  • We booked our wedding reception at the Dana Point Yacht Club and it was absolutely amazing. Not only is the venue gorgeous and the harbor background a unique and stunning view, the head event coordinator, Danielle is absolutely wonderful to work with. From the moment we first looked at the venue online, to emailing Danielle and setting an appointment, to touring the venue, phone calls, emails, the menu tasting, and everything in between, we were blown away. Danielle was fantastic throughout the entire process and we are so happy we chose the Yacht Club for our wedding reception. The day was perfect and it's all thanks to this incredible venue and people who work there. Danielle is easy to work with, timely in her responses and truly provides the best customer service. She answered all of our questions, big or small and accommodated my husband and I with our budget and vision. She made the wedding planning process easy and fun and worked seamlessly with our day-of wedding coordinator to... Read more

  • We loved working with Danielle at the Dana Point Yacht Club for our wedding this past October! Danielle was always very responsive and very patient, answering our millions of questions leading up to our special day. She was very accommodating and really did everything she could to help bring our vision to life. The facilities are great - beautiful waterfront patios and 180 degrees of water/cliffside views from their oceanfront ballroom. All the SoCal ocean love, without getting sandy! All of our guests were impressed by the plated dinner entrees and we were able to come up with custom "bride and groom" drinks to match our personalities perfectly. Danielle offered to help set up and print out some of our last minute signs, so we didn't have to worry about things coming together. If you are looking for an ocean-front venue in South OC that has a low-key yacht club vibe (and is very reasonable for F&B and venue rental fees) - we would definitely recommend choosing this one! Thank you agai... Read more

  • We had our wedding reception at the Dana Point Yacht club on 9/8/18 and it was the perfect day thanks to Danielle, the wedding/event coordinator, and all of their hard-working staff. We started working with Danielle shortly after booking the venue and she was amazing to work with from the start. She always made sure we had everything on track and helped answer our questions anytime we had them throughout the planning process. The venue comes with a lot of included items and vendors, and we were happy with everything and everyone we worked with. We honestly cannot say enough great things about Danielle, she made the planning process easier on us and was so helpful. The Yacht club provides all the food and drinks, and everything was great and ran so smoothly. We had a buffet and had an open bar. The food was delicious and our guests for our wedding of 100 people never had to wait longer than a few minutes for a drink, even after the rush to the bar after the ceremony. The pricing for th...

  • We loved getting married at Dana Point Yacht Club! Danielle was the best Wedding Coordinator and guided us through the entire process. The entire ceremony and reception went off without a hitch and she was there the whole time to ensure everything went perfectly. I would recommend getting married here to anyone, it was beautiful and the staff was superb!

  • I can’t say enough good stuff about Danielle and her staff in the Special Events Department. I was privileged enough to find this venue through WeddingWire and then later, my company ended up working on their facility after an unfortunate water damage. From the moment I stepped onto the Property, I fell in love with the ambiance, location and spectacular views. After the damage was mitigated and all of the Restoration work was complete - that just added to the beauty of this venue. Danielle and the General Manager, Russell, were gracious enough to accommodate my two children during the meal tasting, they recommended vendors with whom we could meet and eventually hire. She took the time to answer my many questions and had the patience to help me through the planning process. In the end, our special day will sure to be magical in every sense of the word - and all because of the professionalism and talent that shows in all they do.

  • This is such a beautiful reception venue. From the hardwood floors to the chandeliers on the ceiling... to the breathtaking views of the Dana Point Harbor... all of our guests commented how beautiful the wedding was. Danielle was such a pleasure to work with. She was willing to work with our budget, and was very patient with us when it came to last minute changes (which makes a huge difference!) We also had so many moving parts--- we had a Korean tea ceremony during dinner for the guests to watch, and she was very accommodating to our needs and what we needed to make it possible. The cocktail hour location is right by the water with string lights above. We were also able to convert that area into a s'mores pit later on that night. The staff was professional and kind, and the food was wonderful!

  • Our experience with the DPYC was amazing! Danielle was such an expert planner and made wonderful suggestions -- the venue looked absolutely spectacular for our small wedding. Every little detail was taken care of and nothing was overlooked. She even went into the bathroom with me and helped me figure out how to pin my 15-point (!) bustle on my dress! She also had all of our belongings waiting for us the next day when we picked up the leftover cake and flowers. I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful, classy yet laid back wedding venue in the SoCal area.

  • Absolutely gorgeous venue! We fell in love with it right away. It is perfect for photos and everything. The food was excellent, way beyond our expectations. These were all the postivies. 5 stars for esthetics and good! Danielle was very responsive and was so helpful until the day of. The 2 stars come in at the service we received the day of. Our wedding was 5 months ago in August during the hottest most humid week. Supposedly the AC was broken 24 hours before our wedding. The event coordinator was very well aware, but had “hopes” that it would be fixed just in time... action was not immediately taken. As a result we had no AC in the reception with nearly 100 people. The dance floor was empty and guests left hours early. My grandma almost passed out from heat exhaustion. It was absolutely devisitating. The thing as a bride that I looked the most forward to was dancing with our family and friends all night long. We had guests from other countries and from the east coast. It was q... Read more

    Dear Alycin and Nate, I hope the two of you are loving married life! I really enjoyed all of our meetings together. You two make a great couple and we wish you a lifetime of happiness. In my seven years at the Dana Point Yacht Club this is the only time the air conditioning has ever not functioned properly. We have regular preventative maintenance checks, but this was an obscure issue that was an abnormality, and I am truly sorry it happened on your big day. That morning as soon as the issue came to light, we called the HVAC company immediately. They had a gentleman on site within an hour, and off to get the replacement part within two hours. From there a number of issues transpired that were outside of our control, and when we realized that the A/C would not be fixed in time, we rented large, expensive portable units at our own expense. We understand that they do not have the output of conventional units, but we wanted to do everything in our power to make you happy, and make your big day as comfortable as possible. Of course, we understand that in the end the temperature was higher than anyone would have liked, and that is why we gladly refunded you your room rental and comped your bar as an apology. We will always go above and beyond for our clients, and again we cannot express enough how truly sorry we are for this unfortunate, isolated incident. Again, we wish you all the best in the future. Warm regards, Danielle

  • Danielle is amazing. She is so patient and kind. She let us come in many times to visualize and setup mock tables, practice our dance on the dance floor, bring our DJ to visualize sound setup, and more. The Venue was exactly what I wanted and everything went smoothly.

  • Had our wedding reception here on August 27, 2016 and I am so happy we chose the DPYC! From the start Danielle was such a pleasure to work with. My husband and I live on the East Coast, so planning a wedding 3000 miles away was a bit stressful, but Danielle was able to answer all our questions and keep our mind at ease. The club is so relaxed and does not have the same strict rules as some other venues we researched. We were able to have candles out on the table and customize our menu and drinks without feeling like we were being nickel and dimed for everything. You definitely get a lot for the amount you spend here in relation to the venues in the area. We were able to extend our reception until 1:30am with a small fee and had no issues with any noise restraints (we had a 7 piece band perform; Pop Vinyl from San Diego... AMAZING!!) .
