A wedding should be iconic, just like your love story. For over a century, Hotel del Coronado has hosted generations of newlyweds, and the friends and family who adore them, in an incomparable coastal setting.

Go California casual with your toes in the sparkling sand at an effortless beach ceremony. Or, channel the glamour of Old Hollywood under the breathtaking wood-domed ceilings and chandeliers of the Crown Room or Ocean Ballroom. With gorgeous beachfront lawns, tropical gardens, and oceanfront terraces to choose from, The Del has the perfect venue for weddings of all sizes. 

Few places in California fulfill the dream of exchanging vows on the beach and having a reception in the sand with the ease The Del provides. Best of all, The Del’s private beach is one of the few places in California where you can host a reception right on the sand. Wow your guests with fireworks, skydive into your reception, host a concert on the beach, or relax with beach games and s’mores around a bonfire. If you can dream it, our team can make it a reality. 

A Legendary Event
Transform your wedding into the destination experience of a lifetime for your family and friends. From plush beach daybeds and private pool cabanas to spa parties and sunset sails, The Del has it all. And with the resort located just minutes from downtown San Diego, you can easily explore the local attractions and treat your friends to a round of golf, brewery tours, baseball games and more. Some weddings make memories, ours make history.
