We had both our wedding ceremony and reception here in April of 2013-and we couldn't be happier at the way everything turned out! This venue is not your traditional wedding venue, as it's a performing arts center. We were looking for a venue that would allow us to bring in our own caterer and alcohol, and not surprisingly, there are few, if any, venues that will allow you to do both without charging you an exhorbitant fee making it financially ridiculous to go with an outside caterer/bring your own booze. You can here,but with some caveats-keep in mind that you CAN bring your own caterer in, but if it's not off their "preferred vendor" list, they will charge you $750. Trust me, this is not a lot in the grand scheme of things, and you get the caterer/food YOU want. As for booze, you can BYOB but it has to be served by an insured bartender. So no, you cannot have your cousin's friend's brother bartend at your wedding unless he's insured! As for rentals, the upside to having your wedding here is that they have all of their own place settings, silverware and drinkware, which, of course, you have to rent if you want to use them. However, it's pretty darn cheap to use their stuff, so do it. They also have basic round tables and some rather not-so-cute-but-comfy standard chairs you can use if you'd like. The downside: despite the fact that they have all of the above-mentioned items, you MUST take coordinate your own linen rentals to cover said tables. We had to rent our own table linens for the round tables and rectangle tables, and opted to rent chiavari chairs through our caterer who got a BOMB deal on them. This place is great if you are type-a like me and crazy organized, or have a wedding coordinator you've hired to deal with the nitty gritty details. This place is NOT great for you to have your wedding if you are expecting the venue to do everything. You will not be disappointed if you have your wedding here, though-we absolutely loved it!

I chose the Norris because we had flexibility in bringing in our own alcohol as well as choosing our caterer either through their preferred list or our own (for a fee). We ended up choosing the one they recommended since we had issues with the one we originally wanted. Anyway, the money we saved for having an open bar alone was major since we have quite a few friends/family who are hard core drinkers. In addition, the entire pavilion is available for you which makes it private for your party in comparison to hotel weddings. Only down side is parking is across the street at the mall which some guests complained about... But i parked in ViP since I'm the star bride! :)

The venue itself is very nice and they had a dark wood interior which really made my red fall wedding uplighting stand out and look amazing. Also, during the planning process, the Norris provides their event supervisor June Yates. She's a pro at weddings and helps you develop your timeline as well as how you want everything set up during the reception. If you don't have a wedding planner for those types of details like I didn't, it helped a lot and there was no additional fee for her guidance!

All in all, I was extremely happy with the services they provided. It was close to the church we got married in, we got to save money on open bar, and the venue was all ours. I would definitely recommend the Norris to anyone!

Norris Pavilion is a gem hidden in Palos Verdes. As a non-profit organization they are really there to make your wedding beautiful and not preoccupied with overcharging and making money. June, their on-site coordinator, is very professional and experienced. She was so sweet and constantly focused on our wants and needs. The space is perfect for huge weddings and with their sound/light packages the place really glowed and stood out for the big day. We were able to do a ceremony and reception with 250 guests. Everyone loved the venue and it was such a pleasure working with all the staff there.

I was recently married at the Norris Pavilion and would definitely recommend the venue. I thought it was a little pricey but it was worth it. We were able to bring in our own alcohol which saved us money on that end. June did a good job at coordinating the ceremony which we had in the courtyard. Everyone at my wedding raved about the place and thought it was a great venue.

Wonder place to have a wedding reception, i had 160 quests, it wasn't to large, but it had 25 foot tall ceilings! I rented all my dinnerware from them, and the dance floor. They have a lighting tech, and audio visual equipment for a slide show as well. They have a list of caterers to choose from, but you can bring in any caterer you want for a small fee. I chose Restaurant Christine, they were wonderful.
