"It was important for us that every part of our wedding celebration reflect our values and communities–from our caterers, flowers, and venue–the Velaslavasay Panorama. We couldn’t have asked for a more ideal setting to celebrate, and were thrilled to share one of our favorite places with our friends and family. The ceremony was in the theater, and drinks, dinner, and dancing were outdoors. We didn’t have to do much to decorate, since the theater and garden are so spectacular on their own. The garden is magic, especially at night, and the back parking lot was transformed into a lush dining area that comfortably accommodated a seated dinner for over 100 guests. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, and many of our guests have even informed us that this was one of the most special, personal weddings they have attended. (We certainly agree!) Thanks, Panorama!"

"We had our dream wedding at the Velaslavasay Panorama! It is a truly unique and beautiful venue. The ceremony was on stage in the theater, cocktails were in the garden, and dinner and dancing took place in the back lot. The Panorama staff was extremely helpful leading up to the event and on our wedding day. Overall it was an unforgettable celebration with our family and friends!"

"The Velaslavasay Panorama was a perfect venue for our wedding. The staff went above and beyond to help us make the event memorable. We had over 100 people, including artist friends and mid-west relatives, and everyone felt welcomed and comfortable. The location was easy for guests to get to from downtown hotels, the theater seating allowed everyone to have a great view of the ceremony, and the outdoor garden provided a lush backdrop for eating, dancing, and conversation. Every year, my wife and I still get comments from relatives saying it was the most fun they've ever had at a wedding. I couldn't recommend it more highly."

"The Velaslavasay Theater was a fantastic place to host my mother's 60th birthday party. We hired a magician who performed on the central stage and the ample seating allowed everyone to have a great view of the magic. Afterwards, we ate cake and danced in the beautifully landscaped back garden. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone who wants a truly unique experience, in a wonderful LA theater with great charm and history."
