We were married at this beautiful venue in May of 2008. We loved it the moment we saw it as it is nestled in the Santa Monica Hills, secluded from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. I like to think that we found a true gem here. We partially worked with Roxy Adlesh, but then switched in the beginning of 2008 to Meredith who presently the primary contact person for this venue. Meredith was great to work with. She was efficient with responding to your inquiries, easy to work with, and helped out as much as she could on the day of the wedding. That is a huge plus as most people at venue's don't always do that. The food was good as we chose to serve our guests via Russian style which is basically a family type of serving style. The entree's came out on modern white dishes that gave your wedding a sorta modern flair. The only gripe I have about the place is that you aren't allowed to have any amplified speakers during the cocktail hour as the residents that live around the venue are strict about the noise. I really wanted a guitarist to perform during our outside dinner reception, but was unable to get on due to the amplified speaker reason. In the end, it worked out as we used a string quartet throughout our ceremony and dinner reception and the guests seemed to appreciate it. On the upside, it's a very affordable venue that comes with a beautiful site! What more can you ask for?

Margie and her string quartet are awesome! I primarily communicated with Marg the entire time throughout my wedding planning process. She was a sweetheart to work with and one of my favorite vendors as well! They all come well dressed in appropriate attire and on time, no less! They also try and accommodate to your song needs. I was ecstatic to hear that they were able to play one of the " Cal" songs at the end of our ceremony as me and my husband walked back down the aisle. It was such a great surprise for our guests to also attended Cal. I would highly recommend this quartet for any events. They are very affordable when compared with alot of the other string quartet vendors and I believe they outbeat them in a heartbeat!
