Southern California Wedding Venues

Southern California is such a great place for weddings because there’s such a variety to choose from! From breathtaking mountain views, sunny beaches, romantic gardens, and luxurious historic architecture, Los Angeles and Orange County offer some of the most iconic wedding venues in the world! It can be a challenge to decide on which venue is the best for your wedding.

As a photographer, I’ve had the opportunity to work at a variety of wedding venues throughout SoCal and here I’ve compiled a few of my favorite locations to help you as you search for the perfect place to host your big day.
