    The Faculty Center was the perfect place for my son's wedding, at an excellent value. The staff could not have been more helpful, the food was absolutely delicious, and the venue provided tons of space and flexibility.

    Wedding reception began in the Rose Garden with hors d'oeuvres (lamb chops, goat cheese pizza, eggplant tapenade, stuffed mushrooms) which I recommend highly. Dinner was served in the California room followed by dancing to a live band. The event was exceptional -- the Rose Garden setting was beautiful and admired by guests and the dinner of medallions of filet mignon and grilled salmon were beautifully presented and delicious. Guests were very impressed with the Faculty Center as a venue and with the wonderful service the staff provided throughout. My family could not have been more pleased

    Everything about the experience was amazing. Ali was my handler/coordinator and he was so gracious and helpful and patient. We were on a budget so hotel wedding prices (in LA) were totally out. And I didn't want to worry about trying to do something outside with my own caterers etc. The Faculty Center was the best of all worlds. The ceremony was outside on a beautiful patio and the reception was inside in a room that no longer looked like a conference room! We used a different patio for passed hors deouvres and cocktail hour and it was just beautiful. And we had a separate room for the bridal party to get ready and relax etc. I seriously can't complain about any of it. People are still telling me how good the food was and how nice the staff were. And the dessert table was INCREDIBLE! Also, prices for everything were incredibly reasonable. Open bar for 100 was under $2000. Nuff said!!! Everyone who worked there was amazing: Ali, Wali, Ramon! Everyone throughout the entire process (not just that day). If you are looking for an alternative wedding location to the standard hotel ballroom, this is the place. It is just as beautiful and nowhere near the inflated prices! And the personalized service is so much more than you'd get from a ritzy hotel.
