A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

Set on 74 beautifully landscaped acres in the historic Griffith Park area near Disney and Warner Bros. studios, Calamigos Los Angeles brings a little country to the big city.

When you host your wedding here, you have a choice of garden ceremony sites, each with its own reception venue. The Cottage, a quaint house nestled on five acres of lush grass, features a treelined ceremony garden with a water-wall—a truly romantic setting. With an interior designed for today’s bride, it serves as her spacious dressing room or bridal suite. From here, it’s just a short stroll to The Polo Room for the reception. Filled with natural light, it boasts a grand bar, chandeliers, and a wall of French doors that open to a large cocktail patio.

The Grand Prix Garden offers a more intimate ceremony spot, with its own water-wall as well as tropical palms, wild bougainvillea, and a mountain view. The attached cocktail breezeway leads guests into the vintage-inspired Grand Prix Ballroom, where three striking, floating-prism chandeliers capture everyone’s attention.

A third option is the lovely Equestrian Ceremony Garden. This cozy courtyard has a rock waterfall and is enclosed by colorful bougainvillea- and ivy-covered walls, shaded by a retractable canvas “ceiling”, and aglow with market lights overhead. A wall of floor-to-ceiling sliding glass panels connects the garden to the Equestrian Ballroom, providing a wonderful California Living-style indoor/outdoor flow. The ballroom, a sophisticated space highlighted by bronzed iron chandeliers and a built-in bar, also comes with a wraparound breezeway with cabanas where guests can mingle over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

Planning a rehearsal dinner or intimate wine tasting event? The Little Barn is the perfect place! This fresh venue has a warm, rustic-chic ambiance thanks to custom wood tables, wine-barrel tables and bars, and chandeliers hanging from the rafters.

Calamigos is a well-known, family-owned and operated company with a collective of operations in Southern California. They’re dedicated to creating an amazing experience for you and your guests, so go ahead and relax while they expertly handle your entire celebration!
