    Outstanding!

    All my guests raved about the venue and the food. It was gorgeous and perfect out in the Taper Courtyard on the summer evening.

    The best wedding venue ever!

    The Skirball Center was our dream wedding venue, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. From our very first venue tour, we immediately knew it was the place for us. The grounds are stunning and have the perfect museum-meets-greenery feeling (it's also centrally located in LA and has free parking!!). We were happy to support a venue whose mission is so in-line with our values.

    The team at the Skirball is the best in the business. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious, and our venue coordinator, Susie, was responsive and communicative throughout our entire 1.5 year planning process. She made our dreams come true! Susie also had fantastic preferred vendors that helped our planning process immensely.

    We truly couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding, and we can't wait to visit the Skirball exhibits regularly to go back to where we got married!

    Excellence all around

    We were extremely happy with our decision to have our wedding at the Skirball Cultural Center. Quite honestly, everything went as well as we ever would have expected. Some highlights include:

    Jenny, our venue coordinator, was absolutely fantastic and of the highest order. She was one of the nicest, most patient, most understanding people we have really ever encountered. She had all of the answers to all of our, oftentimes dumb, questions. She was instrumental on keeping us on track for what felt like every detail. She was unbelievably punctual and responsive. Our entire experience was guided by the excellence that Jenny provided and I cannot overstate how much of a positive impact she made for us.

    The venue itself is beautiful. We had our wedding and reception in the Taper Courtyard in front of the reflection pond. Everybody complimented us on how pretty everything was when it came together. We had string lights overhead with lights illuminating the pillars and walls. The entire event was outside, something that was especially important to us in the setting of COVID; everybody was comfortable. There are lots of places for great wedding pictures on the campus.

    The food was great. Although we didn't get too much of a chance to eat, the amount that we did was delicious. We had expected as much from the tasting event that was held for us after we booked. Guests actively reached out saying the food was good. Not only "good for wedding food" good--actually good.

    Overall, we would highly recommend the SCC and would absolutely book the SCC again.

I love turning wedding dreams into reality!

Every wedding is beautiful in its own way, but the moment when the bride walks to the groom always takes my breath away.

Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, jumping around, and leaving Google reviews for great places!

I love seeing a couple's vision finally come to life. While the florals and food are important, my favorite part of a wedding is the music and dancing.

When I'm not at Skirball, I'm loving on my plants, cats, and kiddos.

Come see us soon. I promise, Skirball is the hidden gem you've been looking for!
