If you haven't already noticed, I'm a big fan of colorful and fun weddings that are full of personality. For all my like-minded friends out there, I've compiled a list of my favorite LA venues to throw a bold and bright wedding bash that will wow your guests and make your photos pop.
The Fig House
6433 N Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90042
Arguably the most quintessential example of a colorful wedding venue in all of Los Angeles, The Fig House is overflowing with bright colors, chic mid-century furniture, custom art, and geometric stained glass. This space is a rather unassuming royal blue building on the outside, but an incredibly decorated modern space on the inside. While this bold style will definitely drive any color palette decisions, their carefully-crafted aesthetic means the decorating is practically done for you.
Size: 15,000 Sq. Ft. Total
Capacity: Accommodates up to 250 seated guests or 450 standing/cocktail
Details: Indoor & Outdoor spaces available. Built-in bar. Furniture included in rentals. Getting ready spaces on site.
The Ruby Street
6408 Ruby St, Los Angeles, CA 90042
This impeccably restored 1890s arts and crafts style building has instant character as it welcomes you with its azure blue exterior and original stained glass windows. This idyllic former church is located in a historically protected neighborhood and surrounded by lemon trees. Inside, the space is decked with an eclectic mix of custom, vintage-inspired furniture and unique modern decor, all in vivid colors. The property also has a large outdoor space complete with outdoor bar.
Size: 4,000 Sq. Ft. Interior
Capacity: Accommodates up to 200 guests (175 indoors)
Details: Indoor & Outdoor spaces available. Outdoor bar. Getting ready spaces on site.
The Lodge at Malibou Lake
29033 Lake Vista Dr, Agoura Hills, CA 91301
The Lodge is a beautiful property across from Malibou Lake, in a small community nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains. Their expansive property has a vintage-meets-outdoorsy vibe and features several impeccably styled ‘ready rooms’, a massive front lawn area overlooking the lake, a large ballroom with a stunning bay window, a large covered porch, and a cool library bar. The property itself has loads of personality, but its main areas (the ballroom and lawn) are also the simplest in design, so there’s still room to customize the look.
Size: 2,460 Sq. Ft. Ballroom/4,457 Total Covered Guest Space/25,000 Sq. Ft. Outdoor Space
Rates: $3,300 - $6,700
Capacity: Accommodates up to 280 guests
Details: Indoor & Outdoor spaces available. Getting ready spaces on site. Furniture & Tableware included. On-site kitchen.
The York Manor
4908 York Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90042
When you think of colorful venues, The York Manor’s all-white interior may not be the first thing that comes to mind. Ironically, this crisp, clean white look is precisely why it works so well with bright party color palettes. Just about any color will work in this space. The black-and-white exterior has a fun, graphic look, and its bright-red double door entrance and lush greenery in both the front and back yards give just enough color without limiting your color choices, so anything goes!
Size: 4,000 Sq. Ft. Interior/10,000 Sq. Ft. Total
Rates: $4,500 - $6,500
Capacity: Accommodates up to 220 guests
Details: Indoor & Outdoor spaces available. Underground speakeasy can be added on. On-site kitchen.
The Maxwell House
55 S Grand Ave, Pasadena, CA 91105
The Maxwell House’s Italian-inspired architecture, warm pink entryway walls, and elaborate details make this space a 1920’s vintage dream castle. Originally built as a singular bungalow, the historic property features multiple large rooms (including a kitchen) and an open garden patio with string lighting. The best part? Bookings benefit the Western Justice Center, a non-profit working to address homophobia, racism, sexism, and other forms of hate.
Capacity: Accommodates up to 120 guests
Details: Indoor & Outdoor spaces available. Getting ready spaces on site. On-site kitchen. Bookings support the Western Justice Center.
