Welcome back to the blog!
We want to take a moment this month to highlight some of California venues we love the most. Whether you are planning a wedding or just needing a quick internet daydreaming getaway, these jaw-dropping venues will have you inspired and rejuvenated in no time!
The Pelican Hill, Newport
Our first stop – The Pelican Hill Newport. Perched upon 504 acres of unrivaled coastal beauty, Pelican Hill is set apart as a world unto itself, offering a sanctuary of seclusion, a feast for the senses, and a retreat for family and friends. The feel of the place is a Mediterranean Essence, but with a California Twist.
This incredible venue only hosts one wedding per day, so you and your guests have exclusive use of the event facilities. The resort boasts Five Stars, with private Villas and Bungalows. Some of the attractions that also lend to the ambiance of the wedding day are the 36 hole golf course and the immediate access to Crystal Cove.
The Park Hyatt Aviara Resort and Spa, Carlsbad
Tucked away on 200 lush, private acres, the Park Hyatt Aviara resort is ideally located within easy reach of all San Diego’s best offerings. This venue has 78,000 square feet of event space and offers both indoor and outdoor wedding venue options. Holding your wedding at a part of a large chain like the Hyatt also allows you to earn bonus points that you can use toward your honeymoon at a mother location within the chain.
The Park Hyatt Aviara’s culinary philosophy takes its cue from Southern California’s bountiful produce. They serve local, seasonal ingredients bursting with natural flavor, paired harmoniously with perfect wine selections.
The Fairmont Miramar, Santa Monica
The iconic Moreton Bay fig tree at the Fairmont Miramar in Santa Monica is a historical monument, and it is one of the most highly sought-after wedding ceremony destinations in Southern California. The flow of your day transitions your guests into romantic ballrooms and even the Jones Library for the celebration. The award-winning culinary team FIG headed up by Executive Chef Jason Prendergast uses only the freshest ingredients, sourced from local farmers’ markets, which has earned us the reputation of having the best wedding banquet food.
The Fairmont Grand Del Mar, San Diego
Our tour of amazing California wedding venues moves from one Fairmont to another. This venue is not really a venue – it is an experience! Nestled within Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve and a mere five miles from the Pacific coastline, this storybook wedding destination offers dramatic vistas, romantic venues, elegant accommodations, and award-winning dining.
The resort overlooks a beautiful golf course and hosts only one wedding per day. One of the most unique features of this property is the on-site Chapel, which offers couples a true Church Wedding right on site. There is also a built-in stage to make featured toasts and performances at the reception that much more special.
We hope you were refreshed and rejuvenated by these beautiful venues!
