Pink Cloud 9's DIY-Friendly Wedding Venue Pick (April edition): Oviatt Penthouse

    Editor's Note:  As a part of a new monthly blog post series for Eventup, the DIY wedding pros at Pink Cloud 9 will be highlighting some of the easiest and coolest places to have an affordable wedding.

    The Oviatt Penthouse in DTLA! 

    Why it's special: One word: Rooftop. Two words: Historical Landmark. Three words: Downtown Los Angeles.

    Capacity: 120 packed in, but I think that just under 100 might feel the best.

    Your total budget: $15,000 - $30,000 for a Saturday night. $5,000 - $10,000 for a Thursday night.

    Catering: Included, provided by Truly Yours, who also provide all of your rentals and lighting.

    Things they don't provide: Florals, decor, DJ, photographer, videographer, wedding day coordinator.

    Sweet deal: The cost to do a wedding at most other rooftop venues in LA start at $30k... this place is a deal and they LOVE helping out DIY couples - no pretention here!

    What to watch out for: The neighborhood can be a little sketchy. No big deal for local Angelenos, or people used to big cities, but might be a little uncomfortable for out-of-town suburbia guests.

    How to rock it out: Red roses. Everywhere.
