  • The Muckenthaler is a wonderful location for a wedding and Colette's Catering provides the food, cake, wait staff, etc. We went for the outdoor ceremony, cocktails in the gallery and on the lawn (Duane had some good suggestions with layout!) and the dinner/reception in the patio. It worked out lovely! The two of us planned everything out well, or as well as one can, but the venue also provided that "Fairy Tale" feel that some guests mentioned. Here are a few comments from family and friends: “It was the most wonderful wedding I've ever been to. I absolutely loved the venue!! The whole event was just so beautiful…The wedding was more wonderful than I imagined, I was thrilled to be a part of it….It was the most beautiful and truly magical wedding I have ever attended!...I have been to some weddings and yours was one of the best. Everything was so beautiful, so well planned, so much fun. The place, the food, the decorations, everything so well done and delicious. Loved the cake. ... Read more

  • Duane is doing exactly what he was made to do! He makes you feel like you are his only bride and his sole focus is on you. His ability to provide an honest yet professional and always supportive opinion helped to make my wedding absolutely stunning - it was simply gorgeous, and exactly how I had envisioned it to be. Weeks after the wedding, guests continued to comment on how beautiful the wedding was, how perfect it was from beginning to end. The Muckenthaler Mansion is stunningly idyllic and the perfect wedding venue. It was a magical night and I am so happy to have had my wedding there.

  • Duane Greenleaf and his staff are awesome! They did an excellent job for my sister's wedding. Always helpful, very professional and courteous. I would definitely use their services again and would refer Colette's to my friends and kin.

  • My husband and I were married at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center in Fullerton, CA. We absolutely fell in love with the place from the moment we stepped on the property. When we decided we wanted to get married there, we were referred to Duane at Colette's Catering. One of the things I loved most about Duane was that he was willing to work with any budget and still make the wedding absolutely beautiful. He is very easy going and extremely helpful. The food at our tasting was so amazing I wanted to come back for seconds. The best part was the food at our tasting was the same quality food we had at our wedding. It was delicious! We opted for a wedding coordinator for our rehearsal and day of wedding. Definitely worth it. Sara was very helpful and polite to my family and all of our guests. I didn't have an opportunity to talk to the wait staff, but I had wonderful compliments from my friends and family. Basically, I wouldn't change a thing about the Muckenthaler or Col... Read more

  • I have nothing but rave reviews for Colette's Evennts and their staff! I was married at the Muckenthaler in March of 2014, and booked my wedding through Colette’s Events. Duane and Sara of Colette’s Events helped me through the entire planning process and on the day of my wedding. They were friendly, professional, and made my whole experience perfect. The food was amazing and the staff at the wedding was friendly and efficient. I will never forget all the things Colette’s Events did to make my wedding day seamless and perfect. I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a dream wedding!

  • It is hard to start this review because words cannot express how grateful I am to Duane for all his help. My wedding was held at Muckenthaler Mansion in Fullerton just over 2 weeks ago and my husband and I are still in aww of how magical our wedding was. Duane was put on this earth to keep brides calm and to make these events everything and more than hoped for. I personally wanted to elope but being an only child (a girl) from a very large crazy Italian family that wasn’t an option but, Duane made the experience of planning the wedding so much easier to get through. He responded to my emails in a timely manner and if there was something he needed to find out he had an answer within a few days… even in the middle of busy season (June-August) he still made time for me even though my wedding was in November. His staff was polite and helpful and honest… in fact one of my guests lost a gold hoop earring with diamonds front and back and the next morning one of his staff member... Read more

  • All was handled professionally both prior to and on the day of the wedding. Duane was receptive to some changes within a week or so of the event and available on the wedding day to make sure both bride and groom sides were taken care of as well as the vendors. People commented that the food was great at which they were obviously surprised as it seems wedding meals these days are not highly thought of by many. Parking is close by and plentiful. I highly recommend The Muck for both wedding ceremony and reception!

  • I cannot give enough positive praise for the Muckenthaler Mansion and Colette's Catering! The Muckenthaler is a BEAUTIFUL historic home and garden in the Fullerton, CA area. It was the perfect setting for our wedding when we were looking for a unique place where we could host both our ceremony and reception. The ceremony was in the garden and which was simply lovely. For the cocktail hour our guests were able to explore the grounds or go inside the Muckenthaler house where they could view the art display and gallery. The reception and dancing were held on the side patio with lovely bistor lights hung above. The venue was absolutely perfect with a touch of a vintage feel and lovely outdoor or indoor setting. Colette's Catering manages events at the Muckenthaler and they were a dream to work with! Duane Greenleaf was our coordinator and he was always responsive and so very helpful.

  • My husband and I chose the Muckenthaler for our wedding ceremony and reception (November 23, 2013). We wanted a venue which could accommodate the ceremony and reception. We knew ahead of time that Colette's Catering was the vendor at the Muckenthaler. At my work, we use Colette's for catering needs and they have always been very professional and the food has always been exceptional. That was the main reason we visited the Muckenthaler. We ended up really liking the feel of the venue. It was cozy and just the right size for us. We were planning a wedding for 100 people. There were options to have the either wedding indoors or outdoors. Duane Greenleaf was our contact person from Colette's. He manages the weddings at the Muckenthaler. He was wonderful to work with. He's very warm and knowledgeable about the venue. He answered my endless lists of questions. And he made our daunting task of organizing a wedding that much easier. We communicated primarily through emails with the occas... Read more

  • This was the most beautiful place to get married at. It was less expensive than other estates that we were looking at because it is a public place, versus just a wedding venue (they do close it to a public when a wedding is being held that day). Duane (who also does the catering there) was very responsive to any requests that we made and basically did whatever we wanted with the place. The Mansion was perfect. It made a beautiful setting and backdrop for pictures. It was easy to find for guests as it was right off the street but it also felt so secluded because you are up on a hill. The ceremony area was perfect and the large lawns and patio made it easy to have a place for lots of dancing and a nice, comfortable dinner. This place was AMAZING!!!!!!

  • Beautiful and unique venue. It is handicap accessible. There are many options of where the ceremony and reception can be held and you get to rent out the entire location. The staff that worked our wedding was very helpful, friendly and professional. The cake was delicious as well! I enjoyed supporting a cultural center as well as opposed to another venue.

  • The Muckenthaler Mansion is so gorgeous! I had my ceremony in the Italian Garden and the reception on the stone patio. I was super happy about the natural beauty of the garden. The atmosphere was perfect for my little wedding. The food was great, too. The only problem I had was it was super expensive. It was nice because the cost included the venue, food, cake, bar, etc. But for the price I paid, I was disappointed in the service. Duane was super nice, but it was sometimes difficult to get any questions answered. I also worked with Rick and he was also difficult to get a response, especially days before the wedding. The service during the reception was good until we cut the cake, then everyone disappeared. Overall, If I had to do it again, I would still have my wedding here, though. It was perfect for us!
