440 Elm offers a beautiful creative canvas for luxury weddings. Our historic grand ballroom is one the largest non-hotel ballrooms in the Los Angeles/ Orange County area. Our outdoor Plaza offers the option of having a beautiful ceremony outside. We focus on providing a platform to create highly personalized weddings that are beautifully presented and executed. We offer a range of elements to get you started on a creative journey with ample support:
440 Elm is a newly renovated historical space designed to enable a number of different experiences that you can incorporate into your wedding vision. We have a rare combination of private indoor and outdoor spaces for larger groups in an urban setting
We've focused on putting together a list of people who are excellent at what they do but may complement each other with different areas of expertise, different areas of focus, and different creative perspectives. We hope this enables both creative conversations and an ability to accommodate weddings with different specialty needs, including awareness of cultural requirements, specific cuisines, and deep relationships with relevant wedding services.
We have a historic church facility that is open to people of all faiths, beliefs, orientations, and traditions.
Our location in downtown Long Beach is a wonderful place for a wedding, with plentiful hotel rooms, beautiful oceanfront views, great restaurants, a world-class aquarium, lots of cultural activities, and plenty of parks. Our Long Beach location is convenient to clients coming from Los Angeles and Orange County and provides a convenient central location for those with guests across Southern California. We are near 3 major airports: Long Beach, Los Angeles (LAX), and John Wayne/ Orange County (SNA).
440 Elm offers the glamour and grandeur that couples traditionally seek in a historic wedding venue. Our 30' ceilings, tall arches, coffered ceilings, and hand-carved organ grate provide the sense of being in a ballroom set up for a well dressed crowd. The beautiful stained glass, bronze chandeliers, and distinctive capitals on the top of our columns also showcase the beauty of the work of the artisans of that era.
