this website is a great resource for SoCal brides:


i’ve used it several times!

a few places we looked at:

~Redondo Beach Public Library Building

~Disney Hall

~Marriott Manhattan Beach

~Renaissance Hotel Long Beach

~Queen Mary (Long beach)

all these are southwest of Glendale, but if you’re open to having it outside of Glendale, you may find something more roomy and for less…

Castle Green is gorgeous!!! It has been in many films, including many parts of Bobby. I loved it, and it was very reasonably priced. Parts of it are a bit run down, but I think it only added to the charm. I nearly booked it for my own wedding.

our SoCal wedding is Feb 2009 – we booked the marriott in long beach for a combination of reasons: it was close to the airport for oot guests, close to the church, the price was right, it wasnt already booked when we were shopping around, and it was available the same day the church was available…

we specifically wanted a hotel reception to minimize guests driving home intoxicated b/c we’re having an open bar… that was a huge deal for us – to have people be able to stay the night w/o driving home if they consumed too much…

it’s nothing "fancy" like the renaissance hotel in long beach or swanky like hotel roosevelt, and definitely not as pricey as trump golf course in PV and we figured,  hey – it’s only the reception and we ddint think it was gonna be a huge deal WHERE as opposed to spending time with family and friends…

we looked at brookside country club – their manager is great and easy to talk to. 

i thought the place was nice, but it might be tight for the number of people you want to invite.  their packages will be kinda similar to the la canada club.  it was quiet that day, as they were setting up for an event later that night, and i really liked the view it had of the golf course (although it’ll be dark by the time your event starts…)

ultimately we didn’t like the idea of having a reception in pasadena and we passed.  also their minimum was on the high side considering our budget, but you should meet it easily with your number of guests.

have you looked into the castaway restaurant?  it’s located in burbank.  i had my ceremony and reception there….the price is decent and the food was pretty good.  They have banquet rooms of all different sizes, and I’m pretty sure they can accomodate the party of your size.

we looked at the renaissance hotel in long beach as a possible reception place.  the caterering manager, christy, was super nice.  they had two possible ballrooms to choose from: 1) standard ballroom and 2) newly rennovated tuscany style ballroom, which i thought was beautiful.  you should make an appt. just to see it.  good luck.
