The Saticoy Club
Best for:
Breathtaking Events Overlooking Channel Islands
You've dreamed of this day all your life - and The Saticoy Club can help make it a reality with a venue that evokes a sense of Old World charm and romantic elegance. This premier special occasions and wedding venue is nestled in the hills of Somis, California, only about 45 minutes from Valencia. The quaint private club creates that perfect environment before guests even arrive; the drive over on Historic Highway 126 is peppered with rolling green hills, organic citrus groves and classic fruit stands.

Saticoy's proud tradition of gracious, first-class hospitality and cuisine goes back a century, when this jewel was the playground for California's agricultural entrepreneurs and, later, Hollywood elite like Bob Hope.

The scenery is sublime, the weather - ocean-breeze perfection. And the menu! World-class culinary masterpieces will spoil your guests who will start their dining adventure with passed appetizers like New Zealand Lamb Lollipop with mint Demi glace and micro greens; Prosciutto Wrapped Melon with balsamic glaze and basil; Sesame Seared Tuna with crispy wonton, avocado, sriracha aioli, ginger soy glaze and scallions; and Panko Breaded Brie with raspberry reduction sauce and micro greens.

Buffet options range from gourmet Italian to the Saticoy Club Buffet, featuring selections like Slow Roasted Prime Rib, Scottish Salmon with a signature Jack Daniel's glaze and Lemon Dijon Cream Chicken Breast - or choose from a variety of menu selections that have been handcrafted from scratch.
Only a short drive to this Ventura County treasure, but a world away, The Saticoy Club is a must-visit for any engaged couple.

WAX by Heather Nelson
Best for:
Slinky Smooth Big-day Skin
You'll shimmy into your wedding-day best feeling like silk - then glance in the mirror and admire your perfectly-groomed brows - when you make your waxing appointment two to three days before your big event. "No one wants to mess with razors and tweezers during their honeymoon," says WAX owner Heather Nelson, who's industry expertise has her regularly booked four to six weeks in advance. "Since tropical escapes are popular post-wedding destinations, I do a lot of chest and back waxing, brazilian bikinis, full legs and stomachs - as well as brows and upper lips. I encourage my clients to schedule at least one session prior to the appointment right before the wedding to ensure that we get their perfect brow shape on point and can be confident that there are no reactions with ultra-sensitive skin."
