    Stephen Wise is an amazing venue. My kids had their wedding on Oct. 9th and it was fabulous. The ceremony was outside at sunset and was breathtaking. Cocktails continued outside in a different location and was spectacular. It was a perfect flow and everyone loved being there. The people who worked there couldn't have been nicer. The ballroom was incredible- what a dance floor!! And killer views. Stacey Rosenthal, the director of special events is the best. Nothing was too much for her. She was so accommodating and insured that everything ran smoothly. She was prepared with a solution for every issue that arose and is simply fabulous. I appreciate her professionalism and attention to detail. She is very responsive and answered or returned every phone call promptly. Stacey gave us the confidence and comfort to make everything perfect. I would highly recommend this venue and Stacey!!

    Life.FIlm team had a pleasure to photograph and to film different events at Stephen S. Wise Temple- such as weddings and Bar Mitzvah.

    We really liked the venue! The Temple has a beautiful view and a lot of nature- which is the great background for the pictures.

    We really enjoyed the location which was chosen for the wedding ceremony- it looked spectacular! A lot of room to creative pictures and videos.

    Reception hall is impressed us by their size! Very specious!

    Life.FIlm will be more then happy to film more weddings and other events there!

    Stephen Wise hosted my wedding Sept 6th 2015. Stacey, who was my point of contact, was extremely reliable, responsive, and helpful. She made herself available the many times I came to look at the venue and offered insight, assistance, and referrals countless times. She made me feel like she was on my team, working to create the event I imagined.
    My only frustration was that I was unaware that I would not be able to turn off the overhead lighting on top of the dance floor. I was told it was emergency lighting that had to stay on. The room still looked great but I was hoping for a slightly different ambiance.
    The outside area for the ceremony was beautiful, the room looked great, and we decorated the outside patio overlooking the valley with lounge furniture and bistro lighting, creating and indoor/outdoor event space that worked perfectly.
    Overall, I highly recommend the venue and Tarte, the caterer we chose there.

I am an event planner and coordinator who worked at Stephen Wise Temple on behalf of my couple getting married there. I can't speak highly enough for this venue and their staff. The Director of Events, Stacey Rosenthal, is organized, savvy, and extremely responsive. Their preferred caterers are also top notch. Most recently I worked with Ruth and her team at Tarte Catering. Their food was outstanding, and the presentation was sophisticated and stylish. The Temple itself has a patio with a stunning view of the city and warm, well-appointed interiors as well as a great outdoor ceremony space (in fact, my colleague who works with me on events got married there herself!). I highly recommend Stephen Wise for events and weddings.
