The Perfect Venue
Allied Arts guild was the absolute perfect venue for our mini-wedding. The guild itself is so beautiful and quaint, and the little shops are so charming. Every time we visited, we were transported into a lovely oasis. During our search for venues when we first got engaged, Allied Arts Guild was one of our top choices, but we eventually settled on a winery. But when the pandemic hit, our original venue closed down and we went back to Allied Arts Guild, since they were safely operating their businesses outdoors. The stars aligned and they were available on our date, and they offered the perfect setting to our downsized mini-wedding. Everything about the whole process was amazing, and Tiana was such an angel to work with. She accommodated all of our requests and offered her expert opinions on making our dream visions come to life. On the day of the wedding, everything was executed flawlessly and we had a perfect day thanks to her and the entire staff. We had an 11am ceremony and brunch wedding and the food was spectacular. Plus, since it is during COVID times, the staff performed all the proper safety protocols and measures. Plus, some of the proceeds benefit Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital! Our wedding was everything we hoped for, and so so much more!!Sent on 10/19/2020

We wanted an artsy, old fashioned venue with outdoors options. The Allied Arts Guild was perfect, and a great somewhat hidden location.Sent on 07/04/2013
We went back together for lunch last month. It brought back the memories. The only pick we had was the early curfew, but we knew that going in. Overall, very satisfied with how the wedding was handled.

An older venue, but we wanted it to be cozy with our smaller guest list. Cute/quaint!Sent on 06/19/2013
Allied Art Guild provides the peace and decency for your events yet so close to the city. The vintage architecture and gardening makes it a joy to visit. Photo and video results are great without trying.
