Excellent, beautiful, and good-value venue. They were very accommodating to our special requests (like sourcing particular beers, for example), responsive, and good at working with our whole family. We appreciated having their excellent caterer, tables/chairs and other set-up crew all in house-- made planning our wedding just a little bit simpler. We also feel aligned with the Skirball Cultural Center's mission to promote understanding and tolerance for Jewish life in America and to support the principles of American democracy. We had such a wonderful time at our wedding and would absolutely and wholeheartedly recommend the Skirball!

16 reviews 5.0 star rating 7/11/2017 We had our wedding at the Skirball Cultural Center for 210 people over Memorial Day Weekend this year and it was a total success. Biggest thanks to Darrel De Vera for being so accommodating, professional, and helpful during the planning process. We chose to have our ceremony at the Taper Courtyard, cocktail hour at the Guerin Pavilion, and reception in the Ahmanson Ballroom with the beautiful ceiling. We've only seen previews of our wedding pictures but anticipate that they will turn out beautifully - the venue is so picturesque! The Skirball does not allow outside catering (except for the cake) but that was not at all an issue because the food at the Skirball is fantastic -- our guests LOVED the tuna tartare in sesame cones and lamb chops for our hors d'oeuvres, and the beef short rib entree was so tender. The house white and red wine were actually really good as well! During the wedding the table service was fantastic; our guests were all very pleased. Only constructive criticism I would have is that because there was a bar mitzvah happening the same night, they required the bartenders to card our guests... so one of my bridesmaids was carded at least 3 times (by the same bartender!) before we put our foot down and insisted that he stop asking for her ID.

I couldn't be happier that I got married here. It's a classically beautiful LA venue and all our guests from the east coast were blown away by how amazing it was too. Susie was a fantastic coordinator to work with and made sure everything was exactly the way we wanted it and we didn't need to worry on the wedding day. The food is great too! Since everything is included there, you get a lot for your money. It was perfect for our LA/NYC Jewish wedding.
