We love working at La Venta. The staff are always on point and insure the event goes smoothly from beginning to the very end. Guests love the view and ability to roam around the property which you can't get in a normal venue. Highly recommended!
As a wedding professional (having had my wedding at La Venta) I was happy most especially with the staff’s (Tim Kennedy, Kathy, Lori, and even Chef Rick Campos) ability to team their knowledge allowing expeditious response to our ever-growing list of questions in the weeks & days prior to our date. I’d like to mention Tim’s endurance with several meetings offsite including our private tasting in El Segundo & challenging décor issues with Classic Rentals. Chef Campos kept his promise to oversee our event despite a re-assignment within the company. More-over, our Wedding Consultant Stephanie Lairson expressed a similar experience with the staff, their promptness, and attention to detail. When asked what aspect of the experience we appreciated the most, my wife & I concluded that La Venta was a ‘total experience’ since there was several aspects of our special day that were exclusive to the property, the catering, and the service. The result, of course, was a well managed, elegant, & intimate celebration that all our guests continue to talk about six years later. As we see it, the only drawback was having to end our party prematurely at 11pm (which I understand is a policy enforced due to noise issues within the residential community. We are very satisfied with the special memory we have…thank you! If my entertainment business can be of any assistance to you and your staff in providing professional & polished special event entertainers please do not hesitate in contacting my office…I owe you Louise!!
Run by New York Food Company, La Venta Inn is the most fantastic location in the Los Angeles, South Bay area. By far the best food, service and setting. I love working a La Venta Inn. They are very professional.
