Welcome to
the Blog!

Fresh photos with the bomb lighting ✨

My first wedding of 2020 got me like whoa 😍 This multicultural wedding in the Bay area combined Stephen’s Nigerian culture with Dorothy’s African-American culture so beautifully that your eyes might explode with tears from the beauty of it! Speaking of tears, these two had the most tear-jerking and romantic vows! I loved every second! My favorite vow from Stephen to Dorothy was when he promised to love & protect her, her family & the children they’d have forever (plus whoever she wanted to add to that list) 😂🥰

I am also obsessed with all THREE wedding looks that Dorothy & Stephen chose! Keep scrolling to see all of their amazing fashion choices! What an honor it was to be asked to photograph a wedding from a culture that is different from my own. I learned so much about Nigerian and African-American wedding traditions from these two cuties. Feeling blessed to be trusted by my couples. Bring on all the multicultural weddings!!

Multicultural Wedding Bay Area by Cheers Babe Photo

Multicultural Wedding Bay Area | Dorothy & Stephen

Wedding

My incredibly talented florist friend, Inessa Nichols, hosted a dinner a couple weeks ago (before this crazy coronavirus outbreak!) to celebrate International Women’s Day with some boss women in the wedding industry. I am so lucky to work in an industry that is buzzing with inspiring women that I can look up to on the daily.

Not every industry has carved a path for women to succeed and I think the biggest reason the wedding industry feels so great for women is because we’ve learned to support each other instead of compete with each other!

I recently had a lightbulb moment & realized that no one had formally critiqued my work since I was an art student in college. So I looked around me and asked about 15 women in this industry that I respect so so much and said “will you tell me the hard stuff? No compliments, just show me my blind spots and where you think I need improvement”. Here’s the crazy part: they all said “Absolutely.” They said “I will help you” they said “Let’s make you stronger”. I owe these women a massive THANK YOU! This dinner celebrates moments like that!

Let’s keep lifting each other up & helping each other get better side-by-side 💛 Enjoy the photos of this stunning dinner party!

International Women's Day Dinner with Inessa Nichols Design and Cheers Babe Photo

International Women’s Day with Inessa Nichols Design

Personal

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 unique Los Angeles wedding venue? Probs real tired. That’s why I’ve compiled a list of the best, coolest, prettiest, cutest, dopest, Bright Indoor wedding venues in Los Angeles that I recommend you visit! These are spots to really consider if you are planning a wedding in some of the hottest months of the year, as they all have beautiful, bright indoor space for your guests to feel some reprieve from the heat. These are fool-proof and gorgeous – sign on their dotted line and call a sista up, because I’m SO there. 🙂

Cheers Babe Photo offers wedding photography that lets you live your best life. We help couples capture the party of their lives in LA, OC and SF. Take a look at some of our favorites weddings over the years! We hope we get to chat with you about YOUR wedding day. Here are the best bright indoor wedding venues in Los Angeles!

12 Bright Indoor Wedding Venues in Los Angeles

Casita Hollywood // Hollywood

Imagine a clean, Mediterranean style courtyard ceremony (yes, there are twinkle lights for night time!) that transitions into a cool, concrete industrial loft-style room for reception. Unique, right?

The Ebell of Long Beach // 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!

Forme // Burbank

Designed as a blank canvas, you can do just about anything decor-wise in this gorgeous & clean spot! Also there’s parking, heyyyy!

HNYPT // DTLA

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!

Hudson Loft // DTLA

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!

The Lodge at Malibou Lake // Agoura Hills

Garden ceremony at it’s finest and a modern interior that almost looks like Joanna Gaines designed it — so pretty!

Lombardi House // Hollywood

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!

OUE Skyspace // DTLA

You may be familiar with OUE Skyspace as the “place with the glass slide” — yes it’s the tallest building in LA and they have a theme-park-like attraction, but that’s not the main draw. You can rent this place out for your wedding & let me tell you that it feels like you’re on top of the world! I did my very first styled shoot here back in 2015 and we got to take some photos on the helipad – it was so exhilarating! The indoor space and deck has gone through a massive renovation in the last new years and it turned out so gorgeous.

