Tivoli was perfect for our wedding! They accommodated our needs and wishes and worked to ensure that our day went smooth and just as we desired. The cake that they included was amazing! The decor, tables, flowers, and linens were all perfect. Couldn't have asked for a more organized and perfect day. The food was also really good. Great value as well! Thanks!

Every person was amazing. Patrick was a great help and kept everything on track and moving without being pushy. As the bride anything I needed there was a Tivoli staff member by my side, from helping me change my shoes to attending to guests. I would recommend this venue to anyone holding an important event.

Tivoli Terrace was AMAZING. I have a wheelchair and from the start they were very accommodating of my needs and helped me to create a day that was beautiful and hassle-free. In every other matter they were great, always answering my questions right away, even when I accidentally called them too early in the morning because I was on east coast time. I got a zillion compliments from my guests, especially about the food. I had a lot going on that day, but in amongst everything I also appreciated the food - amazing. They don't offer many choices for the wedding cake (2) which irked me a little, but the carrot cake they do have was delicious and it was easy for me to bring in other cupcakes for a variety of flavors, and they were arranged as if they were part of the plan all along. The value is great for what you get - ceremony, reception, food, decor, cake, and planning services.

They even let me have my 2 chihuahuas be part of my ceremony and reception!

Tivoli Terrace was an amazing place to have our wedding! We were busy with school, graduation, moving, and lots of other life events and Tivoli Terrace made it extremely easy to have our wedding day be exactly what we wanted.

The food was delicious, beer, wine and champagne were all fantastic, and the calm demeanor of the staff made us feel that the details would work out great, and they absolutely did! They were very professional and the day exceeded our expectations.

Me and my husband are so thankful we chose Tivoli Terrace! They were always so professional and helpful throughout the whole wedding planning process, as well as on the big day. Patrick and Nichole rock! They made our wedding day literally flawless. Every guest commented that ours was the best wedding they had ever attended...it ran so smoothly, the food was delicious, the venue is gorgeous, I could go on! And the biggest thing for me as the bride was Patrick was right there the whole time, walking us through everything, updating us throughout the wedding on the timeline and what was coming next (cake cutting, first dance, toasts, etc). He directed everything so it went so smoothly. I hear stories of the bride and groom being unable to eat because they were too busy, or not remembering much from the wedding because it was such a blur...well Patrick made sure to allow us time to eat and mingle yet hit everything on the itinerary and more! He gave us such good advice throughout the big day, it really enhanced our experience. I could not have imagined our wedding going any better! Thank you Patrick, Nichole, and the rest of the Tivoli Terrace staff! You are all amazing and made our big day truly magical! Could not recommend you higher! Bravo!

My experience with Tivoli definitely exceeded my expectations! Many locations similar to this in the OC area are at least double the price, with not-so-great service (so I've heard). Any time I contacted Tivoli, they got right back to me. The wedding itself went off without a hitch. I had guests comment to me on how awesome the staff was. How many brides get THAT comment?! I also got lots of compliments on the food. Portions were pleasantly large--good for soaking up the booze. Though they didn't provide the DJ, they put me in touch with a GREAT DJ (Just Dance Events). Really, I wouldn't have changed a thing about our night. It was perfect and that's largely thanks to Patrick and Nicole and everyone else at Tivoli!

Everyone at Tivoli Terrace, especially Patrick and Nicole , we're amazing, beyond our expectations. They made our day so enjoyable by taking so much of the regular wedding stresses off of us and handling them. The process went so smoothly and the day of our wedding seemed flawless. I was so grateful to have found and worked with such professional, thoughtful and sweet staff at Tivoli Terrace. I will surely recommend them to any future brides in my circle of family and friends!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Tivoli Terrace! I just had my wedding there (for about 125 guests), and everything went perfectly. All of my guests were blown away by the unique beauty of the venue, the responsiveness of the staff and the quality of the food and wine. I'll admit, at first I was a little unsure that a place that handles everything all-in-one (the food, flowers, decor, etc...) could be as high quality as it was. And then, WOW - it was more beautiful and well-managed than way more expensive weddings I have attended. I also appreciated that they incorporated all of our personal touches into the decor. We made some signage, etc. to put our own stamp on the wedding, and they handled it all. It looked better than if I had arranged it myself! Patrick and the whole staff will take good care of you and make sure your event goes exactly the way you dreamed it would be. If you are thinking of having your wedding at Tivoli, I'd highly recommend you do it!

Our daughter's wedding at Tivoli Terrace far exceeded our expectations and was a wonderful event. Patrick, Nicole and all the staff were professional, thoughtful, and thorough with all the details, which allowed for a magical wedding for everyone that attended. We couldn't be happier that we had chosen Tivoli Terrace as the venue for our daughter's wedding. The food was gourmet quality and the carrot cake was fabulous, hats off to the chef. We received so many compliments from our guests on not only the delicious food selections but also on the uniqueness and earthly beauty of the Chapel and Terrace areas. Everywhere you look there was something special to view, creating such a romantic evening for all. We truly appreciate all the effort from everyone that made this special event happen.

Once we saw the venue at Tivoli Terrace we fell in love. The place was well set up just how it was showed in the pictures and all or our details were perfectly placed prior to the event. All the staff was very helpful especially Patrick. He was with us throughout the night telling us exactly what was to happen next and giving us options. We really did feel like were well taken care of. I highly recommend a wedding here if you are looking for a more intimate, garden style venue. The lighting in the tent was absolutely stunning. They answered countless emails and week after week from wedding information to details pertaining specifically to our venue, Tivoli Terrace. Patrick went out of his way to put things into our car before leaving, getting people where they need to be at the appropriate times and finding a lost earring from my bride. Please take this review serious as I always post reviews when it warrants either good or bad.

They were very attentive, knowledgeable, and very friendly. We couldn't have been more happier with this choice in venue. Tivoli Terrace also catered the wedding and their food was out of this world. As the Bride, I didn't get an opportunity to try as much of the food as I would have liked but I heard from all the guests that it was delicious! I would definitely recommend Tivoli Terrace as a venue for any type of event. It is stunningly beautiful but also very intimate. I will look back on my wedding with fond memories at Tivoli Terrace.

The staff was wonderful. They had all the details taken care of. I didn't attend the planning meetings, being from out of town, but the result was fabulous, and any last minute concerns were taken care of immediately. The location is beautiful. Their cake was scrumptious, and food very good. We had a midday event, and it was so focused on the wedding and not just "party". Absolutely the best wedding (my son's) that I have ever been to. And cost-wise, I feel that it was extremely reasonable.

As most couples do, we spent hours researching where we wanted to have our wedding. We visited several venues and called and searched the internet even more. By luck would have it, a friend of ours visiting from out of town told us to ‘just go inside and check it out for a few minutes’. We did and we immediately fell in love. As soon as we walked out of the place, we looked at each other and said this is our place. We were done looking – it was that simple.

The staff – amazing. Patrick is the most thorough, organized, and relaxing coordinator you will ever find. He has done it a million times before so he knows exactly what both the bride and groom need to keep them relaxed and to keep the event going on time and smoothly. Not once did we worry about time or where we needed to be. He gave us everything we needed - from the biggest to the tiniest details. We can’t say enough about him. Diane was equally as impressive, attentive, and easy to work with. She helped us plan everything from the very beginning and helped us make the right choices!

