At the stroke of midnight, the bride and groom kiss, confetti bursts from the ceiling, and champagne glasses toast to an exciting year filled with love and happiness! Yes, this can happen on a normal wedding night, but it's extra special when it's on New Year's Eve in a big city such as Los Angeles. NYE is a very popular time to have a wedding, especially because there is so much excitement about the new year and the clock striking midnight. With so many incredible wedding vendors in the LA area to use for a wedding, it can be very overwhelming. So, we went ahead and did the research for you; below are our top picks for planning your New Year's Eve wedding in Los Angeles!
This gorgeous downtown LA venue was once a Catholic cathedral which has since been transformed into a full-service event facility. The high ceilings allow endless ways to get creative with lighting, and the dramatic architecture speaks volumes. The ambiance exudes romance with a luxurious feel, and the venue itself provides an incredible ambiance for your wedding, which is exactly what you want for a New Year's celebration. Vibiana not only makes a statement, but it has spaces for both a ceremony and reception, which is crucial for a wedding on December 31st — no one likes driving from point A to point B (especially on NYE) in LA, so the fact that you can have both in one spot is perfect and convenient for your guests!
