Fairytale Weddings at The DelWords by Hotel Del Coronado
Romance and The Del go hand in hand as the legendary oceanfront hotel has a 130-plus year history of love stories, celebrity romances and fairytale weddings. With its iconic red turrets, stunning architecture and oceanfront Southern California locale, Hotel del Coronado has all the right elements for a dream-come-true wedding. The 28-acre property on Coronado Island is a beachfront playground and the perfect place to create lifelong memories.
With its own private beach, The Del offers the magical experience of a seaside ceremony to a soundtrack of crashing waves. Exchange vows on golden sand, enjoy a sunset reception, dine under the stars and end with fireworks filling the night sky. The majestic Windsor Lawn is another memorable locale—imagine rose petal-laced aisles and vine-wrapped altars set against a sapphire blue of the Pacific with The Del’s turret as a backdrop. For old-world glam, the Crown Room boasts vaulted wooden ceilings, crown-shaped chandeliers and old-world ambiance. The newly renovated Vista Terrace is a romantic perch in a garden setting with views of the hotel’s grand architecture, Coronado sunsets and the glistening sea.

Whether a beachfront clambake, gourmet food stations on Windsor Lawn, formal white table cloth dining, or a farewell Sunday brunch, culinary creativity is a hallmark here. Pastry chefs make sigh-inducing wedding cakes from scratch. Seafood-centric Serẽa, with its farm-fresh ingredients, sustainable catch and a renowned chef is another dazzling reception site for up to 200 guests.
