Los Angeles Wedding Reception:
On your wedding day, you get to be the writer, director and star of your own romantic movie. So whether you want the blue waves of the Pacific crashing in the background or the posh "90210" zip code stamped on your invitations, Los Angeles wedding reception venues can make your close-up unforgettable.
At the Malibu West Beach Club, say your I Do's on the patio overlooking the ocean and then celebrate with dinner and dancing inside the two-story clubhouse, or venture further along the coast to the Malibu Beach Preserve and tie the knot on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Wrap it up with a dinner around the fireplace at the nearby lodge.
If a wedding at sea is what your first mate wants, then FantaSea Yachts or Electra Cruises have a fleet of luxurious yachts ready to sail you and your guests out of a nearby marina. In Santa Monica, the stately Casa Del Mar hotel or Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel offer elegant ballroom spaces with views of the beach and the Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica Pier.
For real star wattage, Los Angeles' most famous zip code includes the famed pink Beverly Hills Hotel, where Raquel Welch was discovered and the original Rat Pack used to party. Ask about their art-deco-themed Crystal Ballroom, which has baby grand pianos and a terrace with a white wedding gazebo. Over at The London West Hollywood hotel, you can enjoy rooftop views of Hollywood and haute cuisine by "Hell's Kitchen"'s own Chef Gordon Ramsay.
Another stunning Los Angeles wedding reception venue is the sleek new Walt Disney Concert Hall, with its third-floor garden patio, private skylit founder's room and cuisine by award-winning restaurant Patina. For waterfalls, flowers and a Japanese garden-like setting, the Kyoto Grand Hotel and Gardens downtown is the perfect downtown oasis.
If marble staircases and minarets are your passion, Pasadena's Castle Green offers history and elegance. The ballroom of the seven-story Moorish and Spanish landmark can accommodate 425 people and the hotel has been seen in such films as ‘The Last Samurai' and ‘Thank You for Smoking.'
