California Science Center Launches Wedding Venue Services at the Samuel Oschin Space Shuttle Endeavour Pavilion “For Those Who Love to the Moon (or International Space Station) and Back”

Press Release / February 10, 2021

Los Angeles (February 10, 2021) - To commemorate Valentine’s Day and give a lift to lovebirds looking for a spectacular, spacious, protocol-safe wedding venue, the California Science Center is offering two of its most popular venues: The Samuel Oschin Space Shuttle Pavilion and Wallis Annenberg Building. Vice President of Event Services Christina Sion notes that, “We were motivated to provide a service to couples who had to postpone their weddings due to the pandemic, and who, now may be encountering a shortage of venues from the pent-up demand. We’d like to assist by opening a portion of our events calendar so couples will have a safe, unique venue to consider.”

Along with the venue reservations, couples will receive access to an approved list of wedding planners and caterers as well as a myriad of unique options including access to Science Center exhibit galleries and in-house furniture. Inquiries and tentative date holds are welcome as the Science Center awaits a confirmed reopening date from local health agencies. Safety is a priority and, once permitted to reopen, all events will adhere to current local and state agency guidelines.

Sion adds that, “The wedding planners and caterers with whom we have mindfully partnered are a purposeful reflection of Greater Los Angeles; they connect organically with Los Angeles' rich and diverse landscape of cultures, faiths, LGBTQ communities, and values. Diversity is in the DNA of the Science Center culture and our Event Services team strives to make sure inclusion is a deliberate part of our discussions and decision making while building our network of vendors to support our events.”
