The Lighthouse Celebrates TWO!

THE LIGHTHOUSE: 2nd Anniversary

On June 12, 2014, after two years of renovations, The Lighthouse officially opened its doors. Surrounded by city officials, local vendors, friends, and family, we cut the ribbon and dove right in.

Since that wonderful evening, we've had the extreme privilege of bearing witness to several dozen wedding ceremonies, engagement parties, baby showers, anniversaries, graduations, and even a handful of memorial services. To be entrusted as the backdrop for SO many momentous occasions, and to know we'll forever be intertwined in the history of so many lives, is not something we take lightly. We take pride in what we do, and we appreciate our amazing clients, not only for choosing to join our Lighthouse family, but for being the amazing, down-to-earth people that truly make our job enjoyable.

Last year, our One-Year Anniversary was coupled with a celebration for winning "Marina of the Year". Out of all of the "small" marinas in the nation--The Glen Cove Marina ranked number one. We surely couldn't have accomplished this without the support of all of our clients and vendor friends. Because not only have we had the privilege of working with the best clients around, we've also established some amazing connections and relationships with the most incredible vendors. The support, encouragement, and kindness we've been shown has been overwhelming.

We'll soon be rolling out our "Vendor Spotlight" feature on the LH Blog (along with several other features to help spruce things up around here), so you'll get to know some of these incredibly talented Bay Area event professionals soon enough. 

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for making these past two years in business so wonderful--we look forward to infinite more! 

COUPLE'S SPOTLIGHT: Talia and Jason

COUPLE'S SPOTLIGHT: Talia and Jason

Happy Saturday! We are very excited to introduce you to another one of our lovely Lighthouse Couples! These two were engaged at a lighthouse (I mean, c'mon, I can hardly think of a more fitting engagement story ;)) and will be married here at the venue this September. Read below for more about these two and how they decided The Lighthouse at Glen Cove Marina was the right venue for them!

1) How did you and your fiancé meet? :

Jason and I met online. Hey...it worked for us!

2) What's the proposal story?:

Jason took me on a surprise trip to East Brothers Light Station where we had a delicious dinner. He suggested that we watch the sunset from the top of the lighthouse, and I thought that was a great idea. While we were at the top of the lighthouse, watching the sunset, he got on one knee and asked me to marry him. I think I had a mini heart attack, but as soon as I could speak I said "YES!". It was the most romantic proposal…. 

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

We live locally and knew that there was a marina in Vallejo, so we decided to check out the area for wedding ideas. The moment that we discovered The Lighthouse there was no question that we wanted to get married there, especially since we got engaged at a lighthouse. We could envision a serene ceremony on the lawn and having a fun celebration in the banquet room; all at one location. The Lighthouse amenities meet all of our needs and make for easy planning. We think we've made the best wedding decision in booking at The Lighthouse. 

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

We are excited to get married first and foremost. We look forward to having family and friends witness one of the most important events in our lives. We really feel that The Lighthouse has great energy for celebrating this occasion. We just can't wait see the people we love happy, eating, and dancing at this beautiful place! 

We are so looking forward to it too! 

Stay tuned for our next Couple's Spotlight next week :)

COUPLE'S SPOTLIGHT: Angela & Marco

It seems fitting that we feature our next couple, Angela & Marco, today...their WEDDING DAY! We first met this sweet couple and their adorable son MJ last summer, and can hardly believe the time has flown so quickly! See below for more details on their love story <3 The Lighthouse at Glen Cove Marina is SO excited for you two and SO proud to be your venue!

1) How did you and your fiancé meet? Marco and I met at Jamba Juice 10 years ago and we've been friends ever since!
2) What's the proposal story? He proposed on our son MJ's 1st birthday with a slideshow of our old pictures and asked me to marry him in front of all our friends and family. 
3) What made you decide to book The Lighthouse for your big day? I was on Facebook one day and saw The Lighthouse as a sponsored ad and when I opened it, I automatically fell in love right away! Pictures do not do any justice. This place takes my breath away. At any angle you look at it, from inside and out, it's BEAUTIFUL!
4) What are you most looking forward to about your wedding?  I'm looking forward to hearing my guests be in AWE of when they see our venue for the first time :)

I hope you will all join me in wishing this beautiful Bay Area couple a VERY happy wedding day! Congratulations, you two!
