COUPLE'S SPOTLIGHT: Victoria + Philip


Today, we dedicate our Couple's Spotlight post to LH couple Victoria and Philip! The pair, who booked with us back in January, are still months away from their April 2017 wedding, but we just couldn't wait to share their sweet story! Read on to see how the two met and why they chose The Lighthouse for their big day!

1) How did you and Philip meet?

(By Victoria)

Philip and I met at the University of the Pacific when we were pursuing our BS in Biochemistry while in Microbiology. 

2) What's the proposal story? 

Philip proposed while in Puerto Vallarta on the balcony of the condo at La Palapa overlooking the ocean during the most beautiful sunset on November 24, 2015.

3) What made you decide to book The Lighthouse for your big day? 

We fell in love with the Lighthouse the moment we saw it. It captures both of our personalities (old world charm = Victoria, with a modern flair = Philip). We also particularly loved that it was at the marina and near the water which captured our love of the sea. 

4) What are you most looking forward to about your wedding? 

We are most looking forward to celebrating our love with our closest family and friends while making memories that will last us a lifetime. 

We are so excited to see how V+P incorporate their personalities into their decor, and transform our beautiful venue for their their big day here at the Lighthouse come April!


Did we ever mention how much we LOVE our LH Family? Well we can literally go on and on about how awesome our clients are. And the BEST part to us is when we hear what they thought about the venue and our services, and how we helped bring their event visions to life!

We know how crazy it can be after the event stress has died down; taking a huge sigh and then getting back into the groove of normal everyday life. So when we receive reviews from our clients, we can't help but want to give them a huge hug and thank them for taking time out of their schedules to sit down and tell us about their experience here!

Even before making the conscious decision to book The Lighthouse, to the months/weeks/days leading up to the BIG one, and even past the calm after the storm... It's good to know that our client's continue to feel supported the whole way!

Today we share a pair of new *glowing* 5-star reviews that we received this past weekend, from two lovely ladies from the LH Family, PLUS, an endorsement from one of the Vendors We Love - Rick and Nora, over at Lantern Catering. Gosh, how did we get so lucky?

"If I could give The Lighthouse more than 5 stars I would! The venue is so beautiful and charming. We love everything about this venue - the succulents, large lawns (perfect for our lawn games!), palm trees, modern banquet room, the inn upstairs, and of course the view of the marina and surrounding waters. The customer service from day one was amazing! Marie and Brittanie were a pleasure to work with. Not only did they always greet me with big smiles, they were so responsive and happy to answer any and all questions. My wedding day was perfect and I feel so lucky to have found The Lighthouse as my venue! I highly recommend The Lighthouse!"

"My husband and I renewed our vows and this place was just perfect! It had everything we wanted - a modern reception room, lawn area for our ceremony, outdoor deck for cocktail hour, and views that were breathtaking. The pictures that were captured don't do justice but they still turned out amazing. From the planning process, all the way to the big day, the ladies (Brittanie and Marie) that helped us were so great to work with - very responsive, helpful, and very, very accommodating!! Without any hesitation, we would LOVE to have more and more celebrations at The Lighthouse! We loved it, our guests loved it, we had NO complaints. The venue is truly a hidden gem!!! Thanks again Lighthouse for making our 10 year anniversary an unforgettable one!! We hope to hold more events in the future ;)"

(From Rick and Nora at Lantern Catering)

"The Lighthouse at Glen Cove Marina is our favorite venue to cater at! Not only is it beautiful but the staff Marie and Brittanie are extremely helpful and friendly! We have catered many weddings and other events here this past year and highly recommend this venue to all our catering clients!"

We just have SO MUCH LOVE for our clients and friendors; it really is like a family here! And we look forward to the opportunity to celebrate another occassion with them here :)

COUPLE'S SPOTLIGHT: Sarah and Daniel


Love is such a beautiful thing, and we're so lucky that we get to witness and help celebrate the union of #LHCouple Sarah and Daniel in less than two months! This good-looking pair booked with us back in October and after reading how Daniel proposed to Sarah, we imagine that their wedding day will be full of happy tears, and will be nothing short of the kind of love you only read about in books or see in the movies! 

1) How did you and Daniel meet?

(By Sarah)

We met through mutual friends at a backyard barbecue four years ago. He couldn't figure out how to unlatch the gate to get in the party, and I helped him :) The rest is history.

2) What's the proposal story? 

May 10, 2015 - Mother's day (my first Mother's Day - we have a 17-month old son). We also happened to plan our sons baptism on this day as well. After church, we invited all of our close friends and family back to my mom's house for a baptism/Mother's day celebration. After we all ate, he surprised me with a slideshow of photos of our family/pregnancy/baby boy birth (yes, it was as perfect as it sounds)! Everyone was in tears already, and then he got down on one knee in front of all of our loved ones! I said yes, of course!

3) What made you decide to book The Lighthouse for your big day? 

As soon as we started looking for venues after our engagement, I stumbled upon the website. I was sold. And once we came to visit the first time, my Fiance and I both fell in love. The Lighthouse is such a charming and unique Bay Area wedding venue. It combines the outdoor feel, with the convenience of an indoor setting. It is everything we were looking for and more!

4) What are you most looking forward to about your wedding? 

Celebrating our love with all of our friends and family in such a stunning location.

Aw Sarah, you're so sweet! And we can't wait to see how stunning YOU are on your big day!!!
