If so, you will likely want to consider Bel-Air Bay Club for your Weddings. This venue is ranked by many places, including The Knot, as the #1 Malibu Wedding Venue, and it’s easy to see why this is such a popular wedding location. Close your eyes and imagine your dream wedding venue. Does it include breathtaking ocean views, gorgeous palm trees, elegant indoor space, and plenty of room for dancing?
Your Ceremony and Reception Options
When you rent this venue, the whole 31-acre property is yours exclusively for your reserved timeframe. Because of this, you really have a lot of options when it comes to where you want to get married on the property and where you want to hold your reception.
Of course, one of this property’s greatest appeals is that it does have that beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. To take full advantage of this view, many couples choose to have their ceremony on the lawn, which allows the couple to have a beautiful ocean backdrop as they exchange their vows. As you get married, you will be surrounded by flowers, palm trees, and a gorgeously manicured lawn. This location is also popular because it can accommodate up to 550 guests, allowing you to have a large wedding celebration.
Some couples prefer to get married inside, or sometimes the weather does not cooperate. When that’s the case, the Living Room is another great option for your ceremony. You have two Living Room choices. With a ceremony in front of the Lanai Windows, you still get the Pacific Ocean as a wedding backdrop, and you can have up to 175 guests.
The other Living Room option is a Fireplace ceremony. Instead of the ocean, you will have a beautiful fireplace backdrop. This option can seat up to 200 guests. Another 20 can be added in the Lanai, but their view of the ceremony will be obstructed. Overall, the Living Room is a good option for couples who want a smaller, more intimate ceremony.
Many couples choose to take advantage of the spacious nature of the property when it comes time for their reception. The Dining Room, Music Room, and Living Room may all be used for things such as dinner, dancing, and cocktails. Then there’s the deck and patio where guests can talk and get some fresh air. With the combined indoor space, the property can accommodate up to 550 people. As you are reserving the whole property, they do request that you have a minimum of at least 75 guests.
One really great thing about this property is that even if rain or other weather conditions cause most, or all, of the celebration to have to take place inside, your guests can still enjoy the ocean view. Large windows in every room provide wonderful views of the coastline.
High-quality vendors are an important part of any wedding celebration. Catering at Bel-Air Bay Club is provided by the venue. Once you have booked your event, you can schedule a tasting. At that time, you can discuss your culinary desires. I can assure you that you and your guests will not be disappointed with this award-winning food.
If this is a destination wedding or if you are unfamiliar with vendors in the area, you are definitely in luck. The venue has a list of local vendors that they have worked with in the past. This list includes things like officiants, musical entertainment (both bands and DJs), florists, and wedding cake companies. They include email addresses and websites for all their suggested vendors. This is great because you can pick the services that fit your needs best. By using this list of local vendors, you can be assured that they are familiar with the property and that they have a reputation for providing great service.
The Great Photographs at Bel-Air bay Club.
As a photographer, I love this venue. There are so many opportunities for great pictures. I encourage you to look at the pictures I took at the Bel-Air Bay Club. I think some of the best pictures are the ones that show the venue’s historic beauty combined with nature’s charm. While the venue is gorgeous during the day, there are also several pictures that demonstrate how lovely it looks lit up at night.
I love my job as a wedding photographer, and I would enjoy working with you on your special day. If you are interested in learning more about my services, let me know.
