My fiancee and I are getting married, likely this winter. I will be moving to L.A. soon and we plan on having a ceremony with just the two of us. The only thing we plan on doing traditionally is the dress and tux. We are thinking a park setting, but if there's a historic old courthouse or something, we'd even do that. I don't know the area especially well, so I'm looking for suggestions for a park or a garden where we could hold our very quick, short and personal ceremony. Any ideas? Hollywood would be ideal, but we'll go further if needed.

Thanks!

You might want to check out Library Park in El Segundo. There are quite a few weddings, large and small, there throughout the year. You could have the ceremony in the gazebo. This isn't a great photo but . . .

I've seen lots of weddings at Averill Park in San Pedro, almost had mine there. Nice view of the harbor.

The beach was my first thought as well, but I don't know how private that would be (if that's a concern for you). If you could find an out-of-the-way cove somewhere, though, it could be nice.

Hollywood is really the City of Los Angeles, so it doesn't have its own separate court system. I can't think of any historic courthouses in LA. The one downtown is from the late 50's. Griffith Park might be the closest public park to Hollywood. I'd call the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and ask them for suggestions, they'd probably be the most informed. The Pasadena area might be a better source of garden-y locations. Keep in mind that if you plan on marrying outdoors in winter, you may face a deluge of rain that goes on for hours.

Not just Griffith Park, but also Wattles Garden Park (very popular for weddings) and Runyon Canyon also come to mind.
