    The perfect venue.

    I can't say enough positive things about my wedding at the Palos Verdes Art Center; it was nothing short of perfect. I went with their All-Inclusive Package, which was the best decision for me because I'm no event planner. Desiree, who is the venue's day-of coordinator was a blessing, she was on top of everything, listened to all my ideas, and she put together the perfect nautical-themed reception. Their caterer, Gold Star Catering, was also incredible; I received so many compliments on the food. And Gina, who made our wedding cake, did an incredible job. The guests still rave about how much fun they had at the wedding, and I think that's a testament to how wonderful this venue and its vendors are.

    All Inclusive Artistic Evening

    With every vendor at the location having worked together before, they really have a well oiled machine. The coordinator is highly organized, honest, and knows many in the PV area. They give you a bigger bang than what you expect and do it so your day is what you want exactly. I didn’t think I’d find a reception location that was close enough to Wayfarer Chapel that was within my budget, so I was extremely excited to find a venue that was so willing to not push anything on us, but to listen to what mattered to us and go above our expectations.
