"We just had a wedding here. This is a BEAUTIFUL venue. I love that they have a kitchen you can use so you can save tons of money with your own catering company. They have outdoor and indoor options. The beautiful front lawn was perfect for the ceremony. They have huge double doors that the bridal party walked out of. We did the reception in the back and we had tons of room. They have a bar area patio space and lawn space. They have a nice bridal suite at the venue as well! Jenny the coordinator is AMAZING!!! She is very helpful. She helped us every step of the way!"

"We have rented the hall on two occasions. Jenny has been great to work with, she's always there and flexible when things change. We've used the hall for my daughter's wedding and again for my father's funeral. Both times the hall was clean and well-kept. The tables and chairs are in great condition the facility is clean the grounds are well-maintained the place is very very nice. For the price they are the best place in North county to hold a function."

"Team Optimist Club all the way!!! If you're looking for an affordable, beautiful, customizable wedding venue, you found it here. My husband and I were on a budget for our 180 person wedding, and didn't think we would find anything we could afford for that size party. My sister found the Optimist Club on Yelp, and we went to check it out. It's a blank canvas inside, which is exactly what we wanted for our wedding. Something we could make our own."

"If you are in the market for a wedding venue at an extremely affordable cost you should check out the Optimist Club. When we were looking for a wedding venue we contacted a ton of them locally and looked at quit a bit. As a groom i just showed up and observed while my wife did all the approving. The Optimist Club was extremely affordable and just charges by the head so that keeps the cost down if you have a small guest list."

"Jenny is absolutely wonderful!!! We just had our wedding at this venue. The pricing is great, actually amazing for what you get. Also, Jenny is so helpful and is great at providing suggestions/advise regarding any question or idea you might have. My husband and I had a great experience having our wedding here. It even ended up raining the day of my wedding and Jenny was able to help us coordinate moving the whole thing inside last minute and it went off without a hitch."

What anyone needs to understand is that with the fee for the venue, you get Jenny!! Who's Jenny you ask? Only the single most important person that will make your wedding and reception run smoothly!!"
