  • My husband and I had our wedding here on February 28th and it could not have been more perfect. We toured here back in June of 2019 with Ilsie and Zenobia. Ilsie showed us around the entire venue, let us know about all of the amenities, and broke down all of the pricing for us. The venue is absolutely breathtaking and pictures do not do it justice! There were no hidden fees, ridiculous charges, etc. It was all pretty straightforward and definitely within our budget! Not to mention both Ilsie and Zenobia worked with us so that we wouldn't go over our budget but we still got everything we wanted! Throughout the entire process, Zenobia kept in touch with us and answered about 500,000 questions that we had along the way. She was extremely patient, kind and understanding and we are both so thankful for that since planning a wedding can be (definitely is) such a stressful process. Fast forward to a month before the wedding when Ilsie took over and helped us with all the final details! Ilsie ... Read more

  • My husband and I really wanted to be married somewhere with trees and nature, but local to where we are in LA. We thought it would be impossible, until we found The 1909! The ambiance of the place is just gorgeous, you can almost feel the love and romance in the air. We had Ilsie as our day of coordinator, and she was so sweet and truly did put her whole heart into making our wedding day spectacular. She was incredibly flexible, patient, and kind, which we very much appreciated. You also have the entire wedding venue to yourself for the day of the wedding, which is really wonderful to just be fully immersed in your own wedding. Our guests really loved it. The 1909 was also very handicap-accessible for a few of our older relatives who had trouble with stairs. One thing I wish I would have known earlier, you cannot store anything there the day before or after the wedding, so make sure that you plan for that (we ended up just storing everything in the hotel, which worked out just fine).

  • If you are looking for both outdoor/indoor venue, this is the perfect place to get married. This is a hidden gem :) the management was great, very prompt with responding to questions. The on-site supervisor was really helpful and great to work with.

  • Oh my goodness, how have I NOT reviewed our amazing wedding venue yet? We were married at the beautiful 1909 on October 12, 2018! I could not imagine a better venue for our special day. I’ve driven past this place a million times, yet never knew what it was (I assumed it was someone’s gorgeous house), I never would have known it would someday be my dreamy wedding venue! Immediately, Zenobia was extremely responsive, answering every question my husband and I had, as well as my parents questions. She let us tour the property as many times as we wanted so we were sure we loved the space. Amir, the owner, was very attentive the day of our wedding, making sure everything ran smoothly and we all (including staff) had a terrific time. Their professionalism and friendliness is unmatched! The venue itself is gorgeous! When you book The 1909, you have the entire property to yourself from 11:00am - 11:00pm, although you are allowed to arrive to the venue early (we got there at 9:00am)... Read more

  • The 1909 is a beautiful outdoor woodsy venue just like we had envisioned. They were easy to work with and able to meet our budget needs. They also provide catering from their restaurant The Topanga Table. We were worried about the event taking place at different levels of the property, but it flowed beautifully. All in all the food was delicious, the service was seamless, and the venue is breathtaking. Thank you to The 1909 for the wonderful memories!

  • Amazing Venue, and amazing people to work with. We loved that their view on weddings, isn't about the day, its about the marriage! Amazing value for what you get with this venue team. They truly made our special day, a day better than what we could ever imagine!

  • Scott and I LOVED The 1909! The outdoor plus indoor combo was great for a January wedding. It had a beautiful layout. Hardly any decorations needed. Communication between my venue contacts and I was easy, either through text or email. You can visit as often as you wish, just tell them what time you'll be there. And during your wedding, the venue is yours the whole day! The best parts about The 1909 was that it was affordable (within our budget, which was the most important) and that you were allowed to bring in your own vendors. So if you're a creative, do-it-all, enjoy planning kind of bride, this is your venue! (Unless you hire a wedding planner.) You can play around with ideas and they will do their best to accommodate. Also, we were very blessed that it did not rain on our wedding! We were able to utilize all parts of the venue.

  • My husband and I got married here on March 11, 2016.....and it poured much of the day. Leading up to the wedding, we saw the weather was looking pretty iffy, so we had to create about 4 weather plans - finally deciding on one the MORNING of our wedding. Amir and William bent over backwards to ensure the day was spectacular despite our bad luck in weather. In the end - it was more spectacular than I could have imagined. For cocktail hour (we had ours start the event off as we waited for rain to subside) guests were ushered to the first floor area which extended to a large balcony covered by a clear awning they installed to allow our guests to experience the outdoor charm of the venue while it rained. When rain cleared we managed to have the ceremony outside, and it was SPECTACULAR. The trees and landscape are truly breathtaking. We enjoyed dinner and dancing upstairs, where we could fit 115 guests quite comfortably. All we did was swap out their string lights for cafe lights........The ... Read more

  • This venue was magical and perfect for the small wedding we had. The staff could not have been more accommodating, and the food was delicious. We had nothing but rain for months leading up to the wedding day which turned out to be 76 degrees and beautiful. It was so lush , green and beautiful. I would highly recommend 1909!

  • We got married at the 1909 on April 9, 2016. It was awesome!! We met Amir at the food tasting in August of 2015. He was just starting to offer his catering (Seven Dreams Catering) as a vendor choice. Our guests raved about the food and how it didn't taste like "wedding food". Definitely try his food and menu! We had 100 guests. One week before the wedding there was a chance of scattered showers in the forecast . My tip to you is to have a tent in your budget. We got a clear tent from Town and Country and Amir and William did everything to ensure the day would go smoothly...and it did. We had the ceremony out under the huge trees and had dinner on the grassy area with the tent showcasing the beautiful landscape. The Topanga Creek runs through the property so you will hear frogs , grasshoppers, and other little critters in the evening. I highly suggest the PIZZA HEARTH OVEN for appetizers. It was beyond spectacular. We cut the cake and danced all night upstairs. The 1909 is a hidden... Read more

  • The 1909 was the perfect venue for our DIY outdoor SoCal wedding! Everyone of our guests complimented the beautiful venue. The owner and staff were beyond accommodating. Though sometimes it took a little persistence on our end to get answers. It always seemed worth the wait. We loved that this venue allowed us to have the entire venue all day. Just remember music turns off at 11. They have many rustic elements that are included in their rustic package. I like to describe this venue as a little gem placed in the middle of the canyon. We had 120 guests and the most beautiful ceremony. After, we headed to the meadow. we opted to use regular tables and linens. The food was fantastic! We did family style. Everyone loved the food. Before heading upstairs to dance, we did our first dance in amphitheater where we were married. It was beautiful and unexpected. We ended the night upstairs and had the best time ever! I would say the only cons I would address would be the sound in the amphitheater... Read more

  • The 1909 is a beautiful and unique venue. We got married back in October and booked them more than a year in advance. We worked with both William and Amir, who were both helpful and flexible with any requests we had. The day of went smoothly and they had accommodated us on almost everything they said they would. My only complaint about this venue was the lack of communication between the staff and us. It wasn't terrible, we would just book a service or something with one of them and then come to find out it was never booked because of either poor communication or disorganization, I'm guessing. For our rehearsal, for example, we booked with Amir and when we showed up, he was occupying the hall for what looked like a booking with another couple. They ended up leaving, but it was confusing and awkward for us and them, too. Everything worked out for the wedding day, but things like that just cause more stress for the couple and that's the last thing we needed. Also we were assured... Read more

  • This is a beautiful venue. We got so many compliments from our guests. You get the whole property for the day, and you are free to bring in any other vendors, no set caterers you have to use. They are very flexible, but communication is slow. We were scrambling the night before and the morning of to finalize details that we had been working on for weeks. Overall though we are very happy we found this place and we have recommended it to others.
