Elsa Feng of ME Events and Design shares what's great about designing at this venue:
Beside the fact that it's obviously beautiful and wows brides, grooms and all guests alike, Terranea is so great to work with! The catering staff, regular hotel staff, and banquet team do really seem like they are on the sa
me team as us, trying to make the day perfect for the bride and groom. They are flexible and try to do everything they can do to make things happen.
Also, the venue is such a clean palette that it can accommodate any look, feel, theme of a wedding. They have elements, colors and tones to make it a rustic or vintage wedding, but at the same time, the structure and feel
of the hotel can definitely cater to an extremely modern/chic wedding as well.
