Table of Contents

Los Angeles is California’s largest city, and one of the best when it comes to wedding and elopement venues. Within this list, I included large wedding venues that offer incredible views of Los Angeles, plenty of space for guests, and unique decor. I also made sure to include smaller wedding venues that are modern, chic, and customizable. Each of these wedding venues are unique and offers something different for each couple. Whether you elope or have a large wedding, you’ll definitely be able to find the perfect Los Angeles wedding venue for your special day.

*The max capacity numbers are for seated ceremonies and receptions. If you have a standing ceremony or reception, the max capacity will be higher.

*Some of the outdoor wedding venues have outdoor areas for the ceremony, but indoor options for a reception. Vice versa for indoor wedding venues as well.

Brianna Parks, a California elopement photographer.

Hey there, I'm Brianna!

I’m a California elopement photographer who had a big traditional wedding, and I can’t tell you how many arguments there were about my day.

I was pressured to pick a certain venue, certain colors, certain guests, and it felt like I was spending thousands of dollars to play host at a party that had nothing to do with the connection between my husband and I.

Don’t fall into the trap society has constructed around big weddings. Instead, buy the plane ticket, get the wedding dress  dirty, and turn your stressed out wedding day into a carefree, adventure filled elopement experience that you’ll remember for a lifetime.