The food – amazing. There is not much to say about the food except we had no less than twenty or so guests specifically mention how great the food is. Taste it and you’ll understand why there isn’t much to say about it except that it was fantastic and more than likely, the best food you have ever had (or will ever have) at a wedding! Period.

The venue itself – amazing. Everything about Tivoli Terrace is perfect for a wedding. From the separate ceremony site upstairs to the reception area below, the place is naturally decorated with a garden theme – (no need to spend really anything on flowers) – and it looks amazing. It is an outdoor venue so you definitely don’t feel stuffy inside a hotel ballroom or something similar. We had 78 guests and the place was the perfect size.

Because they come in package deals – with pretty darn good prices – we were able to knock out the venue, cake, catering, open bar,

The first visit to meet with Patrick, I knew this was the place for my wedding. The venue felt like "home", but so very romantic and the outdoor reception was absolutely perfect, AND Patrick - what can I say - you were amazing. I can't say enough about Nicole and Patrick - they were fantastic. I was a little nervous, shed some tears along with Mom and Sister, and Nicole was right there every step of the way. Miguel and I agree that our wedding was "perfect" in every sense of the word. I loved everything about Tivoli Terrace, and deep gratitude to Patrick and Nicole - who truly made this a special day. Nicole - you are awesome - and my family adores you and sends a big "THANK YOU"!

Tivoli Terrace is an amazing venue!! My husband and I are so happy that we chose to have our wedding there. When we first visited the venue, we loved the unique and intimate garden setting. That was one of the primary reasons we chose Tivoli Terrace, as well as the excellent value they provide. In addition, every staff member we met on our first visit was so welcoming and professional, and we felt very confident that they could help us plan the wedding of our dreams.

The planning process was so easy and stress free! Patrick and Diane, the two coordinators we worked the most with, always responded quickly to any questions we had, and made us feel at ease. So many things were included in our wedding package that we never felt stressed out trying to coordinate tons of vendors. Plus, the venue is already so beautiful that you don't need to worry about getting extra flowers or decorations.

Our wedding was absolutely perfect! Everything looked so beautiful, and Patrick went out of his way to add little touches here and there to accentuate our Indian-fusion theme. The food and wedding cake tasted amazing, and so many guests told us how much they enjoyed the food. The evening ran very smoothly, thanks to both Patrick and Diane, who ran the event. Our guests also remarked how attentive the service was, from the coordinators to the wait staff and bartender. It is clear that the staff at Tivoli Terrace are wedding pros and really know how to pull off a fantastic event.

We are so thankful to the Tivoli Terrace team for helping to make our wedding magical; they are a wonderful group of people. We highly recommend Tivoli Terrace to all couples looking for the perfect venue!

All event planners were tentative and responsive from the day I signed the contract up to the very end of our reception. We requested to practice our first dance and they were flexible enough to let us practice even while they were meeting with other clients. The only complaint I would have is the parking situation. Since the parking lot was full, there were a few of my guests that had trouble finding parking. This may only be a problem if you have a large guest count which we did. I think we were hitting maximum capacity. Other than that, we are VERY satisfied with the quality of Tivoli Terrace's services. The flower arrangements were beautiful and the event planners were fantastic. I was debating whether to hire a wedding planner but I'm so glad I didn't waste my money.

It was such an awesome experience planning my wedding and having my wedding at Tivoli Terrace. Everyone there is so nice. Diane was so helpful with our final detailing. Patrick and Nicole were the wedding coordinators at our wedding. Nicole is so sweet and it was fun working with her. She paid attention to all the details so the bride and groom can just enjoy their wedding. We met Nicole when we first visited Tivoli Terrace. We have been to other venues after, but we didn't find another venue with wedding coordinators as kind and welcoming as Nicole and Patrick. And that was really important to my husband and I . Patrick is really great. He really held everything together; he even bustled my dress! I was so impressed. He was running around doing some of the groomsman duties as well. I highly recommend this place. And the venue looked so gorgeous on our wedding day. We had so many people telling us how beautiful the wedding was. It was definitely the most beautiful wedding my husband and I have been to :) We are so glad we can say that about our wedding.

Patrick, Diane, and Nicole were all fantastic throughout the wedding planning process and the day of the wedding. They were extremely accommodating to my guests that have severe food allergies. All of my questions were answered promptly and completely. The set up was exactly how we wanted it. They really made my wedding day run smoothly and I was able to be completely stress free. Both my husband and I were very pleased with Tivoli Terrace.

Where do I begin with Tivoli Terrace and their coordinators...

I'll start by saying THANK YOU for making my night a dream come true!

Tivoli Terrace is affordable, food was great, ambience was spectacular, and organization on the day-of Pretty Darn Good! They will take pictures of your wedding and post on FB (at no add'l charge). I should know... I'm their No. 1 FB fan..... haha! ;o) I truly love everything about this establishment....... and I urge you, Brides, if Tivoli isn't your ideal... check out their sista' locations-The Hacienda and Tivoli Too! They are coordinated in similar ways, but with different ambience.... They're all extemely attentive and just want to make you happy on your day of....

Patrick and Nicole coordinated my wedding on 2/17/13 and they were AHH-mazing... Patrick kept me calm and orchestrated just about every move having to do with vendors and bridal party... He was funny and kept everything simple and light! His passion for coordinating weddings and managing on all levels is apparent... and appreciated (on my end)! Nicole was spectacular, also, she handled the second half of my wedding with such poise and direction.... she was kind and sweet!

The food and service was great! I especially LOVED the chicken florentine! The apps were great too!

The only thing I caution brides is ..... the night goes by sooo very fast.... this is a night you want to last forever... but unfortunately it will NOT... my advice- add the extra 1-2 hours....if possible! You will be glad you did! :o)

We really appreciate the way that the staff at Tivoli Terrace guided us through the wedding planning and event process. Their knowledge, patience and willingness to integrate things we thought were important resulted in a very special day for us. It couldn't have gone better. Our guests are still commenting on how unique the setting was, how well it fit our family and friendsand everyone loved the food and the cake, they were both incredible. Thanks so much Diane and Patrick!! The only drawback we experienced was that our guests had some difficulty finding parking. But I guess you should expect that when our wedding was on the first warm weekend in two months which resulted in a little extra traffic from people enjoying Laguna.

I highly recommend Tivoli Terrace for any event! Our wedding was perfection- romantic, intimate, personalized, beautiful, and FUN! The room looked stunning thanks to Patrick, Alexis, and everyone else who helped set up. Walking in and seeing everything look so beautiful and just how I had imagined it was so exciting and calming. We got so many compliments about the venue, the food, and the service. All of our guests had a wonderful time, and we cannot thank everyone at Tivoli Terrace enough!

Choosing Tivoli Terrace for our wedding was the ABSOLUTE BEST DECISION. They took care of EVERYTHING in the most professional way possible. At least half of our guests told us ours was the very best, and most fun wedding that they had ever attended, and much of that credit belongs to Tivoli Terrace.

STAFFING: The day-of coordinator (Patrick) was just the best in the business. He was so smooth, making sure everything ran right on time, but not in a way that felt rushed. He was perfect, as was everyone else I dealt with over the year it took to plan the weddiing.

