Five Reasons Why You Should Get Married at Vista Valley Country Club

I’ve lived in North County all my life and, as a photographer, have shot weddings in San Diego at nearly every venue. But a few years back I was booked to shoot a wedding at Vista Valley Country Club. I’d never heard of it but, as it turns out, it has been a hidden gem for decades. Recently, the club has been renovated by new owners and turned into a wedding venue unlike any other in San Diego County.

A Little Slice of France

Vista Valley Country Club and its sister property, Cal-a-Vie Health Spa, sit nestled on 450 private acres in a secluded valley in Vista, California, 40 miles north of San Diego. The new owners—self-admitted Francophiles—designed the club to reflect the their trips to France. This Provençal style is mirrored throughout the property, which is decorated with countless French antiques— acquired during the Havens’ French buying trips.

Amazing Bridal Suite

Every wedding photographer in San Diego has their own personal list of their favorite bridal suites. Near the top of mine is the bridal suite at Vista Valley Country Club. It has everything a bride could want: ample space, beautiful light and gorgeous decor.

Incredible Ceremony Space

As if the bridal suite weren’t enough, the ceremony space is even more jaw dropping!

Created with historical significance, Vista Valley Country Club's ceremony site boasts 18th Century Gates and Columns imported from Provence, France, unique Antique Stone Windows reclaimed from the 1700 L'Orangerie in the South of France, and shade timbers ordered in the 1730s by George Washington!

Serenity and Seclusion

Vista Valley Country Club sits in a narrow valley in rural northeastern Vista, between I-15 and Vista proper. Unlike many wedding venues in San Diego, VVCC only hosts one wedding per day, so you’re getting dedicated service from the club’s friendly staff. Because it’s so secluded, it incredibly quiet and serene.

Great Spots for Wedding Photography

As a wedding photographer in San Diego, I’m always on the lookout for amazing spots to photography my amazing couples. At VVCC, there’s no shortage of amazing locations. Plus, the imported French antiques make your images feel like you’re actually in France!

But my absolute FAVORITE spot on the property is a simple tree on the tee box of the golf course’s 12th hole. The tree sits atop a rise and, late in the afternoon, when the light is just right, its a location unlike any other wedding photo location in San Diego!

Cassandra + Jon : Vista Valley Country Club Wedding Photos

If someone would have told me that a San Diego wedding in mid-May would be threatened by rain, I would have told them they were crazy.  But two days before Cassandra and Jon's Vista Valley Country Club wedding, San Diego was socked by a cold Pacific storm that had nearly everyone involved crossing their fingers for fair weather on the wedding day.  Thankfully, the storm cleared in time to leave Cassandra and Jon's wedding day soaked in nothing but blue skies and sunshine. Cassandra and Jon's Vista Valley Country Club wedding could not have been more beautiful or run more smoothly.  Karina, Sydney and the rest of the Couture Events crew did an amazing job of pulling everything together.  Check out the captions below for my complete commentary on this wonderful day.

Stacey + Brett : Vista Valley Country Club Wedding

TAYLOR44.jpg

Stacey and Brett were married recently at Vista Valley Country Club, the recently-renovated venue nestled in the northeast hills of Vista.  Theirs was the first wedding since the renovation and it looked amazing!  The new venue is reminiscent of a Tuscan villa with accents of Provence, topped off by 17th Century gates that were imported from France. The wedding was brilliantly coordinated by Jenna of JLM Events, who flew in from the Bay Area to plan the event.
