    Beautiful Venue & Amazing Team = Wonderful Memories!

    Our special day was initially set for May 9, 2020, but as we all know, COVID had other plans. We were crushed and decided to postpone a few months to August, thinking that the pandemic would pass and we could still enjoy our special day soon. That obviously didn't happen either. Two more postponements and we finally were able to celebrate on April 23, 2022.

    During that time my wife and I decided to get married anyways, in a parking lot, at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA. Not exactly the same environment as we had dreamed of at NOOR, but nevertheless a day we will never forget. Each time we had to postpone we inquired about terminating our contract, as the lure and excitement kept fading the longer the pandemic prevented us from holding our event. I get it - a contract is a contract and businesses were struggling too. Bridget was great, doing whatever she could to try and accommodate us and, for that, we were very appreciative.

    So here we are, almost 2 years after we got married - wife is now 6+ months pregnant, but we had an amazing time. Our event coordinator, Kaelan, was incredible! She was so sweet and made sure everything went according to plan. Our friends and family kept mentioning how calm and laid back we were throughout the entire day and evening, and a huge part of that goes to Kaelan and the team at NOOR for preparing and executing our timeline of events flawlessly.

    I'll be honest, there were many times we discussed and wished that we could have cancelled our event, moved on, and put this all behind us, but after experience our wedding day (i.e., almost 2 year vow renewal) at NOOR, we are truly happy to have held the event and now have the wonderful memories with our family and friends.

    Best venue, staff, and food!

    We recently had our wedding at NOOR and honestly can't thank the entire NOOR team enough for flawlessly executing our dream wedding! We could not have been more happy with how our wedding turned out, in spite of a little unexpected rain on the day-of! It was absolutely perfect!!

    Our on-site coordinator, Anna, did a superb job and handled everything with such calmness, grace, and professionalism! She was THE BEST throughout the entire planning process and executed our vision amazingly. She was always responsive everytime we called or emailed.

    Our wedding was originally booked for June 2020 but we had to postpone twice due to COVID. Robert and his team at NOOR were so accommodating and worked with us through both postponements so we never felt like we were going to lose out on our venue. That peace of mind was priceless! We went through 3 different on-site coordinators over 3 years and every single coordinator handled our wedding with the utmost care and professionalism to make for a seamless transitional process. Every time we went for our site meetings, we always got a little more excited for our wedding because the venue is gorgeous and always so welcoming. NOOR is truly the best!

    The food and service at the wedding were top-notch--all of our guests had the best time and have been raving about how beautiful of an event it was! We have been recommending NOOR to our friends and family, even before our wedding happened, but now we can attest to its greatness!

    The staff, the food, and the venue was perfect! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

    From the very beginning, NOOR has been nothing but top-notch. We first communicated with Bridget and was very happy with how detailed and transparent she was about pricing. We knew exactly what we were getting and we barely had any follow up questions. When we went to see Noor, we were blown away. The place was spotless, newly renovated, and stunning. We immediately knew this was the place to celebrate our reception. We booked the same day and are so happy we did!

    Emma was our event coordinator and we corresponded with her throughout the planning process. She always responded to our emails promptly and made the process so easy. We had last minute updates the week of the wedding and she never made us feel like we couldn't approach her.

    Noor has this wedding thing down. The very detailed requests they had of our event details made me feel secure about how prepared they will be on the day.

    Everything was perfect on our wedding day! We got compliments on how beautiful the place was, how good the drinks were, and especially about how yummy the food was. We are so blessed we found Noor when we did. We have noting to complain about.

    We recommend Noor to anyone, especially brides who are planning their own wedding. Noor will make your planning easier.

    Thank you Bridget and Anna for everything! God bless and I hope you make many more couples happy with your service!
