Where is Westlake Village?
Westlake Village is a city in California that is part of Los Angeles County and bordered by Ventura County. Located less than 40 miles away from downtown Los Angeles, Westlake Village is easily accessible but still “off the beaten path” compared to other wedding venues. Four Seasons Hotel – the crown jewel of Westlake Village – is situated at the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains, flanked by the beaches of Malibu and Santa Barbara wine country.
Westlake Village Wedding Venues
When searching for Westlake Village wedding venues, many couples are surprised to discover Four Seasons Hotel in the area. Couples outside of Los Angeles may not even be familiar with the city itself; but knowledgeable wedding experts will always point them in the right direction.
“I think the Four Seasons Westlake Village is a bit of an undiscovered secret,” says Los Angeles wedding planner, Kristin Banta of Kristin Banta Events. “Most don’t realize this property is located in Westlake Village, or that Westlake Village has a luxury property available. It’s off the beaten path, but that’s what makes it special.”
Being outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown Los Angeles also makes it easier for the hotel to host large weddings. Buyouts are conveniently available so couples can provide out of town guests with comfortable and stylish lodgings. Of all the wedding venues in Westlake Village, Four Seasons has become the go-to property for couples looking for a luxe wedding destination that can also accommodate a substantial room block.
Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village Weddings
When it comes to Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village weddings, couples and designers will find it easy to bring a variety of décor schemes to life. The ambiance is quite traditional and pays homage to the quintessential Four Seasons aesthetic, but the property still offers a fresh, nouveau spin. Planners will especially love coordinating each portion of the wedding weekend because the hotel enables them to play with countless event spaces.
“I think what is most distinctive is the fact that there are so many spaces available to host so many wedding experiences without having to reuse the same space,” Kristin explains. “There are very few properties that really allow that.”
Some of the main venues within Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village include the Chinese Pagoda and Waterfall Lawn, which are often used for outdoor wedding ceremonies; the terrace, for a beautiful cocktail hour; and the massive Grand Ballroom that stands at 11,600 square-feet and has a guest capacity of 996. Not only are there multiple event spaces for couples to host their welcome parties, rehearsal dinners, ceremonies, cocktail hours, receptions, afterparties, and farewell brunches – the spaces are also a blank canvas for designers to create the most lavish wedding designs.
“Studio A is literally a perfect box for afterparties and a ground-to-ceiling transformation,” adds Kristin. “They also have an incredibly transformative ballroom and a high-touch team that is incredibly accommodating to allow a producer to come into the space and make use of it in a transformative way.”
A Luxury Wedding Experience with Customizable Wedding Menus
The true luxury wedding experience revolves around customization and bespoke details. Couples should feel as if their special day was a unique and authentic representation of who they are. Regardless of where in the world a wedding takes place, food is always one of the most important aspects of the wedding day – not to mention the most impactful way of sharing a couple’s story with their guests. This is where the Four Seasons Westlake Village truly shines, as their customizable wedding menus are second to none.
“My approach to working with any client is taking a deep look at things that are reflective of their experiences and translating that into a story that embodies all senses,” Kristin shares. “Food and beverage are a critical part of that storytelling. Without having a curated menu that is bespoke to the client, I think we are missing a big part of the storytelling. At Four Seasons Westlake Village, their ability to customize the food and beverage is unmatched.”
