Hey friends! Welcome to another post about best wedding venues in and around the Los Angeles area! I have had so much fun putting these lists together for you. (There are even a few unfamiliar venues I learned more about by compiling these). So far, we have covered DTLA, Malibu + Culver City/Mid-Wilshire. Now, I want to introduce you to a few of my favorite places in and around classic Hollywood!
If vintage Hollywood glamour is your vibe, there’s no better place than Hollywood Roosevelt hotel. Located in the heart of Hollywood, this golden age of tinseltown is a fun way to immerse guests into the Hollywood experience. You can even host your event on the famous rooftop overseeing Hollywood Blvd. Plus, if you and your guests are into the supernatural, LA’s famous hotel is said to be haunted by Marilyn Monroe who tragically passed away there.
If you’re looking for a hidden gem in Hollywood, I would highly recommend Lombardi House. You might even pass it while driving, not realizing the beautiful grounds that lay behind the gate. You’ll forget you’re in Los Angeles! Lombardi House not only has an expansive outdoor space, there is also a large, picturesque modern barn you can use for your event. I love this space because it’s so easy to flip from ceremony to reception.
If you’re looking for a unique space with a lot of history, you need to check out The Houdini Estate. The grounds are huge, and completely yours. There is even an option to stay in the main house with a few guests or family. According to their website, there are still hidden tunnels, caves and a deep water tank that Houdini practiced in. This place has a lot of character, but recent renovations keep it updated without taking away from the charm.
Elysian is perfect for an intimate, small wedding for you and your beloved. Hosting dinners for a max of 30 guests, this beautiful loft venue has both indoor and outdoor spaces for guests to mingle and enjoy. You can really let your creative design dreams go wild here, while keeping the day about you and your spouse celebrating your love with your nearest and dearest. For minimalist decor inspiration, check out this wedding we did at the Elysian!
Though technically in North Hollywood, The Garland Hotel is another fun place to consider when finding a wedding venue. The best part of the Garland Hotel, is there are a ton of different indoor and outdoor spaces to choose from. Bonus points, guests can stay on the property, making the guest experience seamless.
There are so many things I love about The Fig House! From its unique, modern architecture and design, to its bombshell in-house catering team, The Fig House has so much to offer! The venue is so beautifully curated, there are incredible photo opportunities around every corner. This modern wedding at Fig House is still an all time favorite of mine. It’s close to Hollywood but technically located in Highland Park.
