Wedding planning isn’t easy, especially if you’re planning it in Los Angeles. As the entertainment capital of the world, it’s crucial to have a chic, glamorous and trendy wedding right in the heart of it all.
We’ve compiled a list of Los Angeles wedding venues that go above and beyond to create the wedding of a lifetime.
The London West Hollywood: The London West Hollywood makes each moment memorable as you surround yourself amongst the romantic gardens, elegant ballroom and stunning rooftop terrace with twinkling views of the Los Angeles skyline. Andaz West Hollywood: If a swank, modern and upscale destination is the vibe you’re after, wedding venues don’t get much swankier than the Andaz West Hollywood. Mondrian: In a sensual, urban and sophisticated setting, the Mondrian has the greatest selection of venues within the hotel. From the scenic Asia De Cuba, Skybar, Penthouse, Outdoor Living and/or pool area, the Mondrian’s venues can accommodate up to 425 people. Sunset Tower Hotel: Keeping its old-Hollywood roots in a modern society, the Sunset Tower Hotel offers a breathtaking indoor/outdoor room with stunning views that will make your wedding memorable for a lifetime. Sunset Marquis: Just off the famous Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, the Sunset Marquis has hosted legendary events throughout history.
Known as a city of infinite possibility, the same rings true for wedding venues in Los Angeles. Any storied spot in L.A. can be turned into the party of a lifetime; the only thing limiting you is budget and how far your imagination can stretch.
If you're going for traditional, the sophisticated seaside ambiance at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel Casa del Mar in Santa Monica will offer that to you. Find expansive views of the Pacific, picture perfect grand staircases and a beachfront terrace, not to mention a lively lounge perfect for a reception or after party. The Langham Huntington, Pasadena is also a storybook spot. Fans of ABC's "The Bachorlette" may have seen Ashley and J.P. tie the knot there at the end of the 2012 season in an episode that showcased the Langham's sprawling gardens and grand ballrooms that date back to 1907.
If you start thinking on a much grander level, consider renting out some of L.A.'s iconic attractions. What about a wedding on Paramount Studios Backlot? There, New York Street encompasses a five-acre site and recreates eight areas of the city including Brooklyn, Greenwich Village, SoHo, among others. Tables are set up right in the middle of the street for dinner service and stages for entertainment are perfectly situated in any intersection. Tying the knot next to Space Shuttle Endeavor at the California Science Center is also a possibility, as are any of the halls in the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles.
