La Venta Inn: Palos Verdes Estates
It was so much fun capturing these festive 4th of July photos at La Venta Inn in Rancho Palos Verdes! This historic venue turns 100 years old this year. Can you believe it? To celebrate, they’re hosting a number of fun community events. I had the privilege of capturing the 4th of July party.
La Venta Inn is a historical venue overlooking the ocean in Palos Verdes Estates. The Spanish style architecture, courtyard fountain, and gardens overlooking the ocean make this spot a unique venue for weddings and events. I loved how the team transformed the ballroom to reflect the patriotic theme of the event!
4th of July festivies!
Members of the Palos Verdes community joined together to celebrate the 4th of July with delicious food by Made by Meg catering, lawn games, and plenty of fun family activities. Guests sprawled on the lawn overlooking the peninsula and enjoyed the beautiful views and weather. Family, friends, laughter, and hot dogs on the grill? What could be better?
Nighttime activities at La Venta
As the sun went down for the evening, guests gathered inside in the ballroom. Everyone enjoyed more delicious drinks and snacks. There was a full bar, a french fry station, and even a popcorn station! For dessert, guests enjoyed ice cream with sprinkles. I don’t care where you come from, food is an integral part of the 4th of July and La Venta did not disappoint!
Later in the evening, guests enjoyed a spirited game of Bingo for prizes. It’s always fun to find activities and games that people of all ages can enjoy together. Some of the kids got pretty competitive about winning–and some of the adults did too!
