LAGUNA CLIFFS MARRIOTT RESORT & SPA
The Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa is the perfect location for Dana Point weddings and receptions, where memories are created and lives are forever touched. Host your gathering against a truly breathtaking backdrop, overlooking the harbor from dramatic oceanfront cliffs. Consider our enchanting Victorian-style architecture, award-winning cuisine, stunning surroundings and you’ll understand why we’re such a natural favorite.
If romantic celebrations are on your agenda, then you’ll love the Laguna Cliffs Marriott, a AAA Four Diamond luxury retreat perched on the bluffs high above Dana Point. The upscale resort’s steeply pitched red-shingled roof and multipaned windows may whisper of Cape Cod, but this fresh interpretation of a New England classic has a decidedly contemporary flair. Both public and private spaces are decked out with dark woods and textured finishes like mosaic tiling and polished granite, and the lobby boasts a lofty water wall. But the star of the scene is the dramatic panorama, encompassing acres of emerald green parks, a bustling marina, and the boundless blue sea.
The Laguna Cliffs takes full advantage of its breathtaking setting by offering three beautiful outdoor locations for wedding ceremonies. The secluded Del Mar Lawn embraces a layered view of mountains, sea, and a section of shore known as “the California Riviera.” The Vue Lawn treats guests to a colorful parade of yachts and sailboats against an ocean backdrop. A third enclave, the Laguna Brick, captures glorious sunsets unfurling across the watery horizon. The resort’s ceremony packages include the setup of full wedding regalia—arches, urns, and a rose-petal aisle.
Gala receptions are staged in one of two ballrooms, each illuminated by novel pendant fixtures. A color palette that calls to mind the sea and sun-kissed sand, gold Chiavari chairs, and the soft flickering of votive candles contribute to an ambiance of sophisticated coastal elegance. Equally impressive is the award-winning catering that puts a new spin on California cuisine.
The resort staff takes your event as seriously as you do. A dedicated team of Wedding Professionals, along with your Wedding Concierge, ensures that every detail is just the way you envision.
