Best Wedding Venue!

We held our wedding ceremony and reception in the Taper Courtyard with the Reflection Pond as the backdrop and it was magical. The most gorgeous setting made even more beautiful by Coastal Event Lighting (thank you Michael!) and our beautiful flowers (Flowers by Lori). Huge shout out to our Skirball coordinator, Monica, who was went above and beyond in every way. She was always responsive and had a positive "yes, we can" outlook. Monica provided valuable insights, and made sure our vision was reflected in our wedding and was beyond patient with our many questions and emails. Monica is also amazingly organized and kept us moving forward at a realistic clip. We are forever grateful to her and her positive energy!! The food was also outstanding and everyone that worked our wedding was professional and accommodating. This venue, with Monica at your side, is definitely the right decision. Thank you Monica!

Magical night at amazing venue

Spent a lot of time vetting venues and, initially, Skirball seemed like really strong value in terms of bang for your buck relative to other venues we saw in that Skirball presents a beautiful venue (we did Ceremony at Taper and Reception at Ahmanson), a great location (easy to get to for anyone in LA), less "upcharges" like free parking and convenience in that catering/bar are included in their services.

Our Skirball staff members (headed by Lilian) were amazing and made the night one which we found minimally stressful and maximally fun! Our guests really enjoyed the food there and our cameramen really enjoyed all the beautiful sites on the campus.

Importantly, I am a CFO and budgets never come in close to what you initially estimate on a project. Just paid and the final invoice which was within $200 of the initial quote Lilian provided us despite a few changes we made, so really strong planning skills on their end which help prevent unanticipated surprises.

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!
