As we know COVID-19 has caused detrimental effects across all of the wedding industry, leaving vendors and business owners grappling with what to do next.
One southern California venue owner has chosen to take a path of fierce resiliency in this uncertain time. Cathie Ransom of Los Willows in Fallbrook, CA, and Paradise Falls in Oceanside, CA has decided to turn her hurdles into positives in order to fulfill couples’ needs during the COVID-19 pandemic and the road back to a new type of normalcy.
Forced to close Paradise Falls without notice, she gave every client the choice of a full refund or a date at her other venue. She immediately pivoted to a new business www.theminiwedding.com, a concept to help wedding couples have small weddings in Southern California in three different locations, without any compromise in elegance and ambiance.
