Beautiful Southern California Weddings at Sherwood Country Club

Ask any bride and groom, and they will tell you that they experienced at least some degree of stress when planning their wedding. Pondering over the dinner menu, the music, and the flowers is one thing, but what about the actual location of the ceremony and reception?
