Located just north of Downtown Los Angeles, Olvera Street is a great historic wedding venue. As the best LA wedding minister (I hope), I’ve officiated thousands of weddings and some wedding locations just stick in your mind. Olvera Street is one of those. Always bustling with activity, it’s a fantastic place to experience LA-Mexican culture and to celebrate your wedding day.
Olvera Street was the original settlement in what became Los Angeles. Although its days as the center of the Spanish and then Mexican colonial town are long past, it keeps the tradition alive with a jumble of activity. Mexican restaurants, street vendors, and souvenir shops line its promenade, and you can often catch events including live music at its central gazebo.
