Planning a wedding without the assistance of a wedding planner can get a little hectic and stressful at times, as many of you brides to be will know. This is why when we first met Cindy at the University Club, we knew this was the venue for us. She was very knowledgable in all things wedding related. She is also very personable and friendly. She gave us examples/pros and cons for every option and let us decide what will work best for our wedding. She patiently answered our countless questions and went along with changes so easily. She was there on the day of the wedding to ensure everything went smoothly. All her vendor recommendations were terrific. We could not ask for more- Cindy went completely above and beyond. The prices are very competitive and you will not be disappointed if you decide to hold your wedding here.

Our wedding was on November 9th, 2013. We had our reception here. We took pictures out by the gazebo, in the beautiful garden area, cocktail hour in the library, and dinner in the dining room. We had close to 160 guests and it was the perfect fit! Our guest raved about the location. What I love about University Club:
-Doesn't feel closed in (huge windows in dining area)
-Working with Cindy is awesome, she is so helpful and knowledgeable, she was never pushy, made us feel comfortable
-Great outside space
-All inclusive (except for chair, cake, flowers)
-Private parking lot (no valet, etc.)
-Great prices for what you get!
-Food was awesome!
I will recommend this place to all of my friends. As a lifelong resident of Newport Beach, we searched all around, and this venue blows the others out of the water, perfect fit for us!

Many people left our wedding saying it was the best ever!
This was in part due to having a great venue and a great coordinator included (Cindy Lee) to match it. The location is nice for the summer (breezy and with plenty of trees), and the external vegetation as well as the internal built in decoration helps you save on decoration costs.
Food was great! We did multiple tastings and we were treated well.
Most of all, you need a coordinator! And you got the best one here included with the rent. Cindy Lee stays on top of things, pays attention to details and makes your life easier from the beginning by having a list of good vendors.
