Vibiana has always been one of my favorite event venues. From the moment you walk in you know it is a special place and it definitely has that “WOW” factor. I was honored to be asked to design and style an inspirational shoot at this iconic venue in Downtown Los Angeles and I had so much fun coming up with the concept, color palette, and design elements. I worked along side a dream team of vendors who all helped make the end result truly lovely! I even had the opportunity to work with my little sister who modeled as our bride. Isn’t she gorgeous?! I am so thrilled to have had this shoot featured on Green Wedding Shoes – one of my favorite wedding blogs!
Vibiana is a gorgeous cathedral located in the historic area of Downtown Los Angeles. Built in the late 1800s, the cathedral was originally used by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese and was the official cathedral of Los Angeles for more than 100 years. In more recent years the building has become a sought after event venue specializing luxury weddings, special events, and performances.
With its high ceilings, abundance of Carrera marble, and breathtaking altars, we felt Vibiana was the perfect backdrop/venue for this glamorous winter styled shoot. We chose a color palette of bright jewel tones mixed with metallic and moody accents to contrast Vibiana’s bright and clean interior. Traditional décor elements mixed with modern pieces made for interesting contrast in this historic setting. The outdoor walkway outside the bridal suite is a beautiful location for portraits with the Los Angeles sky line as a backdrop. There are so many lovely nooks for unique photos. Some of our favorites are the staircase, the gold dome, and the confessionals. Below are a few of my favorite photos from this shoot. I hope you enjoy them!
