NOOR opened it’s doors for the first time on September 10, 2010, hosting brunch for renowned NPR radio station 89.3 FM’s top contributors and radio personalities. Since our grand opening on November 10, 2010, our event venue has been host to thousands of wonderful weddings with couples throughout Los Angeles and events featuring numerous celebrities and political leaders. From Weddings to Birthday Parties, Fundraiser Galas, Christenings, Graduations and every other type of celebration you can imagine, we have helped our clients bring their dreams and visions to life in our beautiful banquet halls and event spaces.



NOOR is the brainchild of music producer and entrepreneur Robert Shahnazarian and his wife Maggie. From the very beginning their mission was to create a family-run, boutique event venue delivering the same kind of all-inclusive service offerings that were traditionally exclusive to international resorts whilst retaining a very personal touch. All NOOR Clients are assigned a seasoned Event Manager who are dedicated to guiding them through the planning process, removing the stress associated with choosing important details and offering a wealth of creative input and knowledge. The NOOR team prides itself on attention to detail. Their creative flair and absolute perfection in customer service have made NOOR Pasadena’s Best Of ten years in a row.
