About Vibiana

This beautiful building is a piece of Los Angeles history. Built in 1876, the Cathedral of St. Vibiana served as the main cathedral for all of Lost Angeles for more than 100 years. When the 1994 Northridge Earthquake devastated the building, it looked like the end for this lovely edifice. But when the church decided to rebuild a cathedral on another lot, the city of Los Angeles took ownership of the former cathedral. After renovations and restorations, it is now Vibiana, one of Los Angeles’ few remaining historic buildings, and one of the most sought-after event venues. And it can be the location for your unforgettable Vibiana wedding.
