Seven Degrees, Laguna Beach, CAReviewed on 10/28/2013 Linda N
My husband and I wed in August 10, 2013 and we are very pleased that we chose such a wonderful venue and reception. Everything was just memorable! From the upstairs ceremony at sunset to the beautifully decorated reception area. All of our guests was amazed with the Chef and his staff for producing such an wonderful menu for us and our guests. They were also very accommodating to our guests' requests and allergies/intolerances. This venue is a one stop shop. And that's fantastic since we only had 3-4 months to tie the knot! And all the vendors we chose from their list was very professional and passionate about what they do. I love our photographer, Nicole Caldwell. She is such a wonderful person! Our wedding planner, Keviann, was organized and really helped move the wedding along smoothly. From arriving guests to ceremony time to hors d'eouvres and cocktail time to introductions to dinner time, cake time, taco bar time, etc.etc.etc. I highly recommend Seven Degrees to anyone who loves being in the canyon, local art, and simply wants a stress-free wedding! Continued success to Seven Degrees!
A PERFECT Wedding!Reviewed on 6/17/2013 Megan T
I cannot begin to say how happy I was with seven-degrees. Keviann was my coordinator and she thought of everything, and made sure that there was not a thing missed. The decor is beautiful, the food was PHENOMENAL (not like normal wedding food-the sea bass is to die for). The planning part was easy, and the night of the wedding went without a hitch. Even if there was one, no one knew. Someone broke a glass, I turned around, and when I turned back around it was completely cleaned up-they were on top of everything! Very friendly staff as well and everyone was very helpful. You can't get this type of service without a price, though, and seven-degrees was definitely a bit more pricey in comparison. In my opinion to make my night perfect- it was worth every penny. I would recommend anyone throwing an event to pay that little extra!! Thank you Keviann, and the entire staff!
Seven-Degrees - A personalized ceremony/reception venueReviewed on 6/16/2013 Samantha T
To say that this venue is amazing is a understatement. I had my wedding and reception here in October and everything from the initial meeting to the final send off was perfect -- and I mean perfect. There were no glitches, no delays, no headaches, no worry -- and if there were I didn't know about it. Keviann, my wedding coordinator with 7 degrees was outstanding. She was a true professional, she got my dream wedding vision and made it come true. The venue itself was state of the art, from lighting to sound. My wedding ceremony was held on the upstairs terrace overlooking the canyon on one side and the zen garden on the other with a lovely fountain. They quickly rearranged the wedding ceremony location into a trendy cocktail lounge for before dinner cocktails and delicious tray passed hors d'oeuvres while my husband and I were wisked away for photos. The reception sit down dinner was downstairs in the media lounge which they transformed into an elegent dinner venue. I cannot say enough about the food. During our prewedding tasting I couldn't believe how delicious the food was and guests, 7 months later, are still raving that they have never had better food at a wedding or any social event. Their bar service was quick and top shelf. The wait staff were not only efficient but extremely friendly and accommodating. The entire staff of 7 degrees from start to finish couldn't have been better. They worked with all my vendors to take away any additional stress that I or my family would have encountered during the planning and execution. I could continue with this review for ever and go into every detail but I'll sum it up with just a few words. If you are having any doubts about 7 degrees, DON'T. They are first class and will make your vision a reality. I can't thank Keviann enough, she is a rock star!
The service that we received from the [seven-degrees] team was 1st class. They made the wedding planning process extremely easy for us from the beginning to end. The venue itself was beautiful for our wedding ceremony and the reception. We had the ceremony on the rooftop and the ceremony inside. The weather was perfect and the setting was amazing for a 6pm start. We had about 130 guests at our wedding and they all have been raving about the setting, the food, the venue. Also, I believe we were their first same-sex marriage ceremony. Which made this extremely special for us. We wanted to be at a venue that was obviously gay-friendly and that would make us and our guests feel extremely comfortable. The staff during the process and the day of our wedding made us feel at home. I would recommend this team and venue to anyone! Thank you [seven-degrees] for an amazing experience!