Ruby Street // Highland Park

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!

SmashBox Studios // Culver City

Since this spot is a working photo studio, it is the definition of a blank slate … with amazing soft light! It’s basically a photographer’s dream — everyone will look incredible!

South Park Center // DTLA

Gosh, this place has views for DAYS! I love the modern lines on the massive windows & I can only imagine how this room sparkles at night when the city lights up around it.

Vibiana // DTLA

Originally the City’s first Archdiocese Catholic cathedral, this space is awe-inspiring. It’s all-white and so bright inside and has a gorgeous garden patio!

There you have it! The best indoor wedding venues in Los Angeles. I hope you are feeling inspired & that you’ll reach out to us to capture this amazing day you’re planning!

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 offbeat LA wedding venue? Probs real tired. That’s why I’ve compiled a list of the best, coolest, prettiest, cutest, dopest, OFFBEAT & UNIQUE LA 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. 🙂

Cheers Babe Photo offers wedding photography that lets you live your best life. We help couples capture the party of their lives in LA, OC and SF. We hope we get to chat with you about YOUR wedding day. Here are the best offbeat LA wedding venues!

Unique & Offbeat LA Wedding Venues That Are Insta Worthy

The Adamson House // Malibu

Beach, Garden AND Spanish Casa? Can you ask for more? This place is breathtaking and will feel like the ultimate destination for guests coming from out of town.

Avalon Hotel // Beverly Hills

If you’re looking for something colorful and retro, then this hotel is your spot! MCM vibes for days!

Camarillo Airport // Camarillo

I know this one is kind of out of left field, or left runway?, but it’s such a cool spot! If you’re into the industrial vibes & have a vision for adding a lot of personal details, this place is perfect. Also, can you say helicopter entrance?

Casita Hollywood // Hollywood

Imagine a clean, Mediterranean style courtyard ceremony (yes, there are twinkle lights for night time!) that transitions into a cool, concrete industrial loft-style room for reception. Unique, right?

The Ebell of Long Beach // 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!

El Rey Theatre // Miracle Mile

For all my music junkies out there, how fun to tie the knot in a concert venue & put your names on the marquee!

Festoon // Culver West

Between trendy Venice Beach and growing Culver City you’ll find Festoon LA, one of the best offbeat LA wedding venues. 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 // Highland Park

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!!

Forme // Burbank

Designed as a blank canvas, you can do just about anything decor-wise in this gorgeous & clean spot! Also there’s parking, heyyyy!

Grassroom // Arts District

There is 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!

HNYPT // DTLA

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!

Hudson Loft // DTLA

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!

Los Angeles Athletic Club // DTLA

This spot was recently remodeled and the palm wallpaper & striped benches are too dang fun! Oh, did I forget to mention the epic view of downtown Los Angeles? Well your guests won’t!

Lombardi House // Hollywood

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!

Malibu Rocky Oaks // Malibu

I mean, WOW! When I first saw this place I couldn’t get it off my mind. It’s a Tuscan-style mansion, with a modern infinity pool on the patio AND a cobblestone helipad where you can have your ceremony overlooking Malibu Canyon. Basically if a wedding venue could do a mic drop, this one just did.

Millwick // Arts District

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.

Palihouse WeHo // West Hollywood

One of the smaller offbeat LA wedding venues out there if you’re having a more intimate gathering, but literally so dang cool.

Rolling Greens // Arts District

Plant shop in an industrial graffiti-covered building turned wedding venue? YES. Yes indeed.

Ruby Street // Highland Park

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!

Santa Monica Proper Hotel // Santa Monica

Can Kelly Wearstler do anything wrong? Not in my book! She designed yet another ultra-chic hotel that has details that ooze LA luxury.

Smogshoppe // Culver City

Smogshoppe is such a classic LA venue. It’s been around for years & I’m convinced they might be responsible for sparking the succulent wall trend!

