I recently had my wedding at The Westchester and it was an amazing experience. The venue coordinator Becca is one of the kindest and sweetest vendors you will ever meet. She went above and beyond for me during the entire wedding planning process. She responded to my every whim promptly and my wedding day would have not been the same without her. Wedding planning is a stressful time but the team over at The Westchester made it a much smoother process. The venue easily holds 300 people and is a beautiful blank canvas to create your vision with. I am not easy to please yet I have no complaints.
The Westchester Price Rates
We've worked the W several times now and the looks of the venue inside are top notch! Do no let the rather plain look of the exterior fool you. It's accommodating for larger crowds is a plus in Bakersfield. Weddings, bigger company parties, and Formals have all been handled with professionalism, style and a personal touch by the venue manager Ms. Rebecca. She is arguably their strongest asset. Always accommodating for set up & breakdown as well! The Westchester is a must when shopping for your special event venue!