FOOD: The food was seriously fantastic. We were nervous about this, as previous reviews had been less than favorable, but our food was FABULOUS. We did a sit-down dinner with options of the beef brochette or the salmon in dill butter sauce. It was so much better than we anticipated. Someone told my now-husband that the venue was working hard to repair the negative reviews from years past regarding the food and let me tell you, Tivoli Terrace has succeeded.

ALCOHOL: The wines were awesome, the champagne free-flowing, and the bar staff great.

VENDORS: We were nervous about the limited approved-vendor list, but all of the vendors we used from the list were absolutely top-notch.

I can't say enough wonderful things about my wedding. Tivoli Terrace is an EXCELLENT choice for anyone who wants a wedding where things are EASY. They make it easy, and in the end, we got such a great deal with the all-inclusive nature of the package.

TIPS: We went with a six-hour package, which is 1.5 hours longer than their standard package. We paid for the extra time, but it was well worth it, since it made everything relaxed and gave us a much longer dance party. Also- we found that the hall looked much nicer with chair linens. That was more expensive but gave the space a much more luxurious feel.

If you're considering Tivoli Terrace, do it. They're the absolute best.

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding. Tivoli Terrace and their staff (specifically Patrick and Diane) are incredible. From day one of our planning til the last dance of the night, they were there to answer any question and help in any way. It was flawless, beautiful and SO much fun. Quite simply, they're the best and if given the option I wouldn't change a single thing. Thank you Tivoli Terrace for making my day truly unforgettable.

I can't say anything but nice things about Tivoli Terrace. We love the outside atmosphere yet it feels like you are inside. The greenery and flowers are beautiful. Everyone loved the food, especially that each plate was served hot and steam was coming from the rolls. A huge hit! It was great that the cake was included and saved us from shopping at another place. All planners were helpful and were always available. LOVED PATRICK! I felt I was in good hands and the event just flowed. We didn't feel rushed. This is our second wedding here and if I can talk my other daughter out of getting married at Disneyland we will be back.

We had our wedding at Tivoli Terrace on Sunday September 2nd. The venue was beautiful, the coordinators where on point and the food was great. This is a place to go for a bride that doesn't like to make a ton of decisions and isn't an absolute control freak. For example, you have about 10-15 choices for linens, two flavors of cake and about 4 different designs for that cake. But trust me, you will not be disappointed. There selections are very classy and elegant and we were told several times that ours was the most beautiful wedding our guest had ever been too. This is a one stop shop and a great price for what is included.

Tivoli Terrace is an amazing wedding venue! I had so many guests tell me that I had the most beautiful wedding they had even seen, and that my wedding was so much fun! From the beginning, Diane was very responsive, and I felt completely confident that she knew what she was doing. Even though I had emailed the Tivoli staff so many times, they always responded promptly and professionally.

I was worried that I would have a cookie cutter wedding at Tivoli Terrace, but that was not the case at all. I brought in my own flowers, musicians, and other items to personalize my wedding, and everything was set up beautifully. On the day of the wedding, I didn't have to worry about anything! Diane was an excellent coordinator and made sure everything was on time. She always had a glass of water or champagne ready for me and even bustled my dress! Even though Tivoli Terrace does a lot of weddings, I truly felt special that day!

We took advantage of the summer special during the Festival of Arts, making our wedding so affordable! The only cons I can think of are: the bathrooms are sort of far (public restrooms), parking lot is far and costs money during the summer, and the summer special does not include a bridal suite for getting ready. The total amount of time for the wedding was only 4 hours, which can be short for some but was perfect for us since we're not dancing type people.

Overall, I had a wonderful experience working with Tivoli Terrace, and I'm looking forward to coming back next year on our anniversary to get complimentary carrot cake :)

The best decision we made during our wedding planning was choosing Tivoli Terrace for our venue!!! My new husband and are cannot stop talking about how INCREDIBLE our wedding day was due to our vendors. Guests were complimenting the beautiful venue, the attentiveness & professionalism of the staff in the same breath as telling me how happy they were for us and how pretty my dress looked. Wow!
I had read the reviews so I of course expected things to run smoothly, all my expectations were nothing compared to how blown away we all were with their attentiveness, professionalism, attention to detail, flexibility, just all around awesomeness!!
From day 1 of confidently signing that contract it's been bliss working with them. I would do it all again. There was always a friendly and knowledgeable person on the phone. They happily answered all my questions and eased all of my concerns (no matter how many times i called in one day). Not only did they help with venue questions but they were there with a detailed list of other amazing vendors that made my planning go so smoothly. Big BIG HUUUGE thanks to Diamond DJ, Pocket Full of Petals, Viral Booth, and Tasteful Cakes. All vendors recommended by Tivoli, ALL were just HANDS DOWN the easiest folks to work with, affordable, A++++++++ quality!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
I'm just gonna keep gushing. . . I can't stop!!!
Diane, oh Diane!!! You must've been in 12 places at once at the wedding, always there with a glass of champagne at the perfect moments, bustling my dress flawlessly and discreetly, fixing my hair, helping our guests, directing us amidst all the craziness, I'm sure putting out "fires" that i wasn't even aware of, all with a genuine and calming smile on your face. You're an angel! Thank you a million times thank you!!
Can we talk about the food? Oooh man! The Red Pepper Salmon, a huge, tender, savory, juicy and flavorful cut on a bed of perfectly sauteed asparagus and just the creamiest mashed potatoes. I wasn't able to stomach any food that day due to nerves, but you better believe i sank my teeth into that meal. The Chicken Wellington, a hearty portion of juicy tender chicken, perfectly cooked veggies inside of a tender flaky crust also atop asparagus and mashed potatoes. HUGE portions, not your average standard wedding food. Deeeeelicous!!
Oh!! Almost forgot! Beer, wine & champagne INCLUDED!!! YEAH! Let that sink in!
Anyone reading this, if you're looking to have a pleasing wedding planning experience, if you don't want to have to worry about more than you already are worrying about, if you want to pretty much have the wedding of your dreams, then rush over to Tivoli. Planning a wedding is stressful, do yourselves a favor and let the professionals handle it.
Happy planning everyone! :)

What can I say to express how thrilled and grateful I am with and to Tivoli Terrace! Patrick (my main coordinator) was outstandingly attentive and responsive and went above and beyond anything I could've ever expected from anyone in a site coordinator position... I've dealt with several of them at other locations and been less than pleased with how far they were willing to go to help. Patrick helped assemble my candy buffet, helped my parents set out place cards on the table, and, most remarkably, remembered every word I uttered about the wedding planning for over a year!!! The venue itself is so beautiful! I had my friends and family approaching me about it all night, from the moment I started takin post-ceremony photos all the way until we left. The cake was awesome! The food was delicious and lauded by all my guests. Tivoli Terrace and the people who work there made my wedding more gorgeous than I could've ever imagined, and I thank them whole-heartedly!!!

