10 Orange County Wedding Venues with an Ocean View

Hey friends – Christa here to help you find gorgeous Orange County Wedding Venues with an ocean view!

Finding a wedding venue is HARD. Like so hard. Sometimes it is really difficult to tell online what it will look like in person, or the images give the wrong impression. Not to mention, there is a lot of pressure to book your venue so that you can set your date and start booking your other vendors. But don’t you worry! I’ve done the hard work for you and gathered 8 Orange County wedding venues with an ocean view!

Ole Hanson Beach Club

This wedding venue is literally steps from the ocean. Whether it is from the front lawn or on their rooftop patio there is a stellar ocean view.

The Ritz Carlton Laguna Beach

On top of the beautiful view of the ocean and shoreline, the Ritz Carlton is especially wonderful in that it has a ballroom for the reception and since it is also a hotel a place for you and your guests to stay!

The Historic Cottage

In Intimate historic wedding venue in south San Clemente. It has a beautiful view of the water from its patio and there is a convenient set of stairs to get down from the cliff to the water.

Pelican Hill Resort

Pelican Hill has a seriously epic view of the ocean and landscape! If you did want photos on the beach, it is a little bit of a drive and parking is tricky but it isn’t impossible. However, the grounds and building are lovely on their own and there are plenty of places to get amazing photos.

Casa Romantica

This venue not only has an awesome view of the ocean and San Clemente Pier, but it is a stunning historic building with the most beautiful architecture and landscaping!

Laguna Cliffs Marriott

The Inn at Laguna Beach

This venue has a beautiful view of the Laguna coast and it’s perfect for an intimate wedding!

The Montage Laguna Beach

Has a prestige that speaks for itself, but I will say that until some of these venues it has a great view for both the ceremony space and reception space!
