Coto Valley Country Club Wedding

A Hidden OC Gem for Couples Wanting a Touch of Country

I recently wrote a raving review for Coto Valley Country Club Weddings on google touting the reasons why I love shooting at this venue. There is a distinct country feel to the venue that is quite charming. Although the community is guard gate there are no problems with guests getting access in a timely manner. The venue is located in an area of Coto de Caza called ” The Village”. Custom homes give a more unique quality to the surroundings of the venue.  

Hannah and Gary's Coto Valley Country Club Wedding

Coto Valley Country Club has large rooms for bridal party. The groomsmen have access to foosball table and pool tables. The spacious bridal suite is complete with large mirrors perfect for shooting those special moments when the dress is finally on, bustling the dress and getting the veil in place.  

Hannah and Gary had an outdoor ceremony. Coto Valley Country Club offers a beautiful outdoor space with pavers. There is a Gazebo in the background filled with lush green landscaping and a large green Hedge in the background as well. Large trees surrounding the property give it color in the fall moths and much needed shade in the summer months as well.

They had a large bridal party and the adjacent grass area outside offered plenty of space for family photos and the bridal party photos as well. After the bridal party was photographed we captured some beautiful images near the ponies for some couple portraits.

Coto Valley CC Wedding Reception Layout

The venue offers a large outside area for cocktail hour where guests can mingle. Guests enjoy a large outside bar while waiting to enter the reception area. 


Inside the ballroom you can opt to configure it as you wish. Hannah and Gary chose to have the dance floor in the middle of the room and tables on each side. It worked out beautifully. They had a couples table placed in front of the large barn doors in the middle of the room which is a beautiful backdrop for the speeches, first dance and parents dances. All their guests could see the highlights and dancesin plain view.  The DJ was the emcee for the night and he kept all guests fully entertained as the night kept building. The lobby area has plenty of space for a photo booth and other photo displays. It really is a beautiful venue. If you are considering a Coto Valley Country Club Wedding, please reach out to Angela, the event coordinator. She is a pleasure to work with.
