Wonderful Wedding Venue    posted 3/26/2014 (modified 3/27/2014)

We recently had our wedding and reception at The Parador. I fell in love with the beautiful architecture and loved the history behind the venue. It was early spring but the weather ended up being fantastic and we were able to utilize the gorgeous garden for our cocktail hour.

I can not rave enough about Rebekah with Behind the Bash, she is quite the pro at coordinating the event from start to finish. She helped keep the evening running smoothly, including a room flip! I originally had reservations about a room flip between the ceremony and reception, however Rebekah and her team made the process seamless. They were extremely helpful and made me feel at complete ease during the event.

I highly recommend this fantastic venue and wonderful Behind the Bash team! You will be in excellent hands with this seasoned crew.

Wedding Reception    posted 1/13/2014 (modified 1/14/2014)

I used this venue for my wedding reception and it was absolutely perfect! The day of wedding planner (Rebekah of Behind the Bash) told us what to do and when- we never had to worry about anything. Everything was executed above my standards as a bride.

Lovely venue!    posted 10/3/2013

We loved the atmosphere and style of the Parador. It is a beautiful venue, with high ceilings, a wonderful garden, and lots of space for our ~150 guests. The Parador doesn't need much decorating because it is a beautiful space on its own, and at night when the tea lights are twinkling it creates a special look. The Parador only works with one caterer, Behind the Bash, so once you book the venue you mostly deal with Behind the Bash people for all the other decisions (food plus decorations, etc). If you are looking for a unique venue for your wedding, The Parador is the perfect location!
