In Southern California there are many options available to choose from when deciding on a wedding venue. For many, the first thoughts are that of golf courses, beaches, hotels, and others. But sometimes, some of the best kept secrets are the venues that are located right amongst the communities we live in. Community Wedding Venues make for terrific wedding photos.

More often than naught, these “diamond in the rough” venues are simply known within their communities as the city’s community center. Occasionally, they have an altered name, but the words “community center” is often included.
Shooting wedding photography at these various community venues throughout Southern California allows us to take a wide variety of photos with many types of different looking backdrops in your shots. And because each community venue is different, the backdrops will offer different forms of décor that you won’t get at other locations.
Of course, all venues, whether they are within the community or not, have their pros and their cons, but if you opt for a community located wedding venue, your ceremony and/or reception will be a huge hit!
In addition, most community facilities have the opportunity to conform their spacing to meet your needs and your budget, not to mention they usually offer quite a few amenities. How highly do we think of community wedding venues? I got married in February 2020 and held my ceremony at the Oak Canyon Nature Center and the reception at the Yorba Linda Community Center. Both locations were beautiful and met our needs at reasonable rates. You can check out both of these locations, and others, below.
