    AMAZING VENUE, with an even more amazing price!

    We recently had our wedding reception at La Venta Inn, and it was absolutely a dream come true. The La Venta wedding codrinator went above and beyond to make sure that everything ran smoothly, and we can honestly say that the wedding turned out even better than expected. Our guests keep telling us that the food at La Venta was the best wedding food that they ever had, and that the views were some of the most beautiful that they have ever seen. We highly recommend La Venta for weddings/events, the entire package for what the cost was is truly an amazing deal (about $20k less than a hotel wedding, plus at La Venta you have the entire place to yourselves). It really makes the whole wedding process easier given that La Venta provides all the tables, linens, cutlery, and food and cake, and even assigns you a wedding coordinator so it is not necessary to hire an outside wedding planner. They also give a lot of flexibility in the decorations you can bring in, but honestly you barely need any given how stunning the ocean and LA skyline views are. As an added bonus, we had our ceremony at the Neighborhood Church, which is only 5 mins away, and is also one of the most stunning seaside churches I have ever seen.

    We could not have asked for a more magical venue. Our wedding celebration will go down in history as a Fairytale ending. The La Venta Inn was not only beautiful but the entire staff were incredible to work with; especially since we live out of state. They coordinated with our parents and together created one of the best days of our lives. We highly recommend the La Venta Inn for any event - especially your wedding.

    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!

  • Jason Michaels Special Event Entertainment Wedding DJs

    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.
