Hi Hounds --
I am newly engaged, and while we are tying the knot on Kauai,
we are also planning an L.A. reception.
We won't have all the flowers, etc., in L.A. -- we just want excellent food and ambience.
I've been in L.A. for just three years, so I could use your collective experience.
Stats: on the west side
Size: not sure yet, but probably between 100-150 easy.
My future inlaws have a LOT of family and a LOT of friends!
My future sister-in-law's wedding was 450 people.
That's why we're having a destination wedding - to keep it intimate.
Back here in L.A., though, we're going to let the parents invite anyone they want!
Let me know what hotel dining/spaces might be ideal, as well as restaurants we might reserve for the night.
I'm toying with A.O.C., if they could handle that amount of people.
We love good food -- we don't want rubber chicken on a plate!
Thanks in advance for all your recommendations.
