@sunshine1475:  How big is your wedding? We are having our reception at a small place in East Village SD that has lovely exposed brick walls, wood beam ceilings, a somewhat open kitchen framed by ornate wooden doors and a very small outdoor area. But it’s definitely for more intimate weddings. I believe max capacity is 60 people.

  • Wedding: October 2013 - The Down Town Club, Philadelphia

My best friend got married at Randee St. Nicholas Studio on La Brea Avenue. 
It’s a large photography studio with a courtyard for a ceremony (or at least that’s what we used it for). I can’t find the contact info by googling. I’ll keep searching.

No idea what the rental cost is but you could look into Carondelet House (www.carondelethouse.com) by downtown.

@sunshine1475:  I also loved the Marvimon, but we couldn’t afford it.  Fortunately, we found the perfect spot for us – The Rococo Room in Pasadena!  My husband was totally looking for exposed brick too, and there’s definitely a loft feeling, very high ceilings with wooden beams (it used to be a wood mill years and years ago) and a skylight, funky chandeliers and artwork, and an option to actually rent a loft space upstairs that overlooks the floor (we put the photo booth there and made it a lougne space).  There’s not really a garden area, but it’s in the middle of beautiful Old Town Pasadena, so we took our pictures in the alley outside behind the venue where there were trees, greenery and EVEN MORE exposed brick!  haha

It feels like a very intimate space, but it will hold up to 150 people.

The coolest part is that they don’t charge a rental fee, it’s just a minimum that you have to spend on food and drinks.  Our wedding was during lunchtime on Saturday, so that made the minimum even cheaper – I believe we just had to spend a minimum of $2,500.  I think the dinner minimum is something like $4,000.  And food was amazing considering the price!  Everyone raved about it afterwards, and our herb-crusted filet mignon with fresh veggies and garlic mashed potatoes (along with salad, dessert and soft drinks) was about $40 per person – and that’s the most expensive option!  Lunch options actually start at about $26.  I surveyed so many places where they had a rental fee and the starting price for a basic meal was about $75 per person.  This was totally a breath of fresh air!

Plus, we loved the rustic and intimate ambiance, it felt like us, and it’s exactly what we wanted!  I was really happy with it.  🙂

@sunshine1475:  here are some pics from our wedding!  I think it’s got a similar funky Marvimon-esque vibe to it. 

I tossed by bouquet from the loft!  haha




And although there’s no courtyard, we took our pictures in the alley before the reception where there’s some shrubbery and a lot of brick!


Hope this helps!
