If you want a Los Angeles wedding venue that's in the city but has a lovely vintage vibe - this is it.

SmogShoppe’s Los Angeles wedding venue has a spacious courtyard area that is a breath of fresh air the minute your guests arrive (literally). It’s an oasis within Los Angeles, surrounded by garden walls filled with over 2,000 sq ft of greenery. It's great for lots of wonderful wedding photography opportunities. And of course, the wedding ceremony.

When you're ready to step back inside for refreshments, mingling and good times, The Grand Hall area has soaring 15ft ceilings and is equipped with dimmable, LED lighting. Oversized wall panels featuring ferns and flowers, and a large projector screen for wedding images and wedding videos.
