What are folks saying about their experience renting the facilities at AHLF for Weddings

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 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. 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!
