Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows Weddings
If you are looking for a Santa Monica based wedding defined by fine elegance mixed with five star luxury add beachiness combined with a dash of Rock n' Roll, then the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows is your wedding location jam. Located on the bluffs of Santa Monica between the famous Santa Monica Pier and fancy pants Montana Ave, and overlooking the exquisite Pacific Ocean, the Fairmont SM is one of Los Angeles's most sought after wedding and event venues. It's scenic and spectacular from every angle and also a wedding photographer's dream location. Established in 1921, the Fairmont Miramar Hotel is a combination of high-end suites and bungalows, dazzling ocean views, gorgeous ballrooms and a ceremony lawn that is like no other in town. Next Exit Photography has been shooting weddings and special events at the Fairmont for almost 20 years and knows just about every photographic nook and cranny on property. And, we also know the surrounding areas outside the property to get the very best golden hour, pre-sunset shots of the Santa Monica Pier in the close distance.

You will find that this hotel has everything you might want and need out of a wedding venue. It has impeccably designed and spacious suites that are perfect for hanging out and getting ready with the bridal party before starting the big day. All of the ocean view rooms have gorgeous natural light that creates authentic wedding photographs and capturing them is a cinch for our experienced team. The high-end, hip and handsome rooms have also been designed with a touch of Los Angeles — Rock n’ Roll zeitgeist. You shouldn't be surprised to have a classically framed iconic photograph of song master Neil Young or a young Jim Morrison watching on as you sip Veuve Clicquot champagne with your besties before you put your wedding dress on. And, if you are thinking about where your partner is at this very moment, you might find them downstairs in the newly renovated modern Jones Library chilling with their crew. Oh, those picture perfect blue walls!
If you are looking for photogenic locations for your wedding day pictures, the Fairmont Miramar has an abundance. The gorgeous secluded bungalows and pool area behind the hotel is a perfect place to stage a “first look” and few great photographs before the ceremony while guests are taking their seats. The hotel's real star is the 100-year-old Moreton Bay Fig Tree that anchors the entire property in front of the hotel. Most couples choose to have their ceremony on the lawn facing the iconic tree as well as the informally formal posed family photographs.
Don't forget that one of the best features of the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows is its perfect proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Before you head off to your incredibly designed and professionally lit ballroom reception for your culinary feast prepared by the expert catering team, you can sneak off with your Next Exit team for a few sunset photos on the bluffs overlooking the beach. Palisades Park is oh so romantic. The twinkle light wrapped trees go for miles! Add in the sparkling water and the golden sunset light as your background… you may even have the pleasure of catching a dolphin or whale dancing by the shore. Wouldn’t that be the best wedding gift ever?
You will find that getting married at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel amounts to one of the best Los Angeles wedding experiences you can have in all of Southern California. And if it's the best Santa Monica Fairmont Miramar wedding photography you are after, then give us a call.
