From the moment my now-husband and I met the team at LBMA, we knew that it was the wedding venue for us! The location is gorgeous (a view of the ocean was a non-negotiable), and it is much more affordable than many venues on the coast in the LA area. The Special Events team are rockstars, especially Sara, and they made us feel as though we were a part of the LBMA family before we even signed our contract! Sara was there for us for nearly a year (and patiently answered all of my random and very detailed questions) - and on the day of, she and her team made everything run smoothly. They were so accommodating with all of our requests and ideas - and seemed to have fun helping us plan both our ceremony and reception. The venue offers lots of perks and was able to accommodate all the ideas we had (setting up our personal decorations throughout the venue, using sparklers, pet-friendly, taking photos at different points throughout the day - in the museum, at the ceremony site, on the beach) and - most importantly - the team made sure that we were well-fed in the midst of all the activity! Speaking of the food, by Claire's at the museum, many of our guests said it was the best wedding food they have ever had. We loved everything we tried at our tasting (narrowing it down to a menu was the hard part!) and the staff made sure we had a little bit of everything throughout the day. The signature cocktails were delicious, and the beer/wine selection appeals to all tastes. Lastly, they have a rental company they work with for all your table/chair/linen/place setting needs and it was great to not have to worry about coordinating that on our own.

Our day was exactly what we had hoped for and more - largely in part to the LBMA. Our photos are gorgeous, our guests had a great time, and we were able to "customize" the wedding to fit our personalities (which is not always possible at a more "standard" venue). I want to do it all over again! Thank you LBMA! Love, Meredith and Doug
