Inn of the Seventh Ray | Great LA Wedding Venues

North of Malibu in the mountains of Topanga is the Inn of the Seventh Ray, a great restaurant and a great LA wedding venue. Shortly past the turnoff for the Getty Villa on Pacific Coast Highway, turn to follow the sinuous Topanga Canyon Boulevard as it weaves through the mountains, leaving behind the affluent suburbs of Malibu and melting into wilderness. Then, after a few miles, homes and stores will begin to appear among the trees. Among them is the Inn of the Seventh Ray.

great la wedding venue

The Inn grows out of the forest – it’s cloaked from the main road by a veil of trees and lush vegetation surrounds the dining area. Sparse chaparral canopies of leaves hover above the tables, providing an abundance of shade from the often unrelenting LA sun. Much of the patio floo is covered with simple brick and rock, giving it a rustic and romantic feel.

Santa Barbara Courthouse | Best Santa Barbara Wedding Minister

As a Santa Barbara wedding minister, I’ve been all around the county at the city’s most beautiful wedding venues. But my favorite still is the Santa Barbara Courthouse. Just off of Santa Barbara’s highly walkable State Street, with its Spanish-style architecture and its preponderance of unique little shops and restaurants, is the magnificently designed Courthouse. Someone once called it the most beautiful place in American where you can be sentenced to death. But while capital punishment is currently on a moratorium in California, you can experience the flipside of that coin by getting married there.

Bel-Air Bay Club | Top Pacific Palisades Wedding Minister

As a Pacific Palisades wedding minister, I’ve worked with beautiful Bel-Air Bay Club plenty of times. Above the event center are the lush hills and stunning homes of Pacific Palisades, below are beaches that continue for miles in either direction. The Bel-Air Bay Club, situated on a bluff overlooking Pacific Coast Highway as it winds parallel to the coastline, offers views of it all at its prime location in Pacific Palisades.

Built at the end of the Roaring Twenties, the Bel-Air Bay Club has a long history in Los Angeles’ social scene. With red-tiled roofs and a whitewashed exterior it’s reminiscent of the Spanish colonial style, one of the last remaining of its kind that were once so abundant in throughout LA.

Diamond Bar Center | Best Los Angeles Wedding Venues

In the San Gabriel Valley at the edge of the Chino Hills sits the Diamond Bar Center. Unless you’re looking for it, you probably won’t know it’s there.

Laguna Beach, with its quaint atmosphere, beautiful homes, and dazzling natural beauty, is a top destination for Orange County wedding ceremonies.

Easy Airport Weddings

Airport weddings are great for those who want to get married in Los Angeles for legal reasons. Los Angeles County is one of the few places in the United States the issues a confidential license, which is a plus for many couples. Unlike a public marriage license that you obtain by waiting in line at the County Clerk’s office, a Los Angeles confidential marriage license doesn’t require witnesses for your ceremony and doesn’t make your marriage records public once they are filed – only you and your fiancé can access them. In other words, the LA confidential marriage license is great for a private ceremony and those couples that don’t want heaps of junk mail crowding up their mailboxes.

El Matador Beach | Great LA Beach Wedding

Malibu, with its “21 miles of scenic beauty,” is one of the top destinations for an LA Beach Wedding. As opposed to the sprawling urban feel of the rest of Los Angeles County, Malibu is wedged in between the beach and the mountains and is built almost entirely along Pacific Coast Highway. Along the thoroughfare you can find fine restaurants, beautiful homes, and, of course, beaches like El Matador.

la beach wedding

El Matador is one of Malibu’s and Southern California’s most beautiful beaches. A few miles past Point Dume – another popular wedding venue – El Matador begins where the city fades. Storefronts grow more sparse, mansions less frequently dot the hillsides, and the beaches spread out undisturbed. What houses there are are obscured by tall trees and so subtly fade into the beach atmosphere that you hardly notice their presence.

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) | LAX Wedding

Hundreds of planes arrive at and depart from the Los Angeles International Airport – better known as LAX – every day. An LAX wedding is perfect for couples in town for only a day but who want to get married in LA. I have performed plenty of impromptu wedding ceremonies at LAX and other airports throughout Southern California.

But if you’re in town for only a day or perhaps even just the layover between two flights, why would you want to get married at the airport? Well, besides being a unique wedding venue of its own, LAX is the gateway for out of state visitors to obtain a confidential marriage license. Los Angeles County is the only county in the United States that offers couples confidential marriage licenses.

The Last Bookstore is a perfectly unique LA wedding venue for a small improvised elopement or even a large wedding. A book-loving bride and groom will be enchanted by the Last Bookstore’s vibrant color, unique décor, and funky layout.

Walking through the store is a journey through unimaginably diverse ideas, stories, and histories.

la wedding minister

And yet despite the high ceilings and never-ending shelves, it has an almost rustic feeling. Instead of feeling like most mega-stores – a harshly lit Barnes and Noble – the dark wood shelving, cushioned seating, plentiful windows and deep ocean blue walls create a commodious atmosphere.

You can find a corner nook where you favorite author’s books rest on the shelf and be entirely undisturbed while you look over the back cover synopses or begin reading your next novel.

la wedding minister

Or take your wedding inside the store. There are innumerable niches within the Last Bookstore where you can hold an impromptu ceremony. Or for a larger wedding, contact the store in advance and they can organize the whole affair for you. Rent out the store for an evening and hold your ceremony and reception among the pages of the greats.

Griffith Observatory | Hollywood Wedding

The Griffith Park Observatory is a Hollywood wedding venue that provides one of Los Angeles’ best views. Sitting along the face of Mount Hollywood in Griffith Park to the north of Downtown Hollywood, Los Angeles, and Beverly Hills, the observatory’s sweeping views of the LA Basin extend from Santa Monica south to Long Beach, Huntington Beach, and beyond.

Hollywood wedding

Step away from the observatory and you’ll find numerous trails winding between the rugged chaparral landscape. The towering trees and hill shrubs take you miles away from the city into scenes reminiscent of much larger Angeles National Forest, making it hard to believe that you’re still in the center of California’s largest metropolis.

Hollywood wedding

Outside, the Observatory is a great starting point for hikes in the surrounding hills and forest. Paths that wrap around the building branch off into the rugged undeveloped chaparral landscape, leading up to the Hollywood sign (if strenuous hiking is your thing) or down through the park.

Inside, you can take in the Art Deco interior. Step in to the rotunda, look up at the ceiling, and let your jaw drop as if to eat up the divinely inspired fresco floating above you.

Few places so perfectly combine great views, great architecture, great history, and great scenery as well as the Griffith Observatory, all while being within easy reach of the city. For anyone looking to have a Hollywood wedding, why not choose the Griffith Observatory?
