Castle Green is a beautifully breathtaking venue. It was the first venue we visited and we fell in love at first sight; seeing other venues only reinforced our feelings. Meeting the Event Team, Dior and Alexis, made the decision even easier. Dior and Alexis are the sweetest, most welcoming group of people. We loved working with them. Their transparency with pricing made us feel respected and allowed us to trust them. FYI, we never write reviews, but we were so impressed that we want to support them in any way we can. If we could, we would definitely go back to Castle Green. We wish them every success and happiness.Sent on 03/09/2020

The Perfect Venue
We visited many different venues around Los Angeles, Glendale, Arcadia, and Pasadena for our wedding ceremony and reception that we wanted hosted at one location. We ended up choosing Castle Green, not just because of the historical architecture and mesmerizing view, but because of the customer service. Dior, the Event Manager at Castle Green, was such a pleasure to work with. She was always smiling and so fun to be around with. We also met and worked with Alexis. She was so friendly and helpful. We loved working with them both.Sent on 09/13/2019
The venue was definitely one of the pricier expenses for the wedding but it was seriously worth every time. You get the venue for the entire day. We maximized our time there with our first look, tea ceremony, wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The venue fit our amount of guests of a little over 100 very comfortably. Everyone raved about the venue. My now-husband's mom even said it was the perfect venue.
We were so excited to host our wedding here because it was no-like any other wedding venues that we've been to. From the set-up, the capacity of the multiple rooms, the layout, to the many, many, many places to take photos within Caste Green, I have no regrets choosing Castle Green for my wedding. We even got to go on the manual elevator to the rooftop for photos -- definitely a must-do if you decide to book with Castle Green.