I had my wedding reception at Tivoli Terrace and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!! I was looking for a non hotel, non ballroom stuffy wedding venue and lo and behold...Tivoli Terrace!!!
The day was PERFECT and I have the staff at Tivoli to thank! Patrick and Diane and everyone else there who helped did such an amazing job with setting up and I didn't worry about ONE thing while I was there! From day one we were so impressed with the venue and how the owner worked with us and met us and made us feel so so special. You can't ask for a more perfect Southern California venue - the pricing is unbeatable because it included free flowing beer, wine & champagne, centerpieces (simple elegant orchid for me), cake (yummy carrot cake), linens, chairs. My guests kept telling me what a great place it was and how comfortable they were! I highly recommend Tivoli Terrace to any future brides if you are looking for a chic, outdoor, garden setting!

I cannot say anything negative about Tivoli Terrace. What a wonderful experience it was to be married at this location. Words cannot be expressed about the way Patrick, one of the wedding coordinators made my husband and I feel throughout the entire process from engagement to wedding. Tivoli Terrace is so lucky to have him working for them, and we are so lucky to have found a place like this to have been married at. The day of the wedding, I was calm, carefree, and just so happy to be marrying the man of my dreams. Patrick and his team made sure that EVERYTHING was being taken care of, and if there was a problem, I had no idea what it was. The food was amazing, the service was impeccable, and every one of my guests had an awesome time. I thought parking was going to be an issue, it wasn't. One thing I would highly recommend, have your wedding be the last one of the day, because I kept reading reviews that the weddings were too short, but I felt like mine was perfect. I think they may have let us go on a little longer because it was the last wedding of the night. We had the chicken wellington, ratatouille, and red pepper salmon, and the portions are WAY too much to eat. The food is DELICIOUS. I highly recommend going there for dinner beforehand. Anyways, I can't say enough positive things about Tivoli Terrace. I just wish I could do it again.

I had my wedding at Tivoli Terrace a few weeks ago. I was truly blown away by their sincerity and their service. After the wedding I felt like the staff were old friends of mine and it would be strange not to see them again! My husband and I are already talking about when we will go back and eat at the restaurant to see everyone. I received many compliments from people during the wedding and after about how this was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. I think a large part of that is because the setting at Tivoli Terrace is so intimate and romantic. I would highly recommend Tivoli Terrace to anyone planning a wedding in OC.

I want to shout from the rooftops that Tivoli Terrace did an absolutely incredible job, and my wedding day was everything I imagined and more! The venue was so beautiful, my guests couldn't stop commenting and neither could I. We decided to go with the included centerpieces (amazing that it's even an option), and I was so glad we did. The reception area was so romantic and elegant and each table had a huge towering orchid- gorgeous!

The food was delicious, especially the Roasted Red Pepper Salmon- yum! The portions were very generous and all of my guests were very full and very impressed. The cake was also delicious and gorgeous, and included in their package...wow!

Patrick and Diane were awesome. There are no words to adequately express my appreciation for them. They are so attentive and sincere in wanting your special day to be absolutely perfect and they truly go above and beyond- trust their judgement, it will take stress off of you and they are hands down truly pros of the industry.

I was concerned about the time constraints at the venue, as I didn't want my day or my guests to feel rushed. I must say, that Tivioli knows what they are doing. The time allotted is perfect, and when it was time to go it felt just right.

Overall, everything about Tivoli exceeded my expectation. The venue really handles so many details that made the day perfect in every way. I recommend that every engaged couple consider Tivoli Terrace for their wedding, no other venue will be able to offer what Tivoli provides, and once you see the space you will fall in love all over again. A lifetime of Thank you's to everyone at Tivoli for making my wedding day the best day of my life.

Tivoli Terrace is a beautiful ceremony and reception site, our wedding on the morning of 11/12/11 was amazing! All of our guests had a great time and both our ceremony and reception turned out beautifully. The manager Patrick and coordinator Diane both went above and beyond to find a photographer (Doug Gifford) to show up with no notice after the photographer we signed a contract with (Leslie Cunningham at Click Chicks Photography) did not show up. They really went above and beyond to make sure our day turned out great even without our photographer at the ceremony. We highly recommend this location!

My hubby and I could not have been happier with everything Tivoli and their staff did for us on our wedding day. They made my dream wedding a reality- and all within our budget. They were flexible and allowed us to do everything we wanted to do. Bobby, Patrick & Diane were such pleasure to work with. Bobby & Patrick were so funny and really put our minds at ease- especially the day of. They were beyond patient and helpful, especially with all questions and changes. I cannot say enough good things about them or their staff- they truly know what thy are doing and make it seem effortless. As someone in the hospitality business, I was picky about what I thought I should get for the $$- Tivoli met all my expectations & exceeded them. The food was amazing, not your typical wedding food (we had the beef brochette and chicken dishes & everybody raved about how tasty it was). The venue was beautiful...truly everything was perfect!

I was in awe of the service provided by Bobby, Patrick and Diane at Tivoli Terrace. Not only was the venue wonderfully elegant, but their attention to detail was unparalleled. We considered over 10 different venues around SoCal, and settled upon Tivoli Terrace because of their confidence in ensuring our wedding went exactly according to our wishes, not to mention that their prices are unbeatable and their package included more than any other location could offer. Looking back on our wedding day, I'm having trouble thinking of any aspect that was less than perfect, which speaks volumes to Tivoli's ability to thoroughly plan and execute. Their experience with weddings has finely tuned their ability to expertly host the most important day in anyone's life.

Moreover, the food and champagne were fantastic. We could not have been happier. Tivoli is a MUST for anyone looking to have a classy, memorable event while being frugal with their funds; they exceeded our expectations in every respect.

We can not reccomend Tivoli Terrace highly enough as a wedding ceremony and reception site. Every experience we had working with them exceeding our expectations. The staff was friendly and found ways to go above and beyond for us at every possible place.
The site is so beautiful and my husband and I knew that it was exactly what we were looking for as soon as we saw it. The price seemed a little higher than some other places that we looked, but when we realized that it included EVERYTHING, we actually saved a ton of money over other venues that charge extra for so many details.
Bobby was awesome and incredibly helpful and fun to work with. Patrick was so fantastic that I am still hearing compliments about him from the other people who were involved in our wedding.
We had so much overwhelmingly positive feedback about our wedding, including details we didn't even know about because Tivoli just made them happen!!
We loved it and would choose to have our wedding at Tivoli again and again!!

I loved having my wedding at Tivoli Terrace. It was the best place I could find. Believe me I looked at over 10 wedding places. I live an hour away from Laguna Beach and so do my guests. When they arrived they knew why I chose Tivoli Terrace. It was a beautiful and a well organized event. My wedding coordinator Diane was wonderful. I felt at ease dealing with her and the staff at Tivoli. People also thought I spent over $130 a person and I didn't. I spent less. It was well in my bugdet to have my dream wedding there.

Best wedding venue ever!!! First, the staff are the most amazing people you will ever meet. I had a hugeee wedding party (20 in total) and everything went off without a hitch. Bobby, Patrick, and Diana were ridiculously helpful throughout the whole planning process and answered every question I had (and trust me I had a million of them).

The actual wedding day was perfect and better than I could ever have imagined. The place looked fantastic and all of my guests had a blast. The food was so delicious as well! Even though it flew, by the timing of the whole event was great (something they reassured me of multiple times).

The day was literally stress free because they took care of everything. From the moment I arrived there was a glass of champagne in my hand : ) and it just went perfect from there.

I would recommend this venue a million times over. Thank you Tivoli for making my wedding a day I will never forget!!!!

