    My dream wedding

    Marina Del Rey by far exceeded our dream wedding. From the time we sat with Carl to the day of the wedding the customer service was stellar!! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. It rained on our wedding day but you would've noticed they recreated a magical tent and the ceremony kept going. The food was DELISH, the drinks were great not watered down like other venues.
    All of my guests can't stop talking about our wedding!! There was never a time when we didn't feel special during this process leading to the big day and we are grateful.
    We thank Carl, Tori, Joe, Savanah and the rest of the staff that made our dream wedding come true!

    My wedding was perfect thanks to Marina Del Rey!

    I booked my wedding at the Marina right after my first meeting with them. My husband and I sat down with Joe Savino from the beginning who broke down everything for us from start to finish. Joe was so accommodating in working with what we wanted for our day. Every time I called or went there leading up to the wedding everyone was so nice and friendly, everyone really makes you feel like you’re working with people you’ve known forever.
    Day of my wedding exceeded all expectations thanks to Joe Savino and Joe Orzo. The attention to detail is like no other, making sure that not only my husband and I had everything we needed and were happy but also making sure that each guest was happy. The level of service and professionalism is like none other that I’ve seen at the many weddings I’ve been to and I had so many guests say to me that night and after the wedding how amazing it was & how on top of everything they were. My bridal attendant was also amazing, making sure that everything was taken care of for me from start to finish so I didn’t have to worry about anything. I didn’t stress about a single thing on my wedding day, everything was planned down to the last detail & flowed so seamlessly.
    Moving on to the food. Where to start? There was so much food and it was ALL amazing. The cocktail hour was amazing and had so much to offer our guests. For the reception we did a pasta trio, everyone raved about the risotto! For the entree there were multiple choices, all of which were fantastic. To make sure my guests had the full experience my husband and I had a Viennese hour for dessert which was outdoors, right outside of our reception room. There were so many dessert options - cakes, cookies, a crepe station, ect. They really go all out when it comes to their food and it shows.
    Lastly, the venue itself. The venue overlooks the water which provided such a beautiful backdrop for photos. The ceremony was outside, right over the water & everything was set up perfectly to move right into an indoor/outdoor cocktail hour. My bridal suite was right next to the reception room, making it easy to sneak away when I needed. Our reception was in the Venetian room which was set up exactly how I envisioned. Every last detail was seen to.
    I would absolutely recommend the Marina Del Rey to anyone looking to book a venue for their special day. I can’t say enough just how impressed I was with my experience with them!

Many brides and grooms will ask my opinion about locations for their weddings... They know that our band has been to so many catering facilities through the years and we know the food and the way many of these halls are run ...It is my absolute expert opinion that The Marina Del Rey not only has the greatest service and location (the view on the water is spectacular) of any hall we've ever been to , but the food is absolutely the best ! I will always highly recommend the Marina Del Rey.
