  • The Wilshire truly made our wedding day. If you are thinking about them for your own, stop reading this and book them now - you WILL NOT regret it! First, the staff are incredible. You and your partner will be supported from start to finish. We never felt so special as we did when we were being taken care of by their team. From the moment we emailed with John, the Catering Director, shortly after our engagement we knew we were in good hands. He answered all of our (many) questions promptly and positively, and helped steer us in the best direction regarding everything from the cocktail hour to the after-party. We know the venue hosts events all the time, but John makes you feel as if you are his only client and he's there just for you. Kirby, our maitre 'd was THE BEST. Upbeat, super friendly, and engaged in even the smallest details of our day. And Angela, our bridal attendant was awesome! So friendly and helpful - she just took excellent care of us. She even stood outside with me in t... Read more

  • My husband and I knew from the moment we walked into the Wilshire that this was a place with class and elegance, which is what we were looking for in a wedding venue. It also had a hotel attached and space for an after-party, which were all great perks! We worked with Joe’l Falco throughout the entire planning process. In short, Joe’l was amazing. She never said no. She accommodated every request and truly helped our vision come to life. She was responsive, professional, and not to mention, a lot of fun! The wedding day was perfect. We began in the morning in the bridal suite on the lower level of the Wilshire. Having all the girls getting ready in the same room on site made the day seamless. We did not have to worry about transporting people or things from our getting ready location to the venue, because we were already there. The bridal attendant showed up with champagne, wine, and soft drinks. She organized the room with all of the things that the bridal party and I had brough... Read more

  • Besides being an absolutely beautiful venue, the staff at the Wilshire is top notch. There was not enough the staff could do for us. Leading up to the wedding we worked with John who was very professional and fun! He never made me feel like I had to do something a certain way and that it was my vision and he would do anything he could to make that come to life. This included some special requests that resulted in him having to make a lot of phone calls but ultimately pulling through to have everything come together exactly the way we envisioned. The day of the wedding the staff was on their game and whenever my husband or I needed something they were there (a few times with what we wanted before we even asked!) I cannot say enough amazing things about this venue and staff and I would very highly recommend this venue to everyone !!

  • My organization, Missionaries On The Move, had an event at the Wilshire on May 11th and the service was impeccable! Joe’l and Kriby made the event even more special with their hard work and kind ways. They were there every step of the way to ensure the event was a success and took place without any hiccups. This is our 3rd annual fundraiser gala at the Wilshire and every year it’s always been a great experience. Thank you for employing such great people and I look forward to working with Joe’l and Kirby in the future. Great place to have your special event!

  • Getting married at the Wilshire was one of the best decisions we made concerning our wedding. We set our date about 16 months in advance and worked with Joe’l on the planning—all the questions and tastings and etc. Joe’l was always quick to respond and set my mind at ease when I worried about something I didn’t need to. On the day of, Kirby kept everything running smoothly as our maitr’d and Angela kept my dress clean (and bustled!), bouquet handy, and me hydrated as my bridal attendant on our hot July wedding day. The grounds and interiors are beautiful, the food was amazing, and our guests had a great experience and LOVED the cocktail hour with all its options and stations. Our package included a cake from Palermo’s, so that was one less thing to worry about! We also had our rehearsal/welcome dinner the night before at Primavera in the same building, and we were glad guests could stay at the hotel the night after (or before) and didn’t have to worry about transportation...

The ambiance was amzaing, the food and drinks was wonderful and the staff was available all night to take care of the bride and groom with whatever we needed. Definitely comes highly recommended.

  • I have completely run out of adjectives to describe our wedding day on 4/26... it was incredible! We met with the Wilshire 2 years ago as our first venue appointment, fell in love and booked the next day! Joe'l was an angel throughout the entire process (not to mention rapid email responder, therapist to calm my nerves, hair stylist, etc. etc). We are still getting calls from our guests to comment on the food, decor, experience, service - you name it. My bridal attendant, Sam, was the sweetest and most thoughtful person who genuinely cared about her job and made sure I was comfortable the whole day. The entire team was so happy and positive, our day was just magical! My husband, our entire family and myself are so grateful to the Wilshire for providing us the wedding of our dreams!!!!

    THANK YOU so much for your INCREDIBLE review Jenna!!!! It was our absolute pleasure serving you and Joe'l and Sam had a blast working with you throughout the entire process! They are both the greatest and we're so happy to hear you enjoyed working with them! We wish you both a beautiful life together filled with only the BEST and please visit us any time for drinks and dinner on us at our restaurant!

  • I don’t know what else to say but this was the best choice we made. When deciding our venue we were stuck between 3 options. One of which was the palace in Somerset. I am so grateful we went with this option. The staff knew what I needed before I knew what I needed! The whole team was extraordinary. Joe’l worked with us for the price to make sure we could have our dream come true and that’s exactly what it was. The guest from the wedding are still talking about how good the food was. I was so grateful when they sent us home with some. I can’t reccommend this place enough.

  • We had our wedding recently at The Wilshire and it truly is a beautiful location to host your event. The food and drinks were excellent and there was an abundance of it!! We've received a lot of positive feedback on the venue. Our Bridal Attendant, Angela and Wedding Coordinator, Joe'l were excellent!! They were incredibly attentive to our needs. The only issue we had was with our tents. Due to COVID 19 we had to have our wedding outdoors. The tents that were added to the garden area were small, which was not what we expected. Though the staff at the Wilshire was just as upset with the tents, they went to work and turned a not so good situation into a memorable event. Overall, the Wilshire is a beautiful venue to host your events and the staff is wonderful to work with.

  • It was a good experience, they were very knowledgeable about the new trends pertaining to weddings. The day of the wedding, they made sure things were on point. We couldn't mess it up because guided us and made sure we were lined up correctly and on time. When one segment ended, the next segment was set up and ready to go. They were very professional
