For brides and grooms desiring an idyllic Southern California wedding that’s both relaxed and refined, Casa Del Mar showcases the ideal venue spaces for luxurious ceremonies and receptions. Located in Santa Monica, the stylish property on the sand was originally built in 1926 as an opulent beach club for Hollywood’s finest, and today it is beloved by guests, couples, and their wedding attendees.

Elegant Mediterranean-inspired décor will make even local couples feel as though they’re worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Sophisticated accommodations offer a home-away-from-home feeling with residential-inspired interiors with a calming seaside design, as well as luxurious amenities such as hydrothermal massage tubs, a personal reading library, and complimentary access to an Audi Q7 SUV house car. With 129 guest rooms, including seven suites and three multi-level penthouse suites reminiscent of Italian villas, the property offers plenty of room for couples to enjoy an extended stay or loved ones to enjoy the California sunshine following the celebration.

Pamper yourself prior to the wedding day at the Sea Wellness Spa, or enjoy the nearly year-round sun at the guest-only Palm Terrace Pool over the wedding weekend. Guests will enjoy dining at Terraza – a café with 180-degree views of the Pacific – or Catch, a sophisticated seafood restaurant showcasing seasonal, farmer’s market-driven fare. Adjacent to the historic Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade, brides, grooms, and their loved ones staying on property can enjoy shopping and dining in one of the most popular Southern California cities, as well as take in views of the sunset over the ocean at Palisades Park.

Couples desiring a beach wedding will love planning a ceremony on the sand with ocean views and the historic pier in the background. Following the vow exchange, host an opulent reception in the Colonnade Ballroom. The grand event space looks out to the sand and sea, and boasts plenty of natural light, Venetian glass chandeliers, and two-story high, sculpted ceilings. Brides can make their grand entrance down a staircase and join up to 350 guests for a seated dinner. A private patio located directly outside the ballroom is also available for guests to take in the fresh ocean breeze and enjoy a view of the sea between dining and dancing.

Invite friends and family to an after-party in the cabanas of the grand lobby, and bid farewell to loved ones at Catch, which seats up to 80 people, for a post-wedding brunch. And the fun won’t stop at the wedding! Join bridesmaids, groomsmen, friends, and family for surf lessons or beach yoga throughout your stay for a truly memorable wedding experience that is quintessentially California.
