    So glad we had our beautiful wedding at Loews! There were a couple of factors that helped us choose Loews. The most obvious was the incredible location. A lot of our guests were coming from out of town, and we wanted to give them a really beautiful, quintessential LA experience. The view does not disappoint!
    We also went with Loews because we heard they had good food. This also turned out to be true - we are big foodies so we wanted to pick a venue with great food, and a lot of our guests told us afterwards that it was the best wedding food they've ever had.
    What we didn't know before choosing Loews was how accommodating they were going to be. I obviously had a ton of questions about different elements of the wedding, and they were always ready and willing to work with me to come up with something I loved. On top of that, the service itself during the reception was outstanding - the entire staff, from the waitstaff to the bartenders were incredibly professional and attentive. Everything overall went ridiculously smoothly and I couldn't be happier.

    Loews was the perfect place to have our wedding. We had our ceremony on the beach where Loews provided white garden chairs. The actually site was near the water so it was a far distance to get the chairs out there but that was no problem for Loews. Our cocktail hour was on the patio of the Venice Room and the reception was in the Venice Room. The food was amazing and we had Loews do our wedding cake as well, which turned out very delicious. Everyone raved about the food.

    In addition, we had our rehearsal dinner at Ocean & Vine and the service was beyond outstanding. Most of our guests were out of town and the hotel handled our blocked rooms perfectly. All of our welcome bags were delivered in a timely manner. And they kept the hotel bar open later to accommodate our guests who wanted to party after the reception. I have to give thanks to Jean O'Laughlin who is the Catering Manager. She handled every step of our wedding and she was great to work with!
