Vibiana Wedding | Vibiana Los Angeles Wedding
Looking for a unique, history filled venue to exchange your vows? Located in Downtown Los Angeles, a Vibiana Wedding is an elegant Downtown Los Angeles way to celebrate your big day. The historic Vibiana is originally the Cathedral of St Vibiana, one of Los Angeles early cathedrals. Completed in 1876, the Cathedral of St. Vibiana is one of the oldest and most beautiful examples of architecture in the Italian Baroque style in Los Angeles. However, after the Northridge earthquake in 1994, the cathedral was considered to be unsalvageable and a new cathedral was built. Vibiana sat unused until 1999 when it was purchased and painstakingly rebuilt, structurally changed to withstand future earthquakes, the building was returned to its former glory, now a gathering place for numerous events, including lavish weddings. The Archdiocese of Los Angeles made the controversial move to relocate the main cathedral to a new site, Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. The old Cathedral of St Vibiana underwent major repairs and upgrades to become what is now known as the Vibiana.
The Vibiana wedding venue in Los Angeles retains all the splendor of the original building, with a massive marble and onyx altar, endless ceilings, sweeping arches, and an amazing main hall that can be transformed into just about anything you could dream up, fun and funky to upscale sophistication, lush green foliage to dramatic lighting and ultra-modern design. You can start with cocktails and canapés in the Foyer, under gold-plated ceilings or take a turn about the gardens where a tent can also be accommodated. Drape silk or chiffon swaths around the 45 foot baroque columns for added flair or just enjoy them in all of their bold beauty.
