Wedding Venue Client Reviews

  • "My name is Irene Tatevosyan and I recently organized an event, for the graduating class at USC Law, that was held at MountainGate on Friday, April 18th. I am writing to you because I would like to give my highest regards to your Director of Events (Jazmin), Assistant Director of Events (Anna), Director of Food and Beverages (Ryan), and the entire staff that worked the event that night. From the beginning, Jazmin and Anna did tremendous work helping us plan an event that met our budget but, at the same time, was spectacular. At the event, Ryan made sure all my questions were answered, and made sure everything was as it was supposed to be. I am truly impressed with your management and staff. I had guests approaching me the entire night letting me know how beautiful and successful the event was. It is, to this date, the best Gala USC Law has held and it was made possible by MountainGate. Again, I cannot say enough what a wonderful events team you have. I will be recommending this venue to everyone I know, and from the praise I heard from the 215 guests at the event, they will be doing the same."

  • "Our wedding was absolutely amazing, everyone loved Mountaingate & said it was so unique to be able to have a reception that had both an inside and outside area. I researched over a 100 venues online and was surprised to find that most are either all inside or all outside, having both was on our top 10 things that a venue had to have. Mountaingate was phenomenal & such a pleasure to work and they were always on top of everything. Everyone was VERY impressed with & could tell that the Sales team took there job very seriously. We received comments from our parents and guests that said it was the most beautiful, fun and well organized wedding they had ever been to."
    Absolutely Amazing
