UCR Wedding Testimonials

Adriana & Aaron
“Aaron and I met in high school. He was a senior and I a sophomore. From the moment we met, we’ve been inseparable. We decided that the UCR was the perfect place to pursue higher education. Aaron majored in computer science. I am currently pursuing a degree in Spanish language. Our wedding experience at UCR was amazing! The food was delicious and the venue beautiful. It was a truly magical night. Aaron and I will forever more be a UCR family.”

They offered flexibility to meet our needs and ensured that our wedding was a special event. We received many compliments about the food. Everyone appreciated the beautiful grounds!”
