Hotel Casa Del Mar Weddings
If you are looking for the most perfect 5 Star beach hotel for your upcoming vows, look no further than the exquisite wedding and event property, Casa Del Mar. Located on the world-famous Santa Monica boardwalk, it’s a stone's throw away from the shimmering Pacific Ocean, a short walk to Venice Beach, Main Street, and the 3rd Street Promenade. “Casa” is all about romance and splendor, with a healthy dose of Southern California surfer vibes combined. Built in 1926, it is an enchanting representation of the best of upscale Los Angeles hotels. Their stunning Italian Renaissance facade is a lovely complement to their sleek and refined ballrooms with crisp and modern interiors. The hotel towers overlook the bustling Santa Monica beach and endless bike path. You’ll enjoy watching as the surfers carry their long boards and paddle off into the sunset. It is the perfect wedding weekend experience for you, your family, and your guests.

One of the most special moments for our clients on their wedding day is the "getting ready" portion. If timeless shots of your besties and bridesmaids helping you into your gorgeous wedding dress are what you desire, then ample space to spread out and excellent window light is essential. At Casa, you can choose between the airy baby blue tinted corner suites overlooking the water, or go all-in on the spectacular two-story Presidential Penthouse which is truly like no other in the city. With views for miles and the soft breeze whispering through the windows, it sets the tone for a romance and luxury filled wedding day experience. The bridal party often makes its way over to the Terrazza Bar, which also boasts 180’ views of the sea. The tapas menu is unbeatable. Anybody up for a Jalapeno Margarita?
As with everything at this hotel, you also have a variety of choices for achieving your wedding ceremony vision. Casa Del Mar Hotel delivers in every way. You can choose to get married down the Grand Staircase into the spacious and picturesque Colonnade Ballroom. It is always a great choice during the cooler months or just because you prefer to have your intimate ceremony indoors. Or, if your dream is exchanging vows directly on the sand, Casa can get you there with its custom beach ceremonies. Your arch or chuppah sits perfectly in the sand and your guests will feel transported into a private beach of their own. And, as a third option, you can reserve the pool deck at Casa Del Mar’s neighboring sister hotel, Shutters on the Beach. A Shutter’s pool deck ceremony can provide a dramatic direct view of the water, a soft ocean breeze, and a spectacular sunset, but in your own private beachfront setting.
After the ceremony, guests need only walk a few steps to get their drink and snack on. As delicious hors d'oeuvres and cocktails are served from the mouth watering Casa del Mar kitchen, the Colonnade Ballroom is quickly transformed into a wedding reception fairytale by your wedding planner and Casa's award winning event team. As the lights dim, the music will play as you dine and dance late into the night. Whether you choose a professional DJ from Casa’s list of exclusive preferred vendors or one of your favorite local wedding bands, the dance floor at Casa is famous for dance till you drop parties all night long.
In addition to all of its 5-star amenities, a wedding at Casa Del Mar is the perfect venue for Los Angeles destination weddings. The hotel's proximity to popular Los Angeles tourist spots provides wedding and event guests with an incredible opportunity to experience Southern California beach culture. Guests from near and far will be able to take advantage of all of the famous local sights of the most popular beach destinations like the Santa Monica Pier, Venice Boardwalk, Muscle Beach, and Malibu Pier, all located within walking or biking distance. Rest assured, you will be thrilled to experience and take pleasure in the laid back vibe that Santa Monica and Casa Del Mar are famous for.
