A Beautiful Wedding Day
My daughter had her wedding at The Wilshire Grand on December 30, 2018. It was an absolutely beautiful day. The facility was beautiful, the food was outstanding and the drinks were terrific. All of the guests truly enjoyed the reception and still talk about what a terrific time they had.
Joe'l, the wedding consultant, was extremely helpful right from the beginning. She was always positive, helping guide us and readily answering any concerns or questions right up to the wedding. Joe'l made sure that everything ran smoothly the day of the wedding too.
Amanda, who was the bridal attendant couldn't have done a more outstanding job. She took care of every little detail from the day prior to the wedding up until the time we left the day after. Every need was met. We didn't have a thing too worry about.
My husband and I were truly able to enjoy our daughter's wedding!! I truly couldn't have asked for more.

We loved the Wilshire
We just got married at the Wilshire in November and could not possibly recommend them enough.Sent on 12/31/2018
Everyone we met was so helpful. We used the in-house florist and photographer and did everything through them. John (the catering director and our point person for the whole weekend) was unbelievable through the whole process, with his attention to detail and the amount of time he spent working with us. We had endless questions for him and he was so responsive every time.
Then on the big weekend the whole staff was amazing, Angela the bridal attendant in particular who did everything (including literally sewing my tux shirt and my wife’s bustle back together after a hectic stretch on the dance floor). The food was also great—everything from cocktail hour through dessert.
The venue itself was beautiful, and we loved how convenient it was to have the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, afterparty and hotel rooms for our guests all in one spot without even having to go outside.
We just can’t speak highly enough about everyone involved in making our wedding at the Wilshire so special.
