I had a great experience working with Madera Kitchen!

I DJ'd for a wedding at Madera Kitchen earlier this year (on 04/30/2021). I've performed for many venues throughout Southern California, but Madera Kitchen stood out as one of my favorites!

The venue has a beautiful, welcoming atmosphere. It also has the perfect location in the heart of Hollywood. After their wedding ceremony at a nearby church, the couple was able to fit in wedding photos at Griffith Park and throughout Hollywood, all before cocktail hour started at Madera Kitchen.

Madera's staff was professional, friendly, and helpful as well. They were very conscious of all the details that make a wedding perfect for a couple and their guests. Jennifer in particular was great with her communication, and she made the planning process way easier for me as a wedding vendor. The couple was very happy with their wedding as well!

I recommend Madera Kitchen to anyone who's looking for a great atmosphere, location, and service for their wedding!

Madera perfection

I cannot begin to express my gratitude towards Madera. My wedding, like many others, was ruined by COVID. We were postponed from April 19, 2020 to October 11, 2020. We lost our original reception venue. We lost deposits. We were truly broken hearted and ready to give up. We accepted that a big wedding celebration just wasn鈥檛 it the cards. We at least thought maybe we could still just elope with family at the chapel, we hadn鈥檛 lost that yet. Well the chapels restrictions changed. We paid for a private ceremony with 40 guests鈥t was now dropped to 4 from the same household. Basically, we couldn鈥檛 have anyone. We almost settled for the chapel anyway with the option to invite everyone to watch over zoom which is what I absolutely did not want. We were just going to try to find a restaurant with outdoor seating to meet our family at, just eat & celebrate after.

Well, yelp lead me to Madera鈥檚 website in an attempt to make a reservation for brunch and the first thing I saw was a pop up that said they were taking micro event and had special pricing for couple鈥檚 who鈥檚 weddings have been ruined by Covid. Talk about a SIGN. Everything moved very fast from that post. I immediately emailed event director Jenn Laskey to get more info. I didn鈥檛 have much hope tbh because we didn鈥檛 have much left to spend. Well, Jenn being the angel that she is really made every effort to work with me. I was sold from the customer service alone and that platinum service didn鈥檛 disappear after we signed the contract and paid the deposit. Jenn stayed on top of everything from start to finish, even after! We had 6 weeks to pull Plan C together- an intimate 37 guest (All family) micro-wedding. We moved everything to Madera completely including the ceremony. Me and Jenn were emailing literally every single day.

Our tasting was scheduled quickly. The food was fantastic from start to finish and bartender AJ worked with us to create two killer featured cocktails that could be ordered virgin as well! Green dolphin and Rosemary Jane were our cocktail winners! We met the owner Milton who was nice as ever and our future site manager for the day of- Marco (also so nice!). They were all so detailed when it came to creating the layout of our big day which was set to take up the entire covered patio. The venue itself IS STUNNING AND NEEDS MINIMAL ADDITIONAL D脡COR. They own their own beautiful wood tables and chivari chairs plus a bunch of mix and match eclectic lounge furniture! All of that would鈥檝e been a massive extra expense if I had to rent that separately! The venue is dripping in greenery and romantic lights, a true modern boho dream! Both my fianc茅 and I fell in love during our first walk through!

Our big day couldn鈥檛 have gone smoother, then venue took extra safety precautions in regards to COVID. The guest tables were generously spaced out and limited to less than 8 per table all seated with household members. Party dancing was unfortunately not allowed for safety reasons but Jenn and Milton allowed us to keep all our ceremonial milestone dances (first dance, mother-son, father-daughter). Servers were all in masks during the duration of the event, temp checks were done, and all food was served rather than presented buffet style. Both Jenn and Marco were present as our site reps and were fully involved and hands on the whole night ensuring our day was running smoothly. I had such a STRESS FREE WEDDING DAY it almost seemed unreal! The venue was ready when I arrived and so photogenic! My wedding photos are CINEMATIC because the venue. Everything was where it should be. We got married against the vine wall and dined at a head table with wine barrels as our back drop. Our guests were fed non-stop the entire night. Welcome champagne then tray passes during cocktail hour, opening course, main entr茅e, then multiple desserts and after dinner coffee/tea! EVERYONE WAS SOOO FULL THEY PROBABLY WOULDN鈥橳 HAVE EVEN DANCED IF THEY COULD! LOL Our guests are STILL talking about how INSANE the food and drinks were! We had a couple of picky foodies on our guest list, all gave Madera their seal of approval. Our guests were so impressed by the excellent servers and their top notch service. Jenn checked on us constantly throughout the night and made sure we were fed and happy with how the night was going. Our wedding was intimate, stunning, love filled, and I don鈥檛 feel like I missed out on anything by choosing to have a micro-wedding at Madera instead of our original plan for a big party. It truly allowed us to see the truth in Quality over Quantity. We were able to spoil our smaller guestlist and have a more magical and memorable night than we ever imagined. I鈥檓 so thankful I found Madera. I鈥檓 so grateful for Jenn and the entire MADERA TEAM! If you鈥檙e considering Madera for your big day, don鈥檛 hesitate. You鈥檙e making a great choice!

Jenn Laskey/ Weddings by JL who created and oversees the event divsion at Madea and is the preferred planner for many of our weddings...

We are seasoned wedding and event pros and have been in the event business for 19 years and have done over 450+++ weddings and have a creative, artistic approach to weddings while being extremely detailed oriented and understand all aspects of the hospitality business while having a stellar design eye! A lot of clients have been kind enough to say I was worth my weight in gold for all the help and ease of stress I provided them throughout the entire planning process and of course running the show the ever important wedding day - you don鈥檛 have to stress that the right decision will be made with someone with my experience level and general knowledge base (weddings are stressful enough already, right?!) I have a handful of proud saved the day stories, but in a perfect world you work with good ppl and plan everything so well nothing can go wrong (thou I鈥檝e had the occasional freak rain storm, power outage, or crazy person to complicate things, and I always know what to do so that the audience doesn鈥檛 know anything is wrong, of course!). Also I have gained a lot of experience over the past many months of covid compliance within the restaurant world and applying that to safely doing weddings.
