New Year, New Venues

It’s always exciting when a new year starts. It seems that optimism is in the air, people are excited and ready to go on new ventures in their lives.

I’ve spend the last few weeks looking at venues and finding locations off the beaten path for my clients. I am always excited when I find places that are not your traditional wedding hall that are the perfect match for my clients. Today was one of those fabulous days.

I went with a client to Marvimon ( which is a fabulous location near downtown. Originally built by an Italian race car driver as one of LA’s first automobile showrooms is now an amazing loft, that has a Chicgo-style feel to it with exposed beams, red brick walls, show-off kitchen and a garage-like door that swings open to a oh-so-awesome court yard that is just the perfect size for a ceremony.

Under the same ownership is The SmogShoppe ( which is yet another fabulous place that was once a smog-check center that is now 100% solar-powered indoor/outdoor venue surrounded by desert plants, vintage furniture and amazing little areas with decor, book collections, paintings and more.

As an event planner, I always hope that my client will walk into a space I show them and be in love.  When my client walked in, her face lit up and I knew she found the perfect place for their wedding.

If you are looking for a space for a big elaborate wedding, this is not the place for you. This is an intimate space for 100 guests or so. It is a perfect space for couples who are looking for an intimate wedding in a unique space that down plays all the glits and glamour of most posh hotels and venues.
