We love wedding venues that are off the beaten path and if you are looking for the same, then you should consider checking out this hidden gem, the Inn of the Seventh Ray. Voted as the most romantic restaurant in Los Angeles for the past 20 years, an Inn of the Seventh Ray wedding in Topanga makes for a beautiful wedding location and you can have Three16 Photography capture your moment for a lifetime.
The Seventh Ray has this amazing running creek along with waterfalls and plenty of trees, all while set back into the canyon. There are multiple areas to consider for your wedding and reception. In some cases, they can accommodate up to 250 of your closest friends and family members depending on the location of your ceremony and reception.
They offer five really terrific options to hold your event in. They include:
The Fountain Patio
Enhanced by the banks of greenery, the Fountain Patio is located along the side of a creek and is enhanced with a garden fountain that makes for great architecture as a backdrop to your event and photos. Nearby is a gazebo that makes for a great wedding location as well.
The Waterfall Patio
Looking for a more private area then consider the Waterfall Patio. It overlooks the creek at the far area. The waterfall rolls down the hillside near all the greenery of its banks. The waterfall works its way down to a circular brick patio and makes for a beautiful garden setting. Beautiful backdrops for your wedding photos are amazing at this location.
The Creekside Patio
Probably their most popular location for the small to medium sized wedding ceremonies. It exudes romance and endless beauty. The Creekside Patio runs along two creeks and is simply amazing.
The Garden Room
Sitting next to the Fountain Patio lies the Garden Room. The Garden Room can be used as a stand-alone location or as an addition to another room. It has an amazing romantic fireplace and it offers an intimate atmosphere.
The Church Room
This location once served as a church and to this day still has its stained-glass windows up near the vaulted ceiling. It offers glass walls which makes for a beautiful area with all the green trees, gardens and foliage in the background.
When it comes to the cuisine, an Inn of the Seventh Ray wedding only allows for their own in-house catering. However, you are still in for a treat as they serve award-winning California cuisine that is market fresh from local organic places, as well as raised natural ingredients.
