FILMS ON THE COURSE
For years, Charles Lauren Films has worked with Old Ranch Country Club in Seal Beach to create amazing wedding films for the most fun and innovative couples anywhere! Old Ranch Country Club is a classic golf course venue in Seal Beach, in Orange County California. We love the grand entryway to the country club. We love the architecture of this venue. When the bride walks into the ceremony, she comes down a grand staircase from the upstairs of the club to the ceremony lawn. We love how easy it is to walk onto the course for photos after the ceremony. We love the easy parking, the passage that the guests enter the ceremony from and the ease of the sign in table. Old Ranch Country Club always has fruit flavored water and drinks ready before the ceremony starts.
For logistics on the day - we love how there is a dedicated dressing room for the bride and groom. The bride's room has full length wrap-around mirrors to help in the dressing. The ballroom has a recessed alcove just for the DJ. The dance floor is large in the center, and there is room for a head table right in front of the DJ and dance floor. The windows in the ballroom open up and turn into accordion doors, allowing your guests to spend time after dinner on the expansive patio overlooking the lake, rivers and golf course. Because of the size of the grounds and the huge mature trees, you don't see anything around you but the mountains. No buildings, no sign of the amazing city around you.
Old Ranch Country Club is right off the 405 freeway - and located where the 405, 22 and 605 meet. It is easy to get there from Huntington Beach, from Long Beach or anywhere in Orange County or Los Angeles. The Ayres Hotel in Seal Beach is a short walk away, and a great option for out of town guests. Nothing could make your wedding easier! The staff have always been the most accommodating and caring. We've seen how they treat the families, the couples and vendors. They are professional, warm and welcoming.
Old Ranch Country Club is known for its stellar service and lush landscaping, which includes its 18 hole golf course. What a great place to have as the backdrop to your wedding!
Old Ranch Country Club is a gorgeous venue and a perfect place for your wedding video. It has a build-in ceremony site with an Athenian Style gazebo. You can leave it just the way it is or spice it up with your florist to make it even more fantastically romantic for your "I dos."
PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE AMAZING GAZEBO
The open grass space at Old Ranch Country Club is perfect for those intimate romantic photographs. It is a Diamond in the Rough! Most people don't realize the flexibility you have at this venue - there are many different areas for photos and videos. The front of the club has classic steps leading to a shady porch; there are sheltered floral coves by the driving range; you can have ponds, palm trees, mountains, skies and grass in your background - just by walking around the main building.