A big shout out as well to the vendors on Tivoli's referral list:
1) Jennifer Gilmore Photography
2) Platinum Peaks Entertainment (Huey Le)
3) Vantage Point Productions (videographer)

We were married on July 24th at Tivoli Terrace and it was the perfect day! The staff at Tivoli (Patrick, Bobby and Diane) are all incredible and do anything and everything to make your day unforgettable. As soon as we walked into the venue we knew that we'd found the perfect place for our wedding and reception. We booked our date and they walked us through everything we needed to do. Their list of preferred vendors was awesome and we used several of their referrals. Every guest at our wedding commented on what a beautiful venue it was and how delicious the food was and how wonderful our wedding coordinators were (we had 2 for our wedding!). The terrace area was perfect for our wedding and reception and it had such an intimate feel and allowed us to see all of our guests while seated at our sweetheart table. The spiced carrot cake that we had for our wedding cake was awesome! We chose the salmon with dill and the chicken marsala for our dinner choices and both were amazing - we received so many compliments on how delicious everything was and when the plates were brought to the tables we could see the steam coming off of the entrees!! So yummy! We are so looking forward to having dinner there for our anniversary next year!!

My daughter's Saturday evening wedding ran so smooth and flawless...never a boring moment. Patrick was on top of everything...seemed to be right there whenever we needed him. He also bustled my daughter's dress after the ceremony and pictures! HA! The evening was perfect...wish I could do it again...Thank you all so much for the most memorable day of my life!

Tivoli Terrace is a FABULOUS venue for a garden wedding and reception. The gardens are gorgeous with multiple vignettes adding that extra touch of class. The wedding coordinators are very profession, knowledgeable and made everything run seamlessly. The food is to die for and I would not hesitate to use Tivoli Terrace for another event. I HIGHLY recommend this venue.

Tivoli Terrace is an AMAZING place to get married! Bobby and Patrick make the whole planning process and the wedding itself so easy. They walk you through all of the details and send reminders about things that needed to be done so we didn't forget. And for everything that is included in the price (cake, centerpieces, table linens, decor), it really is a great value too. Everyone at our wedding commented on how beautiful the location was and also how great the food tasted...the portions were huge too! I really have nothing bad to say about Tivoli at all and highly recommend them to everyone!

We hosted both our ceremony and reception at Tivoli Terrace, and I can't say enough good things about our experience with Tivoli! An all-inclusive wedding venue, they make the entire planning process simple and easy. The coordinators are fantastic to work both before and during the wedding, and they were a huge part of a successful and beautiful day. The venue itself is just lovely and unique with its garden setting, fresh flowers, and open air restaurant feel. Finally, the food was so great. Our wedding day not only went off without a hitch, Tivoli was a beautiful setting that we and our guests will always remember.

Our wedding in October at Tivoli Terrace was more beautiful and memorable than my husband and I could have imagined. The venue is beautifully set into the hillside and full of trees and flowers that we needed not decorate. The images speak loudly to the beauty of this space, but the real beauty of Tivoli Terrace are the staff. Bobby and Diane assisted us from the day we first visited. After visiting a few venues we were delightfully amazed at the personal attention and thought they showed us. It was very refreshing and we knew we were in good hands. We fully credit the success of our wedding on their experience and professionalism. Our wedding went without a hitch and we could not have been happier with our special day.

We had our wedding and reception at Tivoli Terrace. First off, EVERYONE there is incredible!! The venue is beautiful! They go out of their way to help you get thru everything leading up to the wedding. Wedding days can be insanely stressfull, but they take care of everything so you can truly enjoy your day! Everyone that was there commented on how wonderful the food was and how beautiful everything was! All the little mishaps that inevitably happen at a wedding we were unaware of because they took care of everything. We had extra people who didn't R.S.V.P. show up and they didn't even raise an eye. We didn't even realize they were there till have way through the reception. I even had red wine spilled on my gown, which could have been a disaster!! But the staff was so great, our coordinator grabbed club soda and saved my dress, pictures and my sanity! I highly recommend them to anyone looking! The venue is incredible, food was delicious and the staff was the best!!

We just got married here 10 days ago... this place was amazing! Out of all the weddings that I have ever attended, Tivoli was definitely the most beautiful, well organized, and flawless. The food was the best wedding food I have ever had (I highly recommend the Prime Rib and Chicken Wellington)! The crab cakes were so good, they made our shoes fall off :) They also had an espresso bar, which I did not get to enjoy, but all our guests raved about it. The service was prime, the staff was incredibly adherent to detail. Lastly, if you have a choice, I'd recommend an evening wedding. There are tiny little lights all over the place that once the sun goes down, the place lights up like a fairly tale. We were also impressed with the heating lamps... the perfect temperature was maintained. Hands down, the best venue!

The service was spot on, and normally we do not expect too much for 'wedding food' cooked for so many people, but it turned out fantastic. Many of our guests commented that it was one of the nicest weddings they had been to. It was a beautiful and perfect place to enjoy our wedding.

My husband and I simply adore Tivioli Terrace! Our wedding was amazing and we know we owe a large part to Tivoli Terrace and its great staff. We worked mainly with Diane and Bobby, and they are so kind and so helpful from the beginning to the end. My husband and I really needed structure and were not willing to shed money on hiring a separate coordinator. this is is where tivoli was great for us. They provide coordinators that helped with the wedding events. Their vendor list is also great. We initially were not going to use a lot of their recommended vendors, but ended up doing so because a lot of outside vendors did not provide great value for the service or were not professional. Note that tivioli does not receive money from their referral list, the vendors are supposed to give tivoli clients a good deal, and trust me, they do! Tivoli is amazingly beautiful - we loved the french garden style and got married during the day. the pictures came out so beautiful. They have a great menu, our guests were raving over the beef brochette and salmon! their spiced viennese carrot cake is to die for. service was prompt and Bobby and Diane were there to help with anything that day. we got married in their chapel upstairs and the reception was downstairs. The flowers come with the venue so there is no need to spend extra. the only thing is that tivoli does not reduce the price if you choose to bring your own cake or wine, etc. the free open bar was also incredible! the guests couldn't thank us enough. since we got married in march, which is considered a winter month, we were offered a great discount. tivoli is a bit hidden next to the pageant of the masters, so make sure to create a good map for your guests. if we could do it all over again, we would choose tivoli terrace again in a heartbeat.

Tivoli Terrace made my perfect reception come to life!

I am not one of those brides who had her dream wedding planned before she even met her prince. I am pretty easy going and to be perfectly honest, only ended up at Tivoli because the price was right and they had our date available.

As the wedding approached, I was a little concerned that they only did "cookie cutter" weddings because that's all they do; weddings! I was worried that my wedding wouldn't be special or be my own.

I could not have been more wrong! Even though I had visitied Tivoli several tines throughout the wedding planning process, I had never seen it decorated for a wedding. It was transformed into a magical haven of beauty and elegance. Everyone kept telling us all evening how beautiful the venue is and how much fun they were having.

And from our perspective as the couple, who didn't have a wedding coordinator, I can honestly tell you that you don't need one when you work with Tivoli. They are experts and they made our perfect wedding go off without a hitch! The staff is truly amazing. We loved them and wouldrecommend them in a heartbeat!

