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 Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens was founded by railroad magnate Henry Huntington in 1919. Today, after more than 100 years, the Huntington Gardens haven’t lost their charm. This Pasadena civil ceremony venue (actually located in the affluent suburb of San Marino) draws visitors from across the world for its diverse foliage and serene beauty.
The Botanical Gardens spread over 120 beautiful acres. It comprises multiple themed gardens, including Japanese, Chinese, Australian, California, desert, and many more. Walking between every garden, you feel like you are walking across countries and continents; it truly is hard to believe that every one of them is in the same sprawling complex. After tying the knot anywhere in the Huntington Gardens, you can spend endless hours exploring the boundless outdoor property.
Located above the sunny Pacific Coast, the Getty Villa is a spectacular Pacific Palisades wedding venue for any and every couple. Although thousands of miles away from Europe, the Getty Villa is reminiscent of an aristocratic European estate. Constructed in the 1950s by oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, the Getty Villa’s facade was modeled after the Greco-Roman architecture of the ancient world. On the inside is a museum dedicated to the civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome, featuring priceless artifacts and sculptures. Along with its sister museum (the Getty Center, located approximately five miles away), the Getty Villa holds innumerable cultural relics and works of art.
