Best Outdoor Venues

Malibu West Beach Club

Ocean calling your name? The Malibu West Beach Club is a gorgeous oceanfront outdoor and indoor perch, from which you and your guests can enjoy the fabulous ocean vista.

Make sure you prepare with the best Los Angeles wedding photographer to catch your magic moment. Throughout the evening, your guests can step outside to sip wine or champagne while watching the sun go down and stars appear.

Universal Studios Backlot

Want to transport your guests to another world? Take your wedding to an urban cityscape, Mexican courtyard, wild west, suburban neighborhood, or the cobblestone streets of Europe. Your guests will be amazed as they step foot onto the iconic film set of Back to the Future, or Jaws Lake. The possibilities are endless, as are you and your party’s fun.
