Before you can pick your dress, order your invites, or pop the questions to your ‘maids, the wedding venue is priority #1. So if you’re getting hitched in the greater Los Angeles area (or just appreciate a bit of pre-planning/pinning), you won’t want to miss the latest “It” event space. Located in the Highland Park neighborhood, Ruby Street is an early-1900s church turned modern wedding locale. Not only is this spot bursting with color, but it’s full of trendy decor and vignettes for the most Insta-worthy photos EVER.

It all started when Lourdes Hernandez and her husband Zach Leigh (she’s a Spanish musician and he’s an LA native who restores architecturally significant properties) bought the old Ruby Street church with the intention of turning it into a music venue. After one live show, everyone started asking about renting the space for their big day. Before they knew it, the couple had a hot wedding spot on their hands.

Original elements (like those wooden floors!) were preserved during the revamp to honor the building’s history, and then tons of bright, unique elements were added to the mix for a mod flair.

The historic building has an open layout, but is broken down into smaller spaces to create intimate moments for you and your wedding guests. Each nook and cranny is specifically thought out to make you feel like you’re in a space tailored just for you. And yes, there is plenty of outdoor space to enjoy that So-Cal sunshine.

For more glimpses of your future wedding venue (wink, wink), check out the Ruby Street gallery and swoon away!
