About Cicada Restaurant Weddings

If you’re planning a black tie soiree that celebrates the Golden Age of Hollywood, Cicada Restaurant is the perfect place for your wedding.

Why Lin & Jirsa Loves Cicada Restaurant Weddings

Cicada Restaurant’s moody, romantic style will transport you to another time. We absolutely love this venue, from the decor to the staff and everything in between. Cicada Restaurant is smack dab in the middle of the exciting city of Los Angeles, which makes for some awesome shots outside! We really the love the creative space and the many ways it can be captured.

Wedding Ceremony at Cicada Restaurant

Sumptuous and palatial, this restaurant allows you to say your vows in a stylized, original way. A ceremony at this venue is a grand departure from the typical outdoor California ceremony with an indoor reception in a bland ballroom. To tie the knot under lalique glass chandeliers in an unrivaled historic location will be an experience neither you nor your wedding party and guests will ever forget. The staff will move tables and set up chairs in a theater-style setting so you can walk down the aisle. Cicada Restaurant is so opulent and wondrous that you won’t need more than a handful of bouquets to decorate the space.
