Voted Equally Wed’s 2021 Best LGBTQ+ Inclusive Venue!
The Ebell of Los Angeles is an architectural masterpiece that brings incomparable history, glamour, and elegance to each of its special events and weddings.
The Ebell is an ideal location for both traditional and unconventional wedding celebrations. Situated in the heart of Los Angeles, your guests will experience the best the city has to offer, including exceptional cuisine by their executive chef, hand crafted cocktails from their house mixologist and outstanding service from their warm, personal staff. This enchanting venue provides you with an endless variety of photographic settings.
The Ebell of Los Angeles allows you to customize your day – making it uniquely yours. Their dedicated Special Events team will make your wedding day a truly remarkable experience.
The Ebell of Los Angeles is a philanthropic organization founded by women, for women in 1894. The historic Clubhouse is designated an Official American Treasure and has hosted royalty, celebrity and dignitaries over the years including Amelia Earhart, Judy Garland and Michelle Obama.
Originally created for education, art and equality during a time of limited opportunities, the Ebell remains strong today. The club supports dozens of non-profits and scholarships, in addition to hosting special events, live music, dinners and community forums. The motto, “I will find a way, or make one” aligns with its core mission to encourage the educational, cultural and social growth of the diverse Los Angeles community.
Nestled in Long Beach, California, we are the premiere LGBTQIA wedding provider for the Los Angeles County and Orange County market. Gay-owned and -operated since 2000!
I started taking photos professionally in 2000 with the belief that photography should not have to cost an arm and a leg. Several of my friends were getting married at the time, and I was blown away by how much photographers were charging. I was equally surprised with the lack of service and quality they were providing. I made it my mission to start a business in which I could put the customers’ needs first. By keeping prices affordable while maintaining exceptional quality and customer service, I have grown my business over the years. From start to finish, David England Photography is a unique experience. I strive to capture lasting images for my clients in a fun, easy, and affordable way. I believe clients should have the right to own their own images. They should be able to share them with friends and family members as they see fit. Because no two events are the same, we approach each celebration with a fresh perspective. Through years of studying the craft of photography, I pride myself in the art of storytelling through photographs. I love what I do, and I‘ve surrounded myself with a team of photographers who share my passion. Knowing with each image I’m creating a masterpiece that can be passed down from generation to generation is food for my soul. My clients are an extension of my family, and when given the task of capturing important moments, I give myself to the craft, and I give my heart completely to the art of photography.

COLORFUL WEDDING PLANNING AND DESIGN FOR THE JOYOUSLY CREATIVE!
Hi! I’m Holly Gray. My pronouns are she/her/hers. With a background in theater, hospitality and culinary arts, I’ve reinvented what it means to be a wedding planner. And trust me, you don’t just want a planner, you want someone to direct the show so you can be center stage and enjoy the spotlight.
I’m a native Los Angeleno with a steady pulse of innovation, community, and kindness. And no, I will not be running around your wedding with a walkie talkie. If you see someone running, that means something unexpected has happened. #notmystyle. Let’s be real, one of my superpowers is to put out the fires way before they start, and am waiting with open arms and a can-do attitude (as well as bright pink lipstick) for the unexpected. The only time you’ll see me run is when there’s an ice cream truck in front of me or a serial killer behind me.
You live life to the fullest, so why put your wedding in a monotonous box just to line up with someone else’s idea of tradition?
I say, let’s toss out the traditions in lieu of a wedding that is totally you. Anything But Gray Events makes the ordinary extraordinary. I plan colorfully joyful weddings and events for creative clients. Whether it be Wedding Planning and Design or Wedding Management (3 months prior), I can take your wedding experience to the next level!
Anything But Gray Events proudly supports other local small businesses, the LGBTQ+ community and The Black Lives Matter movement. Everyone is welcome. My devotion to showcasing inclusivity, diversity, and love of all shapes, colors, and sizes is evident not only in my weddings and events but also in my vendor partners and associations. I am not only a Equally Wed LGBTQ+ inclusive and preferred vendor, but the Equally Wed Award Best LGBTQ+ Inclusive Wedding Planner/Coordinator Winner 2021.

Part photographer, part unlicensed therapist, part confidant. When you hire Brian and his team to photograph your destination wedding, you’re getting more than just consummate professionals, you’re getting travel, photography, and wedding specialists ready for anything your wedding (and your crazy friends) can throw their way. From wineries & mountains, to beaches & ballrooms, he’s shot it all, and if he hasn’t, it’s probably on his list.
Weddings are special and sacred moments. I know this to be true first-hand, as a married queer person and as a queer spiritual leader. It’s my mission and a true honor as a wedding officiant to pay that magic forward to other queer couples.
Each wedding ceremony should best reflect the couple at its center. I work with couples closely to co-create the wedding ceremony that fits who they are and uplifts and celebrates their values and beliefs. As an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister, I have the experience and knowledge to co-create wedding ceremonies that exist across the spectrum of religious to secular. I can offer spiritual and/or religious framing to a ceremony, but I also have flexibility and knowledge to lead ceremonies that are deep and meaningful and do not rely on religious words or framing. It’s part of my role to help couples create a ceremony that is fully and completely representative of you and your love for one another.
I’d love to work with you! I’m located in Los Angeles, CA, and I am willing to travel. Please be in touch to set up an initial conversation about your special day.
