From a thriving nightlife scene packed with world-class entertainment to the laid-back beach town vibes of Southern California, the atmospheric diversity of the Los Angeles region is astounding. With five counties representing the Greater LA area, each neighboring region boasts its own natural charm and unique set of attractions that will surely make for an unforgettable wedding experience.
Along the southern stretch of coastal cities, you will find that the surrounding landscape offers a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean reminiscent of a beachgoer's paradise. Warm sand and gorgeous sunsets render this area a casual elegance that showcases nature’s beauty at its finest. Head inland and you’ll transition into an urban blend of trendy boutiques, entertainment hotspots, and cultural attractions that reflect a modern, fast-paced lifestyle charged with energy.
Given such a wide spectrum of environments, it’s no wonder that the Los Angeles region is a popular choice for wedding venues. Engaged couples will have an opportunity to select the perfect location that embodies their desired atmosphere, making their wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions in Los Angeles all the more special.
Beach houses or banquet halls with an ocean view set a remarkably romantic feel for the happy couple, as well as a tranquil tone for the guests as they admire serene waters glistening in the distance. Weddings held aboard a cruise ship or yacht takes the oceanfront experience to the next level—your guests will attend the ceremony and reception in style as they cruise alongside panoramic Pacific Ocean views. If you enjoy the city scene, consider hosting your wedding at one of Los Angeles’s premier entertainment venues. Depending on the venue, you may find yourself just minutes away from major entertainment studios, boutique hotels, and the famed Hollywood hills. Many event centers offer a spectacular skyline view, creating a sophisticated atmosphere illuminated by the bright lights of Los Angeles. Note that some venues require both the wedding ceremony and reception to be held indoors.
While guests are in the Los Angeles region, this is a great opportunity to recommend popular attractions such as Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park, and the Urban Light exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
