    When having a wedding at Occidental College, what you get is not what you pay for. In fact, what you get is WAY MORE than what you can expect. Sure, it's not the Four Seasons but since we prioritized being able to invite as many guests as we wanted (~250 in our case) without having to contemplate selling our organs on the black market to finance the wedding, Oxy more than fit the bill. The campus grounds were a scenic backdrop to a beautiful chapel, a cocktail patio that we lit up to look like a twinkling paradise, and a dining room that evoked elegance and charm. Also, kudos to the top-notch coordinators (Stacy and Sheri), the chefs, and everyone else that were all so friendly to work with. They were accommodating in every and knew what they were doing at all times. Flexibility is also their middle name.

    We took a gamble by not looking at any other venue before booking Oxy but we knew we wouldn't find anything else where the value/cost ratio would be this heavily in value's favor. This was a choice we don't regret one bit.

    Excellent venue. Director of Catering is a wonderful person. Venue is beautiful and unique, and priced much, much better than boring, typical country clubs and hotels. Perfect place to get married. Beautiful location to take photos, and have a reception. You can bring your own alcohol in which saves a ton of money. I highly recommend this venue.

    The Occidental College Music Quad provided a beautiful place for clear pictures. It was romantic. We did not need amplification. Our family and friends had great things to say about the location. This location is surrounded by pillars, and has a fountain at one end. Other great locations are the Admissions House for an intimate garden feel, and the chapel for those who would enjoy a more traditional ceremony. The college provides a wedding coordinator and white folding chairs for an additional cost. We did not have our reception here since we were looking for authentic mexican food, but our friends wedding reception took place at the college and we thought the meal was much better than at other catered weddings.

    Occidental College's reply:

    Yes, our Music Quad is a beautiful location and we're happy that you chose us. It's tood bad you did not use us for your reception/dinner - we have excellent and authentic Mexican food. We're also glad that you did get a chance to taste our food at your friend's wedding held at our campus and appreciate the good review.

    Occidental College offers great settings for wedding ceremony and reception. I came here about three years ago as a wedding photographer and found so many great spots for bridal, wedding party and family portrait sessions. The campus is beautiful..!! The ceremonial service was held in school's church. The arrangement of seatings in the chapel was unique and it made it possible for the guests to view the ceremony from any angle. 360 views..!!! Most of the time, you would see the back of the bride and groom through out the whole ceremony, but the 360 degree seatings allow you to see the side, profile and front view of the bride and groom. Very unique and cleverly arranged..!! The reception area offers high ceilings and spanish colonial architectural background. I would strongly recommend Occidental College as wedding ceremonial and reception site to everyone..!!!
