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.
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.
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?
