Beautiful wedding venue!
I’m so happy with our choice to have our wedding here at Alexandria Ballrooms, it was so beautiful! We worked with Jemma, who is the absolute best and always made me feel like family. She was so friendly, accommodating, helpful and responsive throughout the whole planning process. She always went above and beyond and I can tell already that we wouldn’t have this same service with any other venue. Would definitely recommend!Sent on 03/19/2020

My experience getting married here at The Alexandria Ballrooms was more than I could have ever dreamed of. Needless to say, the venue is just absolutely stunning, a hidden gem.Sent on 06/09/2018
For me, it was more about the experience itself. I didn't have a full-on planner, although with Jemma's many suggestions Jen So with Campfire Events was so amazing for my day of services campfire-events.com .. Jemma helped me find her along with a few other vendors listed on the preferred vendor list. She always is such a pleasure to speak to and is so responsive, unlike other venues I was initially looking at. Just her service alone was what truly made my experience. I will truly miss working with her.

The Alexandria Ballrooms were the first venue we toured for our wedding and I was sold on the spot- we saw a couple more places but nothing compared to the grandeur and elegance of this amazing, historic venue.Sent on 02/07/2020
Jemma was our liaison and she is an absolute gem, She is so sweet and responsive and was present on the day of our wedding to help and make sure things went off without a hitch. She patiently answered all my millions of questions and really helped to accommodate us throughout the whole process.
The venue overall is a gorgeous blank slate- they provide chairs and tables and the rest is up to you. This is something that really appealed to my family and I since we were able to bring in our own decorations and catering- also the venue goes until 1am- much later than most other LA venues that end at 10 or 11.
If you are looking for your wedding to be an absolute showstopper then look no further!
