River Garden Weddings, Vista, California - Event Venue Spotlight

Vista Wedding Photography Tom Keene The Affordable Wedding Photographer
Having just completed our list of top garden style venues, we remembered we had yet to write a review of the venue.
I must admit this venue has left an impression on me. The owners clearly love weddings and have strived to make this the perfect venue. As I recall there are no less than 3 waterfalls on the property and it is completely surrounded by an enormous wire and rock wall that keeps you in the event space and lowers the sound level for its neighbors. This venue is entirely outside and still has large canopy for shade during your ceremony as well as a covered glass and metal reception area that you just have to see to believe.
No detail is left to chance. From the entrance to the staging area for the wedding party and the beautiful sound barrier walls, I really wish I had more time there with this couple. I did not see the getting ready rooms connected to the main building but everything else was flawless. The wedding ceremony location can be in mixed light, so make sure you have a photographer who knows what they are doing.
There is ample parking for the venue but make sure you know where you are going as some navigation apps will leave you short by a whole street or so, just keep going and you will see find the entrance. This is one of the nicest and focused location staffs I have ever had the luck to work with.
Take a look at some of our captures at this wedding venue below.
