Inn of the Seventh Ray | Great LA Wedding Venues

North of Malibu in the mountains of Topanga is the Inn of the Seventh Ray, a great restaurant and a great LA wedding venue. Shortly past the turnoff for the Getty Villa on Pacific Coast Highway, turn to follow the sinuous Topanga Canyon Boulevard as it weaves through the mountains, leaving behind the affluent suburbs of Malibu and melting into wilderness. Then, after a few miles, homes and stores will begin to appear among the trees. Among them is the Inn of the Seventh Ray.

The Inn grows out of the forest – it’s cloaked from the main road by a veil of trees and lush vegetation surrounds the dining area. Sparse chaparral canopies of leaves hover above the tables, providing an abundance of shade from the often unrelenting LA sun. Much of the patio floo is covered with simple brick and rock, giving it a rustic and romantic feel.

Santa Barbara Courthouse | Best Santa Barbara Wedding Minister

As a Santa Barbara wedding minister, I’ve been all around the county at the city’s most beautiful wedding venues. But my favorite still is the Santa Barbara Courthouse. Just off of Santa Barbara’s highly walkable State Street, with its Spanish-style architecture and its preponderance of unique little shops and restaurants, is the magnificently designed Courthouse. Someone once called it the most beautiful place in American where you can be sentenced to death. But while capital punishment is currently on a moratorium in California, you can experience the flipside of that coin by getting married there.

Bel-Air Bay Club | Top Pacific Palisades Wedding Minister

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.

The Vineyards | Best Ventura Wedding Venues

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.

Diamond Bar Center | Best Los Angeles Wedding Venues

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.

Hilltop Park – Wedding Officiant Long Beach CA

As a wedding officiant Long Beach CA, I have taken part in numerous ceremonies at Hilltop Park. You don’t truly realize the height of Signal Hill until you’re at the top. From ground level, it seems like a minor bump in Long Beach’s otherwise level terrain. But at Hilltop Park, you’re greeted with breathtaking views of the entirety of Los Angeles County.

To the south the Long Beach skyline soars above the rest of the city. Farther in the distance to the north the astonishing high-rises of Downtown Los Angeles declare themselves the heart of California. On clear days the completely unobstructed mountains display themselves in all their glory with snow-covered faces or verdant visages depending on the time of year.
