There’s no better place to feel like a star at your wedding than in LA.

The City of Angels. La La Land. Southland. No matter what you call Los Angeles, this California city stands out on the map. Home to Hollywood filmmaking, “California cuisine” and 841 museums and art galleries, there’s no doubt about it: 18 million Angelenos can’t be wrong. Having a destination wedding in California’s most populated city—or even just coming here for your honeymoon—is a great way to have a glamorous beginning.

Fortunately, marrying in the Golden State isn’t hard. You don’t even have to be a resident of Los Angeles County to hold your nuptials here. The hard part is deciding which one of its fantastic venues is for you. Read on to learn why.


Skirball Cultural Center

Deemed to be “One of the world’s most dynamic Jewish cultural institutions,” this center, set in the Santa Monica Mountains, is part museum, part art gallery, part theatre and part literary salon. Built by famous architect Moshe Safdie, there are plenty of places on this site’s 15 acres for your event.

They can accommodate as little as 15 (especially in its Ruby Gallery) to as many as 2,000 guests (ideal for its Ahmanson Ballroom). You’ll be hard pressed to not find what you need at this contemporary Los Angeles institution.
