Bard is the best!, We should know because it’s where we had our reception. If you’re on a tight budget but still want a big wedding there is no better pace. Bard is located on the Port Hueneme Naval Base, but don’t worry, you don’t have to be affiliated with the military to have your wedding there. You’ll get access to an entire mansion with a low per plate cost!
For small and chic weddings, Heritage Square in downtown Oxnard has you covered. The wonderful Italian restaurant, La Dolce Vita, provides catering and there is a chapel on site. As with any outdoor venue, be sure to watch the weather!
You may not know that you can rent out city hall in downtown Ventura for your big day. The amazing marble architecture and ocean views make it a perfect venue for incredible pictures. Be sure to take advantage of the indoor and outdoor spaces there.
Right across from the San Buenaventura Mission sits the Ventura County Museum. Depending on what you're looking for, they allow couples to say "I do" in the open air of the plaza, under a white tent, or in their stonewall pavilion. Not only are you right in the heart of downtown's main street, but you're only a short walk from the ocean.