South Park Center // DTLA

Gosh, this place has views for DAYS! I love the modern lines on the massive windows & I can only imagine how this room sparkles at night when the city lights up around it.

Theatre ACE Hotel // DTLA

For those of you with a flair for the dramatic, this place is meant for you. The gothic, historic theatre is such a spectacle & the cutest part is that they’ll even put your names on the marquee!

Union Station // DTLA

This historic site is actually available for weddings, how awesome is that!

The Unique Space // Arts District

The description is truly in the name at this venue! There’s so many unique little gems in this Arts District venue, not to mention a rooftop with a gorgeous view of the city!

Valentine DTLA // Arts District

Literally next door to Grassroom is Valentine DTLA! I am obsessed with this pink geometric door mural they have and the rest of the space is just as special and unique!

Vibiana // DTLA

Originally the City’s first Archdiocese Catholic cathedral, this space is awe-inspiring. It’s all-white and so bright inside and has a gorgeous garden patio!

Wayfarers Chapel // Rancho Palos Verdes

Unlike any chapel I’ve seen, Wayfarers is enclosed by all-glass walls and is one of the most unique pieces of architecture in the LA area. Love this option if you are looking for a chapel-style venue!

There you have it! The best offbeat LA wedding venues. I hope you are feeling inspired & that you’ll reach out to us to capture this amazing day you’re planning!

One day, I was scrolling through my instagram feed and a photo popped up: my friend Jodee looking too cute posing next to a pink vintage car and the photo was location tagged in Cuba! And I was like whoa, dats cool sis. I talked to Jodee and was like, “What brought you to Cuba? Tell me more!” She told me she was there photographing this amazing trip with this travel company called El Camino — they curate these awesome trips that are ultra immersive and totally non-touristy!

So I started online stalking El Camino Travel & basically discovered that they’re the coolest, trendiest, but still totally authentic travel company I’d ever seen. Next thing you know, I reached out & I was on the next trip to Colombia!! (there were a few more steps in there, don’t worry, I just don’t wanna bore you!)

We spent the first half of the trip in Cartagena near the coast, which was a colorful dream of a city and the second half of the trip took us to the bustling city of Medellin full of art & Colombian spirit. It was amazing to watch the travelers (many of them traveling solo) bond with each other over the trip and make some amazing memories. Here are some of the highlights!!

Sometimes all it takes to spark a love story is the dance floor at a work party — that’s exactly how Lainey & TJ’s story began! The details of that night might be blurry, but each remembers that moment & will forever. Fast forward a bit & TJ is proposing to Lainey on the Malibu pier during what she thought was supposed to be a doggie date with their pup, Lissie, & her bestie! Needless to say, Lissie needed to be included in their Joshua Tree engagement photos since she’s been such a big part of their engagement!

Not only is Lissie the cutest, Lainey & TJ have a personal style all their own & I am here for it! We all had so much fun running all over Joshua Tree National Park for their Joshua Tree engagement photos & were even blessed with an epic cotton candy colored sunset – yay! I’m still not over how cute her heart shaped engagement ring is & how perfect her jewelry complimented her session outfits (oh & she made the jewelry herself!) Truly, I cannot wait for their desert wedding this Fall!

Psst…get your curser ready to hit that “pin it” button because these pics are about to give you some major Joshua Tree engagement photos inspo! And don’t forget to see more of our beautiful engagement photos!

Engagement

It means the WORLD to me when my couples tell their friends that they loved working with me. That’s how I ended up at Jeanna & Austin’s Willow Heights Mansion wedding — thanks to the kind referral from my lovely couple, Christina & Wesley (who now have the cutest little girl!!). Even though we froze our little booties off in the windy December air, Jeanna & Austin’s Willow Heights Mansion Wedding was the epitome of class and elegance. The soft white and pastel tones throughout give it such a timeless feel against the fairy tale like mansion at the top of the hill. I hope you enjoy these beautiful memories!
