Newport Beach Wedding Venue
690 Newport Center Drive
Newport Beach, California 92660
Overlooking the nearby isles of Balboa and Lido, as well as Catalina and the shining sea, there’s a standout wedding venue in swanky Newport Beach. From Island Hotel’s jasmine and lily-scented lobby and richly appointed lounge areas to its lushly landscaped grounds spiked with giant birds of paradise, no detail is overlooked in this Tommy Bahama-inspired setting. The moment your guests arrive at this oasis, they’ll experience the casual elegance of “The Center of Coastal Luxury.”
For weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners and post-celebration brunches, there’s an array of options and amenities. All wedding couples enjoy use of his-and-hers changing suites with roomy closets, private sitting rooms and spectacular views of the urban landscape fronting the ocean. Both brides and grooms will appreciate the chance to get ready in style, while calming pre-wedding jitters in a space other than their honeymoon suite. For additional renewal and relaxation, the hotel’s 4,000-square-foot water-themed spa offers a plethora of island-inspired massages, facials and beauty treatments.
Large affairs work well in the beautifully renovated Ballroom. A soft color palette of gold, tan and sage green provides a neutral backdrop, and cascading crystal chandeliers add a touch of glamour. The adjoining private prefunction room is perfect for mingling and passing hors d’oeuvres, while you and your photographer take photos elsewhere on the hotel’s verdant grounds.
More intimate receptions are held in the sun-filled Cabana Room, a sophisticated space that feels like a garden conservatory. Plantation-shuttered floor-to-ceiling windows and folding glass panels open onto a wraparound patio lined with potted palms and vibrant flowers, creating a wonderful indoor-outdoor flow. Wedding ceremonies can take place on the adjacent terrace, where luxuriant foliage and a 17-foot fireplace add warmth to the poolside enclave.
At all venues on the property, you’ll be treated to superior service and culinary excellence. Out-of-town guests will also enjoy accommodations in spacious rooms or suites—most with coastal views—as well as the heated pool and all the services of the on-site fitness center and The Spa at Island Hotel. For anyone in your party who wants to explore the area, the hotel is close to everything that defines upscale Orange County—sparkling beaches, championship golf courses, maritime recreation in nearby Newport Harbor and world-class shopping at adjacent Fashion Island.
No matter what the occasion, you’ll be delighted with Island Hotel’s resort-like atmosphere and professional staff.
