Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

Those who know L'Auberge Del Mar love it; those who are discovering it for the first time fall for it instantly. Upon arrival, you’ll immediately be captivated by picturesque ocean views and enveloped by the Living Room’s luxurious setting and warm hospitality. Nestled among gardens on a bluff overlooking miles of pristine beach, sandy coves, and crashing waves, this intimate seaside resort is not only a great getaway, it's a wonderful place for your wedding.

Ceremonies here are magical on the Pacific Terrace, an expansive rooftop patio with a sweeping view over the treetops down to the sea. During the day it's caressed by sun-warmed breezes, and in the early evening it's a perfect vantage point for enjoying the sunset. No wonder this spot was nominated by The California Guide Book as the "Best Place To Kiss" in Southern California.

If you want to get married even closer to the ocean, opt for Seagrove Park. A shaded path leads from L'Auberge Del Mar to a grassy knoll at the water's edge where you'll say your vows. Torrey pine trees dot the grass, and the view extends from Oceanside to La Jolla.

Once the sun has set, the Pacific Terrace transforms into an idyllic setting for enjoying your delectable, chef-curated dinner under the stars. Following the meal, the Platinum Ballroom is ideal for dancing the night away: its classic décor features contemporary crystal chandeliers that sparkle overhead, along with wall sconces that create a soft glow. French doors open onto a lovely patio with a waterfall wall, perfect for decadent late-night bites and cocktails.

Keep the celebration and bubbles flowing with a farewell brunch, enjoying delectable sweet and savory bites in the ocean breeze and reliving memories of your unforgettable wedding weekend. When the festivities have concluded, stay on for a relaxing seaside honeymoon. Most of the guest rooms have terraces, many have ocean views, and a few have fireplaces. Spa L'Auberge offers even more enticements: a full menu of soothing indulgences delivered in 10 luxurious treatment rooms. For the ultimate in togetherness, there's a private couple's garden on the spa's lush grounds, complete with a European soaking tub.
