We cannot recommend La Venta highly enough! It is unlike any other place. I saw that someone compared it to Monte Carlo and that is the perfect description! Every square inch is perfectly cared for...the flowers are amazing.....sort of "elegant cottage" --varied, colorful and abundant. The staff was welcoming every time we wanted to visit before our big day. We were assigned Leslie as our coordinator and she was totally dedicated to our complete happiness. She kept track of every detail and cheerfully kept our very large and talkative wedding party and families close to the schedule. She worked with our vendors to be sure every part of the wedding went just as we wanted. Finally, the food, prepared by NYC Food Company was fantastic! Many people commented on how great the stations were. We are thrilled with the result! The view is the best anywhere and the lovely grounds and the pretty architecture created many unique photo opportunities. The flower-lined path from the Bride's private cottage to the ceremony has to be the most picturesque ever!

My husband and I were married at La Venta two weeks ago. From the moment we toured the beautiful property, we knew it was the right place for us to start our life together.

The location: The ceremony location has a spectacular view. Our guests were blown away. The gardens are fantastic for photos. Even in September there were many lovely flowers in bloom. The building itself feels so vintage and intimate. The beautiful fireplace makes a great backdrop for special dances. The dining room has a wonderful view also, and is perfect for a small intimate wedding. We had around 70, and it was absolutely perfect.

The Food:The New York Food Company food was SPECTACULAR. First, they invite their brides and grooms to a quarterly tasting event, so you get to try more of their menu than you would elsewhere. Plus, it's a fun date night, courtesy of NYFC. BTW, our guests are still RAVING about how yummy the food was. Most said it was better than some 5 star restaurants they'd been too. All agreed it was the best wedding food they'd ever had.

La Venta Staff: Everyone at La Venta was extremely helpful. From my early emails with Mike and Tim, to my interaction with the servers and bartenders, everyone took great care of us and our guests.

Most importantly, our coordinator, Leslie, was AMAZING. She made sure everything--down to the last detail--ran smoothly and that we had the beautiful and romantic wedding we dreamed of. She even made sure that my husband and I remembered to eat! She had a tray of appetizers and champagne delivered to the bridal cottage after the ceremony, while we were having a moment alone. She also made sure that during dinner (while we were hopping from table to table) we knew when each course came out so that we didn't miss any of the yummy food. She also packed us a sampler of all the delicious food to take home with us. It was a wonderful touch! We felt so well taken care of.

Bottom line: If you want a dream wedding, La Venta is your venue

I, quite simply, can't recommend La Venta Inn enough. Everything they do is all about class. It's a phenomenal venue with a view to die for. It's just the right size with plenty of outdoor space, but with an intimate dance floor and dining room. We loved the history of the place, but that view... it's all about that view!

But the staff, the food and the organization together makes it a package that can't be beat. We had such a phenomenal time at our wedding and our coordinator, Leslie, was fantastic to work with. She made sure everything was set up correctly, ran like a well-oiled machine... AND... she made sure we were taken care of. We adore her.

The food was delicious! Truly. They took dishes I'd had before and put a twist on them that made me feel I'd had them for the first time. From the appetizers to the desserts... every bite was delicious... and the service from the staff top notch.

We just really appreciated knowing everything was going to be taken care of. We both have a great deal of respect and admiration for how La Venta takes care of it's guests... they sure took care of us. ;-)

We look forward to stopping back there and enjoying the view again on our 1st Anniversary. Thank you so very much to everyone at La Venta Inn...

Loved this venue!! Was married in November with perfect weather, perfect setting and perfect food!! Couldn't have asked for more, most breathtaking views of the city and ocean. Grew up here my whole life and only dreamed of being married here. The staff and wedding coordinator (Tim Kennedy) really set the bar for other venues in the area! Amazing. Thanks again for a memorable wedding night!!

How do I begin to explain La Venta Inn..........
My husband and I are from Australia. We decided that we wanted a wedding abroad and we picked California as our destination. We decided to give everyone two years notice to save.By organising a wedding outside of Australia, I knew I had a lot of research to do. My Husband and I came across La Venta Inn on the internet and read all the reviews and finally got in contact with Tim Kennedy. I thought that it would be a nightmare trying to arrange a wedding from another country. Tim was very quick to get back to my emails which made my husband and I feel that our wedding was just as important as anyone else's. With emails going back and forward for months, we decided to come for a trip over before the wedding to check all the vendors out.
From the moment we walked into La Venta Inn, we felt like we were in a dream. We had not seen anything like this before. The breath taking view and spectacular Spanish villa was Amazing.... I repeat AMAZING :-)
Everyone at La Venta Inn was so nice, organised and accommodating.
We were assigned Tim Kennedy as our wedding co-ordinator. Tim was always organised and helped us when decisions needed to be made. On the day of the wedding Tim, was always by our side to make sure everything ran smoothly.
We are so glad we had the opportunity to have Tim Kennedy as our wedding co-ordinator and to have our reception at La Venta Inn. We had just over 20 people come from Australia and the United Kingdom and we have had comments from all of them saying how lovely the staff are at La Venta and how beautiful La Venta Inn is and it is nothing like they have ever seen before.
To all you future brides out there considering La Venta Inn, you will not be disappointed with La Venta Inn, you are so lucky to have a venue as beautiful as this in your country. May your wedding be as breathtaking as ours was.
Thankyou to everyone at La Venta Inn, New York Food Company and Tim Kennedy.

