  • After visiting a few venues in Orange County, we decided the Muck was the best for us. You get the whole property for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, so you really get to design a custom experience for guests. The mansion provided many beautiful locations for photos, and had a bridal suite a groom's suite that we utilized the day of. I would definitely hold another event at the Muck.

  • My wife and I had our wedding at The Muck in October 2017. We couldn't have been happier with the venue. Duane was great to work with. Any question we had was answered quickly. He was accessible by phone or email. His staff made sure that any of our needs on the day of were taken care of. We didn't have to worry about anything. They all went above and beyond to make our day special. All of our guests loved the venue. It was a perfect setting for us.

  • We had 6 months to plan the wedding and the first and most important decision was the venue. After visiting many locations in OC and LA, we chose Colette's Catering and the Muckenthaler. Without a doubt, we know we made the best decision for us. The location was ideal - as it was central for our guests from all over Southern CA - (IE, OC, and LA). The venue itself is classic, beautiful and incredibly versatile. Its a true "all-in-one" venue to hold different wedding events, we moved our guests seamlessly to each new area - from the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, to dancing. Also, my favorite, was working with Duane and his team. He was incredibly responsive, friendly, warm, and efficient - he has a ton of experience and made the usually stressful process, much more easier for us. He was accommodating to many of my requests and I was impressed that he replied to my emails personally and in a timely manner. Last, but not least - THE FOOD! It really was so delicious. Our guests enjoy... Read more

  • My husband and I got married at the Muckenthaler last Saturday and we couldn't have asked for a better venue, catering, or wait staff. Duane Greenleaf and Colettes Catering really helped make our dreams come true. Duane's personable approach to wedding planning and his sweet sweet heart made him and this venue stand out. We were living on the east coast, planning a wedding in Fullerton, where I grew up, and I was nervous at first but it was so doable! We got the gold package and added a fully hosted open bar for our guests and it was so delicious and affordable for our guests of about 150. In the last days prior to the wedding, when things felt super hectic and we were finalizing on numbers and details, Duane really put our relationship first and made us feel so special as he and his team were flexible and patient with us. You can't go wrong at the Muckenthaler!

  • My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Duane and his team this November for our wedding at the Muckenthaler. We looked at about 5 venues (that we hated) before we stumbled across the Muckenthaler which we both instantly fell in love with. The outdoor space is absolutely stunning and was EXACTLY what we were looking for. We had around 150 guests which seemed perfect for both the spaces we chose. The food and cake provided by Colette's Catering was AMAZING! Everyone always says wedding food isn't the best but in our case IT WAS, it was seriously just as delicious as the first time we tasted it at the food tasting. We've had multiple people make comments to us both about how good the food was! All in all our wedding was absolutely perfect!

  • We got married at the beginning of December 2014. Duane and his staff did an excellent job of making sure we were happy, everything was accomplished and delicious! The staff was very attentive... so much so, I did not even see them in the background taking care of logistics, etc. It was a challenge to coordinate a wedding from the other side of the US, but Duane and Collettes made it worth it and effortless! They were awesome! I cannot say enough great stuff about them. The bartender was funny and great as well. Duane was accessible by cell and e mail at all times and never once did I worry about the event not working out.

  • We were referred to the Muck by a friend to have our wedding here and I don't regret it for a second! The whole process with Duane was so smooth. He was accommodating to all my questions and changes throughout the whole year of our engagement. As the date drew near we got in contact with Jenny our day of coordinator who was SO AMAZINGLY good at what she does. She's organized, professional, patient, and overall just perfect for the job. We ran 20 minutes late with our program because of Friday traffic but she kept us updated and informed throughout the entire night!! The venue itself has a garden-backyard vibe to it. We were at first concerned about having the patio next to the lawn as the dance floor because we didn't want to splurge on the dance floor ($800!) but it turned out great!! After dinner on the lawn we have speeches and then we all congregate to the patio for drinks in the fireplace area and the first dance, which I was tipsy by then for but it turned out fine. Our outdoor ... Read more

  • I just had my early July wedding at the Muck, and it was everything and more! My fiancé and I wanted two adjectives to describe our wedding: Beautiful and Fun. The Muck and Colette's Catering delivered just that! VENUE: absolutely beautiful and so unique! The Italian Garden was able to accommodate our 245 guests for the ceremony. During cocktail hour, guests were able to go to the patio to get a drink at the bar, go into the Art Gallery, or play lawn games on the expansive lawn area. And our photographer was practically giddy with how many amazing spots there were to take pictures. FOOD: delicious buffet of summer salad, tri-tip with chimichurri sauce, mashed potatoes and green beans. On top of that, our guests couldn't stop raving about the chocolate caramel creme brulee wedding cake! STAFF: on point! Duane was amazing about answering my 1000 questions and having such a warm and positive attitude. Everyone I met was so sweet and so helpful. We loved our wedding, and I co... Read more

