EAST ROOM
The East Room is a versatile event space with a modern layout. The rectangular main hall runs parallel to an open JennAir kitchen, with sleek design and top of the line appliances, a 65” TV and SONOS sound system. The room leads to a patio with up-close views of Vibiana. The East Room is a perfect place to host a spirited cocktail party, a daytime corporate meeting and post-meeting fete, or an immersive Chef’s Table dining experience. The East Room can accommodate 30 guests for a seated dinner and 70 guests for a standing cocktail reception.

CARDINAL’S QUARTERS
The Cardinal’s Quarters is our most historic room, as it is the renovated salon that once belonged to the Rectory’s former Cardinals. These private quarters breathe romance into the space, with a working fireplace, hand-carved detailing, and deep teal-hued walls. The Cardinal’s Quarters also features an en-suite restroom, a wide balcony, perched atop the Redbird Courtyard, with vistas of Vibiana and Downtown’s architectural backdrop enhancing the majestic quality of the space. The Cardinal’s Quarters can accommodate 44 seated, and 70 for a standing cocktail reception.

BISHOP’S PERCH
The Bishop’s Perch is the speakeasy of Redbird’s private dining spaces. This suite is on our top floor and sits above the rest of our private rooms. The Bishop’s Perch is the perfect spot for intimate celebrations—engagement parties, birthday or business dinners—of 20 or less. The Bishop’s Perch features modern décor in the square dining room, flanked by its own en-suite restroom and a cozy garden patio, where Vibiana’s belfry and the Financial District skyscrapers illuminate the evening sky. The Bishop’s Perch can accommodate 20 seated and 30 for a standing cocktail reception.

THE NEST
The Nest evokes the feeling of hosting guests in your own home. Upon entering, guests are greeted into an open JennAir kitchen, leading out onto our portico lounge and patio dining spaces. The Nest lives up to its name, giving guests a bird’s eye view of the entire Vibiana and Redbird compound, with the LA skyline as its backdrop. Its breathtaking urban views make The Nest a perfect fit for rehearsal dinners and intimate family receptions. The Nest also functions as an excellent space for corporate meetings and receptions, with a SONOS sound system and full audio/visual capabilities. The Nest can accommodate 36 seated, and 50 for a standing cocktail reception.

WEST ROOM
Our largest private dining space is found in The West Room. This spacious dining hall features high ceilings, with hand-painted original beams, a 65” TV, SONOS sound system and a petite balcony overlooking Redbird’s restaurant. Several table arrangements are available, based on your party’s size. The West Room can accommodate a seated dinner of 85 guests, and a standing cocktail reception of up to 150.

“From Ro and Co Events…Our Modern Gothic Romance design concept was heavily inspired by Lauryn of The Skinny Confidential. Combing The Skinny Confidential blog for design ideas and inspiration, we noticed a strong palette of black and white with soft hints of blush and lavender. We were especially influenced by the style of the condo Lauryn shares with her fiancé Michael, who happens to be our groom model for the shoot. It has a sleek, clean and modern aesthetic with bold artful statements throughout. Lauryn had mentioned that her own wedding would be deep and moody, the complete opposite of a traditional, sweet white wedding. Having seen the Goth trend all over the Fall 2016 runways, we knew it would be the perfect touch of badass needed to capture Lauryn’s style and create the high fashion editorial look we were envisioning. With that, our Modern Gothic Romance concept was born and absolutely came alive through the lens of Rebecca Yale Photography.

The gorgeous white marble interior space of Vibiana, formerly LA’s first Archdiocese Catholic Cathedral, was the perfect backdrop for a dramatic ceremony and dinner scene. The venue’s former confessional booths served the lounge space well.

Fashion stylist extraordinaire, Annie Cavallo, chose the most glamorous dramatic nude Inbal Dror gown with flowing train to grace the ceremony scene. To add a hint of rebel, we paired it with a daring, yet sweet Alice and Olivia leather jacket. We love the embroidered back detail!

A moody black Galia Lahav gown with plunging back and cape added high drama to the dinner scene. The playful white Inbal Dror dress would be the perfect choice for dancing the night away. Michael’s classy Tom Ford tux complemented Lauryn’s three dramatic looks beautifully. Suzie Moldavon nailed the modern goth look, first with a deep oxblood lip and sleek ponytail and then softening to a lighter mauve lip and sleek all down hair and finally creating a relaxed party look with a boho braid.

Emblem Flowers created romantic arrangements in the moodiest of hues. Deep tones of oxblood and plum were contrasted with mauve and dusty rose with hints of gold. The ceremony scene was overgrown with lush greenery and a dramatic statement piece in the altar’s alcove.

Vintage furniture from Found Rentals provided the perfect contrast with modern tabletop selections from Casa de Perrin. The dining scene was heightened with gorgeous marble and floral menus from Yonder Design.

Yonder Design’s dramatic invitation suite featured a pressed flower suspended in plexi and wrapped in leather and velvet. Additional details like The Mrs. Box velvet ring box and Silk and Willow linens added a luxe feel throughout.

On the menu, Superfine Bakery served up a collection of delightfully moody tiered cakes with hand created sugar flowers. Redbird’s pastry chef, Kasra Ajdari, whipped up delicious mini pistachio pavlovas and salted caramel and orange blossom mini donuts. Redbird’s bar director, Tobin Shea, created cocktails that fit the mood of the shoot.

This dramatic and moody interpretation of a wedding fit Lauryn and Michael’s personalities and brand to a T. We can’t wait to see how their real wedding comes alive!”
