European Villa

Los Angeles



Nestled in the celebrity-filled neighborhood of Los Feliz, the Villa Sophia offers an eclectic Old Hollywood style venue for your big day. This beautiful mansion has been called “home” by many other illustrious figures, including American golfer Clement Smoot, British film director James Whale, and Polish conductor Artur Rodzinski. Today, it serves as a stunning Mediterranean backdrop for wedding days in Los Angeles! Imagine exchanging your vows in an exotic garden brimming with flourishing flowers, towering palms, and unique stone statues. The sparkling ceramic-tiled blue swimming pool is ideal for cocktail hour, featuring a stone patio, cascading fountains, flowering pots, and enchanting views of the Los Angeles skyline. A patio surrounded by lush green grass or the shaded private dining area is ideal for an intimate wedding dinner. Intertwining the Spanish mission and Spanish colonial styles with the features of a Tuscan Villa, saying your “I do’s” at the Villa Sophia is sure to be an unforgettable occasion.