I had my wedding at La Venta Inn, in May 2013. Everything about the event was absolutely perfect! The weather was amazing and allowed us to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Our coordinator Tim Kennedy ran our wedding so smoothly, it was like a dream. The food (by New York Food Company) and cake were delicious!!! My groom and I made sure we took our time to enjoy all of it and we did, we were able to have a taste of everything served. Mostly due to Tim bringing us appetizers while we got away from the party in the bridal cottage after the ceremony while our guests were enjoying cocktail hour. He really made sure we were taken care of and fed. Our DJ rocked the party ‘till 11 PM and we had no issues with the noise restrictions at La Venta due to the surrounding residential area. So many of our guests are gushing over how beautiful our venue was and how much fun they had at our wedding. I've had a few people tell us that we should get married all over again and again 'cause they want to relive the day. I hope that I am lucky enough to attend a wedding at La Venta Inn as a guest in the future or else I might not be able to resist attending any (and every) bridal show hosted there. LOL It is just so perfect!

The only words of caution I have to give (and this could happen anywhere, so I am not in any way blaming La Venta Inn) is to make sure to have your coordinator either lock the room where your gifts will be stored or better yet assign someone from your wedding party to immediately put them away in a vehicle after guests have arrived and deposited them on your gift table. We found out the day after our wedding that our envelopes (monetary gifts) went missing the night of our event and I had done neither of the above suggestions. It is a shame that this happened but there is no way it could put a damper on our wedding because everything else was so magical and perfect that we did not allow it to ruin our day.

La Venta was the perfect spot for my dream wedding! The entire process with La Venta was so easy and they were so accommodating to all of our requests. Mike Halish was our coordinator and he made every vision I had come true and was a true professional. I loved that we had the entire venue to ourselves, verses having a wedding at a hotel which is open to the public. The food was amazing and almost all of our guests told us we had the best wedding food they had ever had. I also loved that the ballroom/dance floor is separate from the dining room. It allowed people to get out of their seats and explore the property instead of just sitting at their table the entire night. We added the "late night bites" option of fresh baked cookies and milk shakes which was a total hit. Mike and the entire La Venta team were amazing and I would highly recommend having your wedding there! They are the best!!

We added the "late night bites" option of fresh baked cookies and milk shakes which was a total hit. Mike and the entire La Venta team were amazing and I would highly recommend having your wedding there! They are the best!! Read less

Our wedding ceremony and reception at La Venta Inn was more than a dream come true! All of our guests told us that the evening was like a real-life fairytale wedding! The spectacular view of the pacific ocean and coast from the ceremony site at La Venta is absolutely breathtaking. We had guests from all over the country fly in for our destination wedding. Everyone's jaw dropped the second that they saw the view. My husband and I had the same experience the first time that we visited La Venta. I stumbled across this venue while I was searching for the perfect "Southern California Wedding Beach Location". My husband and I flew to So. Cal for a weekend to look at the venues that we had found. La Venta Inn blew the other venues out of the water! The moment that we stepped on to the property- we knew that this was THE PLACE. Not only is the venue picture perfect, but the entire staff at La Venta Inn and New York Food Company was absolutely incredible to work with. Kelly was the first staff member that we met with when we decided on the venue. She was so sweet and very helpful. Mike was our wedding coordinator for the entire event. Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with. I always thought that planning a destination wedding was going to be stressful and complicated. Mike and the rest of the La Venta staff made the whole planning process a breeze! It was shocking how easy it was to plan every little detail with Mike's help and experience to bring all of the ideas to life. The food and cake made by NYFC were so delicious! Mike suggested that we have tray passed mini milkshakes and mini french fries with Ketchup toward the end of the evening. What a great idea! Our guests loved this!!! I could write a novel about all of the amazing experiences we had with La Venta. This place is worth every single penny!
Thank you, everyone at La Venta, for making our wedding day a DREAM COME TURE!

I started looking for venues early on in the wedding process and it was difficult to find a place that was both beautiful and affordable until I found La Venta Inn.

To be honest the photos online, on Yelp don't really do it justice. It is definitely a venue you HAVE TO GO SEE. I happened to go in early Fall and the view was absolutely breathtaking driving in. Since Day 1, the staff have been so accommodating and friendly. Though everyone at La Venta Inn (or from the ones I've met) were extremely qualified, I took the advice of everyone here on Yelp and specifically asked for Tim. You are actually assigned to a coordinator, but you can request it and I stopped at nothing to get TIm. I called and emailed and I was had the privilege of working with him. It was an added bonus that his daughter's name was Mia too :)

Working with Tim was such a breeze. I am not going to lie, having two extremely organized people working together (Tim and myself) I think it was made the process so easy. He was prompt with his responses to my questions and always made sure to reassure me that everything would work out. When we had our 3-4 hour meetings, I would throw out so many ideas and he would have comments for every single one (without fail) which helped me make my decisions rather quickly.

The food choices are absolutely amazing. The chef there works with you to create your perfect menu.

I will leave this review with three things:

1) Choosing WHEN to have your wedding at this venue is important. Mine was the beginning of summer and because of the weird weather we have been having, I thought it was going to be hot, but it was moderate and a little windy...not what I expected. Still a breathtaking view though...For some reason the sky was clearer during the fall and winter months than summer..so something to think about.

2) Choosing the RIGHT coordinator for you. I had met with someone else and corresponded with her several times, but speaking to Tim on the phone twice and the reviews he received on YELP and Wedding Wire just did it for me. I never met him, but I just had to have him!

3) Size of Venue: This is definitely a venue for more intimate gatherings and I ended up having about 110 people attend and it was perfect. This venue accommodates more than that, but any more and I feel it would be a little cramped.

So, there you go future brides! Have your wedding at La Venta Inn, you won't regret it.
