The venue is exactly what I wanted for my wedding! It is so unique and there are so many different things you can do with the space. Kara was awesome to work with and definitely went above and beyond to help us out in the planning process. Marvimon was the number one thing ALL our guests were talking about!

We had our wedding (75 guests) at Marvimon and it was a great venue for a small wedding. That being said, it's a pretty expensive place for such a small wedding! You have to bring in all your own vendors and that adds up fast. The good thing is you have control over who you use; the bad thing is it's expensive.

TACT (the management company) does have a lot of rules, which you must abide by. We didn't really have a problem with them. The only thing that disappointed us was we couldn't keep our dog there for the reception. She was allowed to be in the ceremony but had to be removed within 10 minutes after the ceremony.

There were some things that I wish were different about the venue: the number of restrooms (only 1 inside; 2 outside but most people didn't know about them), the awkwardness of the long dining room, and lack of a real dance floor, and the fact that the outdoor bar doesn't have a water tap (which they didn't tell us about and we only found out during cocktail hour when the bartender couldn't provide water). We also had an issue with the valet company (which they make you hire and is not included in the booking cost) who parked our guests' cars on the street instead of in a lot like we were told. Then some random guy crashed into 6 of our guests' cars during the reception. That was just one of those things that you couldn't anticipate but might have been avoided if the valets hadn't park the cars there.

Overall we loved the venue and we don't regret having our wedding there. It's beautiful and unique and way more interesting than your usual church and hotel ballroom wedding.

I had both my ceremony and reception here on 10.10.10. Originally we had wanted to book their other sister venue The Smogshoppe but didn't reserve our date in time. Marvimon was smaller and more intimate whereas Smogshoppe is located in Culver City and could accommodate about 50-100 more people but for a higher rental rate as well. It all worked out for the best since most people live south of Downtown LA. I liked that we could have both the ceremony and reception here and that the rental hours were from 12noon to 12midnight for me giving us plenty of time to set up and have both events as well as time for the take down and egress.

In it of itself Marvimon is just a beautiful space. It's lush and open and industrial and if you appreciate artist's lofts you will fall in love with this place. When you walk in you can feel the character of this place. It has very high ceilings and a huge screen against the back wall, a built-in sound system, and very eclectic looking kitchen area; the indoor space just flows over to the outside patio where they feature a lush vertical garden.

We decorated the venue to compliment the space's uniqueness with vintage colored glass goblets and vases, peacock feathers, tropical flowers and made use of the high beams by hanging white pom poms in various sizes with fishing wire. There was plenty of space to get ready, a full service bar area, a handsome workable kitchen area for the caterer, generous space for the band and the DJ and even for a photo booth.

I cannot stress enough what a spectacular space Marvimon is. Our vision for our wedding just came alive here and we now have memories for a lifetime of that one beautiful perfect evening.

Marvimon Productions was a breeze to work with. They are not very flexible with rates and services but I there is no other venue like the Smog Shoppe. It is truly unique and amazing. We loved having our wedding here.

Marvimon is absolutely gorgeous and was the perfect backdrop for our event. We wanted a small, intimate, relaxed wedding/reception and that's exactly what we got. Sherry and Miguel were wonderfully responsive. The only challenge we had was scheduling our design meeting since they only schedule meetings on certain days. We worked it out, though and were very pleased with how everything turned out. I would highly recommend Marvimon.

This was the perfect venue for us, I could not have been more pleased with how our wedding turned out! Loop, Sherry, and Miguel were a pleasure to work with. They made the whole experience so easy! This space is so beautiful, there was no need to add much. Everything you could possibly need is already built-in. Well worth it!

Sherry and Miguel, the owners, and Jeff Fleming of Tact Event Management, the site management company, are incredible to work with. They are very responsive, understanding, and easy to work with. The venue itself is AMAZING and one of the things we got the most compliments on for our wedding. It is a unique and wonderful space to play in and my photographers loved being able to capture so many moments in just one spot. Their team was always very professional and though it took up a bit more of our budget than we anticipated (due to their required valet service company, AA Valet), it was well worth it. They do have quite a few rules (candles, music, etc.), but they are easy to work around with enough planning.