The Seven Degrees team was absolutely the best! Kathryn was always there for the whole process when ever I needed her. The day of production team was awesome! Everyone was nice and brought everything together.
Where do I start? First, the winter decor at Seven Degrees is gorgeous! We had birch trees along the perimeter of the reception, hanging chandeliers and this beautiful chandelier laced entrance that just took my breath away! When I first walked into the reception room, I knew this was where I wanted to get married. The day of the wedding, the ceremony area looked beautiful, with the round lanterns and blush lighting and the reception room looked amazing--with the purple and blue uplighting and the winter decor! Everyone commented about how beautiful the space was and my husband and I both agree that the venue was just perfect for us! Now, on to Lauren--our out-of-this-world wedding coordinator! We met with her a few times to finalize all the details and she was really nice and easy to work with. The day of the wedding, she executed everything perfectly! It was so flawless I was not stressed for one second of the wedding day! The entire thing went off without a hitch and I know that it was because of Lauren's hard work! She is wonderful to work with and I can only hope that every bride gets a coordinator who is as organized and sweet!
Cayla, Kathryn and the Seven Degrees team are AMAZING!! Words cannot describe how thankful I am for all their help and dedication. They made this entire process seamless and smooth. Everything was absolutely perfect! The wedding ceremony and reception were absolutely spectacular and more than we could have hoped for. The food was amazing! Even the vendors commented on their meals, that it was the best they every had. The service was outstanding! Several guests told us it was the most beautiful and fun wedding they had attended. Thank you for our dream wedding! I highly recommend this venue!
Outstanding service. Good food. Guests still talking about the wedding months later.
We were so happy we chose 7 Degrees as our wedding venue! The coordinators were so friendly and helpful during the whole planning process. The venue is beautiful and we were able to make it our own with decor and lighting!! Highly recommended!!! Thank you 7 Degrees!!
We had our wedding reception here in April. We live in Northern CA, and despite having to plan from a distance, the staff at 7 Degrees made the entire process streamlined and easy. We managed to plan with the coordinators with just a few conference calls and 2 site visits. We appreciated that they were willing to work with our budget. The one negative that sticks out in my mind was the $500 cost for menu tasting. I would expect this to be part of any wedding venue package. We opted not to do the tasting given the cost and relied on recommendations of coordinators instead. The food turned out fine the day of our wedding but we would have preferred to be able to do a tasting without being charged for it. The venue itself is modern with lots of great technical features (sound system, lighting, flat screen TVs on walls). On the day of our wedding, the coordinators made sure the timeline was followed and transitions were seamless. All in all, it was an unforgettable day for us. Thank you 7 Degrees!
I had my wedding here this past September, and to be quite honest, it was more than I could have imagined. My husband and I originally planned to have our wedding in November, but decided last minute to have it moved up. Seven-degrees was awesome about it! They worked with us on every single detail! From the moment we first went on a tour of the venue, to our departure on our wedding day, everything was perfect! The entire staff of Seven-Degrees was amazing. Professional, courteous, honest and trustworthy. I have to say that working with Katie in the beginning, to Cayla and Alyssa was such a wonderful experience. Our day of coordinator was Lauren. Terrific. Honestly, she handled everything! She was so genuine and sweet, that when it came to the day of, she felt like a good friend. Bravo to Seven-Degrees. You made one of the most important days of my life perfect!!!
A Dream Come TrueReviewed on 10/20/2014 Diane N
[seven-degrees] was amazing! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding venue. Right when we got there for our first meeting we knew it was meant to be! The staff was always so nice and helpful yet so professional at the same time. They made us feel welcomed and that our wedding was actually important. The venue is great and convenient because it came with everything in house! Venue, food, flowers, lighting, and a wedding planner. We were so lucky to get Andi as our wedding coordinator. She was seriously the best thing that ever happened to us. She made everything I dreamed of come true. From every single detail to the T. It's like she read my mind! Andi was so cooperative and helpful. She was always there to help answer questions and give advice. She seriously made our wedding day flawless and easy! I was able to enjoy the day without worries because she took care of everything. If I could relive my wedding day, I definitely would because it was magically perfect at [seven-degrees].
