Thank you to NOOR for giving us the opportunity to film their 3D virtual tour! 😊 Robert and his team are wonderful good people. Honest, easy-going, accommodating - a total Class Act!The beautiful Sofia and Ella Ballrooms (pictured) are the perfect venues for large or intimate events: weddings, fundraiser galas, corporate events, holiday parties, christening receptions, birthdays, proms, and more.Sofia seats up to 320 guests for seated banquets and 600 guests for a cocktail-style reception. Ella seats up to 120 for formal receptions with a dance floor and up to 250 guess for a cocktail-style reception.The venue is also conveniently located right downtown and around the corner to the City Hall. Perfect! If you want to feel taken care of, in a safe classy environment, this is the place for you! ❤️

Stunning place! One of the best venues in Los Angeles. What makes the place extra special are the people who run it. Robert and his team are kind, professional, honest, and accommodating. They will make you feel at home. Everything is impeccable. The decor, the ambiance, the vibe, the cleanliness. The venue is located conveniently in downtown Pasadena near City Hall. The sunset and views from the balcony are spectacular! A wonderful place to host any type of event - intimate or large, catered to all types of people, where you will feel safe, have fun and feel taken care of. I hear NOOR stands for light, illumination. This place will light up your life, for sure! ⭐️❤️

Had my wedding at NOOR ELLA in October 2021 with about 105 total guests a total cost of about $20k for the venue only which included food catering, room rental, chairs, tables, linens, open bar, and few other enhancements).I had 5 months to plan the whole wedding and my experience with the venue was positive: Anna was my event manager, very sweet, responsive, and accommodating. Ella room is sooo elegant and romantic, convenient guest parking and location, Excellent service and the food was delicious.NOOR offered a list of preferred vendors which I found helpful. I went with their preferred florist (Del Sol Flowers/ Narciso) who did an amazing job. note that the preferred vendors list doesnt however guarantee their availability so I ended up looking elsewhere for other vendorsI wished the stage in the room was removable because it was too small and limited how I could decorate it, also was not enough space to accommodate my ballgown!!!!!. luckily I had two dresses for my wedding, the other one was a mermaid dress that I changed into before the grand entrance.. on my wedding day, most things went by smoothly and as planned, minor issues came up and were handled promptly by the an overall, I was happy with my experience.

This is the most beautiful space for a wedding or event. It is large enough to social distance your guest they have great service employees. You cant go wrong with this one. Even parking was only $6.00 with validation. Its perfect!!! My friends and family are still talking about it 3 weeks later they had such a good time.

Went for our cousins wedding, all the staff was on point and thank you guys for loaning us a safe place for our baby to change clothes and diapers. Food was alright, but that was the bride and grooms choice on what was served, so cant really dock them on that aspect. Beautiful venue nonetheless, we had a great time.

Kaelan, Robert, and the NOOR staff were very good to us!I had my debut (18th birthday for a Filipino girl) in January 2012 at the Ella ballroom (smaller ballroom) so when it came time to look for a wedding venue in Pasadena, of course, the Noor was on the contender list.Trevor, my now husband, and I did a tour of the Sofia (larger ballroom) ballroom in November 2018 (1 month after getting engaged) and it looked perfect! It was renovated from the time I had my debut in 2012 and Trevor got that “feeling” when he saw it in-person.We originally booked it for our wedding reception on 10/17/2020. Trevor and I had a church ceremony. When COVID-19 hit, the NOOR made it super easy to reschedule and postpone our wedding reception. We moved it to 10/09/2021 seamlessly.The Noor is your one-stop-shop of wedding venues. You have EVERYTHING you need plus gorgeous architecture. It was the wedding reception of my dreams.Thank you, Kaelan, Robert and all the Noor staff. I hope to work together again in the future!

The first thing we noticed about Noor is that Robert finds a way to say yes to all our dreams! My daughter, the creative bride, wanted a special space full of warmth and cheer. Noor made everything a terrific success! Robert gave us our own sweet hand holder, Kaylan, who made our lives so easy! Also, Noor worked so well with our wedding planner Nicole Harris at Dreams in Detail and together they found a way to create a fantasy ballroom beyond our wildest dreams!The food was spectacular and the service impeccable! We had over 200 guests and everyone got special attention. We were given the option to put and the appetizers and main courses at the table so people could help themselves. Top shelf alcohol adorned each table so, of course, our flowers by Lark Flowers were placed very high so they would show. Noor let Lark Flowers put a truss so the flowers all over the ballroom could cascade down in its beauty!We enjoyed lamb chops, the salmon, the best appetizers, the most delicious hors doeuvres and more!Security was subtle and so excellent that our high profile guests took off their sunglasses and had such a great time!I cannot think of one place in California that could have set the ambiance, elegance and superb comfort Noor is able to naturally create!We will always remember with delight the joy we had a Noor in Pasadena!

Ive had the honor to DJ a few events here. Staff is great. Parking is Easy. Loading in and load out is even easier. Looking forward to playing here again soon.

From the first email to adding one last song to the end of the night, Robert, Maria, Kenji and the whole Noor team were amazing. We visited the Sofia Ballroom probably about 20+ times and each time the team was so patient to answer every question Alex, our parents and myself had. And there were A LOT.We needed a large enough venue for 200+ guests: check. It needed to be mostly inside since February is unpredictable, but since it’s California we wanted some outdoor aspect: check.A large greenery accent wall, champagne tower and the most amazing bar: check check and check.The Noor staff had to deal with my 2020 wedding for over a year and a half. Kenji was my site coordinator and I could not have asked for a better person to help make all my wedding dreams come true. Every email and voicemail were answered in less than 24 hours and always ended with please let me know if you have any more questions. Countless parts of our wedding were changed all the way to just days before and he always found a solution to ease my panic. Thankful is an understatement for how I feel about Kenji. Every detail and even some surprises were were met with excitement. February 22,2020 was out favorite day.Robert is a food and wine enthusiast. Everyone knows as long as your guests stomachs are satisfied and thirst is quenched, your wedding is off to an amazing start. To stay in “budget” we booked with one of Noor’s several promotions they offer throughout the year. Chicken has a bad rep in the wedding world. Both chicken options, herb roasted chicken with mash potatoes and vegetables and portobello mushroom chicken with fingerling potatoes and vegetables, were not only served hot but were flavorful and large. Our vegetarian option was the portobello mushroom ravioli with vegetables and even the meat eaters wanted a piece of it.As a gift from Noor, Alex and I enjoyed filet mignon, prawns, mash potatoes and vegetables. YUM!4 super bartenders held down an open bar for 200+ adults, we had an adult only wedding, for 6 hours. After the countless food complements, the our guests were amazed how their drink order were memorized and never had to wait for their drinks. I am not lying when I say there were always 60+ people hovering the bar the whole time.Onto the party outside. Music was playing and cigars were enjoyed while guest enjoyed fresh air without getting soaked in the rain. Noor also allows outsource food venders for late night snacks, so our guests enjoyed made to order tacos and chilaquiles.We had the best vendors and most of them Noor never worked with. Each one of the vendors complimented Kenji on his diligence and organization.My only complaint of the night is that 6 hours was not enough. 12 hours wouldn’t have been. Noor hosted a night of family, friends, and the best fiesta this East Coast West Coast - Irish/ Mexican couple could have ever dreamt of.
