A higher love: Say I do with a view at OUE Skyspace LA
Your wedding venue sets the tone for one of the biggest events in your life. And that’s truly what your wedding is: an event. A life-altering, heart-warming roof-raising event to commemorate your marriage. At OUE Skyspace, Los Angeles’ premiere wedding venue, you are starting with a blank canvas of elegant minimalism that can be attuned to your own style. In the past, wedding venues are traditionally looked upon as where only the reception is going to happen, but for many LGBTQ+ couples, the ceremony and reception take place in the same venue. OUE Skyspace is well-suited to host both your ceremony and reception with its gorgeous views, in-house furniture and female-led catering team.
At nearly 1,0000 feet above the city, OUE Skyspace LA is a rooftop wedding venue that overlooks Los Angeles, California, the creative capital of the world. Boasting up to 45 miles of visibility and two open-air terraces, OUE Skyspace is the best way to see Los Angeles. Located on the 70th floor of the iconic U.S. Bank Tower, the stunning event space delivers an unparalleled vantage point from above. Floor-to-ceiling windows invite guests to lose themselves in immersive views of the City of Angels.
Planning your Los Angeles wedding has never been easier when you book OUE Skyspace. The LGBTQ+ inclusive wedding venue offers turnkey event planning with such amenities as completely personalized service; immersive interactive experience entrance; available inventory of furniture including gold metro cocktail tables with clear glass tops and white resin folding chairs; projectors, microphones and DJ-ready sound system; state-of-the-art audio, visual and internet capabilities; valet parking; and a curated list of preferred vendors. Bonus: With so much already in the venue’s inventory, that means less items for you to pay other vendors to bring in.
As the highest event space on the West Coast, Skyspace provides unobstructed 360-degree views of historic downtown Los Angeles, the San Gabriel mountains, the Pacific Ocean, the iconic Hollywood sign, the Dodger stadium, making for an inspiring and sensational backdrop for a wedding.
MAKE IT YOUR OWN
One of the top wedding trends for 2020 weddings is making sure your wedding is telling your own love story. OUE Skyspace LA makes sharing your individuality as a couple—and as individuals—so effortless with its bright open space.
The one-of-a-kind venue is customizable for your wedding, allowing for you to infuse your personality into your big day, whatever that means for you. Maybe you want blooms hanging from the ceiling or vintage loungers staged throughout. Whether it’s a modern look of sleek black-and-white furniture and decor accented with leafy greenery and classic white floral blooms or perhaps a boho chic vibe with geometrical accents and woven fabrics, couples are able to create their own aesthetic at the flexible wedding venue.
The event planning staff at OUE Skyspace works with couples to help them create their own wedding style, asking discovery type questions that helps the marriers bring their love story to life.
Mingle with wedding guests while celebrating your “I dos,” creating unforgettable moments and stunning photos. And trust us, this space is a photographer’s dream with the soft lighting and the incredible views. Make sure to pose for photos in front of the pair of angel wings created by artist Colette Miller. They’re painted directly on the glass, so it’ll look like you’re spreading your wings over the city. (There will probably be a line of guests waiting to make their new profile pic here.)
And of course, beautiful scenery isn’t all you’ll find at OUE Skyspace LA. In addition to being the highest event space, it might also be one of the most fun with its unique Skyslide, a 45-foot, fully enclosed, all-glass adventure landing on the exterior of the iconic U.S. Bank Tower. Your guests will have a blast as they ride nearly 1,000 feet above Downtown L.A. to experience the city from an entirely new perspective.
In fact, the whole space is designed as an immersive experience, and you can bring that idea into your wedding too. On the 54th floor, explore interactive exhibits on the culture, community and people that make Los Angeles unique. Peer down an elevator shaft covered in mirrors, sing along to some of the best songs about Los Angeles, and hear stories from some of the many celebrities who call L.A. home.
WINE & DINE
OUE Skyspace LA will have your guests oohing and aahing with delectable drinks and dishes. The breathtaking views in every direction pair beautifully with a signature Skyspace cocktail, a glass of California wine, or beer from a local brewery.
Led by the hospitality artisans who handle some of the world’s finest venues, OUE Skyspace is dedicated to providing guests with a culinary experience at the height of excellence. The venue’s top chefs are experts on the latest food trends as well as classic cuisine. One of Executive Chef Gilda Giddens’ favorite styles is farm-to-table cooking. Whatever your taste buds are calling for, the culinary artisans at OUE Skyspace LA can bring it to life.
OUE Skyspace LA is also available for other events, including engagement parties and proposals. We recently featured an epic lesbian wedding proposal held at the iconic venue that celebrates all love. Neesy had Kristina’s mom bring her to OUE Skyspace LA under the guise of some family fun. We love how all the employees got in on the surprise proposal by stalling Kristina at every turn on her way up to the 70th floor. By the time Kristina reached her destination—the rooftop terrace which was covered in roses—Neesy was waiting for her. She proposed at sunset amidst family and friends cheering. You can read more of Neesy’s proposal to Kristina here. OUE Skyspace LA’s expert staff will work with you on customizing a proposal package.
Los Angeles is an incredibly LGBTQ+ friendly city with amazing weather, which makes it a great choice for a destination wedding, and OUE Skyspace is a great choice for your wedding venue. LAX, the city’s airport, is less than 20 miles from OUE Skyspace. And, of course, there’s valet parking!
OUE Skyspace LA is located in the U.S. Bank Tower at 633 West 5th Street – Los Angeles, CA 90071. OUE Skyspace LA can accommodate up to 300 guests standing and 120 to 150 seated.
