Classic + Clean Cathedral Meets Modern Romance in DTLA

vibrant winter wedding inspiration

All. White. Everything. For those who love starting with a clean canvas, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a venue that’s more pristine + fresh, historic + stunning, than the Vibiana. A wedding, events, and performing arts venue positioned in the historic core of Downtown Los Angeles, this beauty was originally used by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese and was the official cathedral of Los Angeles for more than 100 years! What an epic spot to state your vows, right?!

Race PR & Marketing united a talented group of artists, including designer + planner Star Hansen Events, for this glamorous shoot. The team was inspired by a color palette of bright jewel tones mixed with metallic + moody accents to contrast Vibiana’s (also featured in our Top 26 Coolest Places to Get Married) bright + clean interior. And we are LOVING how those modern elements pop against the classic marble steps + high arches. Ready to see the final product??

Jenny Quicksall Photography caught all the glamour – prepare to be wooed:
