Best Wedding Venue in Santa Monica
Stage your entire Santa Monica destination wedding here — from rehearsal to ceremony to farewells — at our secluded five-star urban resort. Say your vows on a bluff high above the blue Pacific, then gather your guests at The Miramar. Primp at the spa, dine and prep together, then savor the ceremony, celebrate and play — at our sunkissed Southern California resort. It all happens here at the Fairmont Miramar, the very best weddings venue near Santa Monica Beach.
We are professional event planners who are creative, imaginative and resourceful, not to mention well connected, savvy and service-oriented, and we are ready to bring your dreams to life. Just relax and enjoy the process while we walk you through every step of your wedding planning journey.
We’ll lay out your options — perhaps starting the Big Day under the delightful 130-foot canopy of our century-plus-old Moreton fig tree, then elevating the romance with dancing and feasting in an exquisitely decorated crystal chandelier and candlelit ballroom — or an intimate reception in our sophisticated Jones Library. Match your style to our many elegant and original possibilities — the sky’s the limit!
We will also arrange unlimited wellness classes for you and the wedding party at exhale spa and fitness center, a bridal beauty consultation at Glam+Go, a haircut or shave at Lloyd’s Barbershop and your wedding night stay in one of our beautiful Signature Suites. All services are conveniently located at the resort, and all are complimentary as part of your wedding experience at The Miramar.

Set the tone from the outset with your rehearsal dinner in one of our lovely intimate spaces: FIG restaurant’s sunny bistro-style atrium, for one, or our Santa Monica-style Sunset Terrace with burbling fountain, flickering firepit and sweeping ocean views. The private dining room at FIG serves award winning, critically acclaimed seasonal farmers’ market-inspired cuisine sourced locally.
You’ll only find so many inventive, inspiring, flexible options for your Southern California reception at The Miramar. Celebrate in our verdant garden under balmy blue skies, in serene sophistication in our stylish library or in an ornately decorated ballroom under sparkling crystal chandeliers in traditional grandeur. We’ve got the perfect venue for any kind of gala mood, fashion or personal style.
Start the rest of your life together under the enormous canopy of our 100-plus-year-old landmark Moreton Bay fig tree, a Santa Monica historical monument and the second-largest of its kind in California. The circular drive surrounding the tree flanked by ferns, flowers and palms is one of our most magical, in-demand spots for exchanging vows.
post wedding brunch
Feast al fresco on the patio and share stories with guests about the momentous celebration over farm-fresh California cuisine impeccably prepared and served. We can set your sumptuous table in the Miramar Gardens or on The Bungalow Deck overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A post-wedding brunch is a wonderful opportunity to reflect back on your wedding day, recount stand-out moments and show family and friends how meaningful the gathering is for you two — and always will be.
one year later
Come back for your first anniversary and celebrate with us again. We’re delighted to offer our Miramar wedding couples a complimentary overnight stay in one of our premiere guest rooms in honor of their first year of marriage. Toast year No. 1 in style — and here’s to many more happy years together!
four legged friends
Tie the knot with your pets in tow. We consider our four-legged friends part of the family, so bring them along to join the occasion. We’ll pamper your pet (almost) as much as you on the Big Day with a plush in-room dog bed, canine treats and access to any outdoor venue for your wedding ceremony or reception. And, of course, wedding pets stay with you at no extra charge.