Wonderful. Just wonderful.Reviewed on 6/27/2014 Vanessa R
Let me start by saying that I was planning two weddings for our families. One in Laguna Beach for my side and one in Long Branch NJ near to were my husband grew up. This is not an easy task for someone who hadn't never planned an event for more than 30 people. Needless to say I had a lot on my plate. Seven-Degrees took the vision for our wedding and blew it up! Everything was above and beyond. Seriously, above and beyond. I actually cried ( joyful tears) when I saw the reception space. I thought I had a pretty wedding and party coming, but they gave me the party of my dreams. The lighting, the food, the artwork, it was perfect. I was planning from the east coast so our phone conversations and only two in person meetings were what we had to work with. AND THEY NAILED IT! There were a few glitches, what wedding doesn't have them, and every step of the way Andi Gordon, was there. She not only answered my families questions over and over and over again (probably the same three questions) she smoothed out any chance of disappointment for me. Played buffer to our awful DJ (it happens) , she ran her butt off making sure my husband and I had a wonderful time and we did. Alyssa (I might have misspelled her name) did an amazing job on the flowers, they were stunning and more than I could have asked for. Everyone from the bartenders, the servers, to the clean up crew were so nice and accommodating they made our day that much more special. There were many more people involved and I may not remember their names, but THANK YOU. Thank you for going above and beyond to make our CA wedding so beautiful and memorable. I cant wait to see our pictures! I believe a truly wonderful crew starts with the person at the helm. Dora, you have an amazing crew and a stunning venue! Thank you so much for everything. xo

Our Dream WeddingReviewed on 3/19/2013 Brianna J
When we were looking at venues for our wedding, Seven Degrees really stood out to us. It was unique and beautiful-not a typical hotel ballroom. Once we chose Seven Degrees for our reception space, we had a few meetings over the course of one year to plan and make sure all of the details for our big day were in order. The wedding coordinator that worked with us at Seven Degrees was so on top of things, I didn't have to worry about anything on the day-of my wedding. Once we arrived, we were blown away by how everything was decorated, the amazing food and service from the entire staff. We felt so special on our wedding day and are so happy we got to celebrate in our dream venue-Seven Degrees!

Review of Seven Degrees by Stella H.Reviewed on 1/05/2013 Stella H
Seven-Degrees was our ultimate wedding reception venue. There’s nothing but praise I have to say about the Seven-Degrees team. It was an amazing dream come true to be able to have our wedding reception at Seven-Degrees. Seven-Degrees was only our second venue that we visited and we know from the second we stepped foot on the venue that we just had to have our wedding reception at this location. My husband and I were impressed by the modern and contemporary feel of the venue. It’s located in a hidden spot on Laguna Canyon road and from the outside, you may not think there’s anything special with the location but once you start stepping in and noticing the details, the architecture, and the layout, you know how special the venue really is. The modern and artsy theme fit well with the feel of our wedding. When we left there from our visit and tour, my husband and I couldn’t stop thinking about Seven-Degrees and all that the venue had to offer for a wedding reception. We were blown away and the more we thought about the place, the more we realized we needed to have our reception there. The tour we had just impressed the heck out of us. It is such a versatile location and you can treat it as a blank canvas to do anything you want there with your reception. At the same time, they have all of the state-of-the-art technology that is ready to be incorporated into your reception to make the end result out-of-this-world. There are so many different layers and textures within the venue itself which makes for an awesome time and great photographs. You have endless opportunities to be creative with this space for your event.

