I'm having my ceremony in South Pasadena and we're looking for a place in downtown LA for the reception. The wedding will be in December 2011 so I’d prefer something inside, with lots of windows to see the downtown lights. Any ideas?

I don't know if its exactly what you're looking for, but we did our reception at Marvimon, which was fantastic.

If you want windows with a view of downtown, nothing beats the City Club on the 54th Floor of the Wells Fargo building.

we LOVED city club but its a tad out of our range...we have about 200 people coming...

On second thought, you might also like the Oviatt Penthouse with an OUTSIDE reception and nothing to block your view.

Thanks, I’ll check it out. Also, you’re photos are great. Loved the one at Holy Family – that’s where our ceremony will be. Feel free to email me pricing info too:

We did ours at Union Station. Was great but you have to bring in everything yourself:)

Kelly -
Union Station and Marvimon are great. Have you looked into Vibiana? That is an amazing venue! Also, the Concrete Lofts and the Cooper Design Center.
I work for an events company - feel free to email me and I can send you a full list of venues that I love :) (check out our website at
Thanks Kelly - I look forward to helping you and I hope you find exactly what you are looking for!! :)

Your wedding idea sounds absolutely fantastic!

I am a Fashion Designer, but I just had my wedding and fell in love with designing my own invitations, place cards and all of the paper products for the event, along with my dress and veil. I did a Modern Baroque style for my wedding.

I live and work out of Pasadena. Let me know if you need any help with that type of stuff. I'd love to do some custom designs for you and your fantastic city wedding!

The hotels in the area also have great reception venues such as the Bonaventure Hotel. In the LA area there is for ideas and help.
