La Venta Inn Wedding

La Venta Inn Wedding

Couples love celebrating their wedding at La Venta Inn. This oceanfront historic site sits atop the bluffs of Rancho Palos Verdes. Enjoy panoramic views and the fresh ocean breeze while you and your groom exchange vows in the garden.

I always like to tell the bride to bring her wedding invitation. Makes a great backdrop for the ring photo.
Brides getting ready so much fun.
The groom wrote a sweet love note on the soles of the brides wedding shoes.

Palos Verdes Wedding

A Palos Verdes wedding is the perfect choice if you are looking for both a scenic and luxury venue. I love the beautiful ocean views, garden settings and more. Ceremony sites are set atop the bluffs of the peninsula. Located between Los Angeles and Long Beach near LAX. Hotel accommodations are nearby for you and your wedding guests making this location a great choice. The weather is mild all year round. The sunsets in Palos Verdes are some of the best I have seen in Southern California.

Palos Verdes Wedding venues

Luxury properties in Rancho Palos Verdes include Trump National Golf Club, La Venta Inn, Palos Verdes Golf Club, Terranea Resort, and Catalina View Gardens.

Wedding Ceremony

You can choose to have your ceremony and reception at the same venue. Or maybe you prefer an intimate ceremony in an Enchanting chapel like Wayfarers. Either way, you still get the same stunning scenic views. Including the Pacific Ocean and beautiful gardens. There are also a number of Churches nearby Palos Verdes venues if you prefer a more traditional setting.


Wedding receptions at venues like Trump National Golf Club and Terranea have unparallel ocean views and stunning ballrooms.  The finest in-house caterers to treat all your guests too.  These venues can accommodate small parties from 20 guests up to 400.
