There are SO many great wedding venues in Southern California. No matter what style or vibe you’re going for, the perfect wedding venue for you is out there. Luckily for you, I have shot MANY weddings in Southern California, so I know of a lot of great venues. Here is a (growing) list of my favorite wedding venues in Southern California:
Los Angeles Wedding Venues
Valentine DTLA – Los Angeles, CA
Valentine DTLA is my FAVORITE wedding venue in Southern California. It is located in Downtown Los Angeles and is great for all wedding sizes because it has lots of room for lots of people, but can also be transformed into an intimate space for smaller weddings.
The ceremony space is fantastic. Guests sit in benches facing a beautiful wall covered in plants and foliage.
There is a beautiful mural painted on one of the walls in this space that gives you a GREAT background for photos if you wish to use it.
The reception space is great as well! Tons of room for tables and chairs, and the walls are also painted beautifully.
If you are having a large party, the ceremony space can be transformed into a dance floor for lots of dancing!
This wedding venue is located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, so there are tons of spots to take photos in a super close vicinity.

Inland Empire Wedding Venues
Gold Mountain Manor – Big Bear, CA
I love this wedding venue. Gold Mountain Manor is a great wedding venue in Southern California if you are looking for a rustic, mountain-esque, intimate vibe with lots of greenery and trees. It’s a great space for small to medium sized weddings!
The ceremony space faces a backdrop of tall trees and lots of greenery. There is a wooden arch backdrop you can decorate with florals if you want to as well!
There are getting ready spaces for both parties getting married, which is great! One is much larger than the other but Gold Mountain Manor is also a bed & breakfast, so there are several rooms available to use for getting ready purposes.
This wedding venue also has TONS of spots within the property for photos. Perfect for first looks and bridal party photos.
