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.

I had the most wonderful wedding here on 3/13/16. I had a lot of chinese guest that did not like american food. But, the food was so delicious that they could not stop going back to the buffet line. Our guest thought the venue was absolutely breath taking and it was the perfect venue for our perfect wedding. Our Skirball Venue coordinator, Susie Remo was a gem. It made working with Skirball, so easy and delightful and made our dream wedding come true.

Hands down, there is no better place to have a wedding in LA than at the Skirball. The setting and scenery are beautiful, it has a museum-like quality surrounded by the Santa Monica mountains. There are few places where the guests can enjoy four different settings (cocktail reception, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception) all at the same address. Our guests could not stop raving about the venue. Also - a GREAT place for photos - our photographers were drooling over all of the great photo opportunities. The food was fantastic. We worked with Darrel who was always available, extremely helpful, and helped us put together a magical evening. Also, the price cannot be beat for all that you get at this place. I cannot say enough about the Skirball - our night was absolutely perfect.

The skirball was absolutely amazing! We seriously could not have imagined a more perfect wedding at any other location. The staff was absolutely perfect, the catering and food was delicious. Our guests were blown away at how beautiful the entire space was from our outside ceremony in taper courtyard, to the great cocktail hour outside the ahmanson ballroom, and the breathtaking reception in the ahmanson ballroom. Big thanks to our site coordinator Darrel DeVera who took care of us! Very accommodating, and helpful. They are they to help make any vision come to life and it was picture perfect! -Very happy Mr. & Mrs.

We chose the Skirball Center as our wedding venue, and could not have been more happy with every last detail. We worked with Lainy, who from the time we first met with her (a year and a half before the wedding date!) until the day of was so sweet. She took care of everything, checked in with me about every detail, and was very easy to work with. The venue itself was GORGEOUS. From the Taper Courtyard where the ceremony was held, to the Ahmanson Ballroom where we had the reception, people could not stop commenting about how elegant and grand the venue was. It was everything I could have wanted for my wedding (and I know tit is gong to photograph beautifully for our pictures!!)

We LOVED having our wedding at the Skirball Cultural Center. It was a perfect venue for us. We didn't want to have our wedding at a church or a hotel. We wanted something more simple and modern. So if that's what you are looking for, contact them! Everyone raved about how beautiful the venue was and how great the food tasted. I worked with Darrel and he was so extremely helpful throughout the whole wedding planning process. I knew I had nothing to worry about. He always responded to my emails quickly (even on weekends and while on vacation). Who does that??? That's how great he is! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding. Thank you, Darrel! You rock!

I could not be happier that I chose the Skirball Cultural Center for my wedding! It proved to be the ultimate venue from the beautiful grounds, amazing food & drink and impeccable service that we received from Elisa and every single Skirball employee. The modern, clean grounds serve as a blank canvas for brides to create their ultimate dream wedding! One of the most important things in the whole wedding process, was the quality of the food we served - I wanted to make sure that our wedding guests enjoyed a delicious, quality meal - And boy, did they ever!!! From the tuna tartar, to the lamb shank to the fish and short ribs - all guests raved about the food!!! Elisa was our point of contact throughout the wedding planning process and she was completely amazing!!! She was always there to address questions and concerns, and did so in the most warm, positive and friendly manner. She had so many great ideas, and made sure that whatever spontaneous planning idea I had came to life! She is a truly wonderful person to work with!!!

All 5 stars are fully deserved. The venue was obviously beautiful but it was Elisa K. who really brought us in and gave us the comfort and trust that we needed, especially after we had left another venue because we had become frustrated with their service. Elisa really brought things together, and she understood the vision for our wedding even when our wedding planner didn't. Thank you -- the wedding was better than we ever could have imagined.

I had a great experience dealing with our events coordinator Darrel De Vera. He was very honest, prompt, and educated. He gave us all the answers and did not beat around the bush like some vendors so. The food choices were awesome, the communication was great, and the whole experience was memorable. When you are getting married, the last thing you want to think of is a planning hick up. I highly recommend the skirball cultural center for any type of wedding. The architectural designs are beautiful and there are no neighbors so you can be as loud as you want! We had the venue until 12 am.

I loved the Skirball Center!! It was a perfect venue for our wedding! My husband and I knew this would be the place the second we walked onto the property. At first I was concerned about in house catering, BUT the night was did our food tasting I was blown away - its all delicious! The waiters and bar tenders were great the night of our wedding and made sure everyone was taken care of! They even went out of their way to find my pregnant friend a bottle of Martinelli's so she could be part of the champagne toast! Our guests had a great time and so did we!
