Castle Green was the perfect backdrop to our wedding day. Dior and Alexis were a joy to work with. Their recommendations for the caterer and other vendors were so helpful. I would definitely recommend Castle Green as an elegant event venue to friends and family.Sent on 10/03/2019

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.

Nothing but Amazing
This was the first venue we looked at and we loved it but as a formality we looked at a couple more only to realize that the Castle
Green met all of our expectations and wants in a venue. The castle isn’t just a gorgeous classic venue it comes with an amazing crew. Dior and Alexis treated us like family from the beginning. Their service alone makes the venue amazing . They have so much experience which left us at ease since we planned our wedding in less than 5 months! There are no cons to this venue. You won’t regret having an event here!Sent on 04/27/2019
