6 Allied Arts Guild Reviews

We wanted an artsy, old fashioned venue with outdoors options. The Allied Arts Guild was perfect, and a great somewhat hidden location. We went back together for lunch last month. It brought back the ... Read more back the memories. The only pick we had was the early curfew, but we knew that going in. Overall, very satisfied with how the wedding was handled.

An older venue, but we wanted it to be cozy with our smaller guest list. Cute/quaint! Read more An older venue, but we wanted it to be cozy with our smaller guest list. Cute/quaint!

The Allied Arts Guild is a hidden gem nestled in a historic residential community: an au naturale setting, historic Spanish colonial architecture, lush gardens laden with surprises, and an accessible ... Read more location for out-of-town guests. AAG was bit pricier than the average wedding venues in the South Bay, but we knew the moment we stepped foot that it was what we were looking for. The natural setting also helped to cut down costs on florals and other periphery decorations, which helped us to stay within our overall budget. Portions of the venue proceeds will also go to benefit the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, so I felt our money went to a worthy cause overall. The event sales coordinator, Tiana, is excellent at her job, and is on the ball with general correspondence and follow-up. She is quite busy juggling all forms of on-site events, but is very level-headed and available when needed. She responds to most email/phone queries within a day or so, and is much more accessible/available in person. She also has a lot of sway in keeping order within her realm and making sure all vendors do their bidding, which was really a godsend when we had a catering glitch during our reception. Her experience makes her an excellent asset to have on your side. The onsite restaurant, the Blue Garden Cafe, is independently operated by JW Catering, but does a phenomenal job with food and service. Otherwise, AAG has some quirks given its residential location (ie. no outside vocal amplification, no brass bands, wedding ends at 9pm and all guests must leave premises by 9:30pm, etc) but none of this detracts from its intrinsic beauty. Our guests raved about the venue, and I know I will be going back again to stroll the gardens along with a Saturday brunch.
