I love this venue! I've been working with the LBMA for over 5 years now. I am on their preferred vendor list. I feel this venue is one of best hidden secrets for a water front wedding in LBC. The food is also some of the best I've had in the wedding industry.
The entire team at LBMA is fantastic. From the top down they truly run an event proving how much they care about the day of, and the enjoyment of the brides and grooms. It's easy to fall in love with the venue because of the amazing view, and beautiful facilities, but once you meet the team it's even harder to walk away. We love working there and with them, and always look forward to the next one!
LBMA is an absolute wonderful venue for the client looking for a mostly out door venue. It offers a beautiful bluff view of Long Beach, with stair access to allow for wedding photos down on the beach! The staff is absolutely wonderful to work with and will make sure every detail of your event is met! As a wedding planner I highly recommend Long Beach Museum of Art as I have worked at this venue many times in the past.
