Laguna Beach Wedding Venue
1289 South Coast Highway
Laguna Beach, California 92651
Even in a town as picturesque as Laguna Beach, the utterly charming La Casa del Camino is in a class by itself. With an alluring mix of waterfront location, early Spanish Mediterranean architecture and expansive views of the Pacific Ocean, this landmark boutique hotel is a standout choice for a romantic wedding celebration.
Built in 1929 and distinguished by its red-tiled roof, classic archways and wooden balconies, this beachside gem provides a tantalizing peek at a time when it was a favorite getaway for Hollywood stars and starlets. Combine that historic cachet with what today’s La Casa del Camino has to offer—the hip energy of its wildly popular K’ya Bistro Bar and its open-air rooftop retreat with unparalleled ocean vistas—and you get the quintessential Laguna Beach experience.
The first thing that greets you here is the beautiful lobby, a welcoming Spanish-Mediterraneanstyle space with high plaster ceilings accented with wooden crossbeams. There’s a baby grand piano off to the right, while on the left you’ll find an adobe-style fireplace topped with a tiled niche displaying flickering candles that cast a warm glow. This large-yet-cozy setting is perfect for hosting friends and family for cocktails, dinner or dancing.
But without doubt, the pièce de résistance at La Casa del Camino is its Rooftop Lounge. The only one like it in Laguna Beach, it serves up a 360-degree panorama with head-on ocean views. This sprawling, wraparound deck and full-service bar is a spectacular wedding site: You can make a dramatic entrance through a tile-roofed private portal and exchange vows in front of an infinite expanse of sparkling blue water. Your nearest and dearest gather around you in semicircular seating, giving everyone a great vantage for watching the ceremony. Afterwards, invite everyone to enjoy an al fresco toast and bask in the cool marine breezes before sitting down at beautifully appointed tables. Then dine in the company of the surrounding sea and sky.
And if one perfect day is just not enough, you might want to consider reserving the entire hotel for a weekend. Their Spanish-style guest rooms are done in rich, warm tones and feature intricately hand-carved wood furnishings, while the ten Surf Suites offer a more contemporary “beach” vibe. Each one-of-a-kind suite has been branded by a different surf company—like Rip Curl, Roxy, Quiksilver, and Billabong—and incorporates design elements and colors selected by that company. Your out-of-town guests will love spending an extra day or two here, so that they can truly savor their time with you at this wonderful home-away-from-home.
