Southern California Romance

Grace & Ryan

Their Story

Grace and Ryan’s story is one of Southern California romance. Looking for the perfect a romantic wedding venue for them, they found it at the Ebell. They took full advantage of every feature of our multi-faceted campus from the patio walkway for the sweetest first look, to their ceremony in the lounge and art salon and cocktails in the garden. They ended the evening with dinner and dancing in the dining area.

Romantic Wedding Venue: Shaken, Not Stirred

Like many couples, Grace & Ryan were drawn to the Ebell as a romantic wedding venue surrounded by old Hollywood architecture and style. As such they took advantage of our cuisine and mixology. Their signature drinks were perfect for any couple who loves the  style of old Hollywood —  The Old Fashioned and His Girl Friday. You may have heard of an Old Fashioned, but His Girl Friday is a cocktail that is special to us — a retro mix of gin, grapefruit, basil syrup and Aperol.

As for Ryan’s perfect dipping style, it’s no secret why the couple wanted a romantic wedding venue! After several perfect swoon-worthy dips during the evening, Ryan and Grace gave us the perfect final look in front of a projection immortalizing their wedding day. We are so glad these two found The Ebell — their romantic event venue!

First look! Sweet emotions as Ryan sees Grace for the first time in her wedding dress. The patio walkway in the garden lends itself well to this tradition of Southern California romance.

It’s hard to beat the romance of an autumn special event. The days are shorter, the leaves are brighter, and there’s a distinct dose of magic in the air as holiday season ramps up.

Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays within this season, a time when we celebrate being able to make so many dreams come true at the Ebell of LA! 

Happy Thanksgiving, and thank you for making some of the most important memories of your life with us.

Not all dances at The Ebell are first dances, or even wedding dances. The Ebell's lounge was used (and still is) by our community for a variety of performances. This image always makes us smile. What dance do you think she is performing? ...

A first dance as husband and wife, but by far the last. Congratulations!

Are you having a fall wedding or event? We've got five tips for you on the blog (link in bio) to make it fall-tastic! 
🍁
Tip Two: Have fun with foliage.
🍂
Fall is a great time to think outside the box for your flowers. Consider incorporating elements like seasonal leaves and branches, along with berries and fruits like pomegranates, apples, and pumpkins. 
🎃
This gorgeous centerpiece has all the fall fire, and we are all about those miniature pumpkin placecards!
