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?

Cielo Farms // Malibu

Perched in the rolling hills of Malibu, Cielo Farms is an absolute haven. From the stone building that looks like something from Tuscany to the twinkle lights over the lawn, this venue is absolute perfection.

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!


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!
