About Us

“Imagine a Vegas wedding chapel but not cheesy, not cookie cutter, made stylish by me and operated by a staff of romantics and you get Albertson Wedding Chapel.” Daniel Franco.  TIME OUT magazine, 2016
Albertson Wedding Chapel performs simple modern weddings

LEGACY

The Albertson Wedding Chapel is celebrating it’s 43rd year of being the most highly recommended Wedding Chapel in Los Angeles.
It is the original and still the best wedding chapel in Los Angeles. How are we the best? We combine style, sincerity, ease and true affordability to make an extraordinary wedding day for our clients. Rev. Alex Franco was the original founder of The Albertson Wedding Chapel 42 years ago, and his goal was simple and beautiful. He wanted to make marriage easier, cheaper and less scary, so young people wouldn’t feel so scared of making the leap to what Rev. Franco called life’s great calling…”Finding & Loving Your Soulmate”.

By creating The Albertson Wedding Chapel he gave “Angelenos” an alternative to the tacky Vegas wedding chapels or the dreary, sad weddings at the L.A. county clerk’s office. Along with Jerry Brown in the late 1970’s Rev. Alex Franco helped institute and popularize the “confidential marriage license” still used today allowing couples “living together” to marry without a blood test streamlining the L.A. marriage process. He single- handedly performed an incredible amount of wedding ceremonies over the decades, all with dignity, warmth and respect. At Albertson Wedding Chapel, we still perform every wedding with those same ethos in mind. Were your parents married here? Ask them. If you were born in L.A., the odds are good that Rev. Franco performed your parents’ wedding.

NEW ERA

Daniel Franco is the son of Rev. Alex Franco, the founder of Albertson Chapel and is now the CEO  of Albertson Chapel. Daniel Franco was raised on weddings and had witnessed thousands of weddings  before the age of 16. You may know him as a fashion designer featured on Project Runway Season 1 & 2 and Project Runway All Stars, 2016.

What does Love and marriage mean for Angelenos in  the 21st century? The core is the same as it ever was. It is still about “Finding & Loving Your Soulmate” no matter your background, no matter your orientation, no matter if you are rich or poor. We want to help you take your love to that next level…to take a “maybe” to a “yes”…from an “I promise” to “a vow”. Love is real and Love is here to stay just like the “Albertson Wedding Chapel”. Cheers to 40 more years in L.A.!

Albertson Chapel moved to a NEW location on trendy La Brea Ave. We were on Wilshire near La Brea Ave for over 40 years. But Metro is constructing a new purple line subway station at our old spot on Wilshire and La Brea. We are happy to say we designed and opened our brand new, gorgeous, deluxe Albertson Wedding Chapel just ONE block away. We are on La Brea Ave, ONE block south of Wilshire. It is the most stylish wedding chapel in the U.S.! Visit us today at 834 South La Brea Avenue Los Angeles, California 90036. Free Parking in front lot.
