Los Angeles Event Venue: Vibiana

Locations We Love!

By David E. Merrell

Vibiana is a stunning wedding, events and performing arts venue located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles.

Originally the City’s first Archdiocese Catholic Cathedral, Vibiana has been beautifully transformed into a full-service event facility. It was AOO Event’s first time working in the Los Angeles event venue, and we had chosen the site for a corporate awards show for an audience of 200.

While much of the architecture of a cathedral exists – which is what makes this space so unique — everything has been brought up to date. We were happy to learn that Vibiana offers a state-of-the-art lighting and sound system, high-quality, custom rental equipment, a seasoned and talented event management staff, and an extensive dining and craft beverages program.

Our clients enjoyed a brief but restful cocktail hour on the outdoor patio before heading a sit-down dinner inside the main hall. There are many ways to use the space and for this event, we chose to put the band on the large altar area at the top of the central marble staircase.

During dinner, the band was seen in silhouette against the candles on the altar which was quite dramatic. For the awards ceremony, we lit the front of the stairs and for dancing afterward, we lit the band as well.

Our new floral division, AOO Floral, provided three different stunning floral design looks that were highlighted with pinspots.

And we provided our custom furniture such as this bar from our Geo collection.

We found Vibiana a joy to work in, and a very flexible space. As we are now a preferred vendor, I’m looking forward to going to church a lot more!
