Why We Like This Place
Cleverly designed in an octagonal shape with glass walls that showcase a panoramic view of the harbor, California Yacht Club is a great place for a waterside wedding.
Lovers of the sea will naturally want to get married as close to the ocean as possible, and the Club has a stellar site: a triangular expanse of lawn that advances from the building and tapers to a rounded point in front of the water’s edge. Couples exchange vows here, while their guests enjoy the sea air, glittering Pacific and the colorful parade of boats that pass by just beyond the point. After the ceremony, everyone strolls over to the adjacent patio for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
The Yacht Club itself is a handsome, two-story building that devotes its entire first floor to celebrations. Receptions take place in the spacious Fireside Room, named for its beautiful brick fireplace, which is set into a wall of windows. Before the dining begins, all eyes are on the bride, who makes a dramatic entrance as she gracefully descends a sweeping atrium staircase. The room’s decor is completely up to your imagination—anything from a Polynesian buffet with tiki torches, hula dancers and a fire show (held outdoors), to a formal Black & White Ball. No matter where you sit you’re virtually on the water, and the 180-degree view allows every guest to watch the sun set over the ocean.
For very large events, a custom-ordered tent can seat up to 270 beneath a 40-foot ceiling. This expansive space is a blank slate: hang swags of fabric, add colored gel lights, bring in a stage for a show or a ten-piece band. And no matter how you design the interior, a view of the water is always available.
The accommodating staff will customize every detail, so you’ll get the event that you want along with a lovely location. This is a place where water surrounds you, flocks of sea birds fly overhead, and ships slip quietly in and out of the harbor. Set sail together at California Yacht Club.
