    The food and good music was Over the Top, but the welcoming atmosphere at the Wilshire Grand Hotel and the Outstanding service of their team really put the icing on the cake. A special "thank you" to TRAVIS who was a pleasure to work with, calmed our wedding jitters, and guided us through every detail. Need I say, all our guests left happy and smiling. Here are some of our guests' comments: * Just wanted to let you know what a Magical time we had last night at the wedding reception. It truly was a Celebration of Love. We loved the people, food, music, dancing and overall atmosphere. Thank You ! * This was one of the Best weddings I have been to. * What a wonderful wedding celebration for Dan and Jen. The food was delicious and the staff was very attentive. The venue was a beautiful setting for the event. We were glad to be part of their happy ever after. * What a Fantastic party you threw. You all did a wonderful job and everyone had a Great time. I am still emotionally high from the wedding.

    The staff at Wilshire Grand Hotel was amazing! Each person treated my husband, our families, and me like royalty. Anything we needed, they took care of. They were extremely helpful and professional with everything. The staff, the food, and the grounds were perfect! I would recommend them to anyone!

    Outstanding Atmosphere, Food, Service

    From the moment my husband and I walked into the Wilshire Grand Hotel to consider it as our wedding venue, we were impressed. John Bowes took us through each moment of what to expect at our reception. He delivered in every aspect! The atmosphere, food, and service were outstanding. Our guests were so impressed with our cocktail hour and the reception. We received a plethora of compliments from our guests on how they were treated and how much fun they had. My husband and I are both teachers and we paid for this wedding ourselves. You cannot beat what they offer for the prices and the options they have. I cannot say enough about this place. I wish I could be a guest at a wedding there. There is no doubt if you have your wedding at the Wilshire that you will be beyond pleased.

    Still Receiving Compliments!

    With very little energy and effort, the staff at The Wilshire Grand Hotel made it look easy to execute our wishes that day, and we could not have asked for a better place to start our journey. I recommend The Wilshire Grand Hotel for any event, especially your wedding, as it has been almost one month after our wedding and we are still receiving compliments for the event of the year!”

    Classy Venue, The Kindest Staff

    We had a wonderful wedding at The Wilshire Grand Hotel. The entire staff was so responsive and attentive. Throughout the planning process, Travis always responded quickly to any questions I had. He is just simply awesome! I am sad I will not see or talk to him on a weekly basis. Everyone kept telling me weeks after how beautiful our wedding was and apparently the food was phenomenal! I did not get much of a chance to eat because I was the bride. Wilshire Grand is a classy venue with the kindest staff.

    Exceeded My Expectations

    The Wilshire Grand Hotel exceeded my expectations, and even more importantly, made my dreams come true. The professionalism and expertise of the staff let my husband and I revel in the love and enjoyment of our wedding day.

    "An Exceptional Job"

    Where do I begin as the parents of the bride? This wedding took place last Friday. I had both weddings for my two daughters at this venue. I loved my first daughter's wedding and we came back again for my second daughter. The wedding was classy and beautiful, and the food is exceptional. I cannot thank John Bowes and his staff enough for putting up with all our questions and putting things where we wanted them and accommodating all our needs. My daughter and her husband were so happy that day. It was a true fairy tale wedding! Thank you again for another exceptional job!!!! I just wish i was invited to someones wedding at the Wilshire so I could sit back and relax. Of course you are so nervous that day that you forget to eat because you are greeting your guests and talking but I did eat my whole dinner and it was delicious. People cannot stop texting and commenting on what a great wedding this was. I will miss planning and I will miss you all at the Wilshire, especially John! Oh and Connie the florist there is unbelievable!!!

    "Greatest Day of Our Lives"

    5 5 1
    Portuguese/Italian Wedding. ... We got married June 3 2017. I cant believe its been almost a year from the GREATEST day of our lives. We were married on premises and it was the best and smartest choice we could have made. The entire staff, but more importantly Joe'l and Angela, are the stars of this great venue. They made every one of dreams come true. Let me start with the food, being a Portuguese/Italian family that was our number 1 concern. Rest assured the food is PHENOMENAL and PLENTY. Second, the decor was amazing. We lucked out with a fantastic day for an outside wedding, but they assured us that if we had rain they would take care of things for us indoors. The staff is truly amazing, I can't say it enough. Third, Joe'l is the greatest person you can work with. Every request we had, big or small, she said yes to. I still can't believe some of the things we got to do/have at our wedding. Angela was our bridal attendant, she is on the same greatness path as Joe'l. She helped us have a fantastic wedding. We had a huge candy bar table (HUGE!!!) and she set it up for us. Angela and Joe'l made us feel so special and taken care of. Book the Wilshire Grand and you will not be disappointed. Our families loved it as much as we loved it. We still hear about our wedding from our friends and families to this day and we still talk about it all the time. We will always have the wonderful memories of our special day at the Wilshire Grand. To Joe'l, Angela and the rest of the staff... Thank You, Francesco & Michelle
