The first thing that the bride and groom to be and I talk about is the location of their dream wedding. Sometimes couples may feel overwhelmed because they are unsure of where to start, what location will match their theme, guest limits, available dates, etc. Without having the support and direction of a wedding planner, some couples spend many weekends driving in search of their ideal wedding location. To give you some inspiration, I've come up with my top five most divine locations in the Southern California area: Terranea Resort, Vibiana, Shutters on the Beach, Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa, and Chateau de Beverly Hills
Some of these are hidden gems, while some are well known. I've been involved with many successful events at each location and highly recommend them.
Catalina Point - Situated on the bluff of the beautiful Palos Verdes coastline, Catalina Point is the premier ceremony location in Southern California, where only the bride, groom and the ocean come between the guests and Catalina Island. Seats up to 300 guests.
Ocean Lawn - Framed by spectacular views of the Point Fermin coastline, few moments are as dramatic as the entrance of a bride at an Ocean Lawn ceremony. Seats up to 500 guests.
The Meadows - Extending from the Grand Ballroom, the Meadows offers an unparalleled venue for grand elegance, California-style. With the sky and ocean bathed in warm oranges, pinks and reds by the setting sun, and the Point Vicente lighthouse just across the cove, weddings on this spacious lawn are unforgettable. Seats up to 1,000 guests.
