Lakewood Wedding Venue
3101 Carson Street
Lakewood, California 90712
Lakewood Country Club is both a delightful and convenient venue for gathering family and friends. Though mere minutes from a major airport, the club is tucked away on a quiet residential street, surrounded by 11 verdant acres of golf greens. Originally built in 1930 when golf was still very much an elite sport, the club now welcomes the public. Though hints remain throughout the property of its gracious past, Lakewood has been completely updated to accommodate the contemporary bride.
Lakewood’s historic Spanish-style clubhouse adjoins a sprawling garden lawn lavished with foliage. Outdoor ceremonies are lovely on this manicured expanse, with flowering borders and trees providing natural adornment. A gazebo, archway, columns or whatever décor you choose can be added to set the stage for your walk down the aisle. You’ll make your entrance from the spacious bridal suite on the second floor of the clubhouse where you’ve prepared in comfort and style. When you hear your musical cue, descend an exterior wrought-iron and stone staircase to the garden below.
Following the ceremony, you’ll be whisked away to pose for photos amid the beautiful lakes and greenery. Meanwhile, guests are welcomed inside a Saltillo-tiled foyer for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. This vintage-influenced interior courtyard leads to three separate, and quite different, room options for your reception.
Host an impressive gala in the spacious Grand Ballroom, where up to 300 of your nearest and dearest can celebrate beneath ornate brass chandeliers. Tall windows overlook the golf course, and the view of the lush fairways is like an artfully rendered landscape painting. At one end of the ballroom, a built-in dance floor fronts a raised stage, whose velvet curtains are pulled back to spotlight your evening’s entertainment. More modest affairs are held in the Hacienda Room, a wonderfully airy and light-filled space, thanks to a cathedral ceiling and open beams. For something cozier, the marvelously intimate Fireside Room retains many details of the original building, including a decorative hearth decked with flickering candles for a romantic glow. The angular lines of an interior roof, complete with eaves and Spanish tiles, add to the Fireside Room’s nostalgic atmosphere. Each of the banquet spaces also opens to an outdoor patio, where guests take in the treelined golf greens and the rose-scented breeze.
With its pastoral setting, attention to detail, and competitively priced wedding packages, the Lakewood Country Club deftly answers the needs of 21st-century brides.
