Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

One of Orange County's newest lifestyle brand hotels, The Renaissance Newport Beach is the perfect venue for a West Coast wedding and getaway.

This boutique hotel takes style and design to the next level, and you'll be impressed from the moment you enter its intriguing lobby. The vibrant coastal colors, eclectic props & art, and variety of sensory experiences will make you feel like you've stepped into the heart of Southern California.

The Garden Gazebo is custom-made for intimate and serene ceremonies. You'll begin by walking through an evergreen archway into the private garden, where you'll exchange vows in the charming ivory gazebo. The lovely surroundings, which are filled with multihued impatiens, tall palms, ferns, and lighting features, also serve as a picturesque backdrop for photos after the ceremony.

For your reception, you have a choice of several elegant ballrooms. In the spacious Bay Laurel Ballroom, you can dance the night away under a beautiful coffered ceiling with a breathtaking chandelier at its center. The sun room-like Orchid Terrace showcases glass sliding doors with direct views to the garden, contributing to the indoor/outdoor feel. For a quintessential Southern California party, entertain your guests in the Bamboo Garden with its fire pit, water feature, and strings of market lights overhead…or on the glorious Sky Palms pool deck, whose palm trees, umbrellas, and cabanas set the stage for a memorable al fresco celebration. The hotel's cozy bambú Wine Cellar is ideal for a rehearsal dinner or farewell brunch.

Whether you opt for a gourmet traditional dinner, interactive food stations, or outside ethnic catering, you can be assured that Renaissance Newport Beach's award-winning culinary team will exceed your expectations. Their certified wedding specialists and valued partners offer the highest level of services to create the wedding day of your dreams.

The Renaissance Newport Beach Hotel is now part of the Marriott family, and when you host your wedding here you can earn Rewarding Events Points. A great way to use them is for your honeymoon—Marriott has over 6,000 hotels worldwide, so you pick the destination!
