  • We had our ceremony and reception at the Muckenthaler Mansion and it was absolutely beautiful -- it was everything I wanted, but better. We were on a pretty set (moderate) budget and I knew I wanted an outdoor venue, so I'll admit I didn't look at too many places. But when I saw The Muck, I just knew it was the perfect place. The staff was wonderful to work with, very helpful and accommodating, and all of our guests commented on how great the food was, especially the cake, and how beautiful the venue was. Duane helped us plan the perfect menu and Kristen, who we hired as our day-of coordinator, was wonderful. We had a lot of special touches, like baskets of goodies for the bathrooms and a particular goblet to use in the ceremony, plus favors that needed a little extra TLC -- they were small potted herbs that we were also using as namecards/table assignments. We just kind of dumped that all on Kristen and she made sense of it and set everything up in the most beautiful way. I wou... Read more

  • Duane and his staff at Colette's Catering were amazing. They were warm and professional, flexible and hard working, always willing to help in any way they could. That was not only my opinion (mother of the bride) but also the opinion of my wedding decorator and my wedding coordinator. The food was incredible...plentiful and deliciously flavorful and fresh. Due to budget constraints, we selected their most modest buffet, hors d oeuvres and cake. I assumed that the quality would proportionately be lesser but that was not the case. Everything was the absolute best...the food was delicious, hot and fresh, the cake was among the best wedding cake I have had and the champagne for the toast was even a quality champagne! I would highly recommend Colette's to anyone looking for a wedding venue/caterer.

  • I had the most wonderful experience with Colette's Events at the Muckenthaler Mansion. As soon as I stepped on the property I knew it was the ideal venue for our wedding. We decided to have a late evening wedding and an all dessert reception with a barrista (instead of a bar tender), which is something they hadn't done before. Our coordinator, Kristen, was amazing and worked so hard to accomodate our unique requests. She not only understood my vision, but was responsive and made the entire wedding planning process completey enjoyable and stress free. I was blown away on our wedding day when everything looked (and tasted) exactly like we pictured! If you are looking for a goregous outdoor venue with amazing food, I highly reccommend Colette's and the Muckenthaler Manison

  • My husband and I were married at the Muckenthaler back in March. From the moment I stepped onto the premises, both of us knew that we HAD to get married here. It was the first and only location we looked at and couldn't imagine getting married and celebrating anywhere else. The location is vast and wide with multiple areas to choose from for your ceremony and reception. Originally, we were planning on having the ceremony in the garden section and reception on the patio; however, rain cancelled that idea and so both took place inside the mansion and was just as gorgeous as it would have been outside. The mansion has a very vintage vibe to it and always has exhibits showcasing so before and after the ceremony, guests have the opportunity to browse inside and check it out. The interior is magnificent and the landscape outside is to DIE FOR!!! You have multiple areas where a bad photo can't be shot. Whether you're looking to have a small (ours was 85 ppl) or big wedding, the Mansion is a g... Read more

  • The Muckenthaler Mansion could not be a more perfect venue to have both ceremony and reception! The mansion is gorgeous, I have a hard time picking my favorite spot! We had our ceremony in the italian garden and the reception inside the mansion, our 100 guests fit perfectly, with room to spare. The patio provided the perfect atmosphere for drinks and dancing. I cant say enough about the Muck!

  • My husband and I very much enjoyed having "The Muck" as our wedding location. We primarily worked with Dwayne and he was amazing! They really take into account your personal ideas and schedule. The site is gorgeous. All of our guests loved it. Colette's Catering, which is the food company they work with, was also worth every single penny we spent. Overall, everything was fantastic. We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking to have a vintage, elegant, organized, and beautiful wedding.

  • The Muckenthaler was the PERFECT venue for our wedding reception. We had the ceremony somewhere else, and came to the Muck after for the festivities. The outdoor reception was perfect for June, and the dance area was the perfect size for our guests (around 250). I also loved that the mansion was open for guests to peruse the current exhibit. Overall, the location was great and had many areas for guests to sit, walk, talk, dance, etc.

  • I loved the location of my wedding at the Muckenthaler Mansion. However, I feel the level of service was poor. Collette's Catering is the company that manages all events at this location. They did not follow through on providing pricing or other information unless I hounded them. They were very non-chalant during the rehersal and day of the event. They seemed to miss the fact that this was my wedding and I expected them to be tentative and responsive to our requests. They also did not provide any wiggle room for the time of the event, even though nothing else was scheduled for that afternoon. Overall, the venue was beautiful but the service was lacking.

  • The Muckenthaler Mansion is a beautiful venue! It has historic charm and provides a number of great backdrops for photos to remember your special day. We used the Adella Lawn to accommodate approximately 200 guests, which included adults and children. It was the perfect setting for both adults and kids. Our adult guests thought the location was beautiful, and being on the lawn provided enough space for the kids to wander around so that the reception was fun for them, too!

  • Beautiful site. We had the cocktail hour in the art gallery and around the Mansion grounds. The dancing was on the courtyard with lights strung over, very pretty. The dinner was on the lawn with a delicious buffet provided by their exclusive caterer, Colette's Catering, which was also excellent and covered in a different review. Duane, the coordinator, was very fun to work with and was great at being flexible and helping us pull everything together. Our ceremony was at the Fullerton First United Methodist Church (across the street from the Fullerton train station) so the architecture was similar and they were a great pair for our wedding day. I highly recommend the Muckenthaler, especially as an ideal location for that "Old Town Fullerton" feel/a romantic and unique location your guests will remember.

  • Everything was perfect up until the day of. All his promises fell through once we paid all the money. They say whatever they want to make you happy but don't follow through. If you pay cash you get a discount. They are good about being flexible with the money but not so friendly the day of the wedding. They cut our DJ off short even thoguh they said it could last an extra hour and they never gave us appitizers while we took pictures which he promised. I taste tested those and never got one!!! :(
