Beverly Hills Wedding Filming Locations
‘Beverly Hills Wedding’ was filmed in July 2020. Filming took place entirely on-location in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica in California. Let’s take a look at specific details.
Beverly Hills, California
‘Beverly Hills Wedding’ was filmed at the historic and opulent Beverly Hills Hotel and Bungalows. The location, situated at 9641 Sunset Boulevard, has been a long-preferred spot for hosting Hollywood and its extensions for over a century. The hotel is the ultimate glamor-house that makes its guests feel like they’re celebrities walking on air. Exterior shots of the movie seem to have been filmed in the Polo Lounge and The Cabana Cafe, two of the hotel’s main outdoor spaces.
The Polo Lounge is famous for being the location for many fancy business deals in various movies, and the gorgeous, sun-drenched bungalows of the hotel are the pillars of reel-life romance. Some of the most popular movies that feature this legendary hotel as their backdrop are ‘California Suite’ (starring Jane Fonda, Michael Caine, and Maggie Smith), ‘Troop Beverly Hills,’ and ‘Rules Don’t Apply.’
A few exterior shots in ‘Beverly Hills Wedding’ also feature the hotel’s splendid gardens that extend to 12 acres of tropical growth and exotic flowers. The palm trees in LA further add to the overall atmosphere. Actor Milo Shandel posted an outdoor behind-the-scenes picture straight out of the wedding scene.
There are other exterior scenes that were filmed outside the confines of the hotel. These were presumably filmed in Rodeo Drive and other surrounding neighborhoods. Beverly Hills is known for its beautiful homes, shopping experiences that amount to paradise, and marvelous restaurants.
Santa Monica, California
A few scenes of ‘Beverly Hills Wedding’ were also filmed in the beachy city of Santa Monica. One of the specific and instantly identifiable locations where filming took place is the Santa Monica Pier. Some of the other movies to have filmed at the Pier include ‘Forrest Gump,’ ‘Iron Man,’ ‘My Sister’s Keeper,’ and ‘Pacific Rim Uprising.’
