    Amazing experience

    I cannot say enough great things about my experience at LAC. I had my wedding there a few days ago and it was nothing short of perfection.

    My husband and I had to cancel our previous venue for COVID reasons. We were three months away from our wedding and we’re definitely worried. I reached out to several venues in hopes of finding someplace fast.

    Elvia reached out to me and we set up a tour. She was so patient and answered all of our questions. We fell in love instantly and booked right away.

    Our planning process was so smooth and worry free.
    Elvia was always available to answer my calls and we always found someone at the building to talk to if we dropped by. We met another coordinator, Marie, who was also super helpful and kind. She helped setup my timeline and put me at ease.

    The day of, everyone worked so hard to make sure we had the best day possible. Our room was beautifully decorated, security and the bar tender did a great job.

    I have no regret in choosing this place to host my wedding. I will always look back and remember it as the best day ever.
