I recommended these sites on another similar thread. The Korean Bell in San Pedro (you'll recall seeing it in The Usual Suspects); the cliffs in Palos Verdes (if you watched Six Feet Under, I think that's where Brenda and Nate's wedding took place); on the Queen Mary in Long Beach. I suppose Las Vegas is too obvious?

(You can find clips on youtube for the movies/TV shows I mentioned.)

Also, if Hollywood is your animal, I believe they conduct ceremonies at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

If you want Hollywood, call Hollywood Heritage and ask them about their event rentals. They used to handle Wattles Mansion (I think; not sure about current status) and they run the Barn, a property across from the Hollywood Bowl. Wattles is beautiful. The Hollywood Heritage people are pretty nice and might have some ideas for small Hollywood garden settings, too. There might be some private gardens that you could use. Bronson Canyon would be nice.

And I've never been there myself, but the Yamashiro in Hollywood looks like an amazing setting:

(love the cemetery idea, by the way! And the Korean Bell, while not Hollywood, would certainly fit the bill for amazing setting.)

They're no longer in Wattles Mansion.

Bronson Canyon is part of Griffith Park, btw.

The cemetary is a GREAT choice! One of L.A.'s true treasures, the closest thing L.A. has to Pere Lachaise in Paris.

Never been to Yamashiro. Seen it many times from the street.

Thanks everyone for the great suggestions! I really like Wattles Park and some of the others, I'll need to check them out in more detail. I really didn't think I'd find the right thing in L.A....so thank you so much!
