Thank you for your interest in Occasions, El Segundo for your special event needs. Occasions is a 1920’s reception room and garden featuring classic styling and casual elegance. Our beautiful garden is surrounded by trees and a border of multicolored blooms. A flagstone path creates the perfect entryway to our beautiful iron gazebo while a waterfall and stream flows into a koi pond accentuate the tranquil setting. At night, the starry sky seems to come all the way down to the ground, thanks to thousands of Tivoli lights glowing in the surrounding hedges, arches and trees. Our elegant Heritage Room boasts antique brickwork, moldings, french doors and huge skylights that floods the room with natural light. Read less

Excellent place to have a small, quaint wedding. It felt like The Secret Garden. The food was delicious. Audrey was a pleasure to work with. All of our guests loved how intimate our wedding was, and it felt really magical. My husband was very happy with how everything turned out, and it was so easy. We had neautral linens with antique champagne colors.

This is a quaint beautiful gem in El Segundo. I had never heard of it before getting a reccomendation from my florist. When my fiance and I went to check it out, it was amazingly beautiful and perfect for our smaller wedding of 100 guests. The food was fantastic and it was just perfect for our secret garden theme. Audrey is a pleasure to work with.

Audrey and her staff were fantastic! We had our reception at Occasions earlier this month and we loved it. Throughout all of the planning, she was great about responding to my never-ending questions and accommodating for numerous visits with my family. She gave us lots of feedback about everything including linens, DJ, flowers, bar, setup, etc.

We were able to provide our own alcohol (selling point for my dad). Everyone raved about the food that night and weeks after the reception. While I didn't get to see the garden in the back on the night of the event (too busy mingling and enjoying the party) even though it was another selling point, our guests really enjoyed it for cocktail hour. The space was perfect for our wedding size, 125, without feeling too crowded or too much open space. And since my husband and I were too busy to eat much of our fabulous dinner that night, Audrey graciously agreed to cook us the same meal for our anniversary next year :)

Occasions is a beautiful site for ceremony and or reception. When we visited Occasions, we thought it was perfect for us. The garden is intimate and the reception area is perfect for small to medium size weddings. The staff was great to work with and worked with us to reach our price limit. They are very professional and friendly. All of our guests loved the food and venue.

Our wedding ceremony and reception at Occasions far exceeded our wildest expectations! Audrey O'Connor and Jennifer Aguilar (wedding coordinator) were absolute gems to work with right from the start. The venue was recommended to my husband and me by a friend that DJs weddings. We took one look at the site, and from the charming 1920s beauty of the interior to the lovely garden, gazebo and koi pond, knew without a doubt that this was where we had to have our wedding ceremony and reception. In addition to the charming setting, the food (catered by Audrey and her staff) is amazing, with pricing that offers lots and lots of bang for your buck. Audrey's background with a local, high-end catering company shows through in every item on their menu. Delicious-- and far better than the food at many of the region's other high-end venues. As our coordinator, Jennifer was invaluable at confirming and coordinating the details with all of our vendors. She was also a great help in offering suggestions and ideas for our ceremony, logistics and reception. In fact, I would leave meetings with her with several new items added to my 'To Do List'! All of her creative ideas really enhanced our overall experience. By the time our big day rolled around, we had nothing to worry about, and everything went off smoothly, thanks to their experience and professionalism. I wholeheartedly endorse Occasions as a unique and beautiful wedding ceremony and reception site, AND Audrey O'Connor and Jennifer Aguilar for their professionalism, experience, and commitment to each and every one of their couples!

When we saw the exposed brick wall inside the Occasions dining room we knew the place was something special. The garden area with its white lights was perfect for our cocktail hour. With 130 guests it was cozy, not crowded. We had minimal decor which brought out the character of the venue. The food was amazing, the service, professional. The undivided attention we received from the staff was great – we felt like royalty. At no point in the evening did we feel any stress. We enjoyed every minute. And so did our guests. We received multiple compliments on the food and the charm of the place. Thanks Occasions for our wonderful reception!

I found Occasions LA by accident when my mom forwarded a list of LA-area garden wedding sites. We visited a few times and booked in February 2008. Ultimately, we had our 20 Sept 2008 wedding there. The venue is BEAUTIFUL. The reception area easily accommodated our 100 guests; it's original 1920's construction with exposed brick and crown molding and a full wall of french windows (you save on flowers because this place is so freakin' pretty!). The garden - where the ceremony takes place - is also great; it's all twinkling lights and tall trees for an evening event. The food is AMAZING. We're still getting compliments today. The staff is professional, courteous, responsive, and experienced. They accommodated every desire we had. Included in the price for a wedding is a day-of coordinator who will make sure all the vendors know where to be and when to be there, and who runs the show at the rehearsal and the day-of. Stephen & Audrey (the owners) are darling people who clearly enjoy what they do! Anybody planning a small(ish) wedding (~100 people) would do well to work with Occasions LA!

Occasions is a wedding venue that exudes understated beauty and elegance. When we began our search for a wedding venue we wanted a garden setting and Occasions’ garden exceeded our expectations. From the beautiful organic outdoor ceremony to the colonial style indoor reception our wedding was filled with a mood of joy and festivity. Stephen O’Connor is a pleasure to work with – his attention to detail with the gourmet cuisine and willingness to create your dream menu is unparalleled. The staff at Occasion’s are attentive and passionate about creating a personalized wedding that appeals to the unique bride and groom. Our guests all commented on how our wedding was special, unpretentious and flawless. I can honestly say that our wedding was the happiest day of our lives thus far. Occasion’s support, guidance and compassion allowed us to create a day that reflected our personalities and our love! Thank you to everyone at Occasions for making our wedding day so perfect. I highly recommend Occasions to anyone looking for a wedding venue with magical ambiance, excellent food and attentive service within a reasonable budget.
