Wedding Venues in Southern California

As a harpist who has performed in weddings throughout Orange County and Los Angeles County for over twenty years, I am often asked by clients what are my favorite venues, and why do I like them.  I thought I would list some of my favorite venues below and state why I like them:

Orange County:

Tivoli Terrace and Tivoli Too!  in Laguna Beach:  These venues are beautifully decorated, close to the ocean, and have friendly, helpful staffs.  Tivoli Terrace in particular has a beautiful upstairs chapel, with twinking lights and rustic, lovely decor that enhances their events.  They also offer catering right on site, so once your guests are there, they don't have to move to another location for a reception.  Tivoli Too! is also a great venue, staffed by the same great people with a beautiful environment, including a waterfall at the wedding altar.  This same compnay owns and operates The Hacienda in Santa Ana, which is another beautifully decorated venue with great food and service, and again offering the option of ceremony and reception in the same location.

Los Angeles:

My absolute favorite venue in Los Angeles for weddings is the Wayfarers Chapel in Ranch Palos Verdes.  With its glass walls, which makes the beauty of the surroundings completely visible, Lloyd Wright, the son of the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, designed this structure as a "tree chapel", so that nature could be brought in to the structure.  The strucutre is acoustically sound for great music-making.  Book well in advance for this chapel, which seats no more than about 80 people.
