The request for the Special Permit must be made in person, with the type of candles, holding device, and floral arrangement, if used, to the Los Angeles Fire Department, Bureau of Fire Prevention.

  4. Only one centerpiece used for holding candles shall be approved per table unit regardless of the table size or shape.
  5. The use of multiple loose candles or candle holding devices is not permitted. If more than one candle or candle holding device are used on each table, those candles or candle holding devices shall be placed and secured on a common base. The amount of candles or candle holding devices placed on each table unit shall be limited to 4. The base shall be constructed of a noncombustible solid material.
  6. Candles in excess of 4 may be permitted for use on candelabras on a case-by case basis.

A BIG “THANK YOU” to Our Sponsors


?????Putting together the graduation presentation is a first challenge our wedding consultant students have to face. Each team uses its creativity to come up a design that would agree with all other teams. And yet, they have to research hundreds of wedding professionals whose works match their ideas and negotiate with them to sponsor their project. Through this project, our wedding consultant students will have a better idea of what the “real world” is like. They’ll learn to work independently and as a team. They practice budgeting, negotiating and their people skills.

We like to thank the following wedding professionals that sponsor our 2013 Vintage Glam Wedding presentation:
