The Paramour Mansion aka Canfield-Moreno Estate
I recently had the opportunity to tour the fantastical Paramour Estate! It is perched at the top of a hill on Micheltorena St. in Silverlake, California. It has one of the most incredible views I have ever seen in Los Angeles and to my luck, it was a super clear day when I toured. I got a sense of how grand this magical estate was as soon as I pulled up to the front gates. I would enthusiastically title this Los Angeles Wedding and Event venue the coolest/ weirdest/ funkiest/ most grand venue I've had the pleasure to visit. I immediately wanted to get married all over again.
The grounds are absolutely beautiful with a sprawling lawn, lots of trees, a pool, and an incredible view! The inside of the estate is full of surprises. It has a Gothic feel, and it is painted and decorated with moody jewel tones throughout. It has a large purple ballroom with gold chandeliers and you might bump into a few large taxidermy animals throughout.
UPDATE: I planned a wedding at the Paramour Estate since writing this post. Head over to Alexia + Ben's gallery to see their beautiful wedding!
So, if you're looking for an incredibly cool venue with history, a unique style, and perhaps a little Gothic edge, this could be the perfect Los Angeles wedding venue for you! You can plan your ceremony on the lush lawn, cocktail hour around the beautiful pool, dinner on the lawn surrounded by trees, a dance party in the ballroom, and desserts and coffee in the den! The Paramour Estate is not a wedding machine and it does not want to be. They are selective about the events they allow and the venue rental comes with a price tag. Trust me though, you have never seen a place quite like this! I'll be waiting for the call to plan and design your wedding at the Paramour Estate!
UPDATE: I planned a wedding at the Paramour Estate August of 2017. Head over to Alexia + Ben's gallery to see more!
