My daughters small (16 people total) wedding ceremony and dinner after was held at this venue this past weekend, 10-10-20. We were so very lucky to have been able to have her event here, due to COVID there were very few options available. When my daughter first told me about the "discovery center", I have to admit I had reservations, until I actually saw the outdoor space. I was very happy and relieved to see there was a very nice wedding arch in place, with gorgeous sunset views overlooking the lagoon, as well as a perfect patio strung with market lights in which to have a sit down catered dinner. The venue closes to the public after 4:00, so the timing was perfect for a sunset wedding. The staff at the Discovery Center was extremely responsive, answering all our questions promptly and professionally. I am a perfectionist, and am very often disappointed in venues or events, but Agua Hedionda Discovery Center exceeded my expectations in every way. My daughters wedding was already postponed twice due to COVID, but she wanted to go through with a legal ceremony instead of waiting any more, she has two grandfathers that are both in their 90's that she wanted to attend. This venue was perfect for them. There was handicapped parking available just steps from the ceremony site, no steps or stairs to navigate, restrooms very easily accessible, was well lighted and the Discovery Center provided the tables and chairs needed so we did not have to rent or bring those in ourselves. The Discovery Center is truly a hidden gem! I would have never thought of this location for an event if my daughter had not heard about it but would happily recommend this site for anyone looking for an easy, picturesque, very reasonably priced venue for a small-medium sized event. I forgot to add, we were also able to bring our own champagne for a toast, as well as wine for dinner (or any other food or beverages we would have liked). This is a HUGE plus as other venues would absolutely not allow you to bring in any of your own beverages and many have restrictions on caterers used if they do not provide food services. A++++ event from start to finish! Thank you, Agua Hedionda Discovery Center, for providing my daughter with the perfect wedding even during these COVID times! We will forever be grateful!
Samantha is amazing and really helped coordinate my event. Fantastic venue with a great patio. Staff were helpful and the facility was clean as represented.