Tivoli Terrace is a beautiful venue that does most everything for you; you can have the ceremony and reception right there, and the food, wedding cake, wine/beer/champagne/etc., tables/chairs is included, plus you get a lovely staff who organizes everything and guides you through every step of the way. Our wedding was wonderful. I can't recommend this place highly enough. The only potential downfall is that if you want a longer time booked, go for the evening because they have a few weddings a day and you need to leave at their scheduled time. Which was fine with us, since we wanted to leave for our honeymoon!

We had our wedding at Tivoli Terrace and it was even more beautiful than what we imagined. They kept everything moving along at a great pace. Although I knew we had a limited time for our event, never did I feel rushed the day of. Upon my arrival at Tivoli, I was already super nervous but when they came to greet me, they were so calm and inviting, it helped me relax. I didn't have to worry about keeping everytihng "on schedule" during the wedding because Tivoli handled that. They kept everything moving to how we wanted and at our own pace. The staff & coordinators frequently checked up on us if we needed anything and took care of us during the whole wedding.

One of the reasons I chose Tivoli because it was intimate enough for the size of our wedding (130 ppl) and I especially loved the romantic garden theme. We had our wedding in the afternoon and while I originally wanted our wedding in the evening to take advantage of Tivoli's lighting, having it in the afternoon created a different ambiance. We were lucky to have beautiful weather that day so it created a sunny, romantic luncheon atmosphere.

The only one downside is that Tivoli does not have a food testing so you go in picking your menus blind. I went to one of their open houses to try the cake and the appetizers so that helped me get an idea of the food but would have liked to try a bit of the entrees before making the decision. Regardless, the food did turn out delicious and everybody enjoyed it!

All in all, we are so glad we picked Tivoli as our wedding venue and wish that we can one day go back as wedding guests to enjoy it all from the other prospective!

On behalf of my bride and myself we highly recommend Tivoli Terrace. After months of trying to find the right place to get married we found Tivoli in Laguna Beach. I saw my finance's eyes light up and I knew then and there we had to have it. However, after dealing with management at other wedding venues I was concerned about how we would be treated. I can say now that the treatment was fantastic. The staff (especially Patrick and Diane) were fantastic. They not only guided us through the process but assured us along the way that every thing was in good hands. They were calming and reassuring the whole way. Their list of vendors were great as well. It was a picture perfect evening and we have Tivoli to thank. Especially Patrick Walker, he is a pillar to his trade and we highly recommend him!

Tivoli Terrace was great! We appreciated their flexibility and assertiveness. We flew in from Seattle for our wedding and never even saw the venue until the day before. It is beautiful and easy for guests to get to. We loved the 'one stop shop' as it's easy to get wrapped up in food, flowers and cake details...but Tivoli handled all of that. Patrick was our main coordinator and he was awesome and very professional while still keeping things lighthearted and stress-free.

My husband and I were just married at Tivoli Terrace and we were so pleased with how everything turned out. From the very beginning, all the staff at Tivoli Terrace were very helpful and were always more than willing to address any concerns or needs we had. Keeley, Bobby, Patrick and Diane are AMAZING and we can't thank them enough for making our wedding day so memorable.

Our guests loved the atmosphere of Tivoli Terrace. Everything was so beautifully decorated. We found out as we arrived for our wedding that we had made a mistake on the table cards and actually forgot to include one of the table numbers. One of the coordinators at Tivoli actually made up a table card that resembled the cards we had designed. I mean, how cool is that?!

The food was delicious. We had salmon and chicken. Our guests are still talking about how good it was. It's rare that mass produced food tastes so good! And we went with their award winning carrot cake for our wedding cake. Delicious!!

Keeley was there to meet me at the limo when we arrived and she helped calm any fears I had. She was great!

Right before I was set to walk down the aisle I lost it and started crying because I was overcome with emotion. Bobby was standing next to me as my Dad and I were about ready to walk down the aisle and I told him to tell me a joke to get me to stop crying. And, in regular Bobby style, he obliged. I don't remember if he told me an actual joke but whatever he said was in his calm, carefree, funny nature and it did the trick. He was wonderful.

During the ceremony, Patrick was there to get me anything I needed. He was fantastic!!

My ONLY negative comment about this venue is that it was about 1 hour too short. The wedding started at 6:30 and had to end by 11:00. While Tivoli does a great job at keeping all of the events of the night on schedule, I felt like as soon as we were done tablehopping and greeting all our guests, the wedding was over. Not much extra time for us to dance or take (non-professional) pictures with guests. Our guests were not ready for the party to end either. We ended up having an after party at a local bar/restaurant.

If I could give this venue 4.5 stars I would, because of the time frame but PW does not allow half stars. I feel 4 stars is too little so I'm still giving this venue 5 stars because even though the reception was a little short, I still have guests telling me it was one of the nicest weddings they have ever been to.

Overall I give this venue an A and I'm so happy we chose Tivoli Terrace for our ceremony/reception. I would recommend this venue to any bride. It's beautiful and you really get a lot for the price.

Tivoli Terrace is a beautiful venue and the staff there are extremely professional. Our coordinator was Diane and we couldn't of asked for a better one. She was extremely personable and really made us feel at ease during our wedding. The venue provided many of the flower arrangements and the cake. So two less headaches to worry about in the planning process. The management there were so nice and patient in answering all our questions. And they were so accommodating to us during the whole planning process.

Tivoli Terrace did a fantastic job with our wedding! We couldn't ask for anything more... if you're working with a budget this venue is great!! It's all inclusive...cake, venue, chairs, flowers for the reception, linens, and fantastic coordinators!! Diane helped me throughout the entire year of planning. During my rehearsal I found out that she wouldn't be assisting on the day of our wedding and was truly saddened. To my surprise, when I walked into Tivoli on my wedding day, Diane popped up and surprised me! She went out of her way to change her schedule around so that she can be there for me. Patrick was great too! I found out a couple of my issues and went out of his way to take care of them so that I would be comfortable. He provides a lot of much needed comic relief too. Food was EXCELLENT!! They don't allow for taste testings which really wasn't reassuring... but with everyone's past reviews, I just hoped for the best! And the food turned out great!! The cake was great if you like carrot cake...they've won awards for it, so you can't go wrong. There was a different cake option... but not sure what it was. The only negative I have is the fact that there isn't another way to get up to the chapel for guests that might need more assistance. I wish it was more wheelchair/handicap friendly. But I fell in LOVE with the chapel upstairs!! It's just soo beautiful and makes for such a intimate ceremony setting. My DJ was able to wire the microphones so that guests who couldn't make it up the stairs would be able to hear the whole ceremony downstairs. It's a smaller venue, so it makes for a closer intimate setting. ADD MORE TIME ahead of time!!! It really does fly by so fast especially when you have so many things on your timeline! If we can do it all over we would have!!

We had our wedding at Tivoli Too March 8, 2013 and it was amazing! Everything turned out perfect and the staff were professional and knowledgable! The only thing I had any concerns about was the fact that they don't let you taste the food ahead of time however the food turned out incredible and tasted great! A few guests did report to me that the last table ran out of some food options however I know several people who had multiple servings and were not respectful of other guests which is probably what happened. Other than that everything was amazing and I want to get married here all over again! If you want a memorable and gorgeous (and cheaper than most other places) wedding, Tivoli Too is the best venue I have ever been to!

