The University of Southern California – better known to the world as USC – is a great LA wedding venue. As one of the world’s top universities, USC has been calling the brightest minds for over a century.

All across the campus, you can find red brick buildings highlighted with gold highlights.

As a Long Beach wedding minister, I have gotten to know the city well. One of my favorite Long Beach wedding venues is the calm and secluded Rancho Los Alamitos The Rancho was built in the early 19th century during the late Spanish rule of the area. At one time, the Rancho was given authority over nearly all of Long Beach, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, Garden Grove, and Stanton. Today, the Rancho is confined to a humble hill in the center of a quiet Long Beach neighborhood, reminding visitors of simpler times. The original ranch house still stands today, enveloped by tree-lined courtyards and lush gardens. The gardens are a memory of what once was ample in the Los Angeles basin. Standing apart from the ostentatious gardens cultivated by the Los Angeles elite of the early 20th century, the Rancho Los Alamitos Gardens display a more authentic natural scene of CLICK HERE to read More By Clicking Here. . .
