A Place to Gather

Bringing people together to celebrate love, art and LA

A hidden gem in a historically protected artists’ neighborhood of Los Angeles, The Ruby Street, formerly a progressive church, keeps the tradition of bringing people together alive and well through weddings, private events, workshops, marketplaces, and more!

After discovering a Highland Park landmark with good bones and lots of potential, creative collaborators Lourdes and Zach set out to restore this chapel to its former glory and turn it into an inclusive, multi-use space, now known as the Ruby Street. Once finished, they got married in it and Lourdes continues to oversee the creative direction of this hidden gem!
