Casa Karmina Weddings: Home
Beach house is perfect wedding venue
Casa Karmina is one of the few Venice Beach Houses right on the sand. It is a perfect spot for a wedding, and there are several choices for location (beach, garden, lanai/balcony overlooking the beach & ocean, or roof deck overlooking the beach & ocean). One of the great benefits at Casa Karmina is that your location can be adjusted at the last minute in accordance with weather conditions. It also is a splendid place to spend a honeymoon with its romantic fireplace, beautiful garden courtyard, ocean views, and hottub on the roof deck...

General fee stucture
There is a $500 wedding fee and a $500 party fee for your reception up to 20 people, with $25 per person over that amount, plus a $200 cleaning fee per area used, i.e. house and/or yard. The maximum fee/number of people can be negotiated. The party fee is waived if you are a guest at Casa Karmina for one week or more.
You need to be a resident at Casa Karmina for at least 3 nights in order to have the wedding or reception event here, preferably more (we don't have events for non-residents). See more info below on rates and scheduling.
We suggest that you use our local reverend, Rev. Stef
Flowers, music, photographer & reverend fee are extra, but if you are coming from out of town we can help you coordinate them if you agree to use the local vendors we prefer to work with. We can provide music, for both the ceremony and the party/reception. Please go to the "Music" page to hear two original songs by Karmina that we highly recommend for your wedding ceremony!
The wedding fee includes the location, set up, coordinating with our preferred local vendors on flowers, music or photographer, a wedding arch to stand under (flowers not included), and padded chairs. The gardens will be gorgeous, pruned and blooming! The party fee includes the location and use of the BBQ, as well as two tables on which to set your food. If both the wedding and the party are held at Casa Karmina, the chairs can be used for both and there will be a discount on the second fee.
A very important benefit to Casa Karmina's location is the fact that there is a parking lot just one short block away. Depending on both the day of the week and the time of year, it will cost between $4 to $12 per car. You may even be able to prepay for your guests if that is desired.
If you plan for the wedding to take place on the beach/sand, you may need to obtain a permit from the City of Los Angeles. See Links to Others page for more information.
