36 Shutters on the Beach Reviews
Married on 08/12/2016
BALLROOM ON THE BEACH! Dream Come True! My then-fiancé and I were getting desperate to find a reasonable yet classy venue near a beach in LA area. It had been months of researching venues online, ... Read more scheduling walkthroughs, and then coming home disappointed and looking for more leads. Finally one night, I gave my now-husband my ideal venue description (thinking it would never happen anyway): I told him I had always dreamed of getting married with a perfect ocean view as the sun goes down (obviously without random beach-goers in the viewable background or god forbid walking through our wedding with their dogs, volleyballs or frisbees, because most beaches are public and they can do all that freely) AND I wanted a terrace overlooking the ocean AND a ballroom all in the same venue. If this is your dream too, look no further!!! Shutters is simply the best. I know a lot of reviewers say that because they remember their wedding fondly, but we HUNTED for this venue and we knocked down a lot of similar venues along the way. For the price, location, service, and the amazing catering, you will get no better! The catering was exquisite, the service was attentive and friendly (not stuck-up at all). There were no ridiculous hidden charges like so many other venues bill after the wedding. THEY LET ME DECORATE MY OWN WEDDING!! For those who don't know, most upscale venues will make a fuss about hiring vendors for EVERYTHING. Shutters understands that not every couple wants fresh flowers or rented decor. Being the picky bride that I am, I custom-made all my own elaborate and fragile centerpieces and decor and the Shutters staff happily set it all up with a little written direction! AMAZING!!! The cherry on top: They pampered us by leaving chilled Champagne, sweets, and other goodies in the bridal suite when we retreated after the reception. And the night was on them. Bliss! GET MARRIED AT SHUTTERS! And tell Bruce and Kristie Sam and Rachel Schaffel say "hi!"

We did both our ceremony and reception at Shutters and it was perfect! We wanted to do our wedding at the beach, and Shutters provided the perfect backdrop. Liz and her team are so easy to work with ... Read more and very accommodating! From the initial meeting, to the walk throughs to the tasting to the big day and so much more, they made all of our guests feel welcome. I have always loved Shutters and now it holds a special place in my husband and my hearts and we know it is a place we can always visit to reminisce about the best day of our life! The team at Shutters is genuine and kind and work with you to make sure your dream day comes true, and they did just that. The event spaces are exceptionally beautiful and they worked efficiently with our vendors to transform the spaces into the perfect wedding backdrops. Thank you Shutters team!
