Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

If you're looking for the coolest setting for a California coastal wedding in Orange County, you have to check out this completely reinvented venue in the heart of Surf City, USA. It delivers amazing oceanside views with an energetic Huntington Beach downtown surround and 10,000 square feet of terrific indoor/outdoor event space.

The 3,000-square-foot Epic Ballroom (divisible into thirds), its adjoining Foyer, and the adjacent Deck are all truly epic. Polished and beautifully conceived with every imaginable feature, these spaces are also FUN. The resort's new Bungalow Room and wraparound Bungalow Terrace are great for parties of up to 100 guests.

As for the cuisine, their culinary team serves up a host of tasty beach-inspired hors d'oeuvres, hand-crafted cocktails, and traditional favorites with a contemporary spin, relying on locally sourced ingredients and a generous serving of "beachy good vibes".

Of course, in addition to the experience-enhancing design, the best part of staging an event in a Kimpton resort like Shorebreak is the personalized service from the warm, welcoming staff and all of the on-site amenities. And don't forget there are 157 rooms and 39 suites here so guests (and their pets!) can easily extend their stay. With the comforting sound of waves within earshot and the enticements of Main Street, Huntington Beach at their feet, this is the ultimate destination for anyone wanting to celebrate or play in true Southern California style.
