Wedged among modern skyscrapers, the Los Angeles Central Library is a testament to the city’s history and is one of the best LA wedding venue. Found in the core of downtown, it is a respite from the urban hustle while still being near many of Los Angeles’ hippest areas.
Along with other prominent buildings like the City Hall and the less prominent but still beautiful historic structures that color the cityscape, the Los Angeles Library is a vestige of a different era. It was constructed two years before the City Hall, which at the time was LA’s tallest building at just over four hundred fifty feet. Now it’s hardly noticeable in the city’s skyline.
Likewise, the prominence of the library in the broader cityscape has been covered up by the surrounding high rises. But when you’re on the ground, it’s impossible not to be struck by its stunning exterior.
The library was influenced as much by Egyptian architecture as it was by contemporary architectural trends. The façade is a sandy beige with simple yet striking geometric patterns. There is also a large courtyard, a quiet haven for the best LA wedding ceremonies.
The collection of books is astounding. An explorer of the library will easily get lost, either metaphorically in the verbal immensity that the shelves hold, or literally in search for a book that is on one of its eight floors and eighty nine miles of shelving. On one perch on the top floor, you are given an expansive view of the library as the stairs descend to the bottom
The central hall would be the perfect place for a quick wedding ceremony. What it lacks in books it makes up for in sheer architectural beauty. The walls are covered in murals portraying pivotal moments in Los Angeles’ past. The lofty ceiling is sketched with weaving geometric designs, influenced by both the Arabic and European Renaissances. The Los Angeles Central Library is truly one of the best LA wedding locations, great for a small impromptu ceremony.
