Atop the cliffs of Dana Point sits The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel. This grand resort offers some of the best scenery in Southern California. There’s not a place on the property where you’re not exposed to ocean views and the sea breeze. From spectacular ceremony locations to their various gorgeous ballrooms, the Ritz shouts luxury wedding. A venue like this would make your wedding effortlessly magical and memorable.

EVENT SPACES

With three stunning ceremony sites, each with a vast ocean view, you can’t go wrong! The Monarch Bay Sunset Terrace, The Bluff, and Pacific Promenade Lawn uniquely offer seaside ceremonies while maintaining the intimate feel for your private event. 

The Dana Lawn presents a spacious layout for any part of your wedding day. Utilizing this space for cocktail hour is one of our favorites! Guests are ushered from the ceremony to the Dana Lawn where they can sip, snack, and socialize on your lush furniture rentals while still enjoying that ocean view. 

Whether you’re looking for an indoor or outdoor reception, The Ritz has got you covered. With five fabulous ballrooms and the option to use any of the three lawns for an outdoor cocktail hour or all-outdoor wedding reception, you’ll have a hard time choosing just one! The Plaza, The Terrace Salon, and The Pavilion ballrooms each include an outdoor balcony perfect for additional outdoor seating and some fresh sea air. The various ballrooms are individually and uniquely designed, each with a timeless and luxurious look. Guaranteed, you will find just what you’re looking for at this dreamy venue.
