Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Model T wedding theme

Hey everyone, so I'm engaged to be married! Currently were looking for a venue that is every bit as historical as the model that I will bringing to it. Does anyone who lives in Southern California reccomend such a place. We're looking for rustic, historical, with trees and possibly an older building to fit the theme. Any place where I can park the Model T to fit in with theme of the wedding. Thank you in advance!

It was built before the Model T, but existed all through the T area. It was originally wired by Thomas Edison. Where? Hotel Del Coronado in Coronado California across the bay from San Diego. It is also on the Pacific Ocean.

I think we are trying to keep within the Los Angeles area. But that is definitely a great spot! Just need to consider a lot of friends and family driving distances.


And thank you Chris!

As I recall, there are old looking buildings in Solvang, anyone know if there are any venues there that would work for him?

Derrick-
Congratulations! If I remember correctly, your fiancÚ is a cute babe that actually works with you on your car. She's a keeper!

I can't give you any venue suggestions, but when I got married 21 years ago, I was president of the Rose City Model T Club in Portland. We were doing our tour planning for the year and I told them we couldn't do a tour on July 1 because it was going to be my wedding day. Jack Shea, bless his heart, said, "We'll have a tour and end at the church." So they did! There were Model Ts all up and down the street. We have some video of receiving line and in the back ground you can hear Model Ts driving by.

Here is my beautiful bride and me 21 years ago:





Keep us up to date with your plans.

: ^ )

Keith

I don't know how big a wedding you are planning, or what your budget might be, but there's the Wilshire Ebell Facility which is period correct and they do event rentals. ebellla.org
You might bug them, as the theatre had (has?) a real Theatre Pipe organ which would do the wedding march EXCELLENTLY. (Think the wedding scene in Sound of Music).

Not sure what the neighborhood is like now, been over 15 years since I was through there, but a picture in your T in from of the house used in Big Business would be pretty neat: 10281 Dunleer Drive, Cheviot Hills, Los Angeles.

For the reception, the Roosevelt Hotel would also be period correct. Also read somewhere that you could rent space at the Egyptian Theatre - which is spectacular since the restoration. Beautiful courtyard area.

Congratulations on your engagement Derick

I should just completely switch up to a Laurel and Hardy Themed wedding shouldn't I? They shot in many various places over La. Hrm thats something to think about. Thanks for suggestion Ron. As far as Roosevelt Hotel, the parking and traffic of getting into Hollywood would drive the guests crazy. But I like the way you think. Maybe an historical hotel would be a good alternative.


Thank you Gary =) Much appreciated.

Delivering a bride in a wedding ceremony on the ocean beaches this weekend in my 1915 rust bucket. (Washington State)

That is the car she picked out of the "stable"!

Derrick - not sure the lady would appreciate a L&H theme for the entire wedding, but a post ceremony picture in front of that house would be pretty neat. Best wishes!!

Congratulations Derrick P! An understanding and supportive bride, along with a hobby that promotes a connection to heritage, past, and future? Hopefully you are on the right road for a long and wonderful life!
