    Best day ever

    My husband and I had our wedding here on February 28th and it could not have been more perfect. We toured here back in June of 2019 with Ilsie and Zenobia. Ilsie showed us around the entire venue, let us know about all of the amenities, and broke down all of the pricing for us. The venue is absolutely breathtaking and pictures do not do it justice! There were no hidden fees, ridiculous charges, etc. It was all pretty straightforward and definitely within our budget! Not to mention both Ilsie and Zenobia worked with us so that we wouldn't go over our budget but we still got everything we wanted! Throughout the entire process, Zenobia kept in touch with us and answered about 500,000 questions that we had along the way. She was extremely patient, kind and understanding and we are both so thankful for that since planning a wedding can be (definitely is) such a stressful process. Fast forward to a month before the wedding when Ilsie took over and helped us with all the final details! Ilsie is also one of the most patient and kind people I've ever encountered! We asked her a thousand questions and she never once made us feel like a burden. She made sure every single detail was perfect, everything was in order and she kept up with our timeline so that the day would run smoothly! We could not have done any of this without Ilsie, Zenobia and all the 1909 staff. I'm so thankful for all of them and I will remember my wedding day for the rest of my life!

    An ideal rustic wedding venue in LA!

    My husband and I really wanted to be married somewhere with trees and nature, but local to where we are in LA. We thought it would be impossible, until we found The 1909! The ambiance of the place is just gorgeous, you can almost feel the love and romance in the air. We had Ilsie as our day of coordinator, and she was so sweet and truly did put her whole heart into making our wedding day spectacular. She was incredibly flexible, patient, and kind, which we very much appreciated. You also have the entire wedding venue to yourself for the day of the wedding, which is really wonderful to just be fully immersed in your own wedding. Our guests really loved it. The 1909 was also very handicap-accessible for a few of our older relatives who had trouble with stairs. One thing I wish I would have known earlier, you cannot store anything there the day before or after the wedding, so make sure that you plan for that (we ended up just storing everything in the hotel, which worked out just fine). But the staff is really wonderful about the set up and the clean up, we didn't have to worry about a thing! The food is also great, you work with caterers with The 1909 and everyone thought everything was delicious. All in all, this was absolutely the best wedding venue that we could have asked for in LA, and we had a wonderful, beautiful experience. I would definitely recommend!

    Easy to work with, overall great experience

    If you are looking for both outdoor/indoor venue, this is the perfect place to get married. This is a hidden gem :) the management was great, very prompt with responding to questions. The on-site supervisor was really helpful and great to work with.
