Eclectic Charm Wedding at The Valley Relics Museum
Em and Scott share a love for the weird, arcane, out-there personality of their city, Los Angeles, which is why they were so excited to celebrate their special day at The Valley Relics Museum – a space that’s as eclectic and charming as they are! Fun Fact: Scott works at JPL and Em is in Human Resources. Aka he literally only deals with rocket issues and she only deals with human issues. Luckily for a day they were able to leave their work issues at work, grab their look-alike piñatas and get married!

It’s a warm, sunny October day in Los Angeles and we’re heading to The Valley Relics Museum. Get ready for all the bright colors, neon signs, and fun relics. With a tinge of midcentury-modern flair, this invitation suite by Gilded Swan Paperie is poppin’!
The warm and textured florals by Flower Duet brought back those mellow yellow vibes from the 1960s and were a warm and organic contrast to the cool metal and bright neon of the venue.
Em and Scott shared their first look outside of the museum with some very special guests – their wedding party and their look-alike piñatas.
Em was walked down the aisle by her mother, Mary.
Talk about a party! There were arcade games! There were tacos! There was a churro truck! There was a LOT of dancing! Diamond dancing to be specific. It’s a thing, and it’s amazing! The Valley Relics Museum is chock full of Los Angeles history from floor to ceiling to enjoy. If you want a boring wedding venue, this ISN’T the place for you!
The Valley Relics Museum was a hit from the moment the couple walked in for a tour. In fact, after seeing this venue, there was no question that this would be where they wed. It is unique, weird, and wonderful! Anything But Gray Events definitely love the non-traditional, and this venue, full of neon and relics from the San Fernando Valley’s epic past definitely fits the bill. Arcade games, nostalgia, and lots of colors. This ain’t your average wedding banquet hall!
With a full flip, this space began as the ceremony site and then was later converted to the dinner reception. Rentals from La Pinata Party Rentals outfitting the space with industrial metal chairs, kitschy A-frame wood tables, and pops of teal in the runners and napkins.
The menu was all about paying homage. Homage to LA for its amazing tacos and street food and to ‘Skip’s Salsa’. Soho Tacos incorporated the bride’s late father’s infamous salsa recipe as a way to have him be a part of this very special day too! Guests couldn’t get enough of it! For dessert, who could resist hot and freshly made churros and Café de Olla from Churro Boss!

My face and feet are still hurt from your wedding. My face because I couldn’t stop smiling and my feet because your dance floor was on fire! Thank you for letting me share your special day with you. After planning a wedding for more than two years through a pandemic, I feel like you two can survive anything together with your mix of laughter, smarts, and creative candor! You two are the bee’s knees in my book!
