The California coast is the epitome of laid-back luxury, boasting dramatic bluffs and ocean views that need little else to create an unforgettable wedding experience. As a favorite California wedding destination, The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel has long been the venue of choice for several Wedding Style couples looking for a modern and elegant retreat. After a wedding, couples can linger for a few days to revel in the peace and tranquility of Laguna Niguel – or, for those opting to have a private micro wedding, The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel is the perfect place to honeymoon safely and satiate that sense of wanderlust. Even for a luxurious staycation, it’s the ultimate California haven that welcomes the entire family and furry friends.

One of the most remarkable aspects of The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel is how the hotel actively caters to all faiths, traditions, and tastes. For Desiree and Amir’s Persian wedding, an outdoor setting provided an exquisite stage for a flower-filled wedding ceremony and sofreh setup. Cortney and Adam chose to have a Spanish-inspired wedding reception, which made for a stunning white ballroom celebration peppered with pops of crimson. Kjellrun and Brian wanted a California wedding destination that would provide guests with an authentic Pacific coast experience, and Laguna Niguel couldn’t have been more fitting for their black-tie affair. And for Simi and Kevin’s fusion wedding, the couple and their guests experienced several gorgeous American and Sikh events onsite. The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel even has a dedicated outside caterer to curate custom menus for Indian weddings.

Dining at The Ritz is a special event, in and of itself. Visitors can enjoy handcrafted drinks at 180blu, which overlooks Salt Creek Beach from 150 feet up, or indulge at restaurants like RAYA, enoSTEAK, and The Market Place. Chefs here use top of the line ingredients like pasture-raised, organic beef and sustainable seafood so guests always leave with true taste of California’s best culinary offerings.

“Our ladies and gentlemen are the key in our service commitment,” says Shannon Gilbert, Director of Sales and Marketing. “We strive to exceed expectations and create lasting memories for couples and their families to cherish for a lifetime. Weddings at our romantic surfside retreat invite couples and their loved ones to celebrate one of the most special days of their lives and experience The Ritz-Carlton’s legendary service and luxury accommodations.”
