Hello my LA bride-to-be’s!! How tired are you of googling a million places in this vast state to find the picture perfect wedding venue? Probs real tired. That’s why I’ve compiled a list of the best, coolest, prettiest, cutest, dopest Los Angeles wedding venues that I recommend you visit first! These are fool-proof and gorgeous – sign on their dotted line and call a sista up, because I’m SO there.
Right in LA’s thriving arts district (which has THE best views of the city skyline) is Row DTLA. They have multiple venue options from ground level to rooftop, but the B1 | 777 Rooftop pictured here is the ultimate dreamy wedding spot & can fit a ton of guests!
Between trendy Venice Beach and growing Culver City you’ll find Festoon LA, the perfect West LA wedding venue. The space is small, but gorgeous – the kitchen was designed by LA design maven, Sarah Sherman Samuel & the dining & lounge areas by 100 Layer Cake! You can fit 60 guests seated – an amazing option for a more intimate wedding or even your rehearsal dinner. It is so instagram-worthy it hurts!
The Fig House
If color is your jam, then The Fig House was literally designed for you (and you are designed for me – ha!). This is another amazing venue with a super-star designer behind it! The owners hired HGTV’s Emily Henderson to design & curate the space. This literally perfect LA wedding venue is nestled in between downtown & Pasadena, right in Highland Park. Love me some East LA!!
Okay, here we begin a series of amazing wedding venues owned by the Marvimon group! They take old buildings & bring them new life with super unique details! This is Grassroom in DTLA, where you’ll find a jungle-like courtyard for the coolest ceremony and insanely cool triangular door openings that lead you to the reception space!
Literally next door to Grassroom is Valentine DTLA! I am obsessed with this geometric door mural they have and the rest of the space is just as special and unique!
I feel like the coolest couples in LA get married at Millwick. I don’t know what it is, but this place just oozes cool-factor and has jungle vibes for days! It’s also in the arts district as well & there’s some super cool opportunities around the venue for outdoor portraits with a city view in the back.
Okay so The Forge is technically a photo studio (with an impressive installation wall of cow skulls). I know they’ve hosted weddings before & there is just a ton of room for creativity in this space if you or your event designer/stylist is ready to dream up something really cool! If you need help doing that, my wedding florist/event designer has designed a wedding in this space before!
Over in Hollywood, Lombardi House will give you all the barn-vibes you’ve ever wanted, but in the most modern & cool way (thank you white walls)! Not only are both indoor spots super beautiful, their courtyard spaces are equally breathtaking!
The Ruby Street
Previously a suffragette house, then a civil rights meeting place, and even a progressive church, The Ruby Street in Highland Park is such a unique spot to say your “I do”s and celebrate! I just adore their historic stained glass windows!
Ohhhhhh my goodness – where do I even begin with Hudson Loft? Oh right! I GOT MARRIED HERE!! Obviously I am super biased, but this is one of my favorite venues – and it’s more than just sentimental for me. It’s the perfect industrial loft right in the heart of bustling downtown & has so many options. There’s incredible getting ready spaces, prep rooms, a stunning rooftop & view, and even a giant freight elevator that we actually drove our car into & used for our grand exit!
Pronounced “honeypot”, this all white industrial space was actually the runner-up for our wedding. I love that you can open up the garage door at HNYPT and let the natural light in! Also the rafters give you tons of opportunity for some insanely cool hanging decor!
Office Party is literally the office of one of LA’s coolest entrepreneurs that you can rent out for your party! There’s this cool space and an outdoor courtyard for cocktail time!
The Surfrider Malibu
Ok wow, gorgeous!! I honestly don’t even know if The Surfrider hotel allows events or not, but if they do, it’d be epic. Their rooms are like, perfect California chic – even if you’re getting married elsewhere in Malibu, this would be an incredible space to get ready in for the day!
The Ebell of Long Beach
One of my dear friends got married here at The Ebell of Long Beach a couple years back. Not only is it like, house plant heaven, the Mediterranean style space (especially the amazing tile floor) is just super dreamy!
The Line Hotel
If you’re looking for something poolside, then The Line Hotel in Koreatown (K-town) is your spot! They actually have like, 5 or 6 different venue spaces within this one hotel & they’re all really amazing! Not to mention, the concrete walls in the rooms makes for really cool getting ready photos (which is why I got ready here the day of my wedding!).
Mr. C Beverly Hills
This place is ALL classic LA glam. There’s poolside space, city view balconies, literally everything you think of when you picture “Old Hollywood”. Mr. C is a hotel in Beverly Hills and it’s ready for your extra-ness, boo.
Dang, dude. Saddlerock is so bomb. They have 4 event spaces, 100 acres of wine vines AND zoo animals (zebra, camel, giraffe, llama, alpaca, yak, highland cow, etc.…)!
Greenhouse at PLATFORM
If you’re hoping to get married somewhere near Culver City, Greenhouse at PLATFORM is an amazing option! Platform is basically a trendy boutique shopping center & the Greenhouse sits upstairs onsite. The name speaks for itself – gorgeous glass house! Bonus – one of my favorite murals in LA by Jen Stark is located on the parking structure here!
Tallulah’s is a super yum Mexican restaurant in Santa Monica – right near the beach! You can rent it out for an intimate wedding or rehearsal dinner & it is so colorful and gorgeous inside! Also, who doesn’t want to serve Mexican food at their wedding/rehearsal dinner?
Beverly Hills Hotel
Pretty sure this icon of a hotel speaks for itself! The Beverly Hills Hotel has been LA’s go-to spot for movie-stars and celebs for over a century. The banana-leaf palm wallpaper in the halls is ridiculously memorable, the gardens are spectacular and their reception hall will make you lose your mind.
Last but not least, the Wilshire Loft is such a cool spot if you’re looking for a rooftop wedding venue that’s RIGHT in the the city – you’re actually surrounded by the downtown high rises, which feels so cool. It’s kind of a blank slate, so you could get really creative with your decor here!
