My financee and I are looking for a venue that can do both ceremony and reception on the site in November.
We are looking at about 110-130 people and want to avoid the hotel/banquet room route.
We would love a place that has:
Romantic, cozy atmosphere
Good location (ideally Westside - Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, WeHo, can go as far as Pasadena & South Bay if the venue is good).
We thought a restaurant wedding would be ideal but open to other ideas too.
Some places that we are looking into are:
Il Cielo (love the atmosphere but will it fit 130 comfortably?)
Chateau Marmont (I didn't know they did weddings but a friend said he just went to one that was really special)
Any suggestions from fellow chowhounds would be greatly appreciated! THANKS!!
