About The Victorian

The Victorian is a historic wedding venue located in Santa Monica, California that blends old fashion glamour with contemporary and coastal flair. Originally built in 1892 as a residence, the two-story building eventually moved to its current location in 1973 and became a prime pocket of nostalgic architecture.

Facilities and Capacity
The Victorian has over 15,000 square feet of event space, including beautiful landscaped grounds that are perfect for an outdoor ceremony. It has a brick path leading to the front door which is lined with candles and twinkle lights at night, allowing for a very grand entrance. Throughout the main floor event room there is decor that is characteristic of the late 19th century with a mix of classic artwork and antique furnishings. There are also two patios and a veranda that can be used as a pre-function area as well as many indoor and outdoor spaces for a sit-down reception or buffet. The intimate main dining room is framed by tall windows and is often used as the couple's table, opening up to an inviting terrace that is enclosed for warmth and comfort. The upstairs area has four rooms that blend together perfectly, offering an intimate yet lively setting that comes with its own bar.

    We got married at The Victorian and it was amazing!

    We primarily worked with Holly and she was phenomenal from start to finish. She answered all my questions and more. She made the entire experience wonderful and was so flexible and accommodating.

    The food was phenomenal, the service was great, the bar is the best around (everyone LOOOOVED the bar)! They make great specialty drinks!

    The venue itself is a historical home and beautiful - very intimate feel; it's two stories and has space inside and outside. You don't need to decorate very much because it's so beautiful just the way it is.

    The lighting is set up beautifully, the votive candles are included, a beautiful chandelier... makes for stunning photos.

    The groomsmen got ready at "The Basement", which is their bar downstairs. They offered the guys drinks while they got ready and took photos. The ambiance there is really cool.

    The guests were greeted with champagne and well attended to. As the bride and groom, we had a server attend to us all night, making sure we were well fed and always had water and/or a drink in hand. That was REALLY nice, as it's hard to make time to even grab an appetizer!

    The venue is only 2 blocks from the beach, so we were able to break away for 10 minutes and get beautiful beach photos.

    Overall, phenomenal experience!

    What an amazing venue. Perfect in every sense of the word. Our planners, Holly and Aisha, delivered everything they said they would plus so much more. Our guests marvelled at our choice of venue - and we could not be happier. (The only sad thing is not seeing Holly and Aisha as much, but, we have two new friends -- yay!)

    As for the food, the salmon was moist and perfectly cooked. The appetizer platters won high praise from our friends and family.

    We also loved how the event moved from outdoors to upstairs, with the downstairs patio and dining room in between. The wait staff was extremely friendly, courteous and attentive. Is it too soon to start planning our vow renewal here?
