The Richard Nixon Library
Rich with history, the Richard Nixon Library is a true Southern California landmark. Calling this location a beautiful wedding venue would be an understatement, mainly because guests are treated to nine acres, the largest rose garden in Orange County, and ballrooms dripping in crystal chandeliers. One couple loved that they were offered a bridal open house where they met potential vendors: "The Bridal Open House the RNLB hosted made it so easy for us to talk face-to-face with their preferred vendors... and trust me, their preferred vendors are worth it!." This location is especially a fan favorite of those having larger, more extravagant weddings. Read real brides' reviews here!

The Vineyards
If you can't decide whether you'd like an indoor or outdoor wedding, at The Vineyards you don't have to choose. Apart from being versatile, it provides brides and grooms with versatile packages to fit practically any budget. "The Vineyards helped create a meaningful and beautiful experience for us and all of our guests. And, it was amazingly affordable," shared a gushing bride. With views of the stars, mountains, and sunsets, there's no reason to doubt why this is such a highly rated venue. Read real brides' reviews here!

Ponte Winery and Ponte Vineyard Inn
Known as one of the greener venues in Southern California, Ponte Winery and Ponte Vineyard Inn pride themselves on their sustainable practices and rustic aesthetic. The venue's farm-fresh cuisine, impressive wine collection, and stargazing views, leave couples gushing over their services. "The venue is beautiful, the food and wine are awesome and everyone makes you feel like the most important people in the world." What else would anyone want on their big day?

Malibu West Beach Club
If you've ever dreamt of exchanging your vows over breathtaking ocean views, then you might want to take the Malibu West Beach Club into consideration. Ceremonies take place on an outdoor deck that stretches over white sand, while receptions take place inside a bright and airy space — both clean and minimalistic. Guests love having the freedom to decorate the space, one bride shared, "It comes ready with chandeliers, drapes and lighting all around, and all we really did was bring a little bit of pops of color."

La Venta Inn
Spanish architecture is very present across California, and La Venta Inn sticks exactly to these roots. A 1920s villa that features a fireplace, stone walls, and domed ceilings, La Venta provides guests and visitors with an intimate and romantic setting. The views of the Pacific Ocean and backdrop that La Venta has to offer have left many brides claiming it's "magical" and "the venue of their dreams". Read real brides' reviews here!
