Lovebirds looking to tie the knot can now experience the pompous features of celebrity Hollywood weddings at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. 

The 7,000 square feet of event space will now include wedding add-ons. Options include exiting in a horse-drawn carriage (inspired by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle), a burger bar with the couple's initials toasted into the bun (Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook), and a massive flower wall that will prove to be the “most Instagrammable” backdrop (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West). 

“Anyone who knows Studio City knows that it's 'Old Hollywood,' and actors such as John Wayne or Bette Davis would come to the Sportsmen's Lodge after filming their movies to grab a drink or to lounge by the historic Olympic-sized swimming pool," says Zee Bell Drury, director of catering, events and group sales at Sportsmen's Lodge. “It’s natural to take Old Hollywood or celebrity inspired wedding amenities and roll out lavish options that a couple can experience.” 

The addition is just one of many trends that Bell has pursued. Other Sportsmen’s Lodge wedding amenities include cotton candy bouquets and cereal or English biscuit stations.  

“I’ve noticed trends in terms of creative dessert stations in place of traditional cakes or in addition to a cake,” says Drury. “I think you can take any trend and make it into a station or a bar because people like to have fun with their food.” 

The amenities menu comes to a venue already filled with dignified wedding grandeur with a fireplace, outdoor tents with lighting and rustic surroundings.

But in the past few years, the island's new additions of meeting facilities and other accommodations have transformed the island from a popular vacation spot to a desirable meeting destination.

In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
