Built in 1928, the Carondelet House, located about one mile west of downtown Los Angeles, offers an Italian-esque villa with urban surroundings.

Designed with rounded archways, brick walls, rich hardwood floors and high ceilings, the house offers a truly romantic atmosphere that soon-to-be-married couples have always envisioned.

The estimated Carondelet House wedding costs

The costs to rent out the Carondelet House, as with just any wedding venue, will greatly depend on the day of the week and the time of the year you want to reserve the space.  From our research, the costs, for both the reception and the ceremony, will range anywhere from $6,500 to $7,500.  This fee would cover eight hours, but additional hours, as per, can be purchased for an additional $500 per hour.  A refundable deposit of $1,500 is required to secure the space.

For couples who just want to use the venue for just the ceremony, the costs will be within the same price range.

The estimated fees will only include the rental costs, not the food and/or alcohol.  If you were to factor this into your budget, then the venue does ask for a $10,000 food and beverage minimum via their caterer, however, according to, couples are allowed to use an outside caterer if they paid the kitchen buyout fee of $5,000.  Any caterer who has not worked with this venue will be asked to be approved before working with the wedding.  The website notes couples should be prepared to spend $180 per person for a full bar, plated meal and all service fees.

Breaking down the costs