Amazing!Reviewed on 11/06/2012 Jennifer M
I was so pleased to have booked my wedding reception at Seven Degrees. They were very accommodating in making my special a day/night to remember. I will admit, this place cost us a pretty penny, but was worth every penny. Our guests loved the place and we received so many compliments on the decor as well as the food. I cannot wait to see our photos and video! you will not be disappointed with this place. Our coordinator Keviann was with me from beginning to end in helping me plan our day, and she did a phenomenal job!
Wonderful Place for a wedding!Reviewed on 10/25/2012 Joelle D
The venue is beautiful and Elizabeth the wedding coordinator is the best. She goes above and beyond to make your wedding wonderful. La Palapa Del Mar is a hidden gem. All of my guests were amazed at how beautiful the Del Mar room was, It feels like you are in Europe. It is over looking the beach so your guests will enjoy a wonderful view of the ocean and a great sunset. The food is AMAZING! I would highly recommend if you are looking for a wedding venue to check the La Palapa Del Mar room out, and be sure to ask for Elizabeth! Joelle
wedding at seven degreesReviewed on 8/21/2012 Lupe M
We decided on seven degrees because we did not want the conventional and traditional hotel ballroom, there's is an open space, modern type art gallery. Their sound system and lighting is awesome. Although having your wedding at seven degrees may not be cheap (just depends what it is you want), it is well worth it. They truly went above and beyond, service was exceptional, everyone raved about the food and service. Keviann was our coordinator and she and the rest of her colleagues really did an excellent job.

Wedding of my Dreams!!!Reviewed on 10/05/2011 Cindy G
[seven-degrees] is incredible and I couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else. The staff really took care of us and made sure to answer all our questions. We received so many compliments on how beautiful the wedding was and how much fun they had. The ceremony site was breath-taking- I am so glad I took a moment to look around at the beauty of everything before walking down the isle. The reception was amazing with all the lights and sound system. It made our DJ's job much easier and he was able to do video mixing...a huge PLUS!! I cannot wait to get the photos back - I know they will be amazing!!
Amazing overall experience!Reviewed on 9/18/2011 Lisa k
The staff were amazing even in crises! ( our videographer almost never showed) Keviann Is phenomenal and truly a godsend. Overall the wedding was amazing and they kept in contact throughout the whole process and worked out every detail and were very patient with me when I was very indecisive. Not to mention all of our guests raved about the amazing food and how beautiful every little detail was, it truly looked like my wedding could be in a magazine. I couldn't have asked for a better staff, food, or location. Thanks everyone!
Worth Every PennyReviewed on 9/15/2011 Rachelle R
This is the perfect venue if you are looking for a place that is non-traditional. The modern decor and hillside ambiances are amazing. Alyssa and Kevian were both amazing and were able to accommodate our busy schedules with afterhours meetings. The day of services were impeccable. Alyssa was always there to make sure I was doing well and if I needed anything. They played a big role in making sure the day events ran smoothly and on time leaving us with time to really enjoy our day!
WOW AMAZINGReviewed on 9/11/2011 Sara W
Where do I begin :) !! I had such an amzing experience here..My wedding was on Sunday August 21st 2011. I worked with Dora in the beginning to work out a price that will fit my budget. Not only did they work with me by doing a Sunday which was perfect anyway the comped me many things to help as my budget was tight. Dora the director was so friendly and the venue is so gorgeous. It is a blank canvas for you to create the wedding of your dreams. They do EVERYTHING there for you so that means you literally just choose what you want and they take it from there. The sky is the limit they do it all from the cake to the flowers to the amazing lighting which is done by a technician through the wedding, A Coordinator is INCLUDED which was so wonderful we chatted therough the whole year emailing each other when I would have any questions Alyssa was there and the day of she was there to organize and run everything I had no worries whatsoever..The Food! WOW! so many compliments on the food from our guests..the linens tables etc. You dont have to go through the pain of having to rent anything at all. It was so nice. They are so professional helpful and kind. My wedding looked like a dream..literally.. when I walked in to see it for the first time it took my breath away. They are the best EVER and I will refer everyone I can to them.
