After entering through the wrought iron gate, guests can enjoy a walk through the front garden, which has a musical splashing fountain.

From start to finish the staff at Wedgwood was incredible. They helped us plan almost every detail of the wedding day with step by step instructions. We planned our wedding from Michigan and it could not have been any easier. The actual wedding day went incredibly smooth. Angelica was amazing! she was perfect we really couldn't be happier with the vendors they use and the wedding director(Angelica) was incredibly helpful. The DJ was awesome, the cake was amazing. the venue is beautiful. This was the first place we saw and we could have chose them without seeing another venue. Like i said everything from choosing Wedgwood until we left the venue after the reception was 100% perfect.
We got married here July 25th 2016, and it was the best day ever! I can't even begin to explain to you how incredible this venue is. We actually live in LA, but drove all the way out to Corona to have this spot. The building is gorgeous, inside and out. The high ceilings! That terrace view! The string lights! That sunset over the hills! Wedgewood Weddings boasts a "Stress Free Wedding", and while that may be a sliiiiight exaggeration (I mean, wedding planning can be pretty stressful!), they're not far off. From day one, everything is laid out clearly and simply in front of you. There's enough options to please everyone without being overwhelming. It's clear what's included in each package, what upgrades there are, what everything costs etc. Angelica, our Coordinator/New BFF, showed us what we could have within our budget. I never felt pushed into spending over what we had planned for. The options were there, she would give me honest opinions about things, but she was never pushy. It was about what we wanted as a couple for our special day. WW caters themselves and uses specific vendors for the DJ, floral and cake. The fact that you can't go for a tasting or change those set vendors had me a little worried at first, but being the possibly obsessive over involved planner that I am, I did some serious research and review reading. All the vendors have incredible reviews (and they're all about to get one more from me). When the day came, I had nothing to worry about. The food was amazing, all of it, and all the guests said so. Cake was gorgeous and delicious. Flowers were beautiful. DJ was so awesome! Ugh. I wish we could do it again. We can't. But YOU CAN!
Wedding planning can definitely be hard! My husband and I got married here on June 16, 2016. I am so glad that I chose to have my wedding at a Wedgewood property. They make things so easy and have so much to offer. The reason why it's so easy is because they have packages where you can add or take away from. Their packages include all the vendors that you would need; Cake, DJ etc. So you don't have to worry about finding those vendors. The vendors for this Wedgewood property were amazing! Our DJ was so much fun and made the party great. The cake (I did a cupcake tower and a small cake on top) were so good, everyone raved about them! The food here was probably the best thing! It was so tasty everyone raved about this as well. I chose the buffet so we could get more for our money and we did definitely did. The floral was good, I only have one small complaint about my bouquet. The floral for my centerpieces were very pretty and exactly what we wanted. We had our wedding ceremony and reception both outdoors and it was so beautiful! We had a lot of comments from our guest about the view! The staff here is amazing too! Our wedding coordinator Angelica was so helpful and attentive to everything we needed. Her and the rest of the team did an amazing job of setting up all the decorations that I had and in the right spots that I wanted them to be in. Thank you Wedgewood at the Retreat for the hard work and for making our wedding day amazing!
Everybody at Wedgwood from the coordinators, to the sales office, to the bartenders and servers at the reception were amazing. This venue was absolutely stunning, and all of our guests were blown away. I would recommend this site to anyone looking for an intimate, yet spacious enough area to accommodate their guests. Very very impressed with everything that this site had to offer. Thank you again for giving us the perfect evening!
Our wedding was on May 6. 2016. We worked with Angelica and we were absolutely blown away with her. The venue is just beyond stunning.!! On our day it rained and everything we had planned for was outside. We thought we may be disappointed but the couldn't be further from the truth. The way the inside was setup was outstanding and all of our guests were just blown away be the venue and scenic views. Angelica was able to make the day stress free for both my wife and I. If you want to work with people that make your day stress free and special then go with the Wedgewood at the Retreat. I can say because of them it was the best day of our lives and we still have people coming up to us and saying it was the best wedding they have been to. Thank you Angelica and Wedgewood at the Retreat for everything! Brooke and Justin Hook
My wedding was this past Sunday, March 20th and I can't believe how amazing it was. The ceremony was beautiful and everyone enjoyed complimented how moving it was. The coordinator had everyone in line and ready to go and even helped me stay calm when I realized my vows were misplaced. Luckily I had emailed them to someone, so the assistant quickly printed them out handed them to me 2 minutes later. Phew! The coordinator Angelica kept me in high spirits and smiled at me the entire time, reminding me that this was a happy moment and I didn't need to be nervous. She had talked to all the bridal party at the rehearsal making sure that we all knew what we were going to do. After the ceremony, we were all able to take photos at various locations on site. My fiance was even allowed to move his car around to take photos with, and Angelica came out to take photos of us to post on their instagram. She also made sure the photographer and videographer knew what time we had to get back for the grand entrance. After we all did the grand entrance, I got to see how beautiful everything looked! Everyone was seated at their tables and had all the wine and plates and silverware in place. I didn't even have to think about anything the entire time but enjoying the big day. The food was awesome! We had a double plated served meal and it was definitely worth it. No one had to get up to get their food and they had all the names that needed vegetarian or special meals that they asked me for in advance. After, Angelica had the banquet captain take over the rest of the night and she was so sweet and helpful. I can keep going into details, but in the end, they made us feel welcome every time we came to meet with them, they kept us on track, they helped with planning, and emailed/called me back promptly whenever anything came up. EVERYONE loved the site and the entire night and I wish I could relive it every single day. Thank you all at Wedgewood The Retreat! You're all amazing!