  • The Muck is a beautiful venue. We got married here in July 2016 and booked the venue in January 2016. We had our ceremony outside in the Italian Garden and our reception outside on the Adella lawn. When we first booked the venue we had wanted to have an indoor reception, but then I saw some photos online of outdoor-held receptions under a beautiful tent, and was sold on that. We also loved the fact that guests can roam around inside the gallery during cocktail hour if they wish (although ours didn't, because most of the action was outside). With that said, the price we were quoted when we signed the contract and the price we ended up paying at the end of the day were very different. We are partially to blame, of course - we added a lot of extras and upgrades along the way. But we wished that Duane would've told us ALL of our options before we signed the contract. It would've been nice to know that getting a beautiful tent would be $8K more, upgrading chairs would be $5/chair, etc. But ... Read more

  • My husband and I were married at The Muckenthaler in November of 2016. The mansion and grounds are beautifully kept and provided a romantic background to our wedding. The team at The Muckenthaler helped us coordinate the ceremony and the reception, even making last minute changes when it rained. One of the reasons we chose The Muckenthaler, other than the history and beauty, was the capability to move inside if it rained. Although we didn't have the ceremony and reception in the beautiful Italian garden with dancing under the romantic lights of the patio, the end result was even more romantic and our guests were happy in the gorgeous art gallery with dancing in front of a beautiful fireplace. I was very happy that the team worked to move the wedding inside without my having to direct them, they reassured me that all would be done and beautiful when I arrived. I had complete confidence in them and I was very happy with the end result. Our wedding was completely different than what we ha... Read more

  • We chose the Muckenthaler for our July 2016 wedding, all outdoors and on the lawn. The greenery and historic mansion made for divine pictures and the overall experience of the day was elegant yet a relaxed and FUN reception! Colette's Catering did an amazing job wowing our guests with delicious, beautiful food and impeccable service! If you're looking for a "classic" feel for your wedding and ease of set-up and planning, this is your venue! Our expectations were exceeded and our wedding day was perfection!!

  • I loved my wedding at the muck!! They whole process was so easy with them! So many things are included and they are such a well oiled machine. Seriously the process couldn't have been easier with them! They only bummer was at the rehearsal we were waiting around for someone to show up.. I was a little surprised at the lack of communication when they whole rest of the process was so smooth. But on the day of it was perfect !

  • I LOVED the Muck and the team at Colette's Catering. I booked with Duane, who was obviously born to do what he does and is great at it. He answered so many long emails of questions from me when I was in the early planning/brainstorming stages, and also checked in at our tastings and the day of. I got a great vibe from him from our very first meeting, and he continued to exceed expectations and provide amazing customer service. Sara was our event ops manager, so she handled food, logistics day of, and any payments/contract changes. She was very sweet and accommodating, and also quick to answer emails, especially in the days right before which is when it's most important! Andrea was my day of coordinator, and I have to admit I was not very confident in her at first, only talking over email. But she also exceeded expectations at our rehearsal, corralling a crazy family with ease and making sure we had everything we wanted exactly how I envisioned! It can be scary entrusting your year of... Read more

  • My wedding day ended up being absolutely perfect, but many times leading up to the wedding we had wished we had gone with another venue. The main issue was working with the staff at Colette's. They had a promo going on when we signed, so we thought it would be great to get a discount and be able to save a few bucks. But with that promo came (unknowingly to us) much less communication and service. We felt like they didn't care about our wedding because we were a promo wedding. If they aren't going to treat all clients the same they should not offer the deal! We hired the day-of coordinator, who was also our Colette's contact, and much of what we discussed in our conversations wouldn't make it into the contract. So just before the wedding they finally added all the items that I thought had made it in 6 months prior, which resulted in a huge price increase we were unprepared for. They get you hooked in the intro meeting with a very low cost, and say it's all-inclusive. But it is no... Read more

  • Although I did not end up booking my reception here, I have to say that Duane was incredibly helpful, patient, informative, and overall just a really great guy. When I told him my budget, he worked with me and never made me feel weird or not good enough for the venue. Apparently they use one of the best caterers around, too. The venue is absolutely beautiful with lots lots of places for photo opp's!! There is even an art gallery for guests to view while you and your new husband are taking pictures. You're pretty much set with this place: great scenery, things to do while the newlyweds to take photos, great catering, and good communication.
