“Really can’t say enough great things about The Vineyards- specifically James, Soroor, Brittany and the rest of the staff. We needed to plan the wedding just 5 months out, from our overseas location, requiring coordination as well as recommendations of vendors we could work with to save time and money- James & Soroor win on all accounts. Where do we begin- start with the venue- there’s so much there already that you don’t need much in the way of flowers if you get married in the gazebo garden (and yet their recommendation of EVa Weisman as our florist was spot on). The cocktail hour room and reception area are so well decorated, lit and lovely already that you’ll find little else needed. The outside areas are a welcome retreat and at night light up magically. Free parking- no valets needed. All of our guests remarked at how wonderful the venue is- a hidden gem in NW Los Angeles that most had never heard of, but would happily return to again- and the food went beyond their expectations in quality and quantity. J&S worked with us from start to finish budget-wise- and never once did we feel pressured or nickeled and dimed- quite the opposite- the value you receive for what you pay went beyond our expectations. They recommended a great DJ firm-11H. They helped us with Portos Bakery and stepped in with a lovely cupcake tier when Portos failed to tell us they don’t have one. The actual coordination we got before and on the day from Soroor (and Brittany) which is included is a huge bonus. And here’s the thing- while they have weddings there constantly- never once did we feel like we were just a number. The warmth and family atmosphere they exude are what make us say- wow this was the perfect place for us to get married. You always imagine something might go wrong, some area won’t deliver, amidst all the decisions you end up having to make about how to get married- something might leave you feeling less than satisfied…not once- and indeed that’s a rare experience.”

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for making our day the Happiest day of our lives…
We are forever thankful…
With warmest regards,

We had our ceremony and reception at The Vineyards and it was amazing. The site is beautiful and the space is large enough for people to not feel crowded but small enough so that it still feels intimate (we had 165 guests). Everything was well organized and the staff were all very accommodating; you are a guest at your own wedding- it was great. Soroor constantly checked on us to make sure we had enough to eat and drink at all times and was there, no matter what we needed. Our family and friends all had a blast and enjoyed the venue and staff as well.
We went with the Sunday package so all our vendors were pre-selected and they were all great. All the vendors are used to working together so it makes it a lot easier because they know Soroor and Jimmy, as well as the venue.
Before your wedding date, there is a tasting and all the brides and grooms are invited, so it is as if you are attending a real wedding. We really enjoyed this because you start to envision how your wedding is going to be and it was a really nice thing to do during the planning process.
Brides- the room upstairs where you will get dressed is huge and it is so nice because you and your bridal party are going to need a lot of room. The room was nice and cool when we walked in and there are bathrooms up there too. We all enjoyed champagne while getting ready and then the wedding began.
A BIG thank you to all the staff at The Vineyards, especially Soroor and Daria, for making our wedding the most perfect day ever. We had the best time!!!!
This is a wonderful venue that is the best “bang for the buck” you will find. If you sign up for their “Sunday Package” you will receive an even greater value. You will pay one price per person (less for children) and that includes the venue, catering, cocktail hour, dj, photographer, florist and cake. I only had two months to plan our wedding and I never would have pulled it off without the help of Soroor and Jimmy Campbell. They are the heart and soul of this place. It’s truly a family affair. Their mom and kids work their too and the rest of their staff is beyond compare. And they are flexible. Basically anything I thought of, Soroor would make it work and she really believes the bride is always right. My circumstance was a bit unconventional because I had my daughter there with me on my big day as well as 26 other children, but we hired a few babysitters and Soroor set up a whole room especially for the kids. It all worked out perfectly and the adults as well as the kids all had a great time. I would highly recommend having your wedding or other special event at the Vineyards. You will not be sorry.
Jimmy and Soroor are amazing. The venue is breathtaking and does not require a ton of decor as it stands on its own so beautifully. They were willing to get creative and work with our budget to make our wedding dreams a reality. I have recommended them to numerous friends and clients already. They clearly know how to throw an amazing party and I truly had the time of my life at my own wedding because of them!!!!
MY CINDERELLA WEDDING AT THE VINEYARDS
When my new husband, Mark (then my fiancé) started discussing plans of a wedding a year ago, and we started researching on the wedding details that had to be taken care of, I was very overwhelmed. Just the thought of going through every detail possible to put it together made me very nervous & doubtful about pulling it off. Mark decided to go to the Marriot hotel in downtown L.A. & told me that’s going to be our wedding venue. Later, he introduced me to one of their sales agents but I did not exactly feel right about the place. It was a bit impersonal & very business like. Then one day, we decided to drop by a bridal expo as part of our research & saw Jimmy Campbell at one of the booths, & on the TV. monitor by his table I saw pictures of the vineyards. The pictures of the garden with a WATERFALL background was breathe taking & immediately, I knew that’s where I want to get married. I called Jimmy and introduced myself again, in case he didn’t remember me at the bridal expo, & asked him if I can see the place. He was very warm & friendly & was very accommodating. Somehow, I convinced my fiancé to hold off on the Marriott hotel & to please give me a chance to check out the Vineyards first. Finally, at The Vineyards, we were first met by the bubbly Monique, one of their coordinators, then Jimmy, then his wife Soroor. What a friendly lot! They treated us like friends & had put no pressure on anything at all. A year later, I got the WEDDING i have dreamed of since I was a little girl and I owe all these to Jimmy, Soroor, Monique, and the whole vineyards gang…from these three, down to the chefs, waiters, food servers, I met all my vendors (photographers, videographer, DJ, florist, cake , even my wedding dress) through them & they were all very professional & operated pretty much like the vineyards (warm & friendly) On my wedding day, I had never been treated like a princess. They made sure me and mark were comfortable. I didn’t even have to worry about anything that day, everyone was just there to help, from fixing my cupcake wed cake, arranging the souvenirs, providing extra venue for the bridesmaids’ make up..etc. They made sure our guests were happy too. Soroor hardly ever left my side that day. It was a worry free wedding day & all I had to think of is looking pretty for my future husband. Everything was ORGANIZED! The special part these people played on my wedding day made it the way every wedding should be MEMORABLE & UNFORGETTABLE. Something that Mark & i will cherish for the rest of our lives! Thank you VINEYARDS!

I booked my wedding date a year ahead of schedule, and for the entire year Soroor and Jimmy have been nothing short of accommodating and helpful. Every time we went to visit, we were treated like family, and not like clients. From the beginning Soroor worked with me on my budget, my ideas, and my random requests, all with a smile on her face. She went out of her way to get me tablecloths I wanted in a different color, and made sure I was fed and happy every time I walked through the door.
On the day of the wedding a few things went wrong, however Soroor fixed it like the pro she is, and I would have never known the difference.
I can’t even begin to describe my gratitude and thanks to this amazing couple. My wedding was the most perfect day, and it was mostly thanks to them. Their level of kindness, professionalism, and overall family feel is more than I could have ever imagined, and it’s what’s going to make me visit them every chance I get!
Thank you again to Soroor and Jimmy. I love you guys!
