  • We fell in love with our venue as soon as we saw it. We wanted to stay near the LB area, but wanted a classy, indoor (since we had a January wedding) ceremony and reception location. Jeremy and the TGIS Staff were wonderful and extremely helpful throughout the wedding planning process. During the entire wedding day, the staff was present, made the set-up a breeze, and attentive to the guest and the bridal party needs (we didn't even have to ask!). I was thrilled to see they packed my husband and I "to-go" meals since we didn't eat much at the actual reception. I discovered throughout the planning process that having one vendor for location, food, linens, cake, chairs, etc. was much easier than needing to contact a long list full of vendors. I highly recommend TGIS and the Betty Reckas Cultural Center.

  • The Betty reckas cultural center is such a beautiful place! We didn't want to use a hotel facility so we opted for a more elegant and personal reception hall which was the Betty reckas!

  • I encourage anyone to check this place out! The venue was gorgeous. Everyone is still raving about our wedding. TGIS is the exclusive caterer and will be reviewed separately. The venue site is in a lot with a Greek church and the adjoining gym. It had a whole parking lot dedicated to those using the venue (we didn't see anyone using the church or gym the day of). The place had a gorgeous bar and foyer, high ceilings, great wainscoting and a gorgeous fireplace and piano. Also a little bridal room for us to keep our personal items. I had initially wanted an outdoor wedding and was never a ballroom-type gal, but boy am I glad we found this...

  • The venue is absolutely gorgeous. You can have an outdoor ceremony, like I did, but I've seen beautiful pictures of indoor ceremonies as well. The reception building, which includes the bar, foyer, and ballroom are beautiful and elegant. I feel in love. The price definitely is a great value, but just note that when you book this venue you must use TGIS at the caterer. We enjoyed working with our event manager, Jeremy. We let him know what we wanted and he did his best for us. He was also very available via email to respond to questions. The catering was delicious! We highly recommend the wedge salad. My husband doesn't particularly care for salads and usually let me take the lead in decision making, but he was pretty adamant about making sure we had that salad. The filet mignon and provencial chicken options were good as well. My husband's grandmother said it was the best steak she'd ever had. They're also open to your thoughts on food and different styles, flavors, etc. The TGIS s... Read more

  • We worked with Jeremy from TGIS who was great. The venue has a lot of character and is clean and neat, adding lounge furniture makes it cozy. Love how the bar is outside the reception room. We had 135 guests and there was plenty of extra space to move around. Our only complaint about the venue itself was the bathrooms really need a facelift.

  • Picked because it fit in our budget - great value because you can bring your own alcohol - and it turned out great. Newly remodeled with beautiful fireplace, and chocolate brown walls. Has nice lobby and outside patio availabel for cocktail hour. The catering is provided by TGIS in Long Beach and the food was great!!! Several comments from guest that it was one of the best wedding meals they had. The wait staff and barteners were friendly and the event manager was on hand all evening.
