting is breathtaking. Nestled in the Santa Cruz mountains, you get the feel of nature and views of the ocean, yet it is conveniently close to downtown Santa Cruz. They also make all parts of the wedding planning process so easy, from packages that include meals (buffet or plated), beverage packages, linens/tables/chairs etc., and they even include a wedding cake. A one-stop-shop for everything to create an amazing day all at reasonable prices. Special shout-out to Angela, our wedding coordinator, who made the entire day and planning process seamless and flawless! Angela worked with us for almost a year answering all our questions, accommodating our (difficult) requests, providing great recommendations based on her knowledge as a seasoned wedding coordinator at Chaminade, and coordinated every aspect of the actual wedding day. She is an angel and I think the wedding industry needs to make some clones of Angela.
Every single guest only had amazing things to say about the venue. Many of them were blown away at the beauty of Chaminade and how the entire wedding went so flawlessly (thanks to Angela). Further, many guests stayed at the resort and only had positive feedback to share about the rooms, check-in process, amenities, etc. We are so happy we picked Chaminade as our wedding venue because it lived up to all of our expectations and more. Thank you to Angela, the bar staff, and everyone at Chaminade who contributed to our perfect day at the perfect venue!
The Perfect Wedding
Cindy and Gene, married on 08/04/2018
Angela Edmond was our wedding planner/catering manager, she was fabulous, very organized, very professional, couldn't have been more helpful in all aspects of my daughter's wedding. The set up, ceremony, food, food service, the venue, all beautiful and great. The Bar service and Bar management fell short and could be greatly improved but as far as Angela's responsibilities I give her an A+, guest input was that it was one of the best and most enjoyable weddings they had ever attended. I highly recommend Chaminade with some improvement to the Bar Services.