We had our wedding on October 6th, 2012 and the venue turned out to be amazing. The staff was extremely helpful and professional. The food turned out to be amazing, we had the beef wellington and the salmon which were cooked perfectly and everyone was happy. The carrot cake was delicious, appetizers served promptly, and wine at the bar was great. I would highly recommend Tivoli Terrace for any wedding above other places.

I got married at Tivoli Terrace in late September. Aside from the place being naturally GORGEOUS with all of the trees, flowers, and vines, they beautifully decorate the area with lights that look spectacular at night. Everyone at my wedding commented on how pretty and quaint it was. I had a fabulous time with couldn't have been happier with the scenery.

The staff truly made it all happen. They are so professional and, at the same time, extremely patient. I live in Seattle so I didn't have a lot of time to visit and/or time to make the decisions. Patrick & Bobby made it so easy for me - they would give me suggestions and I couldn't have been happier with the final results. They truly listened and I feel that they understood what it meant to plan a wedding from a far.

The ceremony was perfect - short and sweet, presided over by our friend. This left more time for everyone to talk, dance, drink. I loved the fact that as soon as we walked down from the terrace, the reception started. It made it so easy.

The only thing that was a little unfortunate was the fact that they cleared off the tables before everyone had a chance to grab their name cards. We had made these special cards out of old first day issue stamp covers and many people wanted to keep theirs. The staff who was cleaning up simply took all items from the table in one big shuffle and many of the cards were destroyed. In the end, it didn't really matter, it would have just been nice to avoid.

I loved the wedding - it couldn't have been better.

The team at Tivoli is extremely professional and so incredibly nice. My guests are still raving at how wonderful our reception was and how friendly the entire staff was. If I was to do my wedding over again...we would definitely have it at Tivoli again!!! The only thing was the timing...the time was very limited at Tivoli and the venue was not flexible at extending the time.
Otherwise, everything was perfect!!

We had originally booked Tivoli Terrece. They have an amazing package. And a pretty venue for a wedding and reception.

The only problem was that it is on the Laguna Beach Fairgrounds. I was looking for photographers and noticed cranes in the background of some photos. I asked them if there would be cranes for my wedding and they said that there would be construction going on during the time of my wedding in early June. Though I know it would be beautiful, I jut couldn't stand the though of my guests walking through a construction site to my wedding.

The price for the package cannot be beat, but you will sacrifice a little ambiance at this venue if you book in the summer months.

Tivoli Terrace responded with the following comments:

Thank you for the positive comments. It is true that in the month of June the Festival is getting ready for the Pageant of the Masters. In truth though, once you are on our property you don't really realize it as we are surrounded by trees, boungainevilla, stained glass and more. We pride ourselves on creating a nice intimate and romantic atmosphere for our guests. I am sorry that you didn't choose us but we are pleased that you still like us. Best wishes on you life together as husband and wife.

I was recently married at Tivoli Terrace this past April and cannot think of one thing that went wrong. My wedding was an absolute fairytail. The ceremony was gorgeous and the reception was a blast! The one thing to keep in mind with this venue is that because it is "all inclusive" you either take it or pay extra for your own. The center pieces they provide are colored rosed in a pretty pewter vase. They look nice, but I wanted something a little bit more so I did my own centerpieces. Everything else was all them! The tables were perfect, they even offer the option to have a overlay and an underlay- which I did. I didnt want the carrot cake they offer, so they substituted a simple white cake (still included). All I had to do was bring 3 yds of ribbon, a cake topper and a couple flower and they made me a GORGROUS cake that tasted great! I was so busy I didnt eat much, but did recieve rave reviews from guests about the food. Laguna Beach has sound restrictions so you must choose from their list of DJ's. I recommend Diamond DJ's- we were beyond happy with them. The Tivoli staff works as a team, however I had a lot of contact with Bobby and Diane, who were both wonderful.

Tivoli Terrace is a picturesque place to get married. I was just commenting to my cousin that the only "bad" place to take a picture is in the bride's room where there is some truly awful wallpaper;) Anyhow, Tivoli takes care of just about everything for you. They made my wedding day easy and fun. I didn't have to worry about what was next and if things were taken care of because it was already done for me.

Patrick Walker and the entire staff at Tivoli Terrace made our wedding reception an absolute joy, and helped us pull off an amazing party on the best day of our lives. Our evening reception at Tivoli was absolutely beautiful; the garden ambiance was perfect and provided a magical backdrop to our celebration. From the moment our wedding limo pulled up, Patrick took on the role of expert event planner and kept our reception on pace whilst giving us the space to spend the extra time when we needed to. His staff was equally attentive to our guests and their needs, and our photography/video/music staff were able to coordinate and move through the venue without a problem. Everything ran like clockwork. For those who are looking for a "total package" of venue plus coordination for either a full wedding or reception, we can't recommend Tivoli enough!

EverythIng was simply perfect of our wedding day! Diane & Nicole our wedding coordinators were fabulous! They guided us through every minute of the ceremony & reception . We didn't have to worry about a thing. The venue was perfect for our rustic chic wedding style. It is very charming. The weather was unseasonably hot and yet it was very pleasant in both the chapel and the reception facility. The food was delicious & the portions were very generous. Our guests kept asking "where did you find this great place!". I highly recommend the fresh salmon! The fresh flowers & plants that they provide were so beautiful and really eliminated our need to decorate.
It was the perfect venue if you want to keep things fairly simple & not have to worry about all the details. We just made our favors & gathered a few decorative items for the reception table & cake table.
I highly recommend Tivoli Terrace to anyone who wants an outdoor yet intimate wedding. Our photos turned out so beautiful with all the greenery & fresh flowers all around as well as the natural lighting. No flash needed. The 1pm-5pm slot was perfect for us. Our guests did not have to arrive until after 1pm, our bridal party had ample time to prep in the morning, we had just enough time to dance and enjoy the reception without it ending too late for our guests who traveled from LA county & other neighboring areas to drive home before dark and the ones who wanted to party more we continued on in Laguna Beach & stayed overnight.

My husband Pol and I worked mostly with Diane, who was wonderful. She made the whole process feel easy and was always there to answer any questions that we had. She also had a lovely personality that made us feel cared for. Patrick also helped us during our rehearsal, and was there with Diane during the actual ceremony. Patrick was also very helpful and made us feel at ease. He was also friendly and got along well with my party (as did Diane).

We had to scramble and re-plan our entire wedding three months before our big day because our first venue closed it's doors two weeks before our wedding. I contacted Tivoli Terrace and was able to schedule an appointment the next day. Everybody, especially Bobby, were super understanding and very considerate to our needs. While they did not have our date available, we were able to schedule our wedding for the following day.

Every aspect of planning was so easy with the staff. Our coordinator who helped us with our details meeting also was our coordinator the day of our wedding. Everything went off without a hitch (I mean, my biggest disaster the day of was a chipped nail!). Our guests raved about the food and the wedding cake they provide is delicious.

You can't beat the value--the price per person includes the venue, the food, the cake, the centerpieces, and hosted beer, wine and champagne. The price also includes a live pianist for the ceremony (you're not allowed to have recorded music for the ceremony).

