This Tuesday, Kerry of de Luxe Weddings & Events and I had the privilege to attend a venue tour of a property in Los Angeles, CA. And let me tell you- I fell in love!
I absolutely love old buildings, ones with lots of character and history: this former Archdiocese Cathedral was built in 1876, complete with Baroque inspired interiors. Check!
This venue was designed using a neutral color palette, so that all the colors and elements chosen in your design and decor will truly pop. A style and desinger’s ultimate playground. Check!
Vibiana’s choir loft is a photographer’s dream because it allows us to capture those bird’s eye view, scene setting photographs without having to climb up a tree or into another hotel guest’s balcony. (Although Rob will do those things for the shot though- If that’s what it takes.) Check!
Vibiana’s carefully placed lighting fixtures throughout the Main Hall and the garden area makes adding up lighting or colored lighting a breeze for your DJ or event design team. Check!
As an added bonus, Vibiana provides a bridal lounge and a groom’s lounge for the bride and groom to get ready along with their bridal party. Yes, the groom’s lounge has a flat screen TV. The on premises day of accomodations are a huge plus because everyone can spend the day together and get ready all in one place instead of rushing around town. This is also a treat for us because we can easily move from room to room capturing photos of all the getting ready activities.
If you decide to do a First Look, we have a few romantic spots in mind already 🙂 There are also several modern and also historic buildings located within walking distance if you would like to do a mini bridal shoot before the ceremony.
This is truly a hidden gem in downtown Los Angeles. I purposely chose to include just a few photos because although Vibiana photographs beautifully, an in person visit will truly allow you to experience all of its granduer.
If you are still searching for an amazing venue, take an afternoon and go check it out. And as they say at Vibiana: “Experience the Divine.”
I owe a big thank you to Anika for giving Kerry and I a first class tour of Vibiana!
