Santa Monica and Malibu Wedding Venues

The Adamson House

Beach, Garden AND Spanish Casa? Can you ask for more? This place is breathtaking and will feel like the ultimate destination for guests coming from out of town.

Annenberg Community Beach House

This spot is the best of both worlds, truly. You get the modern clean lines in the architecture of the home AND you are right at the beach!

Bel Air Bay Club

This has gotta be one of the most gorgeous lawns in all of Los Angeles. Palm trees for days and a gorgeous ocean view.

Cypress Sea Cove

The gorgeous cypress trees at this venue makes it feel like you’re up in Carmel-By-The-Sea in NorCal!

Descanso Beach

I mean first of all, this spot is on Catalina Island, not in Santa Monica or Malibu, but I just had to include it in this beachy list! They’ve got a lawn with palms & an ocean view, but I’m almost as excited for those adorable beach cabanas!


Imagine a beachy ceremony with the Santa Monica Pier behind you. Sounds pretty great, no?

Malibu West Beach Club

Wow, I love when you can have an elevated view of the water. The gorgeous ceremony patio does just that and it’s easy to get onto the sand for some beautiful portraits too. Oh, and the reception space is all white and has amazing natural light!

Portofino Hotel

The perfect palm tree lined ceremony and a super luxe hotel lobby that just feels made for photos!

Shutters On The Beach

Honestly, this place is the quintessential beach wedding spot. You can have the ceremony on the sand or on the patio overlooking the water, but the grounds are so dang cute too!

The Surfrider

If you’re imagining a space with the smell of palo santo, lots of white linen and warm wooden accents, then The Surfrider Malibu is truly what you want. It just oozes the LA cool factor!

There you have it! The best Santa Monica and Malibu wedding venues. I hope you are feeling inspired & that you’ll reach out to us to capture this amazing day you’re planning!
