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.
Walking down Olvera Street, you’re greeted with colors and smells. In the vendor kiosks you’ll find all sorts of trinkets, ranging from Mexican flags to specialty candies. If you follow your nose you’ll be dragged inside the beautiful buildings to the sides and find tacos, burritos, or maybe some sugar-coated churros.
The location of Olvera Street couldn’t be better. Right across the street from the historic Union Station, Olvera Street is in the hub of the city. A couple blocks to the north is Philippe’s, a century-old establishment known for its French dip sandwiches. Walk a couple more blocks and you’re in the center of Chinatown, with some of Los Angeles’ hippest restaurants. Olvera Street is just north of Downtown, there is a further array of restaurants and attractions nearby. Best LA wedding minister