My only issue with the venue is their time constraint. We had under 100 guests and our entire time allotted was four hours. The first hour is when guests arrive and the ceremony. After dinner, planned dances and pictures, I think we only got to dance for about 40-45 minutes. It felt very short for our big day. We could have extended the time of the reception, but a half-hour was $500, which was out of our budget.

Other than that, everything was great and I could not recommend this venue and the staff highly enough!

Loved Tivoli Terrace. Got married during summer art festival and that just added so much to the environment of the wedding. Bobby was great, made everyone feel relaxed and at ease. Diane was a great planner, but a little less personable (made the horrible mistake of asking if my husband's mom was his grandma!). All in all, it was a great, simple experience.

I absolutely LOVED this venue!! It is such a beautiful site - exactly what my husband and I wanted for our wedding. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. They are extremely efficient, making sure my wedding ran as smoothly as possible. They decorated beautifully and were able to execute the vision I had for my wedding perfectly! They were quick to respond anytime I had a question during the planning process (which was often!) Since the venue also functions as a restaurant, they provide the cake and the food as well, which saved me the hassle of finding both a caterer and a baker.

The only qualm I have with the venue is the limit on the time. I wish the ceremony-reception time could be extended at least an hour in order to provide more time for photos. I felt extremely rushed after the ceremony to get photos done, and I know there are a handful of pictures that I wanted that I did not have time to get. The more time I took for photos, the less time we had to celebrate during the reception. There was even a point when I thought we would not have time to get everything done. My one suggesstion is to make each ceremony-reception time at least an hour longer in the future. That way people do not feel like they are being rushed.

Tivoli was a dream for our small intimate wedding. Diane and Bobby are the best. I saw 10 venues and no other coodinators love their job like these two. They are genuine and doing what they love to do. Although I felt my event time was short, everything ran smoothly. We could of used a little more time. I didnt really get to enjoy my food that was fantastic. But overall the guest loved everything and comment how beautiful everything was. This venue has a certain charm and unique decorative pieces that you just dont find anymore. I had a few hiccups but it didnt kill my joy. A few tips that may be helpful for future brides.

Chair covers- Not sure if Tivoli has a coat check or ask if you can provide one. Guests will put their coats behind the chair and it covers your beautiful chair covers. Luckily, I had some really nice pictures before the guest sat down that came out great.

Flower package- Make sure you know what your getting. Although it is wonderful to have this included in your package. I was disapointed with the quality of the flowers. Also, if you have a color theme the color package can change from one day to the next.

Shot Out Wipes-Perfect for stains on your dress.

Awesome job Tivoli Terrace. Patrick is amazing and fun but professional, a perfect mix. I think my only complaint is the table setting looks very outdated and you can't alter theirs at all so I decided to do my own table decorations but that is my only complaint and reason for low stars on the flexibility.

BRIDE'S REVIEW
If you’re the kind of bride/couple that wants to keep things simple and sweet planning-wise, go with Tivoli Terrace. Once we booked Tivoli as our wedding venue, it took 70% of the wedding planning stress off! They are pros. Weddings are what they do and they have it down to a science!

As an all-inclusive venue, they include all of the food (passed hors d’oeuvres & sit down meal), full staff of servers, table & chair set-up, linens, cake, musician for the ceremony, center piece flowers on the guest tables, unlimited beer, wine and champagne, and TWO day-of wedding coordinators—all at a very reasonable price per guest. We could literally be guests at our own wedding :)

Tivoli Terrace can accommodate up to 80 guests in their upper Terrace (we ended up having 67 adults and 5 children/infants), which was a perfect size for us. If you’re looking for a larger wedding, they have a sister venue called Tivoli-Too just across the street. There is an extra $200 fee to change from the ceremony seating to the tables for the reception which originally we weren’t told about when we signed the papers. The coordinator responded respectfully and the manager waived it for us because of the miscommunication. The pre-paid parking option isn’t worth it, but other than that, all else was totally worth the money!

We got so many compliments on how beautiful everything was, how smoothly it all flowed, and that it was the best food many of our guests had ever had at a wedding. We even had a few people asking for seconds on the wedding cake! (We recommend the Viennese spiced carrot cake, which is Tivoli’s specialty, and is absolutely amazing…). Diane was our main day-of coordinator and she did a wonderful job making sure we and our guests were well-taken care of.

In short, our wedding day was magical! Thank you Tivoli Terrace!......................

GROOM'S REVIEW
Beautiful, wonderful, amazing! Our wedding was more than we ever thought we could afford! Tivoli Terrace is a wonderful location. We were looking for a day-time wedding to save costs, and it just so happens our wedding date fell during the Festival of the Arts, which means the prices were even more reduced! So, not only did we get an amazing venue, but our guests were also able to walk around the Art Festival.... Since when does a bonus mean a price reduction?

The venue: Beautiful. The food: Amazing. 2 Day-of Coordinators: Included.

They take care of everything. I was told by a minister after we booked Tivoli Terrace, "I have been to several weddings there. You have NOTHING to worry about," and it was true. Everything went off without a hitch.

One thing - If you book during the Festival of the Arts, you have the option of reserving and pre-paying for parking spaces at the lot across the street. DO NOT DO THIS. You will pay the same amount as somebody parking the whole day, but if your reserved parkers leave after 2:30, they will be charged another $10. It doesn't make any sense to us either. Nobody who didn't have reserved parking had an issue. That early in the morning, there were plenty of spaces. And, it turns out that when we left after 2:30, the lot was so busy, nobody asked us to pay again...

Anyway, Tivoli Terrace does a beautiful job and makes everything so easy. And if you book during the Festival, the prices are unbeatable! Highly, highly recommend....

We LOVED LOVED LOVED our February 2010 wedding at Tivoli Terrace!! It was as close to perfect as you can get. As with all venues there are pluses and minuses, but there were way more pluses at Tivoli!!

Things we LOVED: Bobby - aaahhhmazing coordinator (as were most of the other staff members!), quick response via email and phone calls, gorgeous setting, DOCs know what they are doing and make the day run so smoothly, cozy and not stuffy feel, the tables are set up beautifully, yummmy yummy carrot wedding cake (and looks great too!!), pretty ceremony site, and everything is pretty much done for you - we just picked the food and the linens. AND the food is PHENOMENAL - we got ssoo many compliments on the food - it was better than the food we had tasted at their open house. The salad is also plated beautifully and tasted great too! The champagne iss ome of the best I've eever had. And did I mention that the site is just gorgeous!!?

Cons - parking is across the street, the stairs up to the ceremony site are a bit hard for the older follks to navigate, their time limits are very restrictive and I felt overpriced to pay for more time, they do not have a standard seating chart so you sort of have to create your own and hope that they can make it a reality (which they did for me!), one staff member was a little rude (and took smoke breaks during our wedding - yuck!). I wish that they had a place for the bride to get ready (if no other weddings are scheduled) and that they allowed a little more time for each wedding time period - especially during the slower winter months.

I was also really impressed with how much they helped me out - I literally did nothing on my wedding day! It was great. They even packed my car with all the gifts and helped to clean up and gather all the extra stuff that I brought.

I can not thank Tivoli enough for making our wedding day perfect and the planning process as painless as possible!!! I would get married here again in a second!!!
