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. Their spacious lawns, overlooking the sea and the Santa Monica skyline, are the perfect locations to hold your wedding ceremony.

In sun-soaked Simi Valley, just after coming out of the San Fernando Valley, sits the Vineyards, one of the best Ventura wedding venues. For over thirty years the Vineyards has been operating as one of Southern California’s best wedding venues, and hundreds of couples have had their Los Angeles marriage ceremonies there. You can be the next. Stroll through its beautifully landscaped grounds, green with well-maintained foliage and yellow with the soft light of the sun. Fountains and archways are plentiful along the path that leads to the wedding altar, where seating enough for dozens can be arranged. Couples can choose between two beautiful outdoor wedding sites: the garden ceremony site, overflowing with deep green vegetation, and the water wall site, with an altar flanked by fountains and an abundance of open space so you can frame your wedding in the endless blue backdrop of the sky.

Although Diamond Bar isn’t usually thought of as a premier wedding destination, it has some of of the best Los Angeles wedding venues. The Diamond Bar Center is one of them. 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. Driving up the hills through the sparse chaparral foliage (and at the right time of year a poppy bloom!) the wilderness opens out in front of you as you reach the Diamond Bar Center. The venue has sweeping views of the valley and surrounding neighborhoods. Beautiful trees and desert plants decorate the campus of the events center and provide cool abundant shade for outdoor weddings. From the Diamond Bar Center, manifold trails begin wave through the hillsides and surrounding landscapes.

If you’re looking for a Long Beach marriage venue with with superb cuisine and a great atmosphere, Saint and Second has got you covered. Saint and Second, a massive two-story American eatery on the 2nd Street row of restaurants at the intersection of St Joseph Avenue, is at the heart of Long Beach’s gourmet food scene. The first thing anyone wants to know about a restaurant is its food. With so much competition on 2nd Street and the rest of Long Beach, Saint and Second still manages to stand out. They draw inspiration from around the world to craft hip and unique dishes that won’t stay on your plate for long before they’ve found a permanent resting place in your stomach. I’ve been there multiple times and never been disappointed by what I was served. But in addition to the food, what makes Saint and Second such a great venue CLICK HERE to read More By Clicking Here. . .
Can you get married at Disneyland? Yes! Many people don’t realize that they can get married at Disneyland until their wedding day has passed, but you can get married almost anywhere. Disneyland is one of the most popular Los Angeles and Orange County wedding venues for good reasons. The fun doesn’t stop once the ceremony is over; you can spend all day exploring the sprawling amusement park. Disneyland has been a popular amusement park and wedding venue since it opened in 1955. Since then, it has grown from a moderately sized park to a sprawling complex with six sister locations worldwide. The Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, however, will always be the original. In addition to the main resort, California Adventure provides another unique experience. Adjacent to the main park, California Adventure was established in 2001. Despite its novelty, many of the rides and attractions there have become just as iconic CLICK HERE to read More By Clicking Here. . .
As a Long Beach wedding minister, I have been to Bluff Park hundreds of times for marriage ceremonies and on leisurely walks. The grassy Bluff Park stretches along almost a mile of cliffside overlooking bright yellow sands and an azure ocean. The height of Bluff Park above the beach presents unobstructed panoramic views of the Southern California coast, stretching from the Palos Verdes Peninsula to Huntington Beach and beyond. At one end of Bluff Park sits the charming Long Beach Art Museum. Its signature dark brown wooden exterior makes the building itself a Long Beach landmark. But venturing inside and to the museum’s quaint courtyard greets you with its modest but stunning art collection. For a catered wedding reception, your wedding entourage can dine at Claire’s at the Museum. Heading in a different direction, Bluff Park leads to the Long Beach Pier. There, your guests can congregate at the Belmont CLICK HERE to read More By Clicking Here. . .
As an LA wedding officiant, I have been a part of civil ceremonies at every venue imaginable – large ballrooms, small restaurants, very public amusement parks, and intimate backyard hot tubs. But the Getty Center, with its sleek but stunning architecture and its massive collection of artwork, is one of the best and will surely enchant every wedding guest, not to mention the lucky couple. Sustained by the J. Paul Getty Trust, the Getty Center opened in 1997. The complex’s unique white facade is uniquely modern while still calling back to previous eras of human history. The Getty Center finds itself straddling two ridges on the outskirts of the city bordering the prosperous Bel Air neighborhood. Its prime location offers some of the best views in Los Angeles. In the foreground sit beautiful mansions, and in the distance high-rise buildings mixed among the unique neighborhoods that provide Los Angeles with CLICK HERE to read More By Clicking Here. . .
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. Those who aren’t lovers of the outdoors can step inside to the Huntington Library and Art Galleries, which hold priceless pieces CLICK HERE to read More By Clicking Here. . .
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. Within the Getty Villa’s Courtyard long courtyard stretches a decorative pool and a surrounding garden.
